Yeah, it's the WR450F. I've been in contact with the original owner. He's been working on getting the MSO from the dealer for me. Gotta love helpful Minnesota folk!

I was running 12psi Front 10psi Rear. Or I might have been at 14 Front & 12 rear to play safe and not risk pinch flats? I forget. I tend to set things and leave them like that. Heck, I haven't even touched the suspension clickers on this bike. Who knows what the previous owners set it at.

ok AG, I run 13/13 . Also what knee protection do you use? I need to wear more stuff , pretty good but not 100%, my knees are good so like to keep them that way...of course crashing on rocks or tagging a tree is all it takes to wreck my year. Hows the power hit on the 450 ? I want you to ride bubba bike and compare.

Thanks! The blisters are starting to heal up.


Moose was right. I shoulda been on a Japanese bike all along!



Oh, and Moose, I found the issue with my 250F. One of the head alignment dowels wasn't seating all the way into the head, so it was sticking up about 0.040". Just enough to let the head gasket get an initial squish, but never enough to properly seal under load. Should be back in action shortly.

Andrew
Glad it was figured out, I knew it was a simple over sight.

And yes, jap dirt bikes have served me well now for 40 years, I'm taking this one to Michigan with a bunch of Motojunkies, thier all riding KTM's, should be interesting.

Remember Gore, you'll be old some day like me and Skinner, let's not even talk about how old Smudge and 2wheels are.



Me, Doc's Farm, somewhere in Northern Indiana, circa 81', my beloved 76' RM250.
