Picked up a NEW '07 XR650L...in Phx, Az.

$5800 OTD, but got the 3 yr. extd warranty for another 6 Benjamins....$6400.

UHauled it back up the mountain to Flagstaff for break-in. About 5000 feet elevation gain. I'm sure it's gonna need some adjusments.

I'm such a noob, I know I'm gonna need help...hope this bike doesn't put me in the poor house...hehe.

I also weigh about 250lbs...any linky's or tips on dialing in the suspension?

Happy Trails.

you can enter all your info into racetech valve search and it will tell you the spring rate that you need.

I am not a teacher, or young anymore (only in my head) but I do work for the School District (carpenter-painter)..lol

I do like Eminems music though, hes a pretty dope ass &%$#@!

Congrats on the new bike, I think you could have saved the warranty money for mods, since the bikes bulletproof !

But enjoy and get some pics up when you hit the trails.

That's a good price. Paid $6142 OTD for mine in ALB. NM last weekend.
Was hoping to stay stock for awhile, but thinkin' some mods gonna be in order real soon. Trying to give it a chance first... patience so hard to come by...
