What did you do to your WR today?

4,495 posts in this topic

Replaced my chain slider with a TM designs unit.When I pulled the bolts on my OEM slider the threads from the swingarms came out with the bolts :worthy:

They had been stripped on original install. So tapped them out to an M6 from M5, made a little modification to the slider mounts and all was golden :cheers:

Also replaced my dying plastic hot start nut with a billet Tokyo Mods one :banghead:

I should be getting my WR back in about a week or so. Then I have to run it in... Any ideas on that?

builder reckons run it for 2 hours in 30 minute intervals with 15-20minute cooling sessions in-between and then change the oil and oil filter?

Im itching for the dunes ... daayummm

Smashed up my left radiator, ripped the whole fender off and destroyed the stock plastic radiator fins and bent the left turn signal. Pictures tomorrow :cheers:

Had it towed in the rain on adobe (slippery like oiled snot) by a crazy Quad rider uphill at about 25MPH shooting mud all over me. I thought I was going to die. I managed to keep it up though. :banghead:

Also rebuilt the petcock at the OHV park before riding today.

Picked up my bike from Dave @ Smart Performance Inc. this morning.

Dave reworked the the FRT W/ Stage 4 / Springs frt & Rear / Magic Fluid and re-greased the linkage/swing arm. After 3hrs @ Hollister (left due to rain), I can honestly say WOW! Night and Day difference. Re World report to come after I get it in some familiar terrain.

I did my damage on Dinosaur Loop in the Renz.

Looks Good, Nice addition. Bikes way too clean. I'm sure that will be fixed when the rain stops.

Replaced a torn valve cover gasket and changed the oil. Checked the valves...they are still in spec and haven't moved on the 07' from the factory....gotta love the Yamaha valve-train!

Not today, but very recently I had the suspension revalved by ESP, change oil and air filter. I have an '05 450 (bought it new) and except for getting stiffer springs, this is my first suspension revalve. Shouldn't have waited so long. What a difference!

Installed Smart Performance Phase 4 kit in forks :cheers:

First time revalving forks, not really that bad, and now that I've done it, almost easy.

DaveJ is great, always just a phone call away with any questions :moon:

Only problem is I can't test ride for another couple months with all the snow here :smirk:

      Hey all, recently getting into motocross again and bought a used bike from a kid who lacked on the maintenance side of things for the bike. What I have found / believe is happening is oil is leaking out of the cylinder head breather tube. Before going on my first ride with the bike I had a respectable amount of oil right in the middle of the checkered oil marks on the dip sticks. However after about 5 hours riding I checked the oil to find that it was barely even on the dip stick. I know there has been oil leaking out of the breather but could have been caused because an overflow on the oil change from the kid. I mean the bike is 8 years old maybe it is time for some top end work. On that note would a person change out the piston regardless of condition along with the rings? Is it possible the rings are just not positioned right? I would definitely do the valves while I have the bike open anyways.
       
      Any info would be greatly appreciated I just find it odd that it took 5 hours to drain, reading through other posts some guys were having puddles of oil after 20 minuets of running time.

      I live in northwest Virginia (Charlottesville area)  about an hour south of DC, I am not aware of any tracks in the area that are either public (or private but allow people to ride with permission).  Does anyone know of any good tracks in my area?

      Hello,
      For this summer, I was looking for a project. As a desert/trial, and occasionally single track rider from Southern California, any time of the year works for a build like this.
      I grew up riding two-stroke and after a couple years on four strokes, I want to return to the enduro king. However, KTM and Husky sell their bikes for quite a high price tag.
      So, I have decided I want to take an older two stroke motocross bike i.e. cr250, yz250, etc., and make it the ultimate desert bike for significantly less than a new KTM.
      I am not loyal to one brand, but I have always loved Honda and spent a grand a month ago on all new gear with Honda's name plastered all over it. 
      I know all the mods I want to do the bikes to make them enduro/desert ready: heavy flywheel, 18 inch rear wheel, new exhaust, steering stabilizer, etc.
      What I need help in is I don't know what bikes I can install a wide ratio transmission in. I know yz250 can take a 400 or 426 transmission, but can any other brand?
      I would like to see a cr250 with the gears of a 450x rippin through the desert. I like the steel frame for off road use, and I just need some advice on the best bike for this conversion.
      Thanks
