Because they gotta do paperwork to get them out of country. Just hit your dealer.

Well 220+ mile ride from LaConner to Long Beach, WA. Handled great! Could only tell it was there on steep hills. Toy hauler?

Lemme try again: "Walking speed trail" A trail that has a lot of technical, slow sections that require you to ride at or near the same speed that you would travel if you were walking.
So... you get out of the really slow (walking speed) section and shift up to second only to realize that it is too tall, so you shift back down to first only to notice that it's too low, repeat...
I also have an FCR and my engine also runs very well, but you lug it too much and it gets erratic.

It could also just be a product of my lack of talent coupled with the trails that we ride.
DAMMIT' Thumper, you gave in too quickly.
My entire plan to spin your " fatally flawed" comment into a " center of gravity" eraser has crashed and burned.


I really want to ride your state. Maybe soon!!

Everyone from the spud state is not so easily lured into your trap
Come on up, but leave the Tejas potty water at home. We can wander down to the local brew house and introduce you to some real beer.

Cross posting here because I think this is relevant. Dunno if this is frowned upon on ADV? My 650L is currently just sweet at 300 tank empty weight.

Many thanks to all that have contributed to this XRL now almost 5000 page thread - there's gotta be something right about a bike to warrant that level of attention

I have the non locking vent cap that you would find on a Clarke or IMS 4gal tank.

But on the way to work today there was no fuel out of the cap btw.

Downward Play in Shift Lever When in 1st--Normal?

Hi,

Am thinking about picking up a 2008 XR650L and noticed it had downward play in the shift lever when in 1st gear. Is that normal or something about which I should be concerned?

Thanks,
Jay

Oil Type Reccomendations

I believe this has been discussed before thinking of changing brand of oil. I have been using Honda 4 cycle oil. I thought Id seen where some have suggested Shell Rotella 15w40 or a synthetic Oil like Mobile 1.
Any suggestions or preference?
