Building the "Ultimate" 650L?

10 posts in this topic

What mods would you do to turn the XR650L into the best bike it could be, without getting a 650R and putting 650L stickers on it :applause:

On mine, I've done alot of stuff to it, but haven't touched the motor or suspension.

Here is my list so far.

2002 XR650L:

Clarke 4.7 gallon tank

Pro Moto Billet Rack

Tag Metals X5 CR 2-hi bend bars

Moose brush guards

Pro grip 792 grips, aftermarket mirrors

14-48 gearing with parts unlimited X ring chain

Dunlop D606's

Moose heavy duty tubes

Moose aluminum bash guard

Acerbis taillight ( junk )

UNI filter

Moose roll chart holder

Ram mount & Magellen Meridian Gold GPS

Moose Dual Sport fender bag

Dirt bike gear number plate bag.

Thats all I can think of now..

Parts on my ultimate list are

W.E.R. or Scotts steering dampner

Fork brace

Aftermarket Seat

Oil cooler?

What else is there? What can you do to the motor?

is there a big bore kit and cam? New carb? And what about that suspension?

Whats on your list, or what suggestions do you have. I want this bike to remain reliable, but have POWER!

Weisco 10.25:1 Piston, Stage two cam, FCR 41mm carburetor, that will give you 50hp to the rear wheel. 12hp gain! Heavy duty clutch springs, shock and fork springs for your weight, You need to get an idea of how much air you will/can/might get and then have a talk with a suspension guy to get a setup on the valving.

Hmm..I forgot about exhaust. Is there any good full systems or is a slip on the way to go. I want to be able to meet the noise requirements, but have that cool thumper sound. For slip ons I was thinking about the Supertrap ISD2, mainly because its cheap and tuneable.

50hp, yeah, thats what I'm talking about! I'll have to go talk to the local motor guru and see what he thinks.

I'm not planning on getting air, but I am planning on riding fast on rocky trails, thats what I need the suspension for.

the Supertrapp IDS2 with the quiet core seems to be about the same noise level as my stock pipe ... not tested as such, but thats what my ear says .. also, very good construction, I was impressed ... not that big a difference in HP gains on the tests I've read, but WAY cheaper than the ones that topped the list :applause:

Anyone know of a website where I can look at the motor parts like the cam and Carb?

I would reccomend a White Bros E Series Pipe, and add Uni Filter while also drilling slide and jetting for your altitude...very strong mod for power.

That and more is my ride excat. Start with the susp. 1st get a fork brace then revalve, oil & spring front & rear. Then move to the motor, oh after the basic uncorking of course!

If you were to do the motor mods piston etc I think you would w ant to do more than just put a slipon you would want an entire system.
