New to me today. '06 650l with 6000 miles. Needs a rear tire and some cleaning but runs great! $2300 seemed like a pretty good deal. Now to go look at more bikes to decide what to do next:banana:

Not as nice as many in here, but here's my ride... :lol:

Picked up my '86 XR600R cheap, it was ugly! Here's before and after...

It's got a fresh rebuild, with new crank, Wiseco piston and rings, fresh bore and hone, new valve seals, valve seats reworked, etc. Second gear was broken, so it got a "new" used tranny from another engine. It could still use a rear tire, but that one will do for now... :thumbsup:

Here´s a few pictures of my new BRP. They are extremely rare and hard to find here in Norway, so I´m very pleased as I managed to pick up one in mint condition, only 5000 km on it. It came with both motard and enduro wheels, Big Gun exhaust, and HRC stage 1 kit installed. Starts easy, and runs great. I couldn´t be happier!

Add a Fcr 41 carb and a UPSD fork.You want regret it.

If you have interest in a good UPSD fork already adapted to the 650R (and street use) shoot me a Pm. I'm in Europe. :worthy:

And ? Good or bad?

The carburettor is tuned in for the original exhaust, so it might not be optimal for the arrow.

I think the top-end became better, feels lik it pulls harder an longer in each gear. Might be that I lost som bottom-end power, but I really don't know for sure.

It gets 4/5, good finish and sound/power.

You have to rejet to bring the low end back.Try a 68S pilot and a 180 main(or bigger depending on the temp/other mods) as a start.You can ad the airbox mod and the Twin Air filter system (filter + screen), you prob. need the 70S than. If you want real modern world power install a Keihin fcr. :worthy:

I'm seriously thinking about putting my stock wheels and knobbies back on for the Summer. There's so many dirt roads around here that the temptation to get dirty is irresistible. :worthy::lol: :lol:

      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.
