99 XR650L noise

Recommended Posts

Just picked up a 4500 mile XR650L - the P.O. stopped riding it when it developed a sort of grinding sound in 1st and 2nd gear.

I'm thinking it might be a bent shift fork?

Thanks

So apparently the only way to know for sure is to take the engine apart and open up the transmission.

So the bigger question is what else do you want to do to it while you're in there?

Consider changing 2nd gear and maybe 5th with the ones from the NX.

Do you want to do anything with the piston, head, cams?

Good luck with it.

It's not just something cracked and vibrating, is it?

Or a loose bunch of engine mount bolts?

 

Try revving it in neutral.
