Took all the wind off my chest, just hits bottom of my helmet. So much nicer to ride 55+

safari install Q

Ok, I'm officially in over my head too with this safari install. I've searched for the info I'm looking for but....

Trying to make sense of the weird instructions and matching them up with the small bad photos....

I'm at step 4 : "Extract the pickup pump outlet hose and cable tie it to the fuel pump as all pickup pump fuel is distributed to the main fuel pump pickup point".

what do they mean by "extract"...and what do I extract exactly (pickup pump outlet hose...?)? The picture they give doesn't match up to what I've got in my hands.

Thanks to ChadX for his helpful photos...the clear pictures of his fuel pump have helped. At least I was able to adjust the fuel level sensor! Now if I can only get the tank installed at all.....The grainy b/w photos included with the tank aren't good. I have a feeling this is going to take a while. Trying to get this done in time for a dual sport ride on Aug. 13th.

Thanks

Hope this tutorial will help: http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/sho...43#post8279243

You want the fuel line from the secondary fuel pump tie wrapped to the side of the OEM pump pointed to the fuel bowl at the bottom of the pump. See pic.

I got to ride with the rebuilt shock tonight. Due to the bikes and rider experience we had with us.....it was not that difficult of terrain. I was able to blast some whooped sections and being I am here to write about it, it was obviously way better than the stock shock was.

Even so far, i'd say the rebuild was the best thing I have done to the bike yet.

I'll elaborate more this weekend, after I ride with my buddies on our usual difficult/technical terrain.

WR250R explores the side trips of the Cassier

If you're into scenery, wildlife and exploration, my first trip on my WR250R may interest you. I just started the RR, but I have a little over 400 pics to go .



Yes, that's a fishing rod on the Dirt Bag .

RR reader helper

Guys, off topic but....there is some tool for your browser that will allow you to essentially see only the posts by the OP in a RR.

Normally I like to read all the comments, but rtwDoug's RR about riding a HD on the Road of Bones is out of control. His second post was on page 10!!!!

Anyway, I don't remember if it was a browser plug-in or something in forum settings. If anyone has an idea, I would appreciate it.

Greasemonkey is what you're looking for I believe.

Yeah, I've had mine on all summer and it is great! With earplugs, the ride is quite pleasant on the highway. Nice gizmo.

Rear Wheel Rim Lock

I'm about to spoon on a Pirelli MT-43 trials-type tire on the rear wheel of my WR-R this morning. Because I'll be using much lower pressures than with the D606s I've been running, I'll also be mounting up a Motion Pro rim lock for the first time (the composite one that's blue).

Anyway, I just noticed that the wheel has holes drilled for rim locks in two places, one being closer to the valve stem than the other.

Any thoughts on which one is best for using a single rim lock? Intuitively I'd use the one that's more or less opposite the valve stem, for balance reasons, but maybe the one closer to the stem would better protect it from spinning the rim on the tube.

Suggestions from those with experience in this will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
David

I use these plugins from Bolty for Firefox?!...

not much on Kijiji or Craigslist

If anyone knows of a good, used WR250R/X for sale in Ontario, please send me a PM. Too much hassle to import from the US, so Canadian only please.
Thank you.
Jon
