what mods were done to the WR?

I bought the WR used from a friend of Bruce's who is (was) an enduro rider. Let's say he is a man who is a veteran (older than me).

The bike when I bought it was already ideally modified. The suspension was reworked by WER suspension in New Jersey. The suspension on this bike is phenomenal. I dont know what to say other than it just works.

Lowering link
Skid plate
Aftermarket FMF muffler
Power Programmer
Aftermarket bars
Aftermarket mini turn signals

I added:
Oversize fuel tank
New fuel pump
Wolfman racks
Ortliebs bags
Yamaha rear rack
GPS with TT mount

Ran like a champ including the long ride from Seattle to Oroville at 70+mph on the highway.

Only once on the trip at higher elevations on the highway did I have difficulty keeping up with the bigger bikes.

The WR250 is an incredible machine. Just beat the pi55 out of it and it says "is that all you got, gimme more".
