Of course if you are on a bike why the hell would you stop anyway...
Probably written to be left up to the discretion of the officer.

I guess I fail to see the difference between using an app as a navigation aid or a dedicated Garmin or similar. At what point do they start pulling people over for not knowing where they're going for the first time in their life?

Look at wheel bearings + steering head + swing arm pivot + what everyone else said first

No idea.... This is a spy picture that I may not have been supposed to post.

Could not help it.

To me, the roller rockers are the last little nit picky thing that I have about the antiquated air cooled motor. I think with this mod the motor would last a lot longer...

It will definitely add some weight, but I'll take the trade off

CW has built these in the past without great luck, and now increased the bearing size. Makes sense to me

I'm stoked to see the cast head he mentioned (slipped out )

My thoughts exactly. I got the spy photo also

Could not help it.

I did.

What about a center cam bearing instead of just running on an oil film on the head.

It will definitely add some weight, but I'll take the trade off

There is no bearing. Just a hardened roller on a hard pin. I've asked.

Even since riding the GS through Death Valley the XR seems like a small 250 to me. I've been supermoto style riding it since. Even backed it in slightly at an intersection. Just saying.

Tap rear brake, pitch it and pin it.
