Previously quoted: "you need to bump the 5th setting to 6+ on the fmf power programmer"
Just a little update in case anyone was curious. I adjusted setting 5 to "6"(instead of 4) and now no more issues at 70+ mph.

Here is my new mapping(was originally set at FMF settings):
3 - 2 - .5 - 8 - 6 - 4

Original FMF settings:
3 - 2 - .5 - 8 - 4 - 4

Have noticed no issues all around. Sure is easy to adjust settings on that thing.

Pirelli MT21s on WR-X 17" Wheels...

A buddy of mine is wanting to put dual sport knobbies on his 17" wheels. It seems like I read that the tire of preference for this is the Pirelli MT21, but I'm wondering what size he needs to get.

Looking at the available sizes I'm thinking he'll need to run two rear tires F & R on his wheels. The only 17" tires I'm seeing are the 120/90-17 and 130/90-17, both of which are listed as "rear" tires.

What are you WR-X riders running for off-road tires? And are you running the same size F & R or going to a smaller width up front, like 130 rear and 120 front?

Thanks!

I have and X and am currently running Avon Distanzia's. I'm planning to go to a more aggressive tire in the future and have my eye on the Continental Twinduro, because they have a proper size front tire (120). I'm not interested in trying out a rear tire on the front, but I know plenty of people have done that. Here's the Twinduro:




...not as aggressive as the MT21's your considering, but much more aggressive than my Distanzias.

I busted my oem light and replaced it with the diablo. Fits exactly right, no fuss.

You do end up with an extra little light, but I didn't hook it up. It looks to be a dim running light.

Don't bother heating, just bend it back to where it belongs and keep riding!

I'd also round off the top inside corner of the shifter so it's not a sharp knife edge--will help from further damaging the case when/if it gets bent again. DAMHIK...

I also really like this homemade shifter case guard from a few pages back:

Nice simple job, will try that myself. Thanks cjbiker

A lot of guys run the Shinko 244's front/rear on the X model. I actually owned an X model for a short while that had this setup.

Thanks HWD! I forgot about that spatula / case saver. I bookmarked it, and will also clean up the inside of the shifter while it's off to remove the sharpness.

Nice video. I've been wanting to hit a riding school, so this one will be on my radar.

BTW, this is my favorite Shane Watts video. It's nice to know the pros screw up, too.
