Yep, just put them on. So far I've only had them on the street, where they perform very well. But I chose them because I've read that they work reasonably well offroad too. Hopefully I'll find out for myself next weekend.

Wicked newbie here

i just picked up an 07 xr650l. did the basic mods to it.
changed the counter sprocket to 14 to better climb some hills.
will be changing to some better off road tires soon.
i stretched the chain and had to adjust it 4 times so far
and the rear tire is 70% gone and i only have 1300 miles on it.
i had a 84 xr350 i bought new. no trouble at all. thats why going with
the xr650l was a no brainer.
lots of fun.

Nope XRL's don't float.
I have changed the oil 4 times now after dumping it in the water.
The oil was milky white. after we got back to civilation the oil looked more normal.

Sorry we didn't have any time to get any pics. I wish I had.

How deep of water can one of these run?

How do you keep the carb from sucking in water?

Bluhduh groan

as a result of carrying too many 'neccessary' supplies the sub-frame on the xr is starting to bend at the point beside the air box opening. Has anyone got a photo of their bike with the side cover off that i can get some reference points off?

cheers trev

Depends.. if you drop it about 12 inches. I have ridden through water that was just below the seat.

You mean like this?

On the right side we welded the brakes and added a Fish-plate to the underside of the broken part.



This is a close up of the left side. It was slightly bent so we bent the frame back and Fish-plated the back out side with a hole to allow the seat bolt to go through.



I'll take the side pannels and seat off tonight and snap a couple of pictures of what we did. Maybe it will help you.

We also welded up the sub frame but it failed again last weekend while running some trails in the mountains. So I am working on building a completely new subframe that uses the seat bolts, and the two sub frame mounting bolts for support.
