had it about 12 months now and i really like it ....i once left my 12v charger in the socket and drained it to flat about .2v .... i thought dam i have buggered it ...i placed it on my charger ..not a special 1 or nuthin just a cheapo ....put about 5v back in it and then back on my bike ... ran it for a good hr or so then looked at the v and was back to 13.5v ....that was about 6 months ago and no problems ... holds charge for a month or so no worries ... i ride weekly but ws away for a month ...tested v and was the same ....

so yup i recommend them

my lights are 100 watt spot ...55/60watt on the bottom and the 2 led's are 26 watt i think .. so im just under my watt capacity...with led tail light brake light

so they handle that with no issue charge wise ....every time i test the v i get 13.5v

sorry keyz i missed your post

the switch's at the top are mains pwr ... turns on light's dash and tail light
second switch pwrs spotlights and led spots ...switch via the high beam switch on the handle bars ..must be like this for correct road worthy ..via a relay
third switch pwrs the thermofan ...i dont use a temp sensor as my vapor has that so when i see the bike getting hot i switch it on

the fuse box is just that a fuse box so all my lights fan heated grips 12v socket so on are fused ... only popped 1 fuse when a wire rubbed ... but sorted that and all good now

if you look you can see where i labeled the wire ends at the fuse block ....makes for easy fix when i need to

just what I wanted to hear about that battery!

That tops the list of next buys next to a high output stator (BD perhaps)
and some LED lights (lots of deer around these parts)

The bike last week (freshly uncorked)





since then I have the LED brake light and blinkers wired up. The new tip on the exhaust is installed as well.

and the new dash featuring

BRP triple, HDB top clamp, brush guards and mirrors (work great btw!)



this is the bike last year when I got the BD dual sport kit for it



so by June I plan of having the following installed:

XRs only skid plate
BD Stator
Antigravity 4 cell battery
MondoMoto auxiliary lights
Powerhub 2
and the HDB top clamp needs a powerlet for charging the gps and cellphone while on the road :)

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
