Did you incorporate an anti-crush sleeve in the drilled opening?

I assume, you are talking about the hole drilled for the exhaust hangar. And the answer is no. How would you put an anti-crush sleeve on an existing piece of tubing that's welded closed on both ends?? I'm interested. But in this case, I don't know if it's needed. Seems to be pretty strong on it's own.

Ahh...your thinking it looks like this.....No.





Both the bolt and anti-crush sleeve go clear through the bike rack tubing wall....and any amount of tighting the muffler to the rack will be stopped by the sleeve.



I also assumed the rack tubing wall thickness could be thin for weight savings and add in the abuse dirt bikes hand out, an anti-crush sleeve seemed appropriate.

EDIT:

Gotcha! I like it! Thanks for the tip. I'm off to find some small diamater steel tubing, maby some brake line at the parts store.

PS. Yes, I was thinking of the first example you have above in PVC.

Progress progress. I installed the new right footpeg today. I had to drill out the front hole using the 7/16th drill bit. Never like drilling into an aluminum frame, but it was an easy job. 10 minutes later, I had a stronger footpeg. Job done!

Next on the docket was to install the new compression relief, clutch and push/pull throttle cables. These cables were ordered from Motion Pro with an extra 3 inches of length for my aftermarket triple tree and bar risers.

Job done!

It might be considered sacrilege by some, but I've had a Cycra front fender thrown away by the factory Yamaha super moto team at Road America about 5 years ago. Absolutely no damage to it, other than some stressed plastic markets on the edge.

What do you think, can an XRR have a blue beak? I can already see the confusion on peoples faces....

Cycra hand-guards installed! Unfortunately, the Yamaha front fender was not a good fit, I'd have to cut it up pretty good. I suppose I'll keep the stocker on for the time being.



I forgot to mention I replaced all the fluids yesterday and fired the bike up. I put the Acerbis tank on and ran the bike in the yard a bit. Fired up on the 3rd kick! Not bad for completely replacing the wiring!

More progress today. I got the Baja Designs LaPaz 8inch light installed! This sucker rocks! I'm still figuring out what I want to do for the front fender....





I also had to spend some time sanding down the throttle tube, there were some sharp bits left over after I removed the end cap so I could install the Cycra handguards. The sharp bits were causing friction in my throttle, prohibiting the carb springs from returning back to idle once you let off the throttle. Rule #1 at any tech inspection. Anyways, a little finesse and sand paper and she's smooooooth....

Looking good!! I put a CRF fender on my XRL and I really like it. I also have a KTM fender for my sumo setup, both fenders bolted up with no real big issues...

Cheers,

Thanks again for the input.

I spent my Saturday morning feeding the hungry wood stove and installing my Baja Designs rear tail light while it snowed outside! I spliced up some ends to feed into my brake light switches both on my front and rear brake levers. Then I wired the running light up to the 12 volt source as well. All fused of course!






And with the completion of the rear taillight assembly, my wiring is done! I'm just waiting on some sprocket bolts, then I can install my new chain and sprockets, then finally sneak in a ride before winter decides to really hit. I'll still be installing a Trail Tech speedo which I've ran 12VDC to the front of the bike already, so that will be a quick install. I also have a skid plate ready to bolt on, but I'll wait till I'm done wrenching on the BRP.

Do you have the part #'s for the longer motion pro compression release and clutch cables? I re-routed mine, but it would be nice to have longer cables.
