I'm not one to take many risks with anything above 12-14" flowing water, but the carb T-mod is a good time investment to prevent you from stalling.

Otherwise you should be ok. You should check the air box after crossing to confirm water didn't penetrate the filter.

dont know how deep it will be depends on how much rain we get. I dont think it will be moving water more just flooded areas, damn beavers... :)

Looks like your buddy found the deep end

Just goes to show, a fully farkled BMW can't swim. When he first fell I thought the bike would be ok but the second fall was a full submergance. How long did it take to get it running again?

Does anyone recognize this stabilizer adapter on my 2000 BRP? I've done a bunch of searching but can't find any reference to this version.

Looks like a W.E.R. (works enduro rider) mount.

KTM Tank on an XRR?

Crazy question but has anyone ever thought about or tried to mount a KTM fuel tank on an XRR? I have a sumo setup for my pig and for the road the stock tank and shrouds are really dated. Looking at some of the KTM frames they have a single backbone like the Hondas and I'm just wondering out loud if this might be feasible (with some modifications of course.) Anyone own both an EXC or similar and an XRR that could eyeball it? Some of the smaller Acerbis tanks with even the built in shrouds look pretty good by comparison.

I know it's absolutely NOT a functional mod and I'm fine with my dirt setup with my Clarke tank but a little sleeker street setup might stop me from adding a 5th bike to the garage

Fire away...Scott

I've got a 2004 XRR stock tank/shrouds that are barely used if you're looking for something prettier. Been thinking about selling them for a while. Let me know if that interests you.

It's going to look older no matter what. Enjoy the look. It's unique on these bikes and I tend to like it.

I do not like the front fender though, but installing a CRF450 one fixed that.
