Just a follow-up for you lads...I did indeed fit a "single" Honda VFR-Blackbird type "Push/Pull" pin to my XR in the front left of the lower chin fairing, I had to clean out the hole slightly but they fit ...and fit nice and tightly...I did a ~3000km ride/tour with some mates over the last 8 days including two track days at Phillip Island Moto-GP race circuit in Victoria, Australia and it stayed put....so I think I'll be changing out the others as well...much easier to use and you don't lose the center pin. :152:

On a side note...the XR is an absolute beast on the track for what is essentially a sport bike on stilts, I was only running the stock Bridgestone T30 tyres but they held on admirably for a ST tyre and made some chaps on their race tyre shod track bikes look rather sad..! I actually passed an older ZX-9 and couple of R1's down the straight, which was a bit odd :086:...didn't expect that :047:
Coming onto the straight out of turn 12 at full noise in 4th gear the XR was lifting the front end ever so slightly...certainly gets your attention. :005: But great fun too..!

Smithy.

Clean out meaning... file?  Regardless, this is tempting.  Sticking with the BMW pins is a mandate to either 1) have the dealer do all of your maintenance or 2) have a good supply on hand to replace the ones you will inevitably lose.

Glad you tore up the track on the 'XR.  I'm fully aware of how capable a performer it is, and have to constantly check my ego as the bike out performs my own ability as a rider.  The XR would kill me.  :012:

By "clean-out" I mean just run an 8mm drill through the hole, simple as that...

And yes, I'm also the same as you, the XR is a much better bike than I am a rider...a decent rider would get much more out of it than I..! :034:

Cheers,

Rehashing this as I button the fairings together for the slowly arriving riding season.

On a fiche, the part number for the BMW OEM Rivets is 51467002606.  Replacements by Rexca (NOT OEM) can be had on Amazon in packs of 30, and it appears worth the cost to have that many on hand.  As I typically work under the fairings in the Spring and Fall when the damned rivets are brittle, I break them continuously. Just like I did 5 minutes ago.  :013:
