Mikl, nice job on the build. I admire your skills, it looks like you've tackled every aspect of the work yourself, way to go!

Good idea not using the vented sidecover, even though it will give you a nice gain with the pipe and carb, the added trouble of dirty airfilters isn't worth the trouble on a long trip. I run both, about 2 days is all I can expect from the filter using the vented sidecover, it's pretty dusty around here.

Any idea of where you are weight wise? My XRR is fully dualsported and it seems we always end up on tough trails, the weight gets to be a bit much for me (5'10", 165lbs) in those situations.

I'm interested to see how the LED lights work for you, I'm considering an LED system.

Keep up the good work!
