Anyone got a set of the standard conventional forks off the BRP they want to sell?

That's some crazy riding right there!

Do you guys have advice for good wind-deflecting tree busters? I'm mostly looking for something that will deflect wind first and foremost followed by price. I have the Renthal fat bars, stock everything else. Tusk? Acerbis? Someone else?

My buddy Brian at atomicmoto.com has some Acerbis handguards in stock that have a really big plastic guard section on them. Not too expensive either. Otherwise I would say go with Cycra or Enduro Engineering and get some Elephant Ears for the colder days...

Source for speedo

Can someone give me a source for the round chrome speedo that I see on so many BRPs? I have a TrailTech Vapor on my pig now, but want a standalone speedo.

I am also looking to purchase a rack so that I can carry more without strapping directly to the fender. Sources and opinions would be valuable.

Thanks in advance.

It's the Baja Designs Analog Speedo. Link Here: CLICK HERE

I've read where people have had failures with this speedo but I had the same unit on my BRP and it worked great.

Do you know if it comes with the cable that is driven off the front hub, or does it use the stock cable? If it uses the stock cable then that is the next thing that I will need to find.

The best for pure function is the old skool Maier. They tuck your hands fully and completely cover the levers.

Stock cable connects to it fine.

Question. I'm taking everything apart to grease and loc tite it. All the bearings are in ok shape. My swingarm came off without taking out the innner and outer lock nut things..do you think it wasn't tightened properly? I'm not sure if the swingarm has ever been taken off before. Now Its back to work, gotta another bike to chop in half tonight

Needed to loosen the lock nut (NUT, LOCK P/N# 90301-MBN-670) and the adjuster (BOLT, ADJUSTING PIVOT P/N# 52109-MBN-670) for mine to come out easily to avoid damaging the seals at each end of the swing arm pivot.
If it came out 'easily' I'd suspect the seals may have been extremely worn or the swing arm may have not been adjusted correctly and had excessive side play - worth checking on reassembly.
Enjoy


p.s. Good site for info especially the parts fische at - http://www.xr650r.us/fiche/
