    This is a great build and a proven xr650r! Completely rebuilt in 2015 specifically to ride from the US to Cabo (Baja Pennisula) and back in 2016, approximately 2500 miles round trip, maybe another 500 mile since. In 2015 the bike (2000 xr650r) was original and documented at approximately 7500 miles. The restoration addressed every system on the bike including engine overhaul (piston/rings/stage 1 cam kit), pumper carb, suspension/steering upgrade/rebuild, upgraded lights/electrical/dash/trail tech/charging system), increased cooling, improved guards/protection, tubiless setup front/back, tires (desert IT's fr/bk), street legal with integrated blinkers, braking (over size rotors/braided lines), Acerbis safari tank 6.3 gal), seat concept, rekluse clutch, reinforced sub-frame/luggage rack for panniers, aftermarket exhaust, mikuni pumper carb, trail tech gauge, oversize silicon hoses, stainless steel brake lines, etc. The list of parts is long and far exceed my asking price, but can be listed if asked for, know its extensive and first class. ... I didn't realize at the time but this was a purpose built bike, it performed excellent for the trip and now just sits in my garage. Post trip the bike was completely inspected/cleaned/serviced/repaired and has only been ridden a hand full of times. $4.5k is my starting point and doesn't touch the amount I have invested. I will consider trading for a 300 2 stroke or crf450. I will be traveling through WY to Denver the last week of July and may be willing to coordinate full or partial delivery.

  3. jimmyh, it sounds like we need to chat! looks like you have a great setup. I'm definifitely interested in the 4.1 tank, i will send you a pm, thanks
  4. I've been riding an 08 klx450 for 4 seasons, I've completed a lot of the standard mods for trail riding and its just been a blast to ride. I have it licensed in montana but it's set up and used mostly for tight mountain trail riding and some forest service road. I don't get out as much as I'd like and it only has about 1600 miles currently Some buddy's and I are planning a ride to the tip of baja next winter, the goal being to find as much single track as we can but i'm sure there will be more than a few miles of slab. 3 of the guys are setting up xr650r's and another is on a dr650. I'm on the fence as to whether I should reconfigure my KLX for the trip and put on 2500 miles or buy a KTM 530 specifically for the trip. I'm looking for some insight from those who've built up there bikes for single track/enduro type riding. What's worked and what mods should be done. What sort of range do you get with the 4.1 tank? How does it affect the handling of the bike? Gearing? Hinson clutch cover? how much more oil capacity Oil coolers and fan kits? what are you using and how does it 'cruise' at 65mph? Oil change interval? Comfort and ergonomics, how does it make you feel after 100+ mile day? luggage, how does the bike handling the weight? is the sub frame holding up? Headlight upgrade? Additional MOD thougts for the trip??? KX head aftermarket exhaust and header
  5. Just got ahold of a 08 klx and i'm looking for a stock or aftermarket header and maybe silencer for an 06-08 kx450... jarlarch@yahoo.com 406-223-7075 (text please)
