Hiyall am a xr650 forum newbie. Have owned 6 xr600 and 3 cr5hundies currently have an 01 cr500 that is waiting for a cr or crf donor chassis and then the forks and shock from the 500 will go on my new 06 xr650r but till then i will keep working away at the BRP to get her lighter and handling better.Lightness is the key for me i want to shed as much weight as is possible don't care what it costs,so if you have a tip tell me about it. Am an Australian you guys might remember us maybe not ,anyway we fought beside you guys in ww1 and ww2,Korea,Vietnam,Afghanistan and Iraq and a few other UN police actions we seem to work well with you guys.But you guys always have the best toys our military can't afford too much good stuff. Anyway just bought a new xr650 am stupified with how it reacts to minor changes and mods.Yes it is uncorked all the way with the sidepanel cut out by Honda Australia. This bike is a bit special as it was supposed to go to the fellow who heads Honda's Enduro efforts in Australia,stock but the jetting and a few other things are spot on.Evedrything was greased and pulled the forks about and it was sans whale snot they had spent some time on it. Shoot sorry for rambling anyway hi guys and feel free to respond to this one.
