My WR250R Build.
Hi all,

Here is where I am going to document all the modifications etc that will be done to my newly purchased WR250R. It may be interesteing to some, it may not be to others, you decide whether you stay and read on.

So first off, I bought a bone stock 2010 black WR250R. It only had 3700km on it and was only 6 months old, so still still has a year and a half of its warrant!

The first thing I did was fitted a wolfman enduro tank bag.

Next was fitting a Zumo 550 and a 12v outlet to power it.

Making up the mounting bracket and doing the wiring with fuse:

Getting into the guts to find some wiring:

Mounting of the GPS:

Final mounting point for the 12V oulet:

Next was removing the seat strap because it was annoying. Removed the bolts, strap came off, glued the foam back down:

I then started knocking up some pannier racks to suit my old RJays bags. This will only be a temporary thing until I get my giant loop.

Back frame:

Measuring and mounting of back frame on the right side. Using the pillion pegs for the front mounting point:

Using the hole above the exhaust mount for the top mounting point:

For the rear mounting point I used the stock number plate section:

Right side complete:

Left side top mounting using the helmet lock section:

Both of the rear mounts in and done:

I fitted a waterproof 12v outlet under the seat with fuse etc. This is used for a pump, charging phone etc so you don't need the ignition on like the 12v outlet at the front of the bike:

Sanded out the scratches etc from the exhaust cover and painted it flat black. Not sure if I like it or not yet, might go silver:

FYI... none of your photos are appearing, here or in your RR... "Bandwidth Exceeded, upgrade to Pro!"
