I've had it in mine for 4 months.It is $379.00 from cyclebuy.com (free shipping in the USA)
It is the EXP 2 and it is magical. Easy install and easy setup.

Sadly, still saving up for the Clarke tank.... :(

Thanks guys for that!

I might have my Clarke for sale. 4.3, natural. If you can wait I think I even know people who go to Washington (tacoma area) every few months it seems.

Selling my XRR in SoCal

Love this bike, but getting up there in years. This bike likes to go fast, but Father Time is slowing me down. See ad for pics and more details. Call or PM if interested.

If all Yes then I can see an advantage having one.
I'm asking because I'm wary to buy something fully automatic, I'd like to stay in control, call me old fashioned. And no, I won't have a rear brake replacing my clutch lever either, at least not on the Pig, as I think it's not for tight technical riding.
Such would be something to consider for the CRF230F though - if it's available for this bike.

That sucks man. At least your rider didn't get broken in your crash.

Anyway best way to cheer up about it, get another bike to hold you over while you fix that one.

Does anyone have any experience with internally lowered shocks? My rear shock was dropped several inches by the PO who was short. I'd like to bring it back up to stock height. I have a new uncut spring coming. I assume there is a spacer in there also to limit travel?

I know there is an aftermarket suspension link out there to lower the rear suspension (google lowering link), but sounds like yours may be lowered more than that.

I don't know about where you live, but around here, plated XRR's are rarely for sale. I was looking for a spare for a while. But then after not finding one I decided I would get something lower maintenance for my other bike. Nice loooong service intervals on the K bike, and no chain to take care of bonus it owns the highway, which I do alot of.

replaced and still noisy

So, i went ahead and replaced the outer basket with the Hinson, center (inner) basket and new clutch bushing. It is all oiled and after a few 5 - 10 second starts just to get the oil moving around, I let it sit and when I cranked "Oprah" up this morning she started to get noisy again. So, now I am going to check the cam chain & tensioner....
Beechum should be loading up a video of it later.

They just came out with the EXP clutch for the XRR, previously you had to buy the Z-Start. The EXP is much easier to install, although you loose a few clutch plates. I have one in my Christini and it seems to work fine. My XRR has the Z-Start, which is no longer available for the XRR and is slightly trickier to set up, but keeps all the clutch plates. The Z-Start is also externally adjustable for engagement rpm and speed, while the EXP requires going into the clutch to adjust.

The EXP allows the use of the clutch lever, in fact it requires it, although I have found a way to go without. The EXP also allows bump (compression) starting, which the Z-Start does not. I just safety wire my kickstarter lever on. With a powerful bike like the XRR or a CRF450, I see no reason to ever use the clutch lever. The Rekluse always slips the clutch the perfect amount and I can wheelie with a twist of my wrist in any gear on the CRF and at least the first 3 on the XRR with 15/44 gearing.

Depends what you are running on your bike.

If just one headlight, probably don't use the stock regulator, just leave it disconnected then.

But another setup common with the BD DSK is to have two headlights, one through the AC regulator, the other headlight through the BD DC regulator/rectifier.

You can download wiring diagrams from bajadesigns.com or whatever their website is called. Google it and diagrams and they should come right up.

Holy shit any of you guys try one of those Ducati Hypermotard 1100evo's? I just test rode one today while my K bike was in for the 6k mile service. What an awesome bike. I can't even explain, you gotta ride one for yourself. It reminds me of my XR but with everything twice as good and three times more refined. Maybe the coolest thing I ever rode, but tough to say it's more fun than the likes of ATC250R, K1300S, manual shift LS1 camaro convertible, all close, but damn that Ducati was a freaking blast to ride.

First sitting on the bike it feels like a scooter, all you see is dashboard and road. And the thing is sooooo light. I haven't looked up the specs, but it felt lighter than my XR, and it's an 1100!!! Then you start it, and the clutch is making an aweful racket, which is very cool when you know it's supposed to do that until it's in gear. Then the engine runs thumpy but super smooth, and doesn't vibrate you like the XR, but thumps something awesome.

Then you start the wheels rolling. I can't describe it. I want one Too bad it costs as much as my K bike and I can't afford two of them, and the K bike rules on the highway, which I ride alot. You know, if it's wasn't for my stupid state government charging 6.25% sales tax, I'd buy one then sell it once I hated being broke, but tax and title is a $750 bill at the registry, which you don't get back if you sell it, and I just paid that bill on the K. So I guess I just dream about it for now....

This pic doesn't do justice to how small and light this thing is, and it's an 1100!!! hmm 377lbs dry evidently, but it did not feel it. Kickass!!!
