It can't hit, the fender is bolted to the swingarm so it moves with the tire. I have about 800 miles on this with no issues. I can easily remove it if I want to put the 18" wheels back on.

I don't ride single track on this pig. Just asphalt, gavel and forest service roads.

It's great having big sticky tires and good brakes.

I think they mean the real fender.

I used to hit the fender behind your battery mount and kiss the muffler on the way by too. It was the fast two track where I'd use up the suspension, not single track.

Yep that battery would be gone

The battery isn't set in to the stock fender, when the shock bottoms it will make contacted with that hugger and or tire

OK you guys had me worried. So I disconnected the shock linkage and jacked the rear wheel all the way up. The only thing my homemade hugger hits is the rear turn signal mounts.

The fender just pushes down against the tire a bit. I tried to get a picture but there isn't enough room to get the camera in there. If the battery was anything but a 2 cell it would hit. It just barely clears.

Thanks for freaking me out

Thought about tire growth at speed?

Kawa Reg

[QUOTE=Sean-0;21654457]i went with this option

My bike was rewound to 200 watt ...running up to a reg/rec ..then all pwr to battery then everything runs of from there ...KISS

has been flawless ..I recommend these anit grav batts super light weight very small



reg/rec from a kwaka 1000


Good thinking
Noticed that on one of your previous posts Sean-O
Guess that removes concerns about the OEM and BD regulators holding up to the increase in capacity.
How's it go with heat or do you rely on the mount/dash plate acting as a heat sink?

JM It only gets hot when I don't have the pwr turned on and yes the dash acts as a heat sink

when I have my headlight running its enough it seems to keep the reg cool ..I have only ever noticed it getting warm when im tinkering with no air flow

Or if you want you can easily swing down the HID to shoot directly in front of your front tire and run both lights in traffic. Seldom get flashed that way. Flip up the HID some for max off road.

Just curious, what size front wheel is that? What bike is it off of? Why'd you switch from a 21?

Ugh...

I just found a crack in my wheel. It was actually found before my dual sport trip weekend, but as far as I know, it could have been there for 1000's of km's. I went on the trip anyways.

I got a few pics. I'll post them up when I get a chance. The XRR did well and was dropped the least out of all bikes (once). The other bikes were (3) WR450's, (1) 350 bored to 390, and (1) 570.

Way to represent Shibby; most xrr riders are far more advanced than the average, IMHO. We generally have larger gonads too.

I have ridden with cracked rims on MTBs, and it seems like I had a cracked front rim before it was destroyed in a collision with a car. I want to say don't worry about it, but that maybe something that only applies to the peddle bikes.

I was somewhat worrie at first, but then thought to myself, just how long could that have been there? I've changed tires a few times but lets face it I don't look TOO close at it. I've never really thought it would happen to me. We were loading my bike and my buddy said my rim is cracked. I figured he was BS'ing me till I looked!

Riding down the road was wondering do I worry about the slow single / double track hard hits, or the pothole on the gravel road doing 100 km/hr. Eventually I just stoped thinking about it. 670 KMs of rough trail and road and the crack hasn't moved.

I'll be borrowing a buddies front wheel for the Tour of Idaho this summer. Then I'll probably strip this bike down and sell it. Keep an eye out for a good, lightly used XRR in the future. Might want to buy somebody's stock suspension, at least the rear shock. I have another set of forks already.

Pictures maybe tonight. I'm working off 2hrs of sleep so we'll see how far I get. I have to run to the other side of town to pick up my dog here after work.
