It is a nice day so I took a picture of my 2000 XR650R.
Edelbrock carb, Titanium 4 exhaust, Power bomb header, Flexxco bars, 4.3 Clarke tank, Baja designs lighting-running on AC...it gets me to where I want to go..... Legally

could someone help me out please!

i like to stand for long sections at a time, but that gets fairly uncomfortable so i need some risers. i want some Big risers, the last ones i had on my xrl were two inchers and they werent high enough. i already have protaper high bars, they dont really seem that tall. but they are thicker which makes finding bar risers difficult (atleast i cant find any).

someone help me out please.

Check out BRP's web site CLICK HERE. They arn't cheap but they will have what your after. I went with a BRP submount tripple/risers. With my Pro-Taper Windham bend bars It's about 3 inches taller, which for my tall frame is perfect. The bars are also farther forward, standing up is super comfortable now The Windham is the tallest bar until you go with the ATV high, but it has more sweep and I wanted a bar with less sweep.

Here's a picture of my setup on the bike.

Hell yeah on the paint job...love the black rims. Why pay for black rims when you can get them for free..they just get f'ed up anyway. What stickers are you refering to? No Photoshop on that bike.

What BRP bar submount risers are you using? I have BRP lower and upper triple clamps, and now want to add the scotts stablizer, but I only have the standard (non-bridge) bar mounts.

I have the BRP submount risers. If you already have the tripple you can just get the sub mount riser setup CLICK HERE. I ordered mine with as much forward offset as possible, I think they had two choices.

A quick search on ebay pulls up these. Everything your going to need except cables and the Damper unit. Looks like a great deal (Not mine, just passing the good deal along).

CLICK HERE - (Ebay Submount riser Link)

and

CLICK HERE - (Ebay Submount arm kit)

Hey, thanks for the advice and tips...

Yeah, I have the BRP moto risers. Looks like I need to get the BRP submount risers, arm kit, cables and damper.

I love the black rims too and you're right about having to pay the price for em.

The armory sticker caught my eye...But fits perfectly! Until I saw a set of Maxxis tires today with text on the rubber...I thought it was added.

This thing really hauls. My new bars are nice and wide and up close. I kinda wish they were further away, but don't know what to do about that. They make the GSA feel like an aggressive leaned-over riding position. The XR feels most balanced when I skooch forward as close as possible up against the tank. From there you can really plant yourself in a turn, lay the bike over, keep yourself upright, maybe put a foot out ahead of you, keep those elbows up, and give it more gas than you might think exiting the turn. My knobbies do fish-tail out a little, but when they grab it slingshots you forward to the next turn. For me this bike is all about the acceleration. Some bikes are about carving the turn, but this one makes the distance between turns that much shorter. Pulls hard in any gear. With sprocket change I could probably hit 100 without any trouble at all. Nice and tall too for a tall guy.

I rode some of my favorite roads in Marin and Sonoma counties today: Coleman, Fairfax-Bolinas, Middle Rd, Ridgecrest, D St., Hwy 1, Chileno Valley, etc. and it was more fun on this bike than on any other bike I've ridden over the same roads. Yeah it's loud, rough suspension, the wind is a chore, my ass hurts and my knees are killing me from being bent so far, but THIS bike is what motorcycling is all about for me. It starts on 1st kick when warm, a few kicks when cold. Who needs e-start?! I also got a very respectable 38 mpg today in twisty-riding. I'm going to put the Acerbis tank on and really get some range. I also plan on adding my old ortlieb dry saddle bags soon, and leave 'em on full time. Perhaps Santa will bring me some street-oriented dual sport tires? What else ... pivot pegs, a proper headlight, heated grips, a BMW adapter for a heated vest? So much to do to make this bike your own, but that engine is something worth building around. Now I've got a barely dirt-worthy dual sport (the GSA), and a barely street legal dual sport (the XR) to cover all my bases.
