Tom, I have the stand (#17 on fich) and Bracket (#24 on fich) You welcome to them, both brand new. I don't have any of the bolts or springs. Sell them too you for what I paid plus shipping.

Let me know if that helps. Stand is $39.27 and bracket is $46.14

2013 fuel pumps

Has anyone noticed the 2013 WRR's have a different part number on the fuel pump? Yamaha has also updated the part # when you order a pump for 2008-2012. 3D7-13907-10-00 new vs. 3D7-13907-00-00 old.

I wonder if this means the pump has been improved.

So took mine out for a little ride yesterday, good mix of everything from hiway to single track and everything in between. Found some mud too.



Bike performed flawlessly. Me on the other hand???

Thanks so much. Will let you know. Looking at one on E-bay but the guys feedback is suspect!

FWIW it would take aprox 2X the HP to turn top speed from 71 mph to 97 with all other conditions being the same.

I used to ride freeway from Riverside to Anaheim hills with a mate where the flow of traffic was usually about 80mph. I was on a KTM690 and my mate on a pretty stock WR250R. Riding with him, his "real speed" would fluctuate between 70 & 80 ish with the throttle permanently pegged. His speedo was quite optimistic ("Hmmm... Why are all those cars flying by when I'm doing 85 mph!")

When a small bike is geared tall what it potentially can do is a pretty big difference from what it consistanly can easily hit.

1 more vote for the WR450R!!

In the spring I put new tires on my bike and had to adjust the chain tension once the wheels were back on... I set the chain tension within specs even though it feels a bit on the tight side.

I just noticed today I am eating into the rubber guard on the swing arm.

Should I just tighten it up more?

Make it a tad looser, not tighter. IMO.

I'm not really familiar with this issue... I assume'd it was during low strain the chain would glide along it because it was too loose but I could be out to lunch on these theory... so I should loosen it up?

I plan on riding some really rough stuff this weekend down in Kentucky at the Renfro Valley DS so I'll have to report back on how it holds up.
Indypup, I'll look for you at Renfro and say hey. I'm coming up from Atlanta with a friend.

FWIW
The sticker on the box of the one I just bought has the new p/n you mention (minus the -00 on the end)

There are a couple theories as to what causes the chain guide excessive wear, but too tight was high the potentials. Yamaha even changed the spec at one point, making it wider. Due to the swing arm pivot and countershaft sprocket not being on the same plane, a tight chain gets tighter when the swingarm moves through its range of motion...has no choice but to wear through the guide. Sticking links were also a potential culprit.

The Husky guys love these tires. I've seen a few mentions when I searched for WR250R, but no true reports. A lot of reports I'm digging up too are on the non DOT tires which I think is all they sold a couple years ago. The DOT series seems to be a bit on the newer side?

Blue, gonna torture test em' this weekend at Renfro. I'll let you know how they do. I've got a desert H/T on rear and enduro I/T on front

I though Yamaha REDUCED the chain slack measurement to counteract the chain slipping on the OEM rear sprocket.

running too loose is just as risky as too tight. A bigger rear sprocket helps the most, IMO.

You could be right..might be tighter. I never had a huge issue with my chain guide, so I never paid too close attention to what all the posting was about. Generally, on any bike, a looser chain is better than one that is too tight. One that is too tight will not allow the rear suspension to work the way it should, and will probably eat the guide as well.

Shep, as awful is it may be to find, you may have to search through this thread to get the right answer.
