Russel makes SS lines for the L, I have them on mine, picked them up off of eBay. I do not know the part numbers. The front one was a huge improvement, I honestly can't tell the difference on the rear.

speedo works....this was definitely a concern of mine as the XR-R only has a mileage counter...but the speedo drive is exactly the same on the 2 hubs...neither XR's have a tach, so it's little hard to tell if the speedo is exactly correct without GPS, but it seems the same to me.......

How about "stock size" parts numbers.
also what are you using for the 320mm ?
SS Lines are from Galfer...I got em at my local Cycle Gear, as I'm a support rider and get a deal there.

not sure what you mean by "stock size" part numbers.....I didn't need anything besides the wheel (I bought used for cheap$$) and the SM brake kit....everything else I carried over from my L.....

EBC rotor I got here

Rotor - 320 mm Full-Floating 420 Stainless Steel.
Caliper Adapter - CNC Machined & Anodized Aluminum
Honda XR650L (1993-2003) $365

I like the look of yours better tho.
yeah, you know, now that you mention that...I remember looking into that.....I wasn't too impressed, so I forgot about it pretty quickly, but didn't actually try it......with what I paid for the wheel and brake kit, it came out cheaper than the Map set up anyway, but again, I got a real deal on the wheel (less than $100) and Motostrano hooked me up on the SM brake kit for cheap, as I let them do R n D work on my bike for a week, while they were looking for different frt hub/bearings/brake solutions

Ever notice?

Ever notice that whenever a KLR owner is trying to show the extreme dirtworthiness of the KLR they always show the exact same picture?

I'm very sure that all these KLR riders are much better riders than I am.

But I must admit that I love seeing riders on XRLs doing things that I lack the skill to do.

That looks closer to the beginning of a rather messy 'impact-event' than any sort of dirtworthiness demonstration!

sorry to intrude... just lurking silently in the shadows trying to decide if an XRL is my next ride.

Nice bike, as far as which filter # I am not sure. I believe if you tell then the outside measurement of the carb they can look it up by that. Also are you sure you want a pod? I ran one for a while on another bike and hated it, it means NO rain or water crossings.
Yes I believe I am correct, measure the carb and go here

Does a street legal XR600R count?

I was wondering, does a street legal XR600R count? HA! I love the XRLs too...

I second that about the POD filter, NEVER get rid of the stock airbox! Why would you, an aftermarket twinair or K&N will flow just as well as most small pods and is WAY more portected. Back when motorcycles had metal air boxes and we had to strip down an "Enduro" to race it or ride it aggressivly off road the "green weinies" or K&N POD filters were the thing to have. Now the replacement filters are definitly the way to go. You must be an old dirt tracker....

rain and water crossings... the last bike i "podded" was a '78 sr500. it stayed on the road. it sounded good.
still i can never leave things alone. i'm going to have to "pod" the XR.
feel free to say 'i told you so' . i have this sickness that causes me to fix everything that's not broken. it started with hot wheels and spray cans many years ago...


thanks for the link.


not an old dirt tracker, just old.

texsurfer, you are a man of taste and style.

the headlight is a cycle salvage 7" british style $90 cdn- can't remember the brand name- however I think the new tri bonneville lamp is better ($$$), and the same size. the cycle salvage lamp is bright enough (55/65) for the dark crappy long winters here.

headlamp brackets are www.bellacorse.com 41mm units tweaked to fit XR 43mm tubes. Made in italy, $100 usd.

headlamp stone guard is also WWW.bellacorse.com- can't remember the $.

taillight is also bellacorse, turnsignal (front) brackets are homemade to fit Acerbis tank.

turnsignals are ktm with HD -gasp! - bulbs.
