Ive had little experience with the yzf's and wr's but I found that they tend to like to damage the right side engine cover with the rear brake pedal. In crashes or when smashing the pedal down it will crash into the cover slowly wearing it down over time making it weak. A friends Yzf400 has been welded twice due to a hole. I used tool box foam since its real thin and was available. Weather stripping could also work. I used about 4-5mm of foam and tapped it to the brake pedal between the engine and lever. This way theres foam hitting the engine rather than metal to metal. I ran tape in the spacing that forms the triangle on the peddle to support the foam. Ive ridden only like an hour, the tape/foam hasnt melted and the engine looks good. Just wanted to spread the word to save time and money. Will try to get pics if people are interested. Ed
