Got a 02 Xr650r

Finally got it! :naughty:

After thrashing the 91 for too long I'm on a new ride.

the thing is serious, Ican telll by looking at it.

New to me-


Aluminum Frame

modern looking seat(you know not all boxy like the old bikes)

lights that work

i only rode it up and down my alley and the thing feels insane.

Even the suspensio n, which is set for a bigger dude, feels right on to me :naughty:

Maybe I'm alittle more agresive of a rider, but I'll be playing with it this weekend.

I am very stoked :D:D:D

Can i be in the club now?


Welcome to the club.

Welcome. I'm sure you'll love the bike, all but the damn seat. Go out riding for 30-40 miles and report back to us as to the severity of monkey butt you have. I would kill for an older xr seat...

It actually feels pretty cushy, i dont think its the stock foam.

The truth is that i hardly sit down. I can ride for about 100 miles at pretty good race speed and not sit down, It really saves you alot of energy. Of course i'm a "junior" which my riding buddies are allways quick to point out!

Got it lasst night in the dark and just cant wait to get off work to work on my bike!

The great thing is that i have been moving up a decade every time i get a new bike and i finally got into the 21st century- 73 TS185, 82 Yz490, 91 xr600, and finally 02!!!

I am gonna love it I know!

Wecome to the BRP Club :naughty: Enjoy that new ride, I know you will... :naughty:

Enjoy! Let us know what you think after your first real ride!

Ride that sumbitch like you stole it :naughty: Congrats........ :naughty:

      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...
