Point one and two work great for me.

thanks Martin!

I didn't know the SW Motech pegs go lower than the stock ones.. I'll take those! they are awesome... wider and that rubber will be handy while riding in town without my boots :)

again, thanks :)

Anyone have any suggestion for a tank sealer if this isn't what I should use?

Thanks

I've used Kreem tank liner many times over the years and its been great. It's a 3 part deal, stays flexible and is pretty easy to use. I know there are other similar products on the market but don't have experience with anything else.

Thanks for the reply on the tank sealers guys, I'll look into them both.

What about my earlier questions regarding the "lift kit" for the front shocks and the 18" wheel mod. Is there anyone out there that can shed some light on this idea that I have. I would like nothing better than to do an USD fork conversion but $$$$ as usual is always an issue.

Hey Tezza,

I own both of these bikes. As Greg said before they are completley different.
But you can use the whole front end (fork, wheel, brakes and lower fork clamp) of the XRV in the XLV if you use the upper fork clamp from the air cooled XR650L.
With this swap you'll get a better front suspension and brake.

Unfortunately this is all you can use from the AT.

Help

Ok, I found my problem and I have the new Mosfet to do my upgrade while I am here. The problem I have is the old RR has six wires coming off it and I was only expecting 5. The are many wires linking into the RR so i am a little lost. Here are pics of what i found and any help would be great.

Found this when I got things uncovered.








And here is a pic of the wires coming out of it.

Making progress

Ok so I have the three wires from the stator located and wired in,going to run a new line to the battery with the seperate 30amp fuse that came with the kit and the ground to a good ground source.

The last wire that was coming from the original RR I traced to the kickstand switch...

I have no idea if I am screwing my trace up but will run the magic check light on it to be sure I have the right wire.

Anyone have a clue on my mystery wire?

If you look at the picture above you can see the red(power) green(ground) and the lume with the three yellows in it. The wire running up to the top of the pic is my mystery wire.

According to the service book, the black wire is the feedback voltage line and should read battery voltage to the ground with the ignition switch ON. This is what "tells" the reg/reg when the elactrical systems are on and was removed from later models... just don't ask me why...

As per the bike's electrical diagram, this black wire connects to the loom and goes to the fuse box (Fuse C, 20A on a RD07 XRV750L year model).

If you're planning to use a Mosfet reg/rec, than you can leave that black wire out because the mosfet won't need it. Just isolate it correctly as this wire sits on the switched side of the fuse box (or you can use it to power your gps for instance...)

I hope this helps
