You could also put a HRC sticker on it like one of these, but the NOS would be interesting
It may look funky, but so does my Guts Tall Soft Seat/Foam. I've got to get a fender pack to help her out cause she looks funky with the taller seat, but I'm getting the taller seat for the longer rides. I'm hoping it will help my knees / legs with transitioning from sitting to standing.
At least you'll have the magic button

LMAO, great idea.
Get yourself a NOS (Nitrous Oxide Systems) sticker and put it on the starter can .

Now that is one original idea. I can disguise the battery lead as a gas line. Put a sign on the back fender: BACK OFF - FLAMES WITHOUT WARNING

As long as the e-start kit is as reliable as the XR itself, I might just enty up and get one myself.
Please let me know how it works out.

The US Marine Corps run converted diesel Kawasaki 650's, and a guy entered a turbo charged XR650R in the Dakar.
As soon as gas hits $4.50 a gallon i am all over it...(that would be late August?)
