With the passage of SB5800 I knew it was time for a sweet plated dirt bike.
I had made my XRs all they could be, but they were still slow and heavy.

so I looked for a good 450 all around bike. It was a decision between the KTM450/525/530 and the WR450F. Too many valve parties with the Hondas. I have always liked Inspectors WRR, and found a good deal on a 2007 WR450F, so I went blue.

Friday, February 17
$3400
Still on the original tires, good shape, good deal



Sun, April 8
Finished!





Back to February..

Got home at 6PM and went to town on the mods for inspection.





ADVmonster.com 3500lumen LED light hooked to run with the HI beam. This thing is stupid bright.

Slap the DOT tire on, some other doodads and I am off to bed. Next day...

RAD cush hub, heavy duty spokes. Tubliss front and rear





Tach/HR Meter


Choices... Choices..


I think Ill run the 09 YZ450F exhaust with PMB SA + Ultra Quiet tip for now. That Leo Vince will see adventure days so it doesnt get bashed, its too nice. The 09 system has 95% of the power gain that the LV gives, so I am not missing much. I like how it is tucked away with the short can.


the 09 yzf pipe. The header is HUGE.


I have a IMS 3.1G tank on the way.

This thing is FOBAR. Farkled out beyond all recognition big

Wow, sweet bike, congrats!! Major upgrade from the "L"! Does Cyclebuy have that 2 finger clutch lever in stock still? I couldn't find it on their site and Rekluse don't have them anymore!? We have to go riding some time! :)

Bike build is complete! Less than two months and it is set up just how I want.



Put the 07 YZ450F pipe on.. Definitely my favorite. Very quiet, but sounds great when you rip it. Probably right up there in power with the Leo Vince w/o silent insert, but about as quiet as w/ silent insert. The silent insert on the LV is smaller dia than the YZF. Sounds a lot better than the 08 YZF too.



Put a spark arrestor in


Billet heavy duty clutch cover, Clarke 3.6G tank



Walker last thursday
