Yeah those zrx (ZREX) are really strong dependable bikes, my buddy has one. I got to ride it a few times and the power it has is really impressive, for being soooo heavy.

Hmmmm. I see a common thread here.......

XR= Big red pig, handles well, plenty of power, dependable, lots of fun.:prof:

ZRX= Big green pig, handles well, plenty of power, dependable, lots of fun.:bonk:

Sploogemonkey's a happy camper. :confused:;)

Oh and by the way Thumpage, it's an 1100 ('99). The 1200s were made from '01 to '05.

Oh and no chicken strips, but that is why I had to get rid of it. It was not compatible with high life expectancy. :prof:

Hi Gang!

I thought I'd finally found a thread that my XR6, The Riot would fit. I dont think I got the meaning of the term PIG tho. :thumbsup: The Riot is a PIG of a different sorts obviously!:thumbsup:

Welcome Sneaky!:thumbsup:

Pig is short for BRP or Big Red Pig. It's just what we call the R and the L over here.

Here is my pig, just got it in January and never imagined it would look like this in April. Just got the 17's on and have tested her a bit....really nice on the road! Now just waiting for the Trail Tech to get here as right now I have no speedo, not that I need it LOL!!! Also a buddy of mine who does car interiors owed me a favor and did the seat on the stock pan. It is a much better foam and he molded it to make it more comfortable and it absolutely rocks!

Wow, didn't realize there was so much foam on the stock seat that it could be lowered by that amount.

Actually I should have been more specific, he replaced the foam with a high quality automotive foam that he uses doing interiors. It was far more dense than the stock foam and he simply forms it and creates whatever you want. The seat is so comfortable compared to stock.:thumbsup:

      My pig's about ten years old and has 12,000 miles on the clock. To my knowledge the shock's never been gone through. I assume it's due for some new oil and nitrogen by now? How much of a difference will I notice if I get it revalved while I'm at it? If I do get it revalved, should I try to do it myself, have a local shop do it, or send it to someone?

      Hey guys,
      I put a Mikuni TM40 on my XR600R and really like it, but I always wondered if the FCR might be better. I ran across this EBay listing for a new FCR style carburetor. It doesn't show as a Keihin brand. Anybody buy one of these yet? Its a good price but I won't buy if the quality isn't there. I bought another XR and thought I would try an FCR on the new bike so I have one of each.

      Any input?
