my 650L

today
Gorman, CA

happy 4th guys!


Dude ! That rear fender setup is dope !!! Is it pretty stable, most aftermarket ones I have seen offroad were flopping like a fish trying to fall off, through the whoops and rough stuff.

I do like the look though, more info would be great, (in-depth). I would like to make a suggestion, your next mod (mho) should be a set of Pro-Tapers CRF/High bends with the risers to adapt the 7/8" size. You will be seriously stoked with the improvement in feel and handling/responsiveness.

justicedone (Jim), thanks for the compliments. The rear fender is extra stable, but it took quite a bit of work to get it there. Both front and rear fenders are CRF450. I had to fab up a couple of brackets, and modify the fenders a bit...but eventually it worked out.
Yeah I agree. Bars are definitely on the list of things to do, I bet it feels soooo much better. These stock ones suck!
I plan on adding:
aluminum triple clamp, bars, pegs, HID, pumper carb, and stabilizer. I might need another job to fund it though, this stuff is f-ing $$$!!
you can see the front fender kinda in this pic.

the little plastic tank in the lower part fo the frame is a catch can for fuel coming from the carb... (a ufoplast part)

you must use it if you want to enter in closed supermoto tracks..

the headers are from Arrow (Italian brand of exhaust)
I don't know if they are available now..
they are built in stainless steel and they fit perfectly the stock muffler of the BRP.

Vee..looking at your lights and tank, are you trying to make up for something?

just kidding, not sure if you get the humor. Here in the states it common to joke about guys in big raised and lifted trucks trying to make up for a small weiner.

Ha ha

But your bikes look great, and I am sure those lights keep the hoppers out of your wheels, and the tank lets you explore the Island

thanks guys. as you all know the XR's have shit lighting i got tyred of hitting dirt corners blind at night.
plus our hoppers over here are called kangaroo's. ive ran over a tail of one once at 140kph :ride: thats close enough for me.
i live in the country so a long range tank comes in very handy here.

at the moment its off the road pulling it appart tomorrow to get the stator & pulse generator/exciter checked again 3rd time if its the problem last was 6mths ago for the later.
went out last monday morning to kick it over & no spark ?
has new coil & plug but still no go so pull the side cases off.

so what are these 650's like ive never thrown a leg over one yet.
planing on upgrading the dirt bike soon.
choices:
XR650R - reliable but heavy
husaberg 650sm ?
husquvarna 510sm ? or 610sm ? (must be in RED/WHITE )
TM530sm ?
ktm 990 adv's or 950 super enduro (pending on wife's say :ride: )

any advice on these other euro models apriciated.
