BHD...rough couple days for you. Good luck and heal well bud.
yes they do, although, for the f, you will need to have the spokes made, i used http://www.buchananspokes.net/
Stock hub and excel wheel? Custom Buchanan spokes?? If that is true, someone at Buchanan has to get their head out of their ass, cause i was thinking of making that exact combo, emailed them and they said they did not have spokes to match that. :huh
ya it was quite an ordeal, had to buy the spoke by the size not by the application, i had central maine power sports do the doing of i for me, they got the spokes from excel first and found them just a little bit short, seems the spoke mount point on an f hub is just about 3/32" further from the hub than on out r, called buchanan and they said yep sure no problem and mailed out a set for and f, mailed em back and said no, for an r, ho, we're sorry they say, here and mailed another set.....for an f! then finaly got what was needed, and each spoke had to be cut about 5mm and threads cut onto them a little longer then they were from buchanon. anyway, short tale told long, call 207-689-2345 ask for ryan, or ben in parts, and tell them that you need to know the particulars on the spokes that they got for todd's wr250r
I don't know about that. More like angry and extremely desperate.
what's going on here? the ttr line is all that is available for 2012?
They have never been listed in the off road segment but in the Dual Purpose section. You would notice that there are no WR450f or 250f in that release either.
Is anyone aware of a front fender brace/support to stiffen up the fender? My fender bag only has one tube in it and it shakes like crazy when hitting the rough stuff. Thanks.
Nothing under the supersports yet, so might want to wait a bit...
Dry fit my new rear 49t sprocket. That's a big ring! Do I need to ditch the upper chain guard? Looks like it'll rub.
I'm running a 48t and its got plenty of clearance.
I've been thinking the same thing. Maybe it's a good time to sit back and
Man if you were here 2 weeks ago, you must've choked on dust and fried your brain inside your helmet. I spread 10 loads of dirt in the yard that weekend and it was 104 degrees out. Rain washed a couple of loads away today!Where did you ride?
Should fit, mine does. If not you could snip or heat/bend just a bit.
Yeah, it was hot, but better to be sweating in my helmet that sweating over a bunch of loads of dirt
We rode Mill Creek on Saturday, then around the White Rock area on Sunday.
Another perspective on the drop-off next to the rock juting out in the trail......call me a sissy, I don't care, I'm walking around it
Sounds like you went through a lot of hassle.......I'll look into Woodies/Wheeling.......may even just buy a stock rim for ~$150 and relace.........thanks for the feedback!
With the damage to my WR I need to replace the stock bars. I'm looking for a bend that is a little bit taller with a little bit less sweep. With my rough measurements on the stockers it appears the Pro Taper Henry/Reed bend provides this. Can those of you with this bend confirm?
I'm also debating on sticking with 7/8 or going to a big bar. Are there any pros/cons of the choice other than the obvious bigger is stronger and new bar/hand guard mounts needed?
Regarding the ends of big bars, I know they taper off the 7/8 for the controls. Do standard hand guard inserts still fit or are mods needed?
Consider saving a few $$.......I have the cheapo Rocky Mtn "Chub Bars" on my bike and they''re fine......CR high Bend or ATV bend if you really wanna go high.....
Stock inserts will work on bar ends but you'll need fat bar clamps
