Great pics..:confused:

I noticed you burned about 1/3 of a tank between the first and last pic...

How long is your loop??

The loop I did this morning was not but a little over 35 miles but it was alot of slow technical riding. The gas probably was in the left side of the tank in some of the pics so thats why it looks like I used more fuel than I actually did. Thats the only draw back of the larger capacity tanks is the gas will stay on the none petcock side and sometimes you have to lean it over to get the gas to the other side. Theres much bigger rides out here but sometime I dont have the time to go any longer so I make smaller loops so I stay in good with the Mrs.!!

I dont want to turn into a picture ho on here so let me know if I become a PPP (picture posting pig). It's just I know you guys appreciate good riding and terrain photos where my wife just pats me on the head like a puppy and says "thats nice dear" when I get home from a killer ride and Im totally amp'd about my morning adventure. The weather was killer this morning with snow on all the mtn. ranges around Vegas so it made for a few killer pics. This is my backyard trail that is my quick escape away from the city. 100_2315.jpg100_2310.jpg100_2324.jpg

Nice L Redrider. You didn't mention Jets. How are you running aftermarket exhaust, air filter, and desnorkelled without jets?

Nice job on the oil cooler Mrfixit.

Lots of cool pigs in this thread. :confused: The photo bucket pics don't last long it seems though.

I'm not sure what jets I should be running, I've been reading up on posts but not sure what I should do. I was planning on putting a Mikuni 42mm Pumper Carb on it but don't know if its worth it.

I did Daves mods, but with a 160 main jet. It was running a tad rich at WOT so I vented the side panel to the airbox and it's PERFECT.:confused:

      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.
