What to do?


I have 99' wr400 and what to make it feel like a lighter and smaller bike. I would like to know what I should do to it. I want to get a yz tank and seat. does the yz seat have a lower seat height. Would else can I do/buy to make it easier to move around.


I put on the IMS YZ tank and the YZ seat and it actually raised the seat level by about an inch.

I recently put on a YZ OEM tank and seat on my 99WR. WOW!! What a difference! It feels and looks MUCH slimmer and lighter. I also took off the kickstand in an effort to shave extra weight. Don't know that I'm any faster by removing the kickstand, but I'm sure it shed at least a pound or two.

It is odd that some find the IMS/YZ seat to be taller. When I mounted my IMS seat and stock YZ tank onto my 99 WR. It feels like I can touch the ground better. It may be that the seat is slimmer and allows my feet to take a more direct approach to the ground.

If you want to move around don't get the "gripper" type seat cover. I hear they shred riding pants also.

I have also added the Jimmy Button high bars. I've only ridden once with them and they provide a lot more room in the riders area and allow me to move up onto the tank easier. I bought these bars because I don't like the way bar risers look and my stock cheapo bars bent.
