This could be a fun thread to see what everyone is doing to their bikes.

So lets have it. Show off those farkles and mods or just the maintenace you did. This thread could go on forever.......

I will start it off.


  1. Dropped the linkage attaching to bottom of the rear shock. Swapped the OEM knuckle that screws onto the bottom of the shock back on there. The PO had lowered the bike with an aftermarket knuckle. This puts it back to stock height with 1 inch lowered.
  2. While I had the linkage off, moved rear tire through its complete range to see how the chain tension is. This also gives me a good feel for how to tighten the chain relative to picking it up toward lowere swing arm.
  3. Mounted my GPS RAM mount to handle bar.
  4. Installed GPS power cord from battery to GPS location.
  5. Andjusted compression and rebound on front and rear with settings I found in this forum.
  6. Cleaned and oiled air filter.
  7. Clened and lubbed chain. Adjusted chain tension

Ready for maiden voyage into the woods! Nothing exotic or exciting, except setting up my new to me WRR.

Way too cold to ride today, so I worked on my AIS and air box Mods. Also completed installation of new chain and sprockets. I went with 13/47 with 112 links. I can not wait until the first decent day to try it out.

Took the slack out of my throttle. Need to do a test ride to see if it helps the low throttle jerks.

Pulled the spark plug to check it out. It looked fine. But it had very little torque on it when I took it out! I wonder if I was loosing some compression? Glad I cheded it.

Man that spark plug is way down in there! Had to put a small piece of tape on one side of my socket so it would grip the the plug to pull it out.

I checked use of the spark plug wrenck from the OEM tool kit. I can't see how in heck you can get a spark plug out with that thing! HAs anyone done it successfuly?? If so, was there a trick to it??

So far I've:
Replaced all the plastics with black ones.
Installed a larger rear sprocket and new chain.
Installed a rear luggage rack (Yamaha luggage on back order).
Installed electric vest hookup.
Installed Acerbis Bark Busters.
Lowered the font and rear suspension.
GPS mount with Delorme PN-60w and SPOT device.
Put Michelin AC10 tires on with UHD tubes.
Had the rims powdercoated black.
Installed larger IMS 3 gallon tank.
Installed Corbin seat.

That was all in the first few weeks of owning the thing, and that'll do for this year at least...

Put on a soft tail bag that I had.

Took her for a test ride. 60 miles, 0.964 gallons of gas, 62.4 mpg. I guess that is just ok for these bikes.

Yes, I believe it is the Flatland. I just got the bike (new to me) and it was already on there. I have not had the pleasure to bash it on rocks yet! BUt it looks like a good solid skid plate.

Tried to cover her with an old tarp to keep the rain off. But it blew off. Guess I need a cycle cover.

Nooo, roll the bike onto one side of the tarp so the wheels hold that side of it down. Wrap it over, tuck the other side under the kick stand and throw a couple cinder blocks on the tarp by the wheels. she won't go anywhere then. Unless it's too small....

Can't roll the bike until I bolt the rear shock back on, but I did this:

Traded this puny-sized sprocket...

A bit mundane. But here they are anyway.

Took a break when I hit a road.



Did find some nasty mud holes. The aftermath

From yesterday on TT's same thread:

I put a new Acerbis Spyder disc guard on, cleaned and greased the axle/bearings, swapped out the handlebars, added hand guards, added frame guards. Took the carb off and put the other JD needle in and swapped out the old pilot and main jets with new jets.

I spent part of the day looking for new, clear vent line (the old stuff was well, "Old"), and finally said screw it and put the old stuff back on (and ordered 25 ft of it through Motion Pro for $8.95).

Flushed out the tank, added new gas and before trying to start it noticed it was still draining gas out of the float bowl. Guessing the float/needle jet is stuck. Grrrrrrr.... So I guess I'm going to go out and doink with it some more.

Today: Took it apart and re-cleaned the carb and put a CF skiddie on. Edit: AND IT (The 450) STILL WON'T RUN ! Grrrrrr...

Happy New Years all ! !

Edit: BUT HER WRR RUNS ALL DAY LONG ! !

My box of goodies came the other day! Very happy


Put on my new sprocket, JT 46 tooth. Unfortunately i am going to need a longer chain.....maybe i can buy a couple links....dont really want to spend $80 on a chain, that money is for the Edge2 taillight! wings


My new handlebars, Renthal Race High bend. An inch taller than stock. Black goes really nice with the bike even though it is not an X droooool Still waiting on my grips though, backordered till Jan 15 GAHHHH

How many link chain do you need with that 46 tooth?? You still have 13 in front?

I like the bars!
