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..

I was just in there today. I work just down the street from there. Kyle's a good guy, but it's just Kyle and a couple other folks inside the place. Chances are the light was just something branded that they never really made. I would think the bulb itself could be analyzed and a replacement found. Post a pic of what's left or go look at ProCycle's website and see if you can ID it. How did it "implode"?

I noticed the rubber ball mounts on my Ram mount were crushed/distorted after I cranked it down enough to hold the hard plastic on the end of the Double Take mirror. Actually it still wasn't holding. As soon as I got going fast enough the wind would push them back. It seems like it's just that the end of the mirror segment is just very hard plastic that the ram system can't find enough friction to hold it. So I decided to try dipping those hard plastic ends in rubber


I did 3 dips (dip-dry, dip-dry, dip-dry), but I think just dipping it once will do the job. I set them up a tiny bit forward of where I wanted them. The wind pushed them back a bit. Now they're perfect. They stay put, but will still move when impacted.

Just seemed a bit odd that I have all the paperwork leading in that direction yet he says they never made anything but stators and such. I am not really too sure how to figure it out the one I have now (Sylvania 7506) lights the lens and plate but I get no brake light actuation. I donr thinks he is stonewalling me or lying just not sure how to figure it out. To answer your question: my light wqasnt working at all so when my friend took the lens off it was the socket still plugged in and a bunch of glass dust that used to be the bulb. Found the bottom of the suspension a couple of times .

These don't move at over 100 and work well, you look under your arm. They are available here:
