What did you do to your WR today?

it is not even the same bike after these two mods - while I don't open it up that far too often when riding the single track in the woods, the extra throttle is awesome when I'm giving it hell on a fire road or a sandy beach :thumbsup:

When I originally bought my WR I went to buy a DRZ. I raced the salesman down the road and the DRZ was faster in stock form. I told the dealer I couldnt believe it. He said to give him a minute and then he had the YZ throttle stop put on it and we raced again. The WR was now much faster because it could use more throttle. You need to replace your throttle stop, even if you don't think you will need the extra power. You don't have to use it but knowing its there is nice and as you gain confidence in your skills, you will roll on more power.

Have fun and be safe

Replaced my throttle cables as holllly shit they were bad!

I also did some basic maintenance. Changed the oil, cleaned the oil filter, cleaned the air filter (waiting for it to dry so I can oil it) and gave it a general look over.

I keep seeing everyone talking about JD jetting kits, removing the throttle stop, and the greywire mod. I should probably get the JD jetting kit for my 99 WR400, but after looking at my carb I'm not so sure I have a throttle stop like everyone is describing. The grey wire is supposedly already cut however.

No throttle stop on your '99. Maniac

Uhh.. did I read that right as "There is no throttle stop on it, you're a goof" or is it "Your a maniac for not having one!!!!!".

The two are very different, but both can come form your sentence.

Welp, no response. Oh well. I swapped out my original Wr400 rear brake cylinder for the 426 integrated brake master cylinder. It cuts a lot of headache out of my life, and after much bleeding and adjusting I'm sure it's an improvement over stock.

Since his screen name is Maniac, I'd read it as "the 99's didn't have the throttle stop change issue" as told by Maniac.

That's my take.

Unless for some reason he thinks you nuts in which case I can't comment one way or another!

I got it back! After 5th gear seized to the output shaft at 75 mph, a buddy replaced the parts and it's back to life (seat is off cuz the battery was dead and will need charging

More minor stuff. Topped the oil off after the oil change, cleaned the chain, farted around to make sure all is well. Lubed the clutch cable.

Tomorrow is shred time!

Replaced the fork seals and bushings for my buddy just in time for another snow storm.



... I used it :thumbsup:

Have a 01 Wr426 Supermoto I ride every day to work 35 mile there and back some on motorway and I mean every day I drive the crap out of it and I had no probs in a year

Welp, I'm pretty much comitted to taking the suspension plunge on my WR400. I'll be taking the suspension in to a local suspension builder and having it completely serviced, rebuilt, resprung, and revalved for me and the type of terrain I'll primarily be riding. Looking forward to that!

While that's going on I'll be redoing the swingarm bearings, and the linkage bearings.

At that point, I'll have addressed everything there is there.

Next month, it'll be changing out the piston, and putting in a new cam chain, along with a hotcams exhaust cam with auto-decomrpess to make my life easier.

At that point, my WR400 should be completely sorted out and ready to shred for years to come!

Havn't ridden in 3 months so i might sell both. I have no clue what to do :cheers:
