What did you do to your WR today?

Can you tell me if the tank and stock seat is a perfect fit?

It is, I'm quite happy with the swap. I ended up with a different tank, but it is an IMS natural oversized tank.

You can see closeup photos of both in my garage. I have to push on the seat a little to get the rear screws in, but no worse than an aftermarket seat on my friends 250X.

Unabiker radiator guards won't fit with an oversized YZ tank though. I have a thread in this forum on that. Devol seems to fit.

Finally brought my bike down to have the valves checked, Something i should have done long ago

Good job, this is something that should be done regularly. Get the service manual and do it yourself every couple of oil changes. It isn't hard to do at all.

It will save you some dough if you catch them before they grenade your top end.

Just bought an 09 WR450F couple months ago.

So far have done;

AIS Removal

Grey Wire

FMF Full System

Boysen Quickshot 2

Boysen Waterpump

Moose Racing handgaurds

Moose Racing Skid Plate

:cry:Sold it today.

Looking at a 2008/9 holdovers.:p

Wife is leaving me because of my obsession:thumbsdn:

Winter build up time.:smirk:

Priorities

1. JD Jetting

2. FMF powerbomb exhaust with Q4

3. SPI suspension rebuild

4. Armor

5. Tusk enduro light kit

6. Plate it

7. Ride away my sorrows

Bought a slightly used 2007 today. Stock with the exception of a BD light kit. Time to start planning the new build:thumbsup:

I replaced the crank assembly due to a bearing failure, replace 3 intake valves due to carb boot leak, put in YZ exhaust cam, jetted carb and polished ports in head and combustion chamber. That combined with FMF exhaust system = WOW!!! Instant response, pulls to the rev limiter.

I had to replace the crank too. Did your crank gear (timing chain) have alot of wear too?

I'll be getting my bike back from my mechanic, with a new rear tire, new pilot jet, new float bowl valve and seat or whatever it's called, new rear wheel bearings, and then working to dial in the suspension with him to be plush for off road riding.

...then it's off for a mudfest this Sunday sunday sunday!!!!

put on some new Plastic and Graphic

WOW that looks sick! What's the skidplate on that? It looks heavy duty!

That is just totally sick.

Just did the JD jetting kit on my 08. It really smoothed things out a lot. I'm glad I spent the money. The WR is just a really nice riding machine. I'm falling in love with it. I think the YZ 250 2t is going up for sale.

Now it's time to decide on cams. The YZ cams are attractive if it wasn't for the starting issues.

Very cool!

Well I took my WR400 out for it's inaugural (to me) trail ride, and it was friggen AWESOME! I'm coming off a 1982 XR250... and man did they do a lot with suspension in those 17 years, haha! I also had Mike Cardenas clean out the carbs and set the accelerator pump stuff for me, and the bike is AMAZING! Takes a few kicks to start, but after that it starts first kick, every time, with EASE! The decompression is easy enough to work with, the hot start works, and sometimes it doesn't even need it! MAN this bike rocks!

I float over stuff that used to throw me off, I tractored up hills, I bombed jumps bigger than usual and didn't bottom out, and I wheelied EVERYWHERE! BOOYA!

No, the chain was fine. Everything around the crank was good as new excepth the bearing.

Put fastway hand guards on and a Pirrelli rear tire and rode it. Ya who!!!!!!!!
