Had the XR out to stretch her legs over the long weekend. I did two day 600km "off road" loop with some friends from the local dualsport forum

Did a few mods to the 6honey.

Since acerbis wants $110 for reinforced hand guards and cycra wants $95 I got $40 msr bare guards and $15 cycra replacement and mounted em up by drilling and tapping a couple m5x.80 holes great fit and WAAAAY cheaper

Also added a fmf powercore4 the other day and soon to be a powerbomb header. Also threw on a 45t Renthal to make it a bit more highway comfy.

Also I learned since I like my wheelbase shorter for the trails, I usually cut my chains to make it so it's perfectly adjusted at #3 on the snails. By doing this you can swap a smaller sprocket and not have to swap chains! I have a 48t Renthal twinning for trail and single track and this 45t for cruising streets or long rides. That with a 15t front makes it very comfortable at higher speeds.

Ryler, what kind of tires are you running, how have they been holding up on the road and how are they off road? Have the been on the bike long?

I have a Motoz tractionator h/t up front and a maxis desert IT in the rear. I'm not throttle happy at all on the street but they do very well on the twistes heading up to big bear and handle well on the highway too. Dirt they are amazing. The maxis has a very thick carcass so it's very puncture resistant and the Motoz has never slid on me even blasting hard pack with sand on top. Even though the Maxxis is not DOT rated, it's one of the most reliable and predictable knobby I've ever ridden. And they hold up great. The tractionator has given me about 3500 miles so far and still good tread and the desert IT has only about 800 miles on it with lots of slab and it's wearing like iron. I've been using this tire combo for the past year and only changed tires once. Also I am a daily rider as I use my pig for commuting and running around town. Edited by RylerTust

Awesome! Just get your own hardware and a tap and the right drill bit cause the hardware that comes with the hand guards is junky. I only used the washers. I used a M5x.80 tap and an 11/64ths bit I think.

One pic before getting loaded up for a weekend in the Mendocino National Forest! Not much new other than a nice new clean seat off ebay and a new fender bag. Although I've told myself this before, this is the LAST ride before the teardown to do the Crank and new sleeve and 100mm piston. Last Ride I swear. :)

      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?
    • By Black Mesa Offroad
      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.
