The stock graphics on my 08 WR450F were getting very shabby. I asked around and found Podium Graphix which is only an hour away from me.

I had them do a custom set for me...

I wrapped the head pipes on the WR, YZ, and...umm...the KX. We're doing some trail riding and some technical single track tomorrow. We'll see if it keeps the exhaust heat off the radiators a little.

Why not just put heat tape on the bottom of the radiator? :lol: I did and it seems to work well. :ride:

Completed my DIY AIS removal and snorkel removal.

In addition to the other "free mods", the dealer had already plugged the AIS with ball bearings, but I wanted it off completely. It was a very easy process, don't know why I waited so long and I'm glad I didn't spend the $50 on the GYTR kit. I drove the cap from an old sharpie pen into the airbox tube, filled the 90* fitting on the intake side of the head with JB Weld, and drove a used/cleaned .357 magnum casing in the 90* fitting on the exhaust side of the head.

i followed a free styler around and got in some good air time... messed up my ankle, cracked my EVS knee guard and scraped up my elbow pretty bad (left my elbow guards in the truck :lol: ) The jump wasn't anything big just really tall step up that had a vertical lip and i hit it too fast so when it tossed me i endo'd instead of landing perfect. landed on the front tire and laid it over to the left :ride:

Did your WR stall out in the water? Mine has.
If you haven't already you need to re-route the carb vent hoses to the top of your airbox.

I think you only have to put 2 of them into the airbox, the rest of them can stay down as original.

Another subject: The police want's me to reduce the sound from my bike. Do you know how to put wool into the exhaust?

(any video / pictures available on the internet?)

Correct. Only the 2 that criss-cross over the top of the carb.

drill out the rivets on your end cap. pop cap off, pack with wool, let the sparks start flying

      CANT FIND A STRAIGHT ANSWER ON FORUMS , NEED HELP NOT SMART ASS COMMENTS 
      Background - cool weather has me motivated on doing a ground up restoration on my 97 yz250 , last year I fully restored my first bike that got me into the sport a "1993 yz125 " . Just like my my build last year It seams Im stuck with the bastard children of Yamaha , parts are hard to find and seems to be little or no aftermarket parts.  I have already spent well over $1,000  on this yz250 in plastics , custom graphics , asv levers , custom gas tank ,  exhaust and other crap so the most cost effective way would be best lol.  I'm wanting to change the look of the bike with black wheels , rims are 160-220 each depending on brand . spokes are 60+ each set and labor is about $200 locally to lace and true . I have searched high and low on forums and google haven't found a single aftermarket set that fits a 1997 everything is 99+ 
      Question -  I have found a newer set of wheels  https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p/1071/42645/Tusk-Impact-Complete-Front-Rear-Wheel-Kit what do I need to make these work on a 1997 ? I know my hubs are 20mm and 99+ have 22mm.  if you could help with part numbers or links on what I need. 
       
       
       
      Here is what I'm going for ( top pic ) the one below are my progress , frame goes to power coating tomorrow

      So i just rebuild my top end of my 2005 250F, i had 35 houres on my piston and cylinder so i decided to rebuild it.
      it ran perfectly before the rebuild, my timing is right, i have spark, en my sparkplug is a little wet so i have fuel... If i try to kick it it starts to run but after 2seconds it stops running. does anyone know what i have to do?
      thx Medard from belgium

      Hey Guys, 
      So I am 270# and 6'. I used to ride and want to get back into it. I definitely have a good amount of experience to handle both a 250 and 450 but not sure if a 250 will be able to handle me.
      Right now the bikes I am between are:
      2012 YZ450F @ 50 hours for $4000 CAD and trail ridden https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1302150376&requestSource=b 2012 KX450F @ 35 hours for $3800 CAD and trail ridden https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1300722287&requestSource=b 2010 CRF450R @ 45 hours for $3200 CAD and trail ridden https://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?adId=1296942462&requestSource=b All these bikes are in really good condition from what I can see from the pictures and none of them raced or track ridden. My plan is to build a 5 acre track in my backyard and build some sort of track along with mainly using it for trail riding.
      I guess what I am asking is for some suggestions and opinions that could help me decide.

      Very nice Rekluse Core EXP 3.0 Clutch that has been ran for about 40 - 50 hours.  The Core EXP 3.0 gives you the best of both worlds as it is fully automatic and allows you to operate it just like you would a manual clutch.  Was getting ready to install in a 2017 YZ250F so I wanted to freshen it up and bought a brand new EXP 3.0 Disc which has never been oiled up or installed.  Before getting time to install the clutch, I decided to sell the bike.  It fits a 2014 - 2018 Yamaha YZ250F. 
      ONLY $575 shipped anywhere in the lower U.S.
      Please call or text me at 801-362-8899.
      Thanks!
