If anyone's got a line on a good running engine on the west coast (PNW is best), I'm in the market (again)

Green Mtn. maybe, off Seabeck Hwy? Pretty fun place to ride, although there are hikers, mtn bikes, and horses.

Ouch, not sure it would have completely prevented that, but the XRsOnly case saver is pretty burly and seems like cheap insurance?

Nope, not green mountain, I am very familiar with that area. This was just a bunch of random brush picker trails and logging roads.

I'm a fan of the rk chain 520exw

I run it on my XR currently and also run it behind my very healthy built KX500 and it puts up with that abuse with a huge paddle

The best chain i have managed to find for the XR is D.I.D 520ZVMX-110 Gold Extreme cost me over here 100 ( about 150 $ ) The updated Sunstar o-ring chain is very good too ( othervise honda would never use them as OEM for the pig ) and RK chains are very good also and slightly cheaper than D.I.D .
Go with the best you can find all the well known makers are making strong chains in this day and age , not worth it to save few dollars and end up paying thousands for the repair , also good chain will last you long time if cared for .

If you are running an o-ring chain, forget the oiler, it will only make a mess. IN fact, I wonder why I even oil my o-ring chain other than to keep the o-rings squishy. If the o-rings are working, they will keep oil from getting to the parts that need it, correct?

I opened up link from x-ring chain when I shortened it. I was running a DIY chain oiler. The interior had nice, clean oil. The oil will also keep the chain clean. It's not messy if you have it properly tuned.
The o-rings and x-rings have to be lubed and cleaned, but no more. This is a picture made after running an oiler on the street for 3000 km whitout maintanance. It's on a Yamaha XTZ 750. For offroad use, it's a bit tricky to install the oiler in a safe position

ADV Ready - CDT, Rio Grande Gorge, White Peak

Here is a mock up of my XR650R outfitted for long distance riding. *This June me and a small crew are embarking on a roughly 1,200-1,500 mile adventure using Dell City Texas as start/finish. Joining up on the CDT, turning around at CO, dipping down the Rio Grande Gorge, cutting across to White Peak, then south through numerous national forests.

I was looking for some more budget priced luggage alternatives and came down on running Wolfman E12 bags, a dry bag on the ManRack, and a Giant Loop Buck and Roll tank bag. The ManRack is on the smaller side, which I got so I dont get tempted to over-load if I used a larger rack. I like that the Wolfman bags dont need any additional brackets or supports. I am running the GL heat shield also.

I am going to be ruthless about packing light (much lighter than my last TAT and other adventures on my DR650). The crew can also spread the load on things like tools, tubes, cooking gear, and other items we can share. I hope to end up with a smaller dry bag on the back, so I can have plenty of room get my weight back when needed.

The XR also sports a steel sub-frame just for added peace of mind when carrying a load.

Also, I highly recommend Ironman Dual Sport for your luggage and bike needs. Great quick service from a local business.
