I have an 05 WR450. What are the common things that should be done pre-ride and post-ride?
Wheel bearings (side to side play)
Air filter unless you have a specified cleaning interval
Chain slack/condition (sprockets too)
Look for leaks on forks, engine, shock
Check all visible bolts
Clear/open carb/engine vent lines
Make sure suspension works properly - can also be tested on first jump - more fun that way.
Post ride - Besides checking for leaks - I don't do anything until it's clean, then the same as above - therefore it's ready to just ride the next time.
what he said ^^^
lube chain/check coolant
Spokes? I don't tighten them every ride but I do check them
