Directory of Modifications for the WR250R/WR250X

Recommended Posts

Well, I don't think there are enough threads, here, pertaining to the WR250R and WR250X, so I figured I would start another one :eek:

I'll do this as three posts. The first will have the items and their product numbers, links to manufacturers' websites, etc. The second will have links to threads or websites with how-to info for installing the products. The third post will be just for threads and websites that have other info and how-to info regarding maintenance, recalls, etc.

Please post any other links and info that you have in this thread and I'll add it to the appropriate post.

Hopefully some find this helpful.

We are looking very closely at building a 12-litre tank for the WR-R, but it

will be several months before we have anything for sale. Would you like us

to let you know when it is ready?

EDIT: I now see you already added this second skidplate ... only I suggest you edit the entry because I believe it's a Ricochet skid plate sold by Utah Sport Cycle.
