Suggestions?

Does excel make rims that'll fit the WR250R?

Stock hub and excel wheel? Custom Buchanan spokes?? If that is true, someone at Buchanan has to get their head out of their ass, cause i was thinking of making that exact combo, emailed them and they said they did not have spokes to match that.

ya it was quite an ordeal, had to buy the spoke by the size not by the application, i had central maine power sports do the doing of i for me, they got the spokes from excel first and found them just a little bit short, seems the spoke mount point on an f hub is just about 3/32" further from the hub than on out r, called buchanan and they said yep sure no problem and mailed out a set for and f, mailed em back and said no, for an r, ho, we're sorry they say, here and mailed another set.....for an f! then finaly got what was needed, and each spoke had to be cut about 5mm and threads cut onto them a little longer then they were from buchanon. anyway, short tale told long, call 207-689-2345 ask for ryan, or ben in parts, and tell them that you need to know the particulars on the spokes that they got for todd's wr250r

They have never been listed in the off road segment but in the Dual Purpose section. You would notice that there are no WR450f or 250f in that release either.

Front fender brace/support?

Is anyone aware of a front fender brace/support to stiffen up the fender? My fender bag only has one tube in it and it shakes like crazy when hitting the rough stuff. Thanks.

Dry fit my new rear 49t sprocket. That's a big ring! Do I need to ditch the upper chain guard? Looks like it'll rub.

Should fit, mine does. If not you could snip or heat/bend just a bit.

Yeah, it was hot, but better to be sweating in my helmet that sweating over a bunch of loads of dirt

We rode Mill Creek on Saturday, then around the White Rock area on Sunday.
