are you (or anyone else) using the Touratech power converter to "smooth out" the power supply?

The batt should do the deed. It's regulated full-wave, and with the batt it should be peachy. I admit to not having thrown a scope on it. I could throw a DVM on ACV only just to see if there is an AC component to the DC if I think of it and get a spare moment though.

If you are concerned, a cap-zapitor from Radio Shack should be fine. Needn't be overly large, and could fit beneath the seat.

A couple, should come up in a search. Most have determined that what the kit lightens from your wallet ($800+) it adds back kinda high for the XR.
Edelbrock, baby. Edelbrock.

Hi bigwavedave - the island is a maze of logging roads in various stages of upkeep. I live near Sooke and mainly ride in the Sooke Hills.
Golden must still be winter wonderland - great riding in the summer though!
Contact me when you move to the Island.

Garmin CSX60 - using AA batteries. Keeps the unit sealed from dirt and moisture, works for about 20 hours before I need a new pair.

Use LITHIUM batteries. Longer life and a lot lighter which helps lessen the issue of loss of power due to vibration.

Thumb D/S kit ordered

I just ordered a XRR D/S kit from Baja Designs. "Jayce" working at BD was great to deal with. They were very helpful. Pics of the install to follow soon .
