I finished the prep on the WR250R today, we are off to the Flinders ranges in two weeks, when I was out last Monday I got a flat in the rear, brand new MT21 tyre & heavy duty tube , rode back 30kms on a flat.

Tuesday morning I stripped the tyre & had a look, seemed ok, fitted a new tube & gave it a run & again it seemed ok but we are going 500kms away without any bike shops for at least 200kms away.

I order a new front & rear MT21 from the MX store Tuesday night, they were delivered yesterday. Removed both wheels today & fitted the two new tyres with new tubes, swapped the air cleaner, so the WRR is ready for five days riding in the Flinders & will do around 1000kms on the dirt.

Hope you have a great trip. As far as prep goes I think you've just about covered it!
What do you do about carrying kit? Are you doing day-rides from a base camp?
Ride safe,
Simon.

 we stay at one location & only carry a few tools etc. A couple of the guys also ride with AMTRA & some of the rides they do in both the Flinders & the Victorian High country they stay in a different location every night & have to carry gear with them....bugger that

Day or half day rides from our base which has fuel on sale, not a lot up there so the rides are planned around fuel range, this is the first time I've taken the WRR up there & it will be nice with the longer fuel range.
