Well I throw a pic up just so I can complement you on your bike. My dad had a silver one just like it when I was a wee lad. Very nice ride indeed!:thumbsup:

Thanks for the good words on the XL. :thumbsup:

I got the idea for this from the 400 forum. Its nice to see pics of the XR's instead of conversation.

Plus its a great way to get more cool pics outta you bums!:p:cry:

This belongs to a "Fat Bastard"...

These pics are almost a year old, from my trip to Bonneville Salt flats in 07. My bike is still scared from the salt.

I tried riding out to the "Island" but the salt was just to wet last year.

Broke my foot in April, so yesterday was the first day I had ridden it this year. :thumbsup:

Just bought it a month ago. 1995 XR650L with 4000 miles. Pristine condition with no damage other than a few scratches on the left handguard and tank shroud. Came with White Bro's exhust for $2300 locally in the Pittsbugh area. Didn't need a thing to pass inspection. The only thing I don't like is the purple on the side covers and the headlight shroud. The purple sticker peeled right off the headlight shroud, but the side covers look painted. Gonna try some Krylon paint before I buy white ones. What the hell was Honda thinking with that purple?

Well I put quite a few mods on since I posted here so I thought I'd post a new pic or 2.

It's an 07 XRL I bought new in Sep. 07.

      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...
