Someone locally is selling a 1993 XR650L with 16k miles. They are asking $1700. Does that seem like a fair price? What kind of upgrades am I looking at for this bike to use it as a daily 60 mile commuter?

not bad. check if it smokes and if the engine makes any noise. not many changes are needed to do that kinda riding. although a pipe and jetting make a world of difference!

Can't say what upgrades till we know what is on it now ? Is it all stock ?

Yea, 1700 is a fair price. I have seen a lot of them with 5-7000 miles on go for 2000 to 3000 so you may be able to even get it cheaper ?

Have any pictures, does it need anything ?

Just to give you a comparison, this one here had 7000 miles on and went for 2550 and that's with a 500 dollar exhaust on.

Pretty sure it's a 93 also.

$1,700 is a steal if it runs good and hasn't been dumped a bunch of times. I paid $2,000 for a 93' just recently with 17,000 miles. I LOVE IT!

The bike for sale doesnt look anything like that...I might have to verify the model in person.

It very well might be a 93 with a 4 gallon or so plastic tank and painted side panels. Different seat or seat cover too.

93-99 all have white frames.

Does the guy have the stock tank yet? WITH graphics on ?

:thumbsup: Is the car dealer that far away that you just can't look and see the year for yourself?

Call them up and ask!

:thumbsup: Well, are you going to get it ?

Offer the guy 1400 and walk away if he doesn't bite. Tell him you really don't like the plastic tank and that is a few hundred right there for a factory replacement.

Pick on anything else that you feel it might need.

Good luck, man. I agree with offering him $13-1400, especially since it's at a car lot. As long as it doesn't smoke, valves aren't noisy, and it shifts thru all the gears, you're good to go.

For a 650L, that's nothing dude !!! The bike just laughs at a daily ride like that!

amazingly the Honda's and indeed the offraod dualsports like the XR650L tend to keep thier resale value, unless of course really hammered - but that is as with anything that has been beat and or neglected. A XR6650L in good shape and runniing well will always bring from 2 - 5K dependent only upon the year.

My recent trip to the Harley Davidson Dealer was intersting when I asked why do they cost more than a Honda crusier. Reply was that they keep thier resale value better, pa-shaw! so do most Honda's!

Bottom line in answering your question, 1700 is fair given it is excellent condition and runs well. A daily 60 miles commute would be no problem.

For sure! :thumbsup:

A nice 93-98 can be worth just as much as the newer red ones in a lot of cases! Not only does the brand help but also being that it is the SAME bike for 14 years now!

I paid 3000 for this one and could have gottn a newer one for almost the same price but I'm not into the red on the L models.
