Yep, wish my legs were that long. Then I could ride a KTM..
The Bridgestone HD tube for the front is Bridgestone Heavy Duty Motorcycle Tube 80/100x21 and the rear is Bridgestone Heavy Duty Motorcycle Tube 110/100x18.
I hope that is what you asked for... I've had a few..
I've tried Maxxis, Michelin, Kenda, IRC, and Fly Racing tubes. I only use the normal heavy duty ones (because the super heavy duty tubes are a major pain to install)....
Of all the brands I've used over the past few years, I like the IRC the best. Very rugged yet still easy to install (I use only baby poweder)
110/100-18 will work fine in a Dunlop D606 @ 120/90-18
Kenda Tuff Tube is also very good, and would be my 2nd choice.
First High Five, now Crawdaddy, and BigDog still has the WR but has purchased another bike as well !! Hmmmmm!
Enjoy boys, its all good! Thanks for all your congtributions to this site and for answering many PM's from ADV'ers regarding the WR.
Like they said above http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p...ty-Motorcycle-Tube/bridgestone+ultra+hd+tubes
select 80/100-21 front and 110/100-18 rear from pull down window
For the price these are great tubes. http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p/44/86/176/864/-/39536/STI-Extreme-Duty-Motorcycle-Tube
Thanks all, for sharing your knowledge and experience.
I now feel much more confident in choosing some tubes to try withmy 606s.
Ride safely and have a helluva lotta fun doin it.
will a 120/90 - 17 pirelli MT 21 work on the back wheel? I know a 130 works but I can only find a 120 width here in Costa Rica.
Also, will a 110 width work on the front?
Crap...In the title, I meant to tell you this is for a WR250X
Yes, up to 110/70-17 front
140/70-17 rear so 120 can be used with resultant lower traction, but it looks like you want to go off road if your getting a MT-21.
I have a question for you. Last spring I cracked/broke/mangled the multi-function display on my WR. It still functioned except for the back light so I just left it and used it as is. I couldn't read it at night but that wasn't a big deal to me. Now in the dampness of winter it's finally quit displaying anything. All the leds still work but the display is kaputski. So my question(s). Should I replace it with a stock display or go with a Trail tech or Vapor tech display? What are the advantages/disadvantages of either? Will a new display show the correct mileage or will it start from 0? If 0 is there a way to program in the mileage? Is there a way to read this info from the broken display?
That's enough for now
You can program the mileage in when you get a vapor. You will also end up with a more accurate mileage count (eventually) and a more accurate speedometer (it is set based on tire size and within .5 mph of gps on my bike). As an added bonus, sprocket changes will not affect the accuracy of your speedometer since the vapor tachs read speed off the front wheels rotation. The stock one as you know will end up off unless you use a speedohealer to calibrate when you do sprocket changes.
Thing is, I have heard things about the WR not starting if the stock cluster is removed. See: http://wr250rforum.forumotion.com/t565-trail-tech-vapor-speedometer-tachometer
Im not sure, but if you need to have the stock cluster, I wouldnt even waste time with a vapor unit.
It's part of your Fuel Injection computer, and the bike won't run without it. If you buy a used one it will read the mileage that was on the other bike when it was taken off. I don't know if your local Yammi dealer has the ability to go in and manipulate the mileage like car dealers can on newer cars..... they might, but I would guess not.
And there is the voice of wisdom
Would having a power commander affect this?
The power commander won't have any effect on your problem. It just reads the data the computer is already sending out and changes the values per your settings, then sends it back out to the bike.
But can they? Just asking, 'cause I had a dealer replace the dash in my 'vette, the new dash read zero miles, I insisted it read the correct miles. They thought too that they could re-program it but found out they could not. They ended up getting another one from GM pre-programed with the right miles. Sorry for the high-jack.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>
Torque specs, Please...
I'm changing my front turn signals and with the new brackets, I need torque specs for the upper tripple pinch bolts. If someone could share those with me, I'd much appreciate it.
I'm installing the DRC 602 front and rear, with the new, smaller taillight.
Disclaimer: Use at your own risk. I think I know what your asking, but well, you never know!
23 NM per the service manual for 2008-2012 models.
Thanks. I found a thread where the torque mentioned was 17ftlbs for uppers and 23ft lbs for lower, so 23Nm is just about 17 ft lbs.
That's a pic of my bike with the big 4.7 gal tank. It has taken lot's of falls,and I have had one issue. On the bottom of the tank (both lft & rt side) there is a brass bolt holding the fuel hose that lifts the fuel out of the deepest part of the tank. I believe I knocked that brass bolt pretty hard on a rock going over a log. It was slowly dripping fuel so I screwed that bolt in deeper so you can hardly see it exposed now. It has taken care of the leak about 99% so I just live with it. Just thought I'd pass that along for those who like to flog their bike.
