    I think im getting one of these this weekend, and wanted to start shopping for a couple mods. It was suggested to do a daves mod and the carb. I looked up how to do it but it didn't say what size jets I need to buy. can anyone help? also what and where can I get a good suspension mod. either all new or rebuild what I have

    There is a lot to learn about the XR in those 3577 pages though. Though the bike is a little plugged up with out the mods it is still ride-able while you go through and find what you want to do it :)

    Also the index thread helps http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=451212&highlight=xr650l+index

    I figured you would just ask your question there, because that's where the people with the answers hang out. But Steve answered you here, and he is as good as they come, so your good.

    Ill do you one better. You can order the jets you need on this page. http://jetsrus.com/a_jet_kit_dirt/honda_650_XR650L_1992-2009.htm Ill also give the best advice I can give you after owning a xr650l for almost 5 years. After the Dave's mod. Setting up the suspension correctly will really make the bike a lot more enjoyable and safer on the road and trails.
