New to dual sporting
 
I've ridden motorcycles since I was 20. 30 now. Ridden a Suzuki bandit 1200 and currently riding a 05 vrod screaming eagle. Trading my jet ski for a 2007 Honda xr650L. My poor raptor is going to be jelous. lol Im 6'4 and about 300lbs, I was wondering what are a few mods you guys would do first?

You're fine. 300 pounds IS heavy, but probably ok for a guy your height.

suspension
 
I think my first mod is going to be rebuilding the suspension to help with my size

Suspension+ dave's mods on the carb.Pull the snorkle out of the airbox.Figure out how to unchoke the stock muffler or get some kind of aftermarket muffler.-1 tooth on the countershaft sprocket with a xr650r sprocket.Its wider and doesnt wear out the shaft splines.Some place to put tool kit with spare tube.The xr600 forum on thumpertalk has lots of xr info.
