Gathering the parts to build my XR650R. Scored a super clean low mile plated example. Rode it a few times and realized it was way more bike than I had hoped for and really like it. So decided to give it a nice makeover and some love. 


Starting here...




Built a Trail Tech X2 light into a small "Rally" fairing. also ordered up a Seat Concepts 1 inch taller couch of a seat. This is my 4th SC seat... I love them. 




Also ordered up some nice new Cycra hand guards and CRF vented front fender.






Already added a Trail Tech Voyager GPS and IMS large tank. Did 140 mile mostly off road adventure ride on it last sat and loved it. Also ordered up $150 worth of new cables, air filters, and oil filters for the good people at XRs only. Amazing what those guys have for these older bikes. Great resource. 


Looking forward to making it a really nice light weigh adventure bike.

Hi all, I've been a multi XR owner...had 3x 250s and 600 back in the late 80s & early 90s before giving up on dirtbikes...and returned to the fray last year with a mint 250 (posted in the 250/400 forum).

Finding that I like twisting a throttle again and want some grunt I managed to track down a 2000 650R with 9k Km's (5k miles) on it sitting at a dealers at the other end of the state...

I'll give it a check over and few protective parts, some extra fuel capacity and set it up for adventure dual sport type riding to cover back road miles....

Should have it week after easter...

Hey dudes. I was able to build my 99 xr650l with some of the wisdom here on tt. Thanks for a great forum.

Really like the tank! How much does it take and what year is that? Stock XR frame?

Thanks mon. I picked up a 99 for 1800 cleaned rebuilt and replaced berings and wear items about another 500. Bling and mods 1000 and about 2000 on the front with the computer and wheel. Say just at 5k. The tank and frame are both stock white with the stock 99 graphic.

Got some stuff done on the BRP. 1" taller and amazing Seat Concepts seat. My 4th one and these are amazing seats. HID X2 Trail Tech light with added windshield. All new cables and fork boots from the good people over at XR's only. The new fancy Cycra hand guards which I must say are very nice and a CRF front fender (color match is off but acceptable... Honda thing not Cycra). Also got some billet adjustable levers of eBay which for the price thought might be chinese crap, turns out they are VERY nice chinese stuff. Reminds me of the Zeta stuff. Very impressed.

Brand spankin' new 2016.  Going to take her home and slap on some Conti Twinduro TKC80s and go from there.... I had my last one in 1993, I forgot how heavy they are!  I look forward to putting some miles on it soon.

I just picked this up 3 hours ago....

I am a 54 yr old, long time rider, started on a QA 50 in 1971.

I got what I think is a good deal, new clutch, sprockets, chain, tires, no smoke, runs well....

Needs clutch and brake levers, handlebars bent, headlight missing, leaking gas.....

But starts on 2nd kick, runs good....


Damn this thing is fast and powerful and big.

I owned an XL200 but this is much bigger....

I think I have bitten off more than my old ass needs to handle....  but it oughta be a blast.

She seems like a pure beast.




Second pic, I cleaned her up a bit....
