Well I just keep coming back to this bike. I owned and sold a 1985 XL600, '04 XR650L and just bought an '07 XR650L. I want to set this one up for adventure touring mutiple day rides in Death Valley. So far I have added: 1. ProTapers 2. Acerbis Rally Pro Hand Guards 3. Skid Plate 4. Smog Block Off 5. Uni Air Filter 6. TKC80 Tires and HD Brigestone Tubes 7. Rim locks on front and rear rims 8. Pro Moto Billet Rear Rack 9. IMS 4.0 Gal Fuel Tank (Natural) 10. IMS Foot Pegs I also plan to add paniers and a windshield but don't know what to buy and would like to hear from others as to what you have bought and how you like it. I am considering the Cee Baily and Maier windshields and am considering Dirt Bagz paniers. So far, I have left the jetting, exhaust and air box stock because it seems like it is very hard to get this bike running well once modified even though you get more horse power. I modified my 2004 XR650L carb, exhaust and air box with the recommended mods but never could get it to run well at high altitude. Day rides for me consist of riding from 250 ft to over 10,000 feet and back down again. So far the stock settings are working OK as the bike runs smooth. I have ordered the temp dip stick so I can moniter engine temp with the stock settings. Milage so far has been averaging 54 MPG.
