I took mine out and crashed it 5 miles into a 30+ mile poker run. What a pain to ride with the forks twisted in the clamps.

Installed new Flatland Radiator Guards. Went pretty smooth minus a little struggle on shaving the shrouds. Took a little trail and error to get it to fit well. Probably work better if I had a nice dremmel instead of a box knife.

Also, i installed new rear turn signals, and added some extra protection (little plates if i ever bottom out.

The problem is my turn signals usually break at the post from all the vibrations off-road. On the street, these things last forever. This time, i added quick disconnect terminals, so i can remove them on long dirt rides or the track.

Ok, the final thing i did was purchase a spare wheel and mounted a paddle tire for the dunes (Pismo/Dumont/Glamis). This was a final fitment test, and it's true, a 2003 YZ450 wheel will fit a 2004 WR450 no problem. I wonder how the gearing will be with a YZ 48 tooth sprocket instead of my 50 tooth on the WR.

I changed the oil and filter, relubed the chain and cleaned the air filter. Checked the air pressure in the tires, resealed the forks and got ready for a trip to Colorado to ride in the mountains.

I re-aligned the fork and pulled the clutch to see how bad it was. I think I will be able to get a couple more rides out of it but it looks like I'm going to be looking into getting a new clutch soon.

You can call me crazy, but I removed all my lighting, kick stand, DOT legal knobbies, turn signals, and license plate because I'm planning on riding some MX for a while, I can have it all back on and street legal again in a couple hours. Oh, I also put on a Two Brothers slip on but quickly found out the YZ 450F slip on doesn't work with the WR header pipe, bummer, so I've got an FMF Powercore on it's way instead. Darn misinformation websites.:thumbsup:

^^^damn thats a nice tire.

Hopefully I can milk mine until the rainy season. I'd hate to put fresh rubber on the back with the crappy conditions we have right now it'll just chew it up.

Today I just looked at it. Got a day off tomorrow so I'm probably gonna give it the full spa treatment. Bath, detail, chain lube, air filter, oil change

      Used PRO TAPER platform 2.3 pegs with standard height inserts. These are removed from a 2011 YZ 125 but should fit all current era YZ and YZF's. Double check before purchasing. I just sharpened the teeth up a bit with a file. These retail for $190 and most online retailers have for $170. You can buy replacement inserts that are higher or lower if desired. 
      Taken from Pro Taper's site:
      The 2.3 Platform Pegs feature a unique replaceable cleat design for unrivaled customizability. All necessary mounting hardware is included, as well as the standard magnesium-colored cleats. Replacement cleats incorporate ProTaper’s exclusive Traction Arc Design and are available in various heights, colors, and materials to directly suit each rider’s needs.

      Hello everyone, been looking around on here for a couple weeks and figured I'd finally drop my question for some feedback. Looking for a bike, obviously or I'd be on a different forum, somewhere in the 250/300 range. Heres some info about me and the typical riding I'll be doing..
      My specs: Male, 190 lbs, 5'10, 28 years old. 
      Riding Experience: Two wheel mostly street, R6, R1, Harley etc. I've ridden most of em. Off road has been mostly quad, except one trip down the trails on a Yamaha 450 2t (holy moses that was quick). Ridden quads for a few years, Polaris 850, Yamaha/Honda 250's (banshee style) at Silver Lake and on trails. Trails we ride are in Grayling which are a mix of hard pack and loose sand (tank trails). 
      Planned Riding: the above mentioned sand dunes and trails. Doubt I'll ever touch an actual Mx track. Will use a paddle tire when in the dunes. In my mind I've narrowed it down to the KTM 250/300 XCW or Yamaha YZ250X. Not really a Honda fan. 
      Not trying to open another KTM vs Yamaha thread, Ive read plenty of those. Just looking for some feedback and ensure these are the bikes I should be interested in and if 2 stroke should be my route? I like the easy maintenance but also like the idea of fuel injected 4t. I don't want to be beating the heck out of a 4t in the dunes and turn it into a bigger $ pit than these toys are already. I would prefer having a headlight, 250X does not come with one while both KTM's do (unless I go Yamaha 4t with the WR250f). Thanks for your feedback..

      I am looking for a YZ125 and have found a 99 for 1300 and an 03 for 1600 both in pretty nice condition. Obviously going to negotiate the prices down however I was wondering which one you guys would suggest. Ive been doing research and know that the 03 is lighter with a modified frame though it has a 5 speed. The 99 motor is well liked for the power and reliability.
      I will be doing strictly trail riding so whats the better option here?

      So I was cutting my neighbors lawn when i came across this bike in my neighbors barn. They said i could have it for free and i thought it would be a great thing to try and fix up. But after looking at it and doing some research i cant find what it actually is. I believe  it is a 1985 YZ 125, but i am not sure. Anyone know what it is and where i might be able to find some parts for it? Or if it would be better just top sell it for parts. Thanks!

      PRICE DROP
      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!

      -Mylers oversized radiators and bulletproof radiator guards
      -Folding ARC clutch and brake levers (I have the stock levers as well)
