Where to attach a tug strap?

Post  BHW on Wed Oct 13, 2010 1:05 am

In the few days Ive had the XR650R sitting in my garage, Ive already noticed that there's absolutely nowhere to grab the back end of the bike to lift it. My XRL had a subframe under the fender. So, what's a good place to attach a tugger strap? I think I saw someone put one under the seat bolts. Not my first choice, but I'll go that route if that's it.

Pretty much. Ive got some strapping to use. I just noticed that there really isn't a good place to grab the bike from, and wanted to anchor a strap. The only place I could think of without being with the bike at the moment, was the seat anchor bolts. That just doesnt seem secure.

I am planning to make my own underframe which will be made as the grab rail. Silly not having the sub-frame going further back as your pulling on the plastic fender which doesn't seem ideal.
