Check out Cycra. The bend to them is unique and seem to offer more room for the old dick beaters. I replaced my acerbis rally pros with them and love them.

Dual sport kit ??? (yes I've done a search)

I'm at the point of ordering a D/S kit for the XRR. It's down to Baja Designs vs. Trick Dual Sport. They each have their strong points. Has anyone with the Baja Designs kit found problems with the components behind the headlight shroud being exposed to the elements? With the Trick D/S kit, will the UFO integrated signal/tailight hold up to the XRR vibes without a subframe? Would the "Dirt Bagz" fender brace fix that? Thanks for input.

I've had the BD DSK on my XRR for just over a year now. It's been exposed to all
sorts of weather and high pressure cleaning... it's great, no problems.

Thanks Mudshark. What did you do with your stator when you put on the d/s kit?

I went ahead and got the one from Ricky Stator. It bolts right in and hooks
up perfectly.
I got the extra Headlight relay form BD as well and run the "main" lights off
the one 100watt coil in AC, using the stock regulator.
The other 100watt coil is used the run the charging system that takes care
of the brake lights, turn signals, running lights and horn.
This makes it 100% street legal.
BD and Ricky Stator will provide you with really good diagrams to get it all
set up.

Question for you fellars with the acerbis sahara tank. How is it holding up to to your wipe outs, does the tank push on the radiators in any way and if so what have you done to protect the rads? I read over on the HUBB that some had a concern on this issue. I have the tank waiting but the bike has yet to show up . I want to take care of this fix if needed
Cheers

Gaspipe fabricated a brace for the lower part of the tank to the downtube of the frame that works well. Should be able to search for it.

xr650r adventure conversions

If anyones intersted, I've got some pics of my XR650r bought in greece, already street legalized (they are street legalized in Italy by a company called Dallara, and appear identical to australian spec xr650rs) w/ staintune headers and exhaust and an interesting australian 25 litre tank, and other mods, but apparently my photos are too big to upload. the photos I see on the site seem pretty detailed. am I missing something? Tx

Precision Concepts makes a brace that support the tank right down to the top bolts for the skid plates, which is what I use. I think they're a good combination of radiator support and allowing the tank to flex without puncturing. It's the same brace that Johnny used with the Sahara tank when he ran the Dakar in 2000.

I haven't gotten around to getting a ram mount yet, but I pigtailed 12VDC off of the Baja Designs wiring behind the headlight. Good to go, especially since that side of the stator is powering only LEDs and turnsignals right now. Should be good for an electric vest too, if needed.
