Garthe, I followed your link from the XR650R thread, very cool. I'm 6'6" as well and race a 72 CZ 400. I'll post a picture as soon as I figure out how? I also have a XR650R for dualsport.

If you have to kick it 20-30 times you don't really know how to start it. I killed myself riding extreme A-rated trails when I first got mine but now no problem after I pitch it off a cliff.

BRP Is The Best

I have used BRP products for years. Jim the owner is a very experienced off-road rider and knows what he is doing. His products are the best, period. Buy with confidence.
