What did you do to your WR today?

4,502 posts in this topic

Installed Cycra stealth hand protectors (the roost only kind) and a ProCircuit Ti-4 GP pipe. :excuseme:

I've gotta say, the Cycra composite bracket sucks. It just isn't rigid enough and the shields vibrate to the point that they're visually annoying. I'm going back to Bert's and exchanging them for the aluminum bracket kind. (Fwiw, I refuse to ride with the closed bar brackets, but that's just me).

Mostly broke-in the WR. 2nd pair of Cycra handguards marked "aluminum" had composite brackets. Back to Bert's again. Grrr..... :excuseme:

Found out that Little Rock OHV area is closed "until February 2003, or until further notice."... w to the TF is our tax money going to anyway??? At least open something ELSE up. Jeez... !!!

Rowher Flats and Drinkwater Flats are both closed too. That leaves San Gabriel OHV (the crappiest one imo) the only one of the four open in Angeles NF. What a load of crap!!! :smirk:

Sito, if it's any consolation, I had a hanging idle today and my mid was popping. Time to tune my carb too. lol

Pulled her outta "winter storage", fired her up, and started to pour on the love. Think it's almost time to put away the snowmobile. I put her in storage all kinda bent up last fall. So, I apologized profusely, then threw on some new Rental 966 bend bars, Pro Taper Pillow grips, and a new right Moose handguard. She's purring and ready to rip. Might have to barge on Friday afternoon, looks like I'm gonna have the afternoon off. :excuseme:

I finally broke down and took the time to wire up my dual sport kit. The blinkers are 21 watts each so they are nice and bright. I ran a dedicated line for an HID (soon to come) and everything is wired through the main power switch (minus the HID)! I do have to say that if you DONT have the time...a Baja Designs or equivalent dual sport kit would be well worth the money. In my case, I had plenty of time...in total with the stator mod, reg/rec, blinkers, switch and plate holder I have under 175 bucks into my home brew'd dual sport kit will about 10 hours of labor spent wiring it up but I took my time, drank a few beers and made sure it was done right :excuseme:

The only thing its missing is a horn...Im using the horn button as my PTT

Front with the blinkers off

front with left blinker on

IMG00049.jpg

The blinkers and head light switch and PTT

IMG00050.jpg

The read button is my kill switch and the black button is my e start

IMG00051.jpg

Im missing the stock speedo (didnt work with my aftermarket hubs but the cool thing is I have plenty of room for HID stuff

And the rear!

Hey Big Coop Dawg, I like the way you DSed your WR. Is it a kit or is it pices you put together for a complete package? Oh yeah, I really like the start-kill switch, and the blinkers,and the switch for the blinkers, head light, and the plate holder too.:excuseme::smirk: Could you post up some of the details of the install? Thanks

Changed oil for 1st time, install vortex x10, adjust adjustable leak jet, PASS TEXAS INSPECTION!!! "...uh, technically I'm not supposed to pass this b/c there's no high beam indicator, signals indicator, and the horn sounds like...an electronic tone. But this bike is so cool..."

The guy inspecting it popped a power wheelie in 2d on his test drive--the guy is easy 280lbs. "My dirt bike can't do that!"

      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.

      I have for sale a nice Yamaha pw80. Normally this is 2 stroke kids bike, but it has been modified to be better suited for bigger riders. It is a blast to ride around the neighborhood and would make a great pit bike or starter bike for someone. 






      (video of it running)
      https://youtu.be/_TX4mhq4CrU
      Pros
      2 stroke
      Great shape
      Runs amazing (Watch the video link. Paste the link into your browser) https://youtu.be/_TX4mhq4CrU
      new air filter
      new oil/oil filter
      new sparkplug
      black dragon high performance ignition kit
      upgraded black dragon flywheel
      Boyesen Dual Stage Power Reed Set
      chain and sproket kit
      x tender suspension lift kit (raises it about 4 inches to make it comfortable for bigger riders)
      clutch-less semi manual (you do the shifting, but there is no clutch to mess with)
      cons
      due to the lift the factory kickstand is no longer effective. You need to place a block of wood under the kickstand else the bike will lean over too far
      one grip needs to be replaced (see picture)
      sticker peeling on one side (see picture)
      no title. This was gifted to me from my uncle. He got ill before I had a chance to get the title from him. The vin is listed below
      VIN JYA3RV0394A043189
      This is a great bike and I would love to keep it but it is time for it to go. I have too many toys at this point and I am highly motivated to sell it to buy a new motor for my car (don't tell my wife.haha). If you have any questions or would like any additional information do not hesitate to ask. I would be glad to help.
      Price is set at 999 OBO. That means or best offer. I will not tell you my bottom dollar through text or email. If you are serious prove it by showing up to my place with cash. Money talks, always.
