Thanks for the info though..I'll check it out.
Pretty sure the the other end of the rod that the cam mounts to goes into the TPS so if it's not perfectly inline it will bind a bit.

Took quite a bit of fine tuning with a hammer and a socket extension to get rid of the bind and get the TPS numbers within parameter.
That link dead? Just brings me to the idex.

Seat Concepts-Materials and Pics?

I did a nice 280 mile day yesterday on my WRR, a mix of gravel and nice twisty pavement. That ride made me decide it's tiem to do something about the 2x4 Yamaha refers to as a seat. Based on all the great reviews here, I want to order a Seat Concepts cover and pad...but am am undecided on which material to go with. I'm leaning towards the "gripper" top and blue sides from an appearance standpoint...but how grippy is the gripper? I do like to be able to slide around a bit. Thoughts?

Thanks!

Happy with the conventional cover on mine... I have a grippy cover on another bike and don't like it.

I have the grippy gripper SC cover.
You can still slide around a bit but it is pretty grippy. It's almost like a rubberized/vinyl pebbly cover affair.
If you like to slide forward easier the CF pattern is pretty good. Had that on an other bike and liked it alot.

Did 250 miles on my Seat Concepts (Blue sides, gripper top). The seat was soft enough that my rear didn't get sore until the last 50 miles or so. Before the seat, it only took about 70 miles. The bigger problem was the heat (High 80's), making things "Uncomfortable" down below. I think the gripper seat made things worse as sliding forward and backward caused friction on the inside of my pants vs. the outside sliding on the seat. But other than riding in the heat, it's been great.

FYI - I don't think the blue in the Seat Concepts matches the Yamaha Blue enough. If I were to do it over, I would get all black and skip the Gripper, especially in ID.

I did a 12 day 4,000 mile trip and I can highly recommend the Renazco tall seat

Cool2 Clutchism

I'm considering getting a Barnett set of plates (kit) since I'm starting to get really pissed at the lack of clutch control. The lever engages way at the top (lever out) now. I've adjusted and lubed every which way, and the bike has just about 2K on it.
I've got about 1K on the oil so maybe I should swap it out and see...
I do have bar risers but the clutch seems to have enough slack though.
Makin; me cranky. !!!

There is an adjustment screw right on the clutch lever that will allow you to adjust it to engage wherever is the most comfortable for you.

Too far out? Loosen the cable by loosening the lock nut (the big one) and screw in the center piece a few turns. That will effectively loosen the clutch cable, bringing the engagement closer to the bar.

Ims 3.1

Just added an IMS tank that came in the mail today, and it looks pretty good. I notice that it is about 1" wider than the stock tank where my knees are. It feels strange since I am so used to the old tank setup. Anyone else notice this?

What color tank and who did you order from? I have one on order but it appears to be back ordered.

2 fingers? Clutching

My xr and wr are the same in that regard. I used to use my whole hand on the lever. 2 finger clutching made a world of control difference... It took a while to get used to doing it. Maybe you already use 2 finger clutching?? I think they are designed for 2 finger clutching, because when the clutch completely disengages there is room for 2 fingers gripping the bars

Oil won't change it... tried that in the xr.

It's a short throw clutch, and it always will be, its a leverage thing... I must have forgot to attach the quote
