OK, THIS time, I'm gonna do it juuuust right. No really....

I currently do not own a WR450F.

I sold my last two 2007's over a year ago. I am WR-less.

I have been shopping for YZ suspension on Ebay for months, and now have 2006 front and 2007 rear suspension on the way. $425.00 for both.

The forks come with YZ clamps too, which are the same geometry? Curious to know.

I look daily at CL for low hour 2007 and later WR's, and they are starting to show up again.

Found one with stock tires for $3200; gonna go look at it tomorrow.

I am going to build a Dual Sport 'trail bike' designed for all kinds of riding, but mostly very slow single track.

My plan:

  • AS Racing suspension tuning
  • Carb updates (apump linkage spring, diaphargm, jetting, twin jet apump nozzle, etc)
  • Tall-guy seat/bars/pegs
  • Damper
  • Special Contruction re-vin of frame for street licensing
  • Basic Dual sport lighting kit
  • Li Battery
  • Tubeless
  • Full Titanium axles, fasteners, steering stem, rod, bars, etc.
  • Kidding about the last one.

No YZ motor upgrades

No cams

No non-stock graphics kits

No anodized 'bling' crap

No colored spoke covers

No Metal Mulisha bar pads

No sand flags

No Black anything but the seat and tires

NO skulls, flames, or 'chicks' stickers.

Won't this be fun!

Oh, and I just put this forum back into my bookmarks, so watch out you guys with black plastics.....

Welcome back Krannie! I left my WR down in Baja this winter, so I was bikeless for three weeks. Those were the most difficult three weeks in my Adult life!!! :cry:

Yes, let's ride.

Still hunting for the bike.

I'm not gonna pay $4200.00 for a used 2007 when I can get a 2011 for 6200 OTD...

Depends on the state, and how you want to approach it.

I told them it was legal and paid $9 dollars. Having to jump through all the hoops seems very un-American :lame: I am contemplating selling my 08 but I live in AZ :thinking:
