1.8 oz rad cap

Bajadesigns also has a 1.8 cap for the XRR. It is $26.95. If you click on the XR-650R link at the bottom of the page they have a few more goodys for the Big Pig.

I ordered the BD part and it came in a Kawasaki box. Exact same part as Kawie's.

Pivot Pegz (bloody awesome), Seat widened and softened.
Eagle Screen, Wolfman enduro tank bag (brill!), Ballards rack also a 12V power outlet. 15/41 gearing, Renthal hangers raised 20mm, Home made panner racks.
Engine is de-restricted but generally stock

Still to do 280mm oversize front brake, 45 tooth rear (41 too lazy) & maybe a pipe.
That is a very nice looking Xr! Quick question, how well is the rack that you have supported. It is the nicest looking rack I have seen for the R and was just wondering how you like it. Also where can I get one?

Cheers.

Any issues/tips fitting the fuel line on your Safari tank?
Approx range and conditions?
Also the choke plate gets a lot of mention in posts, checked mine during recent service and it appears OK.
Ballards list them local in Oz may give them a call.

It bolts to the seat bolts, front of the rack and the sub fame in the middle. It come form Ballards (www.ballards.cc) with all but a couple of spacers so it doesn't crush the tail light. Had it fairly heavy load and it is solid. Cheers

Fuel tank was a bitch to fit as I have rad guards fitted. Just made it a little more to spread the tank around. Also had to make a wider bottom brace. Fuel line was easy. I've only ridden it with 15/41 gearing (think 45 would be better) though some hard trail condition (search Omeo in ride reports) and I think I was getting 16kpl. So 25 litres X 16 = 400ks. Probably get more on more open riding. Same here my choke is ok and have checked it a few times over the years. That said all the issues mentioned at www.xr650r.us I have found to be true. ie clutch bush, crankcase breather crimping, RH footpeg bolts, thermostat. Cheers

Is that rack PMB. Looks like they are using a darker alloy than earlier ones. How is it holding up?

XR's Only

Steve,
The rack came from and is marked as XR's Only. The rack pictured in the link is not the rack I have on my bike. Maybe they discontinued the model I have or the picture may be the wrong one for the 650R. I don't know.
http://www.xrsonly.com/content/index...mart&Itemid=77
The rack I have is a little on the small side for me, 2" longer and an inch wider would have been nice. Still it has been solid and has not given me any problems.

Let me know if you need close up shots, I'll see what I can do.

HTH,
DK
