    Fat Bar Comments (Pro Taper or GYTR Top Clamps: For the WR250R, the right lower clamp, you need a shorter bolt. The lowers normally come with I believe 100mm bolts, but the key/steering lock gets in the way. For the Pro Taper Tusk Big Bar Clamp, r/s lower clamp needs either 75mm or 80mm.

    Here is a piece of information I need and it might be nice to have on this thread. I'm wanting to order the motion pro combo tire spoon axle wrenchs, but I can't find the front and rear axle size in the owners manual. Anyone have the front & rear axle nut sizes handy? It's for the R if that makes a difference.

    Thanks, I wasn't gonna do this at first, but there are some references in there I'd like to have at hand on ADV. If you see something, post it here and I'll take some of the deals and move 'em into the first posts.

    THe page numbers, yes--they're accurate, but they're not updated or linked :D

    If you do any data mining, post it or PM me and I'll update the first posts.

    I'm looking for what tool fits where stuff, mm sized socked, torque, whatever--if you come across anything.
