Love that XR600 ATC. That will be something else to ride when it's done.

Here is my XL600R. I've done a bunch of work to it over the last two years. I live in the city so it doesn't see dirt. It's stays pretty clean as my general commuter bike. Great to ride through traffic because it's light and narrow. I can sneak between stuff on small streets and at intersections. Plus it rides over potholes better than my car.

Nice looking bike. Thats what i love about my 600 is its fun around town, splits lanes easy, and i can take shortcuts through feilds, over curbs or down train tacks that i can do in my truck.

Picked up this 2001 XR 650R for a really good price. Rode it the first time this past weekend out in Barstow. I currently ride a 450x, but this thing is heavy, cushy, and really fun. I can't believe how well it takes some of the big hits. Now I just need to learn out to turn it and start is better and I'll be set. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase. I want to make some minor tweaks to the setup and I'll be ready for Mexico.photo5.jpg

      I have a 2000 xr650l and I bought it with a tm40 carb on it and the jetting is way off anybody trying to help? I am less then 1000ft above sea level if that helps any. Thanks in advance!

      My pig's about ten years old and has 12,000 miles on the clock. To my knowledge the shock's never been gone through. I assume it's due for some new oil and nitrogen by now? How much of a difference will I notice if I get it revalved while I'm at it? If I do get it revalved, should I try to do it myself, have a local shop do it, or send it to someone?
