holy crap 1st gear is tall i knew it would be but its like 2nd gear on my wr. i'm putting 13/52 on, and changing over my rekluse. i'm pretty sure its gonna need some fww also. suspension in the rear feels a whole lot better than i thought,i ordered a 6.0 renton ti spring we'll see if i can get away w/out revalve. the front feels good but rides low and initial movement is harsh,great bottoming resistance,factory connection says they can straighten all that out,and respring to match the 6.0 rear for a minimal fee i havn't hammered it yet but the power seems very linear(good thing for woods) the bottom is kinda week,so i'm changing over my powerbomb and p-core 4,putting in a power now, also putting my icat on,so all that should wake up the bottom. what i can't get over is how much lighter it is; i took 20lbs off my 04 wr and this things still 11 lbs lighter! basically the same bike? i'm sure i'll end up adding 5 or so back in gaurds and such. i'll beat it into compliance overall i think its a smarter move to make a yzf woods freindly than it is to try to modify a wr for harescrambles. i do have a ? for anyone running 13/52 on a 05. whats its top comfortable speed on a open fire road? i'm hoping i'll still be able to run 55-60?
