Removed starter, battery, starter gears, speedo and some other small stuff from my 12" and difference is noticeable. It's still heavy when compared to my 12" 250SX smoker and i'm probably a bit faster on a ktm. Wr is still great and versatile machine. Not sure yet which bike i like more. Been also trying some suspension mods to my WR. Ohlins TTX rear shock, TTX cartridge kit and ohlins steering damper. Rear shock is from 2009 yz450f and it works really good, cartridge kit is from 2012 yz250f and probably need some revalving. Not sure if i really need steering damper but atleast it looks tricky. WR is really stable when compared to KTM. Maybe i should install it to KTM... Registered over three years ago and first post now. Hello everyone.
