Hi Ash, yes the head light is off a Honda 2006 model CRF450X that I once owned. It came in the spares kit. No dought there will be a lot more out there.
 The WR500 came with lighting coil as standard, maybe you could fit something up.
                                                                                                                 Cheers Chippy.

With all the new members from USA that own WR500's, perhaps  more additions to this thread would be good.

Hey Guys --  Here's the "before" pics, while she is still in her work clothes! 

If you look at the sprocket, the clutch arm damage is clear....  Also tranny was locked up solid, jug is on first over, head will be getting a decomp valve to save me leg!!!  Most of the mechanicals are done, frame is getting rattle canned, new-used side panels, DID X-chain, etc. etc.

I'll get a thread started when she's all tarted up in her dancing clothes, ready for Saturday Night.

I Really Need a good aftermarket pipe (shinny chrome like Robs), and also a kickstand/bracket.  Any help would be much appreciated (ws6transam, or ? ......)

Cheers!

Well done Bruce (thanks for posting pics Muzz). Not a bad way to go getting a bike shipped.
Did the $$$$$$ match up with the bike?

Hi Thiago,
It's time to get it dirty again.  When was the last time you rode it?
Still looks better than new!!

Thanks, Dave, Muzz and Steve.

Everything is good here.

I haven't ridden the WR since 2009(!). It's a shame, I know. I do however start it once in a while, change the oil every couple years, pump some air into the tires... and that's it.

Hope you guys are doing great.

Cheers,

Thiago.

Hi mate, Is that a WR fatty pipe or a YZ 490 pipe?

I am having a few little problems fitting a 490 pipe onto mine.

Thanks heaps

Rob
