Isnt this a what did you do to your WR thread? Not a what did you do with your family this weekend thread?

At least hes adding something worth seeing, unlike your post which has nothing to do with anything on this forum.

I picked up a GYTR tuner a few days back and grabbed the GYTR tip for the stock exhaust yesterday. It sounds better without being too loud, and gives it a bit more kick through the power band. Currently I have been running the Aussie map but just switched to the mid range power map from Yamaha and am getting ready to go tool around before work.

Hopefully Sunday .

Gonna prep it with acetone , 2 hrs of taping off and then warm the cans in the sun and then just let her rip !

The only reason I am trying it is cause you can just peel it off , no harm no foul.

Stuff works great and you can take it off if you do not like...get to it...

Wont that stuff scratch off to easily? I would think it would rub off in one ride just where the boots rub the frame?

Well it could if you your boot were able to get a edge...I wrapped my frame..plastidip is super strong but if you start rubbing the edge you can peel it off..you won't just start chipping it like paint...

Upgraded my super faithful 2004 vintage wr450 with a brand new 2012 model. Hopefully this new one is equally as reliable and no fuss. Inital review is it handles way better and hauls ass.

What are you planning to about the ECU? The reason I ask is because I may be upgrading and know, in order to reach it's full potential, you have to change the ECU or something. I know there have been threads on this previously but want some more information.

The aus delivered wr450s already have the so called competition ecu, so all you need is a small loom extention and the power tuner plugs in and away you go. I had my dealer do the derestriction and install some of the yamaha supplied comp parts.

Have tried he sand map and another custom linear map which I am loving

      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
      a few spare plastics pieces
      key switch with plug and play wiring
      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.
