Rode Capitol Forest for the first time...or should I say got lost in the Capitol Forest. I had 3 different maps and the trails I was on were impossible to make out on the maps. Had a good 3 hour ride anyway.20120907_090747.jpg

Went for a ride. Mates XR had some starting troubles after a water crossing.

I ended up with a flat rear tyre. was due for new rubber anyway.

After the above gave it a good wash. Have to make sure all the salt water is rinsed off!

Was cleaning the air filter (turps, soapy water, clean water) and a heap of the glue seams came apart. Might be able to glue it back together as a spare, but will pick up a couple of new ones. Annoyed that correct cleaning procedure killed a filter though!

Straightened this out

Dunlop D739 on left, Maxxis Desert IT on right. Running them both on different wheels.

Dunlop 908RR. This is the only front tire I will ever buy again

%255BUNSET%255D.jpg

New filter skins.. old one was CAKED. I run the stock filter with a filter skin on always. Keep a bag of freshly oiled skins in the truck

Super-tummy tuck

%255BUNSET%255D.jpg

super tuck - took a grinder to all the ribs.. then zip tied the upper half directly to the radiator guard. it is SOOO much narrower now. I was always catching branches and crap with the dang guards sticking out before. plus it looks 100x better.

I found that if you run your tire flat with Tubliss you should really make sure to use lots of slime. I ran the tire totally dry and flat for 40mi.. it was scorching hot at the end of the day. I have run a trials tire flat for 50mi, but with slime in the tire.. it did no damage... this was from running dry..

Finally stripped out the clamp to the airbox side and and had to whip out the Dremel to remove it.

What a fun thread, I'm happy to have a WR now to play along! No pics just yet, but I bought a plated '00 WR400 and have been swapping with parts from my '01 YZ426. So far, I have swapped the forks, shock, seat, and tank. This evening I prepped both sets of wheels for new tires that should be here Wednesday. Buncha parts should show Wed/Thurs and I'll have my work cut out for me, probably through the weekend. All in good fun! Need to sort out a speedometer for the plated bike, preferably something cableless/wireless...

      So apparently some mx fcr carbs have removable valve seats and some dont. I didnt know this and just thought mine was really stuck in there so i drilled it out. Was going to replace it anyway. But it turns out that i have the model that is not suppose to have the valve seat removed. or so i think. Is anyone aware of this difference between the same carb. Do you know where i can get another valve seat? its off a 2003 yz450f

      Hey all, recently getting into motocross again and bought a used bike from a kid who lacked on the maintenance side of things for the bike. What I have found / believe is happening is oil is leaking out of the cylinder head breather tube. Before going on my first ride with the bike I had a respectable amount of oil right in the middle of the checkered oil marks on the dip sticks. However after about 5 hours riding I checked the oil to find that it was barely even on the dip stick. I know there has been oil leaking out of the breather but could have been caused because an overflow on the oil change from the kid. I mean the bike is 8 years old maybe it is time for some top end work. On that note would a person change out the piston regardless of condition along with the rings? Is it possible the rings are just not positioned right? I would definitely do the valves while I have the bike open anyways.
       
      Any info would be greatly appreciated I just find it odd that it took 5 hours to drain, reading through other posts some guys were having puddles of oil after 20 minuets of running time.

      I live in northwest Virginia (Charlottesville area)  about an hour south of DC, I am not aware of any tracks in the area that are either public (or private but allow people to ride with permission).  Does anyone know of any good tracks in my area?
