What preformance mods 650R?

What kind of mods are people doing and what do they like and dislike? keep in mind I ride tight woods rides. I have powered up my bike,new DOT tires, new headlight (thanks tree), and went 2 teeth bigger on the rear sprocket has anyone gone more or changed the front?

Not a whole lot you can do for added power besides tearing into the motor. I just put an E-Series pipe on mine, and I'm extremely happy with its performance for tight woods. It smooths out the power really well for dicing through the trees, but it still does great on top end. Is it worth $300 over the stock uncorked pipe? No way, not a chance. Mostly paying for the "cool element."

Many people are going with Edelbrock Qwiksilver pumper carbs for added response and easier starting after a crash.

Probably the most important thing you can do is set the suspension up right. I recently installed .47 kg/mm fork springs, and an 11 kg/mm shock spring. Its much, much better over roots, rocks, etc., and doesn't bottom as much.

I put on a set of Renthal "Jimmy Button" bars, and I really do like them. They have practically the same shape and sweep as the stock XR bars, but about 2" taller.

I also just ordered a applied top triple clamp that moves the bars farther forward. I'll let you know how they work out.

I would say for the woods, invest in a good skidplate, and some barkbusters of some sort.

Hmm.. I tend to never leave anything stock...wife love this aspect....anyways...

Then an exhaust system replacement, stock system is heavy, after that it's the personal stuff.
