Your right, that bike can be a hand full. What type of riding do you do? How tall are you and what is your weight? For open riding, that is an awsome bike and is tough to beat. Do you ride desert? :cool:

Also you should post in the bike specific forum to get some good info...

If you like straight and fast, you bought the right bike. I had two of these once. The XR650R will eat ANY Japanese 650cc bike for lunch. There's no comparison. They're nothing like the 650L or the DR650.

I actually sold mine because it was just too big and heavy for single track trails. Also, it went too fast and scared me too much on long flats. It was totally stable at high speed but I just don't need that much speed anymore.

Yes Jetmoto you made a mistake!! You need something smaller like an XR250R which your in luck because I happen to have one and I guess I could use another 650R so let me know when you want to trade??:cool:
Just kidding!! Grab the bars on that thing and learn the power curve through the throttle! Remember that the bike will only go as fast as your wrist will allow and the power is smooth on the 650 so theres no abrupt hit to worry about. The best thing to remember when learning on any bike is to treat it with respect and do not ride timid because that will get you hurt! Have fun with your R because its a blast. I take mine eveywhere I ride my CR250 and it does great even on the very techy singletrack.

If it has the power up full HRC kit that thing will be an animal!!

If it has the manifold and other uncorking mods it will still be way fast.

The full kit is like 1200.$ not too many bikes have this.
Every time i get on a 250 2-s they feel like a 125. You have to shift 3 times to get them moving compared to the 650r. YAHOOO !!!!

Do you know if it has the hrc piston and cam? Iv'e got an itch to put a kit in mine.So i'm taking notes on everyone that has one.
Love the power on mine but the rotten 450f(s) will give ya fits in the tight sand washes.

I'm really not sure other than seat of the pants dyno with a known stock motor..the cam is hard to even see with the tappet covers off,maybe a compression test??? If you have a way to do a comp check I'll do mine too so to give an idea of what ya have.

Stock uncorked XR650R will give you 44rwhp and a HRC XR650R will give you 52rwhp with the exhaust mods you have.
