  1. I just traded my sons TTR125L this weekend. Great bike, but doesn't have the power or suspension for a 12 year trying to keep up with the big boys though. I did order an RK 428 116Link O-ring chain that will fit the TTR125 (Non L version). I would make a heck of a deal on for you or someone. The manual covers both bikes and I was in a hurry and ordered the wrong chain. It was a special order and couldn't send it back. The TTR125L has bigger wheels.

    YZ150F

    Anyone know if Yamaha is going to bring out the rumored YZ150F this year? My son is 12 years old, 85 lbs and riding a 01 TTR125L. He loves the bike, but is getting too good for it, needs more power and a better suspension. He is too small for the YZ250F. I am contiplating putting him on the new 02 YZ85, but would rather stay with a thumper. I would wait for 03 YZ150F if there was hope of one being built. Any suggestions???

    Sand Paddle

    Never riden at Glamis, but we go to Little Sahara state park in Oklahoma and have a blast on 2 wheels. I ride a 98 WR400 and have a blast in the sand. By reading the previous replies to your post the sand is different in Glamis. I don't know how our sand compares to yours, but you don't need a paddle tire to have fun in the midwest. I use a paddle tire only to get a little edge. I have owned a many XR600s and don't see any reason you won't have a blast and always be waiting on your buddies on 4 wheels like I do. One suggestion - night riding in the dunes is more fun on 4 wheels. Why Ping when you can thump!!
  4. Whew!!, Thought I was loosing my mind or something. Thanks for the help and yes I have already moved my clip to the #2 position. Kansas Settings: Main 170 Pilot 45 Clip #4 Fuel Screw = 2 turns out Colorado Settings tring to achieve. Main 162 Pilot 42 Clip #2 Fule Screw = 1 3/4 turn out. Thanks a lot!!
  5. Just came back from riding in the mountains of Colorado (Rampart Range). Had a great time, but can't get any low end power out of my bike. From the posting on this site about altitude jetting I am needing to drop to a 42 pilot jet, but I have spoken to three dealers and they give me a standard Keihn Pilot jet and my WR takes some strange jet. The pilot jet I pulled out is a 45 and looks more like a Mukuni (sp?) than a Keihn. What's up with this? Am I loosing my mind? Is this a rare jet? Why am I having so much trouble getting the correct jet? I would appreciate any help. I leave tomorrow for Colorado (Gunnison area)and desperatly need to get my jetting correct.

    You gotta love Colorado

    I here what you are saying. Just a Kansas boy here that had planned on a father son ride at Rampart this weekend. Traveled 5 hours to see a bunch of the white stuff. Did manage to spend Saturday Afternoon at Fay Meyers. Is that place cool or what. Maybe I'm just used to our small bike shops in Kansas that sell more lawnmowers than bikes. Looking forward to many rides in Colorado again this year. Should be almost 20 years at Rampart for me. Started when I was about twelve or thirteen.
  7. Help! Going riding at Rampart Motorcycle Range in Colorado for the first time on my Stock 98 WR400 and asking for Jetting tips. For those of you not familiar with this area the altitude is around 7,000 to 9,000 feet. I purchased this bike used this winter and my book has the following settings written in by hand from the previous owner (Unkown). Main 162 Pilot 40 Needle 2nd position They seem kinda lean to me, what are everyone's thoughts? I don't want to check my plug anymore than I have to.

    Head pipe for sale???

    I'm looking for a good used head pipe. I was riding last weekend, crashed and did a number on my head pipe. The good news is that it's not in the way of my oil filter anymore. Bad news, unlike most of you my wife will kill me if I go out and spend $300-$600 on an exhaust system. Just looking for a stock or aftermarket head pipe for a 98 WR400. If I can't find a good used one I am looking at a White bros "High Boy". I am hoping it will match up with my stock exhaust. Surely one of you that has upgraded would selll you stock pipe? Doug

    Water works?

    I recently purchased a 98 WR400 and love it. When I first start my bike in the cold weather after settting for a week I will get a little antifreeze dripping from the pinhole on my water pump. I went to my dealer and was going to get a new water pump seal, but he said if my bike had been setting for a while that this would happen becasue the seals get dry or something. Should I go ahead and replace the water pump seal anyways or is my dealer correct? This doesn't happen all of the time just when it is cold out (30 degrees or so). Please help. Doug

Seems as if it only does it when it is cold out (30 degrees or so), but I can't verify that. Please help. Doug
