New Rumble, thanks, but looks like someone else already sent you a PM for your side rack. Let me know if it falls through.

Anyway, for the suggestion about running the seat strap to the rack on the other side, I'm not sure if it will work... From the pics, it looks like a buckle will attach the straps together. Maybe I can buy some opposing buckle and extra straps which will be attached to the rack?

edit: I attached a pig tail for charger last time I rode it, but today on my way to work, my bike didn't start. I had no time to look into it, so I jumped into my car and went to work. Now that I'm home, I tried to jump start it. Before, my turn signals and display came on with code Er-1 or something with what sounded like a fuel pump and crazy noise like the buzz you would hear from transformer. I tried to jump start bunch of times and after several times, my head light came on. After the head light came on, I tried to use the start button. Well, it didn't work and head light shut down... Few more times trying jump start, it started! So I figured I will try to recharge my battery using different charger system tonight and see what the outcome is tomorrow. Hopefully it was just a crappy charger drained my battery and everything is all good.

I flaked out, so AFAIK they're still on the market.

So I watched the original Girl With The Dragon Tattoo last night, and was pleasantly surprised to see her riding MY bike. Well, it was an X but who's counting.



I'd ride bitch with Noomi Rapace any day.

Would a CO2 cartridge be enough to fill up the rear? Do you also carry a little pump - like a MB one? I have to figure out how I'm going to carry my stuff on day rides out of here.

I would stick with the tradition/proven pump. Sometimes the cartridges don't work, or you have a small leak that needs just a little bit, and a couple of times I've seen replacement tubes pinched..... You can run out of c02 but you can still pump by hand with a MB one.

...no, but I was thinking yesterday I should carry a hand pump since I didn't bring my kit bag.
I'm sure the right one would fit in the small tube.
I have Trail Stand , and 2 irons in there.

I had a front flat 2 weeks ago, CO2 was worthless. The stem ripped out of the tube.
No, didn't have the fender bag with me either....

I started thinking about it, and I'll probably just put one Wolfman bag opposite the Rotopax. I'll just bring my compressor.

I love CO2 cartidges. One will get you enough psi to get where you need to go.
Not enough for a car but plenty for a bike.

That doesn't surprise me at all!
Our little bike is so much bigger than you'd think when it comes to all round abilities.

good location for hand-pump?

Please forgive the cross-forum post (this is also in Equipment):

Has anyone found a creative way of mounting a bicycle pump on a WRR/X? I bought a Blackburn Airstik dual-action pump to allow me to air-up when back on pavement, and to fix a flat. It's lighter and simpler than the electric pump I usually carry (& I haven't wired up a 12V socket on the WWR yet).

It looks like a quality piece, and came with a decent-looking mounting bracket, designed to go behind a bicycle water bottle basket.

I don't use hard luggage, and I don't see any obvious places on the WR250R that won't expose the pump to mud, rocks, and damage.

I thought about the handlebar brace, and the front fender, not wild about either. The rear rack could work, not the cleanest solution, and awfully exposed.

Photos and / or solutions would be welcome.

How 'bout putting it in a tool tube, like RapidDog has on his bike? Don't know if those tubes will accommodate the length of the air pump.

Go get a tool tube or go make one. Hardware store abs pipe glue one end cap and glue a screw cap on the other. Gear clamp assembly to bike frame wherever you like then. Want to carry more. Make out of bigger abs. I plan on doing this to mine just for my tent poles.
