The Symtec heaters work great for what they cost. I am using them on several bikes. The set on my ST1300 now has 70K miles on them and they work great still. The set on my ZX11 has almost 50K on them.

The only failure I have had with the Symtec heaters is on my KLR. I was riding through some heavy brush in Arkansas and a branch hooked the wire on the throttle side and ripped it off.

I just a bought another set of them to put on my recently purchased WRR. That will be one of my projects over the holidays.

Headed to Harbor Frieght after work to purchase the low buck windshield.

I just installed a set on my RX. I would recommend getting their epoxy also. I didn't so I used expoxy which was supposed to be good to 300 degrees but after using the heat for a few days the grip is now completely detached from the throttle tube.

I've also found the low setting to be pretty useless so I might try to find a smaller resistor or just get an on off switch.

I'm not too worried about them being hard, and I welcome the larger diameter. The ProTaper pillow top's that were on it wore out kinda fast and I always felt like I was gripping onto a tooth pick after 30-45 minutes in the saddle. They should be here by this weekend I hope...

I filled the cuts in my swingarm with Quicksteel before installing the new swingarm guard. It is super sturdy now.




I finaly decided to remove the "boat anchor" tonight. This setup seems to work great. No CEL yet. Someone said something about getting less fuel with this setup. I am using the FMF PP, so does it matter?

Boogn1sh, I have mine set up like you show and I get about 62-65 with the attitude programmer set at 2.5,3.0,3.0,8.0,4.0,4.5 Gearing is 13/46 with GYTR pipe. Not a problem in my book, I do have the big tank though.

I also use the same rear sprocket you have and have yet to see any wear on it. Supersprox is very very good. Love it.

torque specs

Hey Guys,
I've been searching for a while, maybe I've overlooked...
I was swapping some wheels, sprockets, and rotors, and haven't found torque specs on this or other forums yet. I saw an incomplete list she-wolf had on her site; anybody have a fairly complete list of this info somewhere? Linky??
Thanks,
Brent

Speaking of Shewolf, is it too soon to post a list of the other sites now available that focus on the WRR? High Five doesn't check in too often any more and I'm afraid we lost BigDog forever. But they're all still out there somewhere on the interwebz thingy.

Eastern 3C kit...

I'm going to order the 3C pretty soon and was wondering if most also get the grounding kit. Also is the PTA1800 posilock the one for the WR?

I'm getting the 1 unswitched for my GPS, the other 2 for grips and my electric vest.

The Rick Ramsey site has some sick, sick mods.
I want to see more of that Athena big bore kit.
