A friend sold his WR, and the buyer didn't want any of the extras/"fancy go-fast parts" so I got the leftovers. Braking-brand wave rotors and black Excel wheels with just a tiny chip in the back rim.

So this is pretty crazy. Way back around August 2006 I was on a dirt bike road trip in Oregon and picked up a Rooster Performance Rear Brake Guard. Rooster is now defunct and well, soon after my trip I lost the brake guard somewhere in my garage. Well, this weekend while cleaning up, I found it wedged behind some tile. I immediately installed, as I had vowed never to put another rear guard on till I found the rooster! My stocker was barely holding on..

Stoked!

- All free mods except disconnecting the gray wire - the dealer said disconnecting the gray wire is a hoax and not recommended so they wouldn't do it.

~Adam

I had my Yami dealer do the AIS mod on my new 450 I got from them and they did the Grey Wire mod at the same time, on their own. I didn't think they would do it so when I checked, sure enough, it was cut and taped......

This is the same dealer that wouldn't touch the little Suzuki 50 quad I bought from them to make it run/pull better!:)

Bike is going back to the tuner this week for more jetting on the dyno.

      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?

      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
