Replaced the stock tank with an IMS 3.1, added luggage rack, added a Whelen strobe to the brake light, Acerbis hand guards, new grips, wind screen. I think that's it.

I checked to make sure the sprockets are lined up, and they are, but I'm still feeling the vibes.

And now for something completely different...

Operation GTFO 2013

I'm currently going to school at Ft Gordon, Georgia. We have a 4-day weekend for Independence Day and I'm looking for ideas for a road trip. I'm open to pretty much anything, because anything is better than spending the holiday at a TRADOC post.

There's one catch, though. Anything outside a 250-mile radius requires a formal pass with itinerary. To keep from inviting the man into my life, but still allow for some spontaneity, I need to keep the trip within this:



If you had WRR, a tent, and time to kill, what would you do? If nothing inspires me, my fallback plan is to ride the TET-S up to Deals Gap and back.

Wow, the top half of that circle is motorcycle heaven. Lucky you :-)

Re: my bent shifter:

I plan to bend out the OEM one this weekend, and assess whether I have any other damage. Then I'll order another shifter and keep this one as a spare.

Would it be wise to heat before bending? Or will that ruin any tempering?

Yamaha only sells is as an assembly and wants too much for it.

Thank you,

There was one on wrforum for sale for about $100. And there was one on fleabay as well.

I went with a ktm headlight for a year they work fine but are plastic and don't like high wattage bulbs.

I've read that the Baja Designs "Diablo" light will fit the WRR mask, and is both DOT-approved and only around $45 or so I think.

Thanks, this is exactly the kind of stuff I'm looking for. Institutional knowledge can be a wonderful thing.

A few years ago someone posted about a good replacement that they had found. A thread search might dig it up.
