AdjUsted chain set rear preload. Added some more studs and put 18 miles on it on snow covered dirt roads glare icetrails you can't walk on but the screws held great and didnt pull out or wear to much. Its breaking in nicely and I'm gonna order the stuff to decork it tonight.

Ummm, is that filter oil? I dont want to insult you or anything but thats supposed to be there...... dirty or over oiled air filter can cause hard starting.

It must be filter oil.I didn't think of that.Its ok i dont insult easily.I don't know much about bikes other than how to give it throttle.

Went riding at Carnegie yesterday and took a couple of laps on the track.

Installed a set of Windam bend Fasst Flexx bars. They look great, but time will tell how much they help with arm pump and occasional hands going numb. I had some Pro Taper pillow top grips laying around, so I went with those for now (even though I got a new set of Renthal Kevlar dual compounds to replace the old ones). I'll look at getting my handguards back on after I decide how I want to mount them - not really planning to buy the very pricey BRP mounting set. I don't really need them at the moment since I ride a sand track and dunes mostly right now anyway. But I'm really looking forward to seeing how these bars work out.

Next up is to wire in a couple of switches to get rid of that light/blinker/horn control that is ugly and takes up space and doesn't get used.1389678376130.jpg

I put one of those tusk kits on my bike. Signal lights are realy low quality and most of it has actualy stopped working now. Switches are crap too. Honestly id buy just the harness, the flasher unit, the horn, maybe the bar switch just to have the harness. Sub in hdb switches and better signals. Hand guards in the kit are complete garbage. Good for wind only.

Put 20 miles on it. I'm up to 48 now. Wow is all I can say. I took a 4 miles section of snomo trail since well the 5 inches of rain lately peed on that season. Let me tell ya studded up on hard packed/ice groomed trail is awesome. Ready to uncork it now please.

Just finished mine and I agree. I guess you get what you pay for. I'm thinking I should've bought the kit from Baja Designs or SICASS.

Nice! How's the pull and modulation compared to stock? Any special fab required or was it bolt on?

I always use my index vinger and the pull is noticeable lighter compared to stock. The only thing i did was bend the bracket so the slave fitted properly.

I just installed a Tusk oversized brake kit from RMATV. It's an easy job and everything fit perfectly. I'll take it out later today and see how much of a difference it makes.

Just note with the Tusk kit they left off the tab that holds the small bracket that stabilizes the brake line (2nd picture). It'll be fine without it.

Put my steering damper clamp back on AGAIN, damn thing has popped off at least 6 times now.

 

Swing arm pivot bolt somehow got way loose and swing had slop, torqued it back down and seems ok

but I am gonna change out the bearings anyway.

Been riding it a lot lately !  Running awesome and then ...... both legs got really hot and then the bike kept dying.

 

Opened the gas tank and a huge whoosh ? Go a few more miles and same thing .

Figured bad gas tank vent valve, right ?    Wrong !

 

 

 

Maybe this is why I don't see many of these IMS over size tanks , to close to the head.

Went riding today, first day in weeks that the sun was out and the temp was decent.  A buddy has 500 acres of woods, fields, and single lane farm roads with many stream crossings.  We have a regular course set up, sort of a  hare scrambles course of about 10 miles as measured by GPS.  It was major league muddy today.  Only fell once, right off the bat.  The WR ran great though, a little rich, need to drop the needle a notch.

Added Vibranators to my 2013.  Amazing reduction in handlebar vibes.  I used to get arm pump and tingling sensation in my hands on every ride.  Rode yesterday with the Vibranators.  NO tingle in the hands.  NO arm pump.  I highly the Vibranators.  I got the one that is screws into your handlebar ends so you can use barkbusters.

Still2smokin, that looks awesome - can't beat grilling burgers and riding dirtbikes. Been riding here a lot lately here, too - weather in eastern NM has been awesome this winter. Lots and lots of clear 60 deg weekend days to ride. Going to hit one of the bigger dune areas out here tomorrow.

still2smokin-Yeah, so far it's workin', normally  I use silver duct tape, but I forgot to bring it with me.  I know I'm anal.  You should see my street bikes.

 

RockerWR450-You are so lucky with the weather, it has been miserable here in SE Missouri, tomorrow our high is supposed to be 16F with more snow.  BTW how's that Tusk front brake working out, any improvement?

      Just bought a new 2017 yz250fx, has about 2 hours on it and ive already done an oil change, and overall made sure everything is in good condition.
      I rode for about an hour last Saturday around a farm and than stopped to turn off the bike, about 20 minutes later I came back and started it up and now every time I rev it/ blip the throttle the bike just shuts off.
      Than about 6 days later tried again, Now it wont even run without choke, I warm the bike up on choke and as soon as I shut it off bike turns off
      Not only do I want to fix this so i can ride my NEW bike, I am very pissed because its brand new and ive done nothing wrong to it.
      Any help is much appreciated

      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.
