Yes everything will fit nicely. When you tak off the odo you need to close the opening on the hub where the cable was attached. i think that I have seen a threaded plug for that try ziptyracing.com
The wr is ok on the mx track. I went that way last year but I am upgrading to the yz450. When you start doing some of the bigger jumps the suspension just cant keep up. Either you spend the $$$ and have the forks worked or upgrade the bike. The yz timing mod will help you there also, it seemed to help the bike rev quicker and added a little bit more punch. It actually handled everything else really well. If you are doing 50/50 trails/mx it is a perfect bike. But if you are thinking about doing 90% of your riding on the track then get the yzf.

I always turn on the lights for grins.
I can't wait to make them street legal.
We can ride up to the track, have some fun, and get a good ride on our way home.
I wouldn't go so far as to say it's in the hunt with a late model 2 stroke 250. With the average rider on board, like me, 250's are easier to ride faster on a track.
WR's really show their weight and topheavyness in the tight turns. They jump well up to a certain extent but some high jump, hard landings will introduce your chinguard to the crossbar pad.
There no doubt it would make a better bike for MX than a KDX, XR, or DRZ.
