What did you do to your WR today?

4,502 posts in this topic

NO!

Consider a 250 but don't think about a 450. If you fit a 125 height wise then you fit most all bikes but that does not mean it is good for you.

What size bike do you currently ride?

YZ450F Exhaust, it's loud but I would never go back  :) Noise is not an issue where I ride. 

Acerbic Fuel tank not installed yet

MotoZ Enduro I/T tire front and rear not installed 

Cargo rack not installed 

New X ring gold series chain and sprockets not installed 

 

Next in the off season I need to swap the starter parts to the 04 version for piece of mind.

Got in ride #15 for the year on the weekend.   27 miles of pure single track except 3 miles of logging road to take a short cut to get back to the truck in time to make my wife not mad.   No issues to report.  Bike runs well.  It's very fun to ride.

 

Some of my rides have been training rides where I've taken a newbie out and shown them the ropes.  But I still probably have 10 real rides in this year.  That's good considering I didn't get started until June.

Installed a Boysen Supercooler impeller and cover last night. Hopefully this will make enough difference in the slow stuff so that I don't need to get a fan.

I'd like to hear your opinion on it.

I will be riding some slow technical single track with lots of elevation changes tomorrow. It's supposed to be about 80F so it should be a decent test. I'll report back here with how it worked for me.

Today I removed all my plastic to start the changeover to my black and yellow scheme. Went ahead and removed my Mohard radiator guards, which are awesome and super strong and definitely saved me more than once, and went back to the stock set up since I'm not in the desert anymore. Also removed my coolant overflow bottle and installed a Tusk lithium battery - still had the stock Yuasa which was going strong. I then made a new stronger and lighter license plate/tail light mounting bracket and switched over to a (most likely non-DOT approved) all in one brake light and turn signal assembly. I will post pictures and how much weight I removed when I hopefully finish it up tomorrow.

I rode 54 single track miles yesterday in 75F temps. I have ridden these trails many times this summer, and I hit 210F-230F on about 6 trails typically (my bike boils at 230F and I have my trailtech Voyager warning lights set up to come on at 210 and 220). Yesterday, I never once got above 199F. The Voyager gives a temp readout chart for the whole ride so this is not just a guess. Basically, the Boysen supercooler lowered my temps by ~20F. I'm super happy with it after this one ride.

Awesome! Didn't expect to hear that drastic of an improvement. I think one of those and a Rekluse and I will be in business with this bike. Now if I can only figure out how to mount my throttle-side hand guard (non-bark buster type)...

      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! 

      -Forks revalved by LT-Racing for 210# rider w/gear
      -Mylers oversized radiators and bulletproof radiator guards
      -Folding ARC clutch and brake levers (I have the stock levers as well)
      -3.1 gallon tank. (I also have the stock tank)
      -Seat concepts dual sport seat (also includes the stock seat with guts foam and motoseat seat cover)
      -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
      -Force accessories case saver

      extra tubes and rimlocks
      Printed and bound owners manual and service manual

      It's a dirt bike so it has some cosmetic damage. Some chipped plastic and scratches on the swingarm.

      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.
