'08 WR450 PLastics etc.

7 posts in this topic

Hey all! Picked up a '08wr450 last week and was wondering where to get new plastics for a cheap price? Was also wondering is that coolant bottle under the rear fender supposed to be empty and just for overflow when hot?

This thing has 1900km's on it.....should I check out the valves? What else should I look out for on this thing?

All new technology for me compared to the old XR!

Best to keep a little extra coolant in the res so when the radiators purge they can suck back in all they need when they cool. Without anything in the line or res the rad's will suck some air back in, not all coolant.

Thanks for the tips guys. I'm going to check out that motorcycle superstore sight.

Blew a fork seal yesterday also so I'll have to pick couple of those up.

There's a moulded plastic line about an inch from the bottom of the coolant overflow bottle. Keep it topped up to that line.

ATB,
