Mods to exhaust + custom mapping makes the big difference.

Looking forward to your trip report, me and 3 other guys from Oregon are planning on riding the UTBDR the last two weeks in July. Two of us have WR250's, should be fun.

Sweet looking WR.

Oh yeah, hand guards are going to be installed this weekend, and I'm changing out to a hdb top clamp and re doing the switches for a cleaner look.

I'm 5'11", 32 inseam, very attractive if that matters.
That's a helluva good price on fatbars with clamps!

So far the only fatbars I've tried were the Windham/RM Mid ProTaper Evo's. I really liked them compared to the stock bars, not not enough to spend the money to replace my mostly good stock handlebars I have on there now. I might do it eventually again, if I keep the WRX.

I have the Easton bars............ Woods Bend. Got 'em on my WR. Threaded the ends of them and put bark busters on 'em. You could pick my bike up with a crane by the bark busters.

Bars

I had asked the same question about which bars were closest to stock, and if I recall, the Henry/Reed bend is what a couple had replied with. I had bought Protapers with that bend.

Of course, with singe track here in NJ, with trees every couple feet, and my innate ability to crash into them, I bent them.

I then replaced them with another Protaper set, but went with a Carmichael bend instead. Due to the previously mentioned trees on trail, we usually cut our bars down to 28-29 " or so. The Carmichael bends have a smaller section at the clamps, so then more room on the outer parts to cut down..and easier to get controls where I like them.

I liked them enough to get a set and mount on my KTM too.

I will probably do this just to save weight as well and that way I am ready to throw in a new exhaust and programmer when the time comes. Plus it is one less thing to get messed up on the trail.

It's all Scotty's failt...

Sometimes you do something to your bike that just makes you giggle...




Just about all set for my big trip of the year...

Scotty, remind me the pressures you run?
I put in Moose Racing heavy duty tubes. They weighed more than the tires I bought from you last year

Now that is a cool bike..

for all around pressures, the shinkos will run anywhere at ~ 20 psi. If you get into really gnarly terrain, sand, mud, or want to soften the ride up a bit, you can go down to even 5# & they will still perform. If i'm doing a lot of long pavement, i'll bump it up to 32#.

some ppl might think the bike looks funny set up like this, but i think it just works. You've got the range, the off road capability, & can really go anywhere. Looks like a great setup with the the wind screen. That helps a lot with long hiway sections. It will work offroad, too, but it is more vulnerable. Is that the spiral seat on there? It looks like you also have a standoff for the pipe.. have some panniers that go there?

Good luck on the trip & take lots of pics!

The wind screen adjusts up and down. In the low position it is fine off road. On road, is is awesome and the lighting is the best I have had on a motorcycle.

That is a standoff from Giantloop. I have their Mojavi and a Coyote... here is a pic from last years big trip...


I had the Mojave sandwiched under the coyote...



This year, I am going a different route... I am still waiting on a few parts.. more pics later but here is a teaser...



I will likely run the Coyote and Fandango for day trips out of camp. There will be a couple extra gallons of gas mounted to the brackets on the trailer... I may add one more gallon of gas and a gallon of water... I am going out to stay out. Wait until you see my camp

I am stoked

I'd like to help ya out but Im a moron too. I'd like to take advantage of that great deal on bars also. My consern is I feel I need a taller bar as I'm not comfortable standing on the pegs when things get rough. I don't want to have cable / wiring problems and I dont know how high I can go. I feel I need the bars about 1" taller, what bend should I get to get the height I need but without cable/wiring problems? Thanks for posting the link for the Easton bars.

Well now it is back on. I started it and left it idle in the driveway for about 5 minutes and the light is back. If I go into diagnostic mode it shows zero for #61 and #63 but 1 for #62. I flip the kill switch and the 1 does never turns to zero. I've tried to repeat what I did before to make it go out, but it hasn't happened again. Any ideas where to look next?

You might check that clutch switch connection.. since it broke, there could be a bad splice. if you disconnected the stand switch, that might be suspect. I had mine disconnected & tucked away for a couple of years, then it suddenly got a bad connection.

Another suspect might be the tip over switch. If you rearranged it at all, or if it got moved, a connection there might be off. aka lean angle sensor.

One other suspect.. one that i had. there is a plug that comes from the key switch that connects next to the radiator, under the tank. I had that pop off one time in a crash, & it took a while to trace it to that. Of course, you have no power if that one is off, so that's probably not it.

Good luck.. tracing down electrical probs can be a challenge!

Another thought! Do you have the exup in place? A code is thrown if you disconnect that, & you have to put a resistor to fool it, or a board. Or if the plug to the exup got pulled out, it would throw a code.

That is the ony problem? The cel is on, otherwise it starts & runs fine?
