I had to change the spring rate, so why not get a jazzy one? :snore:

Installed a Factory Connection "Works" metallic shock spring and "Works" preload adjuster. :doh:

The pictures came out crappy. Here are FC's stock images until I can redo them:

Swapped the stock .460 springs to FC .480's. Did them on the bike - which is kinda of a PITA since you have to compress the forks a bit in order to get the cap up far enough to unscrew the jam nut...

Oh, and don't let go of the piston when pulling the spring up because it will drop into the fork tube and will need some fishing out done... :snore:

Installed some white Cycra Stealth DX hand guards. These are the "good" ones with aluminum brackets so they don't dance around and vibrate like strings when you're riding like the composite (yuck!) brackets do. Plus, the brackets are a little thinner so the front brake lever is a lot closer to where it should be located. :doh:

And lastly, set the sag. Used the SagMaster that I picked up from RaceTech. Thanks Michelle! :lol:

Got my new (to me) wr450 back from the shop, finally. Vacuum port leaking from teh AIS removal was apparently causing the over rich pilot ckt condition. Never would have found that so glad I turned Italian (surrendered) on it. Sorry to all those of Italian descent. Truly.

I prepaired mine for surgery, first thing was a good clean up.

526808138_Epiwg-L.jpg

Well....... it wasn't surgery in the end, probs getting the parts in time.

More like a check up.

I fitted the YZ cams and the rear shock, both worked out well. The cams do make a slight improvement in power, combined with the JD jetting kit. The YZ rear shock is better for hard trail riding than the standard WR.

Its now ready for a 700 k extreme trail ride in a couple of weeks and a 500 k desert race in August.

Replaced the stock springs for race tech 5.8 rear and 48 front rebuilt the forks while i was at it, new seal, bushings etc. Took it out for 20 mile trail ride and tried to figure out why I didn't change out the springs along time ago.:crazy:

Well worth the time and money, what a difference.

      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)

      -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

      extra tubes and rimlocks

      I have a 1987 yamaha tt 225 that needs a new carburetor.  I've looked EVERYWHERE online and can't find an original.  Does anyone know a good replacement one I can put on it? 
    • By Code54

      Very hard to tell this one from new.  (Other than a little bit of dirt and a few minor scratches)
      VERY low hrs and easy riding  - of course it runs great
      Has both Electric Start and kick start backup (also has Pig tails for battery tender installed)
      BBR Alum. Frame cradle with skid plate (Over $150 and protects the bike – Top of the line)
      Fisher Fab House Chain guide (Factory one is known to be an issue so I replaced it with a top of the line guide – runs about $50)
      Have title in hand
      Selling for ONLY $2000 WITH the extras!!!! (yes, the price is firm and we only accept cash - no shippers or scammers...)
       
      Only reason I am selling is I want to look into buying a trials bike and don’t really need two dirtbikes.

      Amazing bike but due to family obligations it sits in my garage most of the time. The bike has maybe 5 hours on it and runs like new. It comes with a GYTR FMF silencer with spark arrestor. There are some scratches on the plastic and and pipe from trail riding but that's what it is made for and its only cosmetic. The bike has been maintained and garage kept. If you have any questions please text me at (415)three 4 two- 4 five 8 six.

      So I just did a rebuild on my 98 Yz80, and it wont start. At first, we put the gaskets on wrong, so coolant was leaking everywhere. After we fixed that, and put everything back into place again, piston went up and down smoothly, and it has great compression. The problem is, it does not want to start. Im not really sure what to do, because before, my compression was very low, so I did a rebuild, but now it still does not start. So I need help.
