4,502 posts in this topic

No sparky and it`s around 98db but you can get a quiet insert will rob you of some power down low tough.Had a dragg test with one off my buddies, a 07 yz450 stock pipe but jetting was done and is fitted with the wr tranny.My bike pulls him from 2 to top end on a sandy 800 meter strip.Believe me its the fmf pipe that does all the work!!

oh ok thanks, i need a pipe thats 96db and has a sparky.

What was the average speed.

The most I've ever ridden in a day was 102 miles in the woods (mixed trails) and that was an all day thing.

I'd imagine 150 miles in the dez with an average speed of 60 mph would be a cakewalk

Thats pretty fast bro :thumbsup:

I added fork air bleeders, Acerbis brush gaurds, magnetic oil drain plug, Zip-ty fuel screw, Removed AIS, disassembled and greased rear suspension linkage, JD jet kit, and White Bros E2 slip-on exhaust. Took about 3 days working on and off...I have a wife too. lol

i forgot to mention that the wind kicked up in the last one a literally blew my bike into an unwanted whip... the jump was pretty straight and had never kicked the back of my bike out like that before

Red, I must say you have a lot of time and a strong elbow! Looks great. Ciao JP :thumbsup:

yeah, it took a while, thanks. i had to sand it with 80 grit first to get the clear off but then went all the way to 1000 grit. used a buffing wheel atached to a angle grinder with some rouge. deffinatly an all day thing but my friend charges $250 to do other peoples frames and swingarms for them so i saved some$$$ and did it myself.

Hmmm... rode about 2 kms in the shallow creek knee-deep and crossed some wheel-deep fords on the weekend so changing oil today. And lubing swingarm and stuff... Guess need to take apart the fork and change oil/seals too as had 4 (!) front wheel punches within a 112 km ride... Some ordinary size boulders in the creek really hit back into the bars... And a race next weekend too...

Always envy you guys how you keep yer bikes shiny and stickery... Mine CRF was too while I was riding in arabian deserts. Now in local bush and wet and dirt none of the stickers can last 3-4 decent rides...

a pepsi can would of matched the bike better:p

When the fuel starts sloshing on the jewls the issue of color somehow fades to the back of the mind. With that said, your right and I'll try to remember that if the occasion comes up again. :thumbsup:

      Nice used vintage Don Vesco desert fuel tank for the Yamaha TT/XT500's. Removed from a '79 so may not fit the earlier models. In great shape, not sun-baked, Vesco petcock, Preston Petty cap and all mounting hardware included. Price is OBO plus shipping.

      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.
