I am hoping to loose 12 to 17 pounds with this build.
I want to make this bike a full trail/race bike. In trail and race form I will be running it minus all the lights, blinkers, kick stand and stuff that makes it a dual sport. Only when I actually do dual sport rides, will I install every thing back on. The idea is to make the swap quick and easy so that is what I will be keeping in mind as I redesign some stuff.
I will be relocating some stuff. Computer, speedo cable, speedo cable drive flange and lower fork protector will be repaced by better, lighter, more option, cleaner installed Trail Tech Vapor unit, 06 to 07 YZF right lower fork leg protector and Flatland Billet Flange for the void in the stock speedo flange drive. I will relocate on/off switch. I will also be relocating transmision breather and radiator over flow hose. Possibly changing my over flow bottle in the rear into extra storage for gas.
I will take pics and try to give good details on some of the things I think people would be interested in doing. I found that not alot of info is readily available out there for the WR when it comes to swapping some things out. I come from Honda's and there is more info then you will ever want on a Honda. Does not seem to be the same on the WR's.

Bought new 2 weeks ago. Then sent out suspension to Mike at MB1 and started ordering my parts.
Never even start the slug as I didn't want to be disappointed! Rolled it in my garage and this is what it looked like 30 mins later.
Write up and pics to follow. I will get a bunch of it built over this weekend.
