Well hello yamaha people,
well i just made the swap from kawasaki to yamaha. This WR is insane so far. havent done anything to it as far a free mods and i am impressed allready. now for the problems. I have a bad off idle bog, and it seems to be clicking in the engine. I havent finished the break in yet so i was just wondering if this fixes it self or is there something i need to do right now about it. thank you all and yes the lack of caps are on purpose. im lazy haha
