Reincarnation of a XRL-as a tard

Recommended Posts

I am always amazed at the number of people that haven't seen Supermoto.

On a tight twisty road, nothing beats a supermoto.

This is my XRL done up for SM. I can go faster on it than any sportbike I have riden.

I saw an organized go gart race last month in the parking lot at the Miami Speedway. I am gonna try to get in there to see how it does in the curves. :busted:

I still dig your bike man. :ride: I love those shrouds-I just wish the tank was larger cause I'm too lazy to fill up that often. :banana:

Hey, looks good.

Question: what type of forks and clamps are they, and how did you swap them?

BP

Brtp4,

The USD forks are Marzoochi Shivers and the clamps are from applied or allied or sonthing like that. Both from ebay-pretty cheap. :ride: I need to get back on ebay now and sell all my takeoff parts before the wifey sees the credit card bill! :busted:

You will need to make a sleeve that will allow the smaller XR650L tree stem to be press fitted into the larger CRF 450 lower clamp. Then make a sleeve that will fill the gap between the top clamp and the smaller XRL stem. :banana:

Mods include: Excels on Talons 3.50/4.50, Avon Distanzias 120/150, dynabead balanced, USD Marzoochi Shivers with CR 250 front axel, 14x48 gearing with gold x-ring, marzoochi USDs with applied trees, smaller crf 230 battery and electrical relocated to airbox, Clarke 4.7 tank, acerbis bark busters and front fender, trailtech racelight with desert lens and 130/90 watt halogen, ceet stepped seat and gripper cover, cemoto mx rear fender with baja designs led strobe tail light, LED blinkers, renthal CR high bend bars with barsnake, fmf ceramic stainless powercore 4 and power bomb header, edelbrock pumper with sock filter, stage one cam, braided stainless brake lines front and rear, braking 320 up front with white bros oversize rotor and caliper relocation bracket in rear, IMS Pro pegs and BD Skidplate.

I love that headlight.

http://www.trailtech.net/racelight.htm

Is it street legal at 130/90W? I was told that anything above 55w was not DOT legal. Does it take any H-4 bulb? If so, I have seen some 100/55W that could get a person around that.

My Death ray does use an H4 bulb. The trailtech unit uses an H1 single element at 55 watts.

No, my light lense and reflector combination is not DOT approved, nor is the use of any bulb over 55 watts.

The low beam does have a very crisp cut off line so it only shines directly in front of the bike, and does not offend oncoming traffic.

Now the high beam (Death Ray) thats a different story. I use it regularly as a weapon when necessary. Mostly during and after near misses from cell phone talking soccer moms and those folks that like to pretend they didn't see us and pull out in front of us. :banana:

I know this probably makes me a bad person, but I can live with that. I would rather be an alive bad person-than a dead caring person. :ride:

Hey, on the speedo front, I've been using a Garmin Foretrex 101 strapped to a bit of foam to the crossbar on my Pig.

The 101 is inexpensive for a GPS, gives you speed, ET, mileage and lots of trip info, like time moving.

Runs on a couple AA's, and runs all day on that. No wires, squat.

Treadmarks, did you put a divider between the battery and air filter to isolate the electricals. I am very interested in this mod but was wondering how your relocation was working. I am sure it makes the bike look a lot better with this change!thanks. :ride:

Hi FS,

I put a sock filter on the carb, and used a smaller crf230 battery and dumped everything in the air box.
