Hey we're not all tiny people. I'm pushing 6'5" with a 36" inseam. Any suggestions for a bike I CAN'T flatfoot?

Yup, my big pig! '07 R1200GS I know, I know. You can flat foot all day long. Add a RDL with a +2" lift in the high position. You ain't going to flat foot that beast!



I had to put the seat in the low position to be able to flat foot.

OBTW 6'6" and 36" inseam.

Well, sorry to ask a XRL question...

But does anyone have an image of how the throttle cables route on an XR250L?

I'm looking for the whole deal from the throttle around the head stock and down into the carbs, I can't find the magic spot on mine where it's either not binding up or just plain in the wrong place.

And both of my manual's don't show cable routing.

Thanks

Really it;s a case of what meets your needs best. Personally I went with the IMS 4.0. It gave me more range than stock, but didn't give me so much to detract from the overall nimbleness of the BRP . I will admit on my latest journey an even greater range might've been nice though. Isn't the Acerbis like 5.8 gallon and the Clark 4.7?

My Dumbass moment

So, I set the valves last night........Probably should have made sure it was at TDC on the RIGHT STROKE!

HAHAHAHA!

Wow, that was one noisy valvetrain!

Fixed that without issue.....runs like a top now.

I say go with the Acerbis. Yes, it is 5.8 gallons but you don't have to fill it up all the time. It is nice to have the extra range for those trips out to the middle of nowhere. Also, the shape of the Acerbis I think adds a little extra air flow for motor cooling.

Wow, that's some kind of seat on the GS. One of those fit on the XRL without too many mods?

Kinda sounded like shaking a can of paint, but with 4 mixer balls.

Either way, it was pretty obvious right away.

My brain is not working today, I currently have a 120-80-18 on the rear of my bike. I am looking to go with a wider tire but any taller. what is a good size? A little shorter would be fine.

I agree with Haywood. The stock tank is nowhere near big enough to ride in many of the places I go. Some of the Death Valley loops I've been on are in the 200 mile range. I got the Clarke 4.7 gallon tank because I though the Acerbis was just too big. The Clarke is a great tank, but I kick myself for not getting the bigger Acerbis for those >200 mile loops where no gas stops are possible.
