Default What did you do to your Gas Gas today?

In the WR450 Forum I used to frequent, there was a "What have you done to your bike today" thread is really good for getting ideas for mods or for problem solving. It's also great for posting pics of anything related to riding or working on bikes. Let's get one going here.

I'll kick it off with my hardware store $1.00 seat bolt "through the top" conversion mod for my 12 300. I got my idea from Stu. The bolt is a stainless button head 40mm long same dia and pitch as stock. Two aluminum fender washers and a stainless nylon lock nut. Drilled from under the seat through the existing hole, then screwed bolt and washer down from top using RED Loctite. Then just use the nylon lock nut and other alum fender washer. Works great and that seat isn't coming off because of anything to do with the bolt. There is a fancy kit with anodized red cup washer you can get, but it's hard to beat $1.00 and having it done now and not waiting for shipping.

I installed a set of Red plastics on the 250 and sent the 200's suspension off to Drew Smith.

Sweet!

I find it odd that in a Liberal Blue state it is easier to get a off road bike plated than down here in La.

I went out to the garage and looked at mine twice so far ... does that count?

Last week, I swapped out the ignition coil/wire for the one from my 94 YZ 250 [direct bolt up w/change of wire connector] so that I could use the Nology wire that I liked so much & installed some '07 shrouds that really made it look better. Now my 01 and 03 look the same and "newer" than they are.

Default Not easy

Its not easy to find a plateable 2t here Basically only reason I bought it was that its illegally legal or vice versa.Really didnt need another bike! You find them once in awhile usually ex race bikes that I think had a few strings pulled via dealers importers etc.
It still took a cop coming to my house and 3 trips to the registry
So not easy
