    Does anyone know which universal front fender I should look for to replace the 2 pc unit? I know OTR makes one but shipping over here is more than the part.

    Hello,

    just joined the site and thought I´d share some photos of my ride.

    This is a 2005 model which I bought in february last year(2013). Since then I´ve added ca. 10.000 km to the clock in all kinds of terrain here in Iceland with no problems. I even took the ferry over to Denmark for what I called "The very short way around Scandinavia" :)

    This photo is from the West-Fjords of Iceland this summer. Vaðalfjöll-mountain in the background.

    Gravel- and dirtroads allt the way. :)

    Last holliday me and som friends was going to PortoSeguro (650km) when my motorcycles chain had broken. At that moment i was overpassing a truck.I had a lot of luck because the chain didnt lock the wheel.
    At first the chain had damaged the swingarm and the bolts of the sprocket.
    On the next city we changed the chain to start the trip again but in about 50km we stoped on the gas station where i saw the oil leaking.
    that was the finish of my trip.
    the mechanical said that the engine block had cranked.
    the chain had about 5000km and i used to lubricate constantly.
    Sorry for my bad english.
    Ill post som pictures soon.

    it can be quite close to the pipe..
    i have a MM system & had to put
    a cable tie on it to hold it from
    hitting the pipe just to be safe...

    I don't have any trouble with clutch cable. Ride like that about two years.

    The forks are from a YZ450F '09, twin chamber 48 Kayaba. I´ve put .54 springs, new seals and inner and outer sliders?? (english is not my first language, sorry) and SAE 15 oil, but the forks were very stiff, so a suspensión expert revalved them, put SAE 5 and now work ok.

    Talking with the suspension guy, he told me that twin chamber forks are stiffer than normal forks so, if I had to choose one I think that normal forks for dual sport are better.

    Cheers.

    kool.... did you shorten the travel ?
    I have Showa twin chamber units in mine "CR250".. done what you have but also shortened the travel to 240mm as 300mm of travel on a bike with 230mm of clearance under the bash plate dosn't work... had to shorten 3 sets of springs before I got the sag correct "close"
    MX valveing stiffens the forks to early in the stroke for jumps etc.. So revalveing for a softer more complyant stroke works better.. not as soft as it could be , but I didn't want it to wollow around while cornering on the road.. Also has a Ohlins 46DR1 shock in the rear...

    Hi Pete-NZ! I dindn´t shorten the travel.

    When you say that this bike has 230mm of ground clearance, is this in stock trim? I´ve just measured mine from bashplate to the ground and I have 305mm in front and 295mm on the rear of the bashplate.
    YZ forks are 50mm longer than stock forks, if I remember well, and I´ve put 5mm shorter dogbones to raise the rear 25mm.

    Also my basplate is modified to go as near as possible to the engine.

    Now I´m working 500km from home, but first thing to do when I come back home is buy a new shock, maybe Ohlins maybe Wilbers or Hagon.

    Cheers.

    Yes of course........ I have lowered mine 40mm to make
    it a bit easyer to handle on uneven ground/river crossings..
    I have short landing gear...

    I also have a WR/YZF450 Rekluse EXP2 Auto clutch in mine.

    I have seen inside a Ohlins & Hagon shock... Hagon are just plain NASTY
    compaired to a Ohlins... But I surpose thats why they are a little over
    half the prise of a Ohlins.. Hagon would still be better than the rubbish
    Yamaha have put in the bike...
    Nitron shocks seem to be very good & at a good prise...
