 :400: welcome jay same as mine mate superb bike a hoot to ride I’m sure u will enjoy it
Few points from me some of the other guys might disagree but never mind
Get oil cooler and rad cover some lads saying it’s causes bike to overheat
But I think that’s crap
Fender extender on the front stops all the sh#t flying up under your clocks
Pyramid plastics take the mudguard off the bike to fit its stiffer than the mudguard and can affect margins from tyre if not fitted correctly
After that it depends on your budget and how much money I want to spend trying to improve what’s already a cracking bike

Jay - IMO, just saying (for me anyway), one "really" doesn't have to do a thing to the XR, however............

Waynexr - is pretty right on with............
- Get oil cooler and rad cover some lads saying it’s causes bike to overheat (I Mike K have had no problem with COX's version, I'm sure others are equally as good)
- Fender extender on the front stops all the sh#t flying up under your clocks 
- After that it depends on your budget and how much money I want to spend trying to improve what’s already a cracking bike

My additional suggestions are possibly a MRA VarioTouringscreen - Headlight protectors - Side stand enlarger (I have a Givi ES5119 Sidestand Extension - works great/ does the job/ has not gotten loose)

Still a rare sight in Manchester is the XR, probably because once on its all compass points for getting out of the place. Where are you buying from out of interest?

You'll never see a motorbike parked outside a psychiatrists.
