Its overall width is 7". Only an inch more than the 4" fan. It also moves twice the cfm.

What are your thoughts?

There is a guy on E-bay that sells SPAL fans for about 45$. These are the same fans as the KTM's, just no shroud. Still work great and provide enough airflow to keep the 650 cool in stalled traffic, etc.

If he doesn't have the "pull" ones, send him an email. He'll let you know when he will have more.

Small brackets have to be made from there. This thread has examples of many different ways of doing that.

They are back in stock now but twice the price. I have aftermarket bars and was willing to tke a chance at $90 but at $200, I'll pass.
National Cycle has one that fits pretty good. Deflector is the model I have. You can see my ride report for the sample. It would fit a big headlight a bit better, but I think it was quite a bit cheaper. Not the best looking, but functional.

Alternately, lots of people use custom fitted 990 windscreens for about 60$

It looks like they make nice stuff, but weird that the wireless dimmer is cheaper and has more capacity than the rotary?

Quick question that I should know. Just rather check with you guys before making a mess. Tried searching but our vast basis of knowledge here almost makes it more difficult to search out.

Can you check / remove, change clutch by tipping the bike on it's side and not drain the oil?

Doing the Tour of Idaho T1 in a few weeks and want to make sure my clutch is in good working order. No signs of it not being, but rather check then have issues on the trail when I'm somewhat in the back country. My squirrel hunting skills are lacking these days...

the rotary looks much more simplistic and functional. This is why I picked it up. much easier to mount too.

Roller shift pawl mod ( new Farkle)

Anyone know about this part?

http://www.factorypro.com/prod_pages...650,gb500.html

Apparently it's the same for all XR 650 motors. I bought one last week and hope to install in my R in Aug when I get home, am hoping it helps the shifting with the Rekluse on power off downhill glides which can be a tad notchy. I'm replacing the plates anyway so I figured while I have the case opened I should give it a try. I'll report back if I'm the first.

That looks like the XR600L series headlight surround/numberplate combo.
Gather that is held in place with OEM rubber straps?
Can you supply info re cutout size for the headlight and possibly part number?
Many thanks,

Interesting, can't wait to hear what you have to report back.

Fingers,

never even heard of it, pls do report back once installed.
Interesting to see they say the XRR was supplied from 97 onwards, I think that's a glitch - first one's were from 2000 right?
