I thought this would be a good spot for people to post any of those little mods they did on their XR from day to day.

Maybe you added some bags (bagger!) or some LED indicators.

Maybe you washed the bike.

MayB you put some new tires on there.

Who know?

Just post up!

Oh, and we like pictures.

Before coming to work today, I rotate my hand controls about an inch forward, and readjusted the flipped mirrors.

Last saturday, I've moved the whole handlebar about a 1-1/2 inch forward too.

Simple mods, but they really change how the bike fells and reacts for me.

Hey Smitty,

Those little LEDs look like the kind I'm currently running. I got them off eBay for like $14 a pair, IIRC. Are those the ones you got, too?

Are they these?

About two weeks ago I changed my rear tire with a PR3. Loving it, because the bike turns much faster now...


Ordered a front PR2 that will be arriving at the end of this week.


Last night, I had I removed my Suricato (Brasilian Fueler, same kind of Patriot Top Fueler) to test my bike. It turned off 3 times in a sequence while I was riding it... very scary... the first time I was at about 4.5K rpm and "around" 98 miles/hr. The bike started slowing down and lost its power... At first I believed it was bad gasoline, but after 3 times, I decided to take the Suricato off. Just to test it... I believe it´s a bad connection thing, so I´ll run the whole week without it. Saturday I plan to check the instalation...


That was it.


Regards, Focchi.

Read the first lot of offsets from the baseman on the ThunderMax and wrote them back to the module as the new base settings. Getting to the stage where it can be opened up fully. Looking forward to it.

I'm gonna leave work early, go home, start it up and drive it to the tire shop for a new PR2 for the rear. My current is quite toast and might make the EPIC III journey, but I like to be sure.

Changed the RH Dip VRod headlamp for a LH Dip one, perhaps everyone will stop flashing me now. Tomorrow I will fire her up at 6.30 and ride to work just to see how many neighbours get pissed.
