What did you do to your WR today?

Put on some Windam Protapers... Hope these will make a difference when standing up, they dont look much higher than the originals like i had hoped when i ordered them. Proabably should have went KX HI for an extra 9mm of height again. Ahwell, ill see how they go on saturday.

Also thought id try some Renthal Dual Compound Half Waffle Grips for good measure!

And finally, i cleaned up the bars a bit, getting rid of the the Horn/Blinker assembly, which free'd up a heap of wires from behind the headlight also.

Loaded mine on the trailer. All ready to leave for Ocotillo Wells.:busted:

Lucky dog...

I gotta spend the weekend clearing downed trees after that freak December 17th so-cal snow storm. It was beautiful but now it's work.

rebuilt the carb and changed fork seal. oh joy!

Put in some Fuel Stabilizer and rode it around the block no riding for right now

If does'nt have snow on it. Its gooey mud:banghead:

I took the WR out for a spin in an abondoned lot (house was condemned then flattened) with my son on his TTR-50.

This is the first time riding the WR for any length of time. It is 80 and sunny today. I had a ton of fun just following my son around. We set up a small square for him to practice looking thru turns instead of in front of the front wheel. He started out going left, then we switched to right. 8 year old attention span isn't like an adult..lol.

I found out I was learning along with him. I SUCK at right hand turns and love going left. The WR is tall too. I'm used to a short sportbike.

I did some braking drills along with him too. Wind out 1st pretty good then stop (we were on wet grass with oak leaves everywhere) while applying both front and rear brake. Found out my son loves skidding the rear tire with the back brake only.

The WR is all corked up but I'm liking how I can put around in 1st and not stall it. Oh, and the magic button sucks. I dunno if the battery needs a charge or what, but I can kick it once and it starts right up.

I ordered all my riding gear last week(helmet, goggles, gloves, jersey, pants, chest protector, boots) so I'll be more comfortable leaving the abandoned lot for some trails soon.

Just bought an '06 yesterday. Stripped it down and checked the valves, carb jets, bearings, and verified the mods done by the previous owner. Everything checked out great. Going to ride it for the first time tomorrow

This is typical. Its NOT the battery.

Search blue wire mod. It'll go from starting in 3 starter motor revolutions to just 1 like it should have from the get go.

Hey Joe - have you done this mod?

Anyways back to what you all care about...after 22 hours on the motor, I stripped it down to check the valves for the first time...all 5 valves were in spec:banana: and to top it all off, Yesterday I put 175 miles on here....:thinking:

When your ready, we will get that taken care of:thumbsup:

Cleaned it up, changed the oil, lubed the chain, checked tire pressures, general going over, proud new owner is coming to pick it up.

Looked at it out in my back shed covered up with the battery tender on her, she looks so sad, but with -30 degrees and 3 feet of snow and no track kit looks like she will be there until June :thinking:

You giving up old blue for the orange side!?!? :thinking::smirk:

Went for a ride in the snow, there's about 3ft of it :thinking:

Learned that snow works really well at getting all the gunk off your rims :smirk:

Sad and true :smirk: . I have had a lot of fun on the old WR, but the KTM is so much easier on my aging body that I had no choice.

I stare at it when I get in and out of my car and wish the desert will dry up soon.
