WR Supermoto Tranny Trouble?

6 posts in this topic

Has any one had any trouble with their tranny, running street rubber and blasting around without a cush hub?

I want to tard this thing but I can't find a cush hub and I have zero self control when it comes to snatching up the front wheel :devil:

I have done about 5,000 miles with 17" Excel SM wheels and Maxxis ProMaxx street tires on the stock 18/21" rims. No problems with the tranny yet.

The SM wheels are heavy, and you will have to change your gearing. I prefer the stock rims with sticky street tires, and run 14/50 gearing.

I have accumulated over 10,000 miles combined with street, dirt, SM, and Dual Sporting since I bought the WR new in 2003. I wheelie all the time on the street, but am real careful about downshifting and locking up the rear tire.

'03 WR's had an issue with 3rd and 4th gear grenading. This problem was resolved with new part numbers for some of the tranny parts on the '04-later WR's
