Just picked up a plated 96 XR. This is my 7th XR/XRL I've had over the years. These bikes were so maligned when the 650R came out. Been there done that. I had my 650R motor tuned to perfection and it was fast as hell but the bike never felt as good as my 600's. And they're lighter! Happy to be "back". Thanks for all the good setup info on the site. First I'll set it up for dirt, then the master plan is for a set of supermoto wheels to tear up the street.
