    Just back from Morocco, and apart from losing a bolt out of the stand, no problems. Returned over 100 miles per tank. Nothing stopped the bike, although I was knackered at times.

    One good thing about the GSs being shipped of to the states is that I'm forced to ride the WRR everyday - and I'm loving it.

    It's the perfect city commuter and (finally) got out on a few easy trails last night and a bimble in the peaks - superb

    Pictures next time

    I have a FMF Power Programmer that came fitted to my WR250R.
    The bike was running rough in the midrange so I took it to a local well respected mechanic to re-programme the FMF thing.
    He said he'd got it sorted but he hadn't, the bike would just die for no apparent reason.
    I then took it to a local electrics wizard who re-set it then set it back to standard settings for the WRR, still no better so I had it taken off.
    A friend who also has a WR250R tried it, he re-programmed it - no better. His wife, an engineer by trade re-programmed it and it was still causing his bike to run rough so, like me, he's taken it off.
    Now, when it wasn't fecking up mid-ranges or causing my bike to stall it was superb. When it was working it made a huge difference to the performance of the bike.

    So........
    The obvious thing to do is bin it.
    But.......
    If anybody on here thinks they can make it work and would like it, it's yours.
    Drop me a PM & I'll try to get it to you this week.

    I am hankering after a WR250R.

    They are still available new in the US, RRP about $6600 - does anyone know if it would it be feasible to import one and
    register it here?

    Thanks
    Lloyd.

    Might be worth contacting one of the big bike importers from the states like DandK . It might be your cheapest option and less hassle.

    It gets a bit expensive when you add shipping, 20% vat and 8% import duty.
    I was thinking of buying one in the US and riding the TAT on it then shipping it home.
    Milton Keynes off road have some now and then used with 10k on them.
