I had to sent them a stock 15T so they could match up a 16. I have heard both that a 16T will not fit and also that it's a tight fit. I will know by Monday which is true. If you are looking to do the same (with the 16T) Donna is the lady you want to talk to.
So, what's the final word on the 16T front sprocket?

I heard again that it will not fit, you have to remove the case protector. The same person said that sidewinder doesn't last any longer. So, who knows?

I am slacking on getting my sprockets. I am eventually going to get the 15 and 16 front, the 42 rear and a new chain. If the 16 is too much of a problem, I will have the 15 to throw on there and enjoy it with teh 15/42 (?) I think it is the 42.

edit=make that 43 rear.

The 16T Fits.

The sidewinder 16T "JUST" fits. I do not have the front sprocket cover on right now. It's plastic anyway so I left it off. I think with a bit of sanding or just letting it wear in it would fit. I am getting the new front cover from XR's only, it's alum. www.xrsonly.com

http://www.xrsonly.com/content/index...mart&Itemid=77

I don't expect it to fit without a bit of Dremel tool work.

2002 XR650L with 16/45
60 mph = 3800 rpm (appox. +/- 50 rpm)
70 mph = 4500 rpm (appox. +/- 50 rpm)
Oil Temp at a solid 250 deg (Mobil 1 Syn V-Twin 20W-50)

I find myself riding in 4th gear a lot more now!!! it's awsome!!!

Can I ask a simple question...? WHY would anyone want a 16/45 setup...? What is the point of having a bike that you ride around in 4th gear...

I set my bike up as an Adventure tourer say 70% road 30% light trail (jeep roads). I have done a lot of highway miles and with my old setup 15/45 my rpm's were a bit buzzzzzzzie. I think it was something like

60 mph = 4160 rpm
i was also getting about 47 mpg

at around 70+ mph my temp would start to climb and the bike would get Hot. (Stock Carb).

it works good for me. What i meant by riding in 4th was from 50 mph to 60 I can run in 4th and stay under 4000 rpm.

Gotcha... You think about your bikes gearing like I think about my truck... LOL I bet you would just love my XR600R and my XR650L both running 14/48... LOL The only time my bikes see the highway is when I am crossing one... or the view they get out the window of my trailer...

I'm always looking for 6th gear when I hit an open stretch of desert... LOL

This is my plan also. Savin gas at the same time.

Its a good starting point I agree but at 399$ basically for materials I will just design my own. I also wonder how many rpm that tiny wheel would spin at 70mph?

if anybody's interested.......

in improving the stopping power of their XR-L......I have found the holy grail and it is good.....

brief background; I'd noticed on a trip recently that my new to me XR650L was none to quick to stop quickly with luggage and full fuel (IMS 4.0) load and that was with EBC HH pads and steel braided lines/ DOT 4 Syth. brake fluid.......

so I began to look around for a Supermoto style 320mm front brake rotor upgrade for the stock 21" frt whl.......

well, what I found out is that nobody makes one, due to the uniqueness of the XR-L frt hub.....but plenty of people made one for the XR650R.....

I measured the axle length and diameter and checked that the part numbers for the frt caliper were in fact the same for the XR-L and XR-R, so I scored a used frt wheel for an R, bought a EBC 320mm rotor from www.motostrano.com botled up the rotor, bolted up the wheel and VOILA......

I have a 320mm rotor on my L......stoppies, no problem!!!!

320mm Front Rotor

I think this company also makes one for the L

http://www.map-engineering.com/brakes.htm

Rotor - 320 mm Full-Floating 420 Stainless Steel.
Caliper Adapter - CNC Machined & Anodized Aluminum
Honda XR650L (1993-2003) $365

I like the look of yours better tho.

Does your speedo drive still function? or did you lose it switching over to the R hub?

SS brake lines?

SS brake lines? Where can I get both front and rear? anyone have part #'s

How about "stock size" parts numbers.
