I dont know if guys are doing major power mods or what or how much more you can even got out of a 28hp bike. I cannot imagine riding that thing very far especially loaded with gear for a trip. Again just my opinion thats all the time i have on one is maybe 10 minutes.
I would agree that the WR does feel really down on power if you you do not ride it right. You have to be willing to rev the motor pretty high and it goes pretty well. It really takes some getting used to when switching between bikes.
