    Excess Noise??

    Did you install the foam between the engine and skid plate? If not it will echo a lot of noise. Good choice in skid plates.

    Should I sell while I'm ahead?

    I think you should keep it. You know the bike and love it should last a long time. I would just change the oil all the time and keep an eye on it. Sounds like you have had a lot of fun on it. Ride on

    side cover help request

    I would check into a billet aluminum company in your area take them your cover and have them make you one then take it to a anodizing shop in your area and have them anodize it. you will have a one of a kind side plate that you can have etched or engraved with anything and all under 100.00 easy just a thought

    hrs of use for wr400

    Well you are not dealing with a two stroke that needs to be rebuilt every year. I have the same bike and every year at winter time it is time for the normal winterizing and greasing and checking everything over. I have removed the cylinder every year and looks great walls in the cylinder look great. Use good oil and always clean the filter. If everyone passed on a bike that has never had engine work 98% of all bikes out there would not be bought. I would plan on buying some parts and doing a once over it depends on how the guy rode also and if he just crashed on the thing all the time. I know several people that I ride with the all have 4 strokes and one of them on a new 450wr sheared his woodruff key ........brand new bike the dealer did fix it for him but he was not to happy that day walking back to the truck it happens to the best new or old. Just my opinion I could be biased also since I have the same bike.

    Odo drive eliminators

    I agree better than stock it is not like people get to see to much of it as you are mobbing down a trail but it looks nice and has worked well wish I would have thought of it kind of thing. keep the wheels down!

    Odo drive eliminators

    Not that the stock one keeps dust out any better. The Barnum is an aftermarket spacer using your factory spacer seal no big deal to install. I just went to their web site and contacted them via phone and told them what color and sent the money has worked fine. Better than that ugly stock one Grif 99WR400

    Who uses Ready Racing Pre oiled filters and do you like them?

    I have used the ready filter and it worked well they were as described installed quick after a second of waiting for it to bounce back after being vacuumed packed oiled perfect no problems that I could see I used them one time in the desert and once in Steck park sand dunes my only concern was where it met the airbox I did the old trick with grease and then after about 10 minutes of riding I checked the grease line to see if anything had pass through I also put a small amount of grease I mean a small amount in right at the base of the intake boot on the inside of the airbox to see if anything went through the filter it would have stuck to the oil on the inside of the boot and it was clean for the first use of the product it ran fine, worked well and was very simple to install but I still sometimes go back to the regular twin air filter just for craps and giggles used to it after all these years and it is just me but I sometimes enjoyed cleaning the air filter

    Do you see suspended pieces of metal in your oil?

    small pieces of aluminum is normal new engine parts and clutches and normal engine break in it is good that you changed the oil quickly after the first 100 miles or so now just stay on your normal maintenance and you should be fine same on mine after first couple miles no worries just maintain
