Well guys, have I lost it? The obsession with the XRL won't stop. I bought my bike (used) in Sep '03 & the modifications seem to be endless. Here's a list of mods to date: Bash plate, XR-style tail light, Uni-air filter, Supertrapp IDS-2 conversion kit, desnorkled, rejetted carb, drilled the slide, shimmed the needle, Clarke 4.0 & graphics kit, in-line fuel filter, Renthal Hi-bends, Pro Grips, 14-45, cut out the ovals in the cs sprocket cover, Acerbis fork/disc guards, front & rear knobs, magnetic drain plug, Burly footpegs... This is why I changed my signature a couple months ago. (I think) just too much to list. And the strange (insane) part about it is that I don't think I'm finished yet. I think my goal is to turn this 350 lb. monster into an XR600R with e-start and factory blinkers. Every time I ride off-road I feel compelled to clean the dirt & mud off immediately, like it's never seen dirt, but it has, and a lot. I'm always checking this, lubing that or wiping something down. I guess I'm what's called an enthusiast (or anal). I'm always coordinating rides & convincing my buddies to go & ride off-road. Anybody else feel the same about their Thumpers and this "hobby?"
