my dad has a 2003 xr650l and he wants to mod it. what are the BEST choices when it comes to exhaust , jetting, tires, etc. he just wants to make this thing a little nastier in the dirt, but also able to ride on the street.

thanks

Keihin jets and shimming the needle work better than the dynojet kit.

I've done both.

Don't forget to drill the slide!

Also getting rid of that heavy little metal tank and replacing it with a lighter plastic tank is a verygood and very much worth it mod. :naughty: I would recommend the clarke but i heard the ims is good too. :naughty:

If he doesn't want to replace the CV carburetor (going to a pumper like the edelbrock is a huge difference) then he can fix the carburetor by fallowing this link:XR65L CV Carburetor Fix CLICK HERE: :) Adjust the valves get a UNI air filter. Any header/muffler will help.

Have him get a Tera Flex, it DOT (for the street also) and the biggest nastiest tire he can put on the bike.

where can i get an edelbrock carb for the cheapest price. is it pretty much just a bolt on? do i need to make any other modifications to the bike after putting on the edelbrock?

If you get an aftermarket tank, which you should really think about, get the natural color. You can see the fuel level and it matches the white number plates really good. It kinda breaks up all the red.
