sorry guys, but those anodized lever sets look like the last thing I'd put on my bike. So much stuff to break, the fluid reservoir hanging way out there in harms way, even more places for mud and dirt to get into. I'll stick with well lubricated stockers cut down with a dremel. Lightweight, easy to find and replace, fit behind the handguards, and cheap. If you really can't resist the urge to spend money, look into the asv levers, at least they offer some increased functionality and a great warranty.

An excellent question, viper770 will be along with some variant of an answer directly.

You're not upsetting me. This thread is a source of information.

When you start throwing opinions formed from a very brief ownership experience into it, it dilutes the value of the thread.

I generally don't post much in here, every so often I go on a spree and have like 4 posts back to back; but I read this for new replies every day. Lately I am seeing a trend of guys who have just bought the bike already modifying it (in frankly some absurd ways) without ever getting a feel for what the bike can do stock. Guys are also rendering advice on stuff that they really shouldn't be offering commentary on - because you have been riding for xxxxx miles or xx years doesn't mean you've been riding this bike. And that's what this thread is - specific to the WRR/X, not a general riding info thread.

Finally, any advice you render might be better received if it were presented in a logical, concise, well thought out format; devoid of "lol"s and run on sentences.

Fair enough.

Post an odometer picture and I'll eat crow.

Sorry, it was a joke. It seems that Meef knows all the proper ways to ride and spend money on the WRR, and you and I are clearly doing it wrong.

I heard they're surrounded by them but find them very elusive...
