I had to change the spring rate, so why not get a jazzy one? :snore:

Installed a Factory Connection "Works" metallic shock spring and "Works" preload adjuster. :doh:

The pictures came out crappy. Here are FC's stock images until I can redo them:

Jeez black rims look magic. Great looking bike.

Raced mine to a 14th place finish (of 36) in a 100 KM cross country...80 KM of which were with no front brake! BIG downhills!

Very nice mate! :doh::snore::lol:

Swapped the stock .460 springs to FC .480's. Did them on the bike - which is kinda of a PITA since you have to compress the forks a bit in order to get the cap up far enough to unscrew the jam nut...

Oh, and don't let go of the piston when pulling the spring up because it will drop into the fork tube and will need some fishing out done... :snore:

Installed some white Cycra Stealth DX hand guards. These are the "good" ones with aluminum brackets so they don't dance around and vibrate like strings when you're riding like the composite (yuck!) brackets do. Plus, the brackets are a little thinner so the front brake lever is a lot closer to where it should be located. :doh:

And lastly, set the sag. Used the SagMaster that I picked up from RaceTech. Thanks Michelle! :lol:

Got my new (to me) wr450 back from the shop, finally. Vacuum port leaking from teh AIS removal was apparently causing the over rich pilot ckt condition. Never would have found that so glad I turned Italian (surrendered) on it. Sorry to all those of Italian descent. Truly.

Ya know, Sito, that's just inviting a comment about The Alamo... lol :doh:

I prepaired mine for surgery, first thing was a good clean up.

Well....... it wasn't surgery in the end, probs getting the parts in time.

More like a check up.

I fitted the YZ cams and the rear shock, both worked out well. The cams do make a slight improvement in power, combined with the JD jetting kit. The YZ rear shock is better for hard trail riding than the standard WR.

Its now ready for a 700 k extreme trail ride in a couple of weeks and a 500 k desert race in August.

Replaced the stock springs for race tech 5.8 rear and 48 front rebuilt the forks while i was at it, new seal, bushings etc. Took it out for 20 mile trail ride and tried to figure out why I didn't change out the springs along time ago.:crazy:

Well worth the time and money, what a difference.

Ordered in:

Oil Filter

Seal guard

Washer plates

Overflow coolant Cap

Then started polishing for the weekend.

Bring on the mud!
