Dakar Kit and Leo Vince

Post  modette on Fri Aug 07, 2009 2:45 pm

Dakar Dual Sport Kit:


Leo Vince SLip-on:


Also my switch from Highwaydirtbikes came today :-)

I'm sad, I went to put on the headlight yesterday, and they sent me two left side brackets...LOL So I had to call them and they are sending me a right side bracket. I asked how long and he did not know, then he said I'll send it 2 day shipping. Cool I can live with that. So far an A+ from these guys.

So I had to put the stocker back on, although it does not work, just so I will not be hassled in my 5 miles to the dirt road. Suppose to ride with the brother in-law today.

At least I got the Leo Vince on without problems.

Here it is on the bike:



First Impressions:
Great pipe, not too loud, a lot better then a de-corked factory setup. Looks nice too. The installation is easy, even a noob can do it.

The one slight problem is the exhaust hanger is slightly tweaked from the factory. It allowed mine to turn sideways, however this fixed mines problem and now it can hang straight and it is not going to turn again. The brother in-laws is on a slight angle, however his has not turned like mine did. But like I said that might be the key to getting it to hang straight.

Man, that dude at HDB makes some very cool stuff. I don't think I've ever seen any nicer hand guard setup for under $150.00 (I think I've looked at every one made Smile ).

Congrats on getting the Leo V pipe on the pig! I bet she sounds sweet.

Someone will have to break the ice with some exhaust "sound videos," sometime soon. Call me mad, but I've always enjoyed those.

Yep, I plan to get a set of those with the flip out mirrors down the road...will make it possible to actually see behind me on the street and still offer the protection needed off road, and they look cool as hell.

Yeah, you copycat, but unless I get a government bailout, I need to get the credit card back down from all the other purchases before I can order mine. Oh and the Motard wheels. Maybe a set of sidewinder chain and sprockets. And some brake rotor protection. Maybe a electric start from http://www.joeracerproducts.com/index.php?module=electricstart. I could have the most pimpin BRP yet. LOL

LOL great minds think alike. Yeah, that Electro start looks bad ass, nice and out of the way, looks factory. Unless I get a job, I will not be getting that though...although I would not need you then to kick my bike to get it started...hahahaha Oh, wait never mind everyone you did not see that...

Kidding?

You can buy a backup BRP for the cost of that starter. Or you can take it to PC and have them jet the Keihin properly and not buy an estarter or an Edelbrock. In other words, learn from my mistake! angry

Both of my XRr are pretty easy to kick however I wouldn't mind converting one to a push button either...There are those days we just feel a little lazy.

Starters vs Restarters

Post  Bump on Fri Aug 14, 2009 6:57 am

If anyone else on here has an eStarter then jump in. But my experience is that it's really more of a restarter than a starter. This is NOT like what some of are used to with street bikes. I had a turbo bike back in the 80s and it's a lot like that. All the planets have to be lined up to start the bike when cold. So I just end up kicking when cold and saving the estarter for other times. Or not using it at all and thinking it's there for emergencies like me getting hurt.
