how to mount rifle to xr

Big game season is a long way away. But I need to start making plans now.
I need to mount a long-gun to my xr650r for travel down fire roads and some open dirt trails.
Any ideas? Anyone find a solution?

Which chain is that?
I cant remember, I would check but I am in europe for 3 months. It was a japanese name brand. It may have been D.I.D.

Find yourself a saddle scabbard and mount it on the airbox side of the bike.

Straightening the rear fender on an XR650R

Straightening the rear fender on an XR650R

All XRRs have the rear fender tilted to the left and mine was no exception.
While the XRR is an all purpose, no bling ride, the crooked fender just looks a tad… abandoned.

With a “C” clamp, I straightened the fender and further tilted it to the right by lifting towards the rear rack. (wish I could post pics). I placed a 1500 watt room fan heater on top of the rear wheel, blasting up at the fender. I also heated the stressed areas around and in between the mounting screws with a heat gun.
After about 20 minutes the fender was sprayed with cold water and when the clamp was removed the fender stayed bent a touch to the right, but way straighter than before.

The straight fender just makes the whole bike look a lot better… you know, for a dirt bike.

Just sharing…

Try a heavy duty tripod head built for 40-60lb cameras mounted to the bars with a M249 SAW and about 200 rounds of ammo. That should work.

You might be able to get a MK19 on there, but they are pretty bulky and you wouldn't be able to carry much ammo.

If you really want trick, get that eyeball tracking aiming system used in Apaches so you shoot everything you look at.

2.5" rockets can be nice in a target rich environment.

Damn!

Looks like prime riding out there in Summerland!

We're doing Koocanusa in two weeks. That's about as good as it gets around here. Whoops... Lots of whoops...

I have a rack that bolts on the rear rack of my klr and seems like it would hold a gun sturdy. The previous owner used it to go trap shooting, I never have. I'll be home next Sunday and take some pictures. You can have it if it will work for you.

All typos and misspellings blamed on my phone.

Depending on what you call a 'Long Gun' found the best option was to sling mine over the shoulder when chasing porkers in the black soil plains country in NSW
Main issue there was the bolt handle, to avoid discomfort it needed to be slung over the left shoulder.

Never managed to build/test them but have seen handlebar mounted bracketts used on quads.
Would need straps/bungees to hold the item in place, much better riding through scrub as it wont get snagged as easily.

Sling goes over one shoulder and over your head.

I strap mine to my pack vertical. I can't see any safe way of putting it on the bike without serious risk of destroying it in a crash.

I also remove the optics and pack them away if the rifle has QD mounts.

Actually nobody really uses T-stats here. It's normally pretty slow, technical riding. That picture is about the most wide open it gets. That being said a bike would likely benefit from one, but come summer you'd be wanting to take it out to help that little bit with coolant flow.

Not entirely sure if it was plugged vent lines, freezing air filter, or icing carb but there were times when the jetting would feel off. I know my sled had carb heaters I'd have to turn on in that 0 to -5 temp range and it would clear things up right away. This is my first few winter rides so I'll have to trouble shoot that next fall.

Winter riding in the right snow conditions is a blast though! So much fun! Better yet, clean gear, clean bike. Add gas and go ahead!

I'm looking to travel down 100k of fire roads at stupid speeds. Not an ideal solution.
