What did you do to your WR today?

4,502 posts in this topic

Installed '07 YZ 450f header and WB E2 after work today. Sounds wicked :cry: Not too loud but not all that quiet either. Probably on par with the stock '07 YZ exhaust or a little quieter . The tone is is nice and throaty. And the throttle response is SUPER sharp now. Noticed a slight hesitation up top but one size fatter on the main will fix that. The fit of the E2 to the YZ header is super tight. Alot of effort, yelling, swearing, and throwing shit was needed to put it on.

Tomorrow's list includes rejetting :thumbsup: and fixing a flat :p

Careful now :thumbsup: . Don't forget who has the banning authority :cry::p :p

I'll put up the pics when I post the ride report (in this thread). That exhaust looks so nice on there I'm seriously thinking about getting the white plastics now. My stimulus check is in grave danger :worthy:

Went for a ride with a buddy who just got his 06 wr, we took some pics and videos, and I climbed a wicked big hill, very rough, tried it three years in a row and finally got up to the top today (had the camera brought home then though :thumbsup:

I installed my flatlands racing rad guards today. I am happy with them except for the fact that they don't cover the rads completely and leave a couple of rows of fins exposed on the inside edges.

Installed JD jet kit and a Zip Ty fuel screw. After first ride, :thumbsup: . Cured all the surging, backfiring crap. Thanks to all who steered me toward this kit :thumbsup: .

Put on front and rear M6006 tires. New chain and sprockets. And then road it down the street to our little local track and attempted to look like I knew what i was doing. Didn't do very good at that.

Lost the decompression plug on my new (to me) 450. Ordered a new billet one from ebay.com but i live in the uk so i'll probobally be off the bike for a few weeks untill the part is shipped over. It sucks! I figured that while the bike is off the road i'd take the time to do the throttle stop and grey wire mods...but now im dying to run the bike to see what difference they have made and can't until the new plug arrives. That sucks even more!!!! :thumbsup:

      Nice used vintage Don Vesco desert fuel tank for the Yamaha TT/XT500's. Removed from a '79 so may not fit the earlier models. In great shape, not sun-baked, Vesco petcock, Preston Petty cap and all mounting hardware included. Price is OBO plus shipping.

      Selling my immaculate 2016.5 KTM 250SXF Factory Edition with only 9.6hrs on it since new. Has been vet ridden and cared for. I have a clean title in hand for the bike. Bike has the following...
       -SMPro Platinum wheelset and new Dunlop MS3 tires with only a few rides on them ($1000 wheelset)
       -D.I.D ERT2 chain only a few rides
       -Orange Renthal sprocket, and 13T countershaft sprocket only a few rides
       -Mapped by Tokyo Mods for U4.4 (still have standard map also for pump gas)
       -WP AER 48mm air forks
       - FMF 4.1 titanium slip on muffler
       Bike will come with stock header pipe but still have the FMF factory Titanium slip on. Will also take off the titanium bolts and Renthal bars and put back on the stock ones. Will aslo come with triangle stand, manual, clean title, extra twin air filter, 14T countershaft sprocket, WP air pump for the forks, half a can of U4.4 fuel, and KTM tool kit. NO TRADES. NO FINANCING. NO LOWBALLERS. Bike is in showroom condition and the Factory Editions are very hard to find used in this kind of shape or new. $6800 price is FIRM.

      I added skateboard grip tape to the frame by my pegs and on the subframe for extra grip.

      I just ordered a piston kit for my 1998 yz80, and it does not fit into my cylinder. I can't really remember if its a 47.5 mm or 47, i'm pretty sure it's a 47.5 but it just does not fit into my cylinder. My cylinder does have a big groove in it, so do I need a new cylinder for it to fit, or a new piston? Please respond ASAP!

      Hopefully I will not have to make any more posts after this but I have questions about the 04 wr snorkel. Before it's suggested yes I did read the free mod guide on super Moto junkie and he shows the snorkel being removed but does not explain or show how. I tried removing the two bolts on top and the battery but it still doesn't even budge after that, is it molded in place? Also what is deemed as a clean or dirty air filter? I don't know what is supposed to be normal, upon looking at mine there was a good amount of thick black grease that I wiped out so I have no idea how long this one has been used or last cleaned. I bought a no toil filter to replace the current one since I just did a rebuild and why not have a clean one in there. But if someone can enlighten me on details it would be much appreciated.
