Anybody know if the XRL seat is the same as other Honda model seats? I want a cool seat cover and really like the FX (Factory Effex) TC-4 seat cover, but they don't offer one for an 07 L. :eek: The only major complaint I have about the L is that everything I want to buy for it, I have to search high an low for it, and it doesn't seem that way for the R. :thumbsup:

Guts seat covers can custom make one for you. Late model 600R's have the same seat as a 650L.

Kenda DOT K3Y3 tires. Very cheap $80 for a set. Very soft, won't last very long. Rear is ok, front is a bit squirrelly. I bought them to get by NM MVD, Bought bike from CA. Next set I buy will not be these tires.

I'll post pics when I mount that Emig Steering Stabilizer on the 400/USD. Gary is a bit slow on shipping parts.

Not trying to speak for Norge but I believe that is the $69 rack that is always on ebay. I have one and love it. Goes on real easy.

Yes, you're right it's from e-bay. I dont have the stock turn signal mounts or stock fender, so I modified that rack with longer/narrower mounts and added turn signal mounts. I then spent another $20 to get it powder coated. I borrowed this design and built a rack for my XR400 also.

CEET makes a gripper cover in black, I have one on my L. It's decent quality, reasonbly priced, but a little too grippy for my tastes.

If you like gripper then they are fine. I custom ordered my seat without gripper material and Guts did not charge extra for the Flamer seat cover,

just put the Ebay seat cover on my bike today. While I had the cover off I was able to sand some of the foam off. the seat now is rounded on the sides and lower in the front of the seat so the seat is not as square. After 300 miles the squre seat made me bow legged. My friend that does the same painful 300 miles on his husky smr floss seat sat on my new seat and was like :thumbsup: here is a picture
