XRs only has the correct one for the XRR.

Hope this helps!

Is this a normal CRF lever that uses the hotstart option for decompression?

The hotstart lever lacks the leverage needed for decomp unless you have gorilla hands. I tried it and it can work, but it sucks in my opinion. So ended up running a ASV c6 clutch lever and kept the factory perch for the decomp, and it all fits on the bars with a multi-switch.

Steel Subframe any reviews.

I was looking at the Steel Subframe from globetrotin.com

http://shop.globetrottin.com/product...&categoryId=21

http://shop.globetrottin.com/product.sc?productId=33

Any reviews. How much stronger than stock, can it take a full load of gear?

The old Pro perch had a longer lever for the decomp, but since then they standardised to the smaller levers for the more popular hot start on the newer range.

Help a brother out.....

I've got my DR up for sale or trade and was thinking about a street legal XR650R or a 650L....what are the pros and cons, basically?

Should I be concerned with the over heating issue during Georgia summer rides of the XR?
Can I get electric start on an XRR?

I want to get a little more aggressive off road, but like the idea of japanese reliability.

Thanks for your thoughts!

27,000KM, much of it offroad with ~70lbs of gear. Yes it works.

Also a popular route is to use a separate de-comp perch from an xr400 or a xr600.

I was looking too as my pivot hole is worn out from an incorrect pivot bolt.

Those asv perches are sure nice!

In the fall I installed this subframe and used it for a 13000km trip around Central America. I had the bike loaded with a drybag and two Pelican cases as side panniers.

The subframe installed to the bike ok. But I found it tougher to add the airbox and fender to the subframe. Things didn't seem to fit properly and I ended up doing some shimming to get a better fit in spots.

The subframe did last through the trip without any problems.

Awesome! That would be less ugly, good info.

I can see a way to integrate the decomp perch into the ASV, but I gots more imoprtant stuff to do.

If you can get over not having electric start (we call it being men) the xrr is way more of a bike than the xrl if you are looking to get in to the dirt. I don't think the xrl would be much change from a DR.

You can get an electric start for it, but I wouldn't.

Go ride one before you buy, preferably one that is setup.

going thru craigslist to kill time and found this:

No affiliation, just FYI.

I paid $4200 for an 07 a few years ago. Bike had less than 2K and was fully dual sported with all the doo dads.

Anyway, carry on.

Anyone seen a set of Johnny Campbell signature clamps for sale or the likes? They are proving to be the most difficult part to find for sale - and BRP can no longer supply them new
