Picked up a used FMF slip on and a stock header in great shape yesterday and put them on. Runs great and seems to have a little more power. Most important, it sounds and looks great :excuseme:

Yeah, I know. I've been riding since Feb or March and learned on a CRF230F. This thing has more than enough power for me right now. The only reason I picked this up was it was so cheap. Good think about not being in a hurry is you can score some good deals :bonk:

If I see a great deal on a header, I will grab it. Wish I got into dirtbiking before I had kids and a budget :smirk:

Today, new tires!! I had on the worst tire (for my riding style, weight and terrain) ever....yet I kept it on for the longest time. A Sakura Dirt Shark. Knobs so tall it felt like a flat tire anytime I was on ground harder than shag carpet. Rolled knobbs galore!

I blame my brother. He loved that tire on his KX450F. I think he loved that it was $8 less than a good "normal" tire.

Rear tire so hard to get on that I coulda swore it was a 17 inch. That's okay: I'm paying his 14 year old son $15 to change both tires so he can earn $$$ for presents. I know his dad will have to help with another set of irons to get it off. That in itself will be my "revenge", haha.

i have the same tire on my bike. before that i had a michelin cross comp and i really can't feel the difference. i'm in canada and the michelin costs 140 bucks and the sakura 75. it was a pain to get on though, but for less than half the price, i'll fight with it for a while.

Installed Clarke 3.6 gallon fuel tank in the natural/clear. Also used on '06 petcock. I also opened the box my 52T Ironman sprocket came in. I hope to install that bad boy tomorrow.

^^^^I'd like to see the after photos.

I got a set of D756 for mine today, 3 motion pro tire iron spoons, a bead buddy and some sore hands.

I did my first tire chage, did the front. It was a bear, but I made a couple of mistakes and I think I have it figured out for next time.

Good for you. I have changed enough tires now that I know I no longer change tires unless I get a flat on day one of a camping trip. I have found that it cost a few $$ to take my wheels down to the local shop to have it done but there is also a LOT less profanity and thrown tools in my garage :banghead:

Well, I haven't decided if I'm going to do it myself or not, but let me tell you, trying to do that for the first time while on a trip would suck bigtime.

For this sport, in my opinion, you really need to know how to do stuff yourself. Once you are comfortable doing it (like you are) then decide if you want to pay to have it done or not.

I am in charge of 5 dirt bikes so the tire / changing costs can add up quick :cheers:.

At least after ONE change the tools I purchased to do it paid for themselves and I them them in my toolchest in case I need them :worthy:

ripped one of the valve cover "half-circles" in a tip over at Glamis over the weekend. I guess it's telling me that it's time to check the valves.

changed oil,and oil filter and realised you dont need to completly remove the header pipe on a wr400 to get the oil filter out.. just loosen the flange and the silencer connection and the pipe slides up enough to remove the filter,also needed a new brake disc so done that aswell,just waiting for my dep s7 silencer

      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)

      extra tubes and rimlocks
      Printed and bound owners manual and service manual

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

      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.
