2007 WRF and YZF chainwheels will fit the WRR/X

You'll need to order a set of tapered head sprocket bolts
fro the WRF/YZF as well when you make the swap.

The WRR stock sprocket bolts have a flat head and need
to be replaced.
Thanks. :)

I'm rounding up parts to get them going again. Only thing he should need is a clutch pack, right? No basket or springs, etc? I'm pulling mine right now to send up to them tomorrow AM.

Thanks,

Just send your whole basket and sort it out later... that way if it is a plate or spring issue they have it and can continue on. After they swap it they will know what they need to return to you without waiting on another parts drop.

Good luck, you are a true friend to take parts off your bike to send to them. Good on you

Sanity check: does anyone know if Sam is supplying GPX files for TAT routes nowadays? He shows that he has 100% GPS for Miss and Arkansas, whatever that means. I'd be happy to provide proof with a copy of my PayPal receipt to one of you inmates if you'd like to share your GPS routing for MS and AR. Heading out week after next to join Gabe of www.gabe-rtw.co.uk on part of the TAT.

They're just east of Young, AZ.

He opted for no basket. I didn't have an impact wrench to break the nut and he wouldn't either. We'll see what happens tomorrow. Another buddy is going to drive it up to them. Should be an all day affair.

Will keep everyone updated.


This was yesterday at the border, Lochiel, AZ, the official start. Long, HOT day.

It was great to ride with Mark. He's one of the good guys. (And Dingweed ain't bad himself.)

Someday when I grow up I want to ride with BigDog! Keep us in the loop, John.

To everyone that has made this possible, THANKS! Best bike thread here!

Now on with the show...
My pleasure Zac. Over 1000 pages and counting. Never would I have thought that my post about "the little bike that could" would have turned into this mega-thread. Good stuff!!

Ride safe,
NoVector

He does not provide GPX files. When he says he has GPS coords, he means he has the lat/long of the turns embedded into the rollcharts.

Thanks everyone. I'll know more in a few hours when the parts arrive on scene. Luckily, they have cell coverage where they are.

I'll report back with an update.

John

I said the same thing when I got my X. Its like riding a jetski down the road. Braking is not necessary into corners, lay it down as far as you dare and it sticks like velcro.

Good luck to BigDog and Dingweed, hope everything gets sorted. If I was closer I'd help...

And it is worth entering the routes in yourself as you'll have a better idea where you're going when you're out there. If you want mine though, PM me.

Re: Stock gearing on the WRr

For those reading this thread who haven't bought the bike yet, you may not need to replace the gearing first-thing. I got my bike in May with the stock gearing and enjoyed commuting, highway riding, and even dirt with the stock gearing. The most technical trails I got into were the open, rocky climbs common in Colorado on any 2-track or 4wd road. I had no problems with the stock gearing climbing or descending (I descend loose, steep slopes in 2nd gear). The only trouble I had with the stock gearing was above treeline (~11,000 feet) on loose, steep trail. I'll be changing my gearing now as my drive train wears out, but I was satisfied with the stock performance. I know the power delivery will improve with a different ratio, but there's no reason to freak out about the gearing immediately if you're not doing extremely tight, technical riding.

Until you load up with camping gear and try to go down the highway into head wind and find out you need to keep stepping down into 5th gear to hold speed. Geared down a little it'll pull 6th gear at highway speed no problem.
