Butt dyno says... meh. Not that big of a deal. The bike is a bit friskier 1st through 3rd, but not a big difference. I am curious to see how it does in the dirt. More to follow. For the price of admission though (I got the flywheel for a song on eBay and a friend took care of the lathe work... maybe $30 total with a new gasket), it was worth doing... I needed to know, now I do

My flywheel is still 2 pounds heavier than an XR600R flywheel... there is a LOT more chub that could be carved off. A more aggressive treatment would likely yield stronger results.

At the end of the day, the bike is one pound lighter A good dose of fiber will yield the same result though

Red,

Isn't there more to the high-rev equation on an XRL than just lightening the flywheel?

Indeed yes.... I doubt the XRL motor would ever make a decent high revving motor. If you did lighten up all of the internals and such, it would probably not last long. I just hoped to get it to spin up a bit quicker, not necessarily spin faster.... if that makes any sense

I ran my XR650L in the IRONMAN Poker run at the Desert 100 a couple weeks ago.

Video has highlights from my Gopro:



Highlights include small jumps, drops, whoops, trails, single track and hill climbs. Also a rider leaking cash when he passed me and a quick trip through trailer city.

A bunch of my friends and a couple brothers took me up there. Apparently the camp out there in keyesville all the time. Was a BLAST I'd love to get another street legal bike or 2 up there and blast around see some more of the river and some less intense trails.

On more then one occasion I have argued the point that an "L" is just too much of a heavy weight to even consider for the type of riding I have been doing for over 30 years in the forests of East Texas. But after watching this clip I guess I'm gonna have to amend my thought process and venture back to the woods and give it a try.

Great video, and good job on the editing. The pig sure looks heavy, and it made me tired just watching.

That is quite the tent city, and I even saw a wall tent with a stove pipe. Surely there was some beer drunk that weekend! Thanks for sharing.

I think you're check might get lost in the mail...

Temp: 70-ish degrees
Tires: Dual sport tires made by Kenda at 14 lbs
gears: usually first or second and rarely third (a couple extra teeth on rear sprocket)
oil temp: no clue running mobil devac 15w40

About 35 miles each lap. I was bushed after one lap and threw in the towel.

I've never rode the BRP on stuff like this. It was exhausting.
Cold beer didn't stick around long. They even had a beer garden with live music!

Whoops a re fun on an XRL aren't they? I guy I ride with bombs through whoops on his XRL. Not me!
Getting 300+ pounds of bike swapping back and forth doesn't sound like much fun.... or chickening out halfway through, cutting the throttle, hammering the face of a whoop and having the bike pile drive you on the way down.

Good video! I enjoyed it! Makes me wanna go do some trail time this weekend!

Aftermarket Exhaust Baffles

Anyone have any experience with this or something like it?

As we all know, Mr. Honda doesn't sell the OEM baffle without the OEM muffler wrapped around it...
