I do have a quesion,
Is the way I ran the crank case vent ok?
Bbasso,
You might want to go ahead and cut that vent tube down to about 2/3 it's length. That way you don't have to route it way up and over like that. It may also negate the possibility of any kinks. I think the instructions (if yours came with any) suggest doing that. BTW, nice bike/pics

That's it! I'm going to finally get rid of the smog system on my 07 XRL. So no jetting changes are needed once you lose the smog stuff? I currently have stock jetting as well, but I live just above 6000ft and the bike seems to run pretty good.

Bbasso, The vent tube is fine.. I did the same thing.. No worries. I like the cooler set up on the rear ... Is the bike a riot?!?!?! I would like to know about the brace too. When you get it on lemme know just how big a difference it is. I think I NEED one. ....

Hey BBasso... I am a few hours away in Duluth, Ga and have all of the tools you could need and would gladly install whatever you want, N/C.

I have plenty of space at the house if you want to do a drive, repair then ride... I am looking to ride this weekend!!!!

Hey, Cool thread ...I'm currently giving my BRP some more attention...the carb mods your planning are gonna be great, I took it one step further and got the Edelbrock pumper carb...gas mileage may have suffered but throttle response is what I wanted...I've got a bunch of mods and just love the simplicity of the XRL compared to my KTM

Wow... good to know I am not the only one I also had a KTM LC4 before the XRL. Yeah..... the LC4 had its pluses... but damn the XRL just does everything and I spend way less time turning a wrench. It took awhille to dawn on me, but after riding the XRL hard one day and putting it to bed without a bath or anything, then taking it out the next day and doing the same thing...... it just hit me.

"This thing brought back the feeling of what riding is all about and why I started riding in the first place". and that sums up the XRL.




I was looking for a street legal XRR but I found this a few years back for $2500 with only 300 miles on it and I could not turn it down.

The Dave's carb mod is the best bang for the buck. More performance gets expensive after that.

Great work on the bike!

The bike looks good with the new tank. I have the same one but in white. You will love it if you already don't by now.
