Is that a replacement for the pump inside the stock pump housing or do you run that external to the tank?

Since it says "Made in China" it's probably from the same factory that sells to Yamaha.

That could be.

Here's a fuel pump for $13. There's a minimum order of 10 so you'd have to get 9 of your buddies with WRR's to go in on the deal. Or else just buy 10, you'd have a lifetime supply of fuel pumps.

front tire street only

Michelin Anakee 2 Adventure Touring Front Tire






is there any reason this tire won't work on the front of my wrr's 21" rim? it's a 90/90/21H it would be strictly a street application as i have a second set of wheels/tires for the dirt. has anyone had experience with them? i am figuring it's a Michelin so probably a decent tire but it is a bit pricey. thanks in advance for any responses.

There's no reason why it wouldn't work. Have a look at the Shinko 705 as well. Great tires for the price

CA model skidplate?

Does anyone make a skidplate that fits the California model with the smog equipment in place?

No reason the Anakee won't work, but I hear mixed reviews on it from the BMW people that usually run them. Only issue you might run in to is not being able to get the tire warm since the WR is so light by comparison.

Another alternative would be the Heidenau K76. I've got one on the rear right now and it seems like it's going to last forever...

I've used this tire on my Super Tenere(different size) and really liked the handling on wet or dry pavement. Price is not too bad either.. It might work..??

The Anakee will be the stickier of the two between the 705 and the Anakee and will work better on pavement if you really push tires. The 705 will work better on gravel, but its not a bad street tire either. The Anakee remains one of my favorite front tires on my Vstrom 650 for pure street use. I've ran several 705's too, but the Anakee for street duty is hard to beat. The 705 price is pretty sweet though too.

I run the 705's for my daily commute on the WRr, no problem in any weather temps from 35 to 100+ degrees F (have not tried snow). I spoon on Trackmater II for trips up North. The 705 is ok off-road, by no means is it a knobbie though.

First rear 705 lasted about 7500 miles, still had some life left. The front must have about 10k to 11k on it... Still at about 40-50%. The tire is cheap enough that I don't feel the need to run it completely down to nothing.

As a side note I used a Kenda 761 before the 705, the 705 is far better in every way. Only got about 3k miles out of the kenda before it started to get sketchy in the wet

Has anyone ever actually just changed out the pump motor?? How is it getting into the plastic housing to get the old one out ?

I think Krabill said it was difficult.

I may buy one and try it since my replacement pump failed already.
