I'm looking at getting some racks for the Pig to hold some soft panniers. What brands do you reccomend from the US?

Our dollar is high ATM so it may be a good time to do some importing

Giant Loop or DirtBagz come to mind. I've had both but kept the Giant Loop.

Just came back from a + 1,000 milles tripp, the bike is running strong, It burned 1 qtr galon of oil and Im thinking it might be time for a new set of piston, but not shure....

Added a sheep skin for my now monkey ass... good stuff but is not the ultimate piece of confort.



The light sucks when dirt running at + 45 mph at night with no moon and halloween. Would prefer to stay with the original set, but will have to install a small batery for HID Xenon

One last thing. I was thinking (sometimes I do..) I want the big Acerbis gas tank, but I was told that if I fall, its easy to break it... any comments on this issue???

Thanks

Easy to break the 6.3 Gallon Acrebis tank!!! Oh I guess someone forgot to tell my tank that. Lets see been down maybe 3 times this year at speed. Put some scuffs in the tank but nothing else has happened. Seems to take quit the licking and keeps on ticking.

Unless you drop the bike off a cliff or happen to hit a rock just right I would not worry.

I be more worried about your clutch cover breaking when you tip it over on a rock...like mine did. The case protector is a wise investment.

Another +1 on the big Acerbis. It's is a great tank and pretty bullet proof, look through my NV - 1500 miles of fun thread in my sig for a testament to the durability of the Acerbis tank.

Did you dyno it with knobbies or street tires? Knobbies will rob you of several HP on a dyno.

There's no way this bike only make 40hp. Out of the crate it makes 45 all stuffed up. Uncork it, and several have been dynoed between 50-55hp.

I think I remember Matt telling me that his dyno is pretty conservative (as opposed to some of the more 'optimistic' dynos/dyno operators out there).

After reading about all Ryan's cam-related engine problems, I pulled my Stage 2 cam and went back to the stock cam. Lost a LOT up top, but almost no noticeable difference at lower RPM's. Tempted to try a Stage 1 cam, but I'm kinda over it. Really liking the idea of an all-stock Honda engine. I want to ride this thing into the ground.

It's all about the dyno, sounds like jesusgatos had his bike on a truth telling dyno. Dynojet will show that 55HP...55 minus 20% cheating factor gives you 44 at the wheel.

Im also selling my deliciously tricked out and delicately cared-for XR650R. Here's a sneak. More trick bits than I can throw a stick at: Trail Tech Vapor, BRP submount triple clamp, Clarke 4.3 gal tank...etc...etc. The list goes on and on.

Nice NZ pic mate. Had to laugh when I saw the Canterbury Draught bag.

Where is that track?

I grew up riding Otago high country and missing it these days!

Hi everyone, those are some nice looking bikes! I bought my '02 BRP second (or possibly third) hand back in December of 2009. I'll try to list the mods, but I'm not 100% on what all has been done.

Acerbis 6.6 Gal Tank
ESP suspension (set up for much lighter rider than me)
XR's Only Case Saver
Flame looking rear disc shield
Fourstrokesonly tail light
CRF450R clutch perch and "hot start" (decomp) lever
Endurance speedo/odo
Nice skid plate (not sure who makes it.)

Theres probably more, but thats what jumps out at me.
