    The 4.6 gallon IMS fits a Spal 4", the 7g does not.
    As an aside, the KTM-fan is a Spal in a shroud.

    I have about 40,000 KM on mine. Oil changed every 2000 KM on trips, and valves checked/adjusted every 4000.


    I wasn't talking a sumo fender. Those things are just plain ass ugly. I run a CRF450 fender. Takes some trimming in the back area, but in my opinion it looks 100x better then any sumo or stock fender.

    I found them for $250 each from amazon, remote choke, main jet was retarded big, but I dropped it about 25 sizes to get it to come off idle...I was gonna lean them out on all the circuits, but it's pretty good with the smaller mains.


    Edit; this is the place I got my TM40's, the remote choke model makes it a TM40-6 and the "stock" photos that everybody on amazon is using is of another carb, NOT the TM40-6. You can convert the remote choke to a simple plunger, parts from Sudco on that.

    I got these when buying the above item.

    This may be a revisit. New brp (2001) to me. Dualsport with baja designs kit. Hit 6200 rpms and the bike would fall on its face. In all gears. Totally cut out. Back to 5000 rpms and pick up again. After much investigation, the usual fuel, no, air, no, electrical, started unplugging things one at a time, voila, the vapor computer power wire was connected to the ignition system. Must have been robbing needed electricity. Moved it to an accessory (blinker) wire and: Once again the monster of motorcycles. Durable to the extreme. Good news. I got a deal on a brp that used not to go over 70 mph. Though not the only reason he sold it. Took a chance that I could fix that. The accumulation of knowledge is a wonderful thing. Think about it, most of what we know someone else figured out. Thanks for sharing. Glad to share. Cheers!

    Are Ironman sprockets my best choice for sprockets on a dual sported XRR? A lot of street riding and gravel roads.

    I think so, got them too. Steel's best, lasts longest, and the Ironman rear's probably the lightest steel sprocket around.


    To all: as this may well be my last post for this year, our annual shutdown period coming up, a good silly season wished to all!

    Sundays ride was perfect XR650R terrain. Got to love what this bike will do.

    I'm running 12vdc off my stock stator, just need an ac to dc regulator/rectifier. :wink:

    You should be ok, most chargers (assuming thats what you are hooking up to) only draw about 2A anyway. I'm also assuming you dont have a bunch of other electronic goodies hooked up too because you are asking this question.

    To Larryboy's point, if you add a regulator you can, but that adds signficantly to the labor and hardware cost for such a limited ROI. I thought this was implicit in your original inquiry, but I guess not to everyone.

    While Sintax is right about the nominal draw, the stock stator is pumping out AC; your accessory is specifically asking for DC. So, it goes back to needing to ad the regulator. If I was going to go through this effort, I'd go the extra mile and do it right - by adding the stator/regulator etc.

    You are 100% correct about AC / DC. I always assume everyone on this site is running a dualsport kit which should have a full DC or at least a DC leg of their wiring harness.

    I don't so much care about lightweight or performance, I just want the strongest, longest lasting ones. When you look at those Ironman rears they don't even look that strong because they're cut down so much for weight savings. Are Ironman the strongest? I plan to put a lot of miles on my bike.
