Thanks!
I guess I didn't think this posting out to well...

I have the 7/8" bars now but want to move to 1 1/8". What would I need from HDB or someone else to do this?

Anyone have a 11kg shock spring they'd like to get rid of?
If so, shoot me a PM. I"m in the market for one.

Lights out!

I was out riding the other day and all of a sudden, the lights went out. The bike still runs like a dream but with no lights or turn signals. Where should i start troubleshooting?

Had a go (almost) at it today but as you can see, something else required all my attention :)

Do you want to run a steering stabilizer?


A direct answer to your above question is: from HDB, lower handle bar clamps and their top clamp (below is the top part of this set up)...If you run a S/S then it's different.

There are also measurements of max and min length of the spring. They do sag over time and have a "wear" limit.

I didn't get around to looking at my eibach spring installation page. I'll see if i can do that tonight.
check these out, not such a wiz with inserting pics yet but this should get the job done.

Nice looking ride.

So yea, it's confirmed that they don't suggest or recommend shortening the spring much more then .54in. Longest (preload is required) is 244mm and if you spring measures less than 240 free length it should be replaced.

Good work. That's why I called caution on the one posted before when it's clamped down the threads to the degree it was. I know from installing mine that I was no where near the end of the threads.

The other alternative is simply to add spacers. Tusk makes a cheap solution ($24), or you can get something like ROX which are around $90. I have the Rox 1 and 1.5 and like them. Being 6'4" I wouldn't mind them a little higher, so I bought some CR Highbends yet to install. Just make sure to get the standard (7/8) to 1 1/8" risers.

Sweet setup, Jim! Currently I'm not using a steering stabilizer (though apparently everyone else does - I'm not too bright). So one last question: For the HDB lower clamps do I need the 10mm or 12mm bolt?

I guess by now you are wondering why don't I just go and look? I broke my leg Jan 29th, bought my XRR without being able to test ride it and it is sitting in a van that I can't get into or unload for a while. I'm just trying to get some parts lined up for when I can start my build. I'm also in process of procuring a TM40, stator rebuild, and 7" race light.

I do appreciate your help.

I don't know bolt size. I'd think they would reuse the stock one? I have BRP triple clamps and lower risers...with HDB as the cherry on top.

You have a broken leg...and you bought a XRR...I like your style.

i had the 2" ROX risers, they're pretty nice. I managed to bend them in a wee spill. That said they probably kept my bars from getting mangled since they can rotate they absorb that sort of thing to a degree.

Yeah, I'm the guy that screwed mine all the way down, which was about an inch. I am going to readjust and screw them back up half an inch and then I will be within spec allowed adjustments.


On another note.....I headed down to the DMV yesterday. I was armed with proof of insurance, signed over title (from the purchase) and the doc from the Department of Public Safety, stating that the bike was street legal. It was a piece of cake. $76 later.....I had a plate.

I was a good boy, purchasing mirrors so that I am 'more legal'. I don't suppose I will ever be completely....100% legal as I don't have a horn. And....don't plan to get one.

Here are the mirrors. I love them....they are MSR's. The one's that can twist around and tuck away while riding dirt. Awesome!!!!






I also got the Rox Risers installed....and splurged on a ProTaper Bar.





Finally, I received the Tanker Brace today. I promptly installed it. It was a piece of cake....probably 10 minutes. Now, the bottom of the tank is incredibly solid.





My biggest problem will be.......Keeping my son off the bike.....where I can ride it.

No I forgot to soak the plates. I hope that isn't the problem, as I have already put about 200 miles or so on it since then. Had some issues with school and needed to clear my head a bit so rode it anyway.

I'm 99% sure its not the chain/sprockets. I have a brand new regina o-ring and trailtricks sprockets on it. They probably have 300 miles max. I have a new chain guide on order and it may be my old crappy chain guide, but I doubt it.

I'm baffled, in about a month I will have time to tear the right side down far enough to really check things out. It started doing that a year ago but only once a month-ish. I had a sprocket bolt on my supermoto wheel come loose in mexican traffic, the bolt hung up on the swingarm and I dumped the clutch to get it moving so I wouldn't get run over. I'm hoping I didn't do major damage, but its something that is definetly getting worse. I'm betting on a bent shaft or a broken basket honestly.
