New to me today. '06 650l with 6000 miles. Needs a rear tire and some cleaning but runs great! $2300 seemed like a pretty good deal. Now to go look at more bikes to decide what to do next:banana:

Not as nice as many in here, but here's my ride... :lol:

Picked up my '86 XR600R cheap, it was ugly! Here's before and after...

It's got a fresh rebuild, with new crank, Wiseco piston and rings, fresh bore and hone, new valve seals, valve seats reworked, etc. Second gear was broken, so it got a "new" used tranny from another engine. It could still use a rear tire, but that one will do for now... :thumbsup:

Here´s a few pictures of my new BRP. They are extremely rare and hard to find here in Norway, so I´m very pleased as I managed to pick up one in mint condition, only 5000 km on it. It came with both motard and enduro wheels, Big Gun exhaust, and HRC stage 1 kit installed. Starts easy, and runs great. I couldn´t be happier!

Add a Fcr 41 carb and a UPSD fork.You want regret it.

If you have interest in a good UPSD fork already adapted to the 650R (and street use) shoot me a Pm. I'm in Europe. :worthy:

And ? Good or bad?

The carburettor is tuned in for the original exhaust, so it might not be optimal for the arrow.

I think the top-end became better, feels lik it pulls harder an longer in each gear. Might be that I lost som bottom-end power, but I really don't know for sure.

It gets 4/5, good finish and sound/power.

You have to rejet to bring the low end back.Try a 68S pilot and a 180 main(or bigger depending on the temp/other mods) as a start.You can ad the airbox mod and the Twin Air filter system (filter + screen), you prob. need the 70S than. If you want real modern world power install a Keihin fcr. :worthy:

I'm seriously thinking about putting my stock wheels and knobbies back on for the Summer. There's so many dirt roads around here that the temptation to get dirty is irresistible. :worthy::lol: :lol:

      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.
