Thank you, Kyo. I found a great flasher for $9.49 at NAPA. It has two terminals, and a service life of 400 hours.

Those relays you posted are excellent values! The highest current draw should be under 3 amps, so those heavy-duty relays are more than capable of handling the current.

It's in a box on the shelf with the extra helmets above the Harley.

But you'll have to get past these guys first.

Rocky Mountain ATV/MC has the MSR Tire Changing Stand on sale for $84.99. I own a stand almost identical to this, and it is excellent.

http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p/...changing+stand



After you use a tire changing stand, you will never again want to change tires on your hands and knees.

Motion Pro changed the design of the new "bead buddy." The Tusk "bead buddy" still has the original, superior design, and costs $4 less.

http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p/...Tire-Bead-Tool



Along with the above items, purchase a valve core remover and three tire spoons, and you will have everything you need to change you own tires.

The following videos demonstrate an easy way to change tires. I use these techniques, and they work exactly as demonstrated.

Tire

Might I inquire what some of you are running for a rear tire ? I tried to order a D606 140 from cycle gear and they replied it was no longer available . So, do I run the D606 130, or is there another 140 that I should look into? On another note note, just installed the Easton EXP freestyle bars, not sure yet how I like them, really like the height when on the bike, very tall when trying to get on the bike. They do not have much pull back, which makes standing up nice, but may be a little much while sitting. Anyway, let you know, as I get some more miles on it.

I grew up with Boxers, they are just big softies. All they want to do is be your friend. I keep telling my wife our next dog will be a boxer, but she wanted a Lab. Labs are just too emotionally needy for me.

OK, I'll fab up one of those ball caps with a cup holder and add some fuel line for a straw...used fuel line of course.

I wasn't aware the D-606 came in a 140. You're not thinking of a Dunlop 908RR are you? That's the only Dunlop DS tire I know of that comes in a 140. Just looked up the 908RR...Man, is it expensive, $200+!!!
Either way, you can run 140's on the XR. It requires removing the disc guard. No big deal.
I am currently running a 130 D-606. I've only run a couple 140 Metzeler Enduro III's and the 130 D-606's. Some here like the 120 size. I may try a 120 in the future myself.

A 130 is fine (actually more tire than an XRL needs.) I am running a 120 on the back now and it does great. I ran a 130 D606 before and it was an OK tire. Stay away from the D606 front tire though.
