    XR650L Tires

    Heidenau Scouts. Went front and back and just finished San Diego to Cabo San Lucas and back. They worked great on 90% on-road and didn't have any problem in the admittedly pretty tame off-road. They definitely had some stopping power (Baja has some interesting wildlife wandering the roads). The only bitch about them is they have stiff sidewalls so they take a little work to install. With 2700 miles, they are better than 70% still (sorry I didn't measure the tread depth). Don't remember what they cost but 20 bucks doesn't matter over the life span.

    Seems to be too much oil in sight glass?

    Hey the owners manual says to run the bike then let it sit 3? minutes before using sight glass......with the oil equalization stuff it takes a minute to situate correctly.

    Harder than when it's cold? Mine doesn't change from cold to hot.

    06 Stock gearing

    I ride mountains and technical desert (rocky crap) so I went to a 12 front from the 13. Gives me 12/48 combo for a 1 to 4 ratio. I like the ratio because I rarely get much speed and can use the low gear to pop over rocks and trees. HOWEVER, I have heard that the chain (o-ring stock) has trouble going around such a small sprocket. I am not sure if I am experiencing that but I am thinking of going to a 13/53 and seeing what happens. I don't ride tracks so I dont know what to tell you for that. Wheelies are a snap if you have hotties around too.... j
