Looks like one of the swing arm linkage nuts.

I removed the EXUP and the AIS... I just can't seem to remember where on earth this nut came from. Usually when I take something apart I put all the fasteners back where they came from so I don't have to look for them later. This nut is a mystery!
A 17mm hex, self locking nut, would fit the lower shock bolt. And from my search that is the only place on that bike that such a nut is used. The top shock nut is not self locking and the other suspension and swingarm self locking nuts have a 19mm hex.

First ride

Well, I just ran my first tank of gas thru my wr250r. What a blast!

It was a new leftover 2013, and it's just been sitting in my garage for weeks due to weather and my work schedule.

Now I'm in the garage adjusting ergos and tightening the bolt that attaches the front brake line to the fluid res. It came loose and I lost my front brake momentarily. Luckily I was in a parking lot moving slowly.

I've learnt a ton from this forum, and will be hanging around. I'm a relative newb, but would like to hook up with folks for rides this Spring.

Looks like your covered there. Maybe check up under the top triple tree to ensure that both the nuts that hold on the lower handlebar clamps are still on as it is the same size and style.

Been researching rear racks for the WR and like the Cyclerack. I had one on a TW200 and liked how well you could load it. My wife also liked it due to the fact she had hand holds while riding as passenger. It looks like it tucks out of the way on the sides (where it mounts). Any pros or cons? I have to admit it looked better on the TW than the WR.

I use one on mine and lay a two gallon rotopax on top.
, which fits perfectly. That is attached with velcro one-wrap straps to the bars of the rack. Sometimes a tank bag sits atop the rotopax with a net over that. Iv'e crashed many times with that setup and the rotopax stays put.
I don't ride two up, so I haven't tested it that way. It takes about 15 minutes to bolt on or off once you get used to it. It makes a nice handhold or pickup point if you fall, and protects the rear signals.
Not very bling-like, but real handy.

I had something similar on a different bike, with the rotopax attached 90% of the time. My passenger actually preferred the rotopax to stay on, as it became a sort of very low backrest. She said it made her feel better about "not falling off"...

which No Toil filter to use?

http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p/...=1392566400673
or
http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p/...Filter?v=10553

Do the wr250 need the cage on the 1st link or the one on the second link be just fine plus the metal holder that is already on the air box

BTW the bike have a K&N filter now, but due to the dirt that is like dust in my area I would need better protection.
