The stock XRL set up is 15 - 45 = 3.0 gear ratio
10% reduction would be 2.7, 15 - 41 will acheive 2.7 gear ratio so will a 14 - 38.
15% reduction would be about 2.55, 15 - 38 front rear.
I would try the 38 rear sprocket and then toss on the 14 tooth you probably currently have in your kit that you use for the trees. The thing I am not sure about if your going to be able to run the same chain as your off road setup.

Thanks I'll give it a try, It should be nice having two sets of wheels.
I run my pig 19 miles on the freeway Mon-Friday for work and usually hit the trails & desert on the weekends when I can. I'll post up once the goods show up and I experiment with sprockets.

I'll try to stick with the RK "X" ring 520 chains, the've been really good to me....9K so far on the last one I bought.

I have a 120 mile ride back and forth to work. After a few sets of knobbies its worth it to spend a little on a diffrent set of rims. Road tires will be much easier on the hands. I am building up a second set of rims, I am increasing the tooth count on the dirt set to 48 and I am going to reduce the tooth count on my street set to about 43.

I just switched to a DID chain. I hope they last better than the RK I just took off. The OEM chain lasted 10k, the RK only lasted 8k.

Just sold my xrl. Loved the bike, the thing was bullet proof, but I had to sell it due to it being too much bike for my size. I'll always remember it!

A friend with a Honda EX400 4-wheeler was doing some hop-up stuff that involved an after-market CDI box, so he gave me his stock CDI box. It is not the same part number, but the engine is very similar and the electrical connectors fit, so I gave it a try. I have had no problems from that substitution (8,000 miles so far).
Well guys, I finally tried to see if the hopped up ex400 CDI I got would work. The plug in were the same, but when I turned the key it blew the main fuse. Tomorrow I will try to get ahold of the manufacture and see if they can help. If any body knows where I can find a wiring diagram for the EX that sure would help!

Here's mine, got it brand new last Sunday. Finally started riding it to work. Wondering if this setup is DOT legal, and whether it is bright enough???

Nice bike!

I meant the red one...

Mikuni Carb from XRsonly

I'd appreciate feedback from those that have purchased the Mikuni from XrsOnly. I'm looking at upgrading to it, but would like your thoughts on the setup and operation of the carb.

Regards,

Garrett

Yeah, I was keeping it in the living room until my insurance came through, haha! The other bike is pretty nice too, for having fun and shedding pounds!

Ordered the Baja Designs drop down taillight/license holder, Maier MX rear fender, and IMS smog block off kit, all should get here this week!

That trip was all day time and when I emptied the flat pack into the tank I strapped it on the back. was just trying to get some weight on the front, with my fat butt and 10 lbs of gear on the rack its a bit light in front and tends to wash out easy.
