    99 wr400 rear wheel?

    Id like to do the same. My bearings slop around in the rear hub & Id like to buy a second hand wheel to replace it, but off what??
  2. Ive pulled apart my rear master cyclinder to clean it out but Im not sure which way the washer that goes onto the end of the threaded push rod goes. It has a resess in the middle of it. Is the hollow side to the piston or to the threaded side. [up or down]

    Hook I have a IT 490 for the dunes & a WR400 for everything else. Don't go too small on the rear sprocket. Also make shore that the bike is running a little rich, the sand makes them run very hot. I put a 10mm hole in the top of my piston because it was a little lean. See you out there.

Other wise the bike just sits there screaming it's head off & not going anywhere. Top gear, wide open, down near the water with a 90FT roost spraying out the back.

    road trips- missing.

    My wr400-99 runs great in the bush but then I ride it on the road for 10 minute or more it developes a miss. But when I get back into the bush it clears up & disapears. The jetting is fabulous for the bush but i think that it might be too rich for the road. The jetting is 168mj, 200maj, emm# 5, 38pj, 65paj, I am only useing half throttle on the road. Any idears?

    Swingarm Bolt - Help I can't get it out!!!

    I've done 3 of these. It is easy. Get a blow torch & have a low heat setting. Put the torch hard up to the pivot bolt so that the flame goes inside the hollow pivot bolt on the threaded side. You dont want any of the flame excapeing onto the frame. It will only take about 10 to 15 seconds to heat up. It is important not to over heat the bolt because you will melt the seals & bearings . Let it cool down & then start to hit it out. If it doesn't move reheat it again the same way but this time make it slightly hotter. It is a good idear to have some water ready to cool the seals. Let it cool again & try to hit it out again. It should come out easy.

    Arrggh!!! What have I done to my poor bike?

    Tall sidewalls mean no puntchers but it feels like the tyre squiggles while going around fast smooth corners. But you can aford to use lower tyre presures.
