Need advice on buying used 04' XR650L

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


I'm looking at a used one this afternoon with 7800 miles for $4700 with the usual mods..rejet, exhaust etc.  Are there any model specific problems I should look out for? I'm coming off a DRZ so I have some experience with thumpers.  From what I've read the bike reviews say its a solid bike. thanks

Yep. I bought the bike. It's so damn clean.  The only thing I don't like is the previous owner painted a bunch of the parts red...so ugly, but an easy fix. 


 Wow! What a difference in power over my DRZ400.


So far in the past week I've added:


Oxford adventure heated grips (good to commute with here in the winter)

7/8" to fat bar adatper and some taller bars

Bark Buster VPS handguards

SW Motech Rack The bike has already been uncorked and has a FMF Q slip on.  I will also do the header pipe..eventually. 


Up coming Mods:


FMF header pipe

DAve's carb mods

Mosko Scout saddlebags (these things are AMAZING!)

case protectors

temp gauge dip stick

subframe re-enforcement brackets

Acerbis 5.8G tank

Mark 3 Pivot Pegs (stock pegs are shiiiiite)

XR 250 tail light

Brittania Lynx R fairing with 55w HID projector low beam paired with a 42w Baja Designs LED High Beam

RAM mount for Delorme Inreach SE GPS locator 

RAM mount for GPS T.B.D.
