You can also plug cigarette style outlets into them for charging/running devices like gps, phones etc. The Schumacher style tenders come with a nice thick gauge wire too
Already got the pig tail on it. I just haven't bothered using it because it never sits for more than a week..guess I should rethink that. Its living situation has changed and is now outdoors

With a Certificate of origin(COO), I assume there is no signing off by the PO but you have to turn that paper in as well. AFAIK they all say "off road only".
I've heard of a couple folks getting by the regs but you have to turn in your old title to the DMV rep. Occasionally a rep will not catch the "off road only" on a COO but not often.
There is a local inmate who just bought a used 2 stroke figuring on titling it. I'll ask him if he has done it yet and get back to you.
In California you get one special build per lifetime. I asked the lady at DMV how all these custom bikes get plates. So...you have your mom use hers, auntie use hers, etc.

I had found the CA DMV in the North Bay Area to be very helpful. Titled a few abandoned salvages for me with no major trouble, they actually gave me all the correct steps to take the first time. NY expects you to guess your way through everything and if you ask they just like to say "Cant be done!" even if it can. My preference being for Navato DMV.

That would be Novato DMV.

Mike Wattner has one on his bike. Well, of course he does, he's got the most tricked-out L the world has ever seen. I think he mentioned it in his build thread. Speaking of which, I got the new "Dirt Bike" in the mail the other day and they are now covering adventure riding. I still say that Mike's bike and CW's fabricating/wizard machining talents need to be published! Also, it would be a good plug for the L.

I believe Rad Engineering manufactures the only XR650L hub with a cush drive.

http://www.radmfg.com/Cush-Series-RE...radh-eq-1r.htm



The following thread contains a few photographs of the Rad cush hub installed on an XR650L.

Here's a photograph of a Rad cush hub from another thread.

The Rad Cush hub is very nice, but it's also expensive. A less expensive way to preserve your bike's countershaft splines is substituting a wider, XR650R C/S sprocket for your XR650L sprocket. You might enjoy reading the following thread.

Riding on pavement without a rear cush hub can certainly punish the countershaft splines. Here's a photograph I found of a KTM XC4 countershaft with 12,000 miles of wear.

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=752081



Here's a photograph of the countershaft on my XR650L after 37,000 miles of riding. At the time of this photograph I had been employing a wider, XR650R C/S sprocket for 27,000 miles.
