I've used this tail tank and their number plate tank

I think they make a side panel tank too. And there are so many options out there. But I've seen a few fires and I am now reluctant to use this sort of thing. My wife's RM80 doesn't hold enough gas to do anything especially when she has to run wife open in sand washes to keep up and there are no aftermarket tanks and we tried a few products but in the end I just got her a different bike with much better fuel economy for long rides. If I was to do it I'd be thinking of some sort of double safety like a bladder inside a box but I am just against the idea of having that much fuel all around me in plastic.

Not that anything can go wrong...

I meant armor for me, haha. I'm about to swap those knobbies off for some all terrains, I think that might lower it a quarter inch, not enough to make a real difference. As for starting, I started the bike easier than the previous owner. I can start it in 1 or 2 with it about 55f outside. I haven't checked to see if this thing is uncorked or not. Whether or not it is, I think I'll leave it alone, as it runs so great and I don't feel like jetting it. Ebaying for tires right now. And I need a front rim.

I should search this forum but I thought I'd just sneak the question in. What's a good on/off road tire? I'm looking for something good on the street and in gravel. Maybe a 60/40 street, or 70/30 street. Found a set of Kenda Big Blocks for $185 for both, in 90/90-21, and 140/80-18, which I think is the size I need. They're claimed to be 60/40 street over dirt, but wear out fairly quick. Any better suggestions? Is a 2007 XR650L rim the same as this 2002 XR650R? I found one cheap.

Ohh and I got my first compliments on my bike today. Some guys came over here for something and thought it was a new bike, haha.

The MAXXIS 6006 probably the ONLY TRUE 80/80% Dual function tyre made.

Welp, deal fell through on my XRR I had for sale...gonna finish the plating process and am thinking about making it a dedicated SM. Lowered, huge front brake, pumped engine.

What's a good donor for the front suspension?

Why lower it? The 17" wheels lower it quite a bit already and with the massive grip on pavement, you'll run out of cornering clearance. I drag pegs easy on mine at full height. I would go with CRF450 forks if you want USD.

Should get this in the mail in a day or two. The most I have ever done on the XRR in a single day is 110mi. I hope to change that soon when I get the suspension back from the shop.

Exactly what I'd say.
