Bike looks pretty tight(good).
+1 So dirty.
I was going to go all black( hate yellow) on my DRZ.....but then got rid of it in favor of the WRR.
What mirror is that?
The mirror is made by Acerbis:
Hands down, it is the worst piece of shit mirror ever made. I didn't buy it, rather, it was on the bike when I bought it. It felt good to toss it in the trash.
Putting them under the bars works a LOT better, but they're really only good for low speed road sections.
I use mine whenever the day is going to be mostly tight trails and minimal highway. Hit a tree with the stock mirrors on and you're likely to break a brake/clutch perch.
The best mirrors I have found are these cheap eBay knock-off of the more expensive CRG models:
They're so cheap, I consider them to be disposable consumable parts, much like an oil filter. I bought 3 pairs of them and have them on both of my bikes (with a set of spares). You can mount them inside the controls, pointing down under the bars, or out at the end of the bars. They're rock solid and don't vibrate. If you bust one, then so what...you're out $5 bucks.
I also have since picked up some Double Take mirrors. A little more spendy $$ by the time you factor in the cost of RAM mounts, but they are very good (although they do vibrate an acceptably small amount).
Those mirrors only exist so race bikes can pass tech inspection at enduros.
ok i just pick up a wr250r this week and it has a immixracing rear tail rack on it
does any one know if the wolfman side racks will work with it are not
i have those on my KTM 450SX, just to give the impression that it is sorta road legal since I have it plated. I usually just look over my shoulder because I can never see a gadayum thing in them.
They are useful for seeing a headlight behind you, to make sure your buddies made the turn. That's about it.
Another hand full of reasons to go with the HDB system.
Running the OEM muffler
I have a set of these on my 400EXC - love 'em.

It's been running great, never a hickup. About 21,000 on the clock.
Interesting........ it's been cool to cold on the days I felt like the bike was down on top end power. I need to check mine
...I've been using these for a couple of years now and have been very pleased.
These photos from another forum are not of my bike, but show how they work:
Has anyone tried the Moose GYTR Radiator gaurds. Thinking about getting one, but there's no user info that I can find anywhere online, and also am not sure if the picture is the actual product.
Missed that point, thanks.
