There's a little bit more vibration than stock, but completely safe on the road and more importantly safe from drops! Infinite adjustability, and you can swap out other stuff on the RAM mount if you don't need 2 mirrors. Worked great for me.

Doubletake is also in the vendors section here on ADV. I've got them on my XRL as well, and find that they do vibrate more than the stock ones, but still useful. Love the adjustability, and build quality. I scuffed up the RAM mount ball a little to help keep the arm from slipping, and have been happy ever since.

All opinions in this post are not total maintenance suggestions, and relate only to the specific item in question. There are many other aspects related to your motorcycle that should be taken into consideration before making any changes that might interact with any other part of your motorcycle.

sold by this guy. he also happens to be riding the Dakar this year, so if you got some extra $,and want the mirrors, now's a good time to support his cause.

Good guy, and great rider. Follow his Dakar thread, you won't be disappointed.

he also has some Dual Sport Riding Videos. If I was going to get some Dual Sport Riding Videos, I'd get them from him

I am waaaaay to slow with fab work to make stuff for other people. The challenge with making a wrap around cover is that it has to be shaped to fit... it cant be a flat patch. I have a couple of hours into the one on my bike. Hopefully someone (jungleplant) with the right tools can pump some out.

Strange.... If it had not been for XR's only swapping (and tossing....) my HRC cam with a POS HotCam unit, and without catastrophic failure, I would have been content with my "burn" bike and most likely not sought a new build.

Thanks HotCams for crappy products!!!! I may not have hooked up with CW!!!!

No post since 7am

I have heard the XRL needs a special chain lube or it will explode.
What kind of chain lube should I use?
