Well, had to get some pics of my new PIG in the dirt instead of in a parking lot. The least I could do, I mean I live in Colorado.

Great ride today up in Idaho Springs...... 550 miles on the OD, notice the big ugly temp plate! Got to get rid of that next week.

I hate to fill everyone in. It doesn't matter if we get Osama or McPain- they both will follow whatever orders are given to them by the REAL presidents- the International Bankers. They are simply a puppet provided to us to keep us under the illusion that there is a democracy here. Anyone that does a little homework on the subject will come to realize this. We never left the British Crown at all! Does anyone here know that not one penny of the income taxes we pay in every year goes to pay any politician or to fund any project in this country? Every penny paid in income taxes goes straight to the Federal Reserve bank to pay interest on loans that they have made to our Government!

The Federal Reserve Act turned over power of the government making and controlling money to the private international bankers!!

The IRS is simply a Mafia protection money collector put in place by these same bankers to shake you down and intimidate you into giving up your hard earned money to them.

Anyone out here know that there is NO law that says you have to pay income taxes? Or, that there are DOZENS of former IRS agents that quit their jobs and quit paying taxes because, they too- found out they had been duped into ruining people's lives collecting money in the name of a law that does not exist?

Do some research, people. Google this. Look it up on youtube. You will find soon that it doesn't matter who is "voted" in. They will do whatever they are told to do by these bankers, like the good little slaves they are. (In exchange for a nice, cozy living.)

That is my little piece of the political view that is a lie and a myth.

You, my friend- are the one that is nuts for not doing your own research and finding out that it is the truth.

That is one serious rear tire. What is it? It can't be DOT aproved, just curious.

      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.
