      Any iOS app devs in the house that can provide a little help?   10/17/2017

      We've been working on a new native app build for TT using a 3rd party's code base.  If we have any apple devs in the house that can help me generate the proper adhoc certificates and load them up into x-code, please shoot me a PM.  I have the full source code of the test version of the app. I just need some help building the required certificates and installing them into the app via x-code.  Please shoot me a PM if you'd be willing to lend a hand. https://thumpertalk.com/messenger/compose/?to=2

What did you do to your WR today?

4,510 posts in this topic

I use to have one it gives you a WR traction map and a YZ speedster map. Just for the price of the switch.

Definitely not ripping on the idea or any form of cheap ingenuity.  I personally didn't see enough of a difference to wire a switch, but to each his own!  I've read about it here and thought it was amusing that MountainRider got the set up and removed it.

Maybe it wasn't wired right I tried it on and off and couldn't notice a difference. I could see that maybe on a really rainy day in the hills needing it but for me it doesn't make since but to each their own.

Did you kill the bike each time you tried to switch maps?

+ 1 you gotta kill the ignition to switch maps on a stocker.

 

I am now running a Vortex ignition with on the fly adjustable maps. But I seem to only leave it on the 06' YZ450 map. Go figure.

Ya I did I figured that you would have to switch maps and a little update after having the bike in the air over night the new rear tire wasn't holding air they pinched the tube so I took it down to the shop and they threw in a heavy duty tube and fixed it free of charge. Quick question for street use what psi should I run my tires at?

If your really running street I would do 28-32 PSI

I got the fan off of ebay, here's the link to that fan http://www.ebay.com/itm/301271670645?_trksid=p2059210.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT if you get the fan and wire it up and it is a pusher not a puller that is because the wires need to be switched around (know from experience). The switch I used to turn it on and off is  http://www.ebay.com/itm/141140656787?_trksid=p2059210.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT. The radiator guards I believe say Devol on them, I will check to see if I am right when I get home. What do you mean by adapt from another one?

Yes they are DeVol

Brought it home. Picked up a "used" 2014 WR450F from some local yamaha rep that had no use for it. Came with a bunch of stuff already fitted on and it only had 24 miles on it. i guess it was used for a display bike at a local Dealer.

Well I took care of the abysmal fuel range of my 2012 WR today and installed the 16ltr Safari Tank. This thing is huge to say the least. Checking and changing the oil has just become a lot harder too. Should be able to get at least 260km out of a fill.

Received my Yamaha FI Diagnostic tool from the Netherlands today.  Hooked her up and set my CO level to 8.

 

Dumped a new FI map on her.  Now just need to get out and give her a whirl on a local mountain!

I just finished converting to street/SM use with 17" wheels. I have been slowly working on this for too long. Just about time to put the off road wheels back on.

Last night I did a neat mod to the left side drain plug hole where you tighten the plug bolt just enough to strip the case threads, and then drill it out and tap in some M10x1.25 threads and pretend like it never happened. Hey, at least both sides use the same size drain plug now. I really did it to streamline my parts supply on hand. Yeah, that's it.

Took some family photos.

I also discovered the Tubliss system (high pressure tube) on the front of my WR is leaking bad and doesn't hold air at all. I need to call tomorrow and find out if they have a warranty. It worked great last weekend up in the mountains on some nasty rocky and rooted trails.

Raced a local harescramble. Did decently and had a ton of fun. Good start, but quite a few guys got turned around behind me and cut nearly 3miles off the first loop so picking my way past people the first two laps really slowed my progress. Overall successful day. No broken bike or bones.

jetting nailed down perfect and might have to mess with it again after the cam install .

      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???

      Hello everyone! I am new to the forum and this is my first post. I would like to ask for some advice regarding some upcoming motorcycle purchases. My parents are in the process of purchasing a mountain cabin here in Colorado (Redfeather lakes) some time soon. The cabin is surrounded by dirt roads and trails so they intend to buy several dirt bikes for me as well as my younger brother and sister to put around on while we are staying up there. I would like to ask for some advice/ suggestions regarding which motorcycles would be the best choice for me (my younger siblings as well). So, I have a few years of dirtbike-riding experience on a crf100, but that is it. I haven't ridden one in a long time though I do have a sport bike which I ride a lot now.  I have an affinity for two-strokes and would love to pick one up. There are several nice older ktm 300 exc's on craigslist for around 3,000 dollars , as well as several yz250s in a simlar price range. I would love to have the ktm, but I am afraid that the maintenance cost will be very high despite it being a two stroke. The yz is a motocross bike but I hear that they can work as a trail bike. There is even one nice looking kdx 220 that I have my eye on (My friend says that its the greatest trail bike ever made. Is that true?). Would any of those be preferable to another, and come someone touch on the maintenance costs of those bikes (replacing top ends and such?)? There is always the option of a four stroke as well and I guess there are a lot more options there, though as i said I would prefer a two stroke. I saw a few nice xr400s, some crf450x's (is that overkill?), a REALLY nice klx 300 (my dad had one of these), some others also. Basically, can someone chime in on what would be the best bike to get? Does this all just boil down to preference? Basically I am just looking for a reliable, fairly powerful bike that I could pick up for a few grand and is preferably 2 stroke but doesn't have to be. Thanks!
