traded the xr off
traded my 2012 xr off last saturday for a new 2013 xc anti freeze green. so far i have ordered:
madstad brackets and 11" shield
witchdoctor pipes and end caps
shifter and brake pedal bushings
PLEASE DON'T TELL MY WIFE....TOLD HER IT DIDN'T NEED A THING...LOL
now just waiting on delivery and will start working on it. will need some pointers on removing the headlight trim ring, light, and fairing.
will post some pix once the sun comes back out.
Congrats Man! The XC is a great bike! Good color! You'll love the Madstad-it should come stock! Be sure to adjust it to at least 3 or 4 settings before you lock into one-minor changes make a huge difference. I can cruise all the way past 105 w/o noticeable buffeting on mine.
Trim ring removal is easy... Use the fingernails of both hands along the top of the hl trim ring to get it started, then slowly work it off all the way around.
The light has two bolts above and two below-very simple...
On the fairing, insert a small Allen wrench into the outside end of each speaker grill and gently pull to remove them, then unscrew the outer bolt that is hidden behind each grill, then the other 3 or 4 on each side of the fairing, working downwards on each side.
The fairing "snaps" in and out. I use two hands, one at the top of each side of the fairing (right above the speaker grills) and pull down and out to unseat it. Don't drop it cuz its off once you "unsnap" it.
You'll be happy you bought the amp, especially if you bought pipes too... By the way, what are shifter and brake bushings that you ordered?
