M12x15-P1.5

Stock is actually 12x20, but I'm told Zeta's 12x15 works. You may want to get confirmation.

Thanks guys! I did some searching myself and came to that same conclusion. It appears that the FMF recommended map for the bike has that one little bug on occasion during hard acceleration in 6th. I'll do a little adjusting and be on my way!

I'm loving this bike, the smoothness and extra ~10HP over the CRF230 make it quite the fun street bike(in addition to it being a fun dirt bike). I've got about 20 miles offroad, can't wait to get some more dirt time in.

The rear wheel can move at an angle to the center line. The sprocket is attached to the wheel. So the rear sprocket is not in line with the front sprocket.
Something like that...

Got it, thanks. I'll make sure my back wheel is lined up.

Do you have a night time picture of the beam pattern?

They aren't custom. I got them off *bay.

I couldn't find them anywhere in the US.

They came from the United Kingdom. I installed inner tube strips behind them, to

avoid some wear.

I went with the HID route on my DR650 and had issues with the things holding up on the trails. In the end I went back to the regular halogen bulb and added some ADVMonster LED spots which were wired on the hi beam circuit.

For my WRR I went with the same basic solution but modified it a bit. I went with Mondomotos LED Spots and wired in a separate on/off switch from HDB.

Switch mount:


Left side:


Right side:


Off:


On:


I was a little bit disappointed with the beam pattern on the Mondomoto's LED spots since they were not as tightly focused and the ADVMonster LED Spots. Initially I was going to replace them with an extra set of ADVMonster units but they actually seem to work better when you are on a heavily wooded trail at night so I am leaving it as is.

Generally I have found this to better solution than the HID route since it gives me the ability to aim three separate beams which gives me a lot of latitude over the final beam pattern.

1200 miles on the bike, FMF programmer w/Powercore 4 exhaust.
Mine did that set the 5th # at 6 and it will stop that is per the person that made the controller dobek performance

You don't pull the clutch during gear changes?

I do from first to second and back into first. I used to shift every gear before an instructor at an Advanced Riders Course from MSF told me there was no need. Just kick it up or down unless you are under full throttle, and for then just back off for a fraction of a second.

I do it both ways but use the clutch more often than not.
