I just put the Tusk lighting kit on my '85 600r. It works great, and I hear the lights are brighter that the Baja Designs kit. All for a fraction of the price. Check out rockymountainatv.com

Because of the leaky valve stem seals. The factory ones were hard as a rock and did not seal very well. A simple $11 part makes a nice looking bike smoke like a POS. Since I pulled the head to replace the seals it was a good time to take a look at everything along the way. A simple hone, new JE piston & rings, valve stem seals (Viton) and a head gasket and I should not have to touch it for a LONG time.

By the position of yours i reckon you would, i believe some people can get away with it when talking about the 650R as it has much more of a lean by the looks of it when on the stand compared to yours :smirk:

Got it from the dirtbikeshop near my house it's called gnarly parts. It was really easy to install there is only four clamps holding it on and I wired it to the high beam existing wires.

Cool, I hope it works well for you. Here's a picture of what I did with the kit. I had to modify the taillight fender thing quite a bit to make it work, and ended up putting it on top of the fender instead of under it. That way the light isn't pointed down. I think it turned out pretty good.

As you can see, my Pig is named Jane. My wife said "I guess the honeymoon is over. I'm stuck in the house and you've got Jane in the garage!"

FYI , i put crf 450 foot pegs on my xl600r, just took some drilling, grinding, and modification to the springs (used the 600 springs). aside from the 2 drill bits i broke, it was free!
