The Red is cool lookin, dosn't look as crappy as black does once scratched AND...Red is more visable and might save your life from another driver!

probably going to stick with red as i'm trying to keep costs down and yeah i didnt mind the decals but they had gone all brittle and cracked, and the glue was starting to let go all over so not much holding them on. hate the yellow fork covers, thinking of getting a set of those neoprene shock socks things.

I think those neoprene deals trap debris. I used em on my 02 KTM and it made no difference in seal life. I think they look stupid too..LOL I like the yellow boots with those yellow pin stripped stickers.

Back in late May, I showed a photo of my 1983 XL600R when new in post # 2843:

http://www.thumperta...st__p__10072180

I bought it new in October 1983 at Barber Honda in Ventura, CA. I rode it through the end of 1989 and parked it with 8,000 miles on it and let the registration and insurance lapse. I decided to freshen it up in 2000, but only got a little bit of work done and set the project aside. I decided this last April that I would do my own wrenching and get ready(parts and tools) for a 24,000 mile service on my 2000 BMW R1150GS and to get this Honda back in service. Since then, I've been going through the bike an hour or two in the evenings and longer sessions on weekends and finished it Friday, then lined up insurance, got an inspection, and got an new title and registration. The bike started literally on the first kick and runs great. I've run about 125 miles on it since Friday and will probably be out on it again tomorrow.

Here is is now:

wentz, they're bt-45's 90/90-21 and 130/80-17... according to bridgestone these are the biggest tires that will correctly fit my 1.85 and 2.5 rims (euro NX650).

Are the euro wheels wider than a standard XR650L? Can't seem to find a spec stamped on my stockers...
