I took mine out and crashed it 5 miles into a 30+ mile poker run. What a pain to ride with the forks twisted in the clamps.

Installed new Flatland Radiator Guards. Went pretty smooth minus a little struggle on shaving the shrouds. Took a little trail and error to get it to fit well. Probably work better if I had a nice dremmel instead of a box knife.

Also, i installed new rear turn signals, and added some extra protection (little plates if i ever bottom out.

The problem is my turn signals usually break at the post from all the vibrations off-road. On the street, these things last forever. This time, i added quick disconnect terminals, so i can remove them on long dirt rides or the track.

Ok, the final thing i did was purchase a spare wheel and mounted a paddle tire for the dunes (Pismo/Dumont/Glamis). This was a final fitment test, and it's true, a 2003 YZ450 wheel will fit a 2004 WR450 no problem. I wonder how the gearing will be with a YZ 48 tooth sprocket instead of my 50 tooth on the WR.

I changed the oil and filter, relubed the chain and cleaned the air filter. Checked the air pressure in the tires, resealed the forks and got ready for a trip to Colorado to ride in the mountains.

I re-aligned the fork and pulled the clutch to see how bad it was. I think I will be able to get a couple more rides out of it but it looks like I'm going to be looking into getting a new clutch soon.

You can call me crazy, but I removed all my lighting, kick stand, DOT legal knobbies, turn signals, and license plate because I'm planning on riding some MX for a while, I can have it all back on and street legal again in a couple hours. Oh, I also put on a Two Brothers slip on but quickly found out the YZ 450F slip on doesn't work with the WR header pipe, bummer, so I've got an FMF Powercore on it's way instead. Darn misinformation websites.:thumbsup:

^^^damn thats a nice tire.

Hopefully I can milk mine until the rainy season. I'd hate to put fresh rubber on the back with the crappy conditions we have right now it'll just chew it up.

Today I just looked at it. Got a day off tomorrow so I'm probably gonna give it the full spa treatment. Bath, detail, chain lube, air filter, oil change

      I just bought a 2005 YZ 125 with a ported cylinder & a decked head. I am a trail rider, I do not race. What are my service intervals for top-end rebuild? What brand do you recommend?

      I am selling my California Plated YZ426F. This bike is very rare because there are not many CA plated YZ426F's and it is in great condition. The bike has been garaged and well maintained. The bike was just serviced and completely gone through. White Brothers Exhaust/spark arrester, Pro Taper handle bars, steering stabilizer.

      New kickstand, new graphics, new fenders, new LED headlight and turn signals. Front and rear shocks have been serviced by ESP. The bike starts right up and runs well. I have a desert tank, paddle tire, stator, turn signals and other original parts I will include with this purchase. Title in hand. Best way to reach me is by email. Second best way is by text. $3400 OBO

      Well guys, I officially pulled the trigger!!!! I have been looking for a bike non stop on craigslist for about a year now....I just CANT justify spending 7k on a brand new machine. About 3 months ago I bought a project bike for 500 bucks and realized it was gonna cost way more to fix it than the bake was worth...it was a 2001 Yz125.....so I resold it, didn't lose any money on it, and kept looking....Well  last week, I FOUND A GEM THAT I JUST COULDN'T PASS UP!!!!Went and picked this puppy up today for 3,500.00 bucks. 2015 Yz125. Dad bought it for his kid 2 years ago, who rode it for 6 months around his neighborhood, broke his wrist, and then never touched it again. Has about 40-50 hours on it I was told. What do you guys think??????
