   Yes mate, it is a bit higher. It must be at least 2cms higher, it is more level so it allows for better and easier movement of the rider! Here is a picture of a friend's of mine DT200WR with WR200 fuel tank and seat!





   Cheers, Fanis

So WR showed up in the PV-Foorumi's Vauhtipäivät (Speed days) drag race event last weekend. It's 1/8 mile race held in small airport near Pieksämäki. It's mostly for small Suzuki bikes, like PV50 (similar to japanese EPO) and RB50 but we have bigger bikes too, like that white '74 Vespa Primavera with 150cc Parmakit setup and ported CR125 Honda. I was 2nd in under 250cc class, that CR was just too quick for me! Overal weekend was really fun. And everyone who tested my WR liked it very much.

Here's link to Jarkko's photo album from our weekend, you can spot me with my cool vintage Yamaha shirt from several pic. :D

Winter has arrived and DT got good used spikes. Just waiting for new repro decal set to arrive that I can replace those worn rear fender decals.  :)

Cheers,

Nice photos Antii.

No snow here.... Just miserable, damp, dull weather !

Cheers,

It's been a while since last reply.

It's spring here in Finland too and today I swapped spikes to new pair of Metzeler MC5's. I didn't ride very much during winter, there was plenty of snow first time for years so I usually took snowmobile rather than WR.


This was taken 1.1.2018. As you can see, we had already quite much snow. That was hard ride, bike didn't go anywhere and I had slight hangover.  ;D


Some weeks later when I rode with my friend and his '88 YZ125. It was too much for the YZ, big end bearing gave up after desperate pinning in the snow.
It was pain to get it out of woods.


And today, 28.4.

This one has sat in the garage since last summer. It's not been insured since I bought YZ.

So... After some thinking I decided to sell this beauty two weeks ago. Fortunately it found a good new home because my cousin wanted to buy it. I know he respects bike as it is and doesn't ruin it anyway. And I can still buy it back in the future. ;D

I hope (and I know) my cousin enjoys about the bike as I did when I owned it these 3 1/2 years.

Thanks.
