I put a brake snake on my pedal so that doesnt happen. This may scare me enough to try to fabricate a brake pedal stop like the Endurocross bikes are using now. Basically it is a poly or aluminum block that fits into the swingarm pivot recess in the frame. Most that I have seen are using a handguard bar end lock to hold this block into the hollow end of the swingarm pivot bolt.

I might just have to look into that myself. Thanks for the heads up.:smirk:

No sweat! I found a pic from Zip Ty Racing on a husky. Looks like they offer them for a few applications, and it might not be worth building my own since they don't cost all that much. I wonder how tough this would be to adapt to a Yamaha or other bikes....

I got bored and unlaced my spare wheels. I am going to make a 420mm front / 17" rear supermoto wheel set out of them. My plan for my '06 WR 508 is to retire it to an easy life on the street with a few scattered dual-sport bashings for good measure.

I'm already geared up to lace and true a bunch of rims so if any of you guys need some rim work, i'll hook you up big time!

Thanks for posting the pic and link. That would have definately saved my master cylinder.

It looks like it might be fun to try to make one of those. For me, it would be a simple four step process:

1- Fab the part.

2- Realize I screwed it up and throw it away.

3- Order a zipty unit online.

4- Install it on my bike.

And viola! I have the satisfaction of doing the whole thing myself!!:smirk:

Took my 2011 WR450F I purchased on Friday out for her break in ride. My boy took a couple of pictures while it sat on the trailer. Nothing like a good old fashion Washington mud bath for a break in rider.

      Hey guys,
      Im looking to buy a new Yamaha 2 stroke within the next couple weeks but i cant decide whether i would be happier with the 2018 yz 250 or the 2018 yz250x. Heres my riding background. Ive been riding for 15 years, I raced in the A class for 5 years until money got tight and i gave up racing all together. Since i then I realized how much fun single track riding is and just free riding with the buddies. I still occasionally ride tracks but about 80% of my riding is trails. I live in Michigan and if you have ever ridden in Michigan then you know the trails can get as rough as a motocross track. My local trails have sand whoops that i would compare to
      REDD-BUUUDDDS sand whoops.
      Ive never owned a "trail" bike ive always taken my race bikes and made them into "trail" bikes. My last bike being a Yz125. 
      That being said i know all the mechanical and technical differences between the 2 bikes. Im a bit worried that the 250x just wont have the racey feel when im riding. Im also worried then when i do take it to the track the suspension will be a bit soft and the mellow hitting powerband will not allow me to seat bounce the big whoops. But now the standard yz250 might not have enough low end to help me skate through wet black slick dirt and the suspension might be a little to "non responsive" per say in studder bumps. Can you guys give me any sort of guidance. 
      If you would like to check out my riding style on YouTube check out : "Yz125 2 stroke Shredding Michigan Enduro Trails."
      Thanks Guys

      I just bought a 2005 YZ 125 with a ported cylinder & a decked head. I am a trail rider, I do not race. What are my service intervals for top-end rebuild? What brand do you recommend?

      I am selling my California Plated YZ426F. This bike is very rare because there are not many CA plated YZ426F's and it is in great condition. The bike has been garaged and well maintained. The bike was just serviced and completely gone through. White Brothers Exhaust/spark arrester, Pro Taper handle bars, steering stabilizer.

      New kickstand, new graphics, new fenders, new LED headlight and turn signals. Front and rear shocks have been serviced by ESP. The bike starts right up and runs well. I have a desert tank, paddle tire, stator, turn signals and other original parts I will include with this purchase. Title in hand. Best way to reach me is by email. Second best way is by text. $3400 OBO
