Looks good to me, but how much weight did you add? Thanks for taking the time to share the pics and ideas.

the metal added to the subframe is about equal to the weight difference between the factory exhaust and the ids2. so that's a wash. the only real weight gain is the rack.

now if it would warm up i could ride it once and post pics of me fixing the cracked frame.

Hi Ya'll,
Santa brought me a new 06 XR650L for xmas this last year. It's still bone stock, but am gona do something to it sooner or later. I'd been riding an XL600 for the last 7 years, but kicking it made it no fun to ride anymore. (I'm over 50 & too many years of kickin bikes, has made the knees unhappy). I love that 'lectic starter button!!!!!
I'm posting to find out about the rack thats on some of the pix in this thread. They seem to be on XR's. Do the aluminum/stainless looking ones fit on the XRL also? I took it riding in Death Valley last weekend, and a rack would've been nice to carry the extra gas can. Strapping it to the seat or tool bag didn't work too well...
Thanks for any help.

The bike may look a little weird...

I wanted more modern 2 tone seat so I just bought an OEM XR650L seat. Fits right on. (with ceet hard seat foam)

I also run a setrab oil cooler on the front triple. Keeps the 628 nice and icey cold.

Bike runs like a champ, all day just chewing up the miles.

Don't know what sort of riding you're into but if you travel far from home you might want to look into one of these: http://www.cycleventure.com/fitments...?fitment_id=34 . You've always got a decent sized rack above the tail light and when you take off the bag you've got a sissybar-like thing to which you could strap gas tanks or whatever you want.

I'd like to see that too.I noticed it looks like its mounted on the front fender.
I looked quickly online for a setrab and all I found so far was one for $110. The XR400 one can be bought for $85 and would be a cleaner install but the setrab would be larger.

Thats a nice looking setup. Are you using this? If so any chance of getting some pictures of how the L brackets mount?

Medicine Creek, looks like you've just been through a similar process as me. I've recently finished makin' a top rack and saddlebag racks myself.

Enzorover, we broke our Ventura racks. They don't cut the mustard for off-road riding. Mind you, they're not designed for what we we carrying ...



My '98 XRL below, with mod's for upcoming Aussie trip. There's three of us on XRL's, more info here: www.yonder.orcon.net.nz/aussie2006.htm
