  1. i broke my rear fender too every now and then one pops up on ebay, keep an eye out.... got impatient and went the yz route myself.
  2. now the bike attracts chicks like you wouldn't believe too.
  3. i already got the yamaha factory racing hello kitty package. its all about vigilance and intimidation.
  4. I'm on there now too... count is up to 154
  5. haha, my guess is money, mechanical aptitude and a friend at a powder coating shop. bike looks absolutely awesome!
  6. anyone know if the stabilizers are interchangable from 426 to 450? I can likely get my uncle's scotts setup in the spring when he sells his '02 426. My bike is an '03... any info would be greatly appreciated and might save me a few hundred dollars.
  7. I've never had a problem biking, but I use bodyglide on the nips when I run... works great
  8. haha, that damn logical metric system. what were they thinking
  9. you have to make sure you get it past TDC before you kick it. slowly kick it over until just after the "hard spot" on the engine's revolution... then give it a mighty kick and you'll be fine without kickback.
  10. yeah, should be closer to 12.5V... sounds like it is just flat
  11. my '03 450's e-start is really picky that i have to be in nuetral, otherwise no go. are you trying to start in gear?
  12. i was thinking about this too, and i think the easiest solution would be to put a keyed switch in series with the existing ignition button. keeping the existing wiring in-tact.
  13. cheers, i'm from summerland, got a wr450 about a month ago but i haven't gotten to ride as much as i would like to yet. i'm looking for a little truck so i don't have to rip up the road when nobody's looking anymore
  14. I happen to be a fan of the bandit 600, I'm 6'4" and it's the most comfortable "sporty" bike i've sat on yet. It was actually a toss up for me between buying my wr450 and a bandit I was looking at. Interested to hear what you think about it.
