Is there a way to bookmark post like yours for quick reference later?

She's Shaking Apart, Captain!

The previous owner of my XRL didn't use Loctite so my bike's shaking apart. I lost one nut affixing a rear peg and also both screws affixing my rear brake light. Anyone know where I can order this bolt and these screws? I would appreciate your help.

Yeah, what he said!

When I posted I wasn't thinking of anything other than a firefox browser which calls the links you save "bookmarks". I think Internet Explorer(IE) uses the name "favorites". Not sure as I have only used IE a few times...

If you don't want to have to access the internet to pull these pages you save, the only thing I know to do would be to copy the text to "Word" or "notepad". After that I'm computer challenged.

Does that help ya Fritz?

Ditto to the Spud

I have the stock '02 battery in my bike and I assume that it can crap out at any time....sooooooo.....

I finally convinced my local Honda dealer to become a Shorai dealer so I can get one cheap.....

I brought home the 9 yesterday....and then I read this stuff...Oh well, I am going to study it and see if I can seal it up.....

I saw the Shorai literature on the parts counter last couple times I've been in.

Funny(in a bad way) the PO of my bike tightened every damn nut and bolt so much I'm surprised he didn't ring them off! I had to use an impact screwdriver to get the throttle housing bolts loose. WTF?

Nut affixing a rear peg. You mean the bolt for the foot peg?
Are there still any hardware stores in Arlington? Not Lowes or Home Depot. Most older hardware stores have a great selection of standard & metric nuts & bolts.
I know for a fact the local True Value has a good selection...

Ramsey's True Value
703 North Royal Avenue, Front Royal, VA 22630
(540) 635-2547


You could also order them from here...

http://www.servicehondapsn.com/fiche...04&fveh=132657

I don't know the size of these bolts off hand but I'm sure someone will chime in who does.

They have what looks like a air valve on the top and what looks like 2 adjustment screws on the bottom of each fork leg. The top of the bottom triple stem (goes into the neck bearings) is 30 or 31 mm.
Picture of the forks and triple trees.



The top of the forks and triple tree



Bottom of the fork and what looks like adjustment screws




I am thinking of putting them on my 2003 Honda XR 650l. Anyone know if they will fit?

Thanks in advance for the help and if I posted in the wrong spot just move it. Please tell me where it got moved too. :)
They should be '89 CR forks. The advantage is that it is a bolt on ready to go triple tree,,, and looks like the XRL wheel probably fits right in there.

I bought a '92 front end and RSW Racing triples. I found out that the bottom of earlier cr forks are a smaller diameter than newer cr/crf forks,,,so the RSW bottom would not work. The triples for the '92cr500 were broken so I found an '89 triple and only used the RSW top with the '89 bottom. It was a pita but I got stiffer springs and love the way it handles. PM me if you think I might be able to help.



So now my question and I may never have to do this but on one of the forums xr400/xr600/or xr650l someone had the bearing information about a bottom bearing that fit on the bigger stems and in the XRL without machining. Anyone know this?????

In most every modern graphical browser I've used on Linux and Windows including Firefox, Opera, Chrome, several others, and even IE, pressing Ctrl + D opens a pop-up to add a Bookmark/Favorite. If you're on Mac, it might be Control or Option + D or something, I don't know - I've never had one of those, and never plan to. So you could open up the specific post you want to keep track of in a new window, then press your little shortcut key combo and whenever you open your browser it's there in the menu for you.

Thank you, Eric.

If you can't return the Shorai battery, don't fret. The Shora LFX09A2-BS12 is a good battery. I relocated this battery to the top of my air box in March of 2011, and it has performed flawlessly for me ever since.

However, based upon my research, I still believe the Antigravity batteries are the best LiFePO4 batteries currently for sale. Among other factors, the Antigravity batteries are also reported to balance all the cells of the battery automatically at a lower working voltage than the Shorai batteries. The Antigravity batteries have also survived brutal testing which destroyed several Shorai batteries.

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...=770364&page=8

Nevertheless, I still think the Shorai LFX09A2-BS12 battery is a good value at $110, delivered. I just think the Antigravity batteries are better, and worth the extra money.

I am. I also know about 2 or 3 other guys on L's that are going to make it. I have not decided if I am taking my tent trailer or just riding the bike with my gear. If I ride I just install my 15 tooth sprocket, highway pegs, and a seat pad. That makes the L into a touring bike for me. You should check out the carizo plans ride next month. A lot of the guys that do that ride do the DV noob ride. Ill decide on the trailer if I find someone to split the fuel cost with me. Here is the link to the Carrizo ride. http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...hlight=carrizo

Its a commond size, 8 x 1.25. A normal hex head can be had at Home Depot. A hardwear store in an industrial part of town will usually have button socket head and standard socket heads in alloy and stainless and high strength fasteners in alloy.
And of course there is Honda.
I would strongly recomend you fix the shaking.
Balance wheels, ture wheels ect.
Sometimes it ain't easy.

Thanks, I got it.Finally. I just made a spread sheet and I copy the web link to a cell. I made catagories and sub catigories with a description column to keep it well orginized.

I have a tough job ahead of me though. With my handy Post Bookmark Spreadsheet, or PBS, I must now go back through Toxic Britney and find all my " Best Ass Ever" favs. and bookmark them.
