Thanx MT. I guess I just went with the crowd on the BB handguards. They are really good quality and were the ones that seemed to fit the 800XC "the best"

Honestly, I have yet to recall a crash...

You're correct. However I mounted this way because I don't like the way my clutch cable rested right on the top of the handguard.

I had a pretty bad crash on my old bike and the handguard rotated...

Busted handguard & Cleghorn Ridge

I dropped my bike on the trail a few weeks back and didn't have a chance to replace the left Barkbuster VPS handguard until yesterday. Instead of the standard bare aluminum finish I had both of the...

HA HA! I think I waved to you. I was heading down East Fork Rd. toward Hwy 39 (Azuza Canyon). You were parked on a turn-out right? I saw you head on with the twin headlights and said "Hey that looks...

I haven't compared them side-to-side but I would say that they are equal or maybe even better than the stock mirrors in terms of visibility. You'll notice that the shape of the folding mirrors is...

Mirror Mirror

Swapped the stock mirrors for a pair of folding mirrors that I had orignally bought for my KLX250S. The weather was pretty nice today, so I rode all the way up from OC to the base of Mt. Baldy. The...

Sunny Day

Nice warm day here in OC. We had some pretty strong Santa Anas blowing Friday and Saturday, but thankfully the gusts have abated without any major firestorms erupting. Took the Tiger up Indian Truck...

Thanks Dude. yeah, I'll let you know how they hold up. I'm doing an OC to San Diego run on Friday, so I plan to hit both asphalt and dirt pretty well.:wings

Nope, just standard 2" pivoting Rox Risers. As I mentioned in a previous post, they are a "must-have" farkle for the 800 XC. IMHO. I could ride without them, but having the extra 2" lift seems to be...

It's not waterproof, but it is pretty rugged. Cases for phones and tablets are a dime a dozen and most of them are pretty cheap in terms of quality. This one was around $20, but it was the rather...

Agreed. Any of these types of solutions can be a distraction though. The dedicated GPS option is always nice (waterproof, easy to use while wearing gloves, etc.), but they don't seem to be very...

No, you're not going crazy. I thought I had inadvertently deleted my post last night, so I reposted the pics again. It still hasn't shown up. I have a feeling that it's stuck in moderator-land.:dunno

I actually run a charger cable from the tablet to the powerlett outlet on the bike. I just removed it for the pic. I'll probably put together a more "elegant" power connection setup later. When the...

Inner-tube choices?

Hey Folks,

Can someone please point me to the thread/URL regarding spare inner tubes for the 800 XC? 150/70-17 in the rear is a bit of an odd duck. Like most people, I prefer to carry standard or...
