Has anybody weighed their XR 650R with gas, coolant, armour, and oil? If so how much does it weigh??? I was at the dealer picking up the service manual for my TT-R and decided to look at one. I picked the back end up (as to put it on a stand) and the weight seemed pretty close to that of an XR 400 which I consider reasonable. It sounds like a killer bike and if the weight is reasonable and the price is right it MIGHT sway me from getting the WR 450f I was planning to get next year. How much does a ready to roll XR 650R weigh? :thumbsup:

Yep.... I can put this bad girl over my shoulder if I have too. 318lbs here.

Hey Jfilpo, if the Wr 450 is too big for you, they make a 250.

:thumbsup: the pig is not big .... a little tall .... but not big.
Trust me, when you grab a handful of throttle on this baby, it feels
like it weighs 150lbs. :bonk:
Seriously though, it's real nimble through the tight stuff. Frame geometry
and ergonomics makes it a breeze in the woods use some bark busters though
just in case. :thumbsup:

The WR 450 is actually the main bike I am considering for my next purchase. Im sure the XR 650 would be cool on fire roads and wide open stuff but I like to venture in tight stuff and MX tracks often.

J-You're comparing apples to oranges here....

A TTR250 vs. XR650R w/ regards to weight, c'mon now. Get rid of that *put put* bike and step up to a real mans machine. I will give you the nod that in the tight stuff she can be a handful but if you learn to ride the bike you're all set. I ride tight New England singletrack that's rocky, rooty and muddy and do very well with it. You should see the look on guys faces at enduros when I speed by them.

Dry 277
Gas 30 4.6 gals.
Misc.10 damper, skidplate,tube pack,IMS pegs,etc.
317 Been to the scales and 320 is right.Fanny pack 25, back pack 20, 200 lb. rider or more and that's a 600lb. package.

Any there's also the weight of engine oil, coolant, fork oil, shock oil, brake fluid...

When Honda says "dry weight" they mean DRY. Published dry weights from the Big Four are notoriously misleading.

This is interesting :thumbsup: So if you're saying its all about getting used to the bike then I should be okay. The great thing about the XR 650R is that around here they aren't really in demand and one can usually get them about 500-1000 under retail price OTD. That cannot be said for the E-start 450s :bonk:. I guess im gonna have to ride one to make my decision. :bonk: :thumbsup:

I'm not saying a trip to the gym a few times a week doesn't help with manuevering the XR....but it isn't as piggish as some make it seem.

Fight a DR650 round the bush for a few years and a BRP feels like a 250 :thumbsup:

I've met a ton of guys who ride XR650R's and for the most part they are all big guys. I'm 6'7 245lbs and most of the piggy riders I know are ATLEAST 200 lbs and 6'0 or above. If you can't get both feet down on this bike it might be a bit to handle in the tight stuff. :thumbsup:
