The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Re: XR650L OWNERS SIGN IN

Not exactly as the title states, but pretty close with an XR400 and XR600 here.

FYI, I have boxes of xr parts. Front wheel, spare xr600 engine, frame, gas tanks, petcocks, brakes, swingarm, forks, handlebars, you name it I likely have it for the xr6 or xr400. All for sale - just pm me.

Here's a shot of the xr600. I still need to get the handlebars sorted out. I want ones that are a bit taller and wider. The pic is a bit dated as I've added a rear MX fender and Baja Designs LED taillight. The 200W stator made a big difference too!

Re: XR650L OWNERS SIGN IN

Th seat is a Corbin, came with the bike. The tubes are from www.agrisupply.com, sold as manual holders for farm machinery. They work great for tools, $4.99 each.

Hi HANCOCK, I'm also running Avon Distanzas (on 17" Excel Supermoto wheels). The 2nd and 4th pics are the stock DS tires and wheels.
The pipe is a Pro Circuit T-4 spark arrestor with stock headers. The engine is de-smogged and uncorked with a Dynojet high performance carb kit.
Yes, that pic was taken on West Beach not 3mi from San Luis Pass. It was beautiful, the beach was so clean that day I couldn't even find a piece of trash to put under the stand. I had about 10 seconds to jump off, snap the pic and get back to the bike before it fell over in the sand!

Re: XR650L OWNERS SIGN IN

Fayette County is about 1/2 way between Austin and Houston(God's Country!!). La Grange is the county seat.

Send me a private message and I'll give you a hand posting pics.

Re: XR650L OWNERS SIGN IN

Interesting story about the Cyclerack, I had heard very good reviews about it on the TW200 forum so I called Don and asked him about his rack for an XR400R. He didn't have a pic of one installed on an XR400 so I was kinda reluctant. So, this is what he told me, "I'll send you the rack, you install it. If you like it, send me a check. If you don't, send it back no questions asked". But there was a catch. If I decided to keep it, he asked "Would you please send me a picture of it installed?" Needless to say, if you go to the Cyclerack website and click XR250/XR400, you'll see a pic of my XR440!!!
But it doesn't end there. I was so impressed with the rack I decided to buy another one for the 650L. Again, he didn't have a pic so..... You guessed it, that's my 650L in the pic as well!
Look, I have no affiliation with Cycleracks whatsoever and I'm not sitting here blowin' smoke. If you want a tough rack, get a Cyclerack!! It aint made for lightweight, it aint billet aluminum, but it's tough!!!! I had to haul 150lbs of feed once(3 bags, not recomended) on the 440, no prob!

Here's a pic of my 440...



The 650's been known to carry a few odds and ends as well.........
