    How much to expect??

    Hi I finally did it. I just ordered a hotcam and a 101mm 10.25/1 wiseco piston. With the mods already done to my bike (sig) how much more power should I expect? Thanks Martin

    Just put on my pumper today, more than I expected!

    ok nevermind last post I just checked and it does not seat on the locknut. I'm at 2.5 turns out too. Very crisp response off idle.

    Hi I just installed my edelbrock on my L. When you say 2.5 turns out, do you mean out from seated on lock nut? Mine is way more out than 2.5 turns. thanks

    is it a giggle or a cry?

    It's definatly sad, cause its owner spends more time posting than riding

    i think i have a real real big problem on my hands.

    I have a question.. I'm gettin a new edelbrock carb for my L and I wonder if the stock muffler belt will handle the extra power procuced?? I already ordered a new powerband. I'll also change the prestone before first ride wihth new carb, any suggestions?

    XR650L - Buy new or used?

    Buy a used one from someone here on Thumpertalk... We all know how to do maintenance on a bike!!! Seriously, I think the L is one of the safest bike to buy used.. It's so simple and reliable.. Buy a recent one with low mileage. You'll save a few thousands$$ . I bought my 00 L last year from the 2nd owner of the bike. Could'nt go wrong with a bike that clean!! http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/garage.php?do=viewattachment&attachmentid=7908 That pic was taken after my first ride on the bike in august 04. I'm sure there is lots of used 650L's out there that are very clean. Do a test ride, check for oil leaks on engine and forks. The air filter condition is usually a good sign of how the bike was maintened. People who only change oil every 10000 miles wont even think of cleaning the air filter. You will enjoy the bike more knowing you paid so little for such a wonderful machine!! Go used, that's what I would do.
