  1. Thanks for all the bad news, I had my local Honda service agent quote me $1000 to do the job, $800 labor and $200 parts ($80 per hour!), Do your US bike mechanics charge that much? I promptly picked the bike back up to do the job myself. I have since stripped the engine down, and replaced the broken shift shaft ($77 Aust.). I have also taken your advise to add a few more HP while Ive got it in pieces. I have purchased a wiseco piston (10.25-1) kit, and a hotcams stage 1 cam. I am also planning on sending the head out to be ported and polished? Is there anything else i should be considering while its in bits? Oh, the other thing i know I want to add is a stainless header pipe (I already have a white bros. E2 pipe), Which make header should I go with?
  2. Can any body please tell me if there is an easy way to replace my broken gear selector shaft on my 2005 XR650L? Can it be done without pulling the engine completely down?
  3. White Brothers E2 is the way to go, Im realy impressed with mine, big power increase and great note!
  4. Does any body know where i can buy a caliper relocating bracket to suit my XR650L? I am installing Suzuki RGV wheels to my bike (Motard), so i dont require a disc, I only need the relocator bracket for my stock caliper to fit a 320 mm disc. Any help will be appreciated.
  5. my bike has a WB E2 exhaust (stock header), airbox mods, 14/45 gearing, and stock carby, only i spent a few dollars and had the bike dyno tuned. my bike will lift the front wheel under power in 3rd gear! Before all the mods mentioned above it wouldnt lift in first gear (wouldnt pull the skin of custard)! Having your bike dyno tuned wil make all the difference, especially since you have installed the new carby,
  6. loosen the bottom triple clamp bolts (leave the top set done up), now sit on the bike, hold the front brake lever then compress (push your weight down on the front) the front end half a dozen times. tighten the bottom triple clamps up again.
  7. Im Keen To Convert My 2005 Xr650l To Motard Configuration, But Would Like To Do So On A Budget (buy Second Hand If Possible). I Live In Australia, And To Date Have Not Seen Another Example Of A Completed Xr650l Motard Here. What Other Honda Models Have The Same Hub As The Xr650l? I Have Seen Quite A Few Crf450 Wheel Sets For Sale, And The Odd Xr650r Wheel Sets, Will Any Of These Fit Straight Onto My Bike? Any Body Have A Set For Sale? Or Does Any Body Have A Set Of Standard Xr650l Hubs As Another Option?
  8. Thanks for your tips bcone, that will give me a few more options, Thanks MCCOYBOY, I actually sent you a message via ebay the other day, (Im Glen), I look forward to hearing what the shipping price will be.
  9. I AM KEEN TO CONVERT MY 2005 XR650L TO MOTARD CONFIGURATION FOR THE SUMMER MONTHS, AND WOULD LIKE TO DO THE CONVERSION TO A BUDGET (PREFER TO BUY SECOND HAND SETUP). DO ANY OTHER TRAILBIKES IN THE HONDA (OR OTHER MAKE) RANGE HAVE THE SAME HUBS AS THE XR650L? I HAVE BEEN LOOKING THROUGH LOCAL ADVERTS (AUSTRALIA), AND THERE SEEMS TO BE PLENTY OF WHEEL SETS TO SUIT CRF450's, DO THESE FIT? ANY HELP WILL BE APPRECIATED. PS. I HAVENT SEEN ANY OTHER XR650L MOTARD IN AUSTRALIA
