That's cool  :thumleft:. Is the forks WP? I am keen on getting a WP setup, but I am also unsure about the rear.

I would also rather go for that option. I put progressive springs in my DR, but it was quite harsh and not much of an improvement. The shocks on my 690 is even less harsh than the progressive springs with much better feel once it is setup properly.

It is a cheaper option to just change the springs I guess, but I mean WP  :drif: is I think also going to be better now that I have the larger Acerbis on. Any crappy excuse to put the WP on  :biggrin:

Where did you get the gear lever?

Dit is n YZ250 Airtime lever, by Helderberg Yamaha in Paarden Eiland gekoop.
I got an airtime lever today, neither the YZ nor the YZF lever fits.

That,s risky, if your doing a long tech ride take your stock lever with just in case, you don't realize how much pressure you put on a gear lerver
