Probably both. Using the same polishing compound!

Probably a power buffer as well!

Here's my new bike. Some of you may recognize it as I bought it from a fellow ADVer. Has a bunch of goodies such as pumper carb, fmf q4 system, trail tech HID + Rigid LED lighting, clarke and acerbis plastics. LED signals/brake, tapered bars, etc etc. I plan on adding an oil cooler in the next week or 2, then likely nothing else. Apparently it was setup for a 200 lbs rider, so hoping i dont have to swap springs as im closer to 225.

My last bike was a 640 Adventure which I loved, but insurance was killing me, and although I have very little bad to say about it, I just wanted something lower maintanence and cheaper to run.

Yes, its in the living room TEMPORARILY while I was tinkering.


Seems that embedding with Dropbox doesn't work well. Back to photo bucket!

How many degrees have you gone? Read about your supermono a couple of years ago. Was it running a stock CDI? Does the stock CDI have a rev limiter or not?

Thanks for the info . I was pretty sure there was no rev limiter , but I didnt want to try to see if I could hit it if I hadnt already. Looks like ive got to get myself a clutch cover gasket now

So, out of curiosity, has anyone run the IRC TR8's on their XRL yet? I already ordered a set for mine, and I couldn't find any bad reviews on them. Just wondering if anyone has tried them. They look and sound good, and $150 a set is pretty good!

Just be careful about how many revs you take this engine...one of the downfalls is that the counterbalancer gear on the crank is just pressed on, not keyed....if you rev it too high constantly (9500 rpms) that gear will move on the crank, throwing your balancer out of sync, allowing the balancer to hit and possibly break the crank pin....don't ask how I know that...but Falicon can fix it! Mine is now welded to the crank.
