XR650L Graphics?

I just bought a 06 650L. Waiting for delivery on 6 sept. Ive been looking at Mods for it all ready. Taillight conversion, smog block off, pipes, bars. I plan on reducing the weight and trying to get some more power out of it. Any suggestions. I also want to put a graphics kit on it so it wont look like every other one out there. Anyone know where to get one? Thanks

Graphics...I've yet to find a set..I bought some generic honda stuff but since took it off....goin' minimalist!

Everything you mentioned so far is a must...DO NOT forget about a rejet and a pipe the stock header is actually pretty decent, I changed it and only got 1 more HP on the dyno. Ohh, don't forget a free-flow filter like a UNI...Let 'er breathe!

I'm assuming you'll be riding more dirt than street??? If so, consider gearing 14 front/48rear are a big improvement for trail riding.

The Clarke 4.7 gallon tank is also a nice choice.

TIRES are a MUST! Don't even waste your time or risk your ass riding off road with the crap they come with. I run a bridgestone DOT Knobby front and a terraFlex DOT rear(Monster of a tire).

Have fun..these bikes are a blast when you get them right! Good luck with it!

Definitely know the feeling, better than Xmas.

A picture is always worth more than words. :D

Check out One Industries. They make all sorts of graphics kits. Make sure you get perforated decals. Non-perfs will bubble on "pourus" plastic tanks...:D

Supertrapp IDS2 w/7 discs, no smog, jetted, slide drilled, needle shimmed, Uni-air, de-snorkled, BD bash plate, Clarke 4.0, Renthal CR-Hi bars, 15-45 street & 14-45 dirt, DOT knobs, Burley pegs, cs cover ovals cut out, Acerbis fork/disc guard, front fender bobbed, bored & screened, head light rock guard, Maier XR style tail/brake light conversion, magnetic drain plug, all safetys bypassed, full synthetic & lowered.

HEY! congratulations! i bought the first 2006 xr650L i could find and i love it! i will admit that i was a bit disappointed at how choked down it was from the factory,but it is uncorked with the standard mods that you read about on these forums and brother,it is a whole new bike now! the first thing you need to do is the standard carb mods and foam air filter,it will make the most difference...enjoy,enjoy!!

Add some stainless brake lines. Gaffer from rocky mountain.
