howdy. I'm looking at a 94 XR650. I'd appreciate some feedback from owners.
this bike shows 11k miles. the current short time owner, started riding it, and stripped the shaft with the front sprocket on it., he said the keeper was not on right. or was loose..?
He took it to a local mech, and they replaced the shaft, two gears, the sproket,
and while in bored it 1 over and put in a new piston.
since then he's put about 100 miles on it. anyone ever heard of this happening?
He's asking $2k now. there are some scuffs etc, but good tires, nothing broken. starts right up, runs well.
to me the rear suspension seems very much too stiff. compared to the front, can anyone tell me can this be related to the air cyl on the rear shock? what is the proper pressure for this ? he doesnt know.
being 5 7", its just too tall for me so i was thinking if i can get a couple inches off the seat, and use the kouba link. i'll be ok.
any feedback on this bikes repairs, price etc. or other things to look for before buying would be appreciated.
