Thinking of an xr650r for touring ?

Hey guys
Havent been on the site for ages. Got back form South America a few months ago after 30,000km on my Transalp 05.
The trany was great for long touring with very little maintenance. But was a real hand full on the roads i took .
So am looking for something lighter that can to the single trail stuff but dont want to sacrifice too much power and have too much maintenance ( deifies the purpose of a adventure bike).
Now im starting to window shop for a new bike and the XR650R has caught my eye.
What do you guys think ..... how often do you change the oil
how many km before a rebuild
any things that i should know about buying one
etc....
So if any of you guys have one or owned one and can shed some light for me it would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers Maciek

Race improvement ? who is racing ?

Sean,
What do you think a race suspension would feel like / be like ?

What are you wanting the bike to be like ?

What do you think TB and my bike would feel like to ride ?
Which is pretty close to what the safari bikes were setup like in the movie.

A poor choice of words there glenn ...


I like the way your bike handles .. just from the ride we have done together .... is it necessary to send my setup to sydney to achieve that ...i dont think so .....i will take it to mpe and i think i will be happy

having said that ..... it would be a different tune if i had the time and money to travel down there and get the teknik guys to work it

it goes without saying there the best in the game for our bikes ....hopefully mpe will set my bike for my weight and gear i carry ..if that is done ill be a happy camper
