    Here's my mod thread: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=606931

    We've just pulled out all the emissions crap (AIS, airbox flapper, EXUP motor), which hasn't made it onto my thread yet.

    In future:
    Storage for my tyre levers where the AIS system used to be.
    Gut the exhaust (remove EXUP valve and the cat)
    Make up a little radiator guard (Safari tank does a reasonably good job, but it looks like the bottom of the radiator needs a little more)

    How about some fender elimination mods? Is everyone just hacking it themselves?

    I went for self-hack. I hadn't seen any tail tidies that incorporated a numberplate light, which you need here to be road legal.

    Rented a WRR in Montana last summer. Did 990 miles in 5 days. Gravelly Range and all over S. MT and Idyho. Very impressed but the bike I was on I felt had pretty weak brakes. And I just could not get used to the loading and unloading of the Wolfman

    Power Commanders are a hoot: The rental I had in Montana topped out at 80 gph but my version pretty easily will roar along at 95 mph GPS. BUT the replacement master cylinder and stainless steel brake lines have almost put me over the bars more than once..which is a good thing.
    Two brand new tires.


    Classic Pannier bags: (great tank panniers for $45.00 have 8 pouches. These are my second pair of these and are great and are waterproof in a downpour.
    Tank bag from Cycle Gear for $35.00...includes a see-thru pouch for my iphone or gps.
    AC charger for Geiber heated liner. $9.95 at Cycle Gear.
    Arm pit mirror does come in handy occasionally .

    no regrets with the [FONT=Arial, sans-serif]bike purchase. Ride it as my daily commuter. 74.5 mpg so far in 4,000 miles. Pelicans took total of 3 hours to think of how to do it...and less than an hour to mount [FONT=Arial, sans-serif]both of the [FONT=Arial, sans-serif]bags and they are hanging tight with some reasona[/FONT][/FONT][/FONT][FONT=Arial, sans-serif][FONT=Arial, sans-serif][FONT=Arial, sans-serif][FONT=Arial, sans-serif]b[/FONT]ly rough riding.[/FONT][/FONT][/FONT] Mounted with heavy duty fender washers on all sides and the cutting-[FONT=Arial, sans-serif]board acts as an additional layer of strength.[/FONT]

    Sorry - Do not know. Previous owner installed them. I have seen others
    with the same taillights. It does include a license tag light.

    This one is the most popular. Direct swap. (I have the universal version of this setup "DRC edge 2" on my wr426f)

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Yamaha-WR25...Parts_Accessories&hash=item2ec1272d14&vxp=mtr

    They are less strict about where your plate needs to be in ID, so I mounted a R1 intergrated tail light (mounts like a wr250r/x tail light, they are nearly identical) forget which year it is, (but it's pretty common as well) and just mounted my plate under the fender to the bolts which connect the rear fender to the subframe. I think it looks cleaner.
