    Or take the bike to work. But what if you have multiple bikes :hmmmmm

    There have been some pissed off people browsing local finnish forum, facebook etc. hoping to find a certain bike or rider. I don't know what they would do if they found one and a picture of it with a visible plate and I don't want to find out. Also sometimes police might be interested, I am pretty sure they have even gone that far to catch some idiot on a street bike caught multiple times in the speed cameras (local cameras take a picture from the front). So any identifying information, stickers etc. may get you in trouble along with the plate.

    I had a similar problem with mine, but the fix was easy in my instance.

    What happened was, when I had the bike on the stand, I inadvertently rotated the magnet on the back side of the sidestand slightly out of position. This was just far enough so that when the side stand was up the magnet did align properly with the frame-mounted sensor, so the cut out switch still operated as though the stand was down.

    The bolt that holds the magnet in place is a Torx T30, but there are faces on the bolt that allow you to get a socket on it if you don't have a Torx bit. Hopefully yours will be a similarly simple fix.

    I actually carry a small magnet now, just in case this happens again, on the trails.

    This happened to me a couple of times. It does cause the engine failure light to come on and even after you fix it and bike starts the light stays on for a while but eventually goes back off.

    Really can't see any police official spending 5 seconds trying to comb through the Web to find out who owns a particular motorcycle; only a detective investigating a serious case would put that sort of time into it, and believe me, they have way more important crimes to deal with. CSI stuff is all fantasy.

    If a local cop really cared about someone being a dick on a motorcycle, they can stop by one of several bike hang outs / bars around here and write a book load of tickets. But as you can assume, they choose to do nothing about it.

    Insurance claim investigator? Maybe, but only if the claim is in the multiple thousands. Most don't give two craps about claims under $2,000 (I've caught a shop trying to make a fraudulent claim once, adjuster didn't care)

    Hi, has anybody got a link to the website for the Cee Baileys XR650l screen? I've searched the thread and seen lots of references to the screen but only one link which goes to the Cee Baileys aircraft plastics site where i can't find any motorcycle gear......
    Thx

    Edit: Actually found it on the RockyMountain site now but what year XR650l screen fits the 701E 2017?

    My engine failure light didn’t come on - the bike simply thought the stand was down when it wasn’t. Here is a pic showing how little the magnet needed to be out of alignment to not read:

    Here is what I ordered. It has the very slightest grey tint to it:

    Honda XR 650L Commuter and Super Sport Motorcycle Windshield
    Item# MWHNXR650LGRAYSS

    I ordered direct from them but can't seem to find the mc section on their website now.

    And yet few weeks ago, there was a post from the Forest Service folks in one of the regional forums (PNW) asking the community to identify 2 riders who were behind a gate....

    Times are changing and it won't be long before they will have tools to just scan the forums automatically and identify people people, bikes etc. I used to not care - plenty of pictures of my bike with a plate. But I am starting to. No reason to make it easy for them

    I know it’s more $ but I went with a madstad for mine, easy to install and works to my satisfaction. I’m 6’3 but have bar risers so I went with the 18” version, very pleased.

    Just order it through Rocky Mountain. It's the same part# 1993 thru 2017. Or call Cee Bailey's and order over the phone. Not sure what's up with their site. Can't imagine they stopped selling bike shields.

    Note to self:
    Supermoto on wet leaves and mud is slippery, drifing in and out of corners on gravel is super fun.:rayof

    I've had madstad screens on a couple of other bikes. Well made product but they ended up being TOO big on both bikes for anything but cold weather riding.

    On a 701, a strong cross wind might actually cause it to take flight!

    I ordered the Cee Bailey screen from Rocky Mountain in the end. I prefer to have no screen at all but the pressure on my chest at 70 plus mph is too much for any lengh of time so the Cee Bailey will hopefully ease it without going too big screenwise. Thanks for the input though rcrinerii

    I have read elseware that Cee Bailleys has stopped motorcycle screen production. There might be the odd leftover available, but most were made to order.

    I checked their site a few weeks ago. No mention of motorcycles. They've been making them forever. I'm guessing there is more and more competition and their share of the market has shrunk.
