What did you do to your WR today?

crashed it - Since getting my 07, not having owned a bike in 19 yrs, I've wondered how my "first" fall was going to feel as I am a huge baby when it comes to pain. Well tonight I found out.....riding in the backyard with my boys, going too fast trying to miss the fence and round a tree, I locked the front tire up and went over as I was turning. Hit my quads hard on the handle bar and somehow messed up my left thumb nail, it looks like it folded and man does it hurt. Also my left toes are slightly swollen - I wasnt wearing my riding boots - that wont happen again.

My wife wasn't too pleased, but I'm no worse for the wear.

I dropped off my clutch cover at my buddys machine shop to modify it for the wristpin oil nozzle injector thing. Mine is the the old style 2003 casting without a boss made for it so we are making a boss and pressing it into the case, either gonna be awesome one of a kind mod or I'll be buying a new clutch cover!

Whoo hoo, finished up my wrist pin oil nozzle mod, threw in a new coolant shaft and seals while I was in there too. Booked a room in TN for the Loretta Lynn trail ride this weekend too! Suppose to be great weather this weekend, so excited to get knobbies on dirt for the first time this year!

Put appropriate shoes (Michelin dessert + mousse) and 13 liter tank, uploaded tracks to the GPS and rode some 2013 Dakar trails in Catamarca, Argentina. 500km of dunes and stone between 2000 and 4500 m over sea level.

      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.
