I know the feeling

The Kenda is a good cheap tyre that plain works in a large amount of situations for what it is. For the record I only get a little less miles for the Kenda than I do with a 606.

Had to take some sheetmetal parts down to a local fab shop so I could use their press-brake. Normally use my pickup to haul parts, but that's what I was working on...

I don't but the last time I cleaned my filter I couldn't get a lot of the dirt off the back even after really working it...then I realized it was burnt parts of the filter

Though I still don't use the backfire screen..

The PO tossed the stocker so I added the XRs only BF screen, seems to work fine, not sure if it flows better than the stocker though.

Howdy BRP folks!

Seems I'm after somewhat of a unicorn, so I figure a post here wouldn't hurt either.

Looking for a plated Xr650r in WA.. (If not might have to make a "home built" bike from the frame up... really would prefer not to have to do that..)

Thanks in advance!

-Mike

How strict is WA when it comes to importing a plated/street titled XRR from out of state? This may be an option. I bought mine in MO already plated and it was no problem at all when it came to tagging it here in OK, (though OK is pretty lax on tagging OHV for street use anyway.)

No big deal if I have to live with it burning a little bit of oil, but would rather address it if it's anything I can fix.


Mine had 34 000 km on the odometer when I got it...(the cable was disconected :P...God knows how many in reality ). I did a minimum of 25 000 km since 2008...I changed cables, the clutch bushing, bearings...Never did any work on the engine, excepting tappet clearences. Starting's a bit fuzzy, eats oil...maybe a rebuild next winter with a big bore kit if the cylinder is busted...if not, just a piston kit and other necesary work.

Regards,
Alex

I think IF it comes in with a plate I can keep it, but not looking to have to go on too epic of a trek for the bike itself... I'll be doing quite a bit of modification to the stock platform when all is said and done.. gonna be a good one :)

Thanks

Howdy Mike,

I'd keep your eye on the Portland/Salem Craigslist, too. My brother's in Tacoma area and he just brought one in from out of state last summer. I was with him at the DMV and it took him about 5 minutes to get his plates and have a WA title in the mail. WA is as tough as CA for trying to get an un-plated one plated. From what he discovered, if plated in WA, it needs to have been done prior to July, 2003.
Good luck with your search.

Yep, found mine in WA, but it still had CA title. SO I licensed it in my brother's name in ID, then had him give it back to me for X-mas. If it's ever been registered as an ORV in WA, you're out of luck. Hope you find one, they rock!

+1
It's there for a reason, no doubt some more air would flow through without it but a small loss in top end for want of stopping a fire I'd rather have it installed as designed.
