That's 65C ie lower than the 80-odd the thermostat opens at, so you must be riding withput one or with a stuck-open open one. Both not good, so check?

Anyone happen to know what brake lever the 2005 1x Johnny Campbell bike had? Some publications say ASV but I have yet to see a photo with one. The clutch perch was the WC pro perch, but not sure about the brake.....

XR650R "baja edition"???

Hi fellas, I am looking at a 2002 Xr650R to purchase. The bike has only 640 miles. It is street legal. I live in Texas and the bike originated from California. The seller states that the bike is a "baja edition". He says that the differences are the tuning of the motor, the suspension, which has a longer travel, the jetting, exhaust tuning, and a few others I can't remember now. Seller states it came from the dealership this way and was a price upgrade over the conventional R models. Can someone enlighten me on this or tell me if they've ever ran across one of these bikes? I would appreciate any help, thanks.

I've never heard of that flavor XR, google turns up nothing, sounds like it's His Baja edition, not Honda's.

The XRR is the Baja edition

There was no Baja Edition XR. Perhaps he's confusing the XRR and the XRL and thinking, wrongly, that the XRR is a Baja version. They are two totally different bike.

The XRR was singly produced to do one thing and one thing alone. Win Baja for Honda. So in that the XRR IS the Baja edition.

Run away from that seller. Either he's a liar, or he is just clueless. Every XRR is a "baja edition"

Best to stay away the guy obviously has no clue.....other than winning the Baja many times there never was a Baja version. Each of the years were exactly the same with only one exception I believe and that's a clutch bushing??

However having said that its possible he bought it used and the salesman just gave him a line. Most of us uncork them by changing jets, opening up air box and either a header or drilling out stock exhaust. I suppose its possible he just bought it uncorked and the salesman just gave him a line about a Baja edition. Have you seen it? If it does have only 640 miles it might be worth checking it out, then again if he is a liar who knows what your getting in to.

my 2 cents
