just for size reference is that a 2 gallon or 1.75 gallon sized tool case?

Tony,
Have you tried the E-12's on there with the side Rotopax? And what wheel weights are those? Thanks!

Eric

I swapped one of the LRPs to 12/42 gearing yesterday. The 12t does not seem to cause any swingarm rubbing. I was going to go 13/45 or 13/48 on this bike, but that requires replacing the chain. This uses the stock length chain, which is may or may not wear out quickly. If it does - then I'll go with the bigger sprockets on the next chain.

I really like this gearing. 55-60mph is comfy and quiet, and 65mph is tolerable for short distances. It'll still do 70-75mph when wound out, if you need to overtake.

Off-road, it's almost as low as I'd need. For a bike that rarely sees 50mph+, I'd still go 13/48, but this first gear let me chug out of pretty much anything. I also get to spend more time in 2nd and 3rd, and the tighter effective spacing between the gears means that shifting up or down is less likely to result in screaming revs or lugging. Combined with a new Kenda Trakmaster on the rear, the LRP feels much more like a dirtbike.

I believe it's the 2 gallon size. I didn't know they made a smaller toolbox.

I have the E-12's and I think they were made for bikes without racks. I'm going to be using the Monarch Pass bags on this bike. The wheel weights are the crimp on kind.

Just learned we'll be doing 4 days on the BRP in a couple of weeks. Anyone know of a good rear rack for my son's CRF250L that is IN STOCK? Short notice, so can't wait for one to be made.
Big as possible to handle a duffle bag. Thanks for any info.

And this Little Red Piggy...

went wee, wee, wee all the way to the barn.

I got a Seat Concepts seat before I picked it up from the dealer. First, a Manrack...

with a rotopax...

Rox Risers...

The cables barely made it, but I was able to drop the tree down the forks by an inch. Added a Flatland Racing radiator guard.

Then I put on a decent skid plate, added a Kouba link, Wolfman tank bag, and Zeta handguards.
Finally, got it to look like this.

Nice - Where did you get the white plastic for it?

Hey Tony, what size Kenda 761 did you put on front? They look good and priced right.

bikerzbits. They're in Thailand. Took me a while to find them, but it makes sense since the bikes are built there. If you place an order, be patient. Tracking may end in Bangkok, then stuff just appears at your door, or you may be able to track it to San Francisco and a week later it just shows up. I found the same to be true with Europe. Prices are pretty good.

Speaking of plastic parts, has anyone had their fairing melt behind the radiator fan? I was riding it pretty hard and the fan ran for quite a while but I never got any high temp warning. The fairing is now distorted.
