Stronger than the XR's only one?  I don't know of any.  The 1x bike didn't even have one, I guess they trusted their DID chains!

I'd really like to get a newer look going with my BRP. I suppose I could powder-coat my rims, will that work long term? Otherwise, I'd just assume buy some from someone here, black or red preferably. Thoughts on powder coating?

I wouldn't powder-coat unless they were road/sumo wheels, stones will chip them in no time.  You can get rims re-anodized though, but it would most likely be almost as cheap to just get new rims.

FrankenPig -

Just finished grafting on a KLR650 rear wheel.  Up front she's wearing a 276mm Africa Twin rotor squeezed by a Suzuki DL1000 caliper.  Stock engine w/ Dave's carb mod, cleaned up the electrics with a MOSFET regulator and a Lithium Iron Phosphate battery.  Home-made oil cooler based on a Baker Precision core.  I beat it like a rented mule.

      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?
