JW's BRP XRR Build 2012

Hello,
"Mission creep" has set in on my Honda XR650R. I thought I was just replacing the suspension, but as I'm writing this, I'm staring at a bare engine in a beautiful aluminum frame. Mission creep....


Since I've done a lot more to this BRP than anticipated, and I have a lot more work to go, I thought I would keep track of the changes on this thread. I have to go back in time for a few posts to get people up to speed on the bike and it's state.


Here is the bike in pretty stock trim. This picture was taken last March. Though it looks good from far, everything that could be worn on the bike *IS*. Chain is shot, brake pads shot, electrical system barely functions, no brake lights, needs valve adjustment, carb cleaning and new tires.



You can see in the back right corner of the above picture what I have planned for the front end!
