Where is your picture taken? Is that the trestle west of Mammoth?

I LOVE my YZF426 (younger brother to a WR450)

It makes an excellent desert bike

In TX it's really easy to get a dirt bike tagged.

The 99 YZ400F and the 2001 YZ400F have the same exhaust cam, but different intake cams. Does anyone know where I can find cam grind info on these?

Here's my '03 WR250F. It's plated and converted over to YZ-spec and got a bunch of other goodies. Blew it up a couple week ago though...

I can squeeze out 140 km/hr on GPS, but it's screaming with 14/50 gearing. Cruises nicely around 90km/hr. Might drop the rear to a 48 to make things more comfortable. I'm not a fan of the new aluminum frame WR's, too much of pain in the ass to get the carb out and the weight of my 04 with the stock 10L tank is the same as a new 09 with an 8L tank. Ideally, i'd like a minty 06 WR450 with the whizzy digital odometer and my seat and tank.
I had a 2000 XR650R with a kit on it, and after D/S'ing my WR, I sold the BRP. The WR is superior for the kinds of riding we do around here. Great all-around bike if set up properly.

Does that Acerbis tank fit as well on the 450's as it does on my 250? It it the same tank? I freakin' love that thing. Best fit/finish and shape of any 3.3-3.5 gallon gas tanks I've ever seen. It's one of the only reasons I don't get a newer WR (seriously). The aluminum perimeter framed bikes SUCK when it comes to fitting them with oversized tanks.
