The MSO (mfr's statement of origin) is not required in CO, a bill of sale works.


I'm taking this down to the Colorado State Patrol tomorrow for it's certified VIN verification, compliance inspection, and off to DMV for plates after I call my insurance agent.


I bought this from Michelangelo in early December. Replaced a pranged radiator, shagged chain and sprockets...had local suspension guru Neil Hores revalve and respring both ends.
Bought a PMB rack from an inmate, put on new ProTapers with Cycra CRM handguards....

Added a 250w Baja Designs rewind & one of their d/s kits.

An Eastern Beaver "3 Circuit Solution" (simple fuseblock) has it's 40a relay triggered by the 5w running light in the headlight shell. Turn the d/s kit on, that running light comes on and the fuseblock has power.
Right now that's just GPS, Vapor lighting, and a pair of Symtec grip heaters.
An Osram 80w-85 H4 bulb is in the mail...




Looking at going for my inspection in CAstle Rock is there anything that I need to know that caught you buy surprise.....

The big surprise was that they didn't need me to unload the bike from the hitch carrier and start it, or even turn on the d/s kit to show anything worked.

The trooper did a quick visual inspection and that, as they say....was that.

I did call ahead and make an appointment, got there about 20 minutes early and they were able to get me done in short order.

Did you go to Castle Rock or one by Parker. The guy in Castle Rock has been out for a while heart-attach might need to loook at going to another state patrol office.

Ok, that's good to know. I had read multiple reviews on either Chaparral's or Rocky Mountain's web site and it seemed there were mixed feelings. Some guys loved the Warp 9's and others felt the hubs were inferior and that the spokes would need no attention. Since most of my riding is street use, it sounds like the 9 may work well for me.

Castle Rock. That's the Douglas County place to go....though I think a sheriff would work too on the VIN verification, just not sure about the conversion compliance. Didn't see that part mentioned. Give 'em a call.

Fay Myers stocks them and so does Performance, and many other shops I reckon. Those two for sure.
In both thread pitches.

They're under $20.

I'm looking for advice from the XR650R owners of the big IMS 7 gallon tank (NOT THE ACERBIS).

I am finding it very frustrating to install the tank with the spider web of hoses that end up wrapping underneath the frame and carburetor. Especially when the tank has gas in it, how do you remove it without gas pouring out everywhere?

The tank came on a bike I bought and I like it for what it is, but having to remove it to do maintenance or carb tuning is an absolute nightmare.

I'm looking for solutions or tips from fellow owners out there.

Thanks

With the price of gas nowadays...

I also have the IMS 7.0+ gal tank. I just pulled it for the first time a couple of weeks ago.
A good search of ADV will provide a ton of arguments for and against the Quick-Disconnect route.

But, you're right, there doesn't seem to be any way to effectively drain all the tubes and prevent the leakage of fuel from SOMEWHERE when you pull this tank. (It hides in the cross tube, in the pump, everywhere)

I just settled for a nice little flammable puddle on the driveway. I am looking into the QDs. But, now I have to figure out how many sets of 2 I need.

Until I learn how to ride in the woods a bit better, I'm parking the Mega Tank in the garage, and using the more reasonable 4.3 gal I picked up in the flea market.

Finally got around to snapping a pic of my battery and it's location.

Previous owner mounted it this way. I had to buy a new battery, but kept the same location. Actually held in place with heavy duty velcro type materials. Never moves, pretty hard to pull off actually.



It's the white box with a blue top under the horn.

throttle assembly question - Edlebrock vs. Stock

The previous owner of my 650R installed the Edelbrock carb. After 6 years, I'm switching back to the stock carb that was included with the sale (it's broken - that's another story).

My question is this:

The current throttle housing on the handlebars is the Motion Pro style, not stock. Do I need to get a stock throttle assembly in order to run the stock carb? I remember reading something about needing to switch to a Motion Pro throttle when you go with the Edelbrock, but I don't know the reason why. Any input would be much appreciated.
Thanks.
