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

DW, actually that's a pretty good price, usally they run $225.00 US each from most mail order places.

Here they are (on sale) at $224.00, if you can get a pair for $400 thats a good deal.

Levers

According to Scott they ran the OEM brake lever. You have the correct clutch perch. The thing to remember about the bikes is there was no real "factory" bike. As such one race they may run the JMB rear caliper, another might be OEM. The NV races they used the HRC piston, the others a decked version. Campbell liked floating front roters and Hengeveld did not. So, in other words there are multiple versions of the 1X bike you could build.

Thanks jbrown, I had yet to hear about the history of the rear caliper coming off the JMB CR500 bike. I am also beginning to realise that there are several variants of the same Baja bike, which I guess makes the build a bit easier if I can't get my hands on a few of the parts!

I usually stay on the sidelines, but posting that is just dumb.

I did your search as you suggested and got 29,700 hits. Sounds impressive, eh?

And then I did the same search substituting Baja Design and returned 236,000 hits.

So your lesson today: if you can't be civil, at least try not to look stupid.

Shock spring swap

Changed my rear spring in about an hour! Not bad for a rookie. Definitely the best way to get the shock out is to remove the main subframe bolt and pivot the whole subframe down and back, then pull the shock out the top. Thanks to whoever recommended that method (can't find the thread).
