I'm running the BRP upper triple with the scotts submount setup. For the bars I'm running the Windham Bend Pro-Tapers. They were the tallest bar I could get without running a lot of sweep.



Not the best shot but you can see the bars/risers in this pic.

Nice set up... I'm 6-04. I'm looking at various bar risers. How much can you go up with stock cables?

I went with BRP submount, Tusk risers, and Windham pro taper bar. With the extended cables (recommended by BRP), I have very high bars but still plenty of slack. Don't know if the stock cables will get that high, I just assumed they wouldn't and swapped 'em out.

17s? or 21/18?

If 21/18, I'd throw one of these on the back http://www.americanmototire.com/cata...ath=33_138_142

and find something else for the front.

If 17s, cheap and decent are kinda mutually exclusive.

I love being able to clean it then pour it down the drain. I haven't used the oil

in a bottle, just the aerosol. The oil washes off very easily with the cleaner.

I put a little more than a cap full of the granules in a ~1/2 gallon of hot water.

I don't know if it matters, but I have one OEM filter and one Twin Air. Can't

tell any difference in filtration or when cleaning.

Are you thinking of scoliosis? (physical deformity of spine growing side to side out of alignment...Kyphosis is actually abnormal angulation of the spine to cause a hunchback...

Multiple sclerosis is where a person's own immune system attacks the CNS nerves and causes demyelination of nerves (like stripping the insulation from electrical wires) it slows conduction as well can get abnormal conduction that wasn't meant for those nerves. (like a group of wires with no insulation touching...the current will get dispersed)

I know giving you some facts for the day ...I'll get backto BRP's now.

I've HEARD of XR650R's with 15 -18K miles and still going...never heard what life span they have...from what I understand...its the valves that will need replacing long before the rest wears out...they tend to mushroom into the head (something SS valves should fix/slow down). And guys seeing that the cross-hatching of the cylinder walls were still present at rebuild.

Anyone have more than 15-18K miles on their XR650R?
