What did you do to your WR today?

4,502 posts in this topic

Added a Boyesen Supercooler water pump cover and impeller on the weekend.   Hard to say if it changed anything, because most of our riding was higher speed, but it certainly looks like it would move a lot more water just by virtue of the difference in the size of the blades on the impeller.

Just picked this up last weekend from my brother in law for free. It's an 05 with only 350 legitimate miles on it. It has been parked for the last 5 years after my brother in law broke his big toe. He decided quads were more his speed. After about two hours of cleaning the carb and basic PM I've got it running like new. It has been uncorked Yosh exhaust emissions BS gone. What do you guys think.

What did you think of the new KTM? A game changer?

Rode it for 3 days in the Sierra's up by Bass Lake and the Miami trail system. All I can say is WOW, what a difference. How I have been describing it has been it's like riding a Mtn bike with a motor. It is so nimble and easy to flick around. The power delivery is as they say, more linear, which I always twisted into "boring", but it makes it much easier to ride and doesn't tire you out. After 3 days of darting around in the trees, I was ready for more.

The ergo's are a bit different, you feel as you are sitting in the bike, not on it. I briefly swapped out for a bit with a friend on his plated, this was a dual sport ride weekend, 450X and as soon as I got on his bike it was like I was sitting on top of it which made me feel so top heavy.

A game changer, It's funny, you could talk to 99.9% of my riding buddies and they would tell you I was one of the biggest KTM bashers around. Not any more.

Yeah, but they they leak oil and burn coolant and stuff - every single one of them all of the time! Only fanboys buy KTMs! If you ride one, you become a communist instantly! Um, let's see...you can build a WR to perform better than than the KTM for less money!

That about cover it? Congrats on the purchase and thanks for the review.

BTW, "mountain bike with a motor" - that's the exact term I used to describe the YZ250 2 stroke I bought about a month ago. It's awesome!

Yeah, but I needed another plated bike as my wife has her street license so this dual sport serves a dual purpose :smirk:

      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)

      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.
