Help, I can't stop.

I like some of you are in your late 30's or my case 41, i used to ride mx at saddleback a lot when i was young, Suzuki 90 with a 100 cc hop up kit, but anyway well 25 years later i now own a 00 WR400 i thought that if i buy a $ 5500.00 motorcycle that would be it well first it started with the tires ho so much better then a wer dampener wow, now I'am sending my front forks to get revaled to make it perfect, and also looking for the perfect muffler set up.

Now my problem, i can't stop buying things for my motorcycle i tell myself this will make it handle better ride better and it has, and i realy dig buying all these cool things, but were will it end now I'am thinking about sending my head to Pro Tech and get 7 more hp, what carbon fiber next, sure i will just buy one little carbon fiber part and then before long my whole bike will be carbon fiber out.

I think i need help, but first if any of you have any extra money please sent it to just can't stop po box $$$$$$.

I'd like to help you out but my wife has put a hold on all my accounts and assests. She has set me up with a trust fund that I can't get into until I get help or promise not to spend another dime on my bike. Or I turn 50, which ever comes first. She has also procured court orders stipulating that I can't come within 2 miles of a dealer / parts store or I will be incarcerated up to three years at the Colorado Maximum Security Prison in Buena Vista CO.

I am purchasing an aluminum throttle tube on Tuesday. There are some great views at that Prison.


Dougie, '99 WR400

Mods: YZ timing, Race Tech Suspension, FMF PC IV, FMF Hi FLo Moto, YZ seat, IMS 3.3 tank, One Industries Graphics, Renthal bars, 14/52 gearing.

Bikes with lots of aftermarket goodies and me are a bad combination. Every bike I'v owned where the performance and weight saving parts were available I got them all. I the case of my ATK I had the titantium stuff custom made and even went to Ti spokes and Al nipples to save weight.

Probably easily doubled the purchase price in after market stuff for all bikes except Husabergs but close. My wife has been threatening to leave for the past 26years, she knows where the door is and hasent left yet.


In the last week I have ordered:

Clark gas tank

Tank & gaurd stickers

Factory effects YZ style seat cover & soft-foam

IMS seat base

Dunlop 756 front tire

Moose jersy & gloves

Bike stand


Motion pro throttle cables

My creditcard hurts!

Hey William, if you want to spend some more money I've got an IMS tank (blue) for sale. You'd have to buy a yz style seat to use it.

Ya, I'm using a stock yz400 tank now that I ride a lot of MX and there is a gas stop where we do a lot of off-road riding. I'll sell it for $125 including shipping, does that sound fair? I can't remember how much they go for new, $225???
