I've got a few ideas concerning the right side brace for the XR650L, Mike. I'll post a few photos, and my ideas, a little later this evening.

I've already got my Spud Struts, Mike. However, I would still like to be placed on the list of one of the right side braces you will develop for the XR650L. I think you can improve my design, and the resulting, right side brace will work for all XR650L mufflers.

I frequently pack my J.C. Whitney Travel Trunk with a hefty load of groceries. I also like to take short trips with my XR650L, and I prefer to take along my J.C. Whitney Travel Trunk as my luggage. Therefore, I decided I should reinforce the subframe of my XR650L. Since I removed the battery box when I performed my Shorai battery relocation, I decided to bolt a -inch thick, steel bar between the two supports that previously held the frame for the battery box.



For the subframe support on the muffler side, my friend welded a short piece of steel bar at an angle to a longer piece of steel bar. I removed the rear fender brace, and mounted the rear of this bar with the bolt that previously held the fender brace. The bottom of the air box has a thick tab which is bolted to a frame gusset which supports both the air box, and the front of the muffler. I drilled a hole through this lower, air box support, and bolted the front of this brace to the frame gusset.



Here is a photograph from the rear of my bike, showing the clearance between the subframe struts and the rear tire.



Here is a photograph of the right side of my bike, after the installation of the subframe struts. The front mounting bolt for the right side strut is located within the green circle in this photo.



I have a 2-inch space between the outside of the left strut, and my XR600R side plastic. Therefore, I plan to mount a tool tube/box to this strut, and remove the factory tool bag. With the stock tool bag removed, I can install a new, ManRacks RotoPax rack which mounts closer to the saddle, reducing the leverage the loaded rack exerts on the subframe.

if you have read that post by michael brat, his impression is that the right side is the weakest
because they made the left side stronger for that battery holder , what do ya think spud would a strut on the right side be enough, PS keep those desktop background images comin spud we luv them

I hope BigMan doesn't mind; I borrowed one of his photographs to perform the Photoshop work shown below. The first photograph shows the location of both my Spud Struts on the frame of the XR650L.



I believe my triangulated, 1/4-inch thick, steel bars are stronger than gussets welded to the frame. I also believe the bolted struts prevent possible damage to the frame which might be caused by welding. The following, doctored photograph shows only the location of my right Spud Strut.



The right Spud Strut is bolted to a gusset on the frame which supports the front of the muffler. However, the bolt securing the front of my right Spud Strut currently passes through a thick, plastic tab located at the bottom of the airbox. This tab isn't necessary, since the airbox is supported by two bolts on top which secure it to the bike's frame.

I would prefer to cut away this plastic tab, so one could weld a metal tab extending to the right from the front of my Spud Strut. The mounting bolt could then be attached to this metal tab, lessening the shear forces on the bolt. Also, with this arrangement, the airbox would not be compromised by the potential failure of the front mounting bolt. In addition to the two, top bolts, the air box would also be supported by resting upon the metal tab extending from the right of the strut. What do you think, Mike?

It does appear most of the frame fractures occur on the right side of the frame, Mike. However, I think the subframe will be supported better by bolting struts onto both sides of the frame. I encourage you to mount a left strut to the two battery box mounts, as I have done. If necessary, you can employ a spacer or two to prevent incursion with the battery box. I believe the left strut is not only shorter, and lighter in weight, but it is also stronger than the TT strut when bolted to the two supports supplied for the battery box.

Thank you, BigMan. I believe my modified Spud Strut might solve the problem with the weak, XR650L subframe. I'm also pretty sure my modified Spud Strut will work with all aftermarket mufflers, in addition to the stock muffler. Because of his generosity to me, and others, I freely offer this design for Mike's consideration.

If you have any photos clearly showing the frame gusset supporting the front of the muffler, please do post them, BigMan.

My Spud Struts have performed very well for me this year. I believe adding a tab to the front of my right Spud Strut will strengthen the design even more, and obviate the potential difficulties involved with welding gussets to the bike's frame. I also believe the shorter, straighter design of my Spud Struts is stronger than the longer, bent design of the TT frame braces.

If Mike wants to build a prototype, right Spud Strut, I will be happy to cut away the air box tab on my XR650L, and experiment with the new design.
