I love the look of the tray, too. Another armchair driver thought... how well will that foam hold up? I assume you have plans for something other than just the foam to keep the positive terminal from shorting out to the frame, right?

The way I get my bike up on the center stand (as someone suggested here ages ago, but don't remember who to give credit to)

Stand by the kickstand, put the kick stand down, grab the frame under the back part of the seat on the other side of the bike with your right hand and the part of the frame by the carb with your left. Use your right foot to put the center stand down onto the ground, level out the bike so both feet of the stand touch then have the pig back.

It isn't easy and takes a little getting used to, but I found this was a lot easier than trying to rock it back with the handlebars.

YMMV

Try this. Left hand on left handlebar grip, right hand lifting frame on same side while standing on lever arm... On the xrl, the passenger peg mount bracket makes a nice handle. And yes, important to make sure both legs of the center stand are contacting the ground level before heaving up and back. Seems easy enough once mastering the technique.

OSG, try reinstalling the factory passenger peg mount bracket!

95 xr250L

Been looking for another dual sport for a while. Have a xb12s that is my full time bike, but wanted to get back into the woods.

Found this 95 XR250L. 1795 original miles. Been sitting for 5 years. Picked it up for a grand. Cleaned out the carb last night.....runs like a top.

Looking forward to a lot of great riding.

I only have bent/broken brake levers. I need to get a new one as well as some real handguards.

This one, so yeah, prolly won't fit with a rack.

My extra one has a rectangular loop to accept a strap, loop pointing backwards from the middle of the handle.
