YZ seat of Scotts Damper what do you think?
Posted June 20, 2000 - 03:19 PM
Dampers are for wide open more, if you ride medium to tight trails cornering will be more important... Seat and tank!!! Besides, the WR is a stable bike, a CR or RM would be another story.
I had a damper on the last bike, my priority will be YZ seat and tank.

Jacket -0 (if any votes for this one Bryan said he was going to kick you off the site)
I gotta say I'm gonna keep the wife, besides she rides! Although, if did ditch her I would get lots of exercise for my HANDS and GRIP, Kevin!
I always see the silver lining!
Brian Meadows had a good point "the damper will benifit ALL riding conditions, the seat/tank combo is more selective to your riding style & terrain." Very true, like Bill said if you stand alot you wont even feel the tank and seat!
I had a friend tell me also, "You've got a seat and tank already, get the damper!"
I think I'm leaning toward the damper!

I always thought the stabilizer is for head shake. I have NEVER had headshake on this bike. My CR Honda, absolutely. Not this bike. Yamahas are known for their straight line stability.
99 WR, all YZ mods, de-octopused, OEM YZ tank and seat, jetting by Clark.
For clarification: WE'LL be having a KICK ASS time in Moab!! Right Mitchy & Bill?!!

Good suggestion Mike. So good in fact that I think I'll spare Ken
I also bought the new Sony flat screen Wega TV. It's awesome. This Thurs I'm also getting a satalite. I figure it's time to step into the new century.
Matrix was my first movie to watch on the DVD and new TV and I watched it over and over. Great movie!
Oh, was this post about Dampers -vs- Seat tank? Sorry, I forgot.

I dont know guys, they might have a point...
You guys are very right. Women that like to ride are few and far between. It's not her passion but it was her idea to get 4 new bikes! Mind you "they all had to be the same color". Our moto has and will continue to be to expose our kids and ourselves to as many things as we possibly can. That was some of the best advise I think I've ever recieved. I just started my 7 year old flyfishing yesterday and my 5 year old starts golf lessons next week!
Vega!!! Bryan, you've got it goin on! How big? 36 I hope. Matrix is the other movie I was try to think of, awesome flick.
Video shops are dangerous places alot like motorcycle shops. Last time I went stereo shopping it almost cost me my life! "What, $3500 for two speakers!!!", "Did I hear you correctly did you say $1000 for a sub woofer!!!!"
Anyway! No Ken, I wouldn't dual purpose the jacket!
As for arm pump, I rarely get it. (nock on wood). I guess thats another argument for getting the seat and tank.

If you don't get much arm pump, I'd go for the dual sport fishing jacket for sure. Then the seat tank combo next.
For some reason Sony spells it: Wega (sound like Vega). Must be a Japanese thing.
They also tried to talk me into the $2000 surround sound system. My wife said no. That was a good thing because when I hooked the DVD up to my normal stereo at home, it sounds freak'n AWESOME!
We must all be starved for entertainment when we get 30 something posts on this silly topic!
