12 lbs front and rear on all my bikes on all surfaces. But I'm old and ride slow but I get great traction.
Enough about tire pressure.
So, uh, what oil are you running in your bikes?
Shell Rotella T, 5/40 of course. Are there any other oils on the Market??
No one told me I need oil in my bike...
Now you know
What's up with the Safari tank for the WRR? justgastanks still says "out of stock until June '12" :huh
Have they (Safari) decided to stop making them? Anyone manage to buy a new one recently?
You guys got cabin fever already & thanksgiving hasn't even come yet...
Exactly. Tire pressures are dictated by so many things....which tires, what conditions, suspension settings, rider style and weight, and even outside temperatures. Picking one set of numbers that someone posts online just seems crazy to me. Maybe as a starting point.

The numbers I posted above are a starting point based on the Yamaha factory recommendations for the factory TW301&302 trailwing that are OEM on the WRR. They have the same 33psi Max Load as the Kenda 270 we were talking about. So for street I run around 28-29psi rear(which is 4-6psi under max that I alluded to above to allow for heat expansion) 22psi front for a Loaded WRR and My 240lbs. others will be less/ or more. I am just changing out the front OEM original @ 5500miles. The rear lasted to about 4800miles. Mostly hard road and gravel roads of East Tenn.
I listed my Seat Concepts Seat (complete with stock seat pan) in the flea market if anyone is interested.
I tried searching the thread, but to no avail, so thought I'd ask.
Have a 2008 WR250X. Love the thing; keep intending to buy dirt wheels and make it a semi-R, but money keeps getting in the way.
I've been having a coupleof battery issues lately -- I suspect the battery is weak after the second time it dropped. Didn't think it was a huge issue, until this last time.
Battery was dead. Charged it, started the bike, and the speedo was registering 3 or 4x my actual speed. (And, yes, the odometer clocking along merrily with it). Figured it had to be electrical, but decided to drop the battery 'just in case' it'd magically fix it, but to no avail.
A quick google sees Internet evidence that this is not 'uncommon' (Couple of posters over on wr250forum, at least). Consistent low voltage to the gauge will, maybe, break it and cause this speedo error. The fix -- replace the gauge cluster :eek1. Called the local dealer, but they didn't have any idea short of 'replace the battery and bring it to us to run thru' the service manual'. That sounds expensive to me, and if it's just going to end up with buying a new gauge cluster, then I guess I'd rather start with that.
Before I go out and order a new cluster:
Has anyone here seen this?
Any suggestions on anything else to try before I just bite the bullet?
And, if I do have to order the cluster. where's the cheapest place?
You probably checked, but just in case, you're sure it didn't just reset to km/hr? (I realize that wouldn't be 3-4X, but I got surprised once when I accidentally set it to read km instead of miles)
This problem has been reported on the WR site (I saw your post). It appears that the problem occurs when the battery is drained while the key is on. If you pull up, turn the bike off with the kill switch, forget to turn the key off, and run the battery down while the key is on it FUBARS the head unit. I have seen a couple for sale on ebay, but I don't think there is any way to repair one once it screws up.
I don't know what the adjustment ranges is on one of these, but maybe????......................................................
Hi I've had one on order since sept 2nd safari tank that is and they gave me that same line Oct 24th when I posted on there vendors thread on here. I hope it is this coming week I'm gonna call them and given hell. It shouldn't take 2 months to get small parts shipped from alstralia.
BTW I ordered these bolts from Service Honda and they were perfect
Just curious, did you try the local Honda Auto Dealer? Parts like these are a lot easier for me to get from the car parts department--they're much closer than the nearest Honda MC dealer, no shipping costs, and they usually get them next day if they're not in stock. But if you're not close to a car dealer then I guess it's no big advantage.
