My name is Peter and I recently committed to buying an 09' XR.
I am the member of several motorcycle forums and am familiar with the general rules of conduct etc...
I have not owned a modern bike in 10 years of riding. I started with rebuilding older bikes and never stopped, my main rides are a 70' Commando and a 72' XLCH.
Here are the modifications done to the bike V&H 2-1-2 Exhaust, Fuel Pak
K&N air cleaner
Some carbon fiber bits
Barnett racing clutch
Supposedly rebuilt 6 years ago, some black powder coated engine pieces, new gaskets, cylinders, pistons etc...
Heads ported, polished.
Making - 90hp,76lb/ft
Things I know I need, suggestions/advice?:
Looking at Pilot 4s as potential new tires
Needs better front directionals and mirrors (I've seen combos here on the forum I may go for)
Id like to sort out some kind of fairing/windscreen, Ive done 8 hr days in the wind on my commando and it is exhausting.
Open to hearing anything anyone wants to say.
Yes, yes I know.. people want pictures. I have a few but am waiting until I have the bike in my possession to post quality ones, on that point I may be persuaded otherwise.
Thanks for reading.
