Smicer,
It looks good.

Where did you get the fairing from??
What head lights are you running?

Thanks for that you got me thinking.

You asked a question, what oil do we run in the forks. 2.5WT fork oil.

I think you said you had trouble with it blowing over?
And you took the thermostat out?
Get a 1990 Suzuki swift car thermostat, it fits straight in.

hey dude...thats really great info...its been awhile that question have been hanging....i've actually ridden the bike for more than 2months plus and covered about 4k kms without the thermostat...will it be harmful?

I've yet replace my fork oil...but thanks for the info too...:confused:

I would run a thermostat, just keeps the motor at a constant temp.

It is worth downloading the manual for the 650R here.

Hi BBA...i am posting it here bcoz i can't reply to your pm....your message box is full....so instead i am replying it here...

Hi. You have a great looking XR. I just bought an 02 XR650R out of California and Im waiting for the shippers to get it here to me in Nevada. Im going to use this bike as a Dualsport and plan on riding it 58 miles round trip each day to work. I've heard these bikes do not like to sit in traffic for very long and they run a little hot on hill climbs as well.

I really like your KTM fan installment. I really want to do this mod to my bike first thing when it arrives. It is already tagged and has most of the updated performance parts and mods but nothing for keeping it cool. How hard was this to do? The Stator has already been upgraded so Im not concerned about enough power to run it and the lights but just the basics on what was your process and what model of KTM did the fan come from? Any help on this would be very appreciated from a noob! Thanks Matt



Hi Matt,

The installation is easy...mine was done by a mechanic...but i have given a good look at it...it fits almost perfectly on to the rad...as you can see,two screws mount on the top of the fan,while the bottom 2 is just cable tie...the KTM fan comes with a connector....i cut away the connector,and two wires came off it...one goes to grounding,the other goes to the switch...

The Fan came from EXC400....i think you can consider using DRZ400S model too...

i hope the info above would be a good help...

those photos i took was recently few months back...its not very technical and not so awesome...
i have slowed down the pace of heavy trailings for the past 1yr...i used to follow a fellow malaysian friend who is a mechanic...he have a shop in JB...he will lead us the trail entering from Kota Tinggi and will end somewhere in Mersing...its always a 1day affair which is on Sundays....we attack in the morning and usual ends at evening...

Late this month they are organising a 2day 1nite trail and camping in the jungle...i wont be able to join unfortunately...

But i believe there should be a good trailing spots somewhr in KL....even i have some friends heading to Sepang after Hari Raya to participate in the race there...

You don't need to travel down so far dude...

Did another trail ride after 1month not having to ride...weather was good..all sunny..

although having really bad front tyre and a semi off-rd tyre on the rear,the BRP is awesome to ride..Its been raining for the past few days...leaving more deeper mudpools and ruts,the rear wheel doesnt slid much...the power of the BRP is fantastic..it just pump up the bike on every sticky situation...exception my luck gone bad with the front tyre at this one point and got the front handlebar locked to the left sending me crashing face down and sprained my left elbow as it was tucked inside and my left leg got stuck between the rear wheel and and sideboards as my right leg pinned down by the pig...

anyways....here's some shot.

Getting all geared up.

i stupidly fell in the mudpool behind my XR..i stopped in the centre of the mudpool hoping to snap a photo of the pig in it to show how deep the mudpool is..but as i kick my sidestand down and try to put my left leg down,i couldn't reach the ground and the bike and me topple in the mudpool...leaving only my handguard visible...
Posted Image
took about an hour to start the pig...it roar 2 times in the begining...but went dead...i removed the sidecover to the airbox and got shocked that some muds and water has enter and even my K&N airfilter covered with some muds...
did the overflow methods millions of times,drained the carb,and actually last resort is to removed the whole fairing and tank to access to my sparkplug...but as i about to remove the tank,tried another kick...in 2 kicks,the pig roared again and i open the trottle full and let the pig scream...it works...continued the ride although the pig chocking...

Relax at our usual resting place by the waterbreaker
