Which rear-rack is compatible with Wolfman side rack?

Hi all, at the risk of covering old ground, which rear-rack is compatible with Wolfman side racks? I plan to purchase a rear-rack initially then buy the Wolfman set down the track. Naturally I want a rear-rack that I won't have to modify once I get the Wolfman gear.

Also, I have a GYTR muffler fitted, will this still allow me to fit the Wolfman side racks, is the GYTR
too big or anything?

Thanks in advance.

I know for sure the GYTR rack is NOT compatible. I posted the reply from Wolfman confirming this around 10 days ago.

Happy Trails site shows their side racks in a photo with a top rack of some sort http://www.happy-trail.com/Yamaha-WR...ck-WR250R.aspx

For the WRR, I like the Wolfman racks a lot better though. The Happy Trails racks look like they belong on a KLR, V-Strom or GS.

I used the Automotive Machine Supply rack, with Wolfman racks...and Dirtbagz.

Thanks Jon. I did not wanna spend more than $100 for a simple piece of metal, so that one worked perfect. Just have to buy your own bolts, which is no big deal.

Question for the group:

Who makes the best hand-guards for the WR? I just got back from Colorado and beat the hell out of my Zeta's and am looking to replace them and the levers. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

TIA!

Glad I didn't read this before I put mine on. Yes, there was a little grunt work involved, but it fits like a charm.

OEM tail rack and Wolfman side racks -

And:

Mounted with these:

I use them on my off road bikes and have never bent or broke them.

In my opinion, the best hand guards are made by Highway Dirt Bikes (HDB). However, they are NOT cheap!

I like my Barkbuster brand guards but then again I never ride my bike off road. If I was ever planing on dropping my bike I would buy the Cycra pro bends.

Bluhduh Tachometer Help needed

Tech question, anybody know the min/max RPM for WRR and how to calculate approx. rpm @60mph in 6th gear. I have 13/47 gearing and OEM deathwings. I'm trying to calibrate a tachometer I installed(I don't think it is running right).

I'm thinking about experimenting with some street tires on my R. I don't want to get a set of SM wheels so I'm looking for 21/18 tires. Anybody have suggestions for good and sticky, cheap tires? I don't really care how long they last, as long as they go about 5k miles or so. I just want them to be cheap and sticky.

But seriously, Cycra makes great stuff, and made in Ohio.

I want to say min RPM = 0. Perhaps you're looking for normal idle range 1450-1650 RPM. I want to say redline is 11,400. But, the rev limiter will prevent you from getting there. As long as the WRR setup on gearingcommander is correct, with 13/47 gearing 7K RPM = 60.1 mph. Should be reasonably accurate. Which is more than I can say for your speedometer unless you've taken steps to correct it.

The bike actually has a tach but you can only see it if you have the display in CO mode.

Here are mine from a previous post. I've beat the living crap out of them from Baja to British Columbia and they've never bent or broke. Bars have never bent with the HDB on.
