    Looks good to me! Doesn't matter how it looks as long as it does what you want it to. Mine ended up all black because the previous owner started painting all the plastics black and it just looked funny with the few white pieces left... I like it! Looks pretty nice all black (in my opinion) but it isn't as recognizable as an XR anymore.

    Mine next to a friend's...

    I noticed some weird 'clicking' in the handlebars as I was braking and turning. I could feel it and hear it. First I thought maybe I had eaten through a brake pad. As I was pulling the pads, I noticed a gap between the speedo gear and wheel hub, and the wheel could be shifted up and down on the axle. I figured it had to be the wheel bearing. Sho' nuff, the right side bearing had grenaded, taking the speedo gear along with it. It was an All-Balls sealed bearing less than a year old. I have been stuck in mud with the axles submerged twice in the past few months. Maybe that did it. The bearing on the left side was fine.

    I rode it last weekend on a motocross track for the first time in years. Perhaps that was too much for the old girl! (I know, not the right weapon for the job, but hey, you ride what you have.) Where are you guys finding the cheapest OEM parts these days?

    @ brown falcon. Black looks good with the silver frame. Not so sure with the white? Pretty sure mine is not getting painted anytime soon or ever.

    I think I will get one of those pieces for the left engine case for the shift lever to bash into after seeing JB weld at work on another post. :rofl
    I'm going to drop it.

    I might buy a front brake rotor for it. I'll ride it a bit more first. Little bit of a surge. Not horrible. Might just live with it.

    Looking into a seat mod. That less than $200 one. Probably will do that soon. Stock seat is pretty beat. Think I should stay with red?

    I want to up the generator output for my Gerbing. Maybe grip heaters. Going to change out the grips. Already have some of those $7 ones on hand. Same ones on my ST.

    Maybe a bash plate for the front of the motor.

    I have to give CT DMV money first thing Tuesday.

    Mine is a white frame. I have the Manracks case saver on mine. Bent a shifter a while back and gouged mine, but not enough to leak.

    My next rear that I'm gonna try is the Mefo Explorer. The Mefo Super Explorer is very similar to the K60 Scout. Both supposed to be great on street and gravel, decent on dirt, and get over 8k on the rear.

    I can't wait to see some of the new DI smoker offerings. The new DR says Honda of all companies has one in the offing.
