I've replaced my headlight a couple of times with this one due to rocks, wrecks....

Is the Baja one glass or plastic lens? I never got a reply answer from them on this.

I seriously think they see a none orange bike and see it as a challenge to pass them and then of course roost you. :( Paybacks are hell!

Nope--that's the relay arm (linkage to swingarm) bolt.

Swingarm pivot bolt nut, Service Manual page 4-56, is 85 Nm, 62 ft-lb.

Heading out on a trip to Oregon Thursday! Can't wait to hit the road. Took a short run over the weekend to test out the new saddlebags. I'll have a different tail bag on for the trip, plus a small duffle.

Price for New WR250R in Northern California?

If all goes well, I'm hoping to pickup a new WR250R tomorrow in the Sacramento/Roseville area. If anyone has recently purchased a WR250R in the Northern California area, could you please tell me what you paid for it? Having a ballpark figure to work with would give me more confidence walking into the dealership.

Also, somewhere in the last thousand pages, someone asked (I can't remember who) what should the dealer give you besides the keys, manual and title. Anything else?

I also I want to thank everyone in this thread. I've been lurking for awhile, having read over a 1,000 pages. The feedback, pics and video you have all posted has been incredibly helpful. Thank you.

Nope, I run the same oil in the car and bikes regardless of daily temps. I figure the owner's manual has seasonal temperature fluctuations figured out.

Lil' Wonderbike is up for sale

I'm putting the... sigh... WRR up for sale. Usually when it's time to sell something like this, you're sick of it, or really want something else. Not me, I still love her. It's just time to sell it. Pass it on to buddies who want to have the kewlist WRR ever (except, of course, for YOURS).

Will you be leaving the website up? As a noob, I found it to be a great resource.

Thanks for that, ArmyJoe. Yes, for the foreseeable future, the wrrdualsport.com website will not be going anywhere.

Stock taillight

If anybody is interested in selling me a stock taillight assembly, please PM me.
Only my Brake/taillight is on the fritz for some reason, so I only need to replace that section, but realize that might leave someone with a rather useless shell.
Thanks in advence, and safe riding!

Thanks for keeping it going. Has helped finalize a lot of decisions for me, and others I am sure. Best of luck!
