What did you do to your WR today?

Did you get the standard foam or tall foam?

I went with the tall foam.

I went with the tall foam.

Thanks,  that's the next thing I will be doing to mine once I finish up the street legal stuff.

You will love it. It feels way better

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

 

 

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.

Thanks for the ideas , welding seems quicker and easier but I think I am gonna do the set screw idea.

I gotta do the headset/steering bearings again and its time to do something about the forks ( revalve or YZ ) so I will do it all at the same time.

 

 

Was able to put it back on for last weekends outing and it held all day for an epic Stonyford ride.

Picked up a set of these to help cool it down on the slow tight singletrack stuff for the summer temps .

Most likely just one will be used but since I found em for $38 each , I thought just incase 1 isn't enough, I grabbed 2

and I  think the RickeyStator unit I put in will run them both .....with the headlight .

Glad it worked, just remember to divit where the set screw goes on the neck. How much do those fans weigh?

They weigh just over 1 pound each and they move a lot of air , too bad I cant use them.....

My oversize tank is to close to the rads to fit them in, works with the stock tank but I aint going back

to the stock small tank.  Gonna have to buy the pusher fans instead of the pullers I bought :facepalm: .

Smokin, I had the big tank on my WR and I wouldn't boil even on the hottest days when all the ktms were steaming once I got my jetting and gearing right. By hot I mean 90deg, though.. Imagine Cali is over that?. I use my pressure washer into the radiator fins to blow out all the mud and crap too which makes a big diff.

Well today I did the last step to uncorking it which was the throttle stop. For two reasons I hadn't done this yet 1 pain in the arse to reach and didn't have the safety bit 2 it kept me from getting to crazy while I got used to the 450 as I'm coming off a klx250. It has the comp ecu snorkel removed and a bigger tip I fabbed up on the stock silencer. After 600 miles I'm in love with this bike and it gets better every time I ride it. And now holy shit does it rip up top. I need to crank the suspension back up alittle. It's broke in nicely. But it's very squeaky now so looks like I'm gonna tear it down and grease it soon.

Really glad I bought this bike. Even kinda getting used to the seat alittle ..... Ehhhh ImageUploadedByThumper Talk1400195652.393974.jpgNo it's got to go

It actually only boiled once in 95+ degrees in slow single track in the trees with no wind.....which is to say I heard it gurgling when I stopped.

 

But I have temp gauge and it messes with my melon ,  the bike stays around 160 - 180 on fire roads  but slow single track it doesn't take long for it to go up too 235-260 degrees

so I want the fan for more for consistency and longevity .

Still snow here and there but i got the ol girl out and added a shiny new ufo fender. To bad the side plates are brown with stains and scratches..ImageUploadedByThumper Talk1400286071.094707.jpgImageUploadedByThumper Talk1400286121.394351.jpg

Mounted my new Garmin Montana 650T. It's a bit overkill for what I need, but so is everything in my garage.  Lol

I'm working on photos!!!!!

It was more last week, but in installed a Scott's stabilizer and some Mohard Racing radiator guards. The Mohards are extremely stout.

I also went through my forks again to re-bleed the inner chambers and try a different oil weight and level in the outers prior to racing last weekend. The Scott's stabilizer made a big difference!

Nice Bike, Even nicer Coronet...

Good eye! I know it's off-topic here, but if you search "Homebuilt Bigblock Mopar" on YouTube and you can see what went into it. I'm getting ready to put a different cam in it.
