If you're looking to replace that big ugly chain cover on your Yamaha WR250R or WR250X, Zeta Racing offers these slick looking CNC Machined Aluminum Heel Guard / Chain Covers. They are available in anodized titanium silver (top photo), anodized blue (bottom photo) or anodized black (not shown). They bolt right up to the OEM swingarm mounting locations using the stock mounting hardware (no modifications required).
One of our more popular rack/bag combinations for the Yamaha WR250R (and WR250X) is a Wolfman Peak Tail Bag mounted to a Pro Moto Billet Cargo Rack. This setup works great for carrying things around on the back of your WR250R Dual Sport or Yamaha WR250X Supermoto. The tail bag fits the Pro Moto Billet rack perfectly and is secured by wrapping its four mounting straps around the outer edges of the cargo rack.
For its size, the Peak tail bag holds quite a bit of stuff. The bags contents can be accessed very easily... you just un-zip the heavy duty zipper that runs around the top of the bag, then flip the top open (see photo above bottom/left). Internally, two straps keep its contents stable, and the top bungee-web is a great place to keep gloves and other things handy when off the bike. An expandable 4" gusset makes room for even more cargo when fully unzipped. The bag is stiff-sided to retain its shape and looks, whether empty or full. An optional waterproof cover is available as well.
We've been running Pro Moto Billet Fastway Evo 3 footpegs with their F5 cleats on our Yamaha WR250R Project bike. This could be one my favorite mods for these bikes, since the factory pegs are so flimsy and narrow. The Pro Moto Billet Fastway footpegs are considerably wider and have more aggressive F5 serrate pin cleats, not to mention three rows of them (11 in each footpeg).
Installation is pretty simple. The first thing you have to do is install the cleats in each footpeg. Pro Moto Billet (PMB) includes loctite and a special tool for you to use. Once you get that done, you need to remove the stock footpegs. The left side comes off real easily, but the right one takes a bit longer since you need to move the rear brake lever out of the way. Once that's done, it's just a matter of putting on the new footpegs and then playing around with the various adjustments (see below) to suit your riding.
One of the biggest advantages to these Evo 3 footpegs is their adjustability. They incorporate a patent pending Universal Collar System that allows you to choose from standard or lowboy seat-to-peg height positions. I went with the Lowboy position, which is slightly lower than stock, and I like how that setting positions the pegs in relation to the shift and brake lever. In addition to that, there is a FKMS (Fast Kamber Mounting System) which allows you to adjust the upward and downward tilt of the pegs using a bolt/shim setup on the backside of the peg. I ended up going with no shims, which keep the footpegs pretty much flat.
These footpegs feature Pro Moto Billets patented replaceable traction cleat system. With the F3, you get two sets of F3 threaded cleats – short 10mm, and tall 12mm cleats; which allow you to customize the shape and traction level of your footbed. Set them up all tall, all short, arched center, tall outside, tapered, or get creative! There is also an F5 Serrated cleat, which offers a bit more traction than the F3. When you order the F5, you will also get a set of the F3 cleats so you actually get two sets of cleats.
I love these things! The wider platform feels much better than the narrow stock pegs, especially when standing up. I also like the lower "lowboy" position since it puts my boots in a better spot to shift and brake, plus it gets me a little lower on the bike. Overall I think this is one of the best mods for the WR250R.
If you're looking to replace that big ugly plastic chain cover on your Honda CRF250L, Zeta Racing has the answer. These slick looking CNC Machined Aluminum Heel Guard / Chain Covers have always been available in titanium silver (top photo), but they're now also available in a black anodized finish (bottom photo). They bolt right up to the OEM swingarm mounting locations using the stock mounting hardware (no modifications required).
Shown above is the 2014 Honda Grom we picked up over the weekend. Does this qualify as a dual sport or supermoto? Well, sorta. After 100 miles of ripping around on this thing, I'd classify it as a mini-supermoto and definitely worthy of our next project bike.
These things are tons of fun, very economical, and already have a lot of aftermarket support. We'll be doing a few things to it over the next few months... exhaust, EFI controller, fender eliminator, footpegs, tires, handlebars.... the list goes on and on.
The stock shift lever on the CRF250L is non-folding and can easily be damaged in a crash, and could even do damage to your engine case. Swapping it out for one with a folding tip is highly recommended. Forged from 6061 aluminum, this shift lever has a folding tip that can help prevent damage to the shift lever itself and the engine case. It comes in a nice looking black w/ red color combination, which looks great on the bike.
For a limited time, we're running a special on our FMF Q4 Exhaust Performance Package and our FMF PowerCore 4 Exhaust Performance Package for the 2008-2015 Yamaha WR250R Dual Sport Bike and Yamaha WR250X Supermoto. Each package comes with an FMF Slip-On Muffler (Q4 or PowerCore 4) and an FMF Header (PowerBomb or MegaBomb). You can optionally add an EJK Electronic Fuel Injection Controller and/or a 12oClockLabs EXUP Emulator.
Our WR250R Project Bike currently has the Q4 Performance Package, while our WR250X Project Bike has the PowerCore4 Performance Package. Both packages really wake these bikes up, giving them better overall performance, especially in the low-end of the powerband, and they make the bike sound so much better than when left stock.
Choose the Q4 package if you're looking for a slightly quieter exhaust system, since the Q4 muffler is the quieter of the two (although still louder than stock).
We've been putting some miles on the bike with the new Supermoto setup and it's a blast to ride. If you put a lot of street miles on your bike, a Supermoto wheel/tire setup is the way to go.
We've added a few new mods, including our Yoshimura RS-4 Performance Exhaust Package, new and improved DRC Edge2 Integrated Tail Light Kit, a Folding Shift Lever, an Acerbis Supermoto Front Fender, and some DRC Supermoto Footpegs. We're also using a Wolfman Enduro Carry All Numberplate bag.
