You're gonna love that brake set up. Awesome value and makes a huge difference in stopping the WR beast.

18 degrees, but I power washed the dirty beast. Put her back in the garage with a heater and a blanket to melt the ice. Lol. Time to stud the tires and get ready for some ice riding!

It took some fooling around but it's pretty near perfect.

FMF exhaust, port matched heads, hot cams, all the free stuff and smoked my buddies.

PRICELESS!

hello 8 years later, I tried hot cams on my 05 wr250 and it was determined that the springs kept the electric starter from firing the engine. Did you have that problem?

Picked up this one ridiculously cheap. Has an issue running in low revs and sometimes electric starter slips a little. The speedo is in KMs :p

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.

 

How did the Supercooler work out?  I'm looking for solutions to my Wr 450 overheating that don't involve jerry-rigging a computer fan to the radiator.

I've had one slight boil over since I installed it.  Not sure anything other than a fan would have helped though I was stuck on a steep grade on some large rocks.  I was basically just spinning my rear tire and not going anywhere.

 

I think it probably helps, but it's not going to eliminate the issue in certain situations.

Used plasti dip on my front fairing and rear fender. And added my license plate mount. Total investment under $15 next will be my sicass racing rear break light switch that plugs right into the factory harness ImageUploadedByThumper Talk1421396504.214086.jpgImageUploadedByThumper Talk1421396526.974474.jpg

      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?

      Hello,
      For this summer, I was looking for a project. As a desert/trial, and occasionally single track rider from Southern California, any time of the year works for a build like this.
      I grew up riding two-stroke and after a couple years on four strokes, I want to return to the enduro king. However, KTM and Husky sell their bikes for quite a high price tag.
      So, I have decided I want to take an older two stroke motocross bike i.e. cr250, yz250, etc., and make it the ultimate desert bike for significantly less than a new KTM.
      I am not loyal to one brand, but I have always loved Honda and spent a grand a month ago on all new gear with Honda's name plastered all over it. 
      I know all the mods I want to do the bikes to make them enduro/desert ready: heavy flywheel, 18 inch rear wheel, new exhaust, steering stabilizer, etc.
      What I need help in is I don't know what bikes I can install a wide ratio transmission in. I know yz250 can take a 400 or 426 transmission, but can any other brand?
      I would like to see a cr250 with the gears of a 450x rippin through the desert. I like the steel frame for off road use, and I just need some advice on the best bike for this conversion.
      Thanks

      For sale is my 2007 YZ250F. This bike is very well setup for trails or harescrambles. I am not the original owner, but have service records. This bike has been well maintained and runs great. Starts first or second kick. Engine and transmission rebuilt about 10hrs ago and I just did a valve clearance check and shim. There are over $3000 worth of parts on this bike. I also have a couple boxes of OEM and aftermarket spares that I will sell for extra. Only issues are a leaky left fork seal (I have the OEM fork seal replacement kit and will include with purchase) and the radiators are slightly twisted, but 100% functional. I have two brand new replacement radiators with a radiator guard/brace that I can throw in if sold at asking price. I am asking $3200 OBO. Please contact me via email in Craigslist ad or PM me here. Located in Fishersville, VA.
