What did you do to your WR today?

Yeah that's why I changed my stick seat. Long rides would chap my ass lol. I'll let you know how this one works out

I kicked her to life after a month long rebuild!

 

 

Now I just need to put the plastics back on to make her look pretty again.

went to my local shop for the usual Maxxis Desert IT and if they didn't have that I was going to

give a trials tire a go.........

 

They didn't have either so the sales guy some how talked me it the IRC MB5 130-80-18....

Holy giant knobbies Batman , its a little on the huge/aggressive side but gonna give it a shot , plus

 

this thing is might come in handy to trench some new sprinkler lines in the yard .

 

A 140/80/18 will last a bit longer and is even a bit more bad ass and good hook up.

Took off to the desert. IMS 3.0 and a get outta jail free plate on fender.

Tried out the new Rekluse and it was better than I expected.

how was the install of the Rekluse? I've never tried one and I love my clutch what's it like? Tell your buddy he needs to get the same tire to keep up!

  1.  does the  Rekluse kit come with the proper  calibration for the wr450? been thinking of purchasing one this summer for my bike...

The install was super easy. I bought the EXP 3.0 and it comes setup for a YZ in the box , to setup it up for a WR you change 3 of the 6

springs in the Rekluse ( supplied in the box) , takes less than 5 min.  Once that is done remove rear brake lever , clutch cover, pressure plate

and all the friction/drive plates and reinstall per the instructions . You will have removed 2 drive plates and 3 friction plates to take the place 

of the Rekluse unit . Reinstall the pressure plate swapping in three new pressure plate springs . Put the cover and brake lever back on and you

are ready adjust it .

 

Takes less than an hour to install and adjusting and break in takes less than a half hour.

 

It works perfect in fact if you keep using your clutch lever normally you don't even notice its there .

 

Clutch modulation is way better than I could ever do using the lever.

 

Still have full engine compression braking and some how you can still stab the rear brake when ever you want and the engine never stalls.

 

It really made me faster in the tight turns, seriously it did. In a tight hairpin turn where I would usually down shift to first

I was able to carry second gear through it and have good power on exit and already be in the right gear. Same with second to third

on the bigger turns.

 

Also hill climbing was much easier , could carry second gear on the steep climbs with out losing momentum where I would normally

downshift to first mid climb.

 

The only negatives I found were , if you didn't make it up the hill and you are trying to turn the bike around its a little harder cause the

back wheel turns freely where as normally the wheel would be locked up in gear keeping the bike from rolling .

The clutch lever is a little harder to pull.

 

Its friggin magic and worth every penny !

Got turned around by some snow:

Over the weekend, traded my KX 250 for this 02 WR426.  Havent had a chance to take it out to the woods yet but love it so far.  As a side note, it wasn't muddy when i picked it up   ;)

I did my first big ride on it yesterday(2013 450). 100 miles mostly dirt roads and ditches.

Awesome bike. Seat sucks and will need to remedied. Arse is sore today.

Took it out to St. Joe ORV park, thrashed it in the mud on the single track trails, pretty slippery today. A lot of rain lately. Then brought it home and cleaned it up, and added a little bling.

The Husky is a lot easier to deal with in the muddy, snotty rocks than the WR!

Went out to wash it today and found this .........so sick to death of this problem.

Had the same problem with my damper rod mount after the first ride out. I took it off and cleaned the frame and mount really well and then used blue loctite on the bolts. It's held up on a few rough rides now. I think the over the bar mounting puts enough torque on the rod that the bracket works its way up and off the frame.

Had that issue with a couple of previous bikes. What I did is drill/tap 2 small set screws into the neck clamp and divit the frame where they are going to seat. Never had a problem after that.

Looked at it for awhile wishing I had somewhere to ride it. :banghead:

Never had that issue on my bike but a buddy did. A quick spot weld took care of it.

Took it Easter shopping for the kids to top of the world and back(120miles) total and gave it a bath. Great day awesome bike. Seet still sucksImageUploadedByThumper Talk1397946211.952752.jpg
