    '00WR I Can't get the pig to Idle

    I am just curious why, if his bike ran fine before, the problem now would all of the sudden be the jetting??? I run the same configuration he has and have had it like that for a while with no jetting problems. Just curious if anyone else has an opinion. Could this be a symptom of a bad throttle barrel? thanx

    Knee pads saved me

    BFE of course! I always seem to be there. Hind sight being 20-20, the next time I see the ground coming up fast, I won't be so quick to catch it with my face. Ouch. later-:-)

    Knee pads saved me

    Today I crashed pretty hard (again). The people that know me are saying "So what's new". Went down on my right side, smashed my head into the ground and slid for what seemed an eternity. When I finally got up, my face was bleeding, my pants were ripped up on the right knee, but the only pain I had was my face. When I got home and stripped down, I discovered my right $12.00 Thor knee pad was cracked in half and scratched all to hell. Looking at my pants and the pad, had I not had the pad, I would be in serious trouble (with my wife). Knee pads are a good thing.

    Sand Paddle

    I have a '00 WR 400 that I rode with stock rear tire at Glamis, I got out of the parking lot just fine. My buddy rode with me on a '00 xr650r with a stock rear tire that got out of the parking lot just fine. As a matter of fact, we got all over Glamis just fine. Perhaps Amador is a little obsessive about "Glamis sand". We had a blast for three days on stock tires in the "Glamis sand". We have since put paddles on both bikes and have ridden Glamis, Dumont, Ocotillo, Oloncha etc. My point is, RIDE THE BIKE YOU HAVE AND HAVE FUN. Don't base YOUR experience on the opinion of another. Had I listened to a person like Amador, I would be 34 years old, saying "I wonder what my bike would be like in the sand?". ------------------ It's your world, I just play in it! 2000 WR400, WB E-Series w/7 discs, stock header, Thumper bar risers, GUTS Racing seat, Cut Grey Wire, WR timing, Standard mods.

    setting sag

    A long screwdriver and a hammer to loosen the lock nut, then turned the spring by hand. Reached in fromt he right rear (moved the mud flap out of the way). Make sure you mark the tightning nut with a marker or something so you can count the revolutions. Not too sure about 90-100mm. Does that figure to around 3 3/4 inches? Thats what I set mine to. Once the spring is tighter, you need to decreas your compression dampner and increase your rebound a few clicks.

  6. WD40 and a rag. Give the chain a wipedown after you spray it. Keeps it clean during the ride. Spray your chain AFTER each ride instead of before. This will keep rust and gunk out of the chain. later Wayen ------------------ It's your world, I just play in it! 2000 WR400, WB E-Series w/7 discs, stock header, Thumper bar risers, GUTS Racing seat, Cut Grey Wire, WR timing, Standard mods.

    we need a live chat.

    Just a thought. I use AOL IM and think it is great. However, if you open a chat session for AOL IM users, regular AOL users can't participate. They can't join our rooms and we cant join theirs. You can only instant message. I don't know all the ins and outs, so I may be missing something. ICQ is another option. look at www.icq.com. wayne [This message has been edited by BULLDOG (edited October 14, 2001).]

    Press Bike BACK! Bandits on the Lamb!

    Just to let you know: It was the San Bernardino County Auto Theft Task Force (SANCATT) that recovered the bike. Talk about being at the right place at the right time.

    Hey PMAUST

    Recovered from the knee injury (mostly). Went out and purchased some overdue knee pads. Kind of like closing the gate after the cows got out. Rode last weekend for the first "big" ride since the injury. Met up with a buddy of mine, who brought 8 buddies of his from dirtrider.net. It was a good day of riding. 9 different bikes and not a care in the world. (But, man, am I SORE). Hope to get with you soon. The weather is cooling off making for some great conditions. take care Wayne
  10. Some posts that were posted earlier today have dropped off the BB. You run a search on the screen name and it shows the posts. You try to click on them and they "are not found". Hmmm. Time to switch to decaf.

    Q for thumper bar riser users...

    I appreciate the responses. I am 6'2" and really like the added height I got with the risers. You guys that run the highs and risers, is there any difference in the handling of the bike with the bars being sooo high? I feel like the higher I go, I might be changing my ability to turn. Whats your take on this??

    licensing 2000's or 2001's

    CA DMV is getting wise as time goes by. I went down for a replacement (lost the original) and got a green sticker. They sent me a red sticker in the mail and said they made a mistake. If your bike has a C or 3 in the 8th digit of the VIN, stand by. As far as street though, I have no info.

  13. I have been riding with the 1 1/2 in Thumper Bar Risers with stock bars for a while. I want to switch to after market bars like the CR or Jimmy Buttons. My fear is that with the bar risers, the bars will be too high. Do I need to switch to high bars and toss the risers, or is it better to get standard bars with the risers? ------------------ It's your world, I just play in it! 2000 WR400, WB E-Series w/7 discs, stock header, Thumper bar risers, GUTS Racing seat, Cut Grey Wire, WR timing, ABC's.

    Tires

    Sorry about the late response, However, i have to comment on the M22. Crapola!! I bought one because I was budgeted by my wife and have been paying for it ever since. The only good point to the tire is that it is very HARD. It won't wear out as quickly as others. I want the darn thing to wear out fast so I can buy something else. They are terrible in cornering. I have adjusted my air pressure from 9 lbs to 21 lbs and can not dial in the tire. It constantly washes out and is extremely sqirly on fire roads. It works good for climbing, just don't make any turns. In retrospect, the worn out stock tire was better. Can you tell I am venting?? I wish someone would have told me this before I bought. Remember, this is just my vented opinion. ------------------ It's your world, I just play in it! 2000 WR400, WB E-Series w/7 discs, stock header, Thumper bar risers, GUTS Racing seat, Cut Grey Wire, WR timing, ABC's.
  15. I started with 12 then tweaked and tuned mine down to 7. Its much quieter and I get the low end punch I need. Just remember, you will sacrafice something either way you go. You just have to chose your battles. BTW, I cut my gray wire and gained back some top end I lost when I went from 12 to 7. good luck. ------------------ It's your world, I just play in it! 2000 WR400, WB E-Series w/7 discs, stock header, Thumper bar risers, GUTS Racing seat, Cut Grey Wire, WR timing, ABC's.
