What did you do to your WR today?

4,502 posts in this topic

spent hours lashing it to the trailer and took it for a spin. All was smooth and happy till i went over a speed bump. I looked in the rear view mirror and my eyes jumped out of my head big time, proper black eyes time lol. The bike was leaning over :p and I had to pull over to correct the lashing. GREAT day though. Just trailering the bike was immense fun. Also re-fitted the handguards and turned the engine over. Im going to book some lessons and probably an apointment to see my Dr for when i come off lol. It be sunny, it be beer time. peace.

I put my 99WR400 supermoto back together today. I painted the frame, re- greased the swing arm and gave it a good cleaning. Im having a problem with the front brake. I cant get the air out of the line. It just seems to keep bubbling. Also the rear wheel spins free when the axle is not tight but when I tighten the axle it gets hard to spin. Any ideas?

You prob need to replace that long spacer in the hub between the bearings. :p

I went riding with my son at a local riding spot. We hit some packed sand, soft sand, hard packed clay, dirt and a water crossing. My son had a blast and got some air on a couple of jumps. He laid it down alot in the soft sand but he learned to keep his balance a little better and to look through turns instead of looking at his front wheel. Another kid had a TTR-50 too, so they played follow the leader on a small loop someone set up.

The area we rode has a hare scramble race there every year so there are tons of trails. I got to hit some of them on the WR without my son in tow. I love the WR and it's still all stock. 2nd gear most everywhere...it's almost like having and automatic...lol.

I threw my son on the WR with me and climbed some steep hills he couldn't go up on his 50. He loved it.

I just need to get the suspension setup for my 215lbs and I'll be good.

Is that an 08 YZ exhaust? If yes, what do you do about a sparky?

Where did you get the graphics and what are they called? YZ shrouds?

      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 recently purchased a 08 CRF250R I currently am having many issues with this bike and need as much help as I can get to fix it, so basically whats going on is I can't even start the bike without pop starting it kick start doesn't work for some reason the bike doesn't even drive for that long before turning off and it back fires and makes a LOUD popping sound and I have no idea whats going on with the bike I was also driving today and the sprocket broke some how and the gears won't even in-gage meaning I will kick it in first gear or second or third and won't even move as its in neutral can someone who knows about these type of bikes knows how to help me out a little?
      Thanks.. Dave

      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!

      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! 

      -Forks revalved by LT-Racing for 210# rider w/gear
      -Mylers oversized radiators and bulletproof radiator guards
      -Folding ARC clutch and brake levers (I have the stock levers as well)
      -3.1 gallon tank. (I also have the stock tank)
      -Seat concepts dual sport seat (also includes the stock seat with guts foam and motoseat seat cover)
      -FMF powercore 4 with silent core/spark arrestor. I've got the stock spark arrestor as well. Racing compliant!
      -Boano racing billet brake pedal with brake tip
      -FJ Fasst co. brake clevis
      -Billet chain blocks
      -upgraded steel oil pump gears- the plastic stock ones are prone to failure
      -Force accessories case saver
      -TMD skid plate (not pictured but will be on the bike)

      Extras:
      Acerbis X-factor handguards
      a few spare plastics pieces
      key switch with plug and play wiring
      extra tubes and rimlocks
      Printed and bound owners manual and service manual
      10mm billet bar risers

      It's a dirt bike so it has some cosmetic damage. Some chipped plastic and scratches on the swingarm. 

      Can send more pictures/info upon request
