PostSubject: New used bike, must do's   Mon Aug 24, 2015 10:05 pm

Recently purchased 08 wr250f in bonestock form with just over 200miles (i can't believe it either) and my intent is to keep the bike pretty stock and use it for some mild trail riding and commuting back and forth to work once a light kit is installed.

And I was just curious what inexpensive/free mods that you folks recommend doing not necessarily to make the bike faster but modifications that make the bike either more comfortable/reliable and or trail worthy..

Thanks

Reliable: Bike is pretty reliable out of the crate. Just need to protect it to keep it that way. See "trail worthy" below for suggestions.

Trail Worthy:
- Spin your mirrors off and leave them behind or stow them in your backpack etc.
- Tires (just about anything is better than stock Bridgestone.)
- Skid plate. This bike is vulnerable from below without one.
- Hand guards, mostly to protect the handlebar controls during spontaneous Code 30 events.
- Sandman case saver.
- Lower gears, if riding steep and/or narrow. Might need a longer chain too, to accommodate a larger rear sprocket.
- Handlebar risers, especially if you're tall and/or ride standing up.

Inexpensive:
- Ha ha... That was a good one! The mirror tip is free, the bar risers are as cheap as $20, and everything else starts around $100 and goes up.

Just my 2 bits. Enjoy your new ride!

This forum is mainly for the R and X models, not the "F" which shares little to no parts with our bikes, so sorry. You seem to be on the wrong forum. Shog

Yes...I missed the reference to F model. My comments were based on my experience with WRR.
