It's Moose Hunting Season in Idaho. I don't have a Moose tag, which is undoubtedly the reason why I saw these two bull moose during a recent ride.

Took a little trip down to the lower Smokies and north Georgia. It was cold in the mornings but perfect later in the day. We even saw snow above 4000'. New motor performed flawlessly.

Also... That's good looking XRL and looks like a good trip. Quick question... It looks like you have Manracks "SD rack." I'm debating between getting the SD or the Rubicon. I'm wondering if you ever notice the SD's side bars getting in your way, rubbing your legs, etc? Ever ride 2-up with that rack... same question... bars bother the passenger? With those extra braces/bars the SD rack looks like it would support alot more weight than the Rubicon so I'd like to go that route but not at the cost of being bothersome to me or a passenger (my wife).

Thanks...

Don't I wish! I have the schematics and I have tried every possible wiring configuration for the three wires to no avail with the exception of putting hot to ground(I've found that's usually not a good thing). I can get each filament to come on separately and the brake switch IS functional so that should rule that out.

No time to continue with this as I'm heading to work. I will reply in about an hour.

Great pictures Spud. The first one's a tittie sucker, but the second one is worthy of 185 grains of well placed attention.

Tail Light Wiring

The tail light has three wires going to it. But you know this. What you need to do is find the common/ground/neutral which is usually the wire soldered to the side of the bulb socket. The other two wires go to the bottom of the socket. One for the running light and the other is the brake (bright) side. All you have to do is take the socket out of the tail light assembly and LOOK at what wire goes where. IIRC the wires are RED, WHITE and BLACK and NO, I don't know which wire does what. And I'm not taking my XR600 apart to look.

Dual Sporting in So Cal

Hey XR Badger, welcome to the clan. If you're anywhere near the OC, we'll need to do a ride some time. I just finished another epic adventure with my brother last weekend through Kern River area (ride report to follow). We've got some great places to ride that you'll only get to by one of these.

Hello RZRob,and thanks for the welcome. I will definitely look you up when I get a chance to get down to the OC. Right now I am up in the pumpkin patch Calabasas. Once I get a few more miles on the pig, seems I'm destine for the swine having moved from a hog to a pig, and get a few modes done, I will certainly be looking for people and places to ride with. It certainly looks like you have some nice riding there and look forward to putting some miles in down there. Thanks again!

My 2012 XR650L

Anyway, here is my 2012 XR650L.Ö. After 1600mi, I think Iíve got the setup shook out and setup the way I want it. Disclaimer: It is setup the way I want it. Iím 6í3Ē 215lbs.

Here is a list of what Iíve done so far:
X Jet kit (for stock carb that had Daves mods)
X Foam Air Filter
X Smog block off
X FMF Q4 Pipe
X FMF PowerBomb header
X 14 tooth front sprocket (have 13 tooth for tight trails and 15 tooth for those high speed rides)
X Rich's custom seat
X Short fuel tank vent
X Pro Moto billet rear rack
X Keihin FCR41 carburetor
X Vapor computer w/dashboard
X Adjust rear brake down (for comfort)
X Aluminum skid plate
X 5.8 gal Acerbis tank
X Custom made saddlebags w/ huge brake/turn LEDs (note how they mount on rear footpegs)
X PowerMadd Riser after ProTaper riser didnít do the job for me. (Ergonomics were wrong)
X CR High ProTaper
X Cycra Pro Bend Bark Busters & Guards
X IMS Wide foot pegs
X Cee Baileys Low Profile Tinted Windshield
X LED tail light
X MT21 tires F&R
Plus lots of little things and details no one will ever knowÖ.such as, I cut out the side number plate to make accessing and cleaning the air filter easier while the saddlebags are on. Still have the stock seat for trail riding. Reshaped the stock exhaust heat shield to fit over the FMF PowerBomb headerÖdetail is how itís mounted with factory Honda hardware ;)


Here is what I plan on doing soon (winter is coming after all):
Fork and shock job
Lower front fork guards (Carbon Fiber)
Swing arm guards (just heavy stickers)
12v Accessory Plug
Ram mount for Garmin GPS (I havenít decided which one. Iím leaning towards TouraTech)
Zumo 660
License plate lock box
Baja Designs 8" headlight (Iím still weighing the pros and cons. I like the Hi/Low)
Upside down forks (Iím not sold completely on this one?)
Scotts Stabilizer


YES, it runs great! I find myself giggling in my helmet.

Good idea on the sheet metal from frame to front of boxes.

RangerED. You went mod crazy. I know what you mean about the riser handle bar set up you have. The xrl Is known to have very low handlebar. I have 3 1/2 rise and cr high bend bars. I am only 5 '10' and this just barely fits me. You might want to look into kx high bend or atv high bend bars. Your bike looks good.

It's a Rich's seat. One of the best purchases for comfort. I've had XRs my whole life and don't know why I didnt do it sooner. Each seat is custom made to each specific rider. http://www.richscustomseats.com/

Steve...On the socket Solid Black is ground, Red comes out of one side of the socket and black/white stripe comes out of the other. I have black to solid green on the bike(ground) that's a no brainer, and switching the other two only makes either filament in the bulb come on but no brake light either way. It's not rocket science and the brake switch does work as per my meter. What a hell am I missing?
