Send your engine to Chris Blais. Dakar podium finisher, excellent wrenching skills. They specialize in engine rebuilding...just google his business name above. If your thinking xrs only...might as well send it to Chris and Patty. Great people.

Choosing Between 2 R's

Curious about your opinions on this. Two bikes with in a few hundred miles of each other for sale. Deciding between the following.

Bike 1:

2000 model, unknown mileage, good but not super strong runner.
Apparently uncorked but only drilled exhaust, tip not replaced. Unknown jetting, air box mods, if any.

Titled and little if any modifications from stock.

Needs new anti bottoming bumper on rear shock, new chain, sprockets.

Not known if CS seal or clutch bushing upgraded.
Asking $2300

Bike 2
2007 Model, low hours/miles (under 1000mi)
Completely stock, run from time to time but nothing else. Super clean sans some dust.
$3500


Have money for either, which one?

Engine rebuild

Anyone know if Barnum is still in business? I've got one of his 680 motors that needs to be "freshened up". Still runs good but has several thousand miles on it I'd guess. I've put 2500 miles on it myself, not sure how many the P.O. racked up. Any contact info would be appreciated, or someone familiar with his motor builds. The motor is stage 3? (all the goodies) I think, but dead reliable so far. I'd like to rebuild it the same. I bought the bike from XR king a couple of years ago, and it's never failed.(except the sticking float on the Eddy sometimes) thanks for any info.

I'd buy #2. Low mileage motor, nice pretty plastic etc. And try and get it for closer to $3000.

I spoke with Rob about six months ago. He had moved to Arizona.

I Agree with slogger. low mileage, less beaten on (7 years) and with it being all stock yet, you can pull out the corking parts and it will be like a brand new bike.
