is the counter shaft gearing different on the X and R models. Just did a wheel swap and it seems to have lost the snap off the line. I know the rear sprocket is different but what about the countershaft.

Thanks

Did you swap an 18" wheel for a 19" wheel with a knobbie? There is your difference

Laugh Lost my nut (axle nut, not a Lance Armstrong thing - HA!)

I was up in Bass Lake this weekend having fun/getting muddy........when I got home yesterday afternoon I noticed that I'd lost the front axle nut somewhere? (good thing we have 4 pinch bolts too!)........

Does anyone happen to know the Yamaha part number and/or size of the front axle nut?

Thanks!

I went from R wheels to X wheels. The change is a 43T on the R and a 42 on the X as well as changes in wheel sizes R 18, X 17. Just found the countershaft part number and they are the same. This bike is a riot to ride. The new wheels just make it more difficult to unweight the front wheel.

So you're saying it might be easier to wheelie a WRX than a WRR? And here I thought you motard guys were just hooligans. My R˛ makes me feel like a hooligan and I don't even try to wheelie.

They probably just skip the filter and crush washer.

Before the swap I was working on wheeling the R (was never successful but I was trying) but now that I have an X it seems harder, more of a front weight bias maybe?

Unfortunately, probably very true. I've been ripped off for "repairs not performed" very similar to that. I wanted to hire some of the PITA stuff out (not oil changes, other things) but decided to DIY out of self defense and survival instinct.

That's a good point. The angle the bike sits at looks to me to be lower in the front end with the X.

Also, my X had 13/42 stock gearing. When I put the big 17" knobbies on it, the rear knobby was a couple inches taller than stock. So I went to 12/43 gearing. Going to 13/46 or equivalent soon which is about like 12/43 but maybe with less vibes..

Point is, IMHO it'd be a bit overgeared with 13/42 and a taller knobby than the stock WRX slicks.

Finally, I'd put in 3" of rear sag. Speaking to Travis at Go Race, he's going to want me to run more like 3.5 to 4" of rear sag. That might change the front to rear weight bias a bit, too.

Though with the Revloc auto clutch and 12/43 gearing, seems to wheelie just fine with my skinny carcass on it. I have the usual power mods, but live at 7000+ feet elevation.

Good guys

Looks like Seat Concepts has received my seat already and is starting on it. Way quick, IMHO.

Suspension out to Go Race via UPS this a.m.. I over-insured it so it was a bit expensive. I figured if the forks get lost they could cost a ton of money ordered from the Yami fiche piecemeal. Shock ain't inexpensive either. Or said another way, it may be a "'cheap' Soqi" but it costs a lot to replace!

I stayed away from the bike today; it's clearly angry with me.

Page 3, 24 hours without a post! Seriously?

My early build 08 has over 13k miles on the original fuel pump. I think everyone who claims that there's anything wrong with the 08 fuel pumps is makint it up and unfraily maligning Yamaha.
