    Rear wheel collars - pack with grease?

    Thanks for commenting. I get what you mean. Just wanted a second opinion before i get this thing back on the trails. Cheers mate.
  3. Thought id find this in search, but no luck. Just replaced rear wheel bearings on a '08 wr450 and wondering is there any need to pack with grease the back of the wheel collars before putting them back on. Was only going to go with a smear around the alloy bits, but just checking with you guys first. Thanks!

    2011 yz450f half kick then stops

    Others will prob have more of an idea, but just wanted to post that i have a 08 WR450 and mine will sumtimes lock (both kickstarter and electric starter unable to turn over engine) up like you describe when ive stalled out on the trails. Usualy just rocking the bike backwards whilst in gear is enough to 'unlock' it and will fire up right away. From what I read it could be just the engine stopping at TDC and also have seen somewhere that maybe installing a hotcam is a way to fix problem from happening, but its never bothered me too much to look at going down this path.

    CR to TLD??

    Perhaps the TLD guys had already spoken to Chad Reed before they realised that they were not going to be able to afford BT101 aswell this season, hence the BT101/TLD split..? That except was a good read that silver_fox posted Good Luck to CR22 for the 2011 season wherever he ends up! Perhaps may be the last time? Im sure he would love to be able to give it a red hot crack, and claim one more championship. Bonus would be that all the top 5 riders remained injury free and to beat them straight up so he can silence some of the haters. Its shaping up to be a great season!

    What did you do to your WR today?

    Cleaned and Re-oiled my Airfilter ~ B B B B B Boring! Just caught up on the last 15 or so pages of this thread, and i have to say i still really like the look of the Steel Framed WR's. Not sure what it is about them.

    Chain slap

    Had the problem on my '08... Mine seems a lot better now since putting a performance baffle in the end of the pipe... Guess now with less back pressure, the massive engine braking effect the old baffle had was flapping the chain round... Have also heard that if you put some silicone under the swing arm rubber, it lessens the effect of the chain slap, but havent tried this myself.
  15. Nice work! That Harley must have been similar to the one they backflipped not to long back, maybe even built by the same guy! Either way, they both sound awesome!
