Smicer that looks like there is some awesome riding in Singapore. How fun is all that mud with those DS tires?

I keep on coming back to your pics....totally makes me want to grab a XRR and just ride! Whats sort of mods are done to the 650? It really looks sharp. How big and what kind of range are you getting with the aftermarket tank?

Harv get yourself one of those XRR's! You wont regret it:thumbsup: There are a few mods on the bike. Barnum suspension, Stock motor with Edel.carb, Akropovic exhaust, open airbox, 200w stator. Theres lots of BRP stuff and Xronly parts. You can add and change so many parts on these bikes to make them better but other than uncorking the exhaust and fixing the right peg problem they are pretty much good to go stock. The 4.3 Clarke tank will let you go along way on a tank of gas. My bike does not get great mileage. I have never really paid attention on exactly how far I can get on one tank. Most of the time I will just go and go until I notice the fuel level is low enough to start concerning me and thats when I head for a gas station or back towards civilization. Im really bad about going way out into nowhere and only realizing I may need some fuel after I have ventured into no mans land where there is nothing but desert , reptiles and me.

If you need any info feel free to PM me. I better throw in a pic so I dont get into trouble for chat'n on the pic thread:thumbsup:

This is my Piggy before the crash I had a week ago.



This is where she is as of today. UFO fenders, Pro-Circuit T4 exhaust, Ricky Stator 200W stator, GPR steering damp, Fatbars, Fluidyne rad's.




Still waiting on some other parts to arrive. Namely and IMS 4.6 gallon tank, new shrouds, rear side plates, and a few other mods. Will have the Hotcams stage 1 kit installed in the next couple of weeks. Thanks, "Q"

Nice pair of 86's the 600R looks mint. You will love that bike. I would like to see Honda come out with a red white & blue XR650R with red engine and all.

Here is my 86

      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.
