  1. I believe that is a TR650. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Husqvarna_TR650

    On your side of the pond... https://www.ebay.com/itm/12V-Wassell-Solid-State-Three-Phase-Rectifier-Regulator-Max-190W-10124W/232196675977?hash=item3610001989:g:6BEAAMXQkl9RbFOL:rk:1:pf:0

    I use CRC 2-26 for electrical connections as it wicks into crevices and the wire, and doesn't attract dust. On my WR, I removed the side covers, seat, gas tank and headlight, then disconnected every connector and gave each a spray. As Edgecombe said, hit the fuses, battery terminals and, well, you get the point. The weak link for pre 2018 bikes are the exposed electrical components mounted to the rear fender, beneath the battery.

    From what I've read online, yes and yes.

    What is the best steering damper?

    This has been discussed many times before. https://thumpertalk.com/search/?q=steering damper&type=forums_topic&nodes=48
  6. As mentioned by CJ, give the Rhinos a try. They have a very smooth, tightly knit, nylon webbing that is super easy to cinch.
  7. I folded my plate along the lines of the sub fender (Tusk flavor) to reduce the guillotine effect and drilled some different holes in the plate for mounting.

    2019 WR250F premium gas

    From the owner's manual "Your Yamaha engine has been designed to use premium unleaded gasoline with a pump octane number of 91 or higher"
  9. Nice video. I like the camera angle and the bike doesn't intrude too much. I can't watch a video that has a fixed object (visor, handlebars, etc.) that is constantly in view.
  10. EFI is the only reason I ever bought a 4T. However, adding electrical system maintenance to the todo list is not a high point.
  11. If you are simply wanting to protect the expensive OEM plastics, consider buying a complete set of Polisport plastic and tossing on some cheap graphics. It will be less money than the graphics you are considering without any worries of tearing up the OEMs.

    If we have the same riding abilities and ride the same terrain then, maybe, my views may be of some help. So, how skilled a rider are you and what type of use will the bike see?
  13. Congrats on the new ride. I bought Unabiker rad guards; they fit well and after a few 'tests' are doing a good job protecting the radiators. As far as bark busters go, I'm not too particular, but use threaded, bar end, inserts. The stock skid plate is really thin. I don't recommend the Polisport item I have (not that much thicker and poor front mount). If you are at all thinking about resale, consider buying a set of aftermarket plastic as the color impregnated, OEM radiator shrouds are $175 each.
  14. For most applications, dirt bikes for sure, fluids are considered incompressible. At very high pressures compressibility comes into play. For those that have the slightest interest in the subject, google bulk modulus
