Hey Joker, the exhaust system looks the goods. Where and how much??

Why not laminate your rego label and zip tie it to the upper fork leg?? It will tidy up the look of your front end a heap. :ride:

What is next on your wish list? A set of bar risers and fat bars would make a big difference to her.


Hey thanks heaps for the compliments, i got my inspiration from here

http://www.dirtbikew...ead.php?t=47529

The exhaust was about $650 off the eBay from the states but would be even cheaper now with the US Dollar, i better get some bars asap :banghead:

So you reckon some risers and fat bars will help a lot as currently i don't know what is actually on my bike, Renthal something? Not stock so its hard to compare what i will gain. But it should be a bit.

As for the rego label i might not have to do anything as i think soon the SA Gov wants to get rid of em to save money, so well see.

Thanks
Matt.

Jokerflingo, I use Rox Risers. These are really adjustable and really lift the bars up and forward from the top triple. You can get em for 7/8 bars or fat bars. I had to lengthen the clutch and decomp cables by 75mm though.


Cheers

Interesting setup that, thanks for sharing but i dont believe i would want that much rise as they looks like a huge difference and would look and feel weird when riding sitting down i would think. Also dont really rate the toughness of it by looking at it.

Nice bike though :ride:

Hahaha, Yeah they are pretty high for an XR. But the XR clamps are so low and back its ridiculous!!! If you compare to modern bikes its not radical at all.
I couldnt comfortably ride the XR with the standard set up whilst standing.

Joker, Im 6'1 and with the risers and 'jimmy button' renthal bars it has made the BRP much better when standing. When sitting I dont even notice the risers. The 'toughness' of the risers hasnt been tested with a big off yet. But to me they look very strong and sturdy in person, time will tell I guess.:ride:

looks great not knocking it might want to watch them on a get off looks as if they will twist some when the bars hit the ground and if they gouge the aluminum bars at the mounting point could hurt the integrity of the material:thumbsup:

Nice setup. Good to see one in use. I was looking into this for my 600. I hear you on the low and far back stock clamps comment. Makes no sense. Thanks for the pics.

What MOD did you do to the carb??? I have the same exhuast on mine and get a vicious backfire from time to time... I thought the jetting was good but I loose power on the top end. I love the 450 exhuast on there... besides the fact it looks Honda factory it sounds halfway descent. Just gotta get rid of that backfire... Can you take a close-up of your mid-pipe/header attachment...

When is it backfiring? On deceleration? If so you need a richer pilot jet.
