Price on an XR650L crate engine.

There's nothing wrong with mine. I'm just wandering for comparative reasons how much a new XR650L and transmission crate engine runs.

you would have to check with a dealer I think as they are the only ones who can order one. (as far as I know) same for crated bikes.

I remember finding a price online, I forget where, but they listed a new engine at $3600

Sometimes you can get a new/used engine from

They buy old stock (new and used) and part them out. I have seen XRLs and XRRs on the site brand new but last years model. Kinda makes me sad seeing perfect bikes torn apart and sold like that. I have bought stuff from them and it is of new quailty.


I just looked at their site. They have a 2007 complete engine less carb they are bidding out. Bike had 300 miles on it. Current bid it $910. with 3 days left.

Sometimes they just have a buy it now price but this one is being bidded out.


New pull-outs were going for about $2400-2600 on "that" auction site about two years ago. No bids, just "Buy It Now" and they were selling.

A lot more than doing an O/H at home...

XR's Only gave me a ballpark quote for a complete out of bike rebuild of $2100

I was plotting on buying one as a back-up in case something went squirrely with my plant and train. So I could just swap and do repairs at my leisure. But maybe I'll just buy a back-up bike (bikes are the way to go in So Cal).

      So I don't seem to find my specific issue so here I am asking. 
      I have a 1997 Xr600r. It was recently re-jetted and has ran really well ever since until more recently it has begun to have this issue.
      Everything works fine. Kicks right away, nice and easy. Runs great, sounds great, purs. But when I'm downshifting and slowing down to a stop, if I let my hand off the throttle that's when it just dies. I found that I can counter this by lightly holding the throttle as I down shift (so I'm revving quite a bit during downshift).  But it hadn't done this before. 
      The only thing I've done that I suspect may have been an issue on my part was when I pulled out the engine to change the valve cover gasket and upon doing so perhaps when connecting the carb back to it, I may have missed something or made a crack in the boot? 
      Any ideas? Thanks

      Hello all,
      There's been a lot of talk about how to register a dirt bike in states that don't allow it.
      I just moved to North Carolina and for the first time in my life might be able to afford a bike. I've been dreaming about an XR650R for a long time, but they're not cheap. Plated bikes seem to be more expensive too. So here's my question, has anyone tried to plate a dirt bike by adding all the necessary features and having it inspected as a custom bike? Anyone know of another way I can plate an xr650 in NC?

      Hoping for some help before I throw in the towel and end it all!
      Engine starts fine, runs and idles well for +/- 10 minutes, but cuts out while riding once the engine warms up (175 - 185) and intermittently cuts out thereafter (any speed/gear). It will start up after 30 seconds or so (but won't run for long before dying again). No spurting or surging.. just dies.
      I've replaced CDI (twice), Spark plug, spark wire and coil, and most recently pulse generator. I do have a 41mm Flat side carb from a CRF (and it has more power than the old carb setup), breathing through a Uni filter. Also, sealed battery tender battery (hasn't shown low when trickle charged).
      What's next on the test/replace list? Stator maybe? Please help...
