decals proved to be one of the most expensive items.
Yamaha list price is $111.60 each side.
This is the 3.1 gallon IMS tank that uses
the YZ shrouds.
challenge in changing to the white / grey was the seat.
I originally ordered a YZ seat, but it won't fit the WR.
The YZ unit is deeper and resides where the WR battery goes.
I returned the seat and just bought the seat cover.
Trust me when I say that a standard staple gun will not
penetrate the plastic seat pan. I had to take it to an
upholstery shop that had an air stapler. $20 later and
this is what you get.
Here is a
picture of the Dual Sport America license assembly with
integrated turn signals. I just drilled four mounting
holes and used nice hardware to attach. I'll
eventually put DOT tires on it and get it inspected and
licensed. Main use for this bike is trips to Moab Utah
where we unload the bikes and use them on both road and
chrome hardware to mount the tag bracket. I used
plastic washers underneath the head of the bolts.
and turnsignals. Much lighter system and smaller
WR426F and how it was set up:
is the external diffuser from the muffler. I put the
spark arrestor back in and just left out the tube.
Supposedly this is the first step in uncorking the stock
muffler. I'll leave it like this and if I need more,
I'll probably buy an aftermarket muffler and not hack up the
what the muffler looks like with he diffuser and spark
arrestor removed. I had previously drilled out the two
rivets to check out the insides, but decided against mods in
the stock on/off switch and put a key switch in its' place.
I then integrated the power wire for the DSA kit into the
switch as well. I now have one place to turn
everything on. The key switch works as a kill for the
engine as well.
Here is the
Dual Sport America headlight unit with integrated turn
signals. The unit is very compact and the horn is
supposed to be also mounted behind the shell, but I couldn't
get it to fit anywhere in conjunction with the WR's
speedometer unit. So
for now, it resides outside the shell. The DSA Dual Sport kit is
fairly easy to install, but ridiculously horrible instructions. If you need help, let me know.

a switch to activate the brake light. And also a
picture of the adapter for the front brake reservoir.
You have to bleed the brakes after installing. The
rear is a snap. There is a lot of fluid in the front
and I had to fill the reservoir about 3 times before all the
air made its' way downhill to the caliper.
Dual Sport America wiring harness attached, along with a
Battery Tender harness.
the WR rear fender with the YZ proved to be a bit of a
challenge and holes and trimming were necessary.
Apparently there isn't a coolant overflow bottle on the YZ
and I made provision for it by cutting holes into the
fender to allow the tabs to be bolted to their stock
location. Also, the WR fender has provision to
encapsulate the PCM. I simply unbundled the wiring and
found a place to mount it between the frame rail and the
rear fender. Two other spots had to be trimmed.....one
where it goes around the muffler and another on the bottom
edge of the fender where it meets up with the black shock
everything is integrated into one switch on the LH side.
Has indicator lamps for turn signals and high beam.
3-way headlight switch with high / low beam as well as a
running light. Turn signal switch and horn
button. I ended up moving the kill switch further to
below are of the home-made luggage rack. Easy to mount
a pouch to it for those all-day rides.
taillight unit turned out to be too heavy for the thin
fender. I tried bracing it a couple of times and
eventually gave up. Now has a small LED tail/stop
light and independent LED signals.
what's behind this clutch cover??????????? A Rekluse
automatic clutch. One of the coolest things you will
ever do to a trail bike. This makes the bike where you
can either use the clutch lever or let the centrifugal force
clutch do the work for you. This has helped me out of
some tight jams, plus the best part is sitting on your bike
at a stop light with your left hand no where near the clutch
and then just rolling on the throttle. Freaks other
bike riders out. Cage drivers typically don't
understand. Very easy piece to install and the guys at
Rekluse are great to work with. http://www.rekluse.com/
