    I used motion pro for a longer clutch cable, which ended up being 21.49 USD shipped.

    Nah, it's not loud, at least I don't think it is but YMMV :D. I think the difference is about 3 or 4 db between the two, but the quiet insert supposedly gets you below the 96db level the DNR and some riding events require.

    Good to know. What's the minimum needed to run aftermarket exhaust?
    • remove AIS - get block off plate
    • remove EXUP - get servo emulator
    Not going for power, mostly for weight savings and to clean up the bike a bit. Wondering if exhaust temps will drop a bit too, been feeling the heat on my leg. Have stock air box with No Toil filter

    After removing the cat from the stock pipe my exhaust temps dropped 100 degrees measured at the cat location.
    Leave the exup in and get a programmer. Not required but helpful.

    You only need to remove the AIS if you're bothered by loud popping on deceleration (I was).
    You only need to get a servo emulator if you're bothered by error code 17/18 on the dash (I'm not).

    I remember buying a longer clutch cable from totallyTTR, uk website. It was made by Venhill.

    It is fairly loud. Mostly only on the street since you're more often at WOT. I did add the quiet insert mentioned, but it's still louder than I'd like. My friend's Q4 is a touch quieter than this set-up.

    Hmm. So even if I go Q4, expect it to be considerably louder than stock. Does friend's Q4 have an additional silencer or could his be quieter? I'm still interested. Can you guesstimate shipping to 55406?

    $140 should cover it all. It's in good shape.
    His Q4 does not have any additional inserts besides the std. screen. I'd say with the insert, the powercore is just barely louder than the Q4 and at anything other than heavy on-road throttle very similar.
    $170 and I'll include the quiet insert.

    Does anyone know if there was a dealer/promo banner for the wrr? If so I'll stay on the hunt and if not I'll quit wasting my time.

    Seeking garage swag, eh? I've never seen one but that doesn't mean there wasn't one. If one isn't on Ebay then they probably don't exist!

    I was looking for longer ones. I didn't see that mentioned on the webpage you linked to. Am I missing something? How much longer is 05-0424?
    When I contacted Motion Pro about cross compatibility they replied:

    Cables are application and component specific.


    We are unable to confirm compatibility to another model’s cables at this time.




    Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

    I have researched the Venhill cables and may go with those, but in the meantime sourced Motion Pro part #05-0389 locally, which they do say is the OEM replacement.

    It is 05-0424 and is 2" longer. You can find it listed on their site for the bike as well, and I can confirm it does work

    Thanks!
    When I entered wr250r into their search engine, nothing came up!
    Now, longer throttle cables anyone? (Apart from the Venhills, which I may do anyway.)

    Pick cables from the menu at motion Pro website and put in your year/brand/type at the black vinyl cables and it will come up

    This is longer, but don't know by how much

    Yes! Need something for the wr to feel like its at home (the 950 is not mine, just have a buddy I'm helping do some maintenance).

    Can anyone confirm if a 14t front sprocket fits with the stock case saver? And does anyone know where to pick up a cheap 14t?
