I think Krabill disassembled his to see if just the actual pump itself could be replaced, thus it looked different. It's visually the same, pump for pump. Internally, who knows. I don't even hear a difference. LOL. What do I care as long as it works. When in doubt, replace it. Cheap insurance.

My replacement pump sounded so different, I thought the new one was a bad part. But it wasn't. Makes me wonder if the original pumps that sounded so different might be the one's that were prone to eventual failure.

Giant Loop Coyote blemished discount.

This bag gets great reviews on the R2 but is a little out of budget for some like me. This makes it perfect though.

At the MSRP of $329, it was holding a top spot on my wishlist, but I haven't been ready to cough up the coin for it. When I saw this ad today for $217 for a blem, I coughed up the coin without even blinking.

I wanted to make sure I got mine before you all snapped them up

P.S. I got the yellow, didn't want to get orange and look like some kind of KTM refugee.

I got yellow also even though I like the orange better. Support the home team!

The worst thing is I just ordered a new bag from them last week and it isn't even here yet. Since I paid their full price and got free shipping I figure it is still a big savings to send the first one back and just buy the blemished one.

Any body do anything like this http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...=622796&page=2
for the WR?

I want some wind protection but don't want one of those cheap windscreens. I realize it would need to attach to the forks as we don't have the fairing like the BMW, but anchoring it to the front upper fork pinch bolts might work? What about the tabs the number plate attaches too? I have thought about reinforcing the front number plate with fierglass to allow a windshield like the one seen on britannia composits. Or just making my own pattern, mold, then the final piece out of ficerglass.

Part of me wants to build one just to try and build something and learn about fiberglass.

Thoughts?

Something like this:http://www.britanniacomposites.com/lynx.html

I know they make one for the wrr and if you search around in here Mr. Fisherman posted up some pics. He also has a build thread on the wrr forum.

edit: 205'd...... not quite fast enough;)

Right, but I don't have $500 for one. Would reinforcing the headlight cowling/number plate with fiberglass strengthen it enough to attach a similar windscreen?

If you just want the windscreen, you could always do the harbor freight windscreen many of us are running. Go to Harbor Freight and buy a cheap cutting face shield

http://www.harborfreight.com/face-sh...sor-96542.html

or the mesh version, as someone on here has used

http://www.harborfreight.com/mesh-fa...eld-97010.html

Unscrew the visor, velcro it to the top of the number plate, voila $8 windscreen. Takes a ton of wind pressure off your chest, easily removable, and easily replaced.

the result:
