It depends on what type of riding you plan on doing. About half on my riding is tight stuff so I added a Scott's steering stab and a Rekluse.......oh and don't forget about a bash plate. Another cool mod is the auto decompress ex. cam, you won't regret it :cheers:

Congrats on the WR.

I also have a 02 WR426, with free mods and GYTR pipe. Runs leaner and hotter and needed a more rich mixture.

I would not bother with a steering damper, as I have gone full on in 5th on rough gravel roads and never a sign of headshake. It just adds weight IMHO.

Change your oil ever 250km - 400km dependant on temp and riding style. If the oil gets dark, change.

I used to foul plugs, and need 30 kicks to start until I REALLY took note of the starting procedure.

Down to 2-3 kicks after standing for a few weeks, or 1 when hot.

Love mine!
