best So Cal service shop for my 650r

Newbie here... :bonk:

first off.... TT is a bible to the newbie BRP rider...LOve it

thanks to all the posts on here im getting alot more info then i could ever ask for. thanks :applause:

question: Where is the best place to take a 2001 XR650r for a check up.

I think she needs some internal cleaning and a check up..

I would love to stay local 92677ish..

Precision Concepts has been her doctor in the past and they did all the suspension. I would love to take it to them again but its a little far...

Any thoughts???

Thanks again for all the help......

soon to be a forum whore


Where are you located? my shop is in Thousand Oaks, Ca.


If you just want a tune up then any Honda dealer can take care of you.

If you want to take it up a level--heres some shops that have mechanics who work on/race support and modify the XR 650r--all have built Baja 1000 race bikes:

Steve at Orange County Honda

Rob at BarnumsPro

Eric at Precision Concepts

Tex at Baja Designs

ESP, Berkley Honda, Temecula Motorsports also build Baja 1000 race bikes.

I am sure there are 2-3 others.

Personally i like Rob Barnum. He has built (5) XR650r race motors for me.

Over the years he's built dozens and dozens of XR650 race bikes. Only Eric at PC has as much experience.

Hope that helps.

i live in Orange county,

Mike...Thanks for the input. I will make my rounds and see what i come up with..

Thanks again..
