I kicked her to life after a month long rebuild!

 

 

Now I just need to put the plastics back on to make her look pretty again.

went to my local shop for the usual Maxxis Desert IT and if they didn't have that I was going to

give a trials tire a go.........

 

They didn't have either so the sales guy some how talked me it the IRC MB5 130-80-18....

Holy giant knobbies Batman , its a little on the huge/aggressive side but gonna give it a shot , plus

 

this thing is might come in handy to trench some new sprinkler lines in the yard .

 

A 140/80/18 will last a bit longer and is even a bit more bad ass and good hook up.

Tried out the new Rekluse and it was better than I expected.

My buddy says my rear tire is responsible for his headlight  .

how was the install of the Rekluse? I've never tried one and I love my clutch what's it like? Tell your buddy he needs to get the same tire to keep up!

The install was super easy. I bought the EXP 3.0 and it comes setup for a YZ in the box , to setup it up for a WR you change 3 of the 6

springs in the Rekluse ( supplied in the box) , takes less than 5 min.  Once that is done remove rear brake lever , clutch cover, pressure plate

and all the friction/drive plates and reinstall per the instructions . You will have removed 2 drive plates and 3 friction plates to take the place 

of the Rekluse unit . Reinstall the pressure plate swapping in three new pressure plate springs . Put the cover and brake lever back on and you

are ready adjust it .

 

Takes less than an hour to install and adjusting and break in takes less than a half hour.

 

It works perfect in fact if you keep using your clutch lever normally you don't even notice its there .

 

Clutch modulation is way better than I could ever do using the lever.

 

Still have full engine compression braking and some how you can still stab the rear brake when ever you want and the engine never stalls.

 

It really made me faster in the tight turns, seriously it did. In a tight hairpin turn where I would usually down shift to first

I was able to carry second gear through it and have good power on exit and already be in the right gear. Same with second to third

on the bigger turns.

 

Also hill climbing was much easier , could carry second gear on the steep climbs with out losing momentum where I would normally

downshift to first mid climb.

 

The only negatives I found were , if you didn't make it up the hill and you are trying to turn the bike around its a little harder cause the

back wheel turns freely where as normally the wheel would be locked up in gear keeping the bike from rolling .

The clutch lever is a little harder to pull.

 

Its friggin magic and worth every penny !

Over the weekend, traded my KX 250 for this 02 WR426.  Havent had a chance to take it out to the woods yet but love it so far.  As a side note, it wasn't muddy when i picked it up   ;)

Took it out to St. Joe ORV park, thrashed it in the mud on the single track trails, pretty slippery today. A lot of rain lately. Then brought it home and cleaned it up, and added a little bling.

The Husky is a lot easier to deal with in the muddy, snotty rocks than the WR!

Had the same problem with my damper rod mount after the first ride out. I took it off and cleaned the frame and mount really well and then used blue loctite on the bolts. It's held up on a few rough rides now. I think the over the bar mounting puts enough torque on the rod that the bracket works its way up and off the frame.

Had that issue with a couple of previous bikes. What I did is drill/tap 2 small set screws into the neck clamp and divit the frame where they are going to seat. Never had a problem after that.

Never had that issue on my bike but a buddy did. A quick spot weld took care of it.

      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.
