There are a few good threads on here about the 650R's electrical system, and installing high-output stators, dualsport kits, accessories, etc. Quick search will turn them up...

I've done it a couple of ways, both very similar.

On my XR628, with a 250w BD rewind, I wired in a Fuzeblock FZ-1
http://www.fuzeblocks.com/index.php?pid=1#board
It has a built-in relay, which I wired to the d/s kit's 5w running light in the headlight shell. This light comes on when the d/s kit is switched on, so turn on the kit and the fuseblock and accessories, have power.







On the XR650R, which I also installed a Baja Designs 250w rewound stator on (125w AC, 125w DC), I used an Eastern Beaver sealed "3 Circuit Solution".
It's a simple "fuseblock", with 3-fuse Metripack 280 connector and 40a Panasonic relay. The relay is triggered the same way - Positap'd into the 5w running light in the headlight shell.
The sealed kit uses Sumitomo waterproof connectors.
http://www.easternbeaver.com/Main/Pr...3_circuit.html

I have my GPS and Vapor 12vdc power (for full backlighting) sharing a 2a circuit, Symtec grip heaters on a 5a fused circuit, and there's a spare for aux lighting (like Trailtech self contained HID).

The kit's H4 headlight is on AC power, I've installed an 85w Osram H4 for a combo of good light without the wiring and connector heat a 130/90 would bring.
On the DC side, there's plenty of juice left for a pair of 30w or 40w Trailtech HID's on a bar mount (a spot and a flood)



Battery options:

The d/s kit uses a 10x AA NiCAD battery pack, 0.7a from Baja Designs as a replacement for $39.95
You can source these battery packs at 1.0a for $16.95 (for RC cars)

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO - what a ride!"

small 12v batterys

What batterys do you guys use ?? I am talking about the BD small 12v that fits under the seat. I have tried some other brands and they have failed in less time then the BD ones.

I'm 6'5 and 225, probably add another 20 lbs in rider's gear.

And then the bike will be anywhere from + 0 to 40 lbs for fully loaded...

Definitely curious on your opinions...

thanks,
andre

225 will greatly benefit off new springs. I'm 200 and felt the bike undersprung, and went up a few steps and still think it's undersprung, but I have yet to test it. Why test when I can jump straight into a Baja trip =) What better way to test.


Most people go with Eibach or Racetech springs. Apparently the same spring, same factory, different name. Cost about the same if I recall correctly.

There's a few differing ways of thought on suspension, but I went with Borynack's site suggestions both spring wise, and valving. I settled on the desert set-up for all around riding. I don't plan on jumping my bike other then hill crests, and minor drops. As you may or may not know, our bikes come with complete crap oil, and not so great valving. Huge improvements alone going to good oil.

Here's his webpage:

http://borynack.com/XR650R/

Keep in mind he talked about taking the site down for a re-work, so I suggest you back it up if you can just so the info doesn't go missing.

Key points he makes:

1) He doesn't suggest going with Racetech's or other suspension manufactures recommendation on spring rates
2) He runs thin oil because the viscosity doesn't change as much with temperature, making it easier to fine tune. (2.5-3W)

Many people has used his settings with generally great sucess. I'm so stoked to test my bike out, even if I will have 40-50lbs of gear on my bike. I thought it was HORRID before with the stock oil and valving. It was scary riding down rough gravel roads, let alone the gnarly riding we have around here.

Mine is actually behind the headlight shroud. But it's about the same size as a pack of cigarettes, if that helps.

I'm sure I could put it under the seat if I wanted to.....

Length 3.78 inch / 9.60 cm
Width 0.98 inch / 2.49 cm
Height 2.44 inch / 6.20 cm

Sweet - I have room under my seat for this size. I am replacing my B/D NiCad pack with this 12V unit. For $18 it's worth a go, and no memory issues.Power-Sonic 12V/.8AH Sealed Lead Acid Battery w/ WL Terminal for Genesis 12V 0.8Ah Battery
