I just put money down on a 03 XR650R brand new. It was $4500 and I have wanted this bike since it came out thus I am very excited :thumbsup: I live in Colorado springs (6500 ft alt) and am purchasing it in Kansas so I know jetting will be screwed when I get it home. Any Colorado riders out there have jetting specs for the area?

From what I hear you need to remove the snorkel, replace stock carb manifold, install HRC tip, and rejet. Anything I'm missing? I planned on atleast leaving it stock for a break in and then uncorking. I sure hope it's easier to take apart than my DR350 was!

Congratulations! Nothing more fun then being the first one to ride a new bike. Do yourself a favor and only ride it once with it corked up only so you will get the big grin factor once you un-corked it. Don't wait to break it in first. It was never meant to run all choked off the way it comes from the factory. Have fun.
