If you are looking for the blue ones, no.

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

Go ride one before you buy, preferably one that is setup.
Thanks for the input, and thanks TN Thumper for the bird-doggin'...this bike intrigues me.

Yep, the blue ones were the JC version.

Yep, that's the daddy! Some of the Baja bikes had both clamps blue and some just the top one, but the top one is the tricky one because it is etched with JC's signature. When they do show up it seems so many people are after them that they sell very fast.

BRP said they could sell me their new ones un-anodised, but when I agreed to go that route they became less helpful and never got back to me with a price....

Slickwill do you not use your Scott steering damper with your Motard setup?

The damper had been pulled before I purchased the bike and I've never had the money to buy one. However, even on road courses at triple digits I've never had the slightest hint of needing one.

Why do you want one so bad?

Wouldn't it be better to get something designed for a damper, like a GPR sub mount?

Or is it jus the blue?

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!
Try them both! Setup is the key! I'm more of the XRR type, it is much more dirt worthy as it is basically a desert racer! I like the kick start vs the electric! call me crazy but it always starts even after sitting in the garage for months on end! It really does start easy, as long as you know the drill! So many good upgrades are available. I Started by setting up suspension, electrics, ergo's, then carb, cam, and exhaust! About 18,000 miles of abuse later I cannot fathom any bike to replace it.
It is a powerful dirt bike that loves stretching it's legs and begging for more!
The only problem after riding the OBDR last year 1500 miles, turn signals don't work..... not a problem, just to lazy to go find out why.... the rest of everything still works perfectly, ride, rinse, put away, repeat! It is a sledgehammer!

I agree, there is no replacement. I have found my kick starter works better than the e-start on the wifes 250 or the wr450. And the bike has never left me stranded, except when I snapped a chain.

Are you the original Pigpen? Borynack that is?
