Can't I do both!?

I wonder how much people spend on their addons? 1/4 the price of the bike? More? MUCH more? I'm in for half ATM.

Nice riding Indypup on your 2 hillstarts at 5:20. Those stopped riders were probably a bit envious of your skill (or blue bike)

Yeah, I don't know what the deal was with those guys. It was really loose loam so they might have spun out. ;)

I wanted to blast by them all but didn't have room.

Forgive my heretic status (no WR250R yet) but what I liked most about your video was hearing an engine that makes power at a reasonable rpm. My KLR250 would be screaming running at 2000 more rpm than your bike. This fall I'll be riding blue. I can't wait.

You know, lots of people say they have to rev the WR high to get it to perform, but that's exactly the same RPM band I'd be in in the same trail conditions. I think the bike has plenty of grunt off-idle with just a "mild" gearing (13/47) and exhaust upgrade. Granted, I'm not "fast" but that's where I'd be riding.

I never regret it either.

Does anyone know why Yamaha filled the needle bearings in the rear suspension linkage "rocker" with plastic material rather than grease? It's the first time I've seen it done that way.

The only thing I can think of.... is that there isn't very much travel in those bearings? It doesn't make sense to me, because there isn't any room for lubricant, and if water makes it's way in I would think they would be prone to rust more quickly?
