hi everybody! I just picked up my 2013 WR today!!! It's a tall bike for me but with lowering link and lowering front forks so I can do tippy toes. I could only ride a few miles today because of rain. I love the feeling of engine, suspension and body. It's such a good looking bike with quality!!!
I already bought cycra's hand guards to install this week. Next target is flatland skid plate. I'm gonna go in dirt first time this spring! What else I need to get to get ready for woods and dirt? Any recommendations are appreciated!

Whats your inseam? Seams like everyone is trigger happy with the lowering link. Took me a while but got used to the height. Just wondering!

Thank you for warm welcoming everybody. Definitely I will go though this website and study mods and improvement to make my own wr250r. My actual inseam is 30" and I wear 31" inseam jeans haha. I'm only 5'7". I'm gonna try with stock seat for awhile, then if I don't get used to it, I want to try concept seats. Their seat seems quite a big improvement compared to stocks. I can't wait to finish breaking in the engine and enjoy riding it!!!

I'm 5'6 and all I did was the stock lowering of the bike and it works for me. I can only tippy toe one side but that's all I need personally.

I'm going to try to go on dirt and woods this Spring for the first time. So I think it's better both leg tippy toes than one leg tippy toe. I have heard there is pro and con about lowering link, but I don't know it will affect me in a bad way.

Thinking about the seat concepts as well. Im ok with the height bit could use an inch lower at 5'7", going for comfort! would rather invest money tword a seat and not a lowering link.
