Re: HONDA XR650L OWNER'S SIGN IN

Figure Iíll change the picture back to fit the thread. Hereís my Ď14 xrl which came with lotsa goodies in a box. So far I changed oil to synthetic, trimmed down ( and went led )the rear brake light/plate holder. Put smaller blinkers front and back, led headlight, 4gal tank, skid plate, pro taper handle bar, and an Acerbis front fender (maybe not a good idea). Next plan is to upgrade the front sprocket and hand guards .

Any opinion on direct fit hand guards or other upgrades is appreciated. Also it has a k&n air filter but I hear the foam may be better ?

ASPR will be tuning the carb so thatís coming soon

Gotta get muddy to test the fender. Any hard guards that have the bark buster metal guard will be good. Help save your levers! How's the headlight in the dark? 1681 has lotsa deer.

Re: HONDA XR650L OWNER'S SIGN IN

I use bark busters on mine, i love the look of them and they're fairly functional in the winter when you need some wind deflection too.

How do you like the 4 gallon tank? I want one, but I don't want to mess up my wheelies with the weight.

50 years old and talking about wheelies... there's something wrong with that huh? LOL!

Re: HONDA XR650L OWNER'S SIGN IN

So far I like the 4gal tank. I didnít want to put too much weight up high with a bigger tank but felt I needed more range. Iím 51 and pushing it home would ruin the cool factor. I can still get the front end off the ground pretty easy, maybe the big plastic tank vs. the small metal tank evens out

Just saw those JNS headlights today, any good? Read something about having to remove the adjusters?

Re: HONDA XR650L OWNER'S SIGN IN

Well they're ultra bright, and they are hard to aim, you just about have to do it on a dark night with no moon and shine them into a solid wall or woodline to get them straight, but they are so far ahead of the stock light that they're like aircraft landing lights in comparison. Low beams are wide angle and bright too. Cant really see the running light, cuz you run the lowbeams all the time anyway so it blends in.

I'll take difficult to adjust if it's bright

Re: HONDA XR650L OWNER'S SIGN IN

Bike is stripped. Headed to see bigman in the morning.
Counter shaft is pretty far got. The fitzco I got from mitch will buy me some time, but it looks like I'll be splitting the cases eventually. Plan on doing 2nd and 5th mod and new piston at the same time.

I sure hope so. Going to come back down next Saturday and throw her together. Then haul her home and wait for the odds and ends I need to have shipped.
