Mods to follow. I am trying to find the part number for the exhaut system I had - I think it's the same as the XR600R.
Well, I picked up my new XR-l on Saturday, and luckily the weather was good, so I rode from the dealer near my dad's in NJ to my home in Virginia, about 160 miles. Bike ran awesome, and got roughly 150 mpg. It idles a little higher than I would like, so I'll adjust that before the next ride.
Got a call from FMF, they don't make the exhaust I used to have (Ti-4 17" AMA). They only make the Ti-4 in the louder 14" (hard to believe the thing could be louder!
Not sure about mods - the only thing so far is an XRs-Only temp dip stick - which was a great addition the first time. Just happy to be back on an XR-L!
