XR650R and XR400 questions

13 posts in this topic

Hey Guys...

The local dealer has the XR650R (2003) for $4,899 OTD. How good of a deal is this?

Also,

I have a Friend who is considering the XR400 instead ($5,100 OTD 2004). I think his main reason is the weight difference (he is kind of a puss :naughty: ).

I would appreciate any input.

Thanx

Anything under $5000 OTD for a new bike is a good price!

Tell the dealer to give you the uncorking kit at cost and throw in a free valve adjustment and oil change at 300 miles. :naughty:

In 03 the oTD price was $4999.00. Go for it. Just fix the right footpeg right off the bat and have the Honda Power Up kit installed.. Everything esle should be fine. Steny :naughty:

Get the 650R. Dry weight is only 20lbs. more than the 400. It's about 30 or so lbs. heavier with all fluids. For 250 more cc's you can't complain about the weight. Plus that 400 will ping like crazy in the summer heat while the "liquid cooled" 650R will just cruise along, uncored of course. However, there are some benefits to air cooling when it comes to stray sticks..but I'll take my chances.

If you are grinning now, wait until you uncork it (jets, airbox plugs removed, non-EPA manifold, exhaust tip drilled out or replaced) :naughty:

Tim is there any truth to the magazine articles which said that if you should get that proverbial stick through your radiator that the XR650R still runs cooler with no water than the air/oil cooled XR600?
