I may be doing just this come spring. I may go with the bigger canister and fit an air pump, patch kit, and tire irons in there as well as the standard tools.

Shouldn't be too difficult to mount it to the same frame rail.

Kinda like this?

That is a great idea. Being that I have some aluminum angle stock and two tool tubes laying around...I think I am gonna copy that idea.

I have high hopes for this bike - I just sold my 640ADV and Gasgas EC300 so the WRR will be a singletrack bike and a dualsport bike. After I get some basic PM done we'll so how it works.

$10 Shipped, with strap.

If you are still running the stock whale tail you may need to trim it. Also check to make sure the tires not hiting when the shock bottoms out. I had to bend the angle iron out alittle.

Got one in the smoke color...

WR rear brakes gone

Went to test out the WR tonight, and rear brakes are gone, like pedal to floor. Feels like air in lines, no real feedback from pedal. Rear cylinder piston showing some fluid on boot, seems new. When I took it all apart, replaced that peg with a wider peg and had to move the pedal out of way. Could air have gotten in the line? Or am I looking at a rear master cylinder rebuild already? It seems to push the caliper piston, but not enough.

got it

Rear master cylinder needed to be bled. Took off the caliper cover bracket, and got to bleeding. Used only a tiny bit of fluid to do it. Sight glass is clear again. Not sure how the air got in there. Back brake is solid again.

I did a similar thing, but with truck canopy foam tape. Thick, wide stuff. But, alas, noise is still bad. Still considering removing it (Flatland plate)...I wonder if that plastic skidplate they have France (for the WRR) will ever be available in N. America.

The tool kits are prone to falling off. They are barely holding on there with that grommet and glorified rubber band!

FWIW..tool kit was very first item I took off bike. It would never stay on with the whoops. That was quickly followed by rear pegs and mounts.

Quick question about a 250x off road

Recently picked up a 2008 wr250x. It has become my commuter and it's a blast. Planning to do some big bend and hill country dualsport rides this spring then gear up for the a bigger summer ride like the TAT.

This is the question - should I spring for some 18/21 inch wheels or just slap some knobbiest on the 17s. Not planning to do any thing too extreme and will be riding with my wife on her xt250. For those that have done it what are the downsides of running knobs on the 17s.

Thanks

Largest downsides are slow steering and lack of tire options. I'd say they will work fine for easy off-roading like it sounds like you are planning.

I bought just the 21 front and put a knobby on the rear. It helps with the stinkbug stance also.
