What is the stock HP on the L model and what can it be bumped up to w/ standard mods (jetting, pipe, airbox...)?

Thanx

Im pretty sure stock is about 37.....the pipe alone robs the bike of about 6hp. jetting is another 2 or 3, airbox/filter is another 2 or 3. Hot can will add another 2 to 3 and a good boar and high compression piston will add 2 to 3....unless you bore and stroke it to like 750....that would add a lot. so for about 700 bucks you can bump it up from 37 to about 50.

so - with the snorkel removed and a uni filter, pipe and carbs mods you can expect 10 more HP? seems incredible....

just read about the dynojet kit and they say 5% increase in power, that's like almost 2HP....I would not think you could tell that much difference with only a 2HP gain over stock, yet everyone rave's on the carb mod as being a necessity....

The carb mod helps loads with throttle response and a better running/more adjustable motor. There is a lot more to a motorcycle than how much horsepower it puts out.

A lot of the gain on the L is just getting it to dirt-bike jetting and breathing, so there are a fair number of cheap-HP to be had.

not realy, its like cutting off 90% of the air flow to a fire....with out the air, it doesnt burn worth crap, put a fan to it and i rages. stock the xr650l is literally choking....you just have to open her up. 7 to 10 can be expected from above mods.....depends on pipe and stuff.

Stock Horsepower of the XR650L is 28hp, Uncorked it is 34~36 depending on the modifications. That is horsepower to the rear wheel (Dyno). With a 10.25:1 Weisco piston, cam, header/muffler, pumper carburetor you can get 50rwhp out of a XR650L and still be just as bullet proof. A stock XR600R is 38~42rwhp and most 628cc bikes put out 48hp to the rear wheel.\

Whats really funny is deciding who is worse wr450 or you.

no problem there, but when will somebody correct the b/s instead of adding more to it?

WR450............your masturbatory verbosity in all things motorcycle is indicative of a compulsion to say anything no matter how little thought you’ve chosen to precede those senseless literary ejaculations. ... You are a non-entity.

I can't answer the HP #'s but can tell you how the bike changes with some mods; I just picked up an 05 L and it was very docile to put it mildly. I removed the snorkle and installed a uni filter, jetted to 158 main, 55 slow, removed the smog pump, installed a White Brothers E-series S bend silencer and the bike has been transformed. I can now pull the front end up in the first 3 gears, 1st and 2nd easy, third needs a little coaxing.No chance to do this stock. I was going to regear before the mods but will now leave the sprockets alone. I am very pleased with how this bike now runs :banghead:
