\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\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\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\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\nPicture below, is how the bike was as I bought it, in it\'s non-running state.
\r\nAnd some of the parts I received with it.
\r\nThe bike also is grandfathered in to be road legal in Ontario
\r\nInstall Enduro Lighting Kit and Vapor Dash
\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\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\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
