Hello Thumpertalk! I have been gone awhile. I used to ride a DRZ400 and was a part of that forum. The wife made me sell the bike a few years ago. I did the only thing I could think of to make it right. I got rid of the wife and bough another bike. I just picked up a 2004 WR450F that was once plated and it 80% ready to be plated again. Already did some searching and it looks like many of the mods listed here have been done. Need to open up the carb and check the jets, but it sure runs good. Any specific things I need to look at for reliabilty sakes? Perfroemance stuff is easy to find. Yes I am fully aware there is a search function but not knowing what to look for makes it hard to put in keywords. In my case reliabilty is much more important than performance. Of course I want perfromance but never at the expense of reliabilty. I ride mostly by myself and in places that would be a tough walk out. I am getting a spot tracker for injury but I don't want to push the bike out. I look forward to riding and reading this site again.
