Recommended Posts

hi there my neighbor in his quest to out do me just got what he thinks is a 1984 xr650 this bike is a site. i have no clue what year this beast is. i am going to help him tear it down and redo it but before we start i wanted to check the bike to make sure it is the year he says it is. does anyone know a web site where i can check the vin number to figure out what year the bike is? :) i will have to post some pics of it someone tryed NOT to hard to redo it they spray painted the whole bike so we are going to tear it down and strip all the junk on it and redo it for him

The year of manufacture should be stamped on the metal plate attached to the steering head. I believe the XR650 only came out about 4 or 5 years ago, so it is probably an XR-600.

Cheers,
