I love this one
nice...

has anyone happened to develop extensive practice on both of these models, by now?

Off road stock for each model...and on road stock..

Highway speed ride quality, plus offroad ride quality....

wrr --

wrx --


How is the suspension valving ACTUALLY different in feel? Sprung? etc..


I've seen the WRR do some nice MX work, but about the WRX...it's not as common offroad, or MX.
The info just isn't out there.


Now that there are alot of you out there with WRX's and WRR's...

Can you enlighten the few who yet still have to choose one over the other, please?

Anyone run a high-level SM class with the WRX, what mods did you have to do to the suspension?

bumping this ol thread up because I'm torn between the two.

For the WRX owners, has anyone tried just buying the wrr front hub and brake rotor from yamaha, and lacing up a 21" front wheel? 800 bones is a little more than I wanted to spend on wheels, was thinking this might be a cheaper option and getting a 17" knobby for the rear.

My X came with a set of dirt wheels... not too terrible to change out and I am loving it.

Forrest says he can build X dirt wheels with the R hub as well for people who also want to switch the wheels & front brake when converting from supermoto to dual-sport. I don't think he'd actually built any such wheels yet when I last talked to him a couple months ago.

Apart from the risk of possibly whacking the larger X rotor against rocks and such, I'm wondering whether folks are finding the X brake setup to be grabby offroad.

Anyone have any feedback on this?
I have a set of 18 and 21 wheels for my X. Just put them on today for the first time with 606s on them. Love them. The brake is predictable and I am glad to have the extra stopping power if I need it. I am a big guy and more brake is better cause this bike has no problem getting me going

Ok guys, I have a friend who has friend that has both of the WR's, the R and the X models. He wanting to sell the X and it has the large knobies tires on it, the bike is pretty much stock other than that. I'm a dual sport rider, so what I want to know is how does the bike handle different with those large tires on the bike. If riding off road will I totally not like it, or will it be ok, remember here that I do not ride overly fast and ride with in my limitation for a 67 year old guy. I've never been off road without a 21" front on a bike so a little input here would help, thank to any response.
