Wanted tips for setting up the wr for touring

I am keen to do some trips to the outback or Cape York (Australia) I am looking for ideas on setting my bike 99 WR400 up for touring eg gearing, tyres and any other mods.

------------------

I fit a 16 tooth front sproket on mine,

and left the rear 49 tooth alone.

But 95+mph is way too fast took it of after one ride.

I think a seat would be my first change(monkey butt after 30 miles on the seat)

Just ordered a set of sticky street tires

maybe I will try it again after I mount the new tires.

If you find a decent seat whitch can avoid the monkey butt :) (ouch)thing, tell me where end how much.

Thanks

'99 WR400 F, YZ exhaust, throttle stop trimmed, WR timing, airbox cover removed

The seat issue was addressed awhile ago, check the old posts. Consensus goes w/ GUTS racing pleasure line w/ tall soft foam. Makes a world of a difference on long trail/enduro rides. Just send them your seat and they will recover it and send it back for about $100-110 bucks. Looks identical to stock. Make your butt happy again!

Thanks for the reply guys. Does the 16 tooth front sprocket fit on the 99 WR400 without any mods? I just fitted a 15 tooth and it just fitted between the chain guide and the cover. Also with the seat problem do I need foam added and does it need to be softer or harder foam.

Thanks Andrew

I had to take off the case guard.

that was another reason I removed the 16 tooth.

your call...

About the seat foam I think I am going to send my seat in.

No more sore butt for 100 bucks well worth it :):D
