    Rejet it with JD Jetting, remove AIS, cut the gray wire, take out the snorkel, add some protection and you got an awesome bike! Love her!

    Overall great bike, wish it had a little more snap in the bottom end but other than that lots of power.
  3. I've been thinking about putting new graphics on my Yamaha WR250F, and DeCal MX has a pretty cool custom graphics maker. As the title suggests, I'm looking for opinions on the designs I've made up, since I just can't seem to pick between them! Also, if you want, you can design a set for me here (woo! you can design graphics for some random guy you'll never meet! ) If you do, the plastics are stock on the bike, so straying too far from them might look weird! I'll post pics after I get them on, though it could be a while. Designs:

    Installing Graphics

    I'm sure there are a million ways to install graphics, but this is what has worked for me. Tools/Supplies Needed - Windex or other alcohol based window cleaner (Windex is the best) - Simple Green or other light degreaser - A few clean shop towels - A plastic card, such as a credit card - Hair Dryer (don't tell your wife) Prepping the Plastic The key here is clean, clean clean. If the plastic is new or close to new, spray on a little degreaser and wipe it dry with a towel. If the plastic has deeper scratches with embedded dirt, clean with degreaser and a soft bristle brush. Installing the graphics Some install graphics on the bike, some off. I think it's a matter of personal preference. However, it also depends upon what kind of graphics you're installing. For example, if you're installing a tank/shroud & seat cover kit, where the graphics from the tank/shrouds continue on into the seat, everything needs to line up properly to look good and installing on the bike makes this much, much easier. For these kits, install the seat cover first, then orient the graphics to line up with it. Don't worry, they only line up perfectly in the pictures on the manufacturer's web site. Pick the panel you'd like to start with an give it a light to moderate coating of Windex. Fairly quickly, peel the entire backing off the graphic and gently place it about where it should stay. At this point, do NOT press down hard. Many graphics use pressure sensitive adhesive and the goal here is to use the Windex to allow you to slide the graphic on the plastic, making fine adjustments until everything is exactly where it should be. Since the Windex will evaporate slowly, you have some time to make these adjustments, but of course, not all day. Once the graphic is where you want it, apply some downward pressure to set it place and begin the process of carefully removing the unevaporated Windex from underneath the graphic. This is done by wrapping the plastic credit card with a cotton towel and using it like a squeegee. Remember, Windex evaporates, so you don't need to get it completely dry. Once there seems to be very little Windex left underneath the graphic, plug in your hair dryer and speed up the evaporation process, being careful to not get the graphic too hot, as the vinyl can melt. Usually just a minute of two per panel is enough. Lastly, using a clean, dry towel over your hand, carefully apply downward pressure over the entire graphic, making sure it's firmly in contact with the panel. Be very careful to not push the graphic, screwing up your alignment. Let the bike sit for 24 hours and you're ready to ride. If you find any bubbles in the graphics, welcome to the club. As far as I'm concerned, only the factory can get graphics on as perfect as they do. However, small air bubbles can be popped with a needle and improved visually. Lastly, graphics on plastic fuel tanks, even though they are perforated will eventually bubble and there is really nothing you can do about it. Remember, it's a dirt bike not a show car and nothing in life is perfect. Now go make that bike purdy!
  6. I was looking at a couple previous contests and realised that I haven't done one of these in a long time, actually Dec 4th was the last one... We've had 4 contests to date.... #1 http://www.thumpertalk.com/topic/1023191-free-tires-mothers-day-hookup/page-1?hl=+free #2 http://www.thumpertalk.com/topic/997175-free-custom-numberplate-backgrounds/page-1 #3 http://www.thumpertalk.com/topic/1034165-free-full-plastic-kit-for-you-dirtbike/page-1?hl=free #4 http://www.thumpertalk.com/topic/1058526-free-number-plate-backgrounds2/ SO, LETS GET ANOTHER ONE OF THESE GOING!!!!! I'm not sure 100% what the prize will be, but it will be AWESOME! Could be anything from a Stabilizer Kit, Oversized Tank, OS rotor kit, set of RARE GOLDENTYRES, new gear, new plastics etc etc. I'm going to leave this one up to the you! In respect we will try to support TT and whatever the product is by buying the item from their store first...... In general I will let the winner decide what HE/SHE wants and it will be worth around the $300+/- mark So how do you WIN?????? In no-less then a short 5 sentence story AND A PICTURE (or more for brownie points), tell us how your year of riding has been. Tell us about a memorable ride with a friend or 2, maybe a wife or girlfriend, a race you entered whether you placed or pushed!? Maybe its your first year, how has it been, tough? Easy? Any and every story works as long as its related to dirtbiking. If you're serious about this, really put a good effort in as this is how I pick a winner...... As before, there is a deadline. The contest will end NOV 21st and a winner chosen over the following weekend....... GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!!!!! And we all look forward to reading the great stories....

    #Black Bikes Matter

    Let's see those murdered out DRZ's This is my flavor of the 2016 season. I got sick of the bad anodizing on my Unibiker radiator guards (they always looked pinkish) so I busted out my powder coat gun and matte blacked a few things. Should look good with my black SM set up too! Post em up.

    Actually a 2009 model. Not a bad machine. Bad bits; radiators are easy to damage, even with 'gaurds'. Suspension is pretty average, stock. Suspension linkage needs greasing more than average due to a bad seal design. A bit heavy, and not real nimble. Good bits; Tons of power, easy to work on. E-start (plus kick) I don't mean to make it sound bad, it's a pretty decent bike, a few small mods and some different tires (pirelli's instead of michelin) and it's starting to work well now. I'm happy with it. With gold valves fitted front and rear, cutting the bars down a bit and setting the front springs a couple of grooves softer, it's turning much better now and doesn't feel quite so big and clumsy. Just need to sort the rider out now

    Installing Graphics...

    How do you guys do it? i saw there was a way to do it wet which is what im probably going to do since i can move it and get all the bubbles out. How hard is it to get right?

  13. I've never used a fork support before. I'm considering getting or more likely making one. how well do they stay in place when off road? I drive quite fast (even with the bike in the truck) and the bike moves around a bit mostly just the rear wheel bouncing left or right. I have seen the front turn a bit but since the straps are putting pressure on the suspension the bike is always secure. Will a fork support stay in place? My concern is that if the support falls out than the bike wont be very secure.

    Honda CR500R (1993)

    My friend from Finland actually found this in local Craigslist! So, as an investment, I went right after it before the hillclimbers got to it. It’s an awesome bike in great shape, relatively low hours and mostly original. I installed a new seat cover and tires then picked up a janky pair of shrouds to save the originals. It has been bored however, but man, this thing is an animal....even my buddy says it runs way better than his CR500 he’s owned since new. Honestly, I don’t want to sell it now!
  15. So i recently picked up a 2011 450R, and i've been looking high and low at all sorts of graphics kits for it, Really liking the Troy lee kit. Im also kinda liking (don't hate me) The pink version! There i said it!Does anybody have a picture of either on actual riders bikes, They sure look pretty on n-styles website and google etc, but what they look like on factory bikes and your average joe's are slightly different!Cheers!

    Future of the DRZ400!

    So I've worked a Suzuki dealership for a while now, and was talking to my rep about how many DRZ's I've been selling (Owning 3 myself), and about getting more SM's in for next year, bla bla bla... And from what he has told me, it looks like they are going to be making changes in the future. Only basis he has to go off of, is that according to him the DRZ is one of their dirtiest engines still on the market. That and the fact that with Yamaha and Honda coming out with these updated models, they are going to be shut out soon. He said there is a lot of talk of it going on, and is probably going to be happening soonish. As everyone else, I think a fuel injected DR-Z500 would be best case scenario (Other than the fact that it would be even heavier). That or even just a Fuel injected 400. What do you guys think?
  18. I recently got and started using Forma Adventure boots, and I like them very,very much but for one thing. The boots are are pretty burly and have a kind of big toebox, and thick lug soles. Due to this I have had to move my shifter up 1 spline, but that position adjustment is a little too high. (have to lift my foot to make shifts rather than just pivot off my footpeg, and really bad if I am gonna just take a quick ride in my sneakers!) The difference between a 1 spline adjustment on the shift lever is apx. 26 mm -or- pretty much an inch. Anyone think of a solution that would be sort of in between? Like how can I make an adjustment to the lever of about 15 mm? And yes, I have thought of bending the stock lever, but it is actually pretty tough. Is there a "custom" or adjustable shift lever for the DRZ400?
  19. Last night we wrapped up Round 5 (of 12) of the MotoFXGraphics.com "MX Graphics for Life" member contest. For those of you that are not sure what it's all about, it's a contest where you design your very own custom MX graphics using the MotoFX "MotoWrapR" design tool and submit them to a contest thread on ThumperTalk. The winner of each round is selected by your fellow members based upon the number of "likes" for each design. It's easy, fun, and absolutely free to play. The twelve winning designs are then put up for a community vote where someone will will MX graphics for life! Here's a rendering of the winning design from round 5 created by TT member bdubb106: What do you think of the design? Feel free to leave your comments below. >>> Round 6 is now live. Get in on this! <<< Here's a wrap that MotoFXGraphics.com did for one of our editors...
  20. I won round 5 of the competition and finally got all of my parts to get the bike back together with the complete package. I will have to update with some better pics on the digital camera so these will have to do for now. >>Before MotoFXGraphics.com >>After MotoFXGraphics.com Custom Wrap
