    I think the best way would be to get 3mm planed off the sprocket side of the wheel - probably do-able. if they don't sell I might take it in and see what the engineers can do.

    damn that is big

    should get decent range out of that. my aftermarket tank is only 16 l and good for less then 200k. better then the original 10 lite tho

    is that a vapour speedo fitted? is it wired up as rev counter and to the radiator for the water temp etc? would you recommend it - i was thinking of getting one but i think i would have to let the experts fit it

    Thought I'd chime in after reading this thread for while. Got me an Xr 650R about 7 months back, after two years riding my old Xr 500 over here in France. The riding here is mostly rocky trails in woods with abit of fast country lanes. It can get abit tight at times. The 650 is like a tractor!! Put a new tire on it after riding all winter slipping all over the place and wow!! what a difference. Infact the beast gets me out of more trouble then it gets me into. A bit of a step in the trail or a bit of a dip with a flick of the throttle and its all behind you. Good fun the big bores. Hoping maybe soon to get some rims with road tyres give give it bash on the road. Dunno yet.
    Heres a pic

    I would reccommend the vapour unit, I fitted one to a Ktm once. Just send me a PM if you need a hand to fit it. Gives the bike a nice mondern look as well as displaying alot more info.

    Damn, nice chunk of plastic! I think the best way would be to make up some sort of rack to mount it over the front wheel? Infact put some straps on it and wear it like a backpack?
    There are two kinds of adventurers: those who go truly hoping to find adventure and those who go secretly hoping they won't. We should come home from our adventures having faced their perils and uncertainties, endured their discomfort and beaten the odds, with a sly acknowledgment and revitalised solidarity of character.

    Yep, fully wired.
    They are magic, full of features.
    Totally recommended.

    My bike too loud, says WOF

    Have any one else had problems with wof? Last year everything was OK, but now they have some new rules and my XR was way too loud.

    Muffler end is uncorked and I'm trying to get the "corked" pipe end from Honda. If any one have one of these parts lying around, I would be more than happy to borrow one for the WOF...

    Is it just this one wof-station or are they all as strict as this one?

    Rules were ammended in June 08

    Basicaly anthing over 125 cc must come in at under 97 dba
    For a single cylinder four stroke this test is carried out at 3000 RPM

    Most testing stations and Motorcycle dealers are now enforcing this rule.
    Here for a good time, not necessarily a long time

    OK, have to get bike under 97dB some how.

    Is there anywhere info how the noise measurement should be done? Wof-guy was holding the sound meter about 40 cm from the pipe, usually I have seen measurements taken from 1 meter.

    It might be difficult to get bike quiet enough even with original pipe end...maybe I have to buy pipe like one below!

    depends where you go for the wof some places are stricter then others. i never had any trouble with getting a wof for my harley with drag pipes. the same place also gives my uncorked xr wof as well

    now it will be on the computer that you failed the noise test so you cant really get somewhere else to pass it so easily. maybe ask on the main forum for some suggestions?

    i would take it to another shop and ask if they would pass it being that loud. if so pay for another wof and get it done there
