What did you do to your WR today?

What I did to my WR today: loaded it onto a trailer so I can take it back to the dealership. With 2 rides and 249 miles on it after buying it brand new, it's now not starting. I found this out yesterday after getting to what should have been the 3rd ride and coming to a pretty certain conclusion that I don't have spark and it's likely the ignition coil. :foul: Completely unacceptable...that's why I bought a new bike, so I wouldn't have these kind of issues.

went trail clearing with my buddy.

You probably need a valve adjustment. I thought the same thing and it turned out to be a intake valve was out of spec. Now it starts better than it did new.

I'll add that to the list of things to check. Called the dealer and the WR only has a 30 day warranty. &%$#@! is up with that? 30 days warranties are for infomercial crap. So looks like I get to deal with the headache of figuring out exactly what's going on.

1.) Test spark plug

2.) Test the coil

3.) Look at the valves

4.) Hopefully the service manual is helpful

5.) If all else fails, I'll resort to raging

EDIT: LOL I love how the 3 letter word spelling "duhbayou-tee-eff" is filtered out. Wow.

EDIT2: So I checked the bike after work today. Found out that it was a transistor in my wiring harness for the R6 killswitch I'm using. Somehow the transistor crapped out so it was as though the kill switch was always on. Found out by simply unplugging the killswitch to effectively bypass it. It first on the first try. That was the last thing I expected.

Took it way up in the alpine which is finally almost clear of snow.

I wouldn't have gone to work either.

BTW is that chainsaw mount homemade?

It looks pretty good.

you can use the 2010+ yz250f and yz450f fender. You just have to oval out the holes inward then put the metal spacer/inserts into the new fender.

You mean like this ?

I got a 2010 yz450f Acerbis fender from a local shop. ( yeah I stole the Yamaha symbol placement from Bandit9 )

Taking the exhaust cam out it the morning to grind the decomp pin and retard it one tooth to give it some snappiness.

I've been looking at the FMF Powercore 4 lately, Whats It like for loudness, compared to stock? On a scale of 1 to 10 maybe? comparing stock and the FMF?

Thanks!

Here is a Video I made of my FMF swap.

what Is that blue residue behind the cam lobs ?

I added a homemade tugger strap to my seat. Used an old fan belt. Will see how long it lasts before ripping or cracking. ImageUploadedByThumper Talk1374955792.433251.jpg

I assume either Loctite or marking die used at the factory during assembly.

the grinding went well..........

ready to grind.

IMG4523_zpsf0db9b65.jpg

finished product and a stock one for comparison .

IMG4531_zpsc2f61962.jpg

IMG4539_zps2bc37c60.jpg

Started out as .9265 and took it down to .8835 or 23.53mm to 22.51.

Fingers crossed nothing unexpected happens.

Yzf cam mod complete !

I can not test ride it at home or the wife will come un-friggin-glued, but it fired right up first kick

and definitely sounds better/meaner/snappier , which is to say that it sounds like the other

mx bikes on my street , which reminds me ....... time to put back on the quiet tip on the Lexx !

I did notice one draw back................ the E-start hangs up a little when the motor is cold, it still did

start but it took a few attempts , but once warm the Estart worked easily. The hang up is probably my

fault for grinding/rounding down a little to far on the decomp pin leading edge than I should have.

Hoping to test it out later in the week......................

Did a 150km run to the top of Mt. Sproat south of Revelstoke with my buddy on his 1977 XT500.

Took some pushing & overheating to get him up there, but we got him within walking distance of the lookout @ 7260ft.
