Used XR650L question !

Looking at a 2003 xrl with low miles....so my question is ..Were there any changes made between an '03 and '07 or any changes among any other years made. Thank You in advance !!!

Welccome to TT.

The only changes since 2000, and possibly earlier models where the graphics and seat cover colors, thats it! There was a carburetor change in 2004 I believe, but that is irrellevant, more of an update. 1993-2007 models are all mechanically the same with the addition of the smog pump crap in 1999, I believe.

I reccomend buying a totally stock bike with the exeption of the tires, that way you know exactly what you have, also the odds of it being run really hard are less. I purchased an all stock bike with 3000 miles on the odemeter for $2800, the bike is now modded the way I want it and has over 11000 miles and runs great. I was planning on a new top end at 15000 miles but will probably wait till around 20000 miles maybe a bit longer. These are great bikes that really last, as long as the oil is changed on a regular basis. Generally every 1000 miles or less! good luck let us know if you decide to join the club!

The earlier models had more grease fittings. Prior to 96.
