    Gas Monkey for Supercross 2019??

    Sounds like Ass Monkey is just putting up sponsorship money like they do in other motorsports not actually running a team.

    04 450 muffler

    Nope. Entire exhaust is stock with the exception of the silencer insert. I did go to a header pipe from a WFZ450 quad only because it's stainless and more durable than the stock titanium.

    All New 2019 Yamaha WR450F Announced

    I bought the bike new and on my 3rd battery and even when new the batteries didn't have much capacity for more than a couple tries at cranking it over. It's been upgraded to to a Shorai lithium battery so I don't have the issue anymore.

    Has Yamaha addressed the battery capacity? My 04 WR if it didn't want to start within 2-3 tries you're kicking it due to the battery being ran down too far. I know going to a lithium battery addresses this.

    The "Fat Hippo" utility bike build

    I love this build.

    Major issues with 05 WR450F

    Check the coil out as well. There's a test procedure in the Yamaha manual for it.

    DRZ400 Headlight upgrade?

    I'll second the Cyclops bulbs. I have them in both my WR450F and my FZ1.

    Handlebars for woods riding

    First question should be is she comfortable with the ones on the bike? If they aren't then you need to figure out why.
  9. I have a pair of the Cyclops 3800 bulbs in my FZ1 and love them. I can actually see something at night now. I have one in my WR450 but haven't had it out since installing it.

    XR250R Enduro Project Using the Tusk Kit

    I know this is an old thread but great info on installing a D/S kit on an XR.

    04 450 muffler

    Looking to swap out my stock muffler for an aftermarket piece. I'm looking for one that is as quiet or quieter than the stock with a GYRT insert and much lighter in weight and doesn't cost a fortune.
  12. In the dirt I want as quiet as possible without choking up the bike. On the street I want a little sound but no where near obnoxious. I believe paying attention and staying out of blind spots on the street is much more effective than loud exhaust. I find by the time I hear a bike it would already be to late.

    I really want one of these in addition to my current bike. Having been in the r/c car hobby and seeing what is possible with batteries, motors and speed controls I'm curious to see what's coming. It would be really cool to be able to adjust the speed control through a smart phone app.

    Help with standing

    I tend to push forward with my legs and feet while leaning forward over the bars.
  15. I keep mine until they catastrophically fail, get wrecked, not worth fixing or start nickel and diming me. My current rig is a 2002 Silverado K2500HD with about 205K miles on the 6.0 and still running strong. Right now it needs the tow haul switch repaired, mirror switch replaced and the a/c recharged. In the past it's had the auto headlight switch replaced, 2 fuel pumps( the first replacement was a cheapo Chinese pump the the sending unit failed) and a washer pump. I'm on my 3rd set of tires and still on the original brakes which will need replacing soon.
