Had the XR out to stretch her legs over the long weekend. I did two day 600km "off road" loop with some friends from the local dualsport forum

Did a few mods to the 6honey.

Since acerbis wants $110 for reinforced hand guards and cycra wants $95 I got $40 msr bare guards and $15 cycra replacement and mounted em up by drilling and tapping a couple m5x.80 holes great fit and WAAAAY cheaper

Also added a fmf powercore4 the other day and soon to be a powerbomb header. Also threw on a 45t Renthal to make it a bit more highway comfy.

Also I learned since I like my wheelbase shorter for the trails, I usually cut my chains to make it so it's perfectly adjusted at #3 on the snails. By doing this you can swap a smaller sprocket and not have to swap chains! I have a 48t Renthal twinning for trail and single track and this 45t for cruising streets or long rides. That with a 15t front makes it very comfortable at higher speeds.

I have a Motoz tractionator h/t up front and a maxis desert IT in the rear. I'm not throttle happy at all on the street but they do very well on the twistes heading up to big bear and handle well on the highway too. Dirt they are amazing. The maxis has a very thick carcass so it's very puncture resistant and the Motoz has never slid on me even blasting hard pack with sand on top. Even though the Maxxis is not DOT rated, it's one of the most reliable and predictable knobby I've ever ridden. And they hold up great. The tractionator has given me about 3500 miles so far and still good tread and the desert IT has only about 800 miles on it with lots of slab and it's wearing like iron. I've been using this tire combo for the past year and only changed tires once. Also I am a daily rider as I use my pig for commuting and running around town. Edited by RylerTust

Awesome! Just get your own hardware and a tap and the right drill bit cause the hardware that comes with the hand guards is junky. I only used the washers. I used a M5x.80 tap and an 11/64ths bit I think.

One pic before getting loaded up for a weekend in the Mendocino National Forest! Not much new other than a nice new clean seat off ebay and a new fender bag. Although I've told myself this before, this is the LAST ride before the teardown to do the Crank and new sleeve and 100mm piston. Last Ride I swear. :)

      I have quite a few things I need to thin out of my shop. Prices are for items only. Shipping extra. Please Pay attention to my shipping policy:

      I ship twice per month. When you inquire about an item, I will tell you when the next ship date is. It takes a couple of hours out of my day to get things to the shipping outlet so I will ship as many items as possible at once. If you don't like this, don't buy my items or be willing to pay extra for special accommodations. I will be as reasonable as possible.

      I will combine/box multiple items to save you as much as possible on shipping. Prices are OBO, but I am not going to take the time to box something up for nearly nothing. I have a very demanding work load this fall.

      It will take me a few days to have pictures up on all this stuff.

      so today I was going to go out for a ride, almost got to my buddies house, when the bike died, thought it was maybe out of gas, so i pulled in the clutch and went on reserve. I was still rolling so i popped it up into 3rd to try to roll start it, but no luck. stopped and pulled of to the side to try and kick it. the engine was siezed. this had happened before once and it ran fine after i let it cool down. so i let it sit and got a cup of coffee. i came back out to start her up, but i couldnt find tdc. the kick start would turn and turn but no hard point. it was harder to kick through the cycles and it has a weird squeek sound from the cylinder. any ideas on what happened or what the problem is??? it was running just fine 2 weeks ago i took it out on a 6 hr ride no overheating nothing. i has just been out of service because i cracked the tank in a biff about 3 rides ago.

      Hi all, long time stalker first time poster.
      Had my xr600r a few years now brought it with everything done lucky. 
      Anyway it has sat in the shed for 3 or so years regoed and ready to 
      Roll just to lazy to get my Lience. Now have it and I'm riding it to work 
      Everyday saving ks on the car doing about 200 250 km a week, 
      Loving the bike hasn't missed a beat but doing 80% of that 
      Highway I want to set up for 100% road. 
      I have picked up a set of cbr600 rims done some maching on them
      Got them to start fitting and taking shape but gave up on the idea
      Now I have my Lience it's back on. 
       
      Has anyone on here done it? how much work is realy involved? Is the
      Juice worth the squeeze?? Ect ect. Send in your pics cbr rims or not
      show me your rigs!!  I will have plenty more questions to ask you all that have
       Cheers.
