Did my research and ordered a Turntech battery my 08. An hour later I read a post that mentioned it doesnt fit in the 08. Will see what happens when it gets here.

It fits. It just doesn't lay flat against the box like a stock battery. Not a perfect fit but everything will connect and go back together.

At least those are the reports I got back. Please report back if different.

With 5 inches of snow on the ground .....and no riding for several months!

the Shock seal was blown out from last seasons ride fest.

so.....read threads, download PDFs adn get busy with it.

Linkage fully greased

Swing arm fully greased

Leaky fork seal fixed

added fork neoprene sliders

Head bearings fully greased

New Xring chain

New sprockets front and rear

New Fredette chain guide (destroyed the stock one rock hopping in Utah)

shoegoo'd the chain slider to the swingarm to keep that rubbing from occuring.

Shock is off the bike and i put a new Alls Balls seal in it, the full unit. Used Pro circuit suspension oil. cleaned it all up Ill post pics someday when i can edit them down.

Stuff left to do.

Check valves

Repack silencer its an FMF Q, teh old style

Need to find a better filtration for the carb vent hoses, dirt is definatly coming up those and into my carb and precious motor

i picked up a used 08 wr450f with only 270kms on the clock last week, so far the mods have been GPR V4 sub mount stabilzer, force rad guards, procircuit t4 exhuast, yz cam, yz carby, yz suspension, rekluse exp core clutch, replace the australian adr headlight with the us version, steg pegz and a 10.5l fuel tank for the longer rides. mods still to come are a lighter battery, procircuit header pipe, and thinking of removing the stock speedo and read out replacing it with a gps unit. and last but not least a visit to ringmaster graphics for some custom graphics to finish it off.

Battery is in. I had to extend one wire and re-route two others but it was worth it. It sits flat in the bottom and starts better than it ever has before.

Is the tank from a KTM Adventure 640 or custom?
Yep, they're the 30L versions from the KTM 640 (actually manufactured by Acerbis), fitted with some custom made supports (see me website!) :thumbsup:

Bought one!!! :thumbsup: Found a 2006 with only 40 very light miles on it. Almost showroom condition. Completely stock. Unfortunately, been sitting for the last two years with the same gas. Been lurking around here for the last few weeks so I'm pretty familiar with the mods I need to do. Since I'll be rejetting, the carb will get a good cleaning. So now I have a YZ125, YZ250, WR450F and an FZ1! I think I have the bases covered :ride:

      So apparently some mx fcr carbs have removable valve seats and some dont. I didnt know this and just thought mine was really stuck in there so i drilled it out. Was going to replace it anyway. But it turns out that i have the model that is not suppose to have the valve seat removed. or so i think. Is anyone aware of this difference between the same carb. Do you know where i can get another valve seat? its off a 2003 yz450f

      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?
