'98 WR400 StuntTard Thread

Well as some know I picked up the infamous Prickster StuntTard a few weeks ago from Griff, and I cant thank him enough for giving me such a great deal on the bike. The bike started its life as a bone stock WR400 that was purchase by Rick, Prickster, and then totally taken down and rebuilt. Rick touched everything on this bike from top to bottom and did a of a job turning a dirt bike into something that resembles what batman would ride. After Griff bought it and had it shipped from Florida and found that he didnt have the time to ride it since he was hitting the track pipe, so I picked it up and here we are. I figured the least this bike deserved was a thread to detail its changes, use and abuse.
Here it is the night I picked it up.

And all its new brothers to get acquainted with.

Here are the list of mods that Rick set this thing up with:

Wrinkle Coat Powdercoated frame and subframe
Warp 9 rims
Custom built sub frame
Custom dual caliper hand brake
Custom Aluminum Reservoir
Custom undertail exhaust
Clarck YZ gas tank
Brand new Acerbis black plastics (plus Acerbis blue and white ones)
Acerbis X-Strong handguards
SDG step seat with matching cover
EBC Supermoto front rotor
Tailtech Stealth Vapor computer
Radial pull master front and hand brake
RSC shorty clutch lever
Trailtech kickstand
Fluidyne Radiators
ASI Silicone Hoses

And an obligatory first ride video

Yeah after watching Rick do tight, slow circle wheelies on this bike, off idle, and other slow stuff, you could tell that thing was jetted spot on.

Ouch! Don't mean to be a Debbie Downer but I will never buy an older four stroke again. Did that last year and the bike needed valves and a bunch of other stuff right after I got it.

That doesn't sound good. Hopefully it's nothing serious. It's a shame fork seals are never cheap get replaced. Might as well get a new set of front brake pads when you replace the seals. As soon as oil gets onto those pads they are toast!

Thinking since the cam chain was loose that its aluminum from slapping around in the case. The metal was non ferro-magnetic so that leads me to believe it was aluminum. I know it will need a top end eventually since it smokes a little under hard acceleration, but thats not a big deal, maybe go big bore if possible. Me and fork seals neve got along, so I'll pull the forks and take them to Chad, I wondered why my stoppies were slipping out, well that and the bald front tire.

Yeah after oil gets on the pads, that stoppie power is reduced by half. More likely to lock up the front when you apply enough brake to get the end up. Makes for a sad kdog when I can't stoppie because of that.. lol

I'm gonna run some fresh oil through it for a few minutes and drain it again, maybe a few times and see what happens. I have to pull the exhaust off to get the oil filter out!

If I just loosen the nuts holding the exhaust to the cylinder I can lift the pipe up to get it out of the way
