Nice write up Tejas Nate!

SKF bearings = good stuff.
Just trying to represent us blue guys in a sea of orange...of course not doing a very good job of it.

Sent you a PM levain...
Unless you have the same two bros exhaust... that's my bike! The rack came from nomadic racks but it looks like they might be the same company now. The original rack was steel but the new one is powder coated aluminum. The extra bolt holes are supposed to integrate with Rotopax fuel packs but I have not tested it yet. Great price on a rack and has held up to the ocean weather of SoCal.
I broke one of the tabs on the rear indicators and I am not sure if I need to replace the whole thing yet.
Is it easy to unplug the rear indicator? Where is the other end of the connector? Under the fender?
Way to go Indy Great job on a really tuff SOB course. I have lots of respect for a guy that's not afraid to show his down side as well as his up side This gives new meaning to the term Barkbusters:eek1
The plug is under the left side cover likely need to remove fender to get it removed completely unless you've got the tools and knowledge of how to just pop the pins out of the plug.
Yeah, after that ride I cut my bars down 1.5 inches. With HDB handguards they are still 32 in wide though.
Thanks I will take a look. Any tips for opening those little plastic things that act as wire holders?
They have a u shape that locks the tongue in. Small flat tip to pry the u part open will allow the lock to be pulled out.
Love the rear rack, wheels/tires are going to be sharp looking!
I have the smaller size rack on mine
Nice looking bike. I got the small rack too.
Well I have one of those small rear racks that I picked up off of eBay and generally find it pretty useless when it comes to tying things down due to its unique shape. However it is pretty handy to bolt brackets to and mount other stuff.
So this weekend I was out at Holly Springs National Forest doing a shakedown ride for our upcoming CO / UT ride at the end of July. I noticed that when I attached my Nomad loop bag I had some extra room at the back of the rack and an idea formed.
I found this piece of scrap in my 'Scrap Adoption' pile and bolted it onto the rack with some M6 button head cap screws and locknuts:
Then mounted up a piece of scrap PVC:
Got some Krylon Fusion blue paint that comes pretty close to the Yamaha blue so I will paint it up and do the final mounting.
What headlight/windscreen are you using?? Looks sharp! Great bike..
i am a huge 'fan of the blue' but in this case, the rev happy/not much grunt down low motor is not ideal, imho.
i think you did about as well as i would have on mine.
thanks for posting it all!
Thanks, I'll probably end up riding orange sometime soon if I keep doing these dual sport rides which I'm currently addicted to.
I have no plans on getting rid of my WRR if I do though!!!
I decided to buy a set of MT43's for my Colorado trip here in a couple of weeks. I'll let you guys know how they hold up. I shredded a slightly used Dunlop MX51 the last time I was out there in a weeks time.
