new guy in Mobile al. 07 XR650L

Recommended Posts

Picked up a lightly used XR650L Waiting on the title from Honda financing. The PO was a big guy. i am going theu the suspension and removing the eibach stuff and going back to stock. have a week or so till the title arrives so I have plenty of time to get it right before I really start street riding it. Anyhow I thought I would pop in and say hello. Here is my bike as it was when I bought it.

Clean bike and welcome to TT. 👍

The rear spring should have a part number on it that includes the rate.

I have already reinstalled the stock spring. Everything came with the bike. The PO was really good abotu keeping everything he took off the bike.

Here it it as it sets now.

R for race? Sheesh, I thought R was for remedial. You know riders that coucldnt handle the bike and be able to negotiate traffic at the same time..🤣

Story was hsi wife got tired of him going riding all the time ( did I mention the bike had 1400 miles on it?) Said it pretty much sat the last year adn he got tired of making payments on something he was no longer using. I pretty much just paid it off from honda. Got a great deal. I mean a REALLY great deal. So I am a happy capmer. Glad it worked out in my favor.

PS I dig the Avater haed trauma, , Sux that i am actually old enough to know who Max Headroom is.....

Only a LITTLE odd? It was VERY odd. but still mildly entertaining.
