seals

got some new seal savers in today....superfast & easy install with the new zippered model as i would admit, i wasn't going to pull my tubes just to install a pair! zipper has a rubber backing to protect the tube from the zipper...so far so good (just on the street)
i like the look & for $25 hopefully they help my seals last a bit longer! i havent zip tied them up yet, fyi

Seal savers can also increase wear on your fork sliders...

Has any one person ever actually found a functional problem with using seal savers? I've searched ADVRider high and low using Google and can't find anyone bad mouthing them except those saying things like "If they were better than regular foot boots, they'd come OEM". But I've yet to find a post saying someone had something actually happen beyond, "they looked like they're holding dust against the forks" before removing them. My seal savers always look they're holding some dust against the forks but they've at least doubled my fork seal life so needless to say it would take some hard evidence for me to remove them.

Has anybody here tried the Eddie Sisneros kit?

It's claimed to put out 39HP... That would be interesting to say the least...

That's almost 50% of the cost of the bike


If you want a 40hp bike and want to spend that much money sell your WRR and buy a KTM... that's just silly.

Not to mention there is zero warranty or proven reliability on any of that.

+1 I love mine have the shock sox type I only use them when trail riding then throw them in the wash after every ride work great. I'm gonna try the new zippered seal savers

I agree with you but there's a lot of people out there who like to tinker / modify and I'm curious to know what they think of it, or perhaps even see a youtube video.

Also it's slightly less than 1/4 of the price of a WRR in my country and a KTM 250EXC is about $12,000 here I believe.

Odometer jump???

So hopped on my bike tonight and rode off. Nothing new done to the bike recently. I looked down on my normal route to get ice cream and I was doing 75 miles an hour...in third. No way. Something is fishy. I scrolled through my odometers and noticed my 2012 WR with 2100 miles now how 3600 miles...

Any ideas any one? Bike runs good as normal.

Yep, holding down one of the buttons on the dash swaps it from MPH to KPH. Very easy to do and pretty easy to notice if you see it change.

When there's a coating on the sliders, like the new Kawasakis for instance, the accelerated wear is noticeable.
