How does the old saying go..."Never buy the first model year..."

I have only used the kick starter two times just to check
how easy it would crank. And I was very pleased.
So far it's a great bike guys! Everything I was looking for!
I might make a bigger support pad for the bottom of the kickstand, it sinks quick in the soft stuff!

I bought a Utah skid plate after seeing yours on your website. Those brackets that come with the shield are a nightmare to fasten! So what I did was use the exist. stock plastic skid underneath the new alum. one. I bought some longer metric bolts to go through the alum. skid and through the plastic skid, then you can utilize the stock mounting tabs on the frame. You need to drill two more holes in the new skid for the bolts. I used the stock clips on the rear of the plate, (you can get to these easily). Then when it was all tightened up properly, I put two short self tapping screws through the holes that Utah provided and screwed them into the stock plastic plate. That way it attached the plastic plate to the new alum. one and keeps it aligned for easy assembly. When I change oil, I take the skid plate off, so I had to figure out a better way of attachment!
Just thought I'd share.
And thanks for all your help you gave me before I bought my WR!
Sorry Rookie for the change of subject in your thread, I plead brain fade!

I still have to take it off when changing out the sheared woodruff key...
