I drove down to gretna and picked up my nice and shiny bike trailer. I bought a fire extinguisher & some tie downs. I started my WR up and organised some dirt bike lessons. A few more weeks and i will finally ride my WR . Happy times:ride:

Installed an 07 Electronic Speedo/Odometer/Tri Meter on my 05. Just needed to make a nice aluminum bracket to bolt to the stock tripple clamp and WALA! Works just fine. Picked up the Meter, Sending Unit, and Fork Guards from E-bay, $150 delivered. Had 0 miles on it. :confused:

Installed last years model of a DMC Afterburner Comp slip on exhaust and the YZ exhaust cam into my '05. Fired up as soon as I hit the button and sounded great and immediately noticed that it revved up a little faster. Then took out onto the street and pulled back into the garage with a big smile on my face. Wow, what a difference! I will be going up to Gorman on Sunday so I'll give a full report. Installed Zeta Billet unbreakable levers, look and feel very smooth. Also just got some tank/shroud graphics from Dirt Digits. Will take a picture soon with all the goodies.

Hey red, good luck in the 6 hour. I did it last year on my wr and had a great time, the bike never missed a beat. If I'm healthy, I hope to ironman it next year. Let me know how it went.

well the oil in my 99 looked like chocolate syrup and there were enough metal flakes in the filter that i don't know how the oil cirulated through...lol. i need to sell it to someone quick!

I striped out all the inserts in my float bowl trying to re jet it.:prof: It seems that I have spent more time working on the bike then riding it. Looks like I will be riding the 2 smoke today..:bonk:

It was that time, so I thought I'd try something a little different to stand out from the herd. I have a black and blue Acerbis Spider front disc guard on order to replace the white/blue guard currently on the bike to complete the project. I've tried to keep it as clean and uncluttered as possible. So, what do you guys/gals think?

Today was my first ride after installing a YZ exhaust cam in my '05 WR 450. OH MY!! What a difference! I thought I was riding my son's '06 YZF. Big increase through out the entire powerband. Now at the same time I installed last years model of the DMC Afterburner Comp4 slip on, so I don't know how much the pipe added to it, but I am one happy camper. The install was very educational and I'm glad I had help from someone who knew more about motors than me. The mark on the YZ cam did not install in the same location as the WR cam was at. I will post a picture of the DMC pipe soon. Thanks to all who recommended the cam, I do to now!

      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?
