2000 XL. Just bought it. 15,000 miles totally stock except tank & pipe. I have only put fork brace & tail light & removed some stuff. More mods as money permits. first ride yesterday. Completely shocked at how well it does off road: I know the R is way better but not in my price range & this has the button:thumbsup:

Percyco, that's one clean look'n 2001 :smirk:

i'm in the process of farkleing and weight reduction of a recently purchased 2001...will post pics when i get it 90% finnished.

one question on ur turnsignals...those look just like the Buell signals i put on my KLR...are those the Buell turnsignals?

if so was there anything special with the install? ...like using the stock wattage bulb? ...extending the wiring and/or changing the bullet connectors?

TIA,

Kenny

Ken, Yes they are Buell signals, Blast rear signals front and rear . The rear Blast signals fit the stock XR mounts. I did install the bigger XR bulbs in them to cure the wattage issue and extended the wires using bullet contectors. By the way I own a 03 Buell Lightning and a my girlfriend has a Blast.......great bikes .

Somebody with a rat dog avatar suggested 'L's were a bit feminine, so I went with that theme by using a splash of Slowzuki yellow.

      Hi everyone I just purchased a 1986 XL600r that was running ok when I bought it two days ago, but would bog down around 1/4 throttle. I drove it around some yesterday staying off the throttle, and she did fine , but not running quite right.  At one point after shutting her down in town, had a real hard time (10 minutes) trying to restart her. I finally got her started and got her home. I tried to fire her up the next day in order to try and tune the carb for the altitude Im at. 
      Long story short, she just wouldnt start (wheras before it was very easy to start) - almost like she wasnt getting spark. Well I pulled the plug wire boot and the wire was completely disconnected from the coil! I figured this wire having been super loose while riding was likely the poor throttle issue I was having. Well reconnected to the plug wire to what I think was the coil, then pulled the plug to check that it was super black and sooty. I replaced with a new plug and.... still nothing. Not even close to turning over.
      Whats going on here? My next step is replacing the ignition coil and wire with a new one, but anything else I'm missing here? Thanks.
      edit: this bike had a new stator installed last summer.

      How the hell are you supposed to get that thing out? I bought that overpriced motion pro tool, tried heating it and soaking it, and it still will not move a millimeter. Do I have to use an impact driver, or do I have to drill the peening out? Can I reuse the retainer once it is out? Can I just loctite it back in later, or should I re-peen it?

      This bike has only 249 original miles - is OEM including 1994 red, white, and blue color scheme, bike was garaged and covered and only ridden a few miles a year as it was NOOP registered for past 18 years - bike is street registered now, transferred from family, clean title. Only updates are new D606 tires, battery, and all fluids, etc changed.  Bike is in excellent condition and runs even better; includes original tool kit too!

      I'm looking to convert my xr650r to full DC power and was wondering if anyone here was using a terminal bus bar ? something like this one : https://www.amazon.com/DSC-TB01-Terminal-Block-Splits-Input/dp/B005K49NMW/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1510464051&sr=8-2&keywords=bus+bar&dpID=310kVzto9uL&preST=_QL70_&dpSrc=srch
      I'm looking to make the wiring a bit more simplified if possible, and have a single organized place like this that everything can connect to and run to battery would be incredibly useful.
      Thoughts ? Suggestions ?
