I just bought a yuasa recently from "LeatherUp.com", you might try them. It was for a ducati, though. Good price.

OEM is a Yuasa YTZ7S

I'm sure Google will lead you to best pricing. Amazon is $86 http://www.amazon.com/Yuasa-Ytz7s-Sealed/dp/B002OQFPS0

Riding dirt roads up and around Hawk Mtn. (near Dawsonville, GA) much faster than I should've today - had tons of fun.

The new tank performed flawlessly. The newly installed skidplate was heard clanging a few times (ha-ha).

I'm starting to really love this motorcycle.

#325 in a swim suit and I love the crap out of my mostly way overloaded WR250X. To each their own I suppose...

Oh, and even loaded with all my crap I can easily exceed any posted speed limit and sustain it... just sayin. Not that I would, mind you





Of course I don't care what anyone else thinks. I just ride the crap out of it and let the nay sayers debate it while I am kicking up dust all over creation... like I like... YMMV and all that. Good talk.

Hi all ! Excuse me if this has already been asked or posted , searches got me nowhere . My friend bought a 2009 wr250x that has been converted to 21" and 18" wheels for dualsport . The bike handles "weird" so we checked the sag . The free sag was only 12mm and the race sag was only 75mm . The seller said the only thing he changed was the wheels and the gearing , so the springs and such are stock . What about the forks ? Are they the same length as the R and are the springs the same length as the R model ? We are not sure whether to slide the forks up in the clamps once the sag is set or not ? We are completely lost as to how set this thing up for offroad . thx in advance guys....brad

They are the same forks. Only diff between X and R is the wheels and front hub and brake set-up.
Check the size of the rear tire. If it's huge and way taller than the stock tire it will make the bike push the front end and feel real squirrely.

Caster angle and trail are different.

Hi all ! I guess I am a moron . I looked today again and the second place I looked gave me the info ( I think ) . Looks like forks are same as well as shock and frame . So , I guess just setting the sag to around 100-105 mm and putting the forks a few mm above the top of the clamps we should have the basic setup correct ? thx again guys ....... brad edit.....dang guys , I was typing this and 2 guys already posted ! I think the caster and trail are different due to the wheels being different sizes . He has D606's on there , don't know much about them . It does push the front end and feel squirrely . thx again guys....brad

How is the handling "weird"? I think you're on the right track, set the sag and the fork height like that and start from there.

Right, and when someone throws a set of R wheels on an X the geometry is not set up for the R wheels.

I'm not saying it can't be dialed in, but right out of the box it may be off a little.

It may be more than wheel size though................... Yamaha calls the X a "street bike" and the R an "adventure dual sport" I would think the specs baked into the X are to make handle best on the street.
