What did you do to your WR today?

4,502 posts in this topic

I went with the tall foam.

Thanks,  that's the next thing I will be doing to mine once I finish up the street legal stuff.

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

 

 

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.

Thanks for the ideas , welding seems quicker and easier but I think I am gonna do the set screw idea.

I gotta do the headset/steering bearings again and its time to do something about the forks ( revalve or YZ ) so I will do it all at the same time.

 

 

Was able to put it back on for last weekends outing and it held all day for an epic Stonyford ride.

Picked up a set of these to help cool it down on the slow tight singletrack stuff for the summer temps .

Most likely just one will be used but since I found em for $38 each , I thought just incase 1 isn't enough, I grabbed 2

and I  think the RickeyStator unit I put in will run them both .....with the headlight .

Glad it worked, just remember to divit where the set screw goes on the neck. How much do those fans weigh?

They weigh just over 1 pound each and they move a lot of air , too bad I cant use them.....

My oversize tank is to close to the rads to fit them in, works with the stock tank but I aint going back

to the stock small tank.  Gonna have to buy the pusher fans instead of the pullers I bought :facepalm: .

Smokin, I had the big tank on my WR and I wouldn't boil even on the hottest days when all the ktms were steaming once I got my jetting and gearing right. By hot I mean 90deg, though.. Imagine Cali is over that?. I use my pressure washer into the radiator fins to blow out all the mud and crap too which makes a big diff.

Well today I did the last step to uncorking it which was the throttle stop. For two reasons I hadn't done this yet 1 pain in the arse to reach and didn't have the safety bit 2 it kept me from getting to crazy while I got used to the 450 as I'm coming off a klx250. It has the comp ecu snorkel removed and a bigger tip I fabbed up on the stock silencer. After 600 miles I'm in love with this bike and it gets better every time I ride it. And now holy shit does it rip up top. I need to crank the suspension back up alittle. It's broke in nicely. But it's very squeaky now so looks like I'm gonna tear it down and grease it soon.

Really glad I bought this bike. Even kinda getting used to the seat alittle ..... Ehhhh ImageUploadedByThumper Talk1400195652.393974.jpgNo it's got to go

It actually only boiled once in 95+ degrees in slow single track in the trees with no wind.....which is to say I heard it gurgling when I stopped.

 

But I have temp gauge and it messes with my melon ,  the bike stays around 160 - 180 on fire roads  but slow single track it doesn't take long for it to go up too 235-260 degrees

so I want the fan for more for consistency and longevity .

It was more last week, but in installed a Scott's stabilizer and some Mohard Racing radiator guards. The Mohards are extremely stout.

I also went through my forks again to re-bleed the inner chambers and try a different oil weight and level in the outers prior to racing last weekend. The Scott's stabilizer made a big difference!

Good eye! I know it's off-topic here, but if you search "Homebuilt Bigblock Mopar" on YouTube and you can see what went into it. I'm getting ready to put a different cam in it.

      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!

      -Mylers oversized radiators and bulletproof radiator guards
      -Folding ARC clutch and brake levers (I have the stock levers as well)

      -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

      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

      BBR Alum. Frame cradle with skid plate (Over $150 and protects the bike – Top of the line)

      Selling for ONLY $2000 WITH the extras!!!! (yes, the price is firm and we only accept cash - no shippers or scammers...)

      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.
