  1. I think they will have too, things are finally looking up for us dual sport riders. I like my 2012 KTM EXC500 but it's nice to have other options.
  2. Well I think I know what my next bike is going to be. I can't believe Honda has finally done this, I've been telling this to the dealers forever. Hopefully Yamaha does the same with there current WR450 and offer it in a street legal package.
  3. WOW! Finally a street legal 450 from Honda, so pumped! Hopefully Yamaha and Suzuki follow suit.
  4. Here are a few pics, hard to get a good shot thou to show it. Dont mind the wear marks on the head tube, they are from previous owner.
  5. I will try to get some pics for you. My factory bulb was that large round BA20B and I think that's different then your 2014. I did get the new light installed and the kit came with two small spacers for the upper light housing where it screws to the mask, this pushes the light housing out just a little to allow for space between the back of the bulb and the head tube. I had a bit of adjustment left on the bottom so I moved it to coincide with the spacers but I have not checked for actual alignment yet nor have I a got a chance to try it at night. I will say thou that just looking at it in the day light it is super bright!
  6. Update: New thermo switch that i posted the link too worked, fan no longer turns on when you turn the key to "on" with a cold engine. I let the bike idle up to temperature and the fan kicked on. I held a bottle just under the old switch to catch the coolant as i turned it out, only lost a little bit as i threaded in the new switch and I just poured the coolant back in the rad. Next up is to install my new headlight... https://www.cyclopsadventuresports.com/KTMHusky-BA20D-LED-Headlight-Bulb_p_175.html
  7. Are these the sensors you are talking about? These are listed for the 1984 318i https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/bmw,1984,318i,1.8l+l4,1011227,electrical-switch+&+relay,radiator+fan+switch,4312 And one other question, can I remove the the sensor without loosing coolant or is it going to start pouring out as I start turning it out?
  8. Thanks for the replies.
  9. I think my thermo switch just took a crap. My bike has been sitting in the basement for a couple days so the engine is cold. I turned the key on without starting the bike and my fan came on and will not stop running, I cycled the key a few times and get the same result. I pulled back the rubber boot on the thermo switch and disconnected one of the leads to the switch to stop the fan, I reconnected it and the fan starts again right away. Would it be safe to say I need a new thermo switch? Looks like the OEM switch is $27.49 USD online. Thanks
  10. Did the 07's still come with the throttle limited to 1/4 or 1/2 turn, and did they also have the grey wire mod option? It's been a long time since I had my 06 WR450 but I remember doing those two things, not sure if the 250's came like that.
  11. Supercross

    Was sad to see James go down, I thought he had this one for sure! At least he got back on it and finished the race. He's gone down less then RV this year.
