Ugliest XR Part...

Has gotta be those fork boots...IMHO.

Any aftermarket alternatives....

Yeah - Sealsavers. Not too tough to install and looks a lot better. I get about 2 years out of a pair. Rocky Mountain has Tusk brand "sealsavers" if you are on a budget.

I'm using Sealsavers. So far so good.

I have the forkskins on other bikes and they work, will be getting some for the pig! Oh, they have velcro so you just wrap them around the fork tube and wallah, done.:mad:

what brand fork brace is that?

i looked on the rocky mountain site and don't really understand there lenghts.

it says 44-50mm long but there is no way that would cover all of the fork

one mroe question.... do they constantly need ajdustments on the trial... looks like they might get bunched up from all the suspension action

BWB63's brace looks like a Superbrace. I've got one and like it.

The measurement is the diameter of the fork tube, not the length. The XR650R has 46mm tubes.

I've never had mine bunch up or need adjustment.

Thats what works for me...Hold up pretty good...

I think its that exhaust on the 70-80-100- the way it looks is kinda ugly to me:thumbsdn: i like the silver racing bike color:ride:

Rocky Mountain ATV/MC sells Tusk Neoprene Seal Guards for $9~$12 the long 44mm~50mm ones work on our bike if you have a fork brace (that is the setup I have). Some times it gets a little lump in it but, not all bunched up. Yes, Mine is a SuperBrace and it is has a machined in fork boot holding collar, Works great. I missed what the 70-80-100- exhaust???? I am a little slow and that went over my head.

Damn, that's a sick looking bike! :mad: I've never seen anything like it...... I bet it's heavy as :mad: though.....lol Then again, most 650s are...

To each their own, but those sure don't look better than boots to me. :mad:

Both without fuel that bike weighs two pounds more then a stock bike. Both full of fuel it weighs 18 pounds more then a stock bike but, with the longer travel CR500 shock and 20mm longer forks it "feels" much lighter.

I'll have to check this out. I thought they were water proof but, then again I didn't check. Whole reason for them is to have "0" dirt reaching the fork tube or getting to the seals. I have 100 miles on mine in the worst silt and sand so, I will pull them and check what got past the neopreme.

May have spoke to soon on my above comment, just read about them on the SRC site , if you zip ty them top and bottom as Mr. Summers suggests .....good to go. He should know ...:mad:

Hawk,

I feel like I've asked you this before but what headlight is that and is it street legal in CA? (from the photo I'm assuming you are in SoCal)

Also, is there room between the headlight hardware and the front fender for a front fender mounted steering dampener?
