Hi, I'm late 30's dad whos looking to get back to desert riding with my young kids and I haven't had my own bike or barely ridden in 15 years. As title says I'm a big guy(6'5" lil outta shape but working my way down in lbs) and I want a fun reliable bike I can throw into my truck and ride around the S.California deserts (El Mirage, Ocotillo, etc.) I have zero interest in street riding so I hadn't even looked at the XR650's and have been focusing my search on WR450's & CRF450X's only but after watching a video or 2 about the XR and seeing only a few but better priced options then the other 2 choices I'm wondering if the XR isn't exactly what I want. I've read some riders don't like how tall it is and heavy, and it isn't the poppiest motor for a 650, but since I'm so tall n heavy and just looking to have reasonable desert fun what are your thoughts? Also read alil about people removing and minorish mods done to the XR to make it lighter and uncork it more. Anyone have experience stripping away street stuff and only leaving it Ca. desert legal? Thanx in advance for your opinions, I'm looking to spend @ $1500-4000 on the bike I chose, hoping to keep it as cheap as reliable /fun allows
Hey Guys and gals, I am having an issue setting up my lights and I am not sure what I'm missing. I have a 2001 Honda XR650R that was "made" street legal by the previous owner. I'm trying to add in front blinkers and when I hook up my front blinkers all the lights dim and the front don't flash or even power up. I am lost as to what I am doing wrong or if the battery pack I'm using does not produce enough amps to run the system. I will link the parts I'm using below and a diagram of how I'm attempting to wire it. Any Ideas or help would be much appreciated. Not sure on the Amp draw or limit on the items been digging just no luck as to what is being used or produced as of yet (blew my amp fuse in my meter being a dummy). http://a.co/7MFeePA Hand Switch http://a.co/9F5rcRT The Front Blinkers (shown to use 5.4w on 12v so I think about .5A) http://a.co/gQ1OTf7 Brake and blinker combo (25w so about 2.1A) http://a.co/2JRKUTj Horn (shown to use 1.5A) http://a.co/1i6wwGk Battery it produces 12v 15A output http://a.co/8Z1Z8iv How I get the power off battery cut in half and bullet crimped http://a.co/aXkrtgB Flasher relay (max 42W adjustable to .02A to 12A) http://a.co/8Z07FbJ Other flasher relay thinking other was the issue not the case Thanks, J
