did u have to lengthen any cables or wires?

I am 6'4" also and was contemplating the risers myself just bought mine a week ago + also

thx Z

I did replace the clutch cable. When I had the bars turned all the way to the right it wouldn't pull very well. The new one was a few inches longer and works great. Everything else is fine, the choke cable came out of the routing bracket on the frame, but doesn't really matter. Brakes are fine.

Here she is - Piggy Sue, named to honor both Buddy Holly and Jim Henson. This was taken last year after her mud baptism in the Daniel Boone National Forest. It was also a trial run for the 276mm Africa Twin brake disc and the Baker Precision transmission oil cooler (which still needs some sort of guard).

Pigs like to roll in the mud.

here is mine, 680 high compression piston, ported head hot cam jetted carb de smogged uni filter and gutted air box, header and pro circuit t4 muffler, titanium valve springs, ummm a few other goodies. need to start cleaning her up and get the new chain and sprockets on. also need to wear this tire out on the back and get something a little more aggressive.

the first one is the day I got it before the motor blew and with the old back tire.

Here is my 96 650L after finishing my frame up restoration. USD front end conversion, powder coat frame, etc.

I like the early style side plates.  I have had them off and on my 02 a few times, but didn't like the way they fit with the seat.  I am contemplating modding the seat base to be straighter to better match up.

I used the old style plates after removing the battery box. I didn't like having the left side plate sticking way out there when there wasn't anything underneath. I meant to order a newer side plate for the 600, but somehow got them mixed up.

Now that I have two of them, I may as well show them, plus my KTM:

Rode all three of them (with my two sons on the Hondas) up to the top of Sierra Buttes on Tuesday:

Who makes those footpegs?

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 swapped in a cush wheel on my XRl so I have this Warp 9 wheel up for sale.  Straight, no dents.  The hub is drilled to accept the XRl sprocket.  Just bolt it on and go.  $375.00 shipped to the lower 48.

      Can anyone explain to me why the mid-pipe on certain XR600R/XR650L exhausts gets substantially bigger before attaching to the muffler? In most cases it is actually the same size as the muffler where it attaches. The XR's only mufflers are a great example of this and so is my White Brothers E series muffler. On the other hand you have the more traditional mid-pipe shape from companies like FMF for the same XR600R. The midpipe is relatively the same size from the header to the muffler connection. Even high performance street bikes use this approach so why is it different with the big single?
      I've been looking at replacing my White Brothers muffler lately because it doesn't have the discs nor the backing plate to make it USFS approved. I've been back and forth between the FMF Powercore 4 and the xr's only mufflers. I was wondering if the odd mid-pipe shape helps the XR's only mufflers flow better. From what I've read the XR's only mufflers are stupid loud and that would warrant a quiet insert for me and thus choking the high flow muffler, right?
      Also, for anyone wondering- the White Brothers header that was installed on my XR600R is VERY CLOSE to the same dimensions as an XR's only header at both the cylinder and mid-pipe connection.

      Hey guys, Just came across all of these old school slide shows. They take awhile to record and upload to youtube. But I'm trying to get the good ones done first. Full of info and fun to watch. This one is all off road models cr500r cr250r cr125r cr80r cr60r as well as xr200 xr250 and xl600r. Also there is a test at the end of part 2 so make sure you study hahah.
      part 1
      part 2
      I'm about to do another from 84 street bikes  going to be fun
      enjoy!

      So I ordered .47 fork springs and 11.5 rear spring for my xr600r from XR's only. And I bought the race tech suspension bible. So far I can't find any talk about what people have done for shim stacks or other fork mods. I have ideas about what I think I should do but why experiment if there is a known good starting point.  I revalved  my ranger about 10 years ago and I remember finding a lot of info online to help me with a starting point.
      I'm 6'2 230lb. The bike is plush now but  bottoms bad when I get in the whoops and I blew out the bearing for the rear shock last ride. 
      Any tips or tricks ? I'm not that great of a rider and no suspension expert but I'm pretty sure it can be set up better for me.  I hoped the race tech "bible" would have some info in it but it seems like more of a sales tool for the gold valves...
