Haven't had a Yamaha for a while . . .

. . . but this bike is just too good to pass up.

Welcome to your new home little WRR.

I just love the bike :-)

Done the first 1000km on the bike, and I really love it.

Modifications so far:

Everything I didn't need was removed, then I added:

Flatland Racing Skidplate
Pro Taper SE KX High Black Handlebars
Pro Grips 798
Acerbis Rally Pro handguards

Besides that I've made a small stainless steel license plate holder/rear light protector.

The result looks like this:



Next thing on the "to do list", is better off road tires and probably BIB mousse instead of tubes.

Later I'll equip the bike for rally use, by fitting GPS and Roadbook - A larger fueltank and a Pro Moto Billet cargo rack is allso on the farkel list.

Thumb 3 years with the WRR has gone by...

I love the bike more than ever.

It has been modyfied to fit my needs (rally and enduro riding) - it's not fit for tarmac anymore but excellent off the road

To get more power:
  • "Highfive" airbox mod (removing flapper system and open up the intake).
  • K&N airfilter.
  • FMF powerbomb header and Q4 can - removing AIS and EXUP.
  • FMF power programmer.

Protection:
  • Flatland Racing skidplate.
  • Acerbis Rally Pro hand guards.
  • Acerbis front fork protectors.
  • 40mil head light protection film from Lamin-X

Uptimizing riding position/comfort:
  • Pro Taper SE KX High Black handlebars with Pro Grip 798.
  • Touratech 30mm raisers.

Other mods:
  • 14 L Safari fuel tank - better range and very good radiator protection.
  • 13/50 gearing - top speed reduced with 25% but perfect in rough terrain.
  • Michelin Enduro Competition tyres with BIB mousse - lot of grip and no more flats!
  • Yamaha luggage rack.
  • Touratech GPS bracket.
  • Moose Racing pressure relief valves (front forks).
  • All the stuff that I didn't need has been removed (indicators, rear fender, passenger footpegs ect.)
I think that's about it...

I've done some adjustments on the standard suspension that's all - the suspension could be better, but it's ok for now.

As this is a picture thread I'll better post some

These WRs are great do-it-all bikes. Picked this one up a year or so ago.

Bike is stock aside from some dual sport tires, handguards, and a skidplate.

Did a couple hundred mile drit ride out in Colorado earlier this year and the bike performed flawlessly.

Thought about selling it at one point to pick up a GasGas for the snotty eastern singletrack I ride around here. Have since changed my mind about selling it. Love this bike the more I ride it.

I've almost got mine TAT ready... just a few more things to do like Dunlop 606's and a Scott's steering stabilizer.
