Nice!   Did the steering stabilizer really make that big a difference?   I use them on quads, but I've still never used one on a dirt bike.  


The difference for me is huge, especially on this relatively tall top-heavy bike (compared to most dedicated dirt bikes.)  The stabilizer significantly reduces front end deflection and associated wandering from hitting roots and rocks, especially in conditions like the steep mile-long rock garden shown above.  Deflection is even more of an issue, with higher penalty points, when riding single track trails with significant exposure like we have in much of Idaho.  The stabilizer also helps prevent head shake at highway speeds.

I originally installed the stabilizer on my WRR and quickly took it for granted as I forgot what it was like to ride without it.  Then I bought the Beta two-stroke, moved the stabilizer to that bike, and neglected my WRR for a few months.  When I started riding the WRR again without the stabilizer I was quickly frustrated with the difference in front end handling between the two bikes.  For the ride above I swapped the stabilizer back to the WRR and was immediately happy again.

I love it on my Beta also, especially in conditions like shown in the short video below.  I'm thinking about buying a 2nd stabilizer so I can have one on both bikes full time.

That looks like fun! I've always liked stabilizers on quads, and would like one on the WR, just trying to cost justify it. Mine has been languishing since summer. Been busy with other projects, and things to do on weekends. Another trip next weekend from Friday until Sunday, then hope to be able to at least get a ride or two in before winter hits.

Always waiting to see your next post to see where you went off exploring. I wish we had places like that around here.

It's been a long cold winter in Idaho.  The ski area on the mountain above Boise still has over 100" of snow but things are starting to thaw and melt at lower elevations.  Yesterday my wife and I enjoyed 40 miles or so along the Owyhee Front south of Boise, ranging from 2900' to 4200' elevation.  It's still early in the riding season but it felt great to be out and about on the WRR again.

The great thing about riding with an ATV is that the quality of lunch and liquid refreshments goes up noticeably!

A few pics from a Monday afternoon solo ride in the SW Idaho high desert.  A well-sorted suspension and steering stabilizer make this bike a true joy to ride in this terrain.

My friend Ken came over from Montana and we enjoyed a couple of days riding the rim of the Owyhee River canyon in Southeast Oregon.  The high desert is beautiful in springtime!

Still too much snow to ride the alpine high country, so springtime riding in the high desert continues.  It's tolerable, LOL.  Very happy

I've been remiss in updating this thread with some new content. Here are some shots of a mid-July ride on the Continental Divide in the Beaverhead Mountains along the Idaho-Montana border.

Enjoying some easy fall riding above beautiful Boise ID. We're fortunate to have the Boise National Forest so close to town.

I rode directly from city streets onto this single-track. Downtown Boise is in the background.

Putting the WRR through its paces while enjoying some late fall riding on high desert single-track along the Owyhee Front in SW Idaho.

The YouTube clip is embedded below.  There's also a better resolution version posted here on my Vimeo channel.

Crazy warm winter weather this year means an early start to riding!  Yesterday it was 66 degrees F (19 C) at the trailhead vs. 20 degrees (-7 C) at the same time last year.  It was irresistible.

Appreciate you sharing your experience, pictures, and videos. Really jealous of the riding you get to enjoy. Here in MO we've got some fire roads and things but nothing like the single track you frequent. Gonna have to make a trip to ID one of these days.

Braaap attack!  Yesterday yielded some great early springtime riding in Diamond Basin along the front range of the Owyhee Mountains SW of Boise, ID.

Sometimes a guy just needs to be alone and away from civilization for a while.

I recently posted the same pics in the "Sweet Mods & Bike Accessories" sub-forum but wanted to add them here too for easy future reference.

I ordered a Force Accessories radiator guard from Australia on last Monday and was pleasantly surprised to see it arrive here in the USA on Saturday (while I was out riding.)  Giddyup!  Force Accessories doesn't appear to ship to the USA, so I ordered it online from one of their Australian distributors who does: F1 Moto.

I chose this particular model because it's lightweight, strong, is reinforced with 3 cross-tubes, has a rear brace, and extends beyond the radiator on the sides and bottom.  Price was $118 USD, including shipping.  They also make it in a black anodized version.




You ever do anything to the radiator guard and shroud to keep it from bending the radiator on side drops? I have read some threads that state there is a design flaw relative tot his. Or has it held up for the two plus years?

No further mods, and no problems.  This Force Accessories guard is the toughest radiator guard I've ever used.  Last winter I replaced the Unabiker rad guards on my Beta two-stroke with these too, after bending up both radiators to the point they required repair.

I don't abuse my bikes but I do ride them hard, so they do take the occasional dirt nap.

Good deal on the radiator guard. Now all I have to do is find some easy trails out of Boise. Very happy

Enjoying late summer cool days and exploring the central Idaho high country above 10,000'.  This is Crater Lake viewed from Railroad Ridge in the White Cloud mountain range.  It's accessible from the north via single-track with 5000' climb up French Creek from the Salmon River below, or from the south via primitive 4WD road with 3000' climb from the Livingston Mine in Big Boulder Creek.

Front: An old D606 that's probably overdue for replacement.

Rear: Motoz Tractionator Enduro I/T running at 6 PSI with the Tubliss system. The traction with this combo is amazing.
