2) adjusting the slack out of the throttle cable. Simple, & made a world of difference.

3) As I accumulated more miles and the engine wore in, I noticed that the jerkiness lessened. Or was I better at compensating for it? I don't know, but I rarely notice it now, and REALLY noticed it when the bike was new.
4) Adjust chain tension. If you have too much slack in your chain you'll get that same sort of off-idle snatchy feel.

Big bore tear down

Had to drop the cradle, but overall not too bad. Did discover a interesting crack, but I don't think it should be an issue. Its in a strange location, but I'll take it in monday and let some of my more senior engineering colleagues take a look at it before I ship it off to Thumper Racing. I think its a casting crack, but I'll find out for sure.

Or I might experiment with a rattle can and the plastic bonding paint to see how robust it is. The worst that can happen is it works horribly and I order new plastic, which I was thinking of doing anyway. The headlight really looks good.
Thanks Chad. IMS is supposed to be coming out with yellow plastics for the WRR. When/if that happens, I'm going yellow. I think after the big bore and yellow plastics, I'll officially be done with the bike Yeah right

Interesting. I'm thinking it won't be an issue since Thumper Racing will install a steel sleeve.

shipping there is kind of a rip off unless you spend more money though.

I love rocky mountain ATV/MC sprockets , but they dont make a 46T

Does anyone know if this steel sprocket requires different bolts? I know this has been covered somewhere on this thread, but I'm not finding it with my search references. My dealer is struggling with finding a 45 tooth steel sprocket for my WRR.

Thanks in advance.

I'm now using one of these (47):

Requires tapered bolts, which they sell also:

Machtig Big Bore Kit

Your bike doesn't look the same. Good luck with the big bore kit. We enjoyed riding with you in Colorado. We made it home safe & sound. We sure enjoyed Colorado.
