\r\n Default Yet another WR450... Rebuild.\r\n

\r\n \r\n \r\n \r\n
\r\n
\r\n
\r\n Earlier this year, I snapped up a cheap 2004 WR450F, with dirt and SuMo wheels.
\r\n
\r\nIt was a non-runner, sitting in a garage for about 3 years.
\r\n
\r\nI saw the bike roughly 3 years ago for sale, but at that time it came with 2 frames, and was about 50% more expensive.
\r\n
\r\nThis bike came with a TON of spare parts, including a complete wiring harness, extra gas tank and full plastic kit, spare carb (which I regret selling, I\'ll make a post about that), a complete second rear brake, and... a FULL Tusk Enduro Lighting Kit.
\r\n
\r\nI\'ll try and make posts about progress that I made to it a while back, till current state. I\'ve already been riding the bike, and put about 2000 km on it, and fixed a bunch of stuff that I list below.
\r\n
\r\nPicture below, is how the bike was as I bought it, in it\'s non-running state.
\r\n
\r\nAnd some of the parts I received with it.
\r\n
\r\nThe bike also is grandfathered in to be road legal in Ontario
\r\n
\r\nThe List:
\r\nGet Running
\r\nInstall Enduro Lighting Kit and Vapor Dash
\r\nFix Exhaust
\r\nFix Suspension (Front too hard, rear too soft)
\r\nPartially re-make the entire wiring harness, and remove erroneous items (Clutch switch, kill switch, wires for ignition light, etc...)
\r\nPaint/Powder Coat the frame black
\r\nPaint the engine to make it looks nice
\r\nDye all the plastics black
\r\nBuy/Install Seat Concepts seat
\r\nPossibly new rads and rad guards
\r\nPossibly get a nicer headlight
\r\nReplace steering stem bearings
\r\nMaybe get new tires (The Pirelli\'s are 10 years old, and never used, but not dry...)
\r\nUpgrade to Fat Bars
\r\nGet proper hand guards (Zeta or Emperor Racing that mount to the bar clamps)
\r\nBig maaaaybe is upgrade the front brake
\r\nAs well as one day get a new carb (This is a long story)
\r\n
\r\nSnow is going to fly any day now, which means I\'ll be pretty busy with work, so I\'ve got all winter to finish or get this project back on the road.
\r\n
\r\nThis WR450 replaced a Husaberg FS550 which I rebuilt the motor over last winter to flip the bike, sure the WR is a little slower and a little fatter, but it won\'t need nearly as much maintenance.\r\n

    \r\n The first thing I had to do to get the bike running was check the valves.
    \r\n
    \r\nBad previous owner, bad....
    \r\n
    \r\nThis guy must have put in a + instead of - on his calculator and got the wrong shims.
    \r\n
    \r\nHad to swap around the smallest shim I had to measure the clearance and determine that I needed 3 shims in the end.
    \r\n
    \r\nThe bike wouldn\'t run at all before I did the shims.\r\n

    \r\n The second thing that needed to happen to get the bike running right, is ideally a new carb.
    \r\n
    \r\nThe bike came with 2 carbs, one really dirty one, and one clean one.
    \r\n
    \r\nNow, for some reason, I didn\'t look inside the dirty carb, and just assumed that it was older and probably had more junk inside to clean out of it.
    \r\n
    \r\nSo I sold it, to recoup some money and make the bike a little cheaper, I was considering flipping it at first like the last bike I had, and what better way to make some additional profit, than to sell the spare parts.
    \r\n
    \r\nWell, that was a bad idea, the clean carb turns out to have a worn slide, which is preventing me from raising the idle any higher than 1600 rpm, or else it hangs because the slide catches on the wear marks in the carb body.
    \r\n
    \r\nIt also had a secret hiding in it, some funny guy at the factory decided to do something very mean.
    \r\n
    \r\nThe check valve for the AP nozzle was pressed in all the way, not allowing any flow, in or out of the nozzle.
    \r\n
    \r\nHad to drill and put a screw in the valve to pull it out, and re-insert it so that the valve worked.
    \r\n
    \r\nYep, wish I hadn\'t sold the other carb when I found all this out.\r\n

    \r\n After I got the bike running as best I could, I installed the Tusk Enduro Lighting Kit, and the Vapor Dash.
    \r\n
    \r\nAlso found a good deal on a Leo Vince system that was sitting around for 10 years, the stock can sounds so incredibly bad.
    \r\n
    \r\nSelling that other carb nearly paid for the new exhaust.
    \r\n
    \r\nWhen I installed the Lighting Harness, I also bought an R6 start/stop switch, to clean up the bars.\r\n

    \r\n So, at this point I was fairly happy with the bike, except the the suspension.
    \r\n
    \r\nI rode it for a few months with horrible suspension, just taking cruises to the local 60km~ away coffee shop at the twisties.
    \r\n
    \r\nThis winter I decided I need to do something about the suspension on the bike.
    \r\n
    \r\nIt came into the house, and decided, I\'ve got all winter, lets make this bike nice, and unique-ish at the same time.
    \r\n
    \r\nFirst thing I did was fix the forks, the bushings were shot, and the seals were "All Balls"... Chinese junk.
    \r\n
    \r\nNew OEM Seals and Bushings, the forks are nice and smooth now.
    \r\n
    \r\nI\'ve always had the issue of the forks feeling too hard, and the rear shock was waaaaay too soft.
    \r\n
    \r\nRear spring is currently in the mail, and I hope the stock fork springs are stiff enough and they work well together.\r\n

    \r\n Or it was rebuilt and the pressure pushed out the Schrader valve threads. Never count your epiphanies before the hatch.

    \r\n Nah, I tightened the valve core, it was loose.
    \r\n
    \r\nGot my black plastics in the mail today
    \r\n
    \r\nAnd one of the brake parts I decided to go with.
    \r\n
    \r\nIf it\'s too wooden with the caliper I bought, I\'ll just replace the reservoir pipe and lever and probably sell it.. can probably make a profit off it.\r\n

    \r\n Picked up this Brembo 4 pot caliper from a KTM 640 Supermoto for quite cheap, included a SS brake line, that I won\'t be using, anyone want to buy it?
    \r\n
    \r\nI already know I\'ll have to grind it down, do the KTM\'s really have that much wider front ends?
    \r\n
    \r\nAlso new rotor you can see in the background, because the EBC rotor will not work with a Brembo caliper. EBC rotor and adapter for sale!\r\n

      Default Yet another WR450... Rebuild.

      Earlier this year, I snapped up a cheap 2004 WR450F, with dirt and SuMo wheels.

      It was a non-runner, sitting in a garage for about 3 years.

      I saw the bike roughly 3 years ago for sale, but at that time it came with 2 frames, and was about 50% more expensive.

      This bike came with a TON of spare parts, including a complete wiring harness, extra gas tank and full plastic kit, spare carb (which I regret selling, I'll make a post about that), a complete second rear brake, and... a FULL Tusk Enduro Lighting Kit.

      I'll try and make posts about progress that I made to it a while back, till current state. I've already been riding the bike, and put about 2000 km on it, and fixed a bunch of stuff that I list below.

      Picture below, is how the bike was as I bought it, in it's non-running state.

      And some of the parts I received with it.

      The bike also is grandfathered in to be road legal in Ontario

      The List:
      Get Running
      Install Enduro Lighting Kit and Vapor Dash
      Fix Exhaust
      Fix Suspension (Front too hard, rear too soft)
      Partially re-make the entire wiring harness, and remove erroneous items (Clutch switch, kill switch, wires for ignition light, etc...)
      Paint/Powder Coat the frame black
      Paint the engine to make it looks nice
      Dye all the plastics black
      Buy/Install Seat Concepts seat
      Possibly new rads and rad guards
      Possibly get a nicer headlight
      Replace steering stem bearings
      Maybe get new tires (The Pirelli's are 10 years old, and never used, but not dry...)
      Upgrade to Fat Bars
      Get proper hand guards (Zeta or Emperor Racing that mount to the bar clamps)
      Big maaaaybe is upgrade the front brake
      As well as one day get a new carb (This is a long story)

      Snow is going to fly any day now, which means I'll be pretty busy with work, so I've got all winter to finish or get this project back on the road.

      This WR450 replaced a Husaberg FS550 which I rebuilt the motor over last winter to flip the bike, sure the WR is a little slower and a little fatter, but it won't need nearly as much maintenance.
