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.

I use a notoil filter with stock filter cage.

Thanks, so it would need the cage? I dont have it as the K&N dont needed it.
Would the No toil filter cage fit just fine in the WRR that you know

I've found the Yamaha oem air filter to hold up with NoToil just fine.......and it costs less than the aftermarket stuff.

This question may have been asked already, but I could not find an answer so here it goes:

I found the OEM fuell pump in bikebandit for 302 $, and then came across this Fuel Pump form Cycleworks (justGustTanks) at almost one third of the price, 115 $. Anyone has any advice on this or other replacement pump for the wrr? In case that fuell pump works, is there anything else I should buy?

Here in Paraguay there arent many choices ( I believe mine is the only WRR in the whole country )

Thanks!

I did the swap with an eBay pump I got for $34.95. The pump is made by HighFlowFuel.com. I had read the posts I could find on disassembly, and just decided to go for it. My stock fuel pump still worked, but I had experienced a couple episodes last summer that made me wonder about it going out. Anyway, the swap went well, and the bike fired right up when I got it all back together.

Here's the kit on eBay (never mind the listing's main picture):

http://www.ebay.com/itm/161028028513...S:3160&vxp=mtr

I used the pump, o-ring and filter, but not the hose clamps and piece of fuel line that came with it. Also, the new little retainer washer that holds the filter onto the pump didn't fit tight enough, so I was able to get the old one off and use it, without fear of it coming off.

Overall I'm pleased with the job, and hope this new pump lasts me many miles. I have a trip planned to Utah later this year and I didn't want the stock unit (with 7K miles) suddenly giving up on me, leaving me no choice but to replace it with a whole new unit costing me $250 (plus overnight shipping, etc.).

Here's a few pics:

Stock unit:


New pump:


All done:

Seems almost worth grabbing one as a spare.

Would you class this as a roadside fix ... apart from the minor hassle of flipping the tank off, it doesn't look like it needs any special tools?

Well, I would never want to do this repair road/trail side. It is a REAL booger to get the thing apart, and that's with having "all" the tools I own at my disposal, a clean bench, good lighting, and no environmental factors making it more difficult than it already is.

That's also assuming you can take the tank off and save the gas in something else so you actually have gas to continue your journey in the event you do get things working again.

With that said, I suppose if your pump craps out on you and you do have a spare, and absolutely no help or transport within any reasonable distance, it might be worth attempting. You really don't have much to lose at that point. But even with my "experience" now doing this, I'm just not sure I could do it trail side, with limited tools.
