I use one of these to carry my DSLR on my WRR and it works really well.

Thanks HWD. I looked at dirt-bike-gear.com just now - that bag is huge! Looks nice too.

The clear window on the Wolfman Enduro Carry-All bag I assumed to be for a number, since the number plate is covered. After reading your post, I looked again, and their site indicates it is a removable map pocket. I guess to use it, you first remove it?

The Wolfman Enduro Tool bag I bought is bolted on, so mounting should be very secure. And I like that one can so easily undo the straps, peel the bag away from the Velcro, and take the bag to the repair (or motel, or leave it behind when scooting around town).

My only concern with mounting a bag there is keeping the headlight unobstructed. I emailed Wolfman yesterday, to ask whether the straps should be expected to prevent the bag from sagging with 5 or 6 lbs of stuff in it.

Don't know Sewerat, seems like it would affect the headlight quite a bit, but I have not mounted one on the WRR, as my Tusk fender bag went with my DR650 when I sold it. Maybe you are a much better tube packer ( ) than I am, and maybe the Wolfman fender bag is lower than the Tusk.

On the DR650, the Tusk bag was slightly in the path of the headlight, and the distance from fender to headlight seems greater than on the WRR.

I had a few pics in a trail saw thread but had to post one here. I mounted my 68cc Husky on the back of my R2 . I have the Wolfman racks to support the weight. The box is heavy itself plus almost 20 lbs of saw. It was a bonus to still use my rear rack bags.

My windscreen has brackets that would be good for mounting a tool bag to. TCI has the universal front rack that may interest some.

The bike runs great and rips and today it has nearly 20k miles on it, so I think any issues relating to this would've shown up by now. I've never felt any desire to plunk down $250 for a programer since I'm happy with the bike as it is.

Somewhere in this thread around February 2011 is the how-to description of setting the computer, but at the moment I can't find it. Maybe someone smarter than me thought to bookmark it. But basically you're holding down one button until the display flashes with the key on, then another, etc., etc. until you reach the mode to change the settings. It goes from minus 30 to plus 30, so you have a total of 61 possibilities. To set it you just enter the correct mode and ride the bike, adjust, ride more, adjust, until you like it. Then it saves the setting when the bike is switched off. Mine stock was like minus 3 or 4 and I got the best performance and plus 3 or 4 I think. It's been a year-and-a-half so I don't remember exactly. Oh yeah, and while you're in the setting mode the speedo becomes a tachometer and the odometer isn't adding miles.

If I can find the access procedure I'll post it up later if you're interested.
+1 I'd really like to know how to set that also. I'm thinking I'd like to add a FMF pipe to my WR, but know I don't want to mess with buying, mounting and tweaking a programmer also.

Dual Star headlight guards

Has anyone found something like this for the WRR/X?

At 80 mil thick, this should be super tough, and cheap to boot, I am sure some of them either fit or can be cut to fit the WRR.

The 3-3/8" x 5" fits just right, as for a KTM EXC. I haven't tested it yet, but I'm sure it would do the job.

Anyone else messed up the shifter spring? Mine popped out, and now looks like this (both ends of the spring visible):



I messed with it a bunch, and could get it working properly for a little bit, but then it would pop back out. are both ends supposed to be bent at a 90 degree angle (like the right end is)? I know Yamaha doesn't sell it as a separate piece, but any options besides replacing the entire thing?

MSR makes a $26 aluminum one (http://www.ebay.com/itm/MSR-Aluminum...a8caa3&vxp=mtr) But I'd rather not spend the money if it's a simple fix.

Those of you with Warp9 dirt wheels with the X rotor... have you had any issues with the rotor getting hung up off road or what not? Seems pretty spindly mounted especially compared to the stock X hub. Thinking about going back to dirt wheels after winter, there's so much exploring to do just within a few miles of town...

Thanks HWD and Thorstein, those might be fine. I like that the Dual Star is a film, rather than a plastic sheet with Velcro tabs. To me film seems like a better, more invisible solution. 80 mils is 20-40 times thicker than 3M sign-makers vinyl you see on trucks and storefronts.

If I decide to put sheet material on Velcro, I'll probably do a homemade solution.
