...oh I don't think theer's any mean spiritedness going on here. We're just discussing pipes as they apply to sharing trails.
There's a large part of the WR250R community that have tried aftermarket pipes, including the rated quietest FMF Q4 (including myself) that have gone back to the stock pipe. "Just too noisy" is what I constantly read.

caveat
, using an FMF programmer with a FMF Powerbomb header and the stock pipe has pretty much proved to me there isn't a hug power gain with the Q4. As a note, I did open up my OEM pipe just a tad...

That is pretty much how we handle it here in NJ too.

Note, I've come across more than a few self-righteous ingrained moto hating horse people, both on the trail and in social situations...
They may have reason to be haters, but I won't give them the satisfaction.

Ride safe and share the trails.
I take the same approach and try to be polite to horse people. Honestly, I have seen very few around in my area, and they have been pretty cool with motos. We're all out to enjoy the same woods. I wish they would show the same courtesy to other trail users though and clean their horses emmissions off the frickin' trail!

Mine is on top of the air box snorkel under the seat.

So you set it with the seat off?

Yes, initially. Once I found the settings that seemed to work the best I have had no need to to mess with it.

I've got mine zip tied under the seat too, though it may be temporary. I'm getting a Fuzeblock which will be going behind the dash of my Lynx fairing, then I may mount it up there some where. My FI controller has spots for 10 maps, so if I have to change the map I'm assuming it won't be very often - IDK, under the seat may just be fine. How often are you going to be changing it up? The instructions that came with mine have you putting it under the stock fairing...

I wasn't necessarily referring to your post.

...no worries...

When I had the FMF controller (use Athena now), I had it velcroed under the left side panel on the battery. Easier to access it there.

I did a cheaper than Fuzeblock on this bike. A bus bar and fuse holder.
Not much room left under the seat for a Fuzeblock. I had to relocate the tip-over sensor as well.

I think I'll put it on my bars while adjusting and when I'm happy with it throw it under the seat.

Right on. I bought my WRR out there, in Victorville. Nice part of the world if you have one of these.

Question about X->R conversion

Hi all,

I have a WRX that I've been riding for the last year with knobbies on the stock 17" wheels. I bought a set of 21/18 wheels to do the R conversion and I'm finally getting around to switching over. I'm pretty much used to the big front brake (don't use it on dirt, hardly). Any opinions on whether I should swap the brakes or not?

Thanks! I'm loving this bike.
