What did you do to your WR today?

4,514 posts in this topic

spent hours lashing it to the trailer and took it for a spin. All was smooth and happy till i went over a speed bump. I looked in the rear view mirror and my eyes jumped out of my head big time, proper black eyes time lol. The bike was leaning over :p and I had to pull over to correct the lashing. GREAT day though. Just trailering the bike was immense fun. Also re-fitted the handguards and turned the engine over. Im going to book some lessons and probably an apointment to see my Dr for when i come off lol. It be sunny, it be beer time. peace.

I put my 99WR400 supermoto back together today. I painted the frame, re- greased the swing arm and gave it a good cleaning. Im having a problem with the front brake. I cant get the air out of the line. It just seems to keep bubbling. Also the rear wheel spins free when the axle is not tight but when I tighten the axle it gets hard to spin. Any ideas?

You prob need to replace that long spacer in the hub between the bearings. :p

I went riding with my son at a local riding spot. We hit some packed sand, soft sand, hard packed clay, dirt and a water crossing. My son had a blast and got some air on a couple of jumps. He laid it down alot in the soft sand but he learned to keep his balance a little better and to look through turns instead of looking at his front wheel. Another kid had a TTR-50 too, so they played follow the leader on a small loop someone set up.

The area we rode has a hare scramble race there every year so there are tons of trails. I got to hit some of them on the WR without my son in tow. I love the WR and it's still all stock. 2nd gear most everywhere...it's almost like having and automatic...lol.

I threw my son on the WR with me and climbed some steep hills he couldn't go up on his 50. He loved it.

I just need to get the suspension setup for my 215lbs and I'll be good.

Is that an 08 YZ exhaust? If yes, what do you do about a sparky?

      Hey guys,
      Im looking to buy a new Yamaha 2 stroke within the next couple weeks but i cant decide whether i would be happier with the 2018 yz 250 or the 2018 yz250x. Heres my riding background. Ive been riding for 15 years, I raced in the A class for 5 years until money got tight and i gave up racing all together. Since i then I realized how much fun single track riding is and just free riding with the buddies. I still occasionally ride tracks but about 80% of my riding is trails. I live in Michigan and if you have ever ridden in Michigan then you know the trails can get as rough as a motocross track. My local trails have sand whoops that i would compare to
      REDD-BUUUDDDS sand whoops.
      Ive never owned a "trail" bike ive always taken my race bikes and made them into "trail" bikes. My last bike being a Yz125. 
      That being said i know all the mechanical and technical differences between the 2 bikes. Im a bit worried that the 250x just wont have the racey feel when im riding. Im also worried then when i do take it to the track the suspension will be a bit soft and the mellow hitting powerband will not allow me to seat bounce the big whoops. But now the standard yz250 might not have enough low end to help me skate through wet black slick dirt and the suspension might be a little to "non responsive" per say in studder bumps. Can you guys give me any sort of guidance. 
      If you would like to check out my riding style on YouTube check out : "Yz125 2 stroke Shredding Michigan Enduro Trails."
      Thanks Guys

      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
