just picked up a 03 XR650L yesterday. has 3K mi, clarke tank, and white bros pipe. got it for $4K. the dealer wants $7K for a new one in AK. used ones are everywhere in the lower 48, but hard to find up here. the 700mi trip from fairbanks to anchorage was tough, but nice through the denali range. learned alot from reading on this site already, thanks. future necessities planned: 48 rear sprocket, 55 pilot and 165 main jets, dunlop 606 on both, acerbis rally pro handguards, renthal YZF450 atv bars, desmog, carb/airbox mods. got a 60mi drive to work, with gravel roads for 5mi. trails everywhere, but a lot of muskeg. past bikes: 89 YZ125, 91 DR250S, and the 90 sportster bobber. cheers.
