    06 WR450 overheating

    Okay. The other day, because I hadnt ran my bike for about 3 months, I was running my bike in idle for about 15 minutes. When I came back outside to check my bike, coolant was coming out from one of those tubes underneath the bike and coolant in the coolant tank underneath the rear fender was like boiling or bubbling. about an hour after I shut my bike off I looked at the coolant reservoir and it was empty. Is anything wrong with my bike or is this supposed to happen because my bike was overheating?

    Kill switch issues

    how do you know which wires to connect? can i just splice them and not worry about which wire goes to which? From the harness, I can't tell which one is negative and positive...

    06 WR450 Stock Shock Questions

    Hey guys, I ride a 06 wr450 and was wondering if my suspension is too soft for my size and weight. I am 6'2 and weigh around 200 pounds on with all my gear. Do I need to tighten up my springs to make them more stiff? My front suspension feels a little soft but am not sure since this is my first bike. I have had this bike for about a year and don't really know anything about suspension systems, only know how to ride. Thanks!

    Over Heating Wr450 2005

    Question guys. I have an 06 wr450 and I only h ave about 116 miles on the odometer. Last time I went to go ride I hit my friend with my left radiator. I kept riding and everything felt fine but tonight, after I rode my bike and was parking it in my gaarage, I noticed a little bit of smoke rising from the radiator area. When backing up the bike to reposition it, a little bit of smoke rises into the headlight area and thats how I know that it is kind of smoking. Is it just because the radiator is hot or is my radiator damaged? thanks.
  11. How do you like the long bed? How does it handle and take corners? I like the look of the d-cab offroad package better but it isnt offered with the long bed. I just totaled a access cab with or package and that is why im in the market for a new rig.
  12. Im at the Toyota stealership right now deciding wether to buy a short bed or a long bed. Does anyone have a d-cab short bed th at hauls around two dirt bikes in the back without any problems? Any quick replies would be great as I am going to buy with in an hour. Has anyone ever seen a d-cab short bed haul around two dirt bikes?

    Pricing.. how much did you pay out the door?

    I paid exactly 7,000 with tax, title, and licensing from North Hollywood Yamaha and Honda. They would not go any lower even though I left the dealership. They would not budge

    Kill Switch Dead. Help!

    thanks guys
  15. This weekend a little boy turned in front of me and i dropped my bike going about 25-30. After riding i noticed my kill switch wasn't working anymore. it looks like one of the two-pronged wires is sticking out a bit. when i pull it back i can kind of see the wire. Is this easy to fix? how do i fix it? thanks in advance
