Cool, thanks for explaining. Sounds like you're planning on taking your 650L a BIT further than I plan to take mine. I want to just snag a street legal 02 650R, and go from there. I'll keep this as a traveler/prerunning bike, because eventually, I have big dreams :thumbsdn:

I don't even have a header, just the back half White Brothers E2 setup. Will a header increase the db level a lot, because I'm already close to the legal limit here in California, and I get hastled even with my silencer in the pipe :devil:.

No the header does not effect sound output, It will affect your bottom end grunt and all the through the powerband, more power. Check out the www.xrsonly.com site they have a really nice exhaust, that you can tune for sound level, with a 96db insert, you can get the header for around $150, the can will be $280, and the insert $25, these qoutes are lower than what xrsonly sells them for, to get above prices and lower than list prices on all they sell contact Kamell, at rideaide@hotmail.com. He is in California too. Good luck.
Yeah I wanted a R model to dual sport too but we can no longer get plates for them in Florida :thumbsdn: :devil:
I decided I will save my money untill I can get a 07 Ducati 1100s multistrada instead.
This is why I am going to hotrod my L model a bit, will also put her on a diet see if she can lose a little around the belly.

REBELV you in fl? where? Come ride the dixie dual sports events with us! & concerning the L issue . my R runs even drag with a 400r. (I weigh 300) BUT in soft sand I notice the cubes/torque must kick in, cause that's when I seem to pull. Another dude we ride with has a L with xronly SS pipe & jetting, & is really quick. I thought they were supposed to be dogs, according to all the comments I read on here. But now I would consider getting one.

i can tell you i have ridden a couple of stock xr650l's with about 3-4k ann them,i bought one with about 16k on it,it doesnt smoke a bit and it has been rejetted with the white bros. pipe(but not header) it is way faster than stock! but i dont know the dyno specs.. on my old xl 350 i did an oversize carb. and a low end cam and found after jetting properly and regearing a bit lower it beat ever 500 i ever went up against..the motor can do it,but again be happy you have someone fairly evenly matched to ride with,if you kick his A__ every time it might get old..so maybe just have fun and be gratefull for what ya got?

Well maybe if there was some info on the DZR-400, I assume it to is not stock and has plenty of mods done to it. All I know in the 90's my ZX600 would keep right up with the 750's and 900's but not the liter bikes.JMHO!

un-corked - DRZ400s puts out 36hp at the rear wheel and a DRZ400E puts out 40hp at the rear wheel. Stock XR650L puts out 32hp at the rear wheel and un-corked it puts out 36hp at the rear wheel so, 38hp is great. The DRZ400 engine is a better design, water cooled and lighter. Suzuki make a great 400cc engine and it gets over-looked a lot.

Sweet!

Thanks for the reply, that's all I really wanted to hear, confirmation that my power figures weren't gimped :mad:

I guess it really is all the weight, cause even with what I've taken off, that skid plate, and fuel tank, not to mention my fat ass, really does make the difference.
