Well I'm going to pipe in here, I've had my 07wr450 for about a month now when i picked it up the previous owner rejetted it, clipped the grey wire, removed the baffle on the stock exhaust and put on some MSR bush guards. Since then I took out the snorkel opening the airbox and removed the A.I.S. Pretty minor changes in performance however i did notice a difference.

Now not to be out done by my honda friends which is pretty much everone i ride with i ordered a Two Brothers full exhaust. Which i just installed today and WOW what a difference!! Not even close to the same bike, The power down low is quite noticeable but i'd say the biggest improvement is the mid range. Plus the sound is awesome nice and crisp. It no longer sounds like a generator which all my buddies would tell me on a daily basis.

So I guess I'm saying putting an aftermarket exhaust on your WR is in my mind one of the best upgrades out there. I'll post a pic later gotta go for another rip before dark!! LOVE IT!

I rejetted and installed a flex air mixture screw too. Finished at midnight. I got a late start. :thumbsup: So I hope it runs in the morning. :)

Rode with the new tires, Milleville F&R, and with my son on his way too little for him TT-R50. We had a blast running through the trails. Love the tires and love to watch my son crash while learning to ride....and jump. He smiles so big when he gets some air.

After getting home and washing the bikes I had to rejet the WR for the summer. I just moved the needle clip. Took the 50 carb off and cleaned it and replaced the plug. Both bikes run like new and we love them.

Time for new chain and sprockets for the WR and probably some new graphics. He needs a KLX 140 :-)

Installed the Tusk Enduro Lighting kit using tools from my ride pack (Motion Pro "MP" tool, a pair of pliers) and cordless drill. Hoping to get it registered in a couple of weeks.

Still considering whether to do the phase 4 kit myself or send my suspension to Dave J.

2in2out,

I had Dave do mine, but I have recently watched some very detailed fork / shock rebuild vid's on YouTube. If I could send the kids away for the weekend, I most likely would of gave it a whirl. Dave's work is magic & he is a really nice/knowledgeable guy, I actually dropped my bike at his home, cause I was lazy. Only complaint is turn around time.

But when your in high demand, that is to be expected.

Rebuild with heavier springs and probably dink with the carb while it's apart.

While waiting for the suspension to get done I did the o-ring mod and installed a stainless header from a YFZ450 quad.

      Hello all, I'm the proud new owner of a very clean 1986 Yamaha TT350S. I've been going through the bike making sure everything is working. I cleaned the two carbs and made sure there was enough oil. It rides great and I'm excited to get it on the road soon!
      I have been having some issues with the lighting. The headlight bulb was blown out so I found another one on eBay. The taillight doesn't work and I've spent a stupid amount of time trying to figure out how to get it to work (seems simple but I can't get it to work!!). I replaced the bulb with a new 1157 12v bulb that I got at Oreillys. The bulb fits the assembly but doesn't work. I measured a couple volts off the blue and yellow wires that lead to the light. The ground seems good. Not sure how to check the switch next to the rear brake but it looked good inside to me. I'm at my wits end here with this, what should be, simple fix. Any tips or help would be much appreciated!

      I have a 1995 yz125 2t and the thing runs pretty good, well at least it seems to have no issues but it does not need the choke to start the bike. I changed the main, idle, and needle jets all to factory specs for my temperature and altitude. The bike will start first kick when 100% cold and will start first kick when warm but it just does not need the choke. So I'm wondering if I'm hindering my bikes performance in a way because it does not need the choke. Suggestions?

      Hey guys,
      So I recently just went through the bike and replaced the exhaust cam on my 2002 yz250f with an autodecompression cam out of a 2004 model.  I then shimmed the valves, cleaned the carb, and replaced the spark plug.  Now it won't start regardless of whether or not I try to kick it or bump it.  It seems like as I keep kicking it it goes through periods of extremely high compression where it is very hard to kick and then periods of low compression where it is a little easier to kick.  Either way I can't get the bike to start.  Any ideas?

      Used PRO TAPER platform 2.3 pegs with standard height inserts. These are removed from a 2011 YZ 125 but should fit all current era YZ and YZF's. Double check before purchasing. I just sharpened the teeth up a bit with a file. These retail for $190 and most online retailers have for $170. You can buy replacement inserts that are higher or lower if desired. 
      Taken from Pro Taper's site:
      The 2.3 Platform Pegs feature a unique replaceable cleat design for unrivaled customizability. All necessary mounting hardware is included, as well as the standard magnesium-colored cleats. Replacement cleats incorporate ProTaper’s exclusive Traction Arc Design and are available in various heights, colors, and materials to directly suit each rider’s needs.

      Hello everyone, been looking around on here for a couple weeks and figured I'd finally drop my question for some feedback. Looking for a bike, obviously or I'd be on a different forum, somewhere in the 250/300 range. Heres some info about me and the typical riding I'll be doing..
      My specs: Male, 190 lbs, 5'10, 28 years old. 
      Riding Experience: Two wheel mostly street, R6, R1, Harley etc. I've ridden most of em. Off road has been mostly quad, except one trip down the trails on a Yamaha 450 2t (holy moses that was quick). Ridden quads for a few years, Polaris 850, Yamaha/Honda 250's (banshee style) at Silver Lake and on trails. Trails we ride are in Grayling which are a mix of hard pack and loose sand (tank trails). 
      Planned Riding: the above mentioned sand dunes and trails. Doubt I'll ever touch an actual Mx track. Will use a paddle tire when in the dunes. In my mind I've narrowed it down to the KTM 250/300 XCW or Yamaha YZ250X. Not really a Honda fan. 
      Not trying to open another KTM vs Yamaha thread, Ive read plenty of those. Just looking for some feedback and ensure these are the bikes I should be interested in and if 2 stroke should be my route? I like the easy maintenance but also like the idea of fuel injected 4t. I don't want to be beating the heck out of a 4t in the dunes and turn it into a bigger $ pit than these toys are already. I would prefer having a headlight, 250X does not come with one while both KTM's do (unless I go Yamaha 4t with the WR250f). Thanks for your feedback..
