just check the obvious and for subframe cracks at the top of the back bone and sides, right footpeg bolts, these bikes are really bullet proof. but hopefully the previous owner change oil and filters regularly. that's the only thing with used bikes is hard to tell is the PO's maintance habits..

Any help would be appreciated.....oh yeah is there only one XR650R or are there variants of this great machine.


what does your garage look like
