What did you do to your WR today?

4,495 posts in this topic

You American Dudes are lucky that you have all that desert to ride in, here in the UK there are no free open spaces for us to use, unless you pay!

That's why most of us turn our WR's into Supermotos so we can ride on the road............. anyone wanna swop Newcastle for California or Nevarda. :excuseme:

By the way my bike got an oil & filter change to day............ & last week I painted the garage for her to sit in!

Put a heavier rear spring on it and new seals w/seal savers on the front. And fixed the jetting mistake I made.

I just installed an FMF Speed slip-on. Listen to this, just as I was ready to install it I seen one of those package peanuts in the small end. Checked closely and got about 7-8 more out. Now Im worried so I fired up my leaf blower , hit the big end of the pipe and 7-8 more peanuts blew out. What if I had not seen them, I wonder how much damage that could have been ? Anyway,the pipe fits fine, looks great, sounds cool (not too loud), and hopefully gives a little more power,Ill find out this weekend. Bob

      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
