Thanks for the advice, I'll definitely look into that. I'm also looking at Fisher seats. I love the SDG seat, got me and my long inseam up higher and makes it easier to kick the bike while seated, but still painful enough after a while. I appreciate the help, since other than the (puny) electrical system, and the seat, I love my XR.

Good to see you're getting out & around the Hood Dave .

Saw this in the local rag tonight:



I'll have to go up there & check it out.

Especially since someone got a new bike, 3Cows on the '05/950:



Sweet!

I'm going to change mine tomorrow. Should I expect, a simple easy process or is it going to take all day cause I have to take half the bike apart just to do it?

You don't have to take the bike apart just to change the oil...
