Thanks Dave,

Think I may end up going with a new one. Not sure if I want to pick up an OEM. It is going to go on a new rim. Do you know or does anyone else know of a good aftermarket one? And if there is issue with having this type of setup? I want to be able to use the stock OEM one on my Dirt wheels and an aftermarket on my sumo wheels.

Thanks Spud for the link, I need to look into the capable disks you mentioned.

The gravel roads in Idaho that are not plowed during the winter are finally starting to melt.



I just installed a Dunlop, D606 rear tire, and it does a pretty good job in the snow and mud.



My CST, Surge I, front tire continues to perform well under all conditions; I am very pleased with this front tire.



Here is a photo of my Dunlop, D606 tire with 550 miles of wear.



Here is a photograph of my CST, Surge I, front tire with 2,750 miles of wear.

EBC makes a replacement rotor for the OEM that works just as good, and costs about half as much.

Thank you for the good tip, Walter. I believe the equivalent, EBC brake rotor is EBC part #MD1004.

New to me BRP

Hi XR650L owners,

BRP Noob here, I just put a deposit on a well set up 2008 XRL for sale in the Flea Market. I am planning on riding the CD trail this summer and this bike looks like the perfect tool. I am going out to Colorado at the end of the month to inspect the bike and close the deal. Any weak spots on the BRP that I should pay close attention to?

Thanks

Things are thawing nicely over in the Boise area as well. I hope to get out and see if I can push some snow this weekend.
