Wanted......Stock XR650R Shock Spring

Hey guys. Does anybody have a stock rear spring they are wanting to get rid of? My bike has a Eibach on it set up for a 225 pounder and I'm about 185 with gear. I tried to get my sag set correctly and I ran out of spring length before I could get 100mm of sag. So......looks like I need a lighter spring!

I'll even swap somebody out if they need a stiffer spring. I'd have to check and see what rate Eibach is on it though.



Im getting ready to pull mine out, need to swap it for a 12 eibach (280lb rider), I can set you up with it once i get it out, i just dont know when Im going to get it set up..

Brett :)


That would be great, let me know when you get it done and I'll be happy to buy it off you. Maybe we can hook up for a ride since I'm in Seal Beach. I'm always riding solo down here!

Here's my e-mail davidrainey@earthlink.net

Do you happen to know exactly which Eibach it is? I'm 225 - 230 and am looking for one. Would be happy to take it off your hands for a reasonable price or if the other trade doesn't work out do a swap for my stock spring.

i will trade you my stock spring for your spring and give yours to dan :) my stock spring is out of my bike in a box in the garage - the only thing i ask is dan comes by and gets the spring and sets up the rest with you.

      Changing out my fork oil on a new to me 650l. What's generally recommended for stock springs and valving?

      So I don't seem to find my specific issue so here I am asking. 
      I have a 1997 Xr600r. It was recently re-jetted and has ran really well ever since until more recently it has begun to have this issue.
      Everything works fine. Kicks right away, nice and easy. Runs great, sounds great, purs. But when I'm downshifting and slowing down to a stop, if I let my hand off the throttle that's when it just dies. I found that I can counter this by lightly holding the throttle as I down shift (so I'm revving quite a bit during downshift).  But it hadn't done this before. 
      The only thing I've done that I suspect may have been an issue on my part was when I pulled out the engine to change the valve cover gasket and upon doing so perhaps when connecting the carb back to it, I may have missed something or made a crack in the boot? 
      Any ideas? Thanks

      Hello all,
      There's been a lot of talk about how to register a dirt bike in states that don't allow it.
      I just moved to North Carolina and for the first time in my life might be able to afford a bike. I've been dreaming about an XR650R for a long time, but they're not cheap. Plated bikes seem to be more expensive too. So here's my question, has anyone tried to plate a dirt bike by adding all the necessary features and having it inspected as a custom bike? Anyone know of another way I can plate an xr650 in NC?

      Hoping for some help before I throw in the towel and end it all!
      Engine starts fine, runs and idles well for +/- 10 minutes, but cuts out while riding once the engine warms up (175 - 185) and intermittently cuts out thereafter (any speed/gear). It will start up after 30 seconds or so (but won't run for long before dying again). No spurting or surging.. just dies.
      I've replaced CDI (twice), Spark plug, spark wire and coil, and most recently pulse generator. I do have a 41mm Flat side carb from a CRF (and it has more power than the old carb setup), breathing through a Uni filter. Also, sealed battery tender battery (hasn't shown low when trickle charged).
      What's next on the test/replace list? Stator maybe? Please help...
