Loaded it on the rack on the back of the van and bought it home after a 110 mile day including lunch at the Tomichi Creek Trading Post. Pictures after I clean up and rejet the old WR.

Went for a spin before it got too hot and humid. Mates son had a decent crash on his XR80. Not hurt but gave him a big fright. Then I went and bought some replacement bolts for ones I found missing from the WR!

Put my plate on after a long and difficult battle with the BMV!! I've never had so much trouble giving money to the government!

I did my yearly valve check on my 2002 WR426F today. Still in spec after all these years (never needed adjustment since new) and LOTS of miles (over 9,000) since I dualsported the bike 3 years ago. Cam gears and cam lobs still look like new. I change the oil every 500 to 600 miles with 15-40w Rotella T and keep the airfilter clean. What a bike!

Sold my 06. I'm kind of sad. I never won any races on it, but I've done some of the best adventure/vacation type rides on it. Lots of memories of pretty places and good friends.

Now it's time to finish setting up the new 09 I have now.

Took my WR/YZ426 for a nice long ride yesterday......runs awesome except batteries don't last very log without my WR stator thats being fixed. I guess it's time to sell the KX500 and buy a back up 4 stroker.

      Nice used vintage Don Vesco desert fuel tank for the Yamaha TT/XT500's. Removed from a '79 so may not fit the earlier models. In great shape, not sun-baked, Vesco petcock, Preston Petty cap and all mounting hardware included. Price is OBO plus shipping.

      Selling my immaculate 2016.5 KTM 250SXF Factory Edition with only 9.6hrs on it since new. Has been vet ridden and cared for. I have a clean title in hand for the bike. Bike has the following...
       -SMPro Platinum wheelset and new Dunlop MS3 tires with only a few rides on them ($1000 wheelset)
       -D.I.D ERT2 chain only a few rides
       -Orange Renthal sprocket, and 13T countershaft sprocket only a few rides
       -Mapped by Tokyo Mods for U4.4 (still have standard map also for pump gas)
       -WP AER 48mm air forks
       - FMF 4.1 titanium slip on muffler
       Bike will come with stock header pipe but still have the FMF factory Titanium slip on. Will also take off the titanium bolts and Renthal bars and put back on the stock ones. Will aslo come with triangle stand, manual, clean title, extra twin air filter, 14T countershaft sprocket, WP air pump for the forks, half a can of U4.4 fuel, and KTM tool kit. NO TRADES. NO FINANCING. NO LOWBALLERS. Bike is in showroom condition and the Factory Editions are very hard to find used in this kind of shape or new. $6800 price is FIRM.

      I added skateboard grip tape to the frame by my pegs and on the subframe for extra grip.

      I just ordered a piston kit for my 1998 yz80, and it does not fit into my cylinder. I can't really remember if its a 47.5 mm or 47, i'm pretty sure it's a 47.5 but it just does not fit into my cylinder. My cylinder does have a big groove in it, so do I need a new cylinder for it to fit, or a new piston? Please respond ASAP!

      Hopefully I will not have to make any more posts after this but I have questions about the 04 wr snorkel. Before it's suggested yes I did read the free mod guide on super Moto junkie and he shows the snorkel being removed but does not explain or show how. I tried removing the two bolts on top and the battery but it still doesn't even budge after that, is it molded in place? Also what is deemed as a clean or dirty air filter? I don't know what is supposed to be normal, upon looking at mine there was a good amount of thick black grease that I wiped out so I have no idea how long this one has been used or last cleaned. I bought a no toil filter to replace the current one since I just did a rebuild and why not have a clean one in there. But if someone can enlighten me on details it would be much appreciated.
