Rated for 1,500 lbs.....it should lift a Harley --- if you drain all the fluids first.

Years ago, I rode an RD350 and always kept a bottle of 2 stroke oil under the seat. My boss rode a POS Harley. Every once in a while, I'd pour a puddle of oil under his bike in the parking lot. Then I'd go by his office and say: "hey man, I think your bike's leaking oil..."

Cross posting from Thumpers...

Here's what I've been up to so far this winter

__________________________________________________ _____________________


Hi all

I bought a 2003 wr450f a couple of months ago and I am in the middle of fixing it up over the winter. It was pretty stock when I bought it. In Canada these bikes aren't street legal and you cant make them...this one is grand fathered as street legal It has approx 2500 km on it.

I spent some time degreasing everything and cleaning it up.




Since then I have:
Added a set of evo air fastway pegs
WC frame protectors
Billet back brake disc guard
An Acerbis tank w/ YZ shrouds
Scorpion racing rad guard
New billet chain guide
Some decals
Renthal RC High Bars
BRP top triple
Roxx 2 inch risers
HDB Handguards
HDB Rally Lite kit (still in progress of installing)
A Ricochet skid plate (not installed yet)

I'm sure I am missing a few things. Once it gets running again (soon) new fork springs and rear shock spring will get installed along with a tune up.
Also have an ICO and waiting on an ordered Aurora Roadbook holder. The bike is being built for rally raids.

I bought one of those Baja Designs rear tanks. I had a lot of thought on buying a Safari 17 liter front or an Acerbis front and BD rear. I like the idea of keeping the front end as light as possible so went with the two tank combo. I shouldn't have, the BD tank is junk for this bike. Doesn't even come close to lining up and relies on spacers to hold it out from the subframe. I can't see that holding up to a good crash. Anyone got a 17 liter Safari tank they don't need? Anyone wanna buy a BD rear tank ?


All in all its coming together quite nicely. The grey wire hasn't been cut or any of those mods....thinking I'll try it as is to see if it needs more...if so then I'll cut the wire and do the mods required.

I'm 6'2 so having the lowered and back Fastway pegs along with the bars being raised about 5 inches form stock is great. originally I felt like it was a mini bike now it feels right

I'll post up some pics when it gets finished. Here is how it sits today...

The end goal is a rally bike for under $6000. I might be a touch over but not much

I am trying to drop pounds for many reasons, but one is MC gear. Can anyone recommend a good DS jacket for the horizontaly challenged?
