Anyone got an idea where to find a used RAD cush hub or similar? Can one order spare rubbers?

I am not sure what you just said, but I am guessing you are talking about the radiator mount rubbers? You should be able to order those. IF not, should be easy to make as well.

I think he's referring to RAD hubs, with the cush drive. Pretty sure you can get replacement rubber

Right...
"b" and "n" are too close... sorry.

Yep, was talking about those (got it edited now). There is no cheaper alternative - or is there?

Thanks!

ElectroSport Dakar Dual Sport kit tail light spec?

Just got off the phone with Kyle at ElectroSport after waiting for him to call me back from last week. He never called and they are amazingly hard to get in touch with! Anyway, my tail light bulb from the kit imploded within the lense and I need to replace it but have no idea what to get. He claims they never made kits even though I have all the instructions and directions with their name on it? Well here I am needing a damn bulb and have no idea what to get. Any suggestions? (yes, I already combed through the literature I have, to no avail) .

Does there exist a mirror(s) that I can get on my XR that wont blow back at 75mph? I have a double take and its impossible to get it to stay. The lower mount ball is loose in the housing and moves. The RAM clamp is solid and does not move. Once I go fast, the mirror becomes only good at looking at my arm. I love the doubletake, if it would stay still!

check your locknut washer

my locknut washer for front sprocket ,ie the inside groves had worn resulting in huge amounts of lateral movement of the sprocket , this caused the chain to rub against the frame resulting in a snapped chain . bike had 15000 miles/20000km's

Same issue here.

Not sure if it was rubbing on my frame though?

I partially blame it on the sprockets I was using. We'll leave them unnamed for the time being (I named them earlier in this thread).

New one is about 8-10$.

Had work done on all 4 valves after getting a compression test. So the top end is in great shape now. Started it up and the knocking is still the same. What in the bottom end could it be? My buddy suggested the crank. I'm not the best with bikes. Any advice would help.
Take a close look at your cam chain, adjuster and sliders. There is a front and rear slider. My rear slider, cam chain and adjuster were trash and caused the same sound you are describing.

If you still have the stock fender and tail light cover. I would recommend one of these. http://xr650r.blogspot.com/2012/09/d...ht-insert.html

Mine has worked fine for almost 3 years and has been through a bit. It was getting dim so I checked it and the only thing wrong was that the entire taillight was full of dust from the desert and mexico. It is a good light.

I thought Baja Designs bought out Electrosport's DS lighting parts. I think my taillight is an 1157 bulb..
