Prefer the white but to each his own.

I agree, that pic has been my desktop wallpaper for many months now. I was noticing how much ridefreak's bike looked like this one, but with the different tire standing out to me.

Hmmm this winters supply of goodies all came in,

Fork valve shims, doing the Borynack compression valve mod.
HDB handguards and slightly lower handlebars so they fit
TM40 carb from Powerbarn
Braking rotors front and rear (Amazon seemed to have the best prices)

Anyone know of a radiator hose fitting the KTM fan thermostat will screw into?

On to the wrenching.

Congrats!! Can't wait to hear how the compression valve mod works out for you. It's on my short (long) list.

My XRR "street tracker", 19" wheels Dunlop DTII dirt track rubber, CRF fork swap.
I gotta get a newer pic with the brembo 320 rotor. Have 17's for it as well, but they look so small on the XRR.
I use it like a motard/adventure/fireroad moto. You couldn't tell though because I'm so OCD with cleaning it.

Nice looking bike, Vinnie! I assume it's been lowered somewhat? Are those CD5s or 7s?

[QUOTE=larryboy;18044623]Had a great time talking with you guys!! Met tons of great folks on that short three day trip!!





You a MotoBro, Steve?

I hung out with those Oakland guys back in the late 70,s. I was never a member though. I was thinking of opening a shop that works on old bikes and liked the name. Where are you located? Im In Grass Valley,Ca.

Quick Question

I'm going to be looking at XR650R soon that has been sitting for quite awhile.

Anything special to be concerned about?

Anything other than the obvious-all fluids, carb, brakes, fork seals, etc?

I've got An XR400 and love it and been looking for a 650 for awhile and this might be the one if it checks out.

Thanks for any advice!

Thanks Shib's, I already thought that was OTT

I had a look - but can't find any 'how-to' for posting pics here. There used to be a button, simple as pie, but the darn thing has gone now.
Yeah, I did see the link-button, via some piccie-site, but it used to be possible to post from my pc direct.
Someone care to help here pls? I'm probably thick, or maybe got a semi-spammer rep these days, dunno......
