    Heated jacket, yes.
    Heated grips, yes.
    Heated jacket, and heated grips, both at full power, NO.
    Heated jacket, and heated grips, both on partial power, Maybe. This will depend on what kind of heat controllers you have.

    No,,,, not if both are run on "high". I have can either run my grips on high or my vest {and the vest uses less current than a jacket}. If your grips use a resister to control heat, it's basically on "high" all the time so you will have to run the jacket on low reguardless of where the grips are run.

    I'm currently rebuilding my L and just upgraded to a 260watt stator. I'm about to plug in my heated grips and a plug for my jacket aswell (in addition to my HID projector lights). I'll let you know how it goes if you're not in a hurry.

    If you do decide to go ahead and plug things in I'd invest in a small voltmeter through ebay (got mine for $5-$10 calibrated with papers and all) that you can attach to your dash to keep an eye on things while you run your gear.

    You can find the upgrade stator here http://www.procycle.us/bikepages/xr650l.html#electrical

    I'm using honda 10 40. Is it normal to burn a bit of oil? I was about full. Did about 250 miles now I'm roughly 3/4 a quart low. It's not leaking any where or coming out the exhaust. Bike is just under 4k miles on it

    I think thats normal, Kinda. I run the same oil and mine burns about the same amount and I havent seen any leaks or off colors exhaust smoke. How often do you change your oil and have you checked to see if the color of the oil is too dark when you do?

    Please Help! XR650L

    I've been out of town for some time, I get back hoping to ride. My son tells me me bike fell over on the left side not sure how long it was down. He tried to start it and it would not fire but did turn over.
    When I got home I tried and the bike fired up rode for a few miles and it cut off. I changed the plug and cleaned out the carb.
    Bike fired up and ran shut it off and went back today to ride and bike would not fire all it will do is turn over.
    Any help in trying diagnose the problem so I may ride before I go back out of town would be helpful.

    Got spark??

    Got gas??

    If the bike was on it's side for some time and the petcock was turned on you very well may be out of gas.
