GPR also makes a damper for the XRR that puts the peg in front of the steering head so as not to block the oil filler. I like my GPR on my CRF and will probably get one for the XRR. I would also recommend a Fat bar, as the tapered bars are much stronger than the 7/8 bars. I used to bend bars every other week, now I've had the same set for 3 different bikes!

Zap, what do you mean that you don't want to burn one?

I chg the oil every 3 rides and the valve adj and oil filter every 6 (my rides are usally about 100 to 160 miles). I know that's pretty frequent but I got the time and like the piece of mind of knowing everything is correct before I head 60 or 70 miles out into the boonies.
Thanks Chris, the bike was warm as it only ran for about 30 seconds.
I'll leave it for a while and re check them later.


Dave,

Heat induced bad things!

If they get too tight(this creates heat), you can actually burn the edge of the valve and seat away....then you have to rebuild the top end and replace the valves/seats/or both........$$$$$$$$.

Not for long distances, but I've done it in pinches with no technical/mechanical problems. I think the only thing to worry about is comfort--the seat's pretty crowded with two on it.

OK guys, I'm running into a problem with getting my bike inspected in NC, they require that you have a Hi/Low beam, and I have a 8in BD halogen on my bike and do not want to get rid of it. I would like to know if anyone has run into this problem and how they got around it?

I would really like to fab up a small halo light and cage that would double with the 8in and have a kill switch for the 8in, instead of buying the BD enduro kit, any thoughts welcome.

Thanks

Hey Hardline:

I just picked up some passenger peg braces for my pig. Momma wants to go for some rides, as well.

I don't see why the BRP can't handle it. We use to ride 2 up on my White Whale ('97 XR600R) quite often, in some pretty gnarly spots. Granted, not for more than a couple of hours, but the wife unit loved it.

I recall going through more chains and sprockets in those days. Coincidence? Beats me.

Dave

My new XR650

Had to post some pics of my new XRR. Really happy with it so far. Loads more fun than my KLR. My KLX300R would give it a run for its money on trails, but it doesn't have a plate. This one came with a Baja Designs kit. Nice triple clamps and bar, handguards and bashplate. Also came with big gas tank plus the stocker. Can't wait to take it on a long ride in the desert...

Here are some pegs I bolted on my XR. My girlfriend hated riding on the back of the bike though. There really isn't that much space back there. I don't think your wife will be too impressed to be honest.

Are those the BD units or are they off something else. It would be for short rides, also to take my 10yr old daughter for a spin here and there.
