Hey guys, Been following the forum for a very long time and finally got myself a license. I'm Chris, I'm 32, from Northern Ireland, and currently living in the magical city of Cairns, in far north Queensland, Australia. I bought this bike last year and started learning to ride, which got put on hold due to Coronavirus restrictions putting me out of work for a few months. We reopened and I got my license last month....so now I present to you 'Sully' (Monsters Inc), my little blue Yamaha WR450F. The bike is an 05, has the grey wire mod (YZ450F timing), derestricted exhaust, derestricted airbox, throttle stop removed, Acerbis 6.6 gallon/25 litre tank, Jeep/4x4 LED headlight (this has saved my life many times and helped me spot Kangaroos on my way home from work), 48 tooth rear/16 tooth front sprocket swap (absolutely amazing on the WR450F for highway riding), LED indicators and relay, few shiny annodized bits, and some new plastics and decals. Here's some pics from the past year. I love the forum, and have used this site many many times for inspiration and advice. The day I brought her home, with expired registration and no roadworthy (safety inspection) certificate. Tried out some new decals, but after some major frustration wetsanding and trying to make the fuel tank blue again, I gave up and thought long distance practicality, and put an order in for the HUGE Acerbis 6.6 gallon (25 litre) tank. Swapped the faded blue Barkbusters handguards for some newer Barkbusters VPS handguards in white. Metal bracket is the same, so it's only a case of buying the plastic bits only (half the cost). Few stickers on there from different stores, some nice polished alloy frame guards, and a newer front fender. Got my restricted license (660cc maximum for first 2 years), and got using this thing as my daily (maybe 6 weeks ago) and riding to my bar job in Palm Cove (30 minutes North of Cairns, before Port Douglas). Got to see just how dangerous/pitiful the original headlight is. After 2 x nights at work and riding past multiple kangaroos and wallabies, I swapped to an LED bulb, which was much brighter, but still was blocked by the front fender and made night driving much more dangerous. I put this rather odd looking (but extremely practical) 7" LED headlight (cheap aftermarket one for Jeep/Land Rover use), raised it as high as possible on the forks, and added a cafe racer fly screen wrapped in white vinyl (to match the white handguards), along with a Dakar touareg decal. I have a windscreen (windshield?) to go on there too, but currently dealing with an issue of the flyscreen pivoting back at 80km/h (50mph?), so the mini-screen will need to be reinforced somehow to prevent it swinging back at highway speeds. Here it is with my housemate's 2020 Royal Enfield Himalayan. My LED headlight is currently a temporary solution until I build/adapt a rally fairing and get some decals made up. My friend works in the mines up north in Weipa (near the top of Australia) and has a fabricating business (he works 3 weeks in the mines, and 3 weeks in Cairns with his business) and will be bending/welding steel racks for the side for panniers, and I will be adding Pelican cases (already purchased). I plan to ride to Cape York next year (northern tip of Australia), and I've heard it's a playground for dirt roads, uninhabited beaches, and unusual wildlife! Let me know what you think guys, the bike is currently being used daily and regeared for my 30 minute work commute in the evenings (48 tooth rear, 16 tooth front sprockets - much much better for highway). Below is a few pics of nearby beauty.
