  1. Scott @Antigravity Batteries, I ride a Yamaha WR250R which doesn’t have a kick start. I purchased an XP-1 along with the starting harness last Oct just before a 2 week trip. Didn’t need to use it thankfully but was nice to have packed away. One of my main concerns with Li batteries is how the cold can/could affect them. Perhaps this is an old issue but it’s one that’s kept me from purchasing a Li battery. While I do the general maintenance required I purchased this specific bike due to its extremely low maintenance. I don’t bother with trickle charging the battery during the winter and after a month of low 30s the bike still fires up. Will the new Re-Start Li batteries take the cold just as well or will they drain? Could you shed some light on this area for me? If the cold thing is a thing of the past I might be persuaded to try one of these new batteries. Lighter battery with a built in restart leaving the extra weight of the XP-1 at home in the truck. It’s a win win. Thanks Rob

    Wr250r ok in sand dunes?

    Depends though not really. Both sprocket changes and tires will throw off the speed/odometer. Some people play with it and match the changes together. Cant be bothered and don't really care about either on mine.. and I ride a lot of street, highway and interstate as well as off-road. The bike is an sleepy with stock sprockets. For true 50/50 do anything after 10k miles I'd say 13/47 or 14/50 is the best "dualsport" combo for our WRRs. I'm still riding 13/47 but just picked up a new 14/50 set to try.. I'll run 13/50 for awhile for some off-road fun and stay off the interstates. If I were to ride mainly off-road I'd ride the 13/50 for sure. put a 14 in the garage to swap out for any trips you might take where you'll have longer street or highway. Good idea to pickup a spare front nut as well. a 112 link chain works for either as well.

    Wr250r ok in sand dunes?

    I've had my WRRs in sand and have used stock sprockets 13/43 which are good for pretty much nothing. If you only make 1 mod to a WRR it should be here and adding teeth to the rear. along with stock I've used, 13/45, 13/47, 13/48, 13/50, 14/43 (HA! Awesome fuel mileage but crap for performance), 14/47, 14/48 and 14/50. For a true dualsport used in both the street and dirt I've found that 13/47 is the perfect compromise and that's exactly what the WRR is, a compromise between street and dirt. It'll tear up the dirt while still able to cruise along at 70-75mph and still accelerate to 80-85 and even 90mph but that's just scary on this bike. 13/47 also gives you one of the best and longest lasting chain to gear tooth wear patterns allowing both to last longer. The biggest bang for your buck to any WRR is sprockets. RMATV carrys the Primary Drive sprockets and chain. $65 bucks for the chain, $20 for a rear and $9 for a front sprocket. Can't beat that for quality, dependable, long lasting parts. Toss in a couple extra master links to drop into the tank bag and shop parts bin. If you don't ride street or highway often go with a 50 on the rear. Still ride street at 60-65mph but you won't want to be doing much highway. A 50 will tractor the WRR up pretty much anything off-road though. Our WRRs are designed to for high reving. Twist the throttle and you can take it direct to the rev limiter without fear. The bike will absolutely scream for hours on end. Tires .. A good set of all around tires are the T63 by Michelin. Long lasting, super stiff sidewalls, excellent and fairly quiet on the street and while the D606 handles deep mud better, the T63 handles sand better. I get 5k miles from a rear and 6k or so front. One be thing about the WRR is that its lean from the factory through most of the rpm range especially at idle, low and high RPMs. Because of this the bike actually runs hotter. I suggest the PCV programmer even for a stock bike as it runs a richer fuel mixture which lets the bike run cooler.. A good thing. In the sand.. Ass back over the rear tire, twist the throttle more, don't back off and let the front skip across the top of the sand. ?

    WR250 R/X Photo Gallery.........

    My '15 WR250R (the Black one) I bough new from the dealer as my first motorcycle and love it! 6 months prior to that the first bike we bought was the TTR50 for my son when he was 4. After asking when I was going to ride with him I got the WRR and followed that up with an '08 (the blue one) 8 months later and then this year added the TTR110 for my son whose now 6yo. So much fun.. Such a wallet sinkhole! LOL ?

    TTR110 handguards

    Thanks I'll checkout the eBay options and Acerbis. I'm looking to help protect their hands also. Few of us were riding and 2 of the kids went down and the bar end broke a few fingers on 1 of the kids. His hand slid off and under the bar as it hit the ground. My handguards have saved me also so that's one of the reasons I'm looking for full guards.

    TTR110 handguards

    Hi, Looking for a decent handguard that fits the stock bars and attaches like full size guards instead of just at the one end. Any available or would I need to replace the bars? I don't really want to. Its for my 6 year old. We're riding more trails and I'd like a solid guard for him.

    Pic's of your little one's!

    My 6yo and his progression of bicycles and motorcycles since 18 months old to now. With 2 years on the TTR50 we got him the TTR110 2 weeks ago for his 3rd year of riding and he loves it! That little red Specialized HotWalk is PERFECT at 1.5-2 year mark for them to get the balance and they will never need training wheels. At 2.5 he got the orange HotRock peddle bike and tossed the training wheels when at the bike shop. At 4 he got the 20" blue HotRock with hand breaks & 6-speed followed a few weeks later with the TTR50. At 5yo he got the MX bike. At 6 the new TTR110. On his new TTR110 The Collection.. On his TTR50 with my WR250R on some trails

    TTR110 for 6yo

    HI, This will be my 6yo sons 3rd year riding a motorcycle. Bought him a TTR50 2 years ago and just bought him a used 2016 TTR110 2 weeks ago. Prior owners kid road it a few hours and wanted a quad so I got a fantastic deal. I figured I'd get thee bike and he'd grow into it over the next year.... HA! 20 minutes at home and he is riding it all over. The only issue is it is in fact still a bit to tall for him to balance while stopped. Butt cheek off the side of the bike and he is just reaching with his toes on one foot. Below are a few photos.. The orange pants was him jumping on and going just as we got home and the dirt pants/jersey was a day after. Likely 20 hours on it in the last 2 weeks now. Looking at slightly lowering the bike and wanting options. Looking at cheap $30 Chinese TTR110 TTR110 seats off fleebay to shave down some to start. Don't care about the quality as he'll grow into the OEM seat quick enough. Also, raising the forks some might be an option but not sure since I don't believe the rear can be lowered at all. Any idea how much I can gain in shaving a seat? 1 - 1.5" maybe? Any suggestions would be great and appreciated. Thanks!
    Sargent Cycle Products - XT-Series Adventure Touring Regular Height - Yamaha WR250R Got this for free and I've gotta say for long street or highway touring its spectacular. One issue is the seat is completely smooth with no grip so while its amazing to sit back and count the hours on those long days it does kinda suck when you hit the dirt and want to grip the seat. Still.. it is on my bike most of the time and my ass thanks me for it!

    Tusk Spoke Sleeves (Black) https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com Part # 1638680004 Fairly easy to install. Used a cheap set of wire cutters to cut to length angled slightly at the hub end of each.
