Had to rescue a GS rider out of the woods yesterday...



We were about 70 miles from his truck and trailer. Fortunately my house was about halfway there, so we got to stop and switch to four wheels. Not a whole lot of room on that seat!

Thank you. I imagine something is exposed and hitting the frame and shorting after I removed the AIS. I didn't want to try and track down a phantom though if it was common.

Trying to start the bike with the horn going is surprisingly very difficult. Draws a lot of juice.

So the 13/47 gearing seems to be the most popular? People say that helps with top end, but does it also help with low end?

You are correct. I considered using Tusk fender bag like I did on the DR650, and it blocked a significant portion of the WRR headlight, so I don't use a fender bag on the WRR. I run a Wolfman enduro tool bag on the cowl above the headlight. It works fine, and hold more too.

No. A very unfortunately-positioned boulder to the tank shroud managed to break a fuel-line quick-disconnect. Really unlucky, but thankfully it's a fairly cheap and easy fix.

Stock is 13/42 or 43.

I ran my buddy's with 13/46 and it made quite a bit of difference. He was faster than me flat out too. I simply can't maintain speed in 6th and always have to drop to 5th to maintain R's.

My concern is once I change the gearing, the speedo will be off. You can get a speedo healer, but I've yet to find one under $100.

Oh ok, so the front is already good. That's good to know. Just need to buy a 47 then I guess.

Also a larger chain. As far as I know, stock is 108, you'll need 110. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.
