Bumping my own old post about suspension upgrades with the WRR/X. Drew at WER has done enough of these now too, that also knows the issues with the rear shock, and has been doing suspension of all bikes for years as well.

Just putting out there as a completely viable option to Go Race. I am sure what Travis at Go Race does is great too, but there are also other guys out there fixing the WRR/X issues too.

Now, as of this morning, I got the ride it and test it out of my normal technical terrain. I was also riding with my normal riding buddies.

The rebuilt shock is light years better than the stock shock ever was. The stock spring was still fine for my weight, but the work that was done to the shock included revalving/new piston, new seals, shims, and new oil and nitrogen charge.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND GETTING THIS WORK DONE, TO ANYONE WHO RIDES ANY KIND OF TECHNICAL TERRAIN. If you just ride regular dirt roads and what not, then ts probably not needed.

Now I am not gonna discuss exact price or push one vendor over another..since there are a couple guys out there doing it for the WRR shock. BUT, I will say that I know the rough prices of the work out there, and am happy with what I paid.

So, if you are looking at getting your shock redone, I highly recommend Drew Smith at WER( Works Enduro Rider).

+1

Had my suspension done by WER as well... very pleased with the outcome, and the price wasn't terrible either.

Great thread.

Greetings fellow humanoids! New guy here with a decade or two of riding asphalt in Canada, seeking adventure off the beaten path.

I'm 65 pages into this thread so far, and I want to say thanks to all the guys and gals for the excellent posts.

Last season, while on my... "boulevard barge" (Popular Mechanics, 1988) I felt a stronger pull towards the trail than other seasons. Long story short, the Harley is up for sale, and I'm salivating over a WR250R. Talk about paradigm shift...

Chain and sprockets

I would like to put on a 13/46 combo and a chain with a master link.

Can someone help me understand exactly what I should buy as far as the chain goes? 110 or 112 links? Does that number typically include the master link?

Where is a good place online to buy all three components and one or two extra master links and clips?

If you're going to change sprockets, I'd go 14x50.
If you want to gear down for the woods you can always swap the countershaft sprocket for 13 tooth.

Chain is 112 links for that combo.

Rocky Mtn ATV has chain, ditto Motorcycle Superstore.
I usually use DID 520VT Gold X-Ring chain, it usually comes with a master link.

Thanks!

Is there a particular reason you go with the VT which is a narrow x-ring chain?

"I took it apart and sure enough the fuel line popped off. I must have not seated it right or didn't lock it on proper. I hope it doesn't happen again. Anyone else ever see this?"

IMHO: Didn't pop the fuel line on properly... when it goes on the fuel pump, you hear and feel a click

Less than 48 hours, it went from squeaky clean to filthy but it was so much fun!

First observations: I need a real back tire, I need a fuel tank.

Other than that, I'm starting to like this machine.
