Pulled the rear subframe off and removed the linkages, shock and swingarm. It looks like the bike has been cut in half!

New rear suspension bearings, new swingarm bearings and new wheel bearings are going in.

Pulled the carby off (whilst it was easy to get to) and gave it a good internal clean.

Also removed tons of dirt from hard to reach places.

Put my Bike back together after installing a YZF pipe, rejet, and a greasing of the linkage and swing arm. Then took it for a spin on my little 5 acre track/trail. I love the new setup, it runs great! Also ordered a PCRacing Flo Filter Kit.

You gotta do what you gotta do. At least you have a oil burner to keep you going. Tuff times will pass and then you can get another one.

Welp, I sold a part from one bike via a form, got paid in paypal, and I spent the money again on stuff needed for my WR!

-New steering stem bearings (My current ones are destroyed!)

-New Grips (fancy schmancy pro-grip ones)

-New throttle Tube (Previous owner mauled the OEM one, so it's now cut down to nothing).

-New fork protectors (mine lost a fight with a tree)

I put a new Acerbis Spyder disc guard on, cleaned and greased the axle/bearings, swapped out the handlebars, added hand guards, added frame guards. Took the carb off and put the other JD needle in and swapped out the old pilot and main jets with new jets.

I spent part of the day looking for new, clear vent line (the old stuff was well, "Old"), and finally said screw it and put the old stuff back on (and ordered 25 ft of it through Motion Pro for $8.95).

Flushed out the tank, added new gas and before trying to start it noticed it was still draining gas out of the float bowl. Guessing the float/needle jet is stuck. Grrrrrrr.... So I guess I'm going to go out and doink with it some more.

So the previous owner cheese-dicked the shit out of my current WR400f with a bunch of ghetto work, and a complete lack of maintence. Part of the mistakes made included zip tieing on the rear brake reservoir right where it could melt onto the exhaust... and then get full of dirt...

I hit up Cardenas Motorsports recently to get a new rear brake lever (stock slightly bent) and a replacement rear resevoir, and went to put all of them on. When I started pumping the brake fluid through... this is what I got...

Holy schneike's batman! That's brake mud alright! I'm not even done yet... it was still coming out partly black! I'm going to get my friends mighty vac and make sure I definitely get every last little bit of it through... but WOW that's ungodly bad!!

I have done absolutely nothing since my crash. I am now finally out of a brace but my knee is sure stiff and sore. I need to add blinkers to my WR now that the state law has changed. I am thinking about just replacing the kit I have now and just going with a completely new kit. I have a ride planned for the end of January S. Utah. I hope my knee loosens up.

I installed ACD radiator guards on my 09 WR450. When I took them out of the packaging I thought, "there is no way in hell these things are gonna fit". But, an hour and half later, they were on.

      I will be going on a trip around US and will be towing my WR my the front wheel like in the pic below. I don't want to be eating up the knobby tires on the long freeway stretches. Is there any rear rim that can fit properly on the WR, that isn't a WR rear wheel as they are kind of pricey, so that I can switch it out for when I'm towing it? I don't need it to be able to fit the break or sprocket, just need it to be able to roll properly. 
      Edit: Since this is turning into "how to tow a motorcycle" thread, I've looked at all my other options. Buying a car that can handle that, trailers, bike carrier on a hitch, etc. I've towed my bike like this plenty of times without a single issue, and have spoken with other owners that have done the same. With the chain and rear break disconnected there is no way the bike engine will be hurt by towing the bike this way. I don't have anywhere that I can store a trailer when not in use, I'm not going to buy another car just so 1% of the time that I use it for towing i can tow properly with it, and the hitch carrier wont work for my vehicle as they don't make hitches strong enough for it to handle the full weight of the motorcycle. Simply want to know how to figure out how to figure out what wheel and spacer would work on the rear to have the wheel spin freely when not connected to to chain or break.

      My top end went on m 98 cr 125, the needle bearing clip came out and broke apart and shrapnel got everywhere and blew it up. I cleaned out the top end and washed out the crank with the bike upside down. the bike starts up great and seems to run fine but im getting a weird di-di-di-di-di-di-di noise coming from the motor. i tried adjust the power valve and tightening everything but the noise is still there. Here is a link to a video where you can hear the sound. It gets louder as rpm's get higher and at really low rpm barely idling it goes away. I am pretty new to bikes and 2 strokes so any help would be appreciated.
