This thread needs a WRX
Hey there Gargoyle, a couple o questions.
Did you mod the flash circuit for LED turn signals?? resistors? or flasher?
Which Renthal bars are those?
So, how is it with all the farkles?? How is it behaving with the FMF system without the EXUP?? Have you re-mapped the ECU??
I didn't have to add/change anything for these LED flashers. Just a straight wire replace of the stock ones.
The bars are the Renthal 7/8" in titanium color.
I rode 132 miles last weekend in a local dual sport event. Paved roads, dirt roads, state trails and knarly trails (mud, rocks, roots, streams, steep climbs, etc.) Feels great throughout the power band in all conditions.
No problems with EXUP off (same result as 4 or 5 other folks with the same set up.) I did not change the ECU. The FMF "EFI Power Programmer" is back ordered for those that have tried to get one.
So your turn sigs are all LED, do they hyper blink? or do they blink at a normal rate? Curious minds want to know.
Also just bought the FMF header and muff similar to yours, I should have it tommorrow.
I think the LEDs blink faster than stock.
HOOAH! Post some pics and a ride report after you get set up.
Was that the Berkshire ride ?? I was on the Cagiva Gran Canyon
More mods. FMF system. Pro Taper Henry Reed bend 1"1/8" bars. Zeta armoured hanguards. DRC Motoled 4 ea 586 flasher in smoke finish.
. . . but this bike is just too good to pass up.
Welcome to your new home little WRR.
How's about a '07 FW?
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.
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
Den ser bare godt ud, og jeg kan se du kommer godt rundt omkring på den :)
my 2008 on a six day trip
DonT - I'd like to hear what you've done to the bike specifically for enduro/rally performance... much thanks.
Awesome idea for a thread! I'm in!
To get more power:
"Highfive" airbox mod (removing flapper system and open up the intake).
FMF powerbomb header and Q4 can - removing AIS and EXUP.
FMF power programmer.
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.
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...
