I believe I have a 10.5.... Need to check. Bought it with my spare shock/suspension. Already have a 10.5 on my bike.

The XRR is much more durable and robust than the KTM. That being said, it weighs more and handles differently because of it. Overall, it still works well considering it's light weight compared to others somewhat similar.

Kicking is no issue. Not having a battery and electronics to depend on is high on my list of GOOD things.

You are correct, when set up right the suspension is very good. It's better than most USDs except the best obviously (eg CRF forks). I take mine to the track all the time, the weight is what makes it a harder landing imo.

All this swingarm-frame gap stuff had me paranoid so I snapped a picture of mine after reinstalling it with new seals/bearings.

Here is some pictures. I have less of a gap than brayjay. Is mine "normal?"

My swingarm was off the frame for about 2 weeks.

I am also looking for a 10.5 or 11kg spring for the stock XRR. Please PM if you have one, thanks.

Bluhduh Uh-Oh, how much will this one cost?

Hello fellow Adventurers. Here is what's going on. I recently purchased a plated 2002 xr650r, which seemed to have an appropriate amount of wear for its age (guessing pretty hard on that one though). Mods include Clarke tank, XR only skid plate, goofy homemade rack (that came off right quick), baja designs dual sport kit, uncorked. For about a month I have been enjoying the honey moon phase with my new toy, long dual sport rides to exciting riding areas with copious amounts of roots, rocks, and tight winding single track.
The bike seemed to run really well, much better after cleaning the air filter, which was in bad shape . My only concern was that it seemed to have a fair amount of noise coming from the cases, things just sounded kinda loose. However I read somewhere that they can be like that, and that the big aluminum skid plate can make it worse .
Tonight, thankfully close to home, the bike showed signs of a problem. I went to back it out of a parking stall and it seized for a second. The bike was running in first, clutch in, and it felt like i bumped into a stone, bike just stopped . I rolled it forward and things went back to normal. 5min later i attempted to pull away from an intersection and it went for a second, then lost power to the rear wheel. I pulled it off the road and once again it wouldn't roll backwards, regardless of the clutch being in, or it being in nuetral.
I understand that the clutch bushings are notorious for going bad on these, I plan to start with that. I haven't found much else by searching. Any other ideas? I'm new to these bikes, and am still new bike poor. Thanks All.
By the way, i'm in love with this bike, it's just about criminal to have that much fun on the road, and don't even get me started how much fun it is on a good fire road

Add me to the big boy list please

Since the other guys are all looking for big boy springs. I need one too! Not afraid to go up to 11.5. Is there a 12? 240, big tank, etc.

Thanks

WorkHard,

Welcome.
My first thought is the clutch bushing, but who knows what else might be it. Bike's 11 used years old hence will need some attention, hope for you it ain't a full strip.

Clutch bushing was replaced with updated part in 2002. Doesn't mean it still couldn't fail though. Just have to start tearing down until something doesn't look right.

Sounds like a bad first gear from the sound of it.
also if you coast with the engine off in first gear (clutch in of course)
you may be able to hear it clicking.
If so check the main scavenge filter for the tooth pieces or fish with a magnet in the low spots.
I could also be a bad bearing but that would be more obvious Idd think

Any interest in THIS boys?

Too high? Make me a reasonable offer, it was invaluable, but I just sold the XRR.

Kinda new here. I'm only on page six of this thread and already taking notes. I wanted to show my 03' here. I plan on racing it in next years V2R. We raced it in 2012, resulted in engine failure, I bought another one (for the motor)and it's almost ready to ride again. There are a few more mods I would like to do, mostly engine. I'm getting a few ideas here but I want to be careful not to spend on the unnecessary. It has a bit of BRP protection bling, top mounts with hand guard attach points, scotts fork mounts, stabilizer, FMF exhaust (I'd like to know how this works with the stock engine/carb) is the header and pipe doing anything?, large aluminum skid plate, acerbis hand guards, red CV4 hoses, 8" light, not sure about the stator except that there are windings around every post (I took this off the old motor) and assumed it was to run the light. Let me know what you think and I will continue to research here. I have had some fun on this bike and I hope to keep it for a while.

Slowcheetah,

you seem not too far off another pigmate here, Crypto in Utah - at least if Google is correct in saying that Icebox is Frazer(?). He's a helpful dude, might come in handy.
