OEM exhaust for 96XRL

Anybody want this exhaust?
Includes both heat shields and the two bolt clamp.
I got it with my bike, The pipe has 5200 miles or less on it.
I have no idea what the hose clamps are all about. That is a PO deal. Sell or trade.
If nobody PM's me it going to the flea market.

Yep, there is still weight out there where I would'nt like it to be, but I just could'nt see any more reasonable places to mount the rear of it to, if it were'nt a brand new bike I'd have welded a brace from somewhere near the exhaust and battery box mount right out to the end of the frame.

But I decided against it in hopes someday I'll be motivated to build some pannier racks and they will add some triangulation to the rear of the frame.

This is pure speculation but I think by mounting the front mounts to the seat strap holes and putting weight there mine will probably hold a bit more than the manrack being that the front mounts are so far forward that they really don't get any weight on them when loaded, so it takes all the weight and puts it on the same rear blinker mounts, mine spreads the load on the frame better I think...so far I've had about 80lbs on it and took it through some pretty rough stuff with no ill effect, I did make sure to check the paint around the welds on the last bit of frame, no cracked paint or anything.

Good Logic

RedRaptor22, I really like that you engineered and made the system yourself. If I could, I would too - a lot of things. I guess where I was going, was that especially with a new bike, you'd be wanting to keep a factory look. I totally agree with you about getting the rear mount point as far forward as possible being a good thing. You use the same front as they do. They also have the struts that accomplish the same thing as you did for the back, but from the backside. I've got them on my bike and womp the piss out of it fully loaded.

I haven't experienced what you were saying about the front fork boots, but it may be dryer out here than back there. Again, they're factory. My thing was protecting the tubes from rock chips.

The best thing is the XR lets everyone modify it however they want.

Good Stuff

Sbeau, man I like your bike. I've got your pipe, but did the guard come with your's or did you buy that direct from FMF? Details? My pants are wasted from not having that. Also, what about the engine and headlight guards. Brand, where to buy?

Yeah, I would love to know more about that engine guard!

May have to do some chinese r&d with that, recieve and duplicate!

I have that same master cylinder guard, but I would definately like something to keep my shifter from punching a hole in the engine again, that bash guard would do the trick nicely!

Bought the pipe guard from MotorcycleSuperstore.com, I remember it cost far more than it should, but my mesh pants also have a hole in them so it was worth it.

The headlight guards and engine guards were sold as a set on ebay from TurboCity, see links above^

WOW! I'm sure it's a quality peice but I must be part KLR rider because I can see myself making that engine guard quite easily with the price on that for motivation lol.

Anybody know if there is a shop around Anchorage that can straighten my front wheel. I knew I should have sent it to Woody when I was in the lower 48. I just mounted T63s and man that thing is crooketer than a politician.

I have that same fender on my bike and I just made a plate to screw into the rear fender as far back as it would go. I messed my plate up pretty bad having it where yours is now. Even a screw protruding too far in that area will make contact with the tire, I know it looks fine sitting there and I know you did a bunch of work to get it there cause I did the same thing but you really should move it or bad things could happen, like taking a corner at speed and all that stuff gets grabbed by the tire and locks it up... ask me how I know....
