Hi,
I am new to the site, here is my new 2003 XR650R I bought from a dealer who had it around for three years. Previously I had an XL600R and when my boys (28 and 30) began to dirt ride often I thought that I might up grade a bit. I also have a Valkyrie Interstate, a Kawasaki ZRX1100 and a 1971 Kawasaki Mach III.

The battery box mod was originally posted on 4-strokes.com by superflyryan. He had gone into really great detail on what he had done to eliminate the huge box. This mod places the battery and electricals into the existing air box. You then will need to run a clamp on style air filter. I believe Ryan was using a UNI foam pod style filter. I went with a K&N universal 5" with a K&N precharger. In the future I am going to try the 4" style K&N. This will allow a little easier access to the carb. You will need to also pick up some style of crankcase breather filter, I used a UNI model clamp on. I will post you some pics of what the battery installed into the air box ended up looking like. The only downfall is deep water crossings, but with the clearance the XR's have I don't need to be in that deep of water.

I added a few pictures of the electricals and battery in the air box. Also one of just how much the mod opens up the rear fender area. Hope this helps.

Did the 600's come with turn signals and lights? Your frame has the buddy peg attachment like the L frame too, is this an Australian thing?

well, quite the difference there - one has a license plate, the other doesn't.

the L is sold now - you get it? I'd take the R, although I have a hard time believing anyone to have 93 miles on that bike
