What did you do to your WR today?

4,502 posts in this topic

Thats the first thing I replaced followed by a needed voltage regulator/rectifier.

So I started do the tests in the manual yesturday and the (resistance) pick up coil measured strange...

Then the bike wouldn't even run long enough to do the voltage tests ... so today I ordered

a Ricky Stator DC setup, hopefully its here by friday .

Didn't see that you had already did that.

Today i have fitted new impeller shaft, impeller, seals and an oil and filter change after a water seal failure a coulpe of weeks ago. After a good ride today it seems the new seal has worked and there is no oil/water contamination so with any luck I have not warped the head or done any damage to the head gasket.

I have also fitted new mudguards and an e bay bargain of a Magura hydraulic clutch conversion which for the first time ever for a bargain works first time!

Loaded the WR in the truck for the 2 hr drive to our trail system and worked trail in the am, then rode two loops after lunch with two of my best buddies. Dirt was very nice today on new S12's. It was like velcro.image.jpg

Finally took it out for a good trail ride since making it street legal. Now that I have a ride on the set up I need to make some changes. Gearing needs to go back to close to where I had it when it was off road only(don't plan on logging too many high speed miles I have a FZ1 for that),the MT21's got to go I just don't like them for most surfaces. The only place I do like them is on packed gravel without a lot of marbles on top. And finally need to re adjust the Rekluse EXP.

Washed it, installed a new chain guide block and made a grab handle out of an old paracord bracelet.

Any tips on how to make one? I don't have any cord put I definitely need to put something like this on the front of my bike. Thanks!

I just ordered some paracord and looked up youtube videos and whatnot online and went for it. Made a few for friends and some zipper pulls too. Paracord is cheap so buy extra.

I started it today ...and it actually ran :banana: :banana: :banana:

Last weekend , in an effort to solve my cutting out issue I installed a new Ricky Stator setup

the bike put up a good fight but I got it in there.

IMG2922_zps78904f65.jpg

Got the lights all wired to a switch and and all was good.......started it up and 30 seconds later it died and wouldn't refire .

So there I was planning my suicide, and decided to pull apart the splice I did for the tach lead to +coil wire

( I used one of these )

IMG2969_zps4f197257.jpg

Once I pulled it apart I saw the metal part of the splice had cut thru most of the coil wire that had maybe only

8 strands left intact . I hope this is the problem.

I hope you've got it figured out. Still running?

I would stay away from those splicers. I had one cut through a wire eventually and it was on there for years. Taking the extra time to solder it or installing some of those barrel plugs that Baja Designs uses would probably be best. I needed a quick fix since I was going the next day and don't have a soldering iron or any connectors to I just twisted the wires together really tight and put a good layer of heat shrink over it.

SIGH......It did the same crap ran perfect for a bit then just stopped......

So my buddy let me take his for a spin, after 2 months without riding I was not gentle to the

bike or myself. I got a lot of riding/adrenaline in, in a short amount of time thats for sure.

IMG2984_zpscc0bc5c1.jpg

I really feel it is electrical, so that leaves me with my CDI , that my buddy tried on his bike in his garage already and it

ran fine , but I need to put his CDI on my bike and take it for a ride to really test. Hhmm how do I do that ?

I have got it ! I should get said riding buddy too hammerd to drive home and convince him to lock his bike

in my garage so it doesnt get stolen then swap CDI's ( he said it was cool ) . No that won't work ....or will it ??

      For sale is my 2015 Beta 350RR. 2734 miles and 120 hours. Just had some top end work done by Sierra BMW and BETA. Fresh air filter and oil. This is an awesome dual sport bike. Or you can strip the lights and turn signals and have a single track weapon, your choice. This bike will do it all. Unfortunately, I've been riding my 2 stroke lately and don't have room or the time to maintain 2 bikes. My loss is your gain! Front tire only has a few rides on it, the rear needs to be changed. Beta's are super reliable and amazing machines that rival KTM and Husky! 

      -Forks revalved by LT-Racing for 210# rider w/gear
      -Mylers oversized radiators and bulletproof radiator guards
      -Folding ARC clutch and brake levers (I have the stock levers as well)
      -3.1 gallon tank. (I also have the stock tank)
      -Seat concepts dual sport seat (also includes the stock seat with guts foam and motoseat seat cover)
      -FMF powercore 4 with silent core/spark arrestor. I've got the stock spark arrestor as well. Racing compliant!
      -Boano racing billet brake pedal with brake tip
      -FJ Fasst co. brake clevis
      -Billet chain blocks
      -upgraded steel oil pump gears- the plastic stock ones are prone to failure
      -Force accessories case saver
      -TMD skid plate (not pictured but will be on the bike)

      Extras:
      Acerbis X-factor handguards

      extra tubes and rimlocks
      Printed and bound owners manual and service manual
      10mm billet bar risers

      It's a dirt bike so it has some cosmetic damage. Some chipped plastic and scratches on the swingarm. 

      Can send more pictures/info upon request

      I have a 1987 yamaha tt 225 that needs a new carburetor.  I've looked EVERYWHERE online and can't find an original.  Does anyone know a good replacement one I can put on it? 
    • By Code54

      Very hard to tell this one from new.  (Other than a little bit of dirt and a few minor scratches)
      VERY low hrs and easy riding  - of course it runs great
      Has both Electric Start and kick start backup (also has Pig tails for battery tender installed)
      BBR Alum. Frame cradle with skid plate (Over $150 and protects the bike – Top of the line)
      Fisher Fab House Chain guide (Factory one is known to be an issue so I replaced it with a top of the line guide – runs about $50)
      Have title in hand
      Selling for ONLY $2000 WITH the extras!!!! (yes, the price is firm and we only accept cash - no shippers or scammers...)
       
      Only reason I am selling is I want to look into buying a trials bike and don’t really need two dirtbikes.

      Amazing bike but due to family obligations it sits in my garage most of the time. The bike has maybe 5 hours on it and runs like new. It comes with a GYTR FMF silencer with spark arrestor. There are some scratches on the plastic and and pipe from trail riding but that's what it is made for and its only cosmetic. The bike has been maintained and garage kept. If you have any questions please text me at (415)three 4 two- 4 five 8 six.

      So I just did a rebuild on my 98 Yz80, and it wont start. At first, we put the gaskets on wrong, so coolant was leaking everywhere. After we fixed that, and put everything back into place again, piston went up and down smoothly, and it has great compression. The problem is, it does not want to start. Im not really sure what to do, because before, my compression was very low, so I did a rebuild, but now it still does not start. So I need help.
