At least in Michigan it is not all that difficult to get an offroad bike titled and plated. I was surprised to learn that you can do this with a 2stroke as well. In several places in the forum, I have read that the WR wasn't designed for riding on the road, there were questions about the TPS
and how at certain speeds the bike seems to surge or go flat. Additionally comments have been made that the transmissions wouldn't hold up to that kind of riding. I guess I don't understand any of it. I'm guessing that the TPS
changes timing advance at a specific rpm and when riding close to that rpm at speed the switch in advance is more noticeable? As far as the transmission being able to withstand road riding, what would be the problem? Is it heat related, does sustained road speed build heat, I wouldn't think so. In 4th or 5th gears the CS might be turning faster, but the main shaft would be turning slower. Most of the transmission failures I have had are generally related to 3rd gear, when the ratio is nearer a 1:1. What would be the difference in a transmission that would be designed for road service. Thanks.
