    Love the bike. Hate the clutch

    I would. Be a regular guy and tell them you had some personal problems and only rode it a couple times and please help me out. Be a nice guy and if they want your future business they will step up. If not, go to the area rep. Just remember, be good about it and they will probably help you out.
  2. Excuse my ignorance, but don't the aftermarket yz side panels that have the grab hole fit the wr?

    Sent you a private mssg and posted a response on your other "Texas relative" thread.
  5. The question was asked on this forum when the 450 was a twinkle in Yamaha's eye and the overwhelming response was to let the big bores stick together.
  6. I have a street legal in Arizona WR-426 with 330 total miles on it for sale. I live in Phoenix, an easy drive from LA for a like new bike. It is all original except Zip TY Racing mag drain plug, rad guards, Works Connection frame guards, skid plate, hydraulic master cylinder brake switch.

    Getting Plates for a WR450

    How about the AZ connection with a mailbox at Mail Boxes Etc (or whatever their new name is)? Dunno if it will work but I have heard of people that use a PO Box for their drivers license address just so photo radar tickets have no where to go they can't beat. Then transfer the bike in. Mark
  8. The swap motors or drill and tap has the most merit. You gotta ask yourself where is the heat going to go if you weld. The heat treat will really be messed up at the minimum. Always gotta ask what are the consequences / cost of it failing and how much will it wreck if it lets go. The collateral damage could be a lot more for welding as the FOD potential goes up.

    Radiator Guards - Who likes what?

    Mike Shown is the owner of Flatlands and I must say he is awesome to deal with. Short version - he will take care of you. LOL Mark

    WR300F opinions?

    Who is complaining? The title of the thread was "WR300F OPINIONS?". True, the bike can be modified for a cost of half again what the bike cost. I really like the 250F, I just thought we were having a casual discussion about what would be nice to see.

    Replacement Radiator for 99WR400f

    I have a left radiator in nice condition for sale from my 2002 wr426. I am not sure if the 400 uses the same radiator or not. (I know the yz and wr are different - the wr is slightly bigger than the yz). Any way if you are interested I'll sell it for $100. Call me at 602-770-9934. Mark
  12. Be sure to watch your shelf life on Locktite! I talked with a fellow mechanical engineer geek at Loctite (the phone number is on the package) and he told me how to interpret the date codes. Turns out it is VERY sensitive for full strength to shelf life and I found half the stuff on the stores shelves out of date!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! As I recall they had a alpha numeric code mix and a life of only one year since date of manufacture. I would give them a call for an update on all this. Mark

    '03 WR-250 airbox.

    I am not certain but I believe the Canadian and US air box lids are different. I was looking at buying a 2003 WR250 and the guy was importing them from Canada. He told me the differences between the US and Canadian bikes and he mentioned the Canadian had a less restrictive lid. Mark
