Wolfman Enduro Saddlebags/Tank Bag...

It seems the small Giant Loop may be too much for that, perhaps just a small soft or hard bag/box on the rear rack. I did inherit a small Wolfman tank bag with the purchase of the WR.
For my needs these are perfect for all tire changing stuff plus other daily essentials. The heavier tools, compressor, tubes, water, etc. go in the saddlebags, putting the weight as low as possible. Tank bag holds cameras, other stuff I want to get at quickly. Works great for me.

Not affiliated with this site... seems to have reasonable pricing though on a good selection of tubes and such.

That's mighty nice of them to give you some clamps and sell for $10 more than you can get on agrisupply.com.

I mounted a Wolfman Enduro tool bag on the headlight cowl:



Wolfman Enduro Tool Bag on WRR

Photo was the day I mounted it, and it was stuffed with rags, but even with 5 lbs of stuff, it doesn't sag into the beam of the headlight. The fender bag I had did interfere with the headlight, and held considerably less stuff.

Carries tube & tire change kit with plenty of room to spare.



added 3 Tusk 8" ultralight tire irons

Or maybe too far forward?

I packed once and somehow ended up bringing a boat.



75 Litre canoe pack worked quite well as a big dry bag. I'll use it for an upcoming trip without the boat.

I'm thinking risers but I already have a wide rental bar on the bike so how much riser can I or should I do? Or do I need the bars closer to me?
I had the same issue, which makes things interesting when you hit a bump and yank the throttle. Bar risers would probably be the best answer, but I don't want to deal with the clutch & throttle cables. I installed some Fastaway footpegs which have a lower option - haven't tried them yet as the bike is going to be on the lift till Tuesday.

FYI, I installed ProTaper bars with about 4" of rise (Windham/RM MID bend) plus have the Rox 2" risers and didn't have to replace any cables or wiring.

The clutch cable is now at the very edge of being too short when the bars are at full lock, but still okay. I did turn over the throttle grip assembly so the cables are now coming out underneath instead of above the handlebar. Also, I used some black window glazing to plug the drain hole in the throttle assembly which is now on top instead of the bottom.

I'm 6' 1" and also have the Fastway pegs in the lower position and this combined with the bars/risers makes the bike just about right for me when standing.

justgastanks.com. Check over in the vendors section for a coupon code. No affiliation other than being a satisfied customer.

How much do the fastway pegs adjust up or down? The website doesn't say.

Seems like a half inch or so... Not very much.

Can anybody show me a few homemade solutions to the rear fender on the wrr? The PO took a sawzall to the rear fender, attached his license plate to the fender bracket, and then bent his license plate to make a defacto rear fender between the bracket and the stock taillight. Unfortunately Oregon license plates are too small to reach. I've got several offers to send me stock rear fenders, but wanted to see if there was another solution.
Thanks!
