15 posts in this topic

Hey everyone,

I just woke the WR last night from a long winters nap! She fired second kick and was idling perfect!:thumbsup:

Then I sat back, had a beer and watched my buddy work up a sweat kicking his XR400 pig for about a half hour!!! :eek:

my wr did not sit all winter . I've been running it every day it was not snowing and some that it was . It will be great when I can ride without a ton of gear on.:thumbsup: I did almost 1100miles on mine since november.

I'm jealous of anybody who gets to ride all winter long!:thumbsup:

I have some of the best riding during the winter, the weather is so nice I can't help it, I just have to ride. The only downside is that I can't ride at the woods places I like to ride. The woods riding is only good between the second half of september and the end of october when the first rain starts to fall. Then it gets snowy and too damn cold to ride the woods. So I have to stay below 3000ft elevation from november to the end of april. The good news is that unless it's raining pretty hard I can still ride at several other places. So my bikes get no breaks at all for winter, they get USED year round.

If I let it sit for a couple weeks...3-4 kicks tops. The only reason why it takes that long is because I don't twist the throttle 2 times to prime the engine.

I have been known to kick w/out either turning on the ignition or the gas. Yes it makes me look like a retard
