2000 WR400F Rebuild - Process Pictures.

Nice build the bike looks awesome! I really like the white/ black and the plain look without graphics.

Thank you very much. I am going to design some graphics but nothing like most bikes, just very clean and non flashy, it will look very similar to what it does now.

Very stoked for the end to become near, now if this weather would cool down! I want to go ride it!

Heck yeah that is going to be a really fun bike!

I hope so!

Anyone have any recommendations for the clicks on the good ol' suspension?

I'm 6'0" and about 185 LBS. Looking for a comfortable ride at first before I learn the bike and start getting more aggressive and riding off the front.

I would start with what ever the manual recommends. Those bike were built for a rider about your weight. Then make changes to fit your riding style. If you dont have one you can get it free here....

Where is that info in the manual? I can't find it...

Look in the "Regular Inspection and Adjustments" section. Pages 3-35 through 3-41.

Well, small update, The bike is literally good to go and I can't wait to get it out in the dirt. Been checking the weather every week hoping for a cold front to swoop in so I can load it up and head to Ocotillo but nothing yet on the horizon.

Bike started first kick yesterday and the plating process is going underway!:eek:

I would start at 10 clicks out from all the way in on all the clickers. There is clickers on top of the forks (rebound), bottom of forks (compression), bottom of shock (rebound), top of shock (low speed compression for the clicker), top of shock (high speed compression, red hex nut).

Use 10 clicks out for all the clickers and go from there making small adjustments as needed.

For the red hex nut start in the middle, I think it only has 3 full turns

No high speed comp adjuster on the 99 shock.

Oh ok yeah I wasn't sure if they had them before 01ish but figured I would mention it anyway. Isn't the bike a 00?

Same thing. 98-00 identical I believe...

Don't know about the US version but the '00 had the small YZ tank, the aluminium radiators, and the choke and hot start knobs inserted on the carburator

I have a '99 and it has choke and hot-start on the carb... Canadian model I think (or US... same? North American Model perhaps?) So the Can / US / North American model may have been different than what was available to you in portugal. Anyone else know for sure?

not sure if the rads are aluminum but they certainly appear to be, and the tank is a 3.3 IMS aftermarket with YZF shrouds now, and it came to me that way so I have no clue which tank came on it originally, however i doubt it would have been the same as the YZF because the shrouds are different on the 99s between the YZF and the WRF, I think... Again... any others able to confirm this?

Still waiting for this damn weather to clear so I can take her out to Ocotillo and break her in! Someone turn the AC on!!! :smashpc:

Very nice!

Alright, I don't think I can take the waiting anymore...

May be breaking her in this weekend in Barstow... :smashpc:

Hey Nancy-- Ship that bike up to me, I'll ride the hell out of it, hot weather or not!

LOL- Just kidding, I hope you get a chance to put it to good use soon.

T-Minus 2 days until her Maiden Voyage!
