cycleracks.com = best rack imo

Only comes in red.... It is one of the best additions to my bike. Very robust construction. great capacity, and makes it much easier to pick the bike up if you drop it.

On the xr650l the cycleracks work perfect with Dirt Bagz panniers.

It's really similar to the stocker, I didn't have any issues with the wire routing. I've got an 06, but I don't think much changed in the two years between mine and yours. I switched my stock one for the Maier cause I wanted a black one I didn't have to keep painting.

Yep, all the holes in the side panel, I think the pics are on page 524. The airbox would get water in it just from riding in the rain. Not to mention it was a bitch to jet the FCR-MX just right and was really temperature sensitive once I did, now back to a stock airbox, jetting much easier, getting throttle wheelies in second gear with 15/45T sprockets and 52-57 highway mpg, yes ya'll read that right.

I'd go for ironic... You been taking spelling lessons from Laser? It's OK, spelling is over rated. A great man once said, "If you can only think of one way to spell a word, then you aren't very creative"... or something like that...


EDIT: It was Mark Twain and I paraphrased a bit, but you get the idea.

You need to watch out. I was going to switch to the BD 8" light but just found out that I need Hi/Lo beam on the bike to be legal. So check with your state to find out the laws .

A real good one, and seems to last.

well, that didn't work. evidently i've got an aftermarket light set up. bulb is a twist in with two diodes on the back. similar to a car bulb, except for the glass part.

well, anybody got any good suggestions for a "better" aftermarket set up? was looking at a cyclops from acerbis. anybody try one?

Besides RAD manufacturing, who else will make aftermarket hubs for the 650l I got a spare CR125 hub I need for the front to build my street tires now I need a spare rear whether stock or aftermarket I don't care. Though I wouldn't mind a cush drive rear. Thoughts?

I have a single 8" HID and it is amazing!!! It is on my KTM, and I will be swapping over to the "L" when I get the time.

Some have grafted the Lights off of a Buell Uly or the Honda Ruckus
