I just bought mine today! Fully jetted and an FMF exhaust.

Did you ride it without the new exhaust? I'm curious how much louder the FMF is compared to the OEM unit.

Nice bike Man. Now get it dirty!

No but it's a mellow, throaty and slightly louder sound. I'm happy that it's not too loud though. Listening to that for a whole day can wear you out

Just wanted to say hey to everybody, great forum, advice, and bikes. I am hoping to by my first xr650l this winter, a used one of course being the typical poor college student. I grew up riding dirtbikes but I haven't had one in a couple years and have been looking to get back into it, but at the same time a bike that I can use to zip around campus and town is ideal as well. The stuff on this forum is great and everybody seems pretty cool on here, and I will be posting pics of the bike when I find it this winter (I will be checking the flea market and such daily). If anyone knows of any 93-99 XR650L's for sale around Indiana I would appreciate a heads up. In the mean time I'll be reading the forum and dreaming.

To help strenghten the sub frame and allow me to carry more, I added one of these. It bolts to the passenger pegs and turn lights.

What jump a XRL, that would be ludicrous.
Yes I ride my bike every where. My son and I go to the motocross tracks, trails, cross country tracks. Its a awesome bike.
I am moving the rack futrher forward over the tool bag to distribute the weight further forwards.

Its not that they cant fly.. Its the landing that hurts.

Thumb Here is a "Before" pic of my pig



I'll post an updated pic of the pig in Motard set up when I get the rest of
the parts I need to finish the project.

XR's ROCK!......One of my friends re-named mine the "XR Valdez" due to the Acerbis mongo gas tank it has. I almost always end up giving gas to someone who runs dry on rides. It's heavy when full and I sank a bunch of $$ into the suspension to handle the extra weight but the reassurance of knowing I can go 200+ miles without worrying about going dry is nice.

Thanks; The CBR600F4I is a 2001, it belongs to my son-in-law but I get to ride it whenever I like It's got some cool mods too, he had the exhaust pipe cut down, re-welded and powder-coated, the lower and shorter profile look of it gets allot of questions and thumbs up from the sportbike guys.

Nice!

When the XR gets back to NC (wether I get it or it comes) You can help me do a check up on it

My Pig pissed me off again! The good, bad and ugly!

1st The Good :Well I finally get my new Supermotard kit. Delayed on install cause I had to order a new rear sprocket, a new wave rotor, new pads and a new chain.....I finally got it all together and dropped off the wheels to get the rubber mounted last night in Santee. hoping to go for a ride up to SCHWINN's later today.

Now the Bad : So after dropping off the wheels off for pickup today I get home and my parts package is there waiting for me

I got my new Ignition Coil and plug boot in yesterday (The Pig has been sitting on the stand since my last outing with Ride Orange when the pig died on me).

I hook it all up, throw the gas tank on and try to fire it up......nothing, so I re-check the coil and boot, they are good.

I re-check the Carb since I took it out and cleaned the hell out of it last weekend, it's good.....

I then did the old compression check, Good....even checked the valves, Good

So now I am back to square one, I pull the plug and short it to the block and hit the start button....

NO "F'ing SPARK again!

I replaced the coil and plug boot after finding them both dead with my multimeter, so then I think to myself "Damnit you dumb ass you forgot to check the ENTIRE CIRCUIT out".....

THE UGLY

So in the process of checking the Ignition Circuit out with my multimeter I get to the point where I pull the connectors off of the ICM (Ignition Control Module, sometimes called a CDI on any other bike) and check the wires from the ICM to everything else..

Low and Behold......One of the spades on the ICM connector is FRIED and broken! Looks like vibration may have cause it but it still should not have broke like it did.

That little POS spade that broke, caused an arc and shorted out my entire "F'ing" Ignition System!

I'll be going by Motoworld to see if my extended warranty covers this, I need to finish checking the entire wire harness and all the ignition related components with my multimeter when I get home today.

The wiring Harness for the XR650L is $289.00 at Bike Bandit.....I have been searching online and cannot find the ICM / CDI, can't wait to see how much that's gonna burn my ass for.

So the Saga continues... 4 failures in a year and a half now with only 8K on the odometer. I really cannot complain too much, I love my pig but she's like anything else, if you ride 'em hard they will break! Ha!

Here is my running track record of "Breaks"

1. Busted the left crankcase cover (riding offroad before I got a skid plate)
2. Threw a chain at the DD
3. Starter Motor went (warranty covered it thankfully)
4. Now this....

Anyone know a good source for Japanese bike electrical Components (Pins, connectors etc)?


Looks like I'll be catching up on some projects around the house while I'm waiting for parts and repair


http://i168.photobucket.com/albums/u...g?t=1194055358


Those are the new wheels, tires, rotors and sprockets in that picture that I just spent $2,300 Hard earned "F'in" dollars on and the Mutha "F'in" ICM / CDI took a big fat, wet and smelly dump on me! (that's me and my son-in-law ready to blow some holes in the Bitch....)

I calmed down later, had a beer or two and remembered that I can and will fix it.....

Details here: http: http://www.dualsport-sd.com/forums/i...opic=1768&st=0

Of course I will get her fixed, I love Her!
