Nice bike (the XRL). I just sold my XR650R. Plated it first. It doubled the value.

Oh shit!
JoeXR and OFFandON, y'all want to chime in on this?

I actually took my Moose pack off my front because the flopping was causing target fixation. I wonder if I could just bolt something "under" the fender and not drill holes etc? I just bought a fresh fender with a scratch on Craigslist for $15 so I can maybe experiment. I felt compelled to take extra measures to keep the pack from falling off.

Oops. I went and did it now. Hey I've been known to drink Corona Light and I've caught lots of shit for that. I guess I drink a lot of Pacifico too. Maybe I need to check my own ventilation....

This one is a 724 10.5:1

Cloverleaf head, dished piston and Phat cam

Gotta get a 6 pack of RedBull

I'll try to not blow it up like the last one (Fukker at a KTM dealership in Miami taped a new jet to a piece of plastic and I did not get all the tape off the jet) Motor meltdown.... Crank, Rod, rings welded to the skirt... Complete rebuild, YUK

Still ran somehow

CW says to put some ZDDP in with the oil and ride it as hard as possible from the first push of the button and ride it like I stole it.... Will do!

Of course this will be after the spark plug is removed, the banjo bolt loosened and oil flow confirmed.

I got my old bike back from CW with a fresh piston (high comp stock bore), new flat track cam, stainless valves, nx 2nd and 5th, etc... It has a Mikuni pumper dialed in perfect and runs great!

I'll report back how the new girl compares

Sweet! I get my ZDDp off ebay in packs of 6 or ten or something. All my cams I've tried from him have gone through break in beautifully using this method. Can't wait to hear more!

They're very marginal in "dirt". Fire roads and dirt roads are no big deal pretty predictable. On the road they are awesome. Stick to everything even in the rain. My brother and his street bike buddies hate it when I chase them through the super tight twisties and they wave me by lol.

Thanks Walter. I think I have some aluminum sheet laying around somewhere.

Hey maybe I was hungover when I bought the C- beer... Since when is moose head the official beer. In the west I would say Kokanee is the winner in the beer department.



Why did you sell the R? Nice bike. I was expecting a guy to come look at my 650R tonight to buy and the donkey no showed

I finally got around to making a turn signal bracket for my pig. It only took me 6 months!

Acutally, making it only took about 15 minutes, I was tired of having it zip-tied to the brake hose.

Thats exactly why I posted the pic. of my wife on the beach. What a gal aye?

JoeXR; I think you are a pretty fart smeller, I mean smart fellow, sorry!

Serriously, you seem have your head on squarely, and I appriciate your input.

Alright, lets get this spring riding season started shall we?
I shit you not , but if her hair was just a little longer she would look just like my wife from that distance. Although my wife wouldnt wear that bathing suit.

I had Avon Pro Extreme DOT rain tires for a while. Very similar treads , but real soft. Good on asphalt , ok on grass or packed dirt , but like riding on two flat tires in the loose stuff. Front was real good. Rear never felt right , harder or softer. 1200 miles and it was done.
