What did you do to your WR today?

I'm 13 and I'm tall enough to fit on the wr450 and weigh 130 do you think the bike would be good for me

NO!

Consider a 250 but don't think about a 450. If you fit a 125 height wise then you fit most all bikes but that does not mean it is good for you.

What size bike do you currently ride?

YZ450F Exhaust, it's loud but I would never go back  :) Noise is not an issue where I ride. 

Acerbic Fuel tank not installed yet

MotoZ Enduro I/T tire front and rear not installed 

Cargo rack not installed 

New X ring gold series chain and sprockets not installed 

 

Next in the off season I need to swap the starter parts to the 04 version for piece of mind.

Got new radiators and hoses. Just waiting on plastic and it's all fixed

New radiators

Installed a Boysen Supercooler impeller and cover last night. Hopefully this will make enough difference in the slow stuff so that I don't need to get a fan.

Got in ride #15 for the year on the weekend.   27 miles of pure single track except 3 miles of logging road to take a short cut to get back to the truck in time to make my wife not mad.   No issues to report.  Bike runs well.  It's very fun to ride.

 

Some of my rides have been training rides where I've taken a newbie out and shown them the ropes.  But I still probably have 10 real rides in this year.  That's good considering I didn't get started until June.

Put on some fresh rubber for the start of the rainy season , at least I hope it rains .

I'd like to hear your opinion on it.

I will be riding some slow technical single track with lots of elevation changes tomorrow. It's supposed to be about 80F so it should be a decent test. I'll report back here with how it worked for me.

ImageUploadedByThumper Talk1442698649.529762.jpgjust installed the nomadic rack.

Washed it, did the air box mod and added a power commander.

Today I removed all my plastic to start the changeover to my black and yellow scheme. Went ahead and removed my Mohard radiator guards, which are awesome and super strong and definitely saved me more than once, and went back to the stock set up since I'm not in the desert anymore. Also removed my coolant overflow bottle and installed a Tusk lithium battery - still had the stock Yuasa which was going strong. I then made a new stronger and lighter license plate/tail light mounting bracket and switched over to a (most likely non-DOT approved) all in one brake light and turn signal assembly. I will post pictures and how much weight I removed when I hopefully finish it up tomorrow.

Real easy.

Rode about 20 miles then I got a pinch flat and I had just used my spare tubes in my new tires

so I was done for the day .

I rode 54 single track miles yesterday in 75F temps. I have ridden these trails many times this summer, and I hit 210F-230F on about 6 trails typically (my bike boils at 230F and I have my trailtech Voyager warning lights set up to come on at 210 and 220). Yesterday, I never once got above 199F. The Voyager gives a temp readout chart for the whole ride so this is not just a guess. Basically, the Boysen supercooler lowered my temps by ~20F. I'm super happy with it after this one ride.

Awesome! Didn't expect to hear that drastic of an improvement. I think one of those and a Rekluse and I will be in business with this bike. Now if I can only figure out how to mount my throttle-side hand guard (non-bark buster type)...
