    Stripped Shroud/tank bolts

    Wow!! What a great solution. Same thing happened to me. Where is the best place to get new shrouds? I went to Acerbis online and couldn't find them for the 05 wr450. Thanks
  3. I'm back on a dirt bike after almost 20 years. I recently bought an 05 WR450 that is a complete blast!! But after joining TT and reading everbody else's posts, it seems that the stock jetting needs to be changed. I've done all the free mods except the grey wire and I ride in the Mojave desert (2000/2500+ ft) with current temps in the high 90's to low 100's. I know next to nothing about this carb/jetting stuff so any guidance would be appreciated, this is my first 4 stroke and my first bike after a long time off. The bike seems to run great, a little popping on the decel. But then again, I can't really say how good or how bad it's doing because I have nothing to compare it to. Thanks in advance

    Did I get ripped off??

    I have an 05 wr450 with about 120 miles of desert riding and my right side frame is barely scuffed. Probably cuz' I haven't had it in the mud yet. It wouldn't have been much farther for you to go to John Burr in Fontana, I'm real happy with the deal they gave me.
