    TKC's are great, but you also might want to consider the Michelin T63. I have them on my DR650 and love them. They last longer then the TKC's, are cheaper and a bit better on the road. They look the part too. TKC's are better off road for sure, but I don't think that the XSR is gonna ever be able to task the T63's beyond their off-road capacity. Anyways, the TKC's look bitchin and will serve you well. Definitely post pictures once you have some new rubber!

    I say Mitas E07 Dakar would be perfect, have a look at the thread pattern! I used them on my previous ride a KTM 690 enduro r. Really nice.

    The bags are 'Banjo Brothers canvas paniers'. Quality is ok. they have a waterproof inner liner which seems durable enough. There’s already a steel bar for attaching them to the mounting frame. $97 for the pair.

    The XSR900 has 8mm screw holes under the plastic cache with the aluminum thing which are great for attaching panniers. As mentioned previously by jwest7788 (No mounted saddlebags that I could find for my XSR900, Made my own.) you can get the measurements from the SW-Motech instructions for their heritage panniers.

    Personally, i wanted the bags to be NON-removable, so that made things a little easier. The mounting frames are made up of U-shaped aluminum pieces, then a L-shape one bolted perpendicularly.
    I don’t like carrying my helmet around, so I installed a cable lock, which goes into the mounting frames and is held by cable stops. The cable is short enough so it doesn’t move around.

    A few more details:

    XSR900 'Adventure'-radiator_guard.jpg

    The radiator guard, with the shroud painted with a high-temp paint. (Not sure the high temp is needed, but I like the 'flat' look of that paint)

    XSR900 'Adventure'-img_8399.jpg

    The SW-Motech and the Yamaha front cowl are kind of incompatible. Hence the need to grind the SW-Motech arms a bit.

    The cheap, but nice levers

    The Led blinkers are not very bright, but they do look good. Guess their price.......
    $1 each on Wish, shipping included! I got one which wasn't working, so it's best to order some extras. You can also find them on eBay, where they're more expensive (like $2.50 each... ouch!)

    It seems the Michelin T63 are tube-type, not tubeless.

    The Mitas 07 look like excellent tires. Not sure they fit the XSR900, though. For instance the rear is only available in 150/70 while the OEM tire is 180/55 ?

    Ahh I see, did not think about that. I do remember that they were a tight fit in the swing arm since Mitas measure the width of the carcass and not the total width. The 150 was more like 170 total width. Much wider than tkc80 150 that was original. I found the E07 very nice onroad and good for dirt and dry offroad considering its a dual sport.

    With 150/70 you will have 105mm high tyre to compare to the original 180/55 which gives you 99mm profile height.

    But if it won't fit, then no use.

    Heidenau k60 scout is available in 170/60 if you want a similar pattern. Gives 119mm high profile.

    I ran the K60 Scouts on the DR. Definitely a good choice. Very long life and good on the road as well. A bit noisy at high speed.
