    The piece fits over the shaft. Nut goes on. Tab on side folds up so nut can't move.

    Was the Ducati a dry clutch? If it was, I would think that it would extend the oil change intervals due to not having clutch plate wear end up in the oil, same as when some bikes have separate oil for engine and clutch.

    Not sure---but clutch residue shouldn't affect viscosity performance etc--what I was trying to say was that modern oils are really far superior to the stuff that was out there 10-15yrs ago--and simply maintain their performance and grading for much longer--anyway--I don't think its worth getting into another oil debate--we all change the stuff more regularly than need be I'm sure.

    Hello all, i just purchased a 2008 Wr250R and it has an EFI tuner attached to the battery. I assume its not factory. Can anyone tell me what its all about?

    My googlefu is letting me down tonight. What is the recommended fuel pump to carry, in case factory fails on the road? HFP-389? Thanks

    The one that they call “Long”. It is shorter than the oem lever. The XL is supposed to be about the size of the oem.

    Its likely an FMF programmer or similar. You can keep it in place and play with it or take it out and reconnect the factory plug.

    Lots of opinions on the best settings...

    Every pump is made in China, even the oem one when you take the cage apart.

    From what I understand the Yamalink lowers these bikes and they come with one when new. I got this bike used and they didnt have it. Any chance someone has one they would sell cheap?

    No it's not. I bought one and it says made in China on it. I asked and the guy said it's Japanese parts. Either way solid pump.

    The stock bike does come with a built in lowering adjuster on the shock...1 in if my old brain remembers right...the yamalink is an aftermarket part

    Does anyone know if the 250R and the 250F brake pedal are the same? Bent mine last week...looking for an aftermarket replacement. Lots of choices for the F...haven't found any for the R. OEM part numbers are different, but the look exactly alike. Thanks.
