Thanks Jeremy! There will be two XRL's and one XRR. We have rented a satellite phone for just in case.

supermoto stuff

Hello XRL owners.
I recently bought a very nicely set up 2006 XR650L. I bought it to do more trail riding as my 1150 GSA is just too heavy for that kind of riding and I realized its the kind or riding I would like to do more of.

The bike I bought came with all the stuff to convert it to a Supermoto type bike but I have no desire to do this conversion.
I will list all the parts I can think of and would like to know what they are worth if sold as a parcel.

CR USD forks
Two sets of fork clamps with stems and bearings, one looks like its from a CR and the other is a billet aluminum aftermarket.
handlebar mounts for billet aluminum triple tree
Excel 17" front and back aluminum rims
Avon Distanza tires brand new never mounted
Stainless Spokes to fit Excel rims to stock hubs
Brake disc to fit on USD forks

so what's all that stuff worth?

Thanks for your input...... I will list it all for sale in the appropriate Flea Market area once I have a better understanding of its value.

Pete

I need to update, and close my Spud Roller thread in the Vendor's Forum. As I reported, my Spud Rollers wear very well, but I have discovered the impact from the drive chain will cause the mounting bolts to fracture the bottom of the chain guide. Michael Bratcher reported this problem to me during his ride, and I have now noticed this same phenomenon on my own chain guide.

The chain roller that replaces the "chain slipper" works great, and I can still recommend this modification. However, I now believe chain rollers will not last indefinitely in the XR650L chain guide, unless the chain guide itself is strengthened, and I don't think this extra work is worth the trouble. If Mike Bratcher reads this post, I hope he feels free to offer his comments regarding this matter.

Spud
After using spud rollers for a while and tiring of the noise, I replace one of them with a shock absorber bushing I had in the shop. I lined the inside with a metal sleeve I "sourced" from Ace Hardware. Since I wasn't entirely confident in the bushing, I left one spudroller in there. Verdict so far is that the shock bushing is wearing pretty fast, but they are so cheap, I may continue to use them.

Just be careful riding on base. The local talk is they are death on motorcycles and have radar speed traps set up along the roadways you can't see until it's too late.

Indeed, the Spud Rollers are noisy. The Spud Rollers wear very well, but the chain guide will crack from the impact of the drive chain on the mounting bolts unless it is reinforced.

Discount OE Parts

For a long time I used Service Honda to source my parts. Even with their weird program to see the parts fich I was a customer for years.

Then I found Cheapcycleparts when looking for an ignition switch for my KTM. Cheapcycleparts was cheaper and shipping charges were the same as was the delivery time as Service Honda. I did come to find that if you placed an online order the parts would show up faster than if you called in your order to a live human.

This brings me to CycleCentralPowerSports. I found their pricing even cheaper than Cheapcycleparts but the shipping was a couple of dollars more. Over all the order was still cheaper than Cheapcycleparts. I recently placed an order for a NX650 second gear and a couple of gaskets on November 10th. The order arrived last Friday. Fifteen days from online order to my door.

Conclusion. If time is important then go with Cheapcycleparts. If not then CycleCentralPowerSports is the best deal money wise.

Just my .02

I have a question about the rollers...

are they free to roll out back on the slider? if so thats why they make noise...no matter what you use if they are free to move they will rattle and like spud said eventually will make brittle the bolts and holes cause of the vibration...

I hope he doesnt mind but I have a modified version at least for the front roller on the frame...

Its a roller, but I used a cart/kart plastic/rubber wheel that I bought for pennies at the hardware store then mounted it as the frame roller near the swingarm...under the chain.

Its circular BUT NOT FREE TO MOVE..whenever one side gets used up and flattened I just turn the roller to where it has fresh meat and keep on riding...

Its so cheap I dont worry about how fast it wears as its pennies compared to 20 or so bucks for the honda part...plus it looks stock...

Ill find a pic to show you guys what Im talking about...

P.S. I find that not only is honda the best manufacturer for certain oem parts, for stuff like cables, the swingarm slider, the rear slider...gaskets etc...they wear like steel and are impressive oem quality.

cheers!
