I have had 3 XR650R's (2 currently) and made three discoveries recently;
1. The constant "loosening" of the two footpeg bolts is due to the stock (soft) bolts stretching. See the pic below...this is off a stock XR with less than 500 miles.
2. Bolt failures (mine) have not been due to the threads pulling out. In fact I've been able to EZ out the studs without any damge to the stock frame threads.
3. The stock bolts are either not graded or standard grade (soft, low tensil strength) AND do not fully engage the full length of the frame threads.

The highest grade of metric bolt is a 12.9. I have successfully replaced my stock bolts with these much stronger bolts. Unfortunately, the 12.9's are almost impossible to find in the correct size, and when I finally did, had to buy them in bulk. So as a result, I have fixed both my BRP's and have a bunch of extra bolts...

So here is the deal;
For $15 I'll send you a 50mm and a 55mm 12.9 socket heads (engage more threads than stock, too), a couple of washers for the front bolt AND an 80mm in case you have trashed your threads or need to drill thru the frame. 3 Bolts and 2 Washers for $15 shipped. No, I wont sell individual bolts, but if you need more than three PM me and I'll shoot you a price. When they are gone, they are gone....these are just extras I'm trying to clear off the shelf.

PM me if you want some. PayPal ONLY. Canada add $10...sorry but it is the only shipping service I can do via PayP
Thanks just got them and installed them--fyi my original front bolt was deformed when you roll it on a flat surface so it was on its way to failure--thanks for doing the research and shipping

Happy New Year!

Wicked XR600R Long range tank

Hi Guys,
Need help.

Looking for a Acerbis 22Ltank for my '99 XR 600R.
I leave in Mozambique (africa) so i guess an on-line shop would be more helpful.

I've tried the Acerbis site (www.acerbis.com) but they dont have an on-;ine shop or a link to it.

Assistance please...
MJ

e-bay impersonator...

Just FYI, some scumbag (who live in Salt Lake) has copied this exact post and pics and put it up on e-bay selling footpeg bolts.

The e-bay guy is NOT me...probably not even a rider!
