I'll tell you what i think....

I think that’s a sweeeeeeeet ass bike Ude123!!!! :ride:

I love the triple clamp, bars and stabilizer. That is one clean bike!

Only 709 miles???!!!??? Damn! With such a sweet ride like that! You gotta get out of the office more my friend, that L is getting restless! :ride:

Have you put that pig on a scale? Just curious…because I want my bike to have similar mods…wondering what it came out to in the end (weight wise).

Thanks desert,

I just got the bike(bone stock) in January and broke my shoulder on a ride in the desert on another bike(xr400) so I've had a little down time to build the xr650.

Roadcam,

I just put the Cee Bailey windscreen on last week and have about 150 miles with it on. It's great. You look right over the top but because it's got a curve on the top the wind goes above your head. I love it.

UDE

The bikes looking nice, you do need to get more time to ride her. But the work your doing is looking nice.

I wouldnt mind doing a few more to my bike, but shes working fine and I really dont need to drop more money into her while trying to build my 67 Camaro SS/RS.

Enjoy the fruits of your labor.

Very nice UDE!!! :thumbsup:

I am thinking of setting up my handlebars the same. I have been looking at bar clamps and am agian getting confused. I noticed you used Scotts. Were they made for the 600, for the L, or for another bike altogether?

Thanks,

Rick

Tiny pic of my last XR650-L a few years ago. WP USD fork, black Excel rims, custom non slip Ceet, etc. The Rally handguards with add-on brush guards didn't treat my right wrist too good, but I got a cool scar to show for it

But I don't learn too well I guess, so Ijust picked up an old 88 600 with a 630 kit, Baja Design kit, etc. Up and running now, but no pic yet.

My '03 Pig. Not a lot done, but I love it.

http://www.geocities.com/motopsycho650/pictures/WheelieBig.jpg

Mods: Baja Designs rewound stator; 55w PIAA head light w/ glass lens; HRC spark arrestor; HRC intake manifold; Custom air filter screen w/ TwinAir original filter; HRC needle jet & seat; Spring loaded choke plate is removed; Custom made brake light kit w/ dual filament bulb in the stock tail light lens, and a LED brake light mounted on the top lisense plate bolts. Other standard stuff like Renthal bars, IMS foot pegs, Baja Designs skid plate, etc.

Here's a pic of my air filter screen: http://www.geocities.com/motopsycho650/pictures/BackfireScreen02.jpg

The 2 X's and the line represent where the side plate presses against the filter. The TwinAir cage, although it's better flow, doesn't have support in the correct spots.
