So about a month ago I just got a 93 XR650L. So far I love this bike. I was told that everything stock on it and it has about 5k. I was curious as to what mods should be done first to make this bike run better. I would say that most of the time I will have this on the street. Weekend trips on the trails. Should I be upgrading exhaust, tires, carb kit etc. I was also looking to get rid of the blue side covers and go with white ones. Do the newer years fit on this model? I have checked into a lowering linkage. Can anyone recommend one over the other? I looked into White Bros and Devol . . what about bearings? I think that I read somewhere on here to replace them as well.

Thanks to anyone who give me a little head start.

Dave&Brian mods!

Smog block off!

Exhaust? Try it tuned properly with the stocker first.
Tires? Search, lotsa advice on those here.

Don't buy a dynojet kit!
