What did you do to your WR today?

Took her for a ride today along with my boys. Got her a little dirty. She was such a dirty, dirty girl!IMG_7540.jpg

Could not have asked for a better day. If you look close you can see Mt. St. Hellens in the back ground. Had my phone set up on a log so it was not the best picture ever taken.

Took the swingarm off and installed a tm designworks chain slider. I took the entire swingarm off so i could power wash it and install the slider with silicone. I applied just enough to where it sealed perfectly everywhere and didnt spill out, I also didnt tighten the screws in all the way untill it was dry, wait atleast 48-72 hours before reinstalling or dirt with stick to the silicone and it wont wash off... No more sand/dirt underneath this guys chainslider!

If you never noticed, your chain slider is freefloating.... dumb design, if sand/dirt gets underneath and it moves, it seriously wears on the metal swingarm.

With movement of the chainslider eliminated, this translates into a smoother direct drive of the chain and less wear of the sprockets.

she rides much smoother now, no chain slap in low rpm..

I would definitely reccomend this for anyone with a WR/YZ.

plus it looks MFNBA!

finished product

next time you go for a new filter, try out a moose racing filter. moose doesnt actually make it, another company does and ill tell you what. it's much better quality than twin air. the seal around the air box is twice as good. im not doggin on twin air but moose just has a great product.

I really like the moose one my self. Great product

So, norm02 have you done any mods yet?

I got a no toil air filter.. Kinda looks and feels cheap. Also took my forks off, they hard to rebuild? And Ams oil shock therapy #10 any good?

Hey guys, just found this section. Pretty new owner, only had mine about two weeks now.

Don't ask me why the previous owner decided it was a good idea to slap YZ stickers on it.

Funny, I was looking at the pictures and thinking why is there YZ stickers on it? Then I saw your post below.

Your gonna love it if you don't already!

Insalled: Boyesen QS3 accelerator pump, Boyesen impeller and cover, Scary fast power now carb insert, Twin air air filter, JD jetting kit and adjustable air/fuel mixture screw. New plastic and graphics this week!

finished off the plastics. they finally all arrived.

New owner here with a left over 2011 WR. Brought it home and immediately put on an old pair of Tusk D-Flex handguards, Moose fender pack, Tugger's front and rear, and thumb savers. After doing break in I did my oil change. So today it was remove the peashooter, snorkel, grey wire pulled/taped off, removed and cut down throttle stop, installed Tusk fork seal guards, old school Acerbis Upper fork guards, and cleaned my air filter. Waiting for it to try so I can oil it.

Nice! God I love ripping into a new bike. So is that the 250 or the 450? While your at it you might want to repack all of the bearings. When I got mine I did a break in ride and then did all of the mods and added goodies like you but went as far as repacking everything. Lets just say the dealership is saving their money on grease this year! Glad I took the extra time to do it now.

450. Hunted around for a while, and boy dealerships wanted to much for dirt bike. OTD price paying full sticker was nearly $10K. My local dealer offered up at $8K, but that was still high. Ended up going down to Long Beach and picking one up for $6,600 OTD which I could live with. Best I could find in California at the time. Bike is awesome and exactly what I wanted for the trails I run. I will agree that the factory does not put didly for grease on anything. I am slowly starting to go through eerything and regrease it. Definitely worth the initial headache of doing.

Nothing major today, but between the rain showers I finally got around to fitting a Yamalink (http://www.motorcycleloweringlinks.com) to my WR400.

Dropped the forks a few mm as well, and reset the sag. The rain started just as I finished putting my tools away :thumbsup:

I have a GoPro Hero 2 on the way, so I'm looking forward to getting out and having some fun. :thumbsup:

Put a Yamalink on my 04 WR450 a couple of years ago, dropped the triple trees as much as I could and re-set the sag...just like you did...best thing I ever did!!

You're gonna have fun!!!

re-set the sag.

You're gonna have fun!!!

What is that? Does it lower it some? Sorry for the ignorance jus never heard of it and curious

The Yamalink replaces the lower shock link with one slightly longer. This lowers the seat by about 1.5", gives an increased leverage ratio, improves traction, stability & cornering.

Very easy to fit - took about an hour including dropping the forks a few mm, resetting the sag, having a coffee and taking it for a test ride.
