Speaking of Bling

Does anyone have a link for red anodized clutch covers, ignitions covers, and engine plugs?

The crank must be rotated anti clockwise or the auto deco comes on.
If you have hot cams it don't matter.

Nice Focker. Hey what are you doing for rear signals? And can you take a few pics of how you mounted those front signals? I'm in the same boat with the Acerbis tank.

Check out the rears here - http://www.xr650rforum.com/the-mod-s...inkers-t58.htm



I had to modify the headlight shroud so the turn signals would clear my new Acerbis tank when turning. First I drilled a pilot hole, then carved the shrouds with a hobby knife until the right size was obtained.

Now it looks like this:



I switch to the stock tank when I do short technical rides and put the Clarke back on for desert rides. I got mine sam as datol did, all the DS kit was disconnected and in a box (minus a couple of pieces) and needed a few things added. Now it's perfect and I love it!


Maybe I should polish it a bit more though . . .

Nice looking bike!

I just put the Clarke 4.3 on my bike last night. Does the size make that big of a deal to warrant the time switching for different rides? Can't you just fill it up half way or is the sloshing too much?

Has anyone tried a Super Moto front fender on their dirt only XRR?
Is it not recommended because of the dirt & mud that's thrown from your front tire and flings up ahead of you?

Like this one...

More because it's a pain in the ass to get to the last gallon or so that gets trapped in the left(?) tnak lobe. It's worth it if that's the only thing between me and a long walk. Otherwise, not so much.

Plus the stocker is a little narrower which is nice for really tight trails.

Don't do it. My bike came with one. Traded it for a real fender. Mud will get in your eyes THRU your goggles.

I know some guys like to put XR400 or CR fenders (not sure which fits) on their XRR's. Not quite as much of a curvey-over look.
