  1. Recently acquired a low-hour 2005 WR450 and was faced with having to un-do the half assed attempt at AIS removal the previous owner had done. A real horror show that leaked badly and it had to go in favor of a proper permanent solution. The GYTR AIS removal kit for the 2005-6 WR450s is a dodgy solution also, relying on clamping a cap on the 90 degree elbow coming out of the cylinder head. There used to be pre-made options for AIS removal on these bikes, but now those are all gone except for the GYTR kit. The solutions that are no longer available consisted of a plug that was driven into the hole in the head left after removing the pipe elbow. A much better solution than the GYTR kit. Some will say the GYTR kit is nice because it includes a needle and throttle stop, but the value there is dubious considering that you can just cut the throttle stop and many folks (myself included) opt for the JD jetting kit so that makes the GYTR needle and jets unnecessary. So, faced with not wanting to lay out $50 for the GYTR kit and its weak answer to the problem I set out to find an acceptable substitute for the plugs that are no longer available. Behold the solution: Dorman part number 555-106 freeze plugs, a whopping 39 cents each at O'Reilly Auto Parts. These are 12.1mm oil gallery plugs. The hole in the head is 12mm, and these fit perfectly. Actually a bit tighter than the pipe elbow I removed. One plug installed: There is a lip at the bottom of the hole that prevents them from being driven in too far. The hole is deep enough to accept as many as three plugs, but that is definitely overkill. As tightly as they fit, one should be plenty but erring on the side of caution and just wanting to fill the hole up so it doesn't collect a lot of mud and dirt I installed a second one: These are not coming out without a drill and a slide hammer. This is the proper, permanent solution to this problem! For the small vacuum fitting on the head near the carb, a standard rubber vacuum cap is sufficient. Also for the airbox, a 1/2 inch rubber vacuum cap took care of that. Total investment: Dorman 555-106 plugs: .39 each, .78 total Pack of assorted vacuum caps: 3.49 Total: $4.27 Less than 1/10 the price of the GTYR kit, and a MUCH better solution in my opinion!
  2. I wanted to be able to remove my fender packs when i don't need them...but i also like the security of the bolt-on design, rather than the strap on type of packs. Here is my solution. Chuck the pins in the worlds smallest vise and use a cutting wheel, or hacksaw to cut them just above the first hitch pin hole. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE WEAR SAFETY GLASSES!!! Cutting wheels have a tendency to fly apart whenever they want to...and riding is tough with one eye. Then chamfer and smooth the rough ends with the worlds smallest bench grinder. *I have a pretty small garage, so you will notice many of my tools are also of Lilliputian dimensions Now, you have used the bolt holes in your fender pack as a template to drill the appropriate holes in your fender. Here we see the trimmed Clevis pins with washers inserted into the underside of the fender holes, and epoxied in place. Here we see the finished product from the top of the fender. This is the way it will look when you don't want to lug around your packs. Now, you can use the hitch pins to secure your fender bag in a snap...and still take it off easily!! Here is my headlight shroud getting the same treatment. And the finished product, the way it looks when you don't want to take your packs. And here it is with my moose tool pack attached All done!!!!

    Awesome bike...pulls hard and will go full 3rd gear wheelie with 285 LB me on it. Always starts after a crash, and pulled me out of pipe deep clay mud. The longer I have this bike the more I love it.

    Picked up an 05 WR450 for $750. Pretty good shape. The bike will overheat after idling for less then 10 minutes and blow into the overflow tank. My 2001 WR426 would idle all day and not overheat. I know the cooling fluid capacity was higher on the old WR's. A high cfm computer fan will prevent it from overheating, 92 mm is the largest fan size that will fit within the radiator width. But these fans are not made for rough service vibration, dust, water, mud, and temps above 70 deg C (158 F). But they are cheap, $3 to $20 each depending on the source. Should the 05 WR450 overheat at idle? Does your WR450 overheat? Have you rode with a computer fan strapped tight against the back side of your radiator?

    Bike with hydraulic frontwheeldrive. Very stable at high speed in sand until you close the throttle, then it acts like a normal bike. Very strange to ride, almost impossible to drift, like you are on tarmac. Normal reflexes when opening throttle in corners dont work.

    Bought it new in California. With the smog restrictions and throttle limiter, it was pretty slow and wouldn't rev. I just installed a GYTR programmable ECU and took out the throttle limiter, it started way easier. Can't wait to try it out in the dirt!

    Uncork and get on dirt and you'll love it. On pavement, not the greatest, but it's made for dirt of course.

    I call her black and blue because that is what happens when i try to hang on, i swapped many parts with a 2003 YZ to get a sleaker profile and get better plastic choices.
