Loud tires save lives.

That's a good looking motorcycle!

Next spring I'm going to mount the stock took bag on my front fender. It will hold a 21-inch inner tube, and a stripped, Harbor Freight air compressor, which I bought on sale for $3.

I'm going to put my tire spoons and the rest of my tools in a Harbor Freight, welding rod holder, which I will mount to the front of my skid plate.

Hey, those are not only all reasonable requests, but also far less than many have done to their L! It's On AND Off, not just Off, as you should know!

At least I'm not installing fancy schmancy electric hand heaters like some. I periodically pull over and burn my flesh on the engine case, as God intended! (Actually I was really wishing I had grip heaters on a ride Saturday...yes we do get snow in SD county!)

The following PWM device has a large, robust control knob which is much better suited for the application you described. This device also costs about the same price as my much smaller controller.

I used this on my GW where I have much more real estate. I have 3 of them sitting in my drawer because there's simply not enough room on the XR. I've wanted to pull it apart to pot it smaller bit for 4 dollah ill just get the small dial.

my Scorpion Pro is directional so I didn't entertain the idea of flipping it but looking back now I probably could have gotten away with it,
I'll have to go look and see if the CST Surge l is directional just to know, apparently you haven't had a problem flipping it,
the higher mileage would be welcome but I have a feeling I'm not going to get as many as you because I am a real heavy front brake user and run low air pressure partly because I am probably the lightest rider in this forum(but from recent post I am considering raising it for street then dropping for the dirt),

Hi CW,

People need to talk about new tires because they'll really need them after they get your porn parts!
LOL

Hope you're feeling better.

10 minutes left of 2012 here in Belgium - happy new year everyone! Ringing it in in proper Belgian style, unfortunately haven't been able to get any Westvleteren yet or that would be in the glass instead :)

If the trail is straight/long enough the XRL will smoke a CRF.

Now about keeping rear tires on this beast... Smoking them knobs.

I need to ask CW about the differences between our cams if any. Since the head, porting, displacement etc. are the it should help us in jetting the HSR as we are at similar elevations. Speaking of smoking the tires, when I get mine done and get nears the end of my 606's life, I will smoke them till it's a slick and get the beast on a dyno. Don't see why it shouldn't make 60 ponies.

Now, if CW will quit working on everyone else's motor and get me that spacer, I will get to some serious tuning/wheelie-ing

Don't worry that Duvel triple is probably fair. I took some Duvel on an overnight ride and it drinks wonderfully warmer never would of thought so, but it was super. I think Duvel is one of the top 5 beers in the world.

Tires are a very subjective subject just like toilet paper. To each ones own. I have two 606 rears and a Dunlop MX51 front waiting in the wings.
Except with toilet paper I only use it on the rear, never the front.
