Yes! financing is available. Nothing down, wash your helmet today.
I understand your concerns. Rest assured, unlike some folk who have stuff on their heads that legends are made of, I am a pretty well kept guy.
I thought his handle is OFFandON?

Techforlife can fix up your CDI by mail in less time than you can get the tools out, watch a YouTube video, and have a beer. Not to mention my soldering skills are as clumsy as typing on a virtual keyboard.

Thanks again Mr.Life.
Does anyone know if Honda has fixed the reliability problems with these CDI's?

I read an article about Honda redesigning the CDI and adding a few more options to the XRL. They were going to add a gear to the transmission, put in roller rockers, update the dash, make it EFI... then I heard this loud beeping and had to wake up....

Just kidding, I've been up for 27 hours and I'm stuck at work. Honestly though, even though it's the high fail part of the bike, it's still pretty reliable.

But with that being said...

I don't always ride my XR650L, but when I do, I carry a spare CDI. Stay running my friends

Same problem right up to current models,no improved CDI.....

I`ve repaired them as new and newer than 08 and under 5k miles........

It seems though,that the resolder ones stand up good....i`ve not had one fail yet in all these years.....except one i sent ShooterDave.his died immediately and never could be repaired after...

Eventually someone is gonna tell me their repaired one died again........i`m just wondering when.......geeezzz it`s been 4 years i think..and i`ve done a pile..i`m kinda intetrested to see how long before i hear of one i did or someone did themselves actually dieing again..

Your question is timed perfectly. I have this for sale now. My wife's car.
2007 350Z Enthusiast model 6 speed manual, 81K I think. Cool, temperature wise, black cloth seats and interior. Well maintained. Within last year, new Interstate battery, new rotors and pads. Car is running Bridgestone 960 GT tires mounted with the new brakes.

The Enthusiast model is built for speed. Nothing extra. It of course has PW and locks, power o/s mirrors, PS, PB, auto A/C, and a set of headlights that melt paint but does not have power seats or curse. Radio/CD is minimum level as is sound insulation. The 3.5L fuel injected V6 blows through a well designed exhaust and has a wonderful sound especially at it's astounding and quickly achieved red line. The car has operator adjustable shift light! The dash is serious business. Big vintage looking gages mounted in pods standing proud of the dash contour. On board info center keeps driver well informed. This is a Sports Car not some fluffed up hot sedan. The sway bars are massive with the lowest ride height of this model line and a slightly negative camber angle all around on it's 18" 45 aspect ratio tires. You feel the road. 225 up front and 245's in the rear. Have you ever driven a car with Z rated tires? This would be an great track car.

Thoughts?

The CV carb is actually pretty good at coping with elevation changes.

A good trick is to make a sizeable removeable opening in the airbox to lean it out at high elevations. Or just strap the side cover to something.

Speaking of this, anybody got the rubber seal/bladder thingy that goes inside the cap of the IMS tank for the XRL? Mine has rotted out in the past year (must be the ethanol blended gas). I could buy an entire cap from RM/ATV but... Some of the guys here seem to have endless spare parts.

Another question: who has used the Corbin seat for the XRL? I know the Renazco is the preference of prominent contributors (take your bow Steve & others) so that doesn't need to be brought up. Just asking about the Corbin only.
