Black Excels on 650L?

24 posts in this topic

Is anyone running black excel rims on their 650L? My dealer's not open today and I was wondering if it was the same hub as the 600R or 650R? I'm having trouble finding a black front rim for the 650L. Thanks for any input.

Thanks jbroom, I should've clarified I was thinking of 21's and 18's not 17's. Just got an update from TCR and they will custom drill for the XRL (32 spokes) out of Excel blanks.

Check out sum of all parts. Thats where I bought my wheels and tires. They come all laced and trued, ready to bolt right onto your bike. I got black ones on my L, check out my garage, got pics in there.

And for yamaboy, dont you ever have anything good to say?!? We really dont need smart mouth kids in here!

yaa, i dont think of a 650l as a "put through hell" baja type motorcycle, more of an urban dirt road/light trail bike. I've tried it all before going straight to the road and it just aint there for any racing or what not. Dude, you have already said a bunch of dumb shit to anyone who wants to put 17's on their bikes (including me) and it gets old really frekin quick! Just let everyone do their own thing, no one said nothing about your half black, 1/2 a** done bike, opps. Anywho, sorry for that everyone.

Zack, the bikes coming along really nicely. You should go on ebay and get an XR600 black gripper seat cover. They fit fine, just let an auto upholstery shop install for like 15-20 shells.

would make it look much better, next mod should be a good fork brace, maybe a wave rotor...but keep up the sweet moddin'

Thanks Jim! I have been looking for a seat cover, I'll check on ebay today and see what I can find. I do wanna trim the seat a little bit to fit around the new tank and on the sides a little bit so its more comfortable... 320mm rotor kit is next on the list and I might be done, ha.

Zack

EDIT: Does the 600 seat cover fit a 650l seat?? Thanks!
