My new 08 WR450

25 posts in this topic

Just wanted to show off my brand new 08 WR450 I got 2 days ago! My boyfriend got it for me as a gift, and I am so excited to ride it.. I'll be able to ride it this weekend at ocotillo wells, and it is going into the shop next week to get uncorked. I don't mind riding it the way it is for one weekend, since I haven't ridden in a while because I took some time off while I was pregnant. Any comments/suggestions on this year bike?

Why not uncork the bike yourself? It's fairly easy, it's a great way to learn, and it gives you a good baseline of knowledge for general maintenance and tuning...SC

Congrats! They sure look nice brand new, but it IS a dirt bike, so get out there and get it dirty!!!!

Thanks! I'm kind of afraid of uncorking it myself since I don't want to screw anything up :thumbsup: I'm just starting to learn how to do my own maintenance, so I'm taking it easy. We're going to Ocotillo Wells this weekend, can't wait to ride :busted:

Oh and I came off a Honda CRF450R which was sold when I was 5 months pregnant :busted:

Hang on girl, your gonna love it! especially after you uncork it. Goes from about 40hp to about 47 hp or so....you'll love how easy it is to ride and how good it makes you look when riding it!

Got to ride my new bike and I LOVE it! Can't wait to uncork it, but right now it was actually ok since I hadn't ridden like that since last November, so it's been a while.. I am SUPER sore, it feels awesome to be riding again.. The only thing is that I bent both of my levers already, once from falling and the other from my bike being blown over by the wind. Will replace them with ASV shortys.. Being able to tell how fast I was going was really cool too.
