Love me a super tanker!!




Front brake hose needs to go behind the fork tube.


Those hand guards suck, I broke one when the bike fell over during a pee break.

I am going to install a 4" Spal puller fan on my 650r, I am not sure If I have a 6.6 gal Acerbis tank or a 6.3 gal. Either way with that tank do I have enough room for the fan? Anyone on here have that same set up? I saw someone's fan set up with a nifty shroud around the fan. Is that really that necessary or am good just to mount up the fan the best I can?

I know I am asking some asinine questions. But feeling a bit overwhelmed with this bike, nothing really wrong with it, just a lot of little things all over that need tending to.

other bike?

Are there any other comparable bikes to the 650r that have a longer service interval and reliability but similar capabilities? -If money is no object of course.
Sorry to interrupt the fan question, I live where it's always cool enough.

Good Question, all things considered i would say tt500 however i like my R way better but the tt was a great bike and one of the first 4 strokes that broke a lot of ground
we sell rack in just about every country for that bike so they are really out there for being so old it also is a legend , IMO

With you on the tt500. Blew me away at the time - first time I took four strokes seriously. Dated suspension and frame, of course, but still fun as hell.

If you run into any major snags I live just around the corner and I would be happy to help. I am on my fourth frame off rebuild of my XRR so I feel pretty confident about them. This is only my first time into the engine though.

I'm loving the look of that bike! I need to make up a small screen for my 8" racelight. I didn't want a screen in the desert but around alabama I want a bit of wind protection.

will the stock electric system run a fan or are upgrades needed to the stator and/or the regulator rectifier or any other component?

The stock system doesn't have enough power for running lights AND a fan. If you just ride during the day, however, you'll have plenty of juice. Fans run about 36 watts. The stock system is AC only with regulator so you'd need to add a rectifier to get DC for the fan. You can upgrade the stator to get between 200-250 watts output (Ricky Stator or Baja Designs).

It fits with the Acerbis, the big tank is a 6.3 gallon. I didn't do anything special for mounting the fan.

TE630 is the only bike I can think of that compares and the XRR probably beats it because our clutch design is better, they win with the electric start though.

Sean-O is right - don't listen to me! Sorry, didn't notice the QLD. You guys got stators putting out more power than the US version.
