Actually meant to say wr250r vs wr450f. Looking at an 08 and 03 respectively. Is the 450 too much for a novice even with my street experience. Or is it something that if I take it easy I can grow into?

The big differences coming from the street will be learning to use the clutch and learning to ride on loose, unpredictable surfaces. In both these cases the 250 is a better choice as it's more tractable, lighter, and has a lighter clutch pull. Can you learn this on a 450? Yes, of course. The question is how quickly will you build confidence. I'd start with the 250 and resist the urge to spend a bunch of money on it for the first year. After that if you feel like you've outgrown it you can trade up. Unless you are riding fast, wide open terrain you won't get left behind because of your bike. The wr250 is a very capable woods weapon.

So here is my 2012 WR450.

 

These were taken in Utah a few weeks ago. We have been taking a week long vacation in Utah for the last few years. Great riding and a great trail system. Not alot of single track but 1 or 2 track, road... doesn't matter much to me as long as I'm not home.

These are the upgrades I have on the bike so far. I have the GYTR skid plate and radiator guards on the bike. IMS 3gal fuel tank. Seat Concepts seat. Garim 62s. Stock exhaust but the pee shooter is removed. GYTR ecm and reprogrammer. Throttle stop replaced. And the trailer to get me anyplace I want to go.

Just bought myself a 2004 wr450 a few days back.  :ride: 
As it came with a heap of extras, and i had time to spare, i installed the following:

Whipps bashplate
acerbis handguards
Sgb gripper seat
Renthal gold bars
Clark long range tank with dual reserve setup  :thumbsup: 
And an aussie made staintune exhaust.
Oh, and a fresh set of radiator shrouds and graphics.

Looks awesome all kitted out, but i must say i am very impressed with this bike even though its an 04.
Love the power of this trails weapon but only time will tell in reliability department :D  
Lets hope this yami outlasts me  :confused:

      So apparently some mx fcr carbs have removable valve seats and some dont. I didnt know this and just thought mine was really stuck in there so i drilled it out. Was going to replace it anyway. But it turns out that i have the model that is not suppose to have the valve seat removed. or so i think. Is anyone aware of this difference between the same carb. Do you know where i can get another valve seat? its off a 2003 yz450f

      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?
