we are just coming into our winter so riding season is on ...
one reason I really like that antigravity battery, somewhere on adv here I'd seen a picture of one mounted where BDesigns had their "AA's" mounted behind the front headlight cover.. and looks like a great fit.

As for a big tank... I'm still shopping for just the right fit

Here is where i mounted mine. I reused the mounting strap that held the AA battery pack in place. The battery is the smallest one I could find at Walmart. The setup has worked well thus far.

I was leaning towards the IMS but seems my radiator fan will be in the way so I have a little more research to do on the tanks...

that's exactly where I plan to put mine :) great idea!

I was looking at the acid batteries till I saw the posts for the antigravity.. can't wait! Shame I have to wait for the paychecks to catch up to the bike parts

Been working on getting mine ready for longer range adventure. Got lighting sorted out, have the 6.3 tank on the way. Next is some wind protection and bags and rack.

What rack do you guys run and like? I have a moose expedition rack, but I'm not a fan.

Some pics of the my new light bar installed.

I've been eyeballing the manracks, specifically rhe fender support.. mostly want to get rid of that rear fender twist. Suppose I should find a replacement subframe though since I don't have a 5' bar to give it a twist as suggested in other threads

i had a tci rack and brace ...pulled the rack and brace off and binned it ...you can see our xrr's come with a rear fender support from the factory

man racks sort of followed this ..great idea he came up with ...our subframes also are a bit different than yours as it has a few tabs welded on and some t nuts for the rear fender support to bolt to

i have removed the stock ally subframe and a mate has made some subframes exactly the same but out of steal ...very strong ..


so now i just run a rear flat rack over the fender and my giantloop bag


the bag over the tank holds fuel bladders so i can carry 50+ liters of fuel 13+gallons

I'm not sure of the brand of light. I got it from a friend of a friend deal. It is very bright though. The outside 4 are floods and center 4 are spots. I used acerbis hand guard bar mount hard ware to mount the light. Yes it is mounted to the bars.

Not a fan of the cheesy plastic button with led indicator. Gonna see what's out there to swap on.

With Bluetooth so common you think you could have a wireless remote setup and mount it to where a rider would want it.

yes they are and very very strong .....he made 4 only and has ppl pestering him for more ... but there time consuming to make and the price would be around 700 so not really a thing to make for a xrr as most ppl cant see the bigger picture and wont pay that price

yer gunna need duals on that pig if you keep piling crap on the poor thing. save some room for that project i'm making us. Looks like your tire found the fender brace. I'm working on a compression stop for the rear wheel than I think its a go on the surprise part. How does the forks handle that fuel load? I think I can get your frontend a good 25 lbs. lighter for other more important goodies (beer). You my friend might wanna consider getting a ford diesel p/u truck knock out the glass and sell that lil pig Chuck
