The MSR bottle I bought 3 years ago at REI came with those caps. I guess I better keep 'em away from my kids.

You're not alone. I had the same problem for several days even just trying to reach forumotion.com. It was not a cacheing issue on my end as I tried different computers and power cycled my router. I couldn't access the site on my iPhone either when connected to my Wi-Fi network. Once I turned off Wi-FI it worked great on the cell network. I put it down to a routing error somewhere with my ISP.

All is good now though.

I have this one from Cee-Bailey: http://www.ceebaileys.com/yamaha/yamaha_wr250_450.html

Scroll down to the wrr version. It is similar to the one in your post. Maybe a little shorter. I like mine and feel the blast hits me tops of my shoulders and chin area. I ride long distances so very effective. Low enough not to be a bother in the rock gardens too.

You got a ktm oem screen? That sounds like the best deal out there, how about a link so we know which one you got? I have the Laminar lip screen & it doesn't do enough. I moved it up as far is it would go & it still didn't get the blast off my chest.

The taillight looks like the one from a US WR250/450F.

Anyone else broken the front caliper off the bike?



Caliper is perfect, it just took out the carrier (and 1 pad):


Broken Caliper Carrier:


Good news/Bad news; it didn't hurt anything else (wheel/rotor/me), but as far as I can tell, they don't sell the carrier separate , I've got to buy a new complete caliper assembly?!

Hopefully someone has a line on the caliper carrier itself... please???

Or anyone parting out a WRR or have a spare caliper/carrier sitting around by chance?

AIS Removal

Hi all,

I 've done the air box mod. Just wondering if removing AIS is worth it if keeping the original exhaust.
Also , do you lose mpg's with this removal?

Thanks
