:ride: I just bought a 06 xr650L, and it is awesome, i read some post before talking about its too heavy and doesnt have enough power, well yes it is heavy, but it has plenty power. I also have a kawasaki zx10R and that bike has got some power, so i know a bike with power when i see it. This bike has plenty of get up and go. and no its not cause im a light weight, I weigh 216 lbs as of yesterday and it hauls me around no problem. It is very nimble at its weight once you get going i couldnt tell it weighed soo much. SO Im gonna leave yall with this, This bike has plenty power even though it supposebly has 35hp. At my 216pounds, i did a wheelid just by giving a hand full of gas. I will take picstomorrow when its light. Peace. XR650L!!!
