Hi all, I,ve bought a 1998 XR650L and it's being delivered in about an hour! I'm sooooooo freekin excited:applause: I had a DR650 a few years back (sold it) and and have missed the thumper ever since. I used this forum to get some great info. on the DR650 and hope to do the same with my XR650L. I'm not sure what mods have been done to the XR but I will spend the rest of the day looking it over and figuring it out! Nice to meet everyone. Steve from Georgia.
