Yup.gotta split the cases and install the XR600R countershaft...if you want the higher spline count shaft.....or you can use an earlier XL600R shaft.either way you`re going to split the cases..

Here's an interesting tire-changing tool.



You can buy it for 99.00 Euros, plus tax, plus shipping costs from Estonia. Here's a link to the website.

http://www.veebiinfo.ee/v1/page.php?...urit&page=4540

The website states this tool will work with "hub bearings size 20mm-28mm." That can't be correct, can it? The XR650L axles are 19mm in diameter.

I prefer tire spoons, which are much less expensive. However, I'm not changing Teraflex tires, either.

HEY Spud!

So what do you think of your MT21, how many miles do you have on it?
I only have only put on a little over 300+ miles so far .
what are your thoughts on the tire so far?


MT21



D606


MT21 wrapped next to the old D606, I think MT21 is a bit smaller, even when mounted it looks smaller.



first run.



second run and the turn around point.

I only have only put on a little over 300+ miles so far and it seems a little more rounded then the D606 to me when it was new, which means it seems to be affected by ruts more and seems to loose traction a bit more and slide around a bit more as well, what are your thoughts on the tire so far?
I have ridden about 1,000 miles on my MT21 rear tire; so far, I like it. I bought the size 120/80-18, MT21 tire. I like the lighter weight and lower saddle height afforded by this tire compared to the size 120/90-18, D606 rear tire. Indeed, the MT21 rear tire seems to be more narrow than the D606 rear tire.

That's a slick tool, but it certainly is expensive, PD. I just happened upon it while surfing the internet.

Indeed, it is. I don't think one would damage his rims using that tool.

Graingers has a big slection of thermometers. Thats where I got mine.

And I guess you need different tools for different diameter tires?
Pretty slick.

Tip of the day: Anyone installing an Acerbis tank on an xrl, when the tank needs to spread to fit the frame, fill it with hot tap water and it will flex right into place. Bolt down and drain it. Let it cool before removing it to shake out the water. Gently reforms the tank to fit.
