    Fab looking bike in white.
    Maybe a dumb question but where did you get the white sidecovers and rear fender?

    Right? I don’t see much difference except the BD one has a black plug instead of white. I ordered one so I can compare and see how it compares.

    I’ve got a switch that looks just like that - works ok - not really a high quality switch but probably as good as the Baja designs switch - surf for a better price - maybe check eBay - you can buy the same a lot cheaper - A better option would be a Used OEM switch from another bike

    I had just bought a new in dealer 2018 Xr650l a few months ago. Studied and ordered alot of parts. Only 400 miles. 3 weeks ago I was browsing Craigslist and saw a 2000 Xr650r with 680cc kit for $2000.00. I headed over and purchased. Rode it home. Ordered new plastics, seat cover, getting rear shock rebuilt, ordered 2 wheels from Warp9. New tires, bars, risers, all of the correct carb parts. Filters, controls, new clutch and stator cover from Bobbitt, chain and sprockets. Bike plug was black and sooty. Giving the bike a new breath of life and hoping for the best.

    Just got licensed in WA st. Waiting for wheels. Side cases, some pilot and main jets and the shock. I guess I'll scrub the bike down some more. Paint a few parts while waiting.
    Bike has a 175 main jet, I replaced the little small rubber air valve, air filter is being replaced. Ill adjust the valves also. Hoping that cures the overly rich looking plug. Looks like I have some time now that snow has hit early in spokane. 20201024_075328.jpg

    I was suprised you can get all new Honda plastic. I went ahead and did that considering the bike is 20 years old.

    Good news re parts availability, can I ask were the replacement plastics OEM or aftermarket and who currently stocks them in?
    Many thanks,

    Question for the collective.

    I'm trying to find out if Unabiker rad guards will be close to fitting with this Fluidyne rad and TrailTech fan kit combo.
    Mods to clear the fan kit are no big deal if necessary but it is the rad clearance that is my primary concern.
    As far as I know, this is not an oversize rad. Left side rad is stock OE btw and just slightly smaller.

    Has anybody had this combo and can comment?

    Much thanks in advance.

    And yes, I had the big Acerbis tank on but am downsizing to a slimmer tank so will be removing the Hodakaguy tank brace if it interferes (likely) with the rad guards.

    This is the kit below I was planning on ordering.
    I did send them an email but thought I would reach out for any inmate's personal experience.

    Finally went to ride the XRR after 2 weeks (unrelated ankle injury) on a company camping trip and SOB none of the lights worked.
    I only know of two fuses and they are good, the battery was at 13.55 none of the wires were damaged as far as I could tell.
    Where should I start looking?

    Did you ground the lights back to the battery?

    With limited tools i was unable to dig into the problem but the lights and everything else had been working correctly since I bought the XRR.

    After some time digging into the electrical system, my lack of lighting was due to the key cylinder getting all nastied up inside. Temporarily fixed.
    But I created another small problem... now the key doesn't shut the bike down anymore lol.
    But I'll look into this soon.
