What did you do to your WR today?

Fitted some new (blue) breather hoses and prepped it for an outing this weekend with some friends.

Also taught my 12 year old to ride my 9 year old's pit bike. He's never shown an interest before, but decided he wanted a go this weekend.

An hour later, he thoroughly enjoyed it and he's got an order in for a YZ85 :banghead: Good job I'm building a 3 bike trailer!

My youngest was not completely impressed with sharing his bike with his brother. Some comment about "never rub another man's rhubarb" was mentioned.

Graphics kit and operation hide-tools. Got tired of the dang fender packs on there.. plus I want a fender rack for my chainsaw

These fit nicely under the seat.

Some heavy duty 4" tape over tools to keep them secure

Bag that I keep my air compressor in. I have all my tools and air compressor on the bike now without an annoying fender bag. woohoo! Some stuff went behind the headlight and one multi tool into the airbox

I see some tubeless repair tools in your tool kit why ? you are running a tubed tyre - no tubless repair will work and the tyre weld cans from waldo wil not either.

Looks like it will really roar ! Would love to hear it in full flight !

I have a Bill's Pipes Thunder Series on my 99 WR400 which does sound great .... I can only imagine this Lexx sounds even better !

Enjoy ........ Baz

So far I am pretty happy with it, although I havent had a chance ride it yet to feel

the power difference over the stock unit.

The fit was damn near perfect ! Only issue is that now my header touches bolt for one of the oil lines.

I still have to shave a little off the top of that bolt head to get some clearence.

The muffler itself looked and felt really well made and not cheezy at all......except maybe the

mounting "STRAP", just seems weird to be a strap but once everything is tightened its

pretty solid.

It comes with 2 tips, a 46mm "race tip" which is LOUD AS HELL and will require a rejet. Spark arrestor is

purchased separately for the race tip. and the "quiet tip" with a sparky built in is deffanitly louder than stock

and sounds pretty good- thats what I am using.

While it sounds way better it does not have a deep/throaty/bass sound I was kind of expecting but maybe

thats just the way the WR cams sound.

I put this FMF on

I added some Velcro fork seal savers

Installed the comp ECU, but I haven't had it remapped yet.

The pipe looks lovely and is a great fit with the side panel.

The rest of your bike looks super-clean too .... Nice !

Thanks so much. The pipe sounds and performs well but it's not the one I really wanted, there's just not much available yet. The bike is so clean because it only has 110 miles on it and it's still new so I don't mind spending a little extra time cleaning it. LOL

did you try the credit card trick? take your fork guards off and slide a credit card around way up in there a few times. works well enough for me to keep riding the rest of the season

how do you know when you need seals? Mine has some oil on them but doesn't seem to get worse.

They were leaking a bit when the bike was loaded up prior to going out. Had not noticed it before. Not 100% confident on work done by previous owner so will do them anyway and fit some neoprene gaitors at the same time.

I think you meant to say "business card", not credit card. The hard plastic credit card won't get in under the seal. Take a business card, tear off the end and poke the corner of the card up into the seal and move it sideways toward the torn edge. The torn edge will pick up and clean the dirt trapped in the seal.

      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!

      Hi guys I just did a top end rebuild on my 2004 yz450f and I inspected full motor, replaced the bottom end gaskets and seals, timing chain, cylinder, piston,rings, top end gaskets, valves, spark plug, and it ran fine fr about 15 hours besides a quiet ticking noise. I was put riding the other day and after about 6 hours of riding that day my buddy asked what my rev limiter sounds like and I said i don't know and I don't want to blow it up and he said it won't blow up so I started it up and pinned it to hear the rev limiter and I only held it open for one second and then it backfired and died. I tried to start it back up and the compression is extremely low. I can push kick it over with my hand easily. Pulled the head off and found some very small metal particles on the cams, timing was fine, and the top of the piston is ok, (haven't taken it out of the cylinder yet).... Anyone know what it could be???

      Made another YouTube clip of our last ride, thought I'd share with you all.  Cheers!
