For DSR the IMS tank is a must.
Water crossing :)

My RXV came without a fan; this is supposed to be the right one except it doesn't have the cage on the back. We'll see..
I just ordered the IMS tank; it should be here in a week or so.
Yep, this is a PERFECT bike for you: you're proven Weird... Normal folk just notice Land Rovers as being the vehicles on the hard shoulder with the bonnet open...
It's a disease, I know.
But that LR3 is amazing.
Stock tank is good for about two hours of trail riding. IMS tank hasn't shown up yet.
Stock tires are decent in the loose stuff but wearing out fast--they'll be replaced with these (Pirelli Scorpion XCMH):

It was a group effort.
OK, so it took a bit more than a week for it to arrive, but it came today!
The tank is all installed. I rode about 75 miles yesterday, all off-pavement, and the fuel light didn't even come on!
I can definitely feel the extra weight on the front, but it's worth it.
I Just mailed a check for a 2009 left over 450, pretty excited to get it. Couldnt find a larger major thread on these bikes on ADV am I missing one ?
Just not many of these bikes out there, period. ApriliaForum has a dedicated subforum for them, but it is mostly SXV-centric. Still, it's a great technical resource.
But I think this is the thread that you're looking for.
I had a feeling that was the case hopfully I can add to the thread when I get my bike
I just ran down to the gas station after putting 75 miles of dirt riding on last weekend, and it got just around 30mpg--a little higher than I was expecting!
There are many minor threads with interesting infos and comments:
And then a fantastic build thread:
But, no, the RXV has never been blessed with a "specific bike" thread... Is this gonna be the one? Don't know yet but I subscribed anyway... Very interested in this little monster...
Still my favorite bike, 10K & counting
Malcolm Smith has a couple of them 'upstairs' he'll let go for $2500. No titles though. Gray market I guess.
Talk about a white elephant.
I have one that has a few hundred miles on it, just never got the time to ride it and am thinking of putting it up for sale. It is in like new shape and had the DE-restriction done before I picked it up from the dealer when it was new.
keep an eye in the classifies for the posting. It one powerful Thoroughbred and those who have one know it is what it is and that's a lot.
If I were going to spend too much money on a dirt bike, it would be a Freeride 350.
