    D.O.T Tires for my '06 650L

    Is the Scorpion Pro DOT? I noticed that the Perelli M21 came in the right size for the front, but not the back.

    D.O.T Tires for my '06 650L

    I looked and looked through the results of a forum search, and couldn't dig up the an answer to my question. I bought an '06 XR650L:ride: with 724 miles on it. It drives great on the road, but on trails, I need help. I need some tires that can handle this slippery clay, and soft shifting sand better than the stock on/off tires that came on it. I'm looking for the hardest rubber, with the most aggressive nobbies that are DOT legal. I live in central NC. I run a lot of errands with it, but also was to have some fun on the weekends. With these stock tires, I do too much tip-toeing around. Any ideas?
  3. Does anyone know how to pull the clutch release mechanism out of the case? I have the Clymers manual, and all it says is to remove the cable, then "Remove the release mechanism lever assembly (B, Figure 67) from the crankcase, together with its spring and washer." It doesn't just "remove", it is held in there somehow. The reason I am sweating this is that the cable I ordered from Yamaha seems like it is about 3/4" too long. The lever return spring may have lost a lot of its former tension and I want to check the lever for damage/wear. Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I searched the forums and didn't find anything. Thanks, Brian.
