  1. Sweet, that's what I was thinking but didn't want to be the one who screwed his bike up just because I wanted to go. Thanks for the advise! Heading out now!!!
  2. This may be a stupid question but I'm going to ask it anyway. My buddy and I want to go riding tomorrow but his 05 WR450 battery is dead from letting it sit all winter and now it won't hold a charge. Is it like a car where if the battery is dead then the car won't run at all or can he get by with kick starting it all day? Thanks for the input.
  3. Well it all started out great. My buddy and I rode about 17 miles into the back country and besides moving fallen trees off the trail, it was going great. Then we came to a creek that we had crossed in the past but this year it was flowing a little higher than usual. It was still only 2 1/2 feet at the deepest point but with the current we couldn't see the rocks very well. Long story short, apparently I hit a "boulder" and down I went. I picked the bike up as soon as I could but the damage was already done. We did all the usual....removed spark plug and cranked it over a few times....drained the float bowl...drained the exhaust...and removed the saturated air filter. It took a couple tries but she fired right back up. Unfortunately I didn't have much of a choice but to ride out with a milk shake for oil. I've done the thread search and found where this has been talked about quited a bit. I know to change the oil with the cheapest I can find about 5 times or until its cleaned up but my question is do I have to change the filter every time? I'd really like to get it taken care of today but since I don't have any spare filters and all the shops are closed on Sunday I kinda screwed on that. What do you think?
  4. Me too. Full system of course.
