Hi guys,

I live in Angola and bought in 2009 a XR650R 2007...also the happy owner of a Ktm 950 Adv 2004.

I´ve been riding it in some raids...and for fun at the weekends.

I've mount CRF fork, a CRF triple clamp adapted for XR, Magura EX, Polisport UFX front fender, Polisport MMX headlight, pro circuit exhaust, and new foot pegs.

The wind screen is a slipstreamer spit fire universal. I do ride with the shifter that low it hasen't presented a problem because I don't wear my MX boots and my feet are only 8 1/2 so I have just left it alone now that you point it out though I think I am gonna raise it because it looks way to low :)

Just looks in danger..LOL My big ass feet would never catch it. I use to ride Pike Natl Forest (RRMC) on my XT back in the day, Mt Evans, just every where. My XRL is my first DS since Colorado. Why? I have no freakin idea. I ride the piss out of this 650L. I rode my 200SX KTM for the first time in a month yesterday..LOL

The XRLs definitely lack in the throttle snap category. I think the three ton flywheel has a lot to do with it. It takes a while to get all that mass spinning.... of course it is a tractor once you get it spinning.

Yep next time I have the seat off I will take some pics. I chopped a LOT of the fender off with my Dremel. Basicly left the two side bolt holes that mount to the XR frame and enough "meat" on top under the seat to bolt through the top of that metal arch under the seat. The back 5" of the two frame tubes are chopped off. You basicly jam the fender in there, figure out where it needs to sit, and then start cutting away everything you dont need. Its easy to do, just takes some time.

That 83 is HOT!

I've been having a ton of fun with my bike since its rebuild. Went out with a group of buddies in the los padres national forest (big sur Ca) and put down 190 miles on sunday. :) Snapped a couple pics. It was a good day indeed!

I made the rear section out of wood to fit things up. I am going to make a real one out of Metal now. I love how bright the Multi LED light is! I have baby turn sigs as well..

      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.
