after (well, not done yet, but close):


Are those avons on the before pics and if so how did you like them. Also was it worth the price for the 17" I would like to add a fork brace to mine when I get the cash.

Bike is looking good:thumbsup:

Also where did you end up getting you wheels?

They are Pirelli MT 90 Scorpion A/T Enduros, I liked them on asphalt dry and wet, not sure about off road, most likely performs good on hard pack and gravel, not so good in mud and sand. I would buy them again for sure. :banana:

The fork brace is already on its way :lol:

Wheels and rotor are from Ebay as a set for the XR650L, the front fit good (except the rotor is way to big for the caliper, it did not just slide in, I had to take it apart, install the wheel with the rotor, then install the caliper onto the rotor, also lost the speedo/odo, the new hub does not come with the connector piece for the speedo connector). The spacers for the rear were the wrong size, the inside diameter was bigger the the actual rear axle, I had to find a machine shop to make me a correct sized ones. Even with those the rear rotor bolts hit the rear brake caliper (they aren't flushed), so the rear was a struggle, but at the end it works.

I obviously have the best looking bike (Known as The Riot) by far judging by all these pics (The Riot is the one with the handle bar muffs!).:lol: But the climate where I live seems to suck compared with where you guys are at!!

      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

      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...

      I recently bought a Honda XR650L 2017! im looking to upgrade it quite a bit! So far i got ProTaper handle bars...which is a must and i think i need bigger pegs (my boots are MX boots) ,full exhaust? Or just muffler? Alsoi want to rejet it and anything else? I ride in Nevada n going to be riding in SoCal. But i would love to know what other XRL owners have done that they loved! Racks and or anything helps ... Have a pretty nice size budget but love good deals! 
      Question=does it use metric or standard tools? My dad just got a 2017 KTM690R enduro and we ride together and his tools dont fit my bike?
