Attention XRL riders: Keep the thread alive!

I've been working on my supermoto project every night this week and I've been taking notes and pictures as I go. I'll post a full report after I take it for a test drive next week. Here is a picture of the complete mock-up.There are still several critical issues to resolve before the bike is rideable.

Hey, if you figure that out I'd like to hear how you did it. I have the Acebis DS tail light adn it looks cool, but never works..I've tried everything now its either
cut out the light socket and epoxy in a auto socket or make a custom LED for it. I'd like to do the LED thing!

Just found this resistance calculator online.
http://metku.net/index.html?sect=vie...calc/index_eng

Here is another page that make it a little easier to understand
http://members.misty.com/don/ledd.html

I'm going to mess around with it and see what I come up with.

Its even simpler than that, I called radio shack and got some leds that use 12 volts, I cut a wedge of plastic and drilled the holes for the lights in the soldered it all up and glued wedge shape in tail light and presto. BRIGHT light. Ill post pics tonight.

Thanks. I plan to switch the bike back and forth from dirt trim to supermoto trim. Taking the XRL off the dirt permanently would be a real waste.

What, you don't like the fender?

Yes, of course I'm going to replace the fender. A bright red Cycra supermoto style front fender is on order.

The pipe and muffler are Big Gun Q series for the XRL.

Thanks, Dave. It's all show and no go at this point. There is a serious front rotor and caliper spacing problem that I hope to resolve this weekend. I'm also waiting on an odd size banjo bolt from Phillips-Lockhart for the caliper.

It'll be ready to chase that DRZ-SM soon.
