112 link chain for 13/47 sprockets

I agree with that 112 links is right for the 13/47 sprocket combo.
The stock chain is 108 links, too short for 13/47 sprockets.
I just went from a 12/43 (stock chain) to the 13/47 last weekend. Based on other advice, I cut the new chain to 110 links. It fits but the wheel is adjusted as far forward as it can go. I'm toying with the idea of getting a couple of master links and adding a link to make it 112. I riveted the master and carry a clip type spare.

Until they come out with gold handlebars...
With the way the prices are going up for the 2011's they better have gold handlebars!

Plenty of used WRR's and X's in NE for sure! I saw 'em!

Some dealers really gouge for 'em NEW whereas some guys got 'em brand new for 5k or just under. Though that deal was a rarified winter kind of thing from fleabay.

craiglook used to be one of the go to craigslist searchs but they got shut down and now use this domain but do not search craigslist anymore. overall a major bummer but the do find a few bikes on other sites so it's worth using in addition. that's leaves searchtempest which is not as good.
you get alot of false results and it just puts each city in it's own box vrs craiglook just listing the bike in order of posting. it's alot more work using searchtempest because of the frames but i think craiglook got the boot because they elminated the frames.

Tooting my own horn

If you happen to run across the latest issue of Ironhorse there's a 6 page article in it about my TAT ride on my WR this summer. I haven't actually seen the article my self. I think this issue has old man Tuttle on the cover (booo).

So anyways, toot - toot.

Sounds great!

Here was my solution for a rally fairing and HID lights... big improvement...



Britannia Composites Lynx fairing and HID light kit

http://www.britanniacomposites.com/lynx.html

I love mine. The wind screen raises for on the road and lowers for on the trail. It is sweet and the lighting is incredible.

There was a group buy price on the WR250 forum. I will dig up the link when can.

Tell Ian that Mr. Fisherman sent ya

I hope this helps...

You can set up search tempset to display all results on one page, look under display options after you've done the search. It will then display them all as a google format though. I was bummed when the shut down craiglook, not sure why they did it.
