8 posts in this topic

Hello everyone!

I am trying to street legal my new 07 R..and wanted a tag/tailight bracket that mounts under the rear fender..I thought about led..Has anyone tried the Acerbis , UFO or any others..I want one that fits the fender good and the tailight is not to big..I saw one on the Honda website(UK) Their 650 R comes with one,and a bigger headlight plus a lot of other better stuff!..But that part from honda would cost an arm and leg!..Any Thoughts?

Hey dude,

I've tried many, but now went LED.

Check out the DRC Edge-2 LED tail light:

This thing looks sharp and puts out a good quantity of light...

I got this sub-frame to hold everything up and it's rock solid...

thats a nice set up, I have been thinking R or L and the more I read and see stuff like this I think I'll start looking more towards and R.

I went acerbis for more of a DOT appearance with the LED kit. Protects the plate during layovers and flops. Also took BD's tail light and cut it a little for more "head on" or "rear on" light for traffic. ps. drawbacks though, Acrebis is a little tough to throw a leg over and looks rediculous. So, my next step is to go with my spare Dakar kit tailight and place LEDs in that, placing the plate back under the fender but I will mount the plate vertically.

I'm interested in hearing more about that frame loop.

Do you run saddle bags with that?

Yes, that's exactly what it's for.

Dirt Bagz make bags and panniers and make the sub-frame to stiffen up the rear fender of the XR650R. Mine is rock solid strong. :p

Yup that sub frame idea is a great idea for carring packs and bags! I'll have to fab one up for mine as well.
