Hi guys,

I live in Angola and bought in 2009 a XR650R 2007...also the happy owner of a Ktm 950 Adv 2004.

I´ve been riding it in some raids...and for fun at the weekends.

I've mount CRF fork, a CRF triple clamp adapted for XR, Magura EX, Polisport UFX front fender, Polisport MMX headlight, pro circuit exhaust, and new foot pegs.

The wind screen is a slipstreamer spit fire universal. I do ride with the shifter that low it hasen't presented a problem because I don't wear my MX boots and my feet are only 8 1/2 so I have just left it alone now that you point it out though I think I am gonna raise it because it looks way to low :)

Just looks in danger..LOL My big ass feet would never catch it. I use to ride Pike Natl Forest (RRMC) on my XT back in the day, Mt Evans, just every where. My XRL is my first DS since Colorado. Why? I have no freakin idea. I ride the piss out of this 650L. I rode my 200SX KTM for the first time in a month yesterday..LOL

The XRLs definitely lack in the throttle snap category. I think the three ton flywheel has a lot to do with it. It takes a while to get all that mass spinning.... of course it is a tractor once you get it spinning.

Yep next time I have the seat off I will take some pics. I chopped a LOT of the fender off with my Dremel. Basicly left the two side bolt holes that mount to the XR frame and enough "meat" on top under the seat to bolt through the top of that metal arch under the seat. The back 5" of the two frame tubes are chopped off. You basicly jam the fender in there, figure out where it needs to sit, and then start cutting away everything you dont need. Its easy to do, just takes some time.

I made the rear section out of wood to fit things up. I am going to make a real one out of Metal now. I love how bright the Multi LED light is! I have baby turn sigs as well..

      Hey Guys and gals,
      I am having an issue setting up my lights and I am not sure what I'm missing. I have a 2001 Honda XR650R that was "made" street legal by the previous owner. I'm trying to add in front blinkers and when I hook up my front blinkers all the lights dim and  the front don't flash or even power up. I am lost as to what I am doing wrong or if the battery pack I'm using does not produce enough amps to run the system. I will link the parts I'm using below and a diagram of how I'm attempting to wire it. Any Ideas or help would be much appreciated. Not sure on the Amp draw or limit on the items been digging just no luck as to what is being used or produced as of yet (blew my amp fuse in my meter being a dummy). 

      http://a.co/7MFeePA Hand Switch
      http://a.co/9F5rcRT The Front Blinkers (shown to use 5.4w on 12v so I think about .5A)
      http://a.co/gQ1OTf7 Brake and blinker combo (25w so about 2.1A)
      http://a.co/2JRKUTj Horn (shown to use 1.5A)
      http://a.co/1i6wwGk Battery it produces 12v 15A output
      http://a.co/8Z1Z8iv How I get the power off battery cut in half and bullet crimped
      http://a.co/aXkrtgB Flasher relay (max 42W adjustable to .02A to 12A)
      http://a.co/8Z07FbJ Other flasher relay thinking other was the issue not the case
      Thanks,

      So I recently bought an 85 XR600R. My 1st bike when I was 13 was a 79 XR 250 and loved it. Now I bought the best bike from a young kid who said it was running in his ad. Of course it wasn't when I went to look at it. But, the price was right after I talked him down a little. My son and I have replaced the CDI, plug, and coil pack ensuring it had a good spark. We cleaned the carb, adjusted floats (it's the duel carb set up) and discovered that the mixture screw was missing, which we replaced. My son managed to get it started a few times by relentlessly kicking it over because he's 15. Haha. It idled unpredictably and cut out mostly within a minute not to be started again until it cooled. It ran long enough once for me to ride it up and down the road a few times backfiring with almost every gear shift for about ten minutes tops. It seemed underpowered but was still able to lift the front wheel off the ground slightly during takeoff. Now I didn't tell you that I had bought a compression gage and checked it prior to all this. It was roughly 70psi which I was told by a coworker was plenty to get it started and ride on. With all the difficulty starting it I decided to check the Haynes Manuel that I have and check the actual compression spec which I should have done from the beginning. Now that I realize I'm at/under 1/2psi compression I'm doing a little research as to what to do now. I'm not a mechanic, but I've gotten my hands in there doing simple repairs and whatnot. If I have a manual I'm pretty much good to go, but a full motor rebuild is a little daunting. I have a good friend that is an auto mechanic that lives right down the street that just started getting into restoring bikes that is willing to help me out. My biggest concern is the availability of parts for this motor. I've seen some stuff here and there on the web, but I'm looking for any suggestions that can point me in the right direction. I Really LOVE this bike and would love to see it ressurected, but I'm afraid I'm going to get too deep in to my pocket to have it make sense. Any info or suggestions welcome!

      I have some new rims in sizes 18x2.15 and 21x1.6. This would be inside measurements, flange to flange. 32 spoke holes in both.
       
      They are new, in chrome , good for adding some bling to a modern bike, or restoring an older one.
       
      I listed them on ebay.

      Hello, I recently purchased a used 2003 XR650L. The bike is giving me a weird problem. It has a misfire under load. In any gear, if I am at about 60% throttle, is bucks and misfires, and has no power. It feels as if the bike is bouncing off of a rev limiter. I can eventually make my way up to 65mph if I stay in 4th gear and be easy on the throttle. 5th gear is useless, the bike will barely run in 5th gear, any sort of acceleration and the bike misfires and bucks. The bike came with a Big Gun exhaust slip on pipe, and a Uni air filter, other then that it appears stock. The male I purchased it from advised the gas in the tank was one years old gas. The first thing I did was remove and drain the tank, change the oil, and clean the air filter. The problem definetely wasn't gas related. I removed the carburetor and inspected it, it was dirty but I did not find anything major wrong with it. It looked as if someone half attempted to do Dave's mod, as the tab on the fuel mixture screw was ground off. I went ahead and completed Dave's mod while I was inside of the carb. I have no clue what size jets are in the bike. I put it back together, and the problem is still there. I ordered a new CDI box, and put that on the bike and the problem is still present. Any help would be great!

      I'm trying to find an XR650R that had already been tagged and titled. Any recommendations on where to look? I'm not having any luck so far. I live in GA and I'm definitely willing to travel pretty much anywhere east of the Mississippi (maybe farther if I have to). Any help is appreciated.
