why not just get a YZ?

why not just get a YZ?

:thumbsup: maybe....

WR gear box


more powerfull electrical system

more fly wheel weight

but I don't understand why he moved the CDI.

we all have our reasons for why we do things, I had a YZ before and in CA that's gay! WR is like a YZ with benefits :thumbsup: Took me 6 months to sell mine for a really low price. CDI= YZ fender and better center of gravity :worthy:

You still have electric start and battery?

You still have electric start and battery?

yup, one of the reasons why i got the WR

It looks pretty sweet to me! Nice work.

when i compress the front forks while standing on the bike it squeeks, anyone have an idea why this might be? i just bled my front forks and refilled them with new fork oil

I have an 07 WR450 too with the same squeak! Most the time I notice it is when I am on the brakes. I've tried to hunt it down with no luck! It's very annoying but I have noticed some Hondas with the same squeal so who knows. If you find it please post your findings!

if i have a squeak i just wd-40 anything that moves till the sound goes away then you know what it was and can properly lube it .

sure its not just shock linkage in the back sounding like its the front .

try it with the brakes off .

Yup I just thought same thing thats usually from your rear shock spring.

i just bled my front forks and refilled them with new fork oil

How do you do that?

I had a leaky fork seal a few weeks ago and lost a bit of oil. If I could refill that would be great.

Did you pull the fork apart?

do the newer WRs come with a Ti shock spring like the YZs do?

my 07 came with a steel spring before I replaced with a titanium one

Have you gotten it dirty yet?

havent ridden the bike yet :thumbsup: just came from camp where you not allowed to ride, but the squeek comes from the front left fork i think i didnt use the brakes when bouncing on it, i just bounce on the pegs and it squeeks from that area, i cant possibly see what it might be? new oil and plenty of it? maybe since that fork was really low on fluid it will maybe go away in a few rides?

and i had to pull the works to bleed them, just follow the manual, its pretty simple actually

When I put new fork springs in they squeeked like a bastard on initial feel. But after one ride they were silent again.

how much louder is the 06 muffler after being shortened?
