    what kind of trip computer are there?

    http://www.trailtech.net/store/index.html I just ordered a Vapor for my KLX250S. It's about $125.00 shipped.

    Trying to decide what bike.

    I found my KLX 250S to be way more fun on the street then a uncorked 2006 XR650L and even my 2005 Superhawk. It does the freeway thing fine and is in fact better then my XR because it is not blown around as much. The wings on the XR would really get some lift. I was going to get a DRZ-400 SM but this one fell into my lap. I have it re-jetted/desmoged and it runs perfect. I really doubt and 400 Suzuki runs as smooth as this 250. You do gain a few nice things with the Kawasaki. Better gas mileage/ Cheaper insurance/ Smoother running unit/ Lighter weight/ better looks, in my mind anyway. I did change the bars to aluminum(Pro Grip714 Dual Sport Grip)/ and have DRZ-400 peg inserts to help finish off any peg vibes still there. This is fun bike and maybe getting all the 20+ horsepower to the ground is what it is about anyway?? It is for me. I lowered it too. PS- the seat is really good to me and I know the Suzuki will need a upgrade in that area.

    650 L Oil Consumption

    Even if you don't ride it and rev it a little, (level) the oil will come up on the stick. That is on a oil/filter change. Then it will stay at the right level for checking. Mine did that from the first oil change. I tock my in for the 600 mile servuice and they overfilled it. Luckly I had practice, so I checked and corrected it right away.

    XR650L Owners

    At 65 it is almost lugging with the stock gearing. Bump it up to 68 and it really smooths out.

    Non Football Fan

    Terry Bradshaw, after living a full life, died. When he got to heaven, God was showing him around. They came to a modest little house with a faded Steelers flag in the window. "This house is yours for all eternity, Terry." said God. "This is very special; not everyone gets his/her own house up here." Bradshaw felt special, indeed, and walked toward his house. On his way up to the porch, he noticed another house just around the corner. It was a three-story mansion with a blue-and-white sidewalk, a 50-foot flag pole with an enormous SEAHAWKS 12th MAN flag, and in every window a Blue Towel. Bradshaw turned to God and said, "God, I'm not trying to be ungrateful, but I have a question. I was an all-pro quarterback. I hold many NFL records. I even was elected to the Football Hall of Fame." God said, "So what's your point, Bradshaw?" "Well, why does Matt Hasselbeck get a better house than me?" God chuckled and said, "Terry, that's not Matt's house. It's mine."

    That's because they get their clock cleaned by all the Husky and KTM bikes. At least when you by a L you are not trying to fool anyone. Most L riders just want a simple bike that works fine and is reliable. Let face it, none of these singles are all that fast if you compared it to a 600 super sport. I am really happy with my re-jetted L. I like to compare my setup to a KLR-650 because I almost bought that instead. I just prefered Honda's quality overall. I also wanted the simple air-cooled unit. That is a big plus to me. http://www.pixentral.com/show.php?picture=1gzY7sqUIuCsGG0qqvxbCHOQbzt0XP http://www.pixentral.com/show.php?picture=1dcKUFABatBzDbwEv0ualca3bEHbAc

  10. I happen to really like my L for the street. I changed the bars (aluminum and filled) Gel grips Modifed the pegs Got rid of the strap on the seat. Rejeted It's way smoother then stock and does not put your hands or feet to sleep. The seat could use work but I hate the look of a cobin on that bike. I might break down and get one when nobodys looking. I looked really hard a KLR 650 because it was setup better for the street. I am glad I went with the Honda's 12 year old design Because it is proven itself solid. I did not care for the extra bull of watercooling either. Simple simple simple is where it's at for me.I like watercooling in my boat motors!! http://www.pixentral.com/show.php?picture=1snL6L2GMou8POc89qqg8BixMWd6yb1 http://www.pixentral.com/show.php?picture=1rWUbb4wDR0DqnhbYrghDv88Er3j1

    XR650L- Best Bike in the world-

    I thought that was "paper air plain"

    Babies Got a New Pair of Shoes

    I have a 2006 that I ride on the street mostly and those tires are in the running for what I want on a XRL. Have you hit the brakes hard??? I will only really be doing fire roads and things like that, as far as dirt. It's my fishing bike in the Oregon outback.

    Cold weather start - XR650L

    Mine has been rejetted and it can still be hard to start. That's if it sits for a while (2 weeks outside). I found if I do not full choke it right at first, it will fire up pretty easy. I can full choke for a second if if did not fire right away. It a matter of finding the right combo. I think I found mine. It's a 2006 with about 1200 miles on it. About time for Honda semi-synthetic oil. Off to another subject for a second. Which Clark tank size do you guys prefer? 4.0, 4.6 or some other size or brand. I found out Clark is local, so I would prefer them. http://tinyurl.com/dlw2l

    I wonder what section the flattrack guys are fast in? Seems right up their alley.

    Maier vs. OEM

    They have three different fenders, what is the difference between them? I would like to use one on my XRL 650 but I am not sure which to order??
