I built my own due to a funky bolt pattern I had on my top triple/fat bar adapter that they didn't support.

cheers, Bob.
IF you still had the AT I'd say lets trade! I've lusted after them for awhile but they are rare beasts here.

I've got 3" risers with the stock cables but I believe they are at there limits.

EDIT: I also have the forks dropped about an inch to compensate for the lowering link so under those circumstances the handlebars about 2" higher than stock...

Hey Spud, where did you get those clamps you have the tube mounted with? They look like truck exhaust mounting brackets???
I can only find hose clamps around here, that have no housing for the screw part. Serious jarring has caused me to loose two clamps over the last couple years. The screw just jumps out of the threads and it pops right off. I'll get home from a ride and see the tube hanging at a 45 angle by one clamp.
I only use two to begin with. I don't what to find out what would happen if I ran over it at speed. Could be a moment!

thats as far as i got and i know its not pretty but itll do what i need it to but i havent made any suports goin from the foot pegs yet (still tryin to figure out how to route them around the battery and supertrapp) but i painted em so they dont rust. still tryin to figure out how to mount the .50 cal cans so i can remove em whenever i want without alot of effort. o the rack is off a 70's sizuki 125 2stroke thats been sittin for about 18 years. i figured the old man wouldnt mind if i used it since it needs a new carb and he hasnt had any interest in fixing it since he bought it (18 years ago) but if anyone has any ideas please share

Same thing here.
Before the snow:

Downtown Boise in the middle. Owyhees off in the distance.
The header colored up nicely after I polished it over the winter.

Tire disposal

It was time for a new rear tire on the K bike. The Pirelli Diablo Rosso II had been a very good tire. A tire with a name like that deserves a Vikings Burial. Soooo it got one!

im glad it wasnt the problem too. even used, these carbs can be pretty expensive.
before daves mods were done to the bike it was possible to get just over 60mpg and after daves mods i would average about 52 with a low of 48 and a hi of 57. i think i have a little more than 10,000 miles on the bike since daves mods and the mileage drop was around 1500ish. i used the shim from a dyna jet kit but went with kehin for everything else. air filter has been cleaned and one of the last things i tried was blowing the carbon out of the exaust. i have not checked gas mileage since doing the exaust but i didnt see any carbon come out when i tried that. it will be pretty warm this week so maybe i can put a couple of tanks of gas through it to see where im at now.

Kush Sprocket

Lack of a cush drive on the XRL bummed me out.

$500 for a RAD cush drive hub bummed me out more.

So I put on the XRR counter sprocket and said "good enough."

Now another option is available...

KUSH SPROCKETS! $100

Compaired to a full cush drive hub it is hard to believe there is enough rubber in that sprocket to provide much cushion or to take all the abuse and last very long. Let us know how that works out.
Your post here went in my Index.
Thanks!

If your buying a used XRL the one big thing to check for is worn countershaft splines.

Thanks for the replies, so I guess the XR suffers from the same problem as Africa Twins if the bike is run with the chain is too tight.
