  1. How can you test if the Hot Start is not fully closed? I do think the Hot Start does not "Feel" right when I pull on it.
  2. I have an 04 WR450. I have been having problems with the FCR CARB. The bike will not start unless the choke is out and it will not hold idle when the choke is in. This occurs even if the bike is warm. The hot Start does effect the starting or idling when the choke is in. It does make the bike sound smoother when the choke is out. The bike backfires real bad when the choke is in and not so much when the choke is out. The bike has a new top end rebuild and I did replace the seals and gaskets on the CARB. All of the Carbs jets are clean and. My diagnosis I got some sort of air leak, but I do not know where. Any ideas? Thanks..

  4. Normally I would not buy that bike. It was Yamaha's earliest try at the 4 Stroke water-cooled motor. it has a lot of starting/Carb issues. However, a California Plate is everything. That is what your are paying for. That is why a $1k bike costs $1k more.
  5. Thanks, I saw the Race Tech link before and I thought it was off. This is greast.
  6. I rebuilding a set of 03 CR125 Forks for a friend. They KYB which is a little unusual considering Honda used Showa for the most part. Does anyone have a listing for the Fork Oil Level or amount of oil required? My research shows either 65mm or 100mm from the top of tube. I would like to more certain. A snap of the Honda Manual would be nice. Thanks in advance
  7. I am now in the process of rebuilding my WR450. The head is at the shop getting the valve guides replaced and the valves seated. I am going to buy the aftermarket piston and cylinder. There are three choices. Standard, High Compression, or Big Bore. I am leaning towards the Standard, because I am not big on changing specs on bikes. However, if there is a convincing reason to go a different direction, I am all ears.
  8. Yeah, I kinda knew the answer. I just needed someone else to say it.
  9. I was having a hard time starting my WR450 and I decided to check the valves. The Exhast were in specs. However, all three intakes were so tight I could not even get a .03mm/.001in feeler gage under them. I did the math and I would need a 1.20mm shim to get them in tolerane. A 1.20 is the thinnest shim made. Do you think my intake valves are stretched too much? Over the years I have had to put thinner shims on the intake side. I am starting to think I need to do a complete rebuild on the bike, even though I have no issues with the motor. It has a LOT of miles/hours on it. It still has the original piston in it. Or should I replace the shims for another season and wait......?
  10. Just put a set on my old 04' WR450 with rims that are slightly bent. Rode over 150 miles in the rocky Mojave Desert without an issue. 11psi in the front and 10 psi in the rear. Great traction and I not had a flat or any issues. Rode over 1000 miles on my 13' KTM 500EXC on two set of tires with no issues. Highly recommended.
  11. There should be a marking on the Barrel above the intake. You can go a size up, but not a size down.....
  12. Second set of tires with Tubliss on my KTM 500EXC. No issues. Follow directions getting them off and on. Works great. Just rode a 100 mile trip in San Bernadino Mountains. Worked great with my New Motoz "Tractionator" Rear Tire. Putting Tubliss on my WR450 next. I am a believer....
  13. Radio Shack??? Good luck with that since they are out of business...... What type of bike are you talking about? What is the issue?
