Got to ride the new bike all day today,at last. First off, I had no clutch problems AT ALL. Not grabby,no noise,just worked like it suppose to. This bike handles really well also. This bike goes through the tight stuff as well as my 250 did, except if you needed to pull a shed or small house behind it you could. The low end is great. I have uncorked it and removed the snorkle and thats it. I bought several pilot jets this morning but haven't changed any thing but the adj. on the pilot screw so far. I won't change the throttle stop till later this week. I knew it wouldn't make any diff on the single track we rode today. I can't compare it directly to my 250 until I mount some Dunlop 773s later this week.I was worried about the backfire thing but never had a problem. I never get over 300' asl. and today it was close to 70 degrees. Fell over once(damn stock tires)felt about the same as my WR 250 when I picked it up, even though I know its heavier. I never changed my tank and seat on my 02, but now I know why everybody did. The new seat and tank combo are right on the money. After I picked the bike up Saturday it sometimes didn't want to start with the button, but as I put on some miles its got much better. I'm glad I got to get out and ride today and very happy with the bike. Its very nice to report 0 problems (yet), but if I have any,I'll post them.
