My life is complete once again. Nearly 6 weeks ago tragedy struck, my 3-month old Toyota Tundra with two XR650Ls in the back was stolen out of my driveway. My buddy and I loaded the night before for an early start the next day to a dual sport event. My wife said it best when she stated that everything most important in my life, materialistically speaking of course, was taken in an instant. The truck was replaced, my buddy's bike was found in good shape, but mine is still missing. Couldn't take it anymore and bought a mechanically sound, cosmetically challenged 2001 XR650R. I had been intrigued with the R ever since I bought the L so I went for it this time. Bike is plated and I'm ready to start the overhaul. Ordered so far: fenders, graphics, hand guards, handle bars, grips, pipe. To do: Confirm the bike has been properly uncorked. I live in the northwest near sea level. It looks like to me I should be using 172 main, 68s pilot, and B53 needle on the third click. Would appreciate confirmation. Considering: Desert tank, heated grips. The bike has the baja designs dual sport kit, but I am unsure about the status of the stator. Will I have problems operating the lights in conjunction with the heated grips if I have the stock stator? I am very familiar with the L but am learning about the R. Any recommendation from the experts regarding items I should inspect during my teardown I would appreciate. My motorcycle almost gives me as much enjoyment when thinking about riding as I feel when actually on my bike.
