Have the low Seat Concepts on mine. Best thing you can do to bike.
Way more comfy and almost 1" lower.

Love my seat concepts seat! 10,000+ miles on it, including almost 7k one way from Maryland to Alaska on my move up here. Best single mod I've done for touring, except maybe the IMS tank.

Anyone ride an X a reasonable amount offroad but do the commute, supermoto blasting , trips etc and found a good compromise handle bar? I have to get rid of my stocks and not sure of the pros and cons of high bend bars etc. Ive searched and what I keep seeing is people using a particular bar cause "thats what I like"...but why? Im 6 foot so does that mean I "should" use a high bend? or is there more to it? cheers

Best trip ever!

Here's a little video

Beautiful country, enjoyed the video, and I like your ride-along Gumby buddy!

Great question.

Follow-up question, can stock cables handle all these different riser and bar combinations?

I've got a Sargent seat for sale in the Flea Mkt. if anyone is interested. I had to wait 8 mths for my Renzco seat,and this held me over nicely for a few months until it arrived.

So how do the two seats compare?

I'm no pro...but...

Buy a couple cheep bars, to find the bend that fits you. When you bend up the ones you like, drop some coin on a better pair.

Me being 6'2", normally run CR-Hi turned forward in the clamps a tad.

Just recently went to the KX bend, it puts me in a better position (on this bike) to go from sit to stand, without any input (push/pull) to the bars.

Just some food for thought.

If the stock bend doesn’t bother you, keep them, I think if it isn’t right you would know. I like a taller bend cause my arms are to short when I stand. I'm 5' 10" my son is 6' 5" he likes short bars, I like high.

Warp 9 Bearing Questions

Any Warp 9 wheel owner:

Without having removed my OEM rear wheel yet on my new WRR I have a question about the bearing and oil seal on the sprocket side of a Warp 9 wheel I just got. In the photo the oil seal is against the leftside bearing. Is that correct depth (about 3/8ths inch) or should it be flush with the rim as it came from Warp 9?

I'm not abby solute but the rear has two bearing cover/spacers on either side. A simple fit n try with the spacers should tell ya.

I have a another question for the brain trust... ;)

Would having a steering damper have helped prevent this crash in this short 30 second video? I barely clipped that tree and then ping ponged off another. :(

All I use my WR for is off-road riding and only on road to connect trails
