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.

Yeah, the XR chunks the softer Dunlops pretty bad in rocky terrain, actually it chunks most stuff in those conditions but the Des ITs seem to hold up ok.

Yeah it looked bad after like 40 miles lol. Other then the Desert IT, what knobbies are good for this terrain on the BRP? My other bike is in desperate need of a rear tire as well.

Dennis Kirk has the MT43 for $67 think I'll try it out, seems to be perfect for the riding I'm doing.

This year's Winter project, a 2002 I bought in early December from a Utah inmate... came with the graphics, 4.3 Clarke, Guts Racing seat, silicon hoses, countershaft guard...some anodized bling and some things that needed replacing.

I put on a Baja Designs d/s kit, sent the stator to them for a 250w rewind.
The front wheel was pretty banged up all the way around, so I had Woody's lace up a set of RAD CACR 7000 wheels to billet hubs with HD stainless spokes.
It needed bars, so I added new ProTapers with Cycra CRM handguards. The PO had put on a BRP sub mount for a Scotts damper, the amount of rise in the CR Hi bars is perfect for standup riding.

Couple of weeks ago, took it to Colorado State Patrol for it's certified VIN inspection and compliance inspection.....then to DMV for plates. The rules for dualsport conversions are still very relaxed here, you just have to have it inspected for compliance now... and they do check DOT tire stampings.

Local suspension guy Neil Hores has done great things on previous bikes, my XR628 most notably. He revalved, resprung both ends, new fork oil. It's very plush, much moreso than the XR628 was. I have not had the bike out in the dirt yet - I'm just wrapping it up and heading out tomorrow....so I am looking forward to seeing how it works.

For accessories, I put on an Eastern Beaver "3 Circuit Solution", a sort of 'mini fusebox'.... a 3 place fuse holder with a 40A Panasonic relay. The relay is Positap'd into the d/s kit's 5w running light in the headlight shell.....turn the kit on, the fuseblock has juice.
The Vapor backlighting and GPS power share a 2A circuit, Symtec grip heaters use another, and there's a free one for aux lighting or whatever.

The stator's 125w AC and 125w DC allow for a higher wattage H4, so I installed an Osram 80w-85w. Felt that was a good improvement in the amount of light, without too much heat into the wires and connectors.

The bike came with a Pro Circuit T4, which was a bit loud....swapped it for an FMF Q4, on the FMF Powerbomb header the PO put on.

The left radiator was replaced...



The chain and sprockets were shot.... (non o-ring D.I.D.), so I installed a new Ironman 48t, picked up a new 14t and 15t....and put on a new RK XSO chain with peened master link. I've had great luck with these chains.

Picked up a PMB rack in the flea market (yes, I re-routed the front brake line to inside the fork leg - that's how the PO had it)
