I have a K&N air filter and a Power Commander. With that, a custom map and the exhaust it really woke the bike up. 87 hp and 74 ft/lbs with a nice curve

Howdy Joe, hope all is well with you and Jen, sorry we didn't get together this past riding season, take care, hope to see you soon.
Are you really thinking of getting your XR back?
That would be cool, my bike is the same, just sent the front X forks down to Fast Bike Industries in NC, they did a Andreani piston kit, Ohlins springs and fluid, now the bike really tracks like its on rails, hope to show you soon!
Regards
Roy
