Looks like you might have hit some of that awesome rain in Utah Tom!
That Rydnseek just can't get enough. Two days in Moab, two days in Hanksville, a quick wash job with a garden hose on Friday & he was off to Ogden. The guy is an animal!!
I pick my WR250R up on Tuesday and my question is about switching out tanks with the drop down wings. What mod is done to the fuel pump to get to that fuel in the lower R/L wings of the bigger desert tanks, because pics of the fuel pump show it will only draw from mid point? Tank suggestions welcome.
We ended up sticking mostly to pavement, but I was on the lookout for you guys. I don't think we ever crossed paths though. We did go through Hanksville and had lunch at Blondies, then ended up in Moab on Tues. night (where it rained somemore), and headed home on Wed.
Capitol Reef is pretty darn awesome when it's raining!
Got out for a morning ride yesterday with two of my kiddos......first ride with Jarrett in ~12 months.....last ride with him for for another 6-8 months (?)
That looked like the perfect day!
The wash job was behind Blondies!
She makes a mean hot cocoa and cheeseburger!
The Safari tank comes with a secondary fuel pump built into the tank. You will need to run a T into your vacuum line to the airbox door to activate it. Tank comes with all the parts.
Couple pics of Moab, Kane Creek Trail. About 42 miles round trip from town, over 6 hours & not reccomended for riders over 70!

I have mine mounted like a set of panniers with a 2 gallon fuel container on one side and the tool kit mounted on the other. I use the L-Shaped brackets bolted to my rear rack (on a Husky TE610) with the locking hardware. Only issue I find with the tool kit is it is not water proof so it fills up with water and rusts any tools you may have in there. I drilled a hole in the bottom to let water drain out instead of getting trapped in there. It would be nice if they made a water proof version (and a smaller 1 gallon size).
Those guys are right around the corner from me and I STILL haven't made time to go take a look/ride at this setup.
Take a camera.
That looks totaly useless and unrideable. I WANT ONE.
super awesome, Chris!
Seems odd that they can run boost on an engine with such a high compression ratio, but they have supposedly really beat on the thing for quite awhile and it's staying together running pump gas premium. Not pinging itself into oblivion. Not wasting the transmission.
I wonder what the kit costs?? Some people say they "think" it is about $2,000. Anyone know?
Guess I'd have to come up with a right side crash bar to protect it offroad...
Back to seriously, I wonder how clutch dust in the oil affects the typical turbocharger center "floater" bearing? Increased OCI's due to this? Inline filter?
p.s.: I'd say the turbo experience (octane requirement) fairly well proves a point HighFive made that in stock config naturally aspirated, the bikes probably won't be hurt with occasional regular unleaded.
I have just finished the ride report from the trip that my brother Apostle2 and I took to the Silverton and Taylor Park areas of Colorado. We did the ride about a month back but work has delayed the writeup. Click on the "Two Brothers....ride Colorado" link in my signature and thanks in advance for reading.
Does anyone out there transport their R² in the back of their pickup? Specifically I'd like to know if the R² fits within the bed with the gate up WITHOUT having to cock the bike sideways. Or put another way, will TWO R²'s fit within your pickup bed? Please tell me what truck you have.
(I'm planning on getting a new pickup when I go back to the USA but I will not have a lot of time to do 'on the ground' research, hence the question)
BTW. GREAT THREAD here. Thanks to all for such useful info.
That would completely depend on the truck, now wouldn't it?
8' bed = straight in tailgate up.
6' bed = straight in tailgate down, or cocked at an angle with the tailgate up.
