Programmer Help Needed

I have searched on this thread, but I can't find any response to a question Kingwolf once posed (2years ago). I have a new Attitude Ind. FI programmer model 3.2 coming and wanted to know if anyone here has bought and successfully programed it for their WRR; standard Mods, FMF pipes,AIS & flapper removed. Just looking for baseline numbers to start off with.

Yes it impacts handling, it handles like the X. Whoot! Lower over all with lower front relative to R. This is a good thing, not something that needs to be compensated for like when simply lowering the R for a shorter rider.

My point is, I have sportsman set ups and tard setups, the 17s are the way to go (for second set) IMO and an easy swap.
I think confusion comes with the difference between X and R hubs. If I understand correctly, the front rotors are not interchangeable.

So, if you are starting with a WRR, which has the small front rotor, you can put on a 17" front wheel made with the WRR hub without changing the caliper. This means you will have a motard setup with a smaller front brake rotor than what Yamaha chose to put on the WRX.

If you are starting with a WRX, which has the large front rotor, you can put on a 21" front wheel made with the WRX hub without changing the caliper. This means you will have an off-road setup with a larger front brake rotor than what Yamaha chose to put on the WRR.

Some people buy the complete other front brake system with caliper, line, and lever. This way they can more easily change rotor sizes without bleeding brakes. Another idea is to have an "X" diameter rotor made to fit on an "R" hub.

I used to think two sets of wheels was the cool, flatbill, black socks, bro thing to do, then I found myself going down gravel/dirt with the 17's and commuting on the 21/18....purely out of laziness but the hassle no matter if it's 10 minutes or an hour just wasn't for me.

Not matter how you shake it, it will take lot of tire changes to match the value of two sets of wheels, rotors, chains. Just makes stupid financial sense to me in my older age....then again this hobby has very little that is cheap or that makes financial sense.

You can use the same chain as long as you use the same size rear sprocket, but for dirt, you'll probably want 3 or 4 extra teeth in the rear.


Bike looks pretty tight(good).

The mirror is made by Acerbis:

Hands down, it is the worst piece of shit mirror ever made. I didn't buy it, rather, it was on the bike when I bought it. It felt good to toss it in the trash.

Putting them under the bars works a LOT better, but they're really only good for low speed road sections.

I use mine whenever the day is going to be mostly tight trails and minimal highway. Hit a tree with the stock mirrors on and you're likely to break a brake/clutch perch.

The best mirrors I have found are these cheap eBay knock-off of the more expensive CRG models:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-Motorcycle...5bd253&vxp=mtr


They're so cheap, I consider them to be disposable consumable parts, much like an oil filter. I bought 3 pairs of them and have them on both of my bikes (with a set of spares). You can mount them inside the controls, pointing down under the bars, or out at the end of the bars. They're rock solid and don't vibrate. If you bust one, then so what...you're out $5 bucks.


I also have since picked up some Double Take mirrors. A little more spendy $$ by the time you factor in the cost of RAM mounts, but they are very good (although they do vibrate an acceptably small amount).

Those mirrors only exist so race bikes can pass tech inspection at enduros.
