Unless you have made your engine stronger, not just carb, intake and exhaust but cam and piston type stuff the engine isn't strong enough for a 40 tooth sprocket, I tried it and it didn't work out. 43 is great though. But now I'm back to a 45 with NX650 5th I like that a lot better cause you don't rob the power from the first 4 gears to get a "cruising" gear.

FWIW, sidewinder sprockets made the three above mentioned rear sprockets for me. Great customer service and they are fast too!

Put a switch on the ground. That'll get it for sure. It's the green one going in.

I use to have an extra set of wheels. I bought mine on ebay. In total it was around $ 300 to $350 total. This might help you while your looking for rims. Xr 400 and xr 600 rear wheels will fit the xrl.

Just realized the tire was miss marked! Says dunlop 952 on one tag and 606 on the other! Went to cycle gear to buy another and to my shock it was $115 , never even paid attention!

Congratulations! Cycle gear screwed up, and you saved $28. I was sure you couldn't buy a D606 tire for $87 anywhere. I still prefer the D952 tire, size 110/90-18, which you can buy at Rocky Mountain ATV/MC for $69.99.

The difference being the 606 is street legal and the other one not. I think that's where the price difference is.

Indeed, you will be charged a hefty premium for DOT certification. However, the lighter, narrower, lower, less expensive, size 110/90-18, D952 rear tire performs just as well, or better on pavement than the D606 rear tire. Also, the tread of the D952 retains a rounder profile than the tread of the D606 as the tire wears down. This rounder profile helps the tire to grip better while cornering on pavement. In addition, the D952 has a more aggressive tread, which performs better in all off road riding. Both tires appear to be manufactured from a similar rubber compound.

Here's the tread pattern of the D952 rear tire.



Here's the tread pattern of the D606 rear tire.



In the great, free, western state of Idaho we don't need DOT certification for knobby tires. Therefore, I much prefer the D952 rear tire to the D606 rear tire.

Nice pic.

I've done enough riding around here to come to the conclusion that I don't care if its DOT approved or not, what price is the best now drives me. There is no one out here to enforce that crap anyways. When there are people enforcing it, they just want to make sure your plate is up to date. Otherwise if you just turn around when you see them, they don't pursue. Not a huge incentive to go 100% legit on the bike now is it? I hope one day to leave this pathetic state of over regulations and stuck up people.

SOLD.....D952 that is....

I have tried a few tires,,,,MCE, D606, GP-110...gonna try the D952 as per Spud. I like the 606 and I am sure I will like the 952 especially on price...How can one go wrong with that?

I have to ask the collective the question....why the DOT? Do you guys really have a problem inspecting tires at the shop or are you afraid of the law? In my many years of riding, no one ever paid attention to my tires including inspection stations....[New Jersey might have a problem]...what gives???

The only reason they pull you over is that you did something stu-bid. A non compliance tire is minor!?? Suckitup.

If your shop will not inspect your bike because of a tire,,,find a new shop!!!

eee

Or... just take the wheels off yourself and take them in to the shop to have the tires done.

Hey Spud, have you considered trying the Dunlop MX71 tire? Only 3 bucks more than the D952, and it's made for harder pack, so maybe get more life out of it...

Nobody ever responded about mufflers, whether the internals are different between the 600R muffler and the 650L muffler...
