My bike is plated and street-legal for Texas. In Texas I don't need blinkers. It looks like Utah requires blinkers. Am I going to risk a ticket with Moab LEOs if I don't have blinkers?

Heavy, yes. But I think it looks as good as most aftermarket pipes (at least the visible part).

The pipe on my prior xr650l, now that is ugly.

Float bowl - overflow tube missing?

I am looking to buy my first DR650. One bike I'm looking at is a 2005 with an FCR 41 carb, and FMF Powercore 4 pipe. It seems most of the Keihin carb conversions use the 39 rather than the 41. I've...
