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!

Backfire screen

[QUOTE=Capt. Egregious;15144759]I use Maxxis Desert. Work good for a inexpensive tires. Decent on the road to.

How many fellow XRR riders use the the back fire screen on the air box?

+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.

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!

Washington is very strict and is revoking already plated bikes. I got my plated XRR in Oregon and licensed it here in Washington without any problems three years ago. My friend at the DOL said that just as long as the bike had never been registered in Washington you can register it here as a street legal bike. I just told her it was street legal and got new plates for it. Time will tell as far as the state pulling tags go. I know lots of KTM guys loosing there plates and afew XRRs too. So the problem isn't get plates on it, it's keeping them on it.

Thanks for the feed back on the back fire screen..

Its from a fellow ADV'er, I've spoke to him already about it and it sounds like hes covered ALL the major pitfalls the proper ways. Not many of these with plates to go check out, nor do they usually last around here. Either way I'll look it over good, and if everything falls into place then so it shall be.

Thanks!

BRP stands for beautiful red pig

I want this bike... I know i cant have it, but one like it?

Guys I am new to the XR650R... I seriously want one for when I get back from Afghanistan. There are so many.

What year is desireable?

Also, should I buy stock and modify or by one already done?

Blake if you want to sell I would be interested...very.

Thanks for the help.

This is a beauty !!!

There is no difference from year to year (save a few very minor little things) so for all practical purposes the model year is irrelevant.

Buying one already modded will save you $$ in the end if you find one that has at least some of what you want. Mods are expensive! You probably won't find one that's exactly what you want, but if you can get something that's half-way there or better that'd be a great start.

I appreciate your advice!

I am trying to read as much as I can ....lotsa pages.


I have seen a pattern for mods, Tank, stator, lighting, pegs and carb.

What other issues should I be looking for?

When you pick one up make sure and grease the swing arm bearings if they haven't already been greased, they came with very little grease from the factory. Also if it's a 2002 or older make sure that the clutch bushing has been updated to the newer version or just order the parts and change it out. The old version of the busing can seize to the shaft from lack of lubrication. While your doing the maint on the bike pull out the chain adjuster bolts in the swing arm and lube them with anti seize to keep them from seizing in the swing arm.

Just a few small things that will help keep the XRR running many trouble free hrs.

Exhaust is nice, extra wheels range from nice to necessary depending on what you'll be doing with the bike (and are crazy-expensive), quality chain and sprockets, generally well-maintained (including regular suspension servicing), all the usual stuff.

Everything mentioned has been just the basics for a long range dualsport. Better lighting is nice for riding home in the dark, bigger pegs make long days easier, different carb for different situations (better starting after wrecks=edelbrock, better performance= TM40 or the other one I cant remember right now). There isnt really anything that the pig can't do out of the box but every bike needs to be ( thats right, we NEED to upgrade our toys) built for the specific situations and made to fit yourself.

What are you planning to do with the bike?

Purpose

Well, Everything!! Except racing and jumps. jeje I owned a KLX250s and felt I needed more power. Then The KLR 650.... ahhhh Kinda like the simplicity but was not for me. Then I took a ride on a 950 se Nice but I need something in between without the KTM maintenance or parts shortage / waiting at the dealer issue.

I rode my friends lemme see XR500 like an 82 model and I fell in love with it.

I travel like from Miami to Orlando so it has to be able to ride the street and then sugar sand, single trails and fireroads. Planning to do maybe OKlahoma, missuori and Arkansas.

I fall down a lot so it should be able to start after taking a nap

One thing I am worried ...... I am 5' 06" 30 inseam??? and 160 punds I wonder if they make springs for my weight

jeje Pulling up to a tree is something I have seen but I wonder if it is too tall and could it be lowered without losing the attitude.

I wont be in the States for another 3 months but I think I shoud start doing the research to what will be my next bike.

size doesn't matter!

I'm 5'6" 140lbs and have slighlty stiffer eibach springs front & rear with a performance design linkage on my XRR, brings it down enough to make it a little more reassuring when you go for a dab, tyre touchs the inner mudguard when bottomed out after jumps but so far no noticeable problems with anything wearing! after stalling/dropping it on soft ground can be a pain to kickstart unless there's a tree or something to lean against as the sidestand try to bury itself when you give it a hoof, different carbs make a huge difference when it comes to hot starting, but a hot start lever is also a godsend. it'll always start but depends on how tired you are on whether it's the first kick or not! hope this helps
