    WR Moderator Job Announcement

    I'm not going anywhere, just giving the reins to the next generation...SC
  4. Ladies & Gentlemen, Boys & Girls, I have decided to step down as moderator of the venerable WR400/426/450 forum. My family and work obligations have made it near impossible to do the quality job that you all deserve from your moderator. Little league, Cub Scouts and an ever-increasing workload have really taken its toll on my disposable time. I simply can no longer do the position justice and have decided it is time to pass the torch. I was nominated and informally elected a couple of years ago and I've asked the B's and Valerie if we could do something similar. Y'all need to talk amongst yourselves and put up a few well deserving members as nominees. I'll then put it into a poll and we can do it democratic-like. I'm waiting for final approval from the bosses to go this way, but I'm sure we can at least start the process. I want everyone to know that I've had a helluva lot of fun moderating and everyone here, for the most part, has been a pleasure to deal with. I will say the moderating job is a lot more work than one might think. In order to do it properly, you will need thick skin, a good sense of humor, the ability to laugh at yourself, and absolutely no expectation of any kind of reward other than a job well done. Some absolute necessities will be a well developed ability to write and edit, as well as sound judgement when it comes to dealing with the little problems that will arise from time to time. If you have the wisdom of Solomon, you're on the right track. The best part is that you'll have a whole crop of other moderators to bounce ideas off of and seek advice from. If you remove your ego and focus on keeping TT the best damn dirt bike forum on the web, you'll do great. As far as my future with TT is concerned, I'll still be here, but just as a regular member with no super-human abilities (think Superman II after he loses his powers so he can marry Lois Lane, but without the bad haircut). I'm still nursing my back injury but I plan to be turnin' and burnin' by Spring. So, in the immortal words of the Governator...I'll be back!!! ...SC

    Wr dad with sons YZ issues (OK'd by WR Mod)

    It'll stick around for a while if you need some more help. I feel your pain. It took me forever to get the carb on my kid's TTR50 dialed in and he really wanted to ride it. Merry Merry...SC

    It looks like you guys are getting the problem nailed down. I'm gonna let it slide for a few more days, but them I need to merge it over to the 2-stroke area. If you get it all squared away in the next day or two, shoot me a PM. Best of luck...SC

    wr running rough in top gear only?

    Are you running it on the road, or the dirt? Has the temperature dropped in recent days? What was the bike used for by the first owner?...SC

    wr running rough in top gear only?

    Pull the carb, remove the hot start, fuel needle (complete with tiny spring, washer and o-ring), jets and fuel bowl, and clean everything with carb cleaner and compressed air. Make sure your jets are completely unblocked. Prior to putting it back together, consult the jetting database for a good benchmark for the proper jetting based on your alititude and temperature. If you need to alter the jetting, now's the time to do it. With the bike being new, I've seen it many times where a tiny piece of metal, plastec, etc. from the assembly process can plug up a passegeway or jet. Provided your running good gas, this should solve your problem. If it doesn't, let us know...SC
