3. Has anyone successfully fitted the Buell headlight assembly to the beast ?

Here it is as it stands now:


Thanks for any help,

1. I've got heated grips on mine and it's fine.
2. The rear fender doesn't bother me, so mine's still there.
3. Don't know of the headlight, but I know my stock one needs to be replaced. It sucks.

I've been told it wont do a vest. There are all kinds of options for the tail light. You may want to do a search over on thumpertalk there just more to do with this bike over there.

I use my Gerbing jacket liner all the time. I'm sure it won't do heated grips as well though.

Anyoone know if the Acerbis 6-gallon tank can be fitted to an '04 650l? Aceribs says that, officially, it only works on '93-'96 models but the rep wasn'r sure that was correct...

hey forgot to answer this in the pm. mine is a 2000. every one ever made is the same though. well, other than the "bold new graphics". i think my acerbis 6 gallon was sold as a tank for the xr600.

I like my bike
I like it well
Get on the gas
it goes like hell
Bold new graphics
are bought in sets
remove the snorkle
replace the jets
mod the airbox
remove the smog
I like my bike
this pig, this hog
It's called a Pig
Which is a Pork
It runs much better
when it's uncorked
My bike's not lean
it does not pop
can't put both feet down
when I stop
people think
it's awful tall
the seat is high
the tank is small
I like the rims
I like the tires
I like the hoses
I like the wires
I like my bike
I think it's swell
I like my bike
My X. R. L
