I am having a blast riding the WR on the street now that it is insured but the miles are pouring on pretty fast (1,000 in the last two months) and I am wondering if these bikes are meant for such riding. The maintenance schedule calls for valves, piston, rings etc to be serviced every 1000 miles which is not practical. I did valves after the first 1,000 but now have 2800 miles on the bike and don't really want to do them again so soon. I can't do things like rings my self so the Yamaha dealership would love me if I had the WR back in their shop every couple of months. What is your experience out there? Other than very frequent oil changes am I OK to ride on? Also, I read somewhere about street riding being hard on the transmission? Thanks guys, Greg.
