Regret any mods?

9 posts in this topic

Ever regret any mods on your bike? :rolleyes: Done anything that had a negative effect on performance or handling? Any changes that created too much power with control difficulty? I put a set of slip-on pipes on a bike before and got a lot of brassy sound and lost low-end torque. :thumbsup: Good to know what to avoid. The common beliefs aren't always true

Nope...not one.

The trick is to do your research! I was very methodical about at what stages I would do "what" mods in an attempt to match and grow my skills with the bike :thumbsup:

One thing I kind of regret is taking off the AIS system. I was caught at a ohv area without it and they gave me a ticket. Performance wise it doesn't do much, but if your not in california, it won't hurt!

I bought and mounted a set of pro tapers / woods bend..... the bars were to narrow to accommodate the e-start button.. No taking em' back once you clamped them. I was able to salvage the situation by mounting them on my son's bike :thumbsup:

Just a note to those with e-buttons, most factory narrowed woods bars may not be wide enuf:prof:

I was second guessing the YZ cams but after the first ride I can say that it was worth the hassle of doing it :rolleyes:

Other than the narrow bars I have not regretted one mod that I have researched here on TT :rolleyes:

Cycra Stealth DX handguards - Still haven't figured out best way to attach them (brake side). But I love the Cycra front disk cover!

cycra triple clamp mount hand guards. :thumbsup:

they dont fit 08 WRs and have to be machined to clear the light/number plate mount as shown on thumper talk. once they are machined, they are weak. I bent mine bad enough that it had to be removed to pull the clutch in. I actually dumped it in the parking lot before my first ride. total trail hours on the bike before being pitched into trash can was zero.

Interesting- I love mine.

I regret installing the Pro Taper Rubber Mnt top clamp. Not because it's a bad product but since I want the Scott's SubMount Damper setup it turns out to be wasted money.

I also regret the IMS 4.0 gallon WR tank. Again this is not because it's a bad product. It's a great product but if I knew then what I knew now I would have bought the tank for the YZ and gotten the seat to go with it.

Yeah, I regret my ims 3.2 gallon tank on my 07wr450. It made the bike feel huge. I'm currently running a clarke 2.6 gallon tank, and it fits and feels much better. I'm also not completely sure about these flexx bars that I have on my bike now either. They kind of make it feel like I'm driving a bus. I hope that I get used to them.
