  1. Model (YZ or WR 250F): 2006 wr250f Timing (WR-YZ): wr Main jet: 175 Pilot Jet: 40 Fuel screw (turns out): 1 3/4 Needle model/Clip position: JD, Red needle,3rd clip Airbox lid (on or off): holes cut, snorkel removed Pipe: White Bros E2 Altitude where you ride: 2000-4500 ft Temperature where you ride: 15-35 cel (60-90 Fer) Other mods: ACV,AIS removed, grey wire, YZ throttle stop, twin air filter, 40 leak Jet. Clutch mod(hub drilled, and two rings-garbage, oddly the clutch works PERFECT-and no sign of excess wear-as time goes I'll keep this bit updated) Degree of satisfaction: Very. Thanks for all the advice, great thread. May try one or both, leaner main jet, and one fatter pilot. The bike rips, but just can't help but to try it to see if its better. The GF is all smiles, and that is just so important!!
  2. Keep the videos coming, the movie star
  3. Notice the trend here. I live in little town BC and don't think for second that noise restrictions won't affect you. I live in a town where all of the riding areas are in Valleys outside of town which obviously restricts sound polution. Do you think the Greenie cared when he went for a walk off the beaten path with his poodle in our public riding area, his mind set wasn't that of yours. And now yes, in little town BC our counsel is now looking at inovative ways to initiate community based programs to reduce our sports affect on the local community because of that guys complaint. Beautiful As far as your question for a loud, pipe, go with a WB, that way if you figure out what people are talking about, and feel compelled to support them, and riders in their communities and mine, you can just put a quiet tip in. Honestly, just think about it. You might live in a town without restrictions, but it could as others have said start an issue with a passer thru tourist, which may not affect you, but they'll take it home to their town and it will affect the riders there. only my two cents, and not looking to start anything, just hoping to keep riding.
  4. Just finished doing this mod on my GF's 2006 WR250F. A thing of beauty, now that is how a clutch should work. I got in touch with as many "trusted" shops as I could to find out about this mod, not one of them thought it didn't make total sense afer looking at the shop manual. At my local shop we checked every after market clutch kit, not one that we found had these two small rings. Every shop said do it, and get back to us with the results. Well its done. Every bad thing about this clutch is now gone. I warmed the clutch up first, and then kicked it into gear, no jump, and no creeping forward. Shifting gears, just slick! thanks alot for your help Polar_Bus,
  5. Bump, I'm also looking at doing this mod, Polar_Bus howz it all going with your bike?? Would you recommend drilling the hub if you are removing the cushion spring and seat plate. We're trying to jet this bike, but if I can't come to a stop and simply let the bike iddle it just makes it a huge :applause: Fixing the clutch is a huge priority right now. My GF is brand new to riding, and this clutch issue is a terrible way to learn to ride her bike. Even with the extra power she prefers to practice on my KTM450. Her's is an '06 WR250F. Thanks alot for any advice
  6. thanks for the replies, We're definitely looking for a quiet pipe. Our community is holding a counsel meeting to help come up with an initiative to reduce the impact the off road community has on the rest of the area. Its all dealing with the sound levels emitted from our bikes. I'll miss hearing that dirt bike note, but it’s a reality. Again thanks for the your help
  7. I've read alot of posts saying that I can swap out my GF stock exhaust with a stock YZ250f, but from what years. I would have thought the alluminum frame on the '06 YZ changed the fit, bend, and bolt pattern for the '06 WR. So do I go with an '05 pipe When I'm looking through online web sites to find a new after market exhaust, can I just go with one that says it fits an '06 YZ250F, or if not '06 from what year? My dealer had no idea about either fitting a stock YZ pipe or after market pipe on her WR I think for right now she wants to go with a YZ pipe while she's learing, and then upgrade later to something like a WB I stole her from the other side, sold her quad, and now she's never looked back! thanks for your help
  8. Please help, I'm lost without you guys I just moved this thread from the WR250 forum, and erased the part about the clutch issues, I'm going to try a set of "06 yz clutch springs for a fix.
  9. So it seems that the metal plug goes near the header and is secured with the hose clamp. according to the GYTR instruction, you have to make sure the exhaust fiiting is retightened after the bike reaches normal operating temperature and cooled The small rubber cap goes behind that on the same side and is secured with ???, Use the original clamp used to attach the small hose to that same fitting the other smaller rubber cap goes on the other side of the bike and is secured with the zip tie. You can also use a silicon product to secure the cap on the air box. and that is it?? And re jet your bike to suit your other mods, and area. Good luck
  10. Scroll down about half way on the above site, it'll be a close-up colour photo of the before and after of the kit you are using. It shows the before, the AIS stuff removed and the after photo. You can see where the smaller vacuum hose went on the right side, he's just capped it with the small plug, and on the exhaust side (near your header pipe) he's used the alluminum plug and hose clamp. Use the larger rubber plug on the left side where you removed the large hose from your air box boot. You'll have to take off your seat to get better access, Sorry I used the TT kit, I hope that helps
  11. Check out this site, it has all the photos you need. http://www.southbayriders.com/forums/showthread.php?t=10730&page=2 To get the stainless portion of the AIS system out (exhaust side), use a 3/8 tap, and then thread in a 3/8 threaded rod and use it like a slide hammer. Its a total to get out if you do it any other way. I just finished the install with the help of this forum! It looks way clean now with all that AIS crap gone, ow and make sure to follow TT's last bit of instructions, throw the AIS crap out and ride!
  12. My GF just got a new 2006 WR250F, and we’ve done all the free mods thanks to all the advice on this site , but just can’t get this bike dialed in Our current settings are Model (YZ or WR 250F): 2006 WR250F Timing (WR-YZ): WR Main jet: 178 Pilot Jet: 40, stock Fuel screw (turns out): 3/4 (Zip-Ty Racing) Needle model/Clip position: JD blue, 4th Airbox lid (on or off): Snorkel removed, holes cut Pipe: Stock with exhaust baffle removed Altitude where you ride: base elevation 1500’ Temperature where you ride: 60 – 90 (15-30 Celsius) , humidity 35% Other mods: ACV, AIS, grey wire, throttle stop cut, twin air filter, TPS unplugge (??),rubbder O-ring over the accelerator pump screw/linkage as per JD(?? I don't know what the TPS or the o-ring mod do ) I looked through the jetting forum, and these settings seemed most appropriate. I was thinking of switching to a 175 main jet, and we have a 40 Leak jet on order. The bike has almost no bog any more when you wack the throttle in neutral, but the power throughout seems,, not so good. After about a fifteen minute ride to our riding area we checked the bike out. 0-1/4 throttle seems ok if you just burp it to pop up the front tire, but if you actually accelerate and ride it, there is a real lull in bottom end power, and there is no real pull through the mid to full throttle. The bike seems to stumble and then surge on harder acceleration from an almost closed throttle position. On flat straight section at steady half throttle the bike stumbles and surges. On Deceleration ,we also get zero popping or sputtering. Any and all suggestions, thanks for your help

    Thanks, We decided to go with the Razr 2's, they look way cool, and all the reports seemed to be good. We're going to try the ITP next, and compare. We'll keep you posted!! Are the rear tires directional on the Razr 2's? It looks like the fronts are!? It's funny everytime I mention this stuff is for my wife, guys are always like your wife rides a 700?!? The crazy thing is she rides it hard, and every where we go,, she gets that "its a chick look". She loves it!! If she's not at the office, or the beach playing with the boys, she's on her raptor!! thanks for all of your advice:thumbsup:

    I picked up a 2007 Raptor 700 for my wife, and we need to throw a new set of tires on it. What do you guys suggest?? I want want a puncture resistant tire, and she wants really good hook up. She rides primarily trails with loose dirt, some rocky areas, and some downed trees up here in Summerland BC, sometimes the trails are all rock. She kept getting flats on her rear tire with the stockers. We’ve narrowed it down to the ITP Holeshot XCR or the MAXXIS Razr. I’ll be honest though, that’s based on looks, and what I’ve read here from guys riding sand and track. She’s only 5’6” and 110 lbs, but she just rips on that beast! Sorry different topic!! Which would you go with, I’m starting to hate pushing that beast out with flat tires!! Also posted in Yamaha, and Honda ATV forums
