New updated picture. Just put on CRF 450 forks and front wheel. Bought an Emig stem and bush. Only done a short ride, but they feel good, especially under braking.Most importanly they look good :devil: Alos have a bigger Clark tank since last photo.

Next up is a 450 front fender, but only available in red cheaply over here. Need knew side panels. Will be mouting a rack on the back that I got off a board member here. Will need to trim the side panels a tad to fit it.

Want an nicer bar/riser combo and have to make a dash.

During the winter I will have to do a engine rebuild as I thing I have a wrong bushing in the gearbox and the top end is rattley.

Will throw lots of $$$ CW way! New head, cam, rockers and cover.

Before and after! (started with 3500 miles in Jan 2011, and just a few weeks ago i passed 20,000) all of those ~17000 miles have been ridden locally.







smoked some squid on his GSXR750 in a drag race from 0 to 60mph a few days ago (ive been throwing all my $$$ into engine upgrades). once i got to 60, i gently applied my brakes making the brake light come on. lets the guy you just stomped know that you won and your done, and besides, i cant really hold my own against a gsxr750 in a straight line much faster then 70mph anyway. they catch up to you quick and then they got the satisfaction of winning :ride: (lesson is quit while your ahead) :devil:

I haven't been round TT much as of late.

Here is where the Pig is at, at the moment. Looking pretty industrial.

Have to get around to getting some new fenders. Just got the wheels on yesterday.

Not sure what you mean by tach counter. What you see on the front axel is the stock speedo that no longer fits, I ziptied it up so it isn't flopping around while I figure out what I'm gonna do with it

      Well cared for 2001 XR650R for sale.  I am the original owner and bought it new in Feb 2002.  Don't know exactly how many miles are as they didn't come with odometers but I would estimate 5-7K.
      Lots of upgrades including Clark 4.3g tank, Cycra Handguards, Magura oversize bars, excel rims front and back, skid plate, radiator guards and a scotts damper sub mount (mount only), rear disk guard and oversize springs.  I still have the original parts I took off so going back to stock spring rate/gas tank/skidplate/... wouldn't be a problem.
      The bike is 100% ready to ride - chain and sprockets are in good shape, wheel, shock and swingarm bearing are all tight.  Doesn't smoke or leak fluids

      Will the front Maier disc/fork guards for an XR600 work on the 2006 XR650L?

      Suspension setup for a 240-250 lb rider. Extra tall Guts seat foam and gripper seat cover. Garage kept, tires are in good condition. Honda power up kit adds about 10 more horsepower. The bike is not street legal in California. 

      $3000 or best offer

      Sorry all.  I'm sure there is plenty of info on the forum regarding this topic already, but I am apparently challenged when it comes to searching.  I do not know much about jetting but have been researching and readying about the "Dave's Mods" and am confident i  can handle that and plan to do it to the bike shortly after i get it (couple weeks away).  The bike is completely stock presently with very low miles (just over 100).  Question is this:  I don't plan any internal engine mods but I do plan to de-smog right away.  When $$ permits I plan to do the following all at once:  Uni filter and remove snorkle; FMF Q4 (possibly with the stock headpipe or power bomb); Dave's mods to carb.  Like i said I do not know much about jetting but I did have installed a dynojet kit in my Brute Force when i put on the new muffler and filer.  I see they have a Stage I and Stage II available that would appear to fit the bill in my case.   Which one should i go with?  I am looking more for proper jetting with the increased air flow and to correct the lien issue than I am for shear power.  Also, would I be better off just ordering the specific jets as i have seen elswhere on the forum from jetsrus or whatever the site is?  I will ride primarily Indiana, Wisconsin and Michigan so no crazy elevations to consider.   Thanks in advance for helping out an old guy new to the forum!

      Hello All,
      I recently started a project where I purchased a 1987 Honda XL600R basket case.  The engine required too much to repair it, so I purchased a 1987 XR600R solely for the engine.  I have already mounted the XR engine into the XL frame, see the images below.
      This is not my first rodeo, plus I have an Electro-mechanical Engineering background.  I am seeking advice from experienced persons that have done this engine swap in the past and what needs to be done that i might have overlooked.
      The engine is currently mounted, has spark and clean carbs installed.  Need an o-ring that I ordered to button up the oil lines.  Then I can fill with oil and gas to lit up the XR engine, which is basically stock at this point.
      Here's what I got and I think needs to be done:
      XR Motor with the XR Carbs Will be using stock XL airbox. Will be using stock XL exhaust system. Swap XR Stator with XL Stator.  Will I need to swap the rotors too? Will need a new rear sprocket and chain.  Any recommendations on the number of teeth I should use on the rear with this motor? Will be needing a set of new tires too.  Any recommendations on tires for street, trail, and dirt riding? Any advice will be helpful and appreciated to help save me some time and this old girl back on the road sooner.
