those were exactly the lights i was talking about, they seem to be quite popular at the moment i believe. every time i look at them the average price seems to go up.

Plating dirt bikes is pretty new in Washington just became legal last year.

This bike is going to be fun.

Lookin good. I run 16/45 Steel sprockets when running 17's. Works good. The XRR will tear that aluminum rear up in no time. Also you can use the same chain length going from dirt(13/48) to sumo(16/45)

Question Xrs only front wheel replacement collar?

I'm looking for some info on this item. I recently bought a BRP and removed the front wheel to check the bearings. When I went to install it back on, the xrsonly collar that came with the bike has a gap between the seal and collar. The collar reduces down as it goes into the seal. The outer section is bigger than the seal opening. Maybe I'm missing something, but that bearing will be toast in no time. I didn't pay attention to it before removing it so I'm lost. I can't find a picture of it installed on the bike anywhere online.
Help please.

Here it is!

That sounds good thanks. i think some may have not noticed the 17s I'm running.

The aluminum sprocket was basically free with the wheels so I figured I would just go ahead and use it to see where I am on gearing. I will buy a steel sprocket when I get it sorted out.

I agree. I have a pair of DDM HIDs in my Hella 500s. Super bright and they have been working for over 3 years. I also have a BD LED light bar, I have been happy with it operation. I installed the light bar before the 24 hour race a few months ago so time will tell how well its made. The cost on the LED bar is 10X the HID mod.

I saw. Wanted to add the bit about steel. Did you ever get your swing arm welded after the chain chewed on it?

Eek

No one has used the collar? I put grease on it to band aid it but the blue is where the gap is. It can't be right.

What order did you tighten things up?
Me thinks you tightened the pinch bolts before you tightened the big nut...
My routine is as follows.
Put wheel on, tighten the big nut to pin the brake side spacer against the fork leg.
take the bike off the stand and push on the front suspension to make sure its not in a bind. Then i tighten the pinch bolts.

Is that the right XR650R hub and spacer?

That's not the right spacer. Mine has a lip on it that slides into the plastic piece.

There is no nut. Sounds like the seal is shot. I have this setup. Check the bearings. My seal is a proper fit to the small end of the bush.
