I "felt" that the jumper made a bit of difference... but heck... dunno.
Would be nice to perform that test on a dyno.
What?

Exhaust and an FI controller are on the way, and I'm working with a local suspension company to get that done. Should be a fun year :)

Does anyone else race their WR250R here on the east coast? I'm looking for some other opporutnities to get involved.

Here's a picture from the Sandblast. Great times!

Buck great job at Sandblast! I just picked my WR250 a few weeks ago to run in the light class as well. I have competed in the car classes before but hope to run rallymoto at WV and Black River. Hope to see you there.

Nope. Who knows what'll happen to these once I start riding. I'm a very experience dirt rider, I may need them :)

I'm still deciding on what to do about mirrors. I put fat bars on so will most likely be going with HDB handguards, so I'm considering those too. The jury is out, so to speak. Can I screw a ram ball into the OEM mirror mounts?

Question about AIS and airbox mods

Hey there, I have been riding my WR for about a year now on and off the black top and I have been seeing the mods to eliminate the AIS and the airbox flapper. I am capable of doing it, but I am having a hard time finding why it is done and what the benefit is. Will doing these mods increase power or performance? If I do them will it effect any other portions of the bike?

I am just curious if anyone can let me know what the benefit is vs. just leaving it alone. Thanks

The number one thing I noticed after doing this was the throttle response, it's much more immediate. Before it felt like something was choking the bike especially when cold and at low speeds, now it's way more responsive. No difference in power that I can tell.

To make sense of the usual engine mods on any vehicle you first have to understand what you are trying to accomplish. First you don't want to just change the exhaust or just the air intake. To get more real power you need to free up the exhaust, free up the air intake and add a programmer for FI motors or re-jet for carbed motors to mix the fuel appropriately. Just changing the intake or exhaust just changes the sound of the engine and can actually cause engine damage over time by running to lean (hot).

That's how I see it anyway.
