They are the same forks.

Has anyone tried to put a Motion Pro clutch cable on their XRL? I ordered one and it is too long. Motion Pro said that it was the same cable that they have been selling for years... I measured it against the one that was on the bike and it is longer. I even had the MP guy on the phone. He made it sound like I was the stupid one???? Anyone ever have this problem?

yeah

I recently had a problem with Motion Pro sending me the wrong clutch cable.
I must say however that they were very helpful and fixed the problem asap. But the cable they sent me was too short, and the clutch was basically engaged as the longest setting.
Also the rubber boot looked totally different than stock, and was not the accordian type. That clued me in that something was off. I took some measurements and called them, and in a few days had a correct cable.

I know several people there...Brandon, Ed, Chris Carter....few people in the industry care about motorcycles, motorcyclists, riding access, and in general are as conscientious as they are. There are some knuckleheads in the business but they are one of the few that really care.

BTW, "Ed" there is a hardcore XR650L rider.

Try them again, go up the ladder if you are not getting what you want.

That's good to know. I have (and intend to buy more) tons of MP stuff. They sell some very nice stuff.

Does anyone know if a Trico EP37 is a direct plug-in for my stock flasher, and if it will handle the problem I'm having with the new LED blinkers I installed? When I click the blinker, all four go on, solid. Please, nobody suggest the resistors, I went through that last night, and I wasted a dollar on those, and eight more bucks on a soldering iron (though I think I'll still use this for connecting wires). I just want to plug and play!

Not sure about the flasher, but did you remove the turn signal indicator bulb in the dash yet? You won't be able to have any incandescents on that circuit if you want it to work.

I've heard about this too, what is the best way to do this, and can I replace it with something so that the indicator light still works, or do you just have to forget about it? Not that I really need that light, just don't like it when shit don't work!

I never found a good way to replace it on my DR and haven't changed to LEDs on my XRL, but I was told you can run an LED with a resistor and it will work. I don't know what size it would take.

I just left it off, but I agree, its nice to have stuff working right. After all the pain and suffering of figuring it out, let me know!!!

Usually, the indicator lights are just pushed in the panel with rubber seals so you just pull them out through the bottom and remove the lamp. I'm not near my bike to check right now.

Well, I did all that, and thanks, you were right, very easy to just remove that light, popped the bulb out and just plugged it back in without it. Now, I've put the new flasher on, and the damn thing still doesn't work right. Now, the correct side lights up, as opposed to before where they all lit up; however, now only three of the many LEDs in each light illuminate, and they still don't blink! Any ideas?

You need a resistor. The indicator relay uses resistance in the circuit to allow it to turn on and off - i.e. as soon as the lights come on, the resistance is such that the relay turns itself off and this in turn turns it back on - result: Blinking lights.

LEDs have a different resistance to normal bulbs (i.e. lower) so it needs a resistor in series (I think) to restore the correct circuit resistance to allow the blinker to work correctly.

If you search on the net, there is tons of info out there about it.

BTW, I have not heard of the not being able to have normal bulbs and LED's in the same circuit - they are just electrical devices in a circtuit so I don't know why they can't be in the same circuit.
