What did you do to your WR today?

4,495 posts in this topic

I use to have one it gives you a WR traction map and a YZ speedster map. Just for the price of the switch.

Definitely not ripping on the idea or any form of cheap ingenuity.  I personally didn't see enough of a difference to wire a switch, but to each his own!  I've read about it here and thought it was amusing that MountainRider got the set up and removed it.

Maybe it wasn't wired right I tried it on and off and couldn't notice a difference. I could see that maybe on a really rainy day in the hills needing it but for me it doesn't make since but to each their own.

Did you kill the bike each time you tried to switch maps?

+ 1 you gotta kill the ignition to switch maps on a stocker.

 

I am now running a Vortex ignition with on the fly adjustable maps. But I seem to only leave it on the 06' YZ450 map. Go figure.

Ya I did I figured that you would have to switch maps and a little update after having the bike in the air over night the new rear tire wasn't holding air they pinched the tube so I took it down to the shop and they threw in a heavy duty tube and fixed it free of charge. Quick question for street use what psi should I run my tires at?

If your really running street I would do 28-32 PSI

I got the fan off of ebay, here's the link to that fan http://www.ebay.com/itm/301271670645?_trksid=p2059210.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT if you get the fan and wire it up and it is a pusher not a puller that is because the wires need to be switched around (know from experience). The switch I used to turn it on and off is  http://www.ebay.com/itm/141140656787?_trksid=p2059210.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT. The radiator guards I believe say Devol on them, I will check to see if I am right when I get home. What do you mean by adapt from another one?

Yes they are DeVol

Brought it home. Picked up a "used" 2014 WR450F from some local yamaha rep that had no use for it. Came with a bunch of stuff already fitted on and it only had 24 miles on it. i guess it was used for a display bike at a local Dealer.

Well I took care of the abysmal fuel range of my 2012 WR today and installed the 16ltr Safari Tank. This thing is huge to say the least. Checking and changing the oil has just become a lot harder too. Should be able to get at least 260km out of a fill.

Received my Yamaha FI Diagnostic tool from the Netherlands today.  Hooked her up and set my CO level to 8.

 

Dumped a new FI map on her.  Now just need to get out and give her a whirl on a local mountain!

I just finished converting to street/SM use with 17" wheels. I have been slowly working on this for too long. Just about time to put the off road wheels back on.

Last night I did a neat mod to the left side drain plug hole where you tighten the plug bolt just enough to strip the case threads, and then drill it out and tap in some M10x1.25 threads and pretend like it never happened. Hey, at least both sides use the same size drain plug now. I really did it to streamline my parts supply on hand. Yeah, that's it.

Took some family photos.

I also discovered the Tubliss system (high pressure tube) on the front of my WR is leaking bad and doesn't hold air at all. I need to call tomorrow and find out if they have a warranty. It worked great last weekend up in the mountains on some nasty rocky and rooted trails.

Raced a local harescramble. Did decently and had a ton of fun. Good start, but quite a few guys got turned around behind me and cut nearly 3miles off the first loop so picking my way past people the first two laps really slowed my progress. Overall successful day. No broken bike or bones.

I might order up a Hot Cams exhaust cam ......  maybe/most likely ....  only thing I don't like is I just got the

jetting nailed down perfect and might have to mess with it again after the cam install . 

 

Can't wait for it to start raining here in Norcal .

      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?
