I'm in Dubai at the moment and am looking at buying a XR 650. No one is sure if it is an L or an R. is there any obvious differences. Can you tell from the chassis no.JH2RE01A33K230020.Will be grateful for any help.

the only thing the L and R share are the xr650, the L is a stroked 600r, air cooled factory dualsport, the R is a whole new water cooled xr which replaced the 600r as a desert racer
