This bike is partially why I want another enduro 

Is that the raptor petcock? If so, be aware that it takes your reserve to almost nothing. I got caught with an empty tank on my 2006 DRZ because of that...

Swapped to the spare foot pegs I had, got rid of the tiny ones.

Lucky you. Mine came with the raptor one and it's a huge pain in the ass with the bigger FCR carb it also came with, beyond the whole "no reserve" thing.

See if you can extend the regular pickup tube so you have more remaining when it runs out on regular

In reply to thatsnowinnebago (Forum Supporter) :

Honestly I looked into the raptor petcock and decided to go drz E. Just eyeballing it I bet the raptor petcock wouldn't keep up. 

In reply to jfryjfry (FS) :

I did that on one for a local guy with a drz petcock in a Yamaha tank. 

In reply to Justjim75 :

If your ever in the area come take it for a spin. 

Found some hardware for the tail bag . 

Grips were toasted

Got replaced with my favorite rentals. 

Tusk coolant temp radiator cap.

Let it idle for 5-10 min scared the wife with a glowing header pipe.

Slim turn signals in.

In reply to Professor_Brap (Forum Supporter) :

Ooo, those are slick. Care to share the brackets and such you used? My stock left turn signal tab is missing so I'm brainstorming ways to move the signals back to the tail light.

Pick your fender eliminator that's this style. 

These turn signals.

Spliced into factory turn signal plugs and heat shrinked and you get this. 

 

The front are flush mount grom signals on stock brackets.

Made my front axle sliders, rears needs some massaging before it's done. 

I also got a hair up my ass and decided to pull the whole front into part to replace the headlight. 

What it came with. WR450 

All blown apart

Stock drz back on. When I get some time need to measure and build a bracket for a led light, I think $60 for a bracket is highway robbery.

I do that too.  Something priced way above its value triggers me to build one from scratch or modify and repurpose something else to do the job

Do you have any recommendations for handguard/barkbusters that I may be able to put on my Sportster?  Particularly for wind and rain, even though I never ride without gloves

Something like this I'd say would do the trick.
