Can't come close to that scenery so here is my hog in front of the barn. Brought it out to see the light of day and get a breath of fresh air. Hope this last snow storm was THE LAST SNOW STORM! I'm getting an itchy throttle hand. :eek:

Mine's an 07, with 4K on it. Clark tank, Acerbis rear light, Pro Taper CR highs, FMF Q2, Dave's Mods, cleaned out air box with a K/N. Strictly street. Might go 17's by the end of summer. That is if I can convince the "Better Half" that I really, really, REALLY have to have them. :thumbsup: Later, OGB

Thanks, I have owned it since it was new and I did a ground up restoration twice. The white paint is a perl white and the blue is a darker matalic than original. The stainless pipe was off of my XR600 but with a little modification it fit. Here is another photo of me riding the Dragon, I only ride it on the street now, but when I first got it I put alot of hard trail miles on it.

Here is my main ride now. 02 XR650R I put the stock pipe back on after I had it ceramic coated (didnt like the Big Gun) and when I first got it I put the forks & wheel from a CRF450 and made it street legal. Now I am thinking of puting the stock carb back on.

Welcome to TT! :eek:

Where did you get the ceramic coating done and how much would something like that cost. If you don't mind me asking. Looks nice. :thumbsup:

Where was that first pic taken?

I had the pipe done at Jet-Hot and it was a lot of money and had more orange peel that it should have. If I hade a bigger oven I would have done it myself. the first picture was taken at an over look on the blueride parkway in NC. I had climed that looking glass rock many times as a kid.

Heres a few pics of my morning ride. There are some fun rock chutes and climbs in this loop and its great that I can ride out my door and loop totally around the backside of Vegas and rarely see another person. The last pic is of my Pickup and my bike. I know it needs a paint job but you cant beat a good ole Ford truck:thumbsup: 100_2292.jpg100_2294.jpg100_2296.jpg100_2290.jpg100_2305.jpg

      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.
