piggy got a make over

Recommended Posts

hi guy's

a little back ground first, got my 2002 xr650l in aug 07 2400miles on it and got it for $2800. this is the first bike i've ever owned and learned how to ride with it and got my MC licence with it. a late start at 39 year's old i know:bonk:

second year went on a DS ride and got hooked on off road tail rideing,got all my gear and have been down afew times :banana:

well at 10,000miles she was getting pretty loud so this last fall tore it down and the PO had bored it already and put the cam chain tesioner in wrong and the cam brearing in the cyl head and cover were shot and the small end on the crank to:banghead:

i take it to the dealer and they give me a price of 3600 for a crank up rebild:foul:

thought about just getting a new one, but this is my very first bike:worthy:

and will never get rid of it even if i get something eles:thumbsup:

so most off the cost was the crank and cyl head and cover like $1600 of it,this is where i have to thank adrenalin cycle. i got a 07 crank $150,complete cyl head and cover $600 and oil pump$30 from same bike with 2,000 miles on it .all part's were checked by the dealer and they said all were like new,great deal and good guy,s with fast sipping:thumbsup:

well i got her back and have 150miles of break in and this thing run,s awsome very strong.

it got bored to 101mm wisco,hot cams,complete rebuild, power bomb and Q4,with uni filter. it was already de smogged and daves mods and snorkle gone.

it,s jetted 55/160 2 1/4 out on air screw.

since i have had it back i did pro tapper bar,s and cycra guards pillow top grips. this cut the felt vibration in 1/2. also got the gut,s soft foam and gripper cover, very comfy:thumbsup:

i realy like the bar,s woods high bend evo i can stand up and reach the bars much better.

and now some pic,s

I've got the same header (FMF Powerbomb) on my bike ... it gets a little warmish on the lower leg/boot when riding at lower speeds around town, but once you get above 50 mph+ you don't even notice it. :lol::banana:
