Yeah those zrx (ZREX) are really strong dependable bikes, my buddy has one. I got to ride it a few times and the power it has is really impressive, for being soooo heavy.

Hmmmm. I see a common thread here.......

XR= Big red pig, handles well, plenty of power, dependable, lots of fun.:prof:

ZRX= Big green pig, handles well, plenty of power, dependable, lots of fun.:bonk:

Sploogemonkey's a happy camper. :confused:;)

Oh and by the way Thumpage, it's an 1100 ('99). The 1200s were made from '01 to '05.

Oh and no chicken strips, but that is why I had to get rid of it. It was not compatible with high life expectancy. :prof:

Hi Gang!

I thought I'd finally found a thread that my XR6, The Riot would fit. I dont think I got the meaning of the term PIG tho. :thumbsup: The Riot is a PIG of a different sorts obviously!:thumbsup:

Welcome Sneaky!:thumbsup:

Pig is short for BRP or Big Red Pig. It's just what we call the R and the L over here.

Here is my pig, just got it in January and never imagined it would look like this in April. Just got the 17's on and have tested her a bit....really nice on the road! Now just waiting for the Trail Tech to get here as right now I have no speedo, not that I need it LOL!!! Also a buddy of mine who does car interiors owed me a favor and did the seat on the stock pan. It is a much better foam and he molded it to make it more comfortable and it absolutely rocks!

Wow, didn't realize there was so much foam on the stock seat that it could be lowered by that amount.

Actually I should have been more specific, he replaced the foam with a high quality automotive foam that he uses doing interiors. It was far more dense than the stock foam and he simply forms it and creates whatever you want. The seat is so comfortable compared to stock.:thumbsup:

      I swapped in a cush wheel on my XRl so I have this Warp 9 wheel up for sale.  Straight, no dents.  The hub is drilled to accept the XRl sprocket.  Just bolt it on and go.  $375.00 shipped to the lower 48.

      Can anyone explain to me why the mid-pipe on certain XR600R/XR650L exhausts gets substantially bigger before attaching to the muffler? In most cases it is actually the same size as the muffler where it attaches. The XR's only mufflers are a great example of this and so is my White Brothers E series muffler. On the other hand you have the more traditional mid-pipe shape from companies like FMF for the same XR600R. The midpipe is relatively the same size from the header to the muffler connection. Even high performance street bikes use this approach so why is it different with the big single?
      I've been looking at replacing my White Brothers muffler lately because it doesn't have the discs nor the backing plate to make it USFS approved. I've been back and forth between the FMF Powercore 4 and the xr's only mufflers. I was wondering if the odd mid-pipe shape helps the XR's only mufflers flow better. From what I've read the XR's only mufflers are stupid loud and that would warrant a quiet insert for me and thus choking the high flow muffler, right?
      Also, for anyone wondering- the White Brothers header that was installed on my XR600R is VERY CLOSE to the same dimensions as an XR's only header at both the cylinder and mid-pipe connection.

      Hey guys, Just came across all of these old school slide shows. They take awhile to record and upload to youtube. But I'm trying to get the good ones done first. Full of info and fun to watch. This one is all off road models cr500r cr250r cr125r cr80r cr60r as well as xr200 xr250 and xl600r. Also there is a test at the end of part 2 so make sure you study hahah.

      part 2

      So I ordered .47 fork springs and 11.5 rear spring for my xr600r from XR's only. And I bought the race tech suspension bible. So far I can't find any talk about what people have done for shim stacks or other fork mods. I have ideas about what I think I should do but why experiment if there is a known good starting point.  I revalved  my ranger about 10 years ago and I remember finding a lot of info online to help me with a starting point.
      I'm 6'2 230lb. The bike is plush now but  bottoms bad when I get in the whoops and I blew out the bearing for the rear shock last ride. 
      Any tips or tricks ? I'm not that great of a rider and no suspension expert but I'm pretty sure it can be set up better for me.  I hoped the race tech "bible" would have some info in it but it seems like more of a sales tool for the gold valves...
