jws,
Where did you get that mirror, and who made it? I have an acerbis, and it moves around so much and the stalk is so small it is worthless.



Get the Ken Sean folding mirrors from the TT Store. They are about $13 each and are reversable for either left or right hand. :thumbsup:

[quote name='2000 xr650r']00 650r with baja designs. uncorked. Just mounted some Maxxis M6006 50/50 tires. They seem to be good on road and not bad off road either. Not sure about wear yet.

What size (front/rear) Maxxis M6006 did you get? I want to get a set but the sizes available don't match stock.

Uncork is a must for easy starting and preventing overheating. About $50 worth of parts (provided you drill stock exhaust). I didn't notice a lot more power, but it starts in 1-2 kicks and doesn't overheat.

Hi they didnt match the stock size but fit fine. They are a rounded tire so they look very small on the bike. I got the 90/90-21 front and 120/80-18 Rear. I would highly recomend going with the 130/80-18 rear however i wish i did. They are cheap. $108 shipped form www.denniskirk.com but if you go with the 10mm wider rear, you will add $14. Worth it!! Glad to help. BTW since you will have slightly diffrent tires, get new tubes that match the new tires.

Just curious, how come you don't like the 120/80 rear?

Cool! When you get them on the bike can you post some pics of the tread design (the Maxxis web shots aren't very good). Also, a ride report (on- and off-road) would be appreciated.

Ride safe.

Overall i love the maxxis M6006. The reason i wish i went to a 130 rear is because the tire is so rounded for the street. It cuts a narrow rut everywhere in the dirt. A little extra width would help traction slightly. It seems to hook up on the street very well. with my old dirt tire, i could break loose the rear on pavement and now i just wheelie even if i dump the clutch. Its also corners on pavement good. Off road i can say its not to bad yet not great Its fair. It spins but what tire on a BRP doesnot. A good description is a longer lasting, streetable,and off-road capable tire. Bassically its a jack of all trades. I can get pics later, day or two and i only got 100 miles on them.

Hey, thanks for the ride report on the Maxxis! Can you compare them to other DS tires?

Sorry for asking so many questions but I am in the market for a set of ds tires for the brp. Got a set of Bridgestone TW39/40's for the wife's 230F, last month. Seem to be nice 80/20 tires and she likes their street manners. But they only come in a 19" front.

Like you said re the "brp spinning any tire in the dirt", it spins many tires on the street too, especially in turns. Been also looking at the Conti Escape and Metzeler Sahara, but Holy Hanna, those are pricey tires.

You may have found a very happy compromise. Can't beat the price, that's for sure!

Are you pretty confident the 130/80 would clear the brp's swing arm?

Ride safe.
