I'm going with the IMS tank because it is the smallest. I want more range of course, but I am also doing allot of woods roads, etc., so I want the bike to remain as nimble as possible. I went out around 5 this morning and hit some dirt roads, then some of the work roads on the ski area and out a sled trail to a forest service/sled corridor and had a blast. I really missed XR's I guess. The 20mm bar risers are going to be a perfect fit I suspect. I was really pleasantly surprised by how the Trailwings handled everything. I'm running 20psi and it seems to do ok everywhere.
Question about the suspension. That seems to be the only issue I can see. It's a bit harsh. I did the progressive fork springs and that is better. I know there isn't much else to do. I soften the compression damping, right? I notice it on square edged hits and washboard on the dirt roads.
Did somebody say the Dunlop D606 front sucks?
I don't mind puttering on the slab, I can go in the woods

Where did you get the spacer?
I have the R CS sprocket but hesitate to run it if it's out of alignment.

Runs pretty darn good now. Big difference, but I was going from a bike that I don't believe even had Dave's mods. I did Dave's to my old bike and the difference was huge - especially when I added the cam.

Who knows if there isn't something different between our set-ups. I just know that mine ran like poo when it got warmed up. The plunger off of my CV cured it.

I needed a couple parts for other bikes so I was already at Rocky Mountain ATV but the needle was just $10.99. Reached the free shipping limit too. Of course had to get the adjustable Accelerator Pump cover to get there.

I'm surprised you find the front harsh, most find it too soft. Maybe lighter fork oil?

Most of what I read say the D606 front doesn't work as well as other tires for both street and dirt.

Put the R sprocket on with the flat side towards the outside or away from the motor. I don't think you'll notice any miss-alignment. Where you will see it is that the outside of the CS sprocket teeth will get a little shinny.

If it's good in the dirt I'll be happy.

It was soft before the progessive springs. I'll play with the clickers a little.
Just an FYI..... Tubliss rules! Word from Jeff Douglas is that they will have a DOT version by the end of the year! I'm already signed up.

Thanks, will do. I have a 48t steel sprocket coming too. I felt that the 45 was ok today though, but I'll swap it out and see what happens. Again, not really concerened with top cruising speed on the dreaded slab.

Yha, Yha, but some people are addicted to more than just riding. I have known people that just build and rebuild bikes for their hobbies and one of them cant even ride due to his paralysis he owns more bikes now than I have had my whole life. You remind me I need to finish up my sumo wheels as they got mothballed out of laziness "+ the fact I ride every day" and my dual-sport tires are disappearing too quickly.

Steering Stabilizers

OK folks, I'm hoping you guys want to talk steering stabilizers for a minute. I know things like this often mask set-up issues, but I noticed my new XRL in its current form and my old one too have this near-death front end wallow above 60MPH that's likely related to the D606s or maybe the windscreen on my bike but either way, both bikes had the same issue and these were two things in common.

So, I'm thinking of springing for Scotts because at 60MPH I'm barely breaking idle. I realize I'll need taller bars and probably have to MacGyver a few things.

Any comments, suggestions?
