ok so we all look here for advice when something goes wrong. We have questions on how to fix whats broken, or whats wrong with my bike? Personally, I first came to ThumperTalk in 2003 to learn the free mods for my WR400. But what about the guys whose bikes don't break down or have problems. My WR has never required major work. I'd guess I have over 10000 miles of Michigan trails on mine. Never had either of the engine covers off. Never had to do more than regular maintenence. Lets hear what some of you have to say about your reliable machines! It is really amazing how far dirt bikes have come. My first bike was a 72 Honda SL125 (4 stroke before 4 strokes were cool) What a turd! You had to work on it for at least 4 hours to enjoy a 20 minute ride, and you were always gauranteed to push it home.
