Well this is my first post here so might as well make it showing my baby.

Its a 94 XR650L with Super trapp exhaust. I just put on a new brake light with integrated blinkers on it today, and some nice red grips.

I want to uncork it, and i need to find some passenger pegs for it. But i love the bike to death, so much power.

Posted Image

as you can see in the picture the blinker was dieing, so had to do some replacing.

sooooo friggan happy at this bike as a choice :smirk:

ridden dirtbikes (125's, 250's, and 450's) for over 10 years now. i'm 26.

finally had a little money, wanted a street legal road bike, so the search began for the perfect bike. Cruisers? too big, heavy, and ostentatious for my tastes. Sport bike? too fast, too uncomfortable, I didn't want to die, and I didn't want to associate myself with that crowd. I tried SO HARD to get my YZ450F street legal as a supermoto, but it was a path that ended in tears, so I gave up that money pit. A quick, nimble, light, and hooligan-able bike was REALLY what I wanted. To be able to jump off the road and go into the woods? AWESOME.

in the ned it was down to a supermoto DRZ400SM and an XR650L. Thank GOD I chose the one I did :smirk: . Thanks in part to this forum, reading late into the night days onend, Finally found one on craiggy-list for a steal (he stole from me... the price was NOT right... but the bike sure was... so whatever)

my Bone Stock Beauty:
(cant wait to get my luggage rack, panniers, and extra large gas tank)

dual sport that is.

It's a 2007 with 1,700 km's on it, and it came with some mods already done, and a few more in transit. new pegs, bars, and a tank will be on this within a week. I just picked up my boots today and they are far too clean, so i plan on sorting that out Saturday.

I took it to some logging roads in Squamish the first weekend and had a blast. It left me wondering why i spent the last 12+ years on sportbikes only.

Figured it was time to share a pic of my 1993 XR650L- Picked it up about a week and a half ago. Pic is from the 100 mile ride home.

Previous owner painted EVERYTHING, frame, engine, exhaust, wheels, yeah, everything! Doesn't look bad but not something I'd have asked for if I were asking. Has been de-smogged, de-snorkeled, not sure about carb mods but I'm not touching the carb considering how well it runs. Exhaust was apparently on an ATV and they cobbled it together to work on the XR, it's a Big Gun and sounds absolutely awesome, I'm thinking I'll clean up the welds and go with it. Nearly new Pirelli Scorpions on it too.

I've added a UNI filter, XRR 15t front sprocket (ordered but not installed), Trail Tech Vapor (ordered but not installed). Changed the oil.

Mostly using it as an around town bike with some trails and dirt roads and some 'around the yard' rides with my girlfriend's son on his bike. I've put around 600 miles on it and love it- considering I traded a 1998 Ninja 500 for it and had less than $500 in the Ninja I won't complain at all over the paint and cosmetics! :ride:

Anyway, here's the pic-

ASF, Also a nice ride.

Is the 89 frame the same as the 08? If so what's the details on your tank. I had an IMS wasn't a fan (no offense Jboat). The reacted badly with decals and the cap seals (three of em) kept rotting with Cali's summer blend. Which incidentally tends to burn in the nether regions as it evaporates.

Thanks, so far most things have been inetrchangeable with the L pretty much except for the tank

I am running the Aloop with custom shrouds (04 CRF trimmed to fit). They make a kit for your 650L.

Here's my old trim with oversized tank, not as nimble as the aloop but it walked the paces just fine. You can get creative with graphics, this kit was meant to be on a different tank but still looked great.

Thanks TJ,

I wish I could have bought black panels and I looked. I couldn't even find after market white ones for BRPs.

They're painted, with Krylon Fusion for plastic (it's flexible). The gloss black works great! Of course regardless of what the can says (yep, it's a ball can job) prep the surfaces with a scuff pad then rinse and dry thoroughly. Apply in wet coats in a dust and bug free environment. Note: Their red sucks. I could never get it to not orange skin and it didn't adhere at all well. That's one of the reasons for the Acerbis headlight and shroud (looks better anyway).

That finish is three years old by the way.

No cracks, no fading, just kept up with Armor All UV. The rest of the plastics (including the now second headlamp kit) are new. Except for the stock rear fender (it's fix'n to go soon).
