I usually use my Hydrapak Laguna bag. Its has a three Liter bladder, that I usually only fill with 1.5 liters. In the bag section, I carry some minimal tools, tire air gauge, and in a dry bag, my water, cellphone, and cash.

I would like to try and go back to using just my CamelPack classic...and get the tools and wallet/cell/cash off my back.

So, I am looking at either a number plate style bag, or one I could secure to my Automotive Machine Supply rear rack..but if I go that route..it has to be small and not hit me when doing the whoops.

Any suggestions appreciated. Links also helpful.

Giantloop Mojavi works for me.


I also have a Fandango tank bag that is surprisingly smaller on the bike than I thought it would be. I never take the Mojavi off though. It has my trail stand, pump, tools and I sometimes carry my heated liner and heated gloves in it as well as tire irons and a cliff bar or two. It is nice to always have your emergency stuff with you .

Does anyone have a stock shock spring (if you've up-graded to aftermarket) or a higher rate than stock spring (if you've up-graded and didn't like it) that you want to sell?

I need a heavier rate spring for a 450F project, and was hoping a 250 R/X spring might be collecting dust on a shelf in someones shed.

No night pics but the HIDs in mine are the very best lights I have had on a motorcycle ever. I really enjoyed the lights on my strom, but these are much better.

+1 on the GL Mojavi. It is perfect for the back of the WRR on day trips - rides low and tight and it stays put. I also have the Wolfman Enduro saddle bags and the Wolfman peak tail bag, but I only use the saddle bags on longer trips now. Never see a need for the peak tail bag anymore (I don't want to sell it tho), and the with MoJavi I can still swing my leg over the bike...most of the time.

Number Plate bag

I use the Moose number plate bag on my WRR--as long as you do a good job chinching it down it stays in place. I've banged it around on some rough stuff and it has stayed in place. Price is right.

WRR/X rear shock adjusting

Here are the requested vids and pics of how to adjust the rear shock on the Yami WRR/X.

Disclaimer....I am just a guy who rides bikes. I am not an expert of any kind or a mechanic. I am not a professional anything related to motorcycles or riding. Take this all with that in mind..I am just a guy who rides bikes. Anything you do to your bike, you are responsible for. I am just showing how I do stuff on my bike.

First pics are the pages in the manual. They are a little confusing, since the blurbs before the adjustment instructions and the word in parentheses, next to settings are contradictory. At least the way I am looking at it.

Rebound damping force adjustment:

..

Compression damping force adjustment:

..

Rebound damping knob( bottom of shock):


Compression damping screw( top of gas cyclinder):
..

First vid..setting of rebound damping:



Second vid...getting to middle of rebound damping:



Third vid....compression damping setting:

(( disclaimer..I messed up what I was saying in this one at the start) Turning to max counterclockwise gives you the least compression damping..turning out out, or counterclockwise, gives you the max compression damping..12 clicks per manual))



Fourth vid..seeing results..or not seeing with WRR shock:

Do you mount yours above the headlight? That faring is flimsy so any issues with mounting it.. i thought about snagging a bag for that area just to put extra nick-nacks in..

The other three vids are currently uploading. I had a hell of a time getting them to upload. I guess my windows/computer is a little older, since I had to go an older uploaded to get it to start working. LOL

Hope it helps anyone out.

Yep above the headlight--I keep it light but so far no issues--I snug it down real good and check it every so often but it has held up to some good rough riding.

A couple mods . . .

Wife and son are out of town so I finally had some time to get to a couple of mods I have been meaning to.
First one is nothing too exciting but long overdue. Went from stock gearing and chain to a 47 in the back and Primary Drive O-Ring 110 link. Have only taken a couple laps around the block but man I dont know why I have put this off so long. The PO gave me the 47 when I bought the bike .



Second mod also isnt that big a deal but I am way stoked about it. Had this idea from the first time I saw the HDB top clamps.



I commute everyday so this is gonna make leaving and ariving so nice. No more fumbling for the remote in a pocket/bag or stopping and using the keypad.

I've had the dirtbagz number plate bag on my WRR for close to three years now.Bottom straps
around the fork tubes, top straps around my HDB hand guard bars. It holds all my tools, tire irons
patch kit and electric air pump. It stays put, is out of the way and easy to get your stuff in and out
of.

Michelin Desert rear tire

This thing is a BEAST, ie a big son of a gun, ie huge. It dwarfs the 130/90-18 Dunlop 606 sitting next to it. I do think it will fit and it doesn't feel all that heavy, but I will weigh it and report back. I think I'm gonna go ahead and mount it up tonight. Stay tuned

Fastway Footpegs...

As far as I know, the pegs are identical. The only difference is the style of cleats, i.e. 5 is a threaded stud with an allen key hole and the 6 are spikes. It sounds as though you will get both with this deal and then you can decide. I really like the Fastways as the pegs are very comfortable. The 6 cleats will be very aggresive. YMMV.
