Rack is from Ebay. Panniers are an old dog pack.

re: XR 650 L racks

You want racks ?
Check out this rider from Switzerland:
http://www.xlv.ch/XR/650L/travelbike.html

I like the front rack/light protector a lot...thinking of building one for the spring.

Hats off for his engineering and welding capacities.

hellcat,yea a saw that setup before on the guys bike.very nice and strong looking!im making a new rear saddlebag and top rack system where the saddlebags will lift off in one section so it will only take about a minute to put on and off.i have a pic of the top rack so far and almost done with the saddlebag part.

Cast wheels on XR650L

Kubiak
I like those cast wheels. Tell me about how you managed to find and adapt them to the XR650L. What bike are they originally from? What size are they? How do they work? If the conversion is not too expensive, I'd like to put cast wheels on mine.

Thanks,

Doodlebug

Kubiak--
Thanks for the info about the wheels. I am always looking for moto projects and new wheels seems like a good one.

Anyone have any more pics of the SRC rack? It does not appear that they make it anymore. Where does it mount in the front under the side cover?
Thanks.

Is this damage from sliding down the tarmac?
