Good point!

Basically one of the reasons I did this.

When you look at my Dyno plot the A/F ratio lies between 13.2 and 13.8 through the RPM range with an overall average of 13.4.

If you look at the FMF Dyno runs in my previous post the A/F ratio runs between 12.0 and 14.0 at the best setting. In his write up he even states that there was not much they could do to tighten that up that range with the FMF programmer.

There's a ton of them on eBay. I bought some anodized ones for my Scrambler that were identical to Pazzo levers from China for about $30 delivered. Those in the link are more expensive, but if you do a little searching I'm sure you can find something.

If you get some, keep us (me!) updated.

Now I have a question for peeps. Anyone order anything from Eastern Beaver? I ordered the 3 circuit solution from them on the 7th. I waited a couple of days and I got no contact from them at all until I sent an email asking if they even got the order, they replied "got it - thanks", then since then (10 days ago) no communication whatsoever. I keep hoping it'll just show up in the mail, and I hate bothering people if they're really busy. It really bugs me when retailers don't communicate.

I've had excellent service from him over the years. Have a 3CS on my WRR and I was so happy with it I just installed another one on my 800GS. He makes these up as orders come in and he could just be out of some component right now. It's a one-person operation. And he's in Japan although he's a fellow Canuck. His stuff is top-notch, well worth a bit of patience and a wait. Dunno what the delay is, but I suspect he prefers to work on orders over answering emails. Just one happy customer's 2.

That's all I need to hear, so I'll be patient. Thanks.

My lovely wife rides (my) stock height WRR.

She's got a 32-33" inseam though.... 5-11.

Naturally, I can't find a single picture if her on it now...

Dude, seriously, now you are just spending money to spend money.

The brake and clutch levers? Really? Really?

This is awful advice.

You don't know this guy, the riding he does, his expectations, his skill level, or 1000 other things that need to align to make a "perfect" bike for him.

The 800 GS is night and day different than the WRR, designed for a different application. A lot of guys that have a WRR as a small bike also have some sort of bigger bikeand each fills a nice niche with a little overlap.

My advice to you - and I'm not trying to be a dick here - is STFU with the advice. You've owned a WRR for what, a month, and you are already the end all be all of knowledge relating to the bike? How about you ride it a while, figure out what works for you, and then if asked specifically about something that you have firsthand knowledge of, you speak up. Otherwise you're like a virgin telling a group of porn stars how to fuck.

Cheap is sometimes good.

I was on a ride with a BMW X-country the other week. When his clutch lever 'died' we managed to modify my spare Yamaha one and keep riding.

Replacement cost of the Yamaha lever (in Australia) $16

Replacement cost of the BMW lever $160.

It's coming from Japan (that's the "eastern" part), so be patient. They are reputable.
