That's a great combo! I used that exact same combo on my 530 for thousands of miles without a hitch.

Nope it's worked great. it has a little more clearance than it looks like in the pics.

With all of the mods done to my XRR, ( racelight, Acerbis 6gal tank, computer, gps, rear rack, subframe support ect...) I've limited myself from a few types of terrain that I normally ride. I think it's time to add a 450 to the stable ... bare bones and light as hell, to pick up the slack when riding ds rides that are supported. The XRR stays right where it is. Not complaining, just sayin'...

I do like that fairing. Can you still get them????

I run the underseat tank but they have been known to flex it the rear mount point and split in some cases catching fire.



There are nutsets at the rear so I made up a plate just to keep it firm so now it is fixed front, middle and rear.



More on that fairing please? It is my last thing......

Aww shuk's

Thanks mate .. yes it is a fork brace ..why is it there you may ask??
i dunno why ......it was in a box of stuff i got from a fellow xr rider who sold his bike

i scored the parts bin

the rack is a turbo city job with under fender support ....they have the silly side mounts for bags but i cut em off and made some brace's myself for my bags ..works well
currently this is my work ride ,,so running street tires .....it currently has a 15/47 gear ..way to high for street ... but like most things i scored a Kush rear sprocket for nxt to nicks ...so i thought i would try it out .....ill buy a new 1 soon in a 42 tooth

as you can tell i like to talk about my bike

here's my dash i made myself ... the bike is setup for distance riding not really a hard core off track bike ... but like any good xrr it will do it all



the left side is where i mount my gps

You already have a 300 XCW, perfect lightweight compliment to the Big XR

so right! when you finish building the xrr to do one thing, it's so versatile you can just switch gears (literally) and build it up to do something completely different.

Quick question for you guys

I have an XRR that is somewhat stock, has a 4.3 gallon tank, BD headlight, homemade dual sport kit, stock gearing, lowered with a Performance Designs lowering block, and Kenda Trackmaster II's.

Here's a pic:



I see the pics and the mods of all of you guys, and there are some sweet looking pigs here. I was thinking about buying a DR650 for a second bike to use for longer rides, but a few deals fell through and now I am thinking about just setting the XR up a bit better.

My main questions are reliability, maintenance, and comfort.

How long are the motors/transmissions really good for, taken care of? I see a lot of conflicting stuff here all of the time, with numbers ranging from 80,000 to 20,000. Any rough ideas on when I'd be changing things like a crank, or internal transmission stuff? Piston and rings?

What oil change intervals are they actually good for? I know honda says 600, I've been doing them sooner and don't even have a speedometer or odometer, so I guess at this stuff.

Comfort wise, fix the seat, change gearing, and maybe a small bit of wind protection, right? Any recommendations on seat? Everything else I can figure out myself, but the stock seat is terrible. I have no natural padding.

I see luggage stuff being all over the map, and subframe concerns going every which way. It seems like I should be fine with the Giant Loop Coyote, right? Most of the breakage I've seen has been from way more stuff strapped on than just that. I'll probably have to strap a few things on the outside of the bag, maybe a tent, but nothing too heavy. Any and all heavy tools should be elsewhere somewhere, I haven't came up with a spot yet.

Thanks. I was kinda excited to have two dual sports and keep the XR light, but it's looking like I'll be better off spending some more money on her and having the 'one bike fits all' attitude.
