What did you do to your WR today?

4,502 posts in this topic

Tusk Dual sport kit, risers, Fatbars salvaged off my buddy's ktm, and a Trailtech vapour. Just DOT tires and the plate mount left to go. Got my WR 2 weeks ago and I LOVE IT!!!! all our riding areas are underwater right now though :(. got out for a ride today on the Dakar and everything is closed.

still2smokin where was that? Looks like my kind of place.

Its in the Elkins Flat OHV area. You can get pretty close to these by bike. Riding boots are not

recommended for the rest of the hike in and out though . I could be a little more specific :devil:

I'll have to get down there sometime. More specific would be awesome. You can pm if you want to keep it quiet.

The Turn Tech battery showed up today. It is so lite it feels empty,

but it turns the bike over quite a bit faster than when my last battery was new !

I bought the 5ah size and it is a perfect fit and no shimming was required.

Bought it and brought it home... 2009 WR 450.

Grew up racing dirtbikes but stopped riding dirt about 25 years ago.

Have been riding street for the past 10, and raced downhill mountainbikes, but can't wait to get back to trail riding.

Yesterday I took off my aluminum skid plate and took it to the Line-X shop near my home. Charged me 40 bucks to prime with epoxy and spray 4 coats on. Got it back today and put it on the bike. Mounting holes still able to fit screws in no problems, actually tightened up the fit perfectly. Beofore I had just glued some rubber in between the skid plate and frame to reduce noise and friction on the frame, this is a much better solution. Almost like a rubber or plastic sprayed on but super tough. Took it out for a ride with the Line-X, even quieter. Love the Line-X product, going back tomorow to get my truck bed done.

      I have a 1995 yz125 2t and the thing runs pretty good, well at least it seems to have no issues but it does not need the choke to start the bike. I changed the main, idle, and needle jets all to factory specs for my temperature and altitude. The bike will start first kick when 100% cold and will start first kick when warm but it just does not need the choke. So I'm wondering if I'm hindering my bikes performance in a way because it does not need the choke. Suggestions?

      Hey guys,
      So I recently just went through the bike and replaced the exhaust cam on my 2002 yz250f with an autodecompression cam out of a 2004 model.  I then shimmed the valves, cleaned the carb, and replaced the spark plug.  Now it won't start regardless of whether or not I try to kick it or bump it.  It seems like as I keep kicking it it goes through periods of extremely high compression where it is very hard to kick and then periods of low compression where it is a little easier to kick.  Either way I can't get the bike to start.  Any ideas?

      Used PRO TAPER platform 2.3 pegs with standard height inserts. These are removed from a 2011 YZ 125 but should fit all current era YZ and YZF's. Double check before purchasing. I just sharpened the teeth up a bit with a file. These retail for $190 and most online retailers have for $170. You can buy replacement inserts that are higher or lower if desired. 
      Taken from Pro Taper's site:
      The 2.3 Platform Pegs feature a unique replaceable cleat design for unrivaled customizability. All necessary mounting hardware is included, as well as the standard magnesium-colored cleats. Replacement cleats incorporate ProTaper’s exclusive Traction Arc Design and are available in various heights, colors, and materials to directly suit each rider’s needs.

      Hello everyone, been looking around on here for a couple weeks and figured I'd finally drop my question for some feedback. Looking for a bike, obviously or I'd be on a different forum, somewhere in the 250/300 range. Heres some info about me and the typical riding I'll be doing..
      My specs: Male, 190 lbs, 5'10, 28 years old. 
      Riding Experience: Two wheel mostly street, R6, R1, Harley etc. I've ridden most of em. Off road has been mostly quad, except one trip down the trails on a Yamaha 450 2t (holy moses that was quick). Ridden quads for a few years, Polaris 850, Yamaha/Honda 250's (banshee style) at Silver Lake and on trails. Trails we ride are in Grayling which are a mix of hard pack and loose sand (tank trails). 
      Planned Riding: the above mentioned sand dunes and trails. Doubt I'll ever touch an actual Mx track. Will use a paddle tire when in the dunes. In my mind I've narrowed it down to the KTM 250/300 XCW or Yamaha YZ250X. Not really a Honda fan. 
      Not trying to open another KTM vs Yamaha thread, Ive read plenty of those. Just looking for some feedback and ensure these are the bikes I should be interested in and if 2 stroke should be my route? I like the easy maintenance but also like the idea of fuel injected 4t. I don't want to be beating the heck out of a 4t in the dunes and turn it into a bigger $ pit than these toys are already. I would prefer having a headlight, 250X does not come with one while both KTM's do (unless I go Yamaha 4t with the WR250f). Thanks for your feedback..

      I am looking for a YZ125 and have found a 99 for 1300 and an 03 for 1600 both in pretty nice condition. Obviously going to negotiate the prices down however I was wondering which one you guys would suggest. Ive been doing research and know that the 03 is lighter with a modified frame though it has a 5 speed. The 99 motor is well liked for the power and reliability.
      I will be doing strictly trail riding so whats the better option here?
