Well i have a cush drive and would get another if need be. Do you have to have it - No. But i believe it helps so i'll continue to use it nothing like a good wank!

Now back to your actual question.
You will need a bigger brake calliper bracket if you use a bigger front disk i use 270mm dirt and road so its quick an easy to change works well for both if you were doing motard racing you may want bigger again but im not sure.

Youll probably wont different gearing for your motard as the overall wheel diameter is smaller so youll want a smaller rear sproket front you may be able to keep if you it works for you'll also want a second chain so that you dont have to shorten your dirt one. And it makes for an easy changeover.

Some people use the shorter front guard but its up to you not sure if theres any benefit i dont use my motard kit often so never bothered.

It is a lot of cash, but I would do it again for sure. The other thing I found on ride is sometimes the cush lets you carry a higher gear through a corner when on road, without the cush you feel the labouring a lot harsher and forces you to change down, but with the cush a lot of the time it cushions it and feels fine. It certainly makes the WR feel more like a dual sport on slab.

I did a 250 odd Km loop on it out your way the last 2 weekends.

Since you want to do track days maybe you should spend the extra money on a slipper clutch. That will remove what I think is the major shock loading on the gearbox i.e. banging it down a few gears as you come into a tight corner.

There is obviously a lot more load on the box under acceleration with the lack of wheelspin but it is still smooth so I think a cush hub will make sfa difference when you roll on the throttle.
