Just picked-up a 98 XR650L

1 post in this topic

Over the years on this forum, I have been a KTM 520 EXC owner, a KTM DukeII owner, a Suzuki DRZ 400 (highly modified), and as of today after being bikeless for over a year I am back again having just picked-up a used 98 XR650L from a bike shop owner/friend. Its in great shape with 5400 miles on the odo, fresh rubber, the carb mods completed on it, and the stock muffler modified to remove some of the baffles. It runs great, has a nice tone, but isn't overly loud which should bode well with the local authorities.

I was looking for a dual sport that would be user-friendly for 50mile round trip commutes from time-to-time and the XR is much better equipped for the road tasks than my previous 520 EXC or DRZ 400 were. I am fortunate to have some great dual sport riding areas literally right where I live, so the bike will get to see plenty of creek crossings and backroads riding as well as the blue highway treks from time-to-time. I will have to get some pics of the bike posted soon.

Btw-if anyone has any passenger pegs/brackets they want to sell, pm me.

Thanks!!:thumbsup:

Jeff
