    I don't know for sure, but someone took a pump a part to produce the picture. Looking at my new spare pump, it looks like popping three plastic tabs and being able to replace a small black hose between the two white pieces of the housing is all it would take in the field. If you prepared ahead of time I don't see why it couldn't be done.

    The Zuma 125 pump is an entirely different animal than the pump for the WR.

    Not as different as you think. Look at item 13 in the fuel tank schematic located here:

    http://www.bikebandit.com/houseofmotorcycles/2010-yamaha-motorcycle-zuma-125-yw125zl/o/m18967

    Looks pretty similar to me with exception of the Zuma pump having a float instead of a simple sensor.

    Your top picture is very similar to the silver and black part that can be seen inside the white plastic housing shown in the other photos.

    Krabill how about taking your dead pump apart so we can see what the actual pump looks like outside the of the plastic housing.

    What size did you use for the front tire? I assume the 5.10x17 is on the back.

    I've been running the shinko's for a few rides.. they've worked ok for me. I've got a 4.60 on the front, & a 5.10 on the back.. both 17" X tires.

    Here they are in moab this june:

    2 of my riding buddies in moab had kenda 270's.

    Here's a group pic:

    Hey rydnseek ...

    Those WR250X's look great with the knobbies !
    Are you using the stock wheels ?? Did you have to trim anything to get them to fit and run without rubbing ?? Since you rode that long distance to and from AZ they must work and handle great on the road ..

    Great pictures !!

    Thanks ...

    Yes, stock wheels.. the tires are actually rear tires, but fit on the wider front rim of the X.
    I had mt 21's before the shinko's. They were fine, but they were more aggressive of a knobby. They were fine off road, but if you had to ride a bit on pavement, they weren't as steady. The shinko's handle fine off or on road.. i pump them up to about 30# for long paved rides, & run them about 10# off road. the sidewalls are pretty stiff, & i don't run a lot of weight, so they do ok.

    The mt 21's rubbed just a wee bit on the inside of the forks.. not enough to trim them or anything, but they would touch now & then. No touching at all with the shinko's or kenda's.

    The grand canyon last month..

    Would you do it outside in the hot sun?

    Preferably with only the basic tool kit and at least 2 buddies standing around offering suggestions.

    Also time it.


    Thanks. :lol3

    Has it been mentioned that on servicehonda.com the fuel pump comes up cheaper if you type in the part number directly as opposed to looking it up? I think it was about a $20 difference. Haven't noticed that before on any websites. 3D7-13907-00-00

    I didn't notice that, but I will say that the "estimated" shipping was like $30 and they only charged me actual shipping costs when they charged my card which was considerably less than the $30 estimate.

    It comes up at $193 instead of $213. Service Honda still charged me the $213.

    When does a valve INSPECTION need done on the WRR or WRX? My Service Manual states that they need checked and adjusted at 26,600 miles but my dealer is telling me they needed inspected at the 600 mile service.

    Should I just tell them to skip it, or have it done?

    Your dealer is full of shit.

    First valve check is at 26,600 miles.

    They just want your money.
