What did you do to your WR today?

4,495 posts in this topic

I took the snorkel off my 2008 WR250Fs air box. It made a huge improvement!! It helped to get rid of bogging in the lower RPMs of higher gears. So far I've done all the "free mods"-- Grey wire, baffle removal, throttle stop removal, and snorkel removal. It's a completely different bike now, and none of it cost me anything! I was thinking about getting a FMF slip-on and re-jetting, but its running so good right now I'm not sure I wanna spend the money. I am thinking about getting hand guards- any suggestions?

what is your jetting?? Krannie is a pretty resourceful dude. I havent rejetted yet.. plug still lookspretty good.. might bump the main up to a 168. I use the stock Lexx tip.. I tied the others they sold, found the stock quiet one is the best all around. power isnt worth the noise

168 main

48 pilot

40 leak

1.5 mix screw

blue JD needle 3rd clip

I think I am damn close and who knows maybe my failing coil could have been the culprit (probably not).

This whole time I have been trying to adjust the fuel mix screw the wrong way :banghead: .

Which gives me hope that I can get rid of the issue, its not really a problem on the

faster flowing trails, but on the slow technical 1st gear stuff it causes a lot of stalling.

I looked at my WR and said to self , wish I could have DC power like this on my YZ250 ...

Why would you want DC power on your YZ? I have a WR400 and don't miss not having any DC power.

Cycra pro-bend all the way! As far as FMF go with the Q-4 and keep our trails open!

It ran a total of 2.5 miles today !

Coasted 1.5 miles and pushed another 1 mile back to the truck .

Same thing as before runs great for a few miles then it just dies out .

It will only restart while holding the throttle open a little but still dies out after a few seconds

AAAARRRRGGGGHHHH !!!! I am not a happy camper.

I have no patience tonight for trouble shooting but I am thinking ----- Carb, stator or CDI.

Weird it didnot want to even try starting w/ starting fluid, and when I drained the fuel from the carb

it seemed like a rediculous amout of gas came out before it emptied. Once empty w/ gas off

it would fire and idle for a while the die.

Maybe float/needle issue.

Luckily my buddy has an 06 wr450 and is willing to loan me his carb etc. to aid in

troubleshooting.

Kissed her goodbye :cry: , and stored her away in a storage shed in Baja. :thumbsup:

Now I can fly in whenever I want too, and ride in total paradise!!! :ride: :ride: :ride:

She's deserved the right to a nice retirement. She's been very, very, very good to me!!!

Finally laced up my new black excel rear and spooned on the tire. Waiting on front rim and spoke kit, new S-12 tire, and my suspension to show up. Hoping to get out and shred some singletrack this weekend. I need some woods time.

Uncorked my 450SM fully. AIS delete, Adjustable fuel screw, short throttle stop, gray wire mod, and rejet. My bike starts easier, pulls harder and runs smoother now. I can't wait till I can really get out and rip around.

      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?

      Hello,
      For this summer, I was looking for a project. As a desert/trial, and occasionally single track rider from Southern California, any time of the year works for a build like this.
      I grew up riding two-stroke and after a couple years on four strokes, I want to return to the enduro king. However, KTM and Husky sell their bikes for quite a high price tag.
      So, I have decided I want to take an older two stroke motocross bike i.e. cr250, yz250, etc., and make it the ultimate desert bike for significantly less than a new KTM.
      I am not loyal to one brand, but I have always loved Honda and spent a grand a month ago on all new gear with Honda's name plastered all over it. 
      I know all the mods I want to do the bikes to make them enduro/desert ready: heavy flywheel, 18 inch rear wheel, new exhaust, steering stabilizer, etc.
      What I need help in is I don't know what bikes I can install a wide ratio transmission in. I know yz250 can take a 400 or 426 transmission, but can any other brand?
      I would like to see a cr250 with the gears of a 450x rippin through the desert. I like the steel frame for off road use, and I just need some advice on the best bike for this conversion.
      Thanks
