    Picked up another 06!

    yeah i was lucky to get it from the team coach. It's a lot of bike for sure. I have other stockish 450f that I mainly ride. It's so trick that I really just like looking and admiring it. I wish I could afford to put it in a trophy case and keep it for display in my house so my buddies could always drool at ;-)

    Nice job. Looking for another? Check this 06 out. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150165691057&ssPageName=ADME:B:EF:US:11
  3. Just installed the zip tie fuel screw. Had the carb off my 05 crf 450r installed the boyesen quickshot and while i had it off decided to change out the fuel screw. I was very very very carefull when I took out the stock fuel screw. When i took it out I got the spring and the washer but no o-ring? So I used a dental tool to probe and found nothing? Since I had the carb off I used small flashlight to look inside and didn't see anything? I then removed the bowl to see if I could get a closer look. Again looked several times and found no o-ring. The directions said that there would be an o-ring. All fuel screws have o-rings right? Is it possible that my bike came without the o-ring in the fuel screw? Is it possible that the o-ring is actually in there but I just can't see it? The new fuel screw seems to respond to turns in and out relative to tuning my bike but &%$#@!? Will the fuel screw still work without the o-ring? Help this is driving me insane!! Thanks in advance!
  4. Have you heard much about the K&N 2 piece drop in filter?
  5. To clarify- How can I get more airflow without the big heavy stock cage. Do you cutout the stock cage for more air? thanks.
  6. This filter was included in my WB Aluminum Pro 2 exhaust purchase for my 05 450R. My question is this. Are you supposed to use the filter over the stock cage or are you supposed to install the filter by itself directly to the box without the cage. Thanks in advance!

  8. Installed the Aluminum Pro and Twin Air filter that was included w/exhaust system. Kept the stock filter cage. Went to the track began with 1 7/8 turns out (stock) on the fuel screw and all stock jetting (168 Main). Long story short the bike felt sleepy and had some hesitation (boggish) off of idle and more so in the mid range. Kept backing out the fuel screw 1/4 turn at a time and would click off some laps come back 1/4 turn out do more laps etc... Bike continued to feel the same until I finally stopped at 2 1/2 turns out. Came back pulled the plug and it looked completely normal. I don't have any other jets so now wanting to get as much info before I start changing jets and clip positions etc... Called WB talked with someone in their tech department and and asked for a recommendation. WB told me to change the main jet to 175 and go up 2-3 on the leak jet and bring the fuel screw back to stock 1 7/8 turns out and keep the needle in the stock position. According to the hype this exhaust is supposed to make the 450R hit a lot harder (more crisp) down low and harder (more crisp) though the mid range relative to the stock setup. At Stock my bike hits very hard down low all the way through the mid range and my expectation/hopes are that I can at least get the same hard hitting feeling from the WB exhaust and maybe a more crisp throttle response in the low and mid range. I'm at 500 ft elevation + or - 100 ft. My average temp is around 60-65F (Winter) and will jump to around 85-90F (Summer) with high humidity. Any info on this subject would be greatly appreciated. I don't have a lot of time to wrench b/c of my job and want to get this thing tuned as quickly as possible. If I can save a lot of time and find out that this exhaust isn't really what it's supposed to be then I'm fine with simply returning to the stock setup but I'm hoping that isn't the case. Thanks in advance! :?:
