How do I make my WR more YZ like?
Posted March 29, 2002 - 01:39 AM
Upon getting back on my WR I realized my bike absorbed the terrain much better, had a more solid ride and was more comfortable. I liked my suspension (race tech) better. I decided I liked my WR better but would like to have some of the YZ characteristics The YZ had a 53 tooth rear sprocket with a stock chain (4 teeth up). (stock chain meaning real wheel forword.
· Questions: From all the posts I have read it seems I can make the WR steer much quicker by installing a YZ type Clarke tank and seat combo. (3.2 gal)
· The gear ratio change is a given but what about moving he rear wheel forward as Kamikaze has done. Did that controlled slide feeling in the rear come from moving the tire forward?
· What could be the good and the bad of moving the tire so far forward. Someone said I might do endo’s on steep hill climbs.
· I am a aggressive (maybe a little crazy) trail rider. Thanks, Fred

It would be easy to add a guard attached to the front dampener stand-off to protect the adjusters.
I have not had any problems with tearing off my adjusters though.

Open or desert riding is another story, I dont think the same applies.
