OMG WOW!!!!!! POWER BEYOND BELIEF
« on: December 10, 2017, 10:25:43 PM »
Well after 12 weeks of tinkering, beautification, pipes, plastics, graphics, renthals etc.......today I road my WR 500 for the first time. It felt like old times. I had one back in the mid 1990s and it was a great thing.......BUT

This one I have found has been ported, polished and is on a 1mm oversize bore and is a race beast.

My last bike was a Yamaha V-Max - It was a brilliant monster.

The new WR 500 is beyond description power wise. Take offs 1st second 3rd and omg.

I weigh 120 kg. This thing doesnt care.  I may as well have been a twig the way it hauled me.


I knew in my bones that chasing my past glories was a bit silly....... How would I ever get a good one like I had?

Sad to say it - this beast is prefect. Brakes, gears, shocks, handling and twice as much power as my old WR 500 from 93.

Today I had to go through a few gates. Popped the stand down and thanks to Muzz. The deadly highly tuned monster sat there idling clean, no pings hardly at all. Who ever the magician was that did the engine work on this beast  needs a medal.

I am proud to say that I am in love with this beast and it is a dream come true :)

Rob :)

Don't you just love the fact you CanT  get the clutch in and out fast enough before the next gear change is due  HAHA Luv It
My mate and I took out my IT490 and WR500 and his YZ490 in the bush  and decided to do some race starts on open ground .the 500 was the slowest by far as it never got traction .but when it did it was full noise in top by then and the other bikes  were gone .
Glad your enjoying your beast
