XRR Questions

I'm arriving to the XR650R party a little late, but better late than never




I got it last year & did a few things-BD stator rewind, H4 bulb, fuse panel, GPR stabilizer that came with rebuilt, side panel airbox mod, manrack under fender rear support,it came with a Clarke 4.3 and just swapped that out for a Sahara with the tankerbrace.

Got a couple questions for those in the know-

With the bigger tank, anyone using that tank foam stuff?

How do you try to seal the airbox side panel? Intake is quite a bit lower than my XR400

Chain-don't need one yet but when I do-Rivit or master? If rivit what tool do people like for that?

I got a case saver and a case of the Dumbasses! Can't seem to attach it with what came with it-




Looks like it might work if rear mount bolt and nut were removed and flipped 180 and not use the nut-Is this correct?
Trying to set it up the way I want, was going to do LAB2V with it last year but it didn't work out. Now I'd eventually like to do Baja on it, we'll see.

Lov'in the bike so far.....

I have the IMS 7 gallon tank and see no reason to add the foam.No problem with sloshing at all.It is just something else to break down and plug the filter imo
As for the air box i use a heavy grease to seal around the edge.
I use master links on my XRR's both ADV and super moto. Never had a problem.On my KTM 990 with rivet links i use this tool. It is small and works awesome. http://terra-x.com.au/chainbreaker/
Your right on the case saver
Great bike your gonna love it!

Fartduck, I have the Manrack for my XR650R and very happy with it. I like it because its not too huge, and wont be tempted to overload it. I had mine powder coated red. It comes with a support under it that bolts to the subframe too. Overall very nice and I recommend it.

That chain guide/guard should just bolt to your case. You might have to take the primary off and put them both on the same time with chain in place. Keep in mind some are designed for certain sprockets so a larger then intended sprocket won't allow the guide to fit.

No need for fuel foam. You won't notice it.

I use clip links too. Easier to fix in the field with basic tools. Never had one fail. Rivets are nice, but have their issues too. Just make sure the closed end of the clip is going in the direction of chain. And keep an eye on wearing of the clip.

Cool- Thanks for the answers!

I'm good with the ML, just wondered cause it has riveted on now.
Man I was all twisted up about that case saver, makes sense now. It fits around the CS I have now, the gold double threaded spacer was throwing me off. That's kinda what I thought of the foam too. No foam is good foam!

That gold "double threaded nut" replaces the upper rear motor mount nut on the left side. It is a spacer. You thread it on in place of the stock nut and then the counter sink allen head bolt threads into it. You will have to turn the motor mount bolt around so that the nut is on the left and not the right like it is in your picture. The other 2 bolts thread into the case where the stock "case saver" was.

Yes flip the bolt. The gold part is the new nut. Take off the old case saver.

^ Nice. Any specs on price, weight, who made it?

I just tore mine down to do suspension bearings, found a small crack starting at the subframe welds. It surprised me, as I've never had luggage back there and both owners of the bike have been smaller. I'm 150lbs, the original owner was maybe 180 or so. I'm going to drive around tomorrow with it and try to find a welder to do it. I've never paid for welding, as both me and my dad are X-ray certified welders on mild steel and stainless.

Wow great looking subframe Sean-O! I got one of the Globetrottin versions to try out....should take some of the worry out of loading the XRR's up. What kind of pannier system are you going to use?

XR Longevity

Been absent from ADVrider for a while. Saw some previous posts where engine longevity was discussed. I just completed a 8k km trip across Australia last October on a well used (but well kept) XR650R. I bought it not really knowing the true mileage on the motor as I am the 3rd or 4th owner. Several boxes of OEM parts came with the bike when I bought it last April. One week before I left on my trip, I decided to sell/give away all of the extra OEM parts that I'd never need again as I was leaving Australia for some time. I came across the OEM speedo in a box. The odometer read 29,xxxkm's! Add that to the 16,xxxkm's indicated on the Trailtech Endurance That's exactly what I wanted to find out mere days before leaving on a long solo trip I have no evidence that my motor has ever been apart, so if that's the case, I've now got about 60k km's on it. Still runs fine, burns a tad bit of oil during high speed runs but I think it's getting soft. Doesn't take as much effort to kick it over as I initially remember and it doesn't wheelie like I remember. Of course, that could be due to the 15-41 gearing it's got on it too. Top-end rebuild in the future at a minimum, including new valves and perhaps a cam upgrade.

Teaser Pics:





Ride report is in the making - stay tuned!

Happy Riding All

the weight is 2 kgs more than the stock frame...price are to be worked out at a later date

i cant take any credit for the subframes ... they were made by a inmate for m and a few of us.....im tryingto talk him into making some up forsale ... but untill we put them to the test later in the yr he wont sell any ..we were going to go the globetrotting frames but looking at the in detail we thought we coul do better ...and we did IMO....they look stock and are exact fit bolt for bolt ....our Australian bikes are lil different on the rear fender so the subframe has a few extra mount holes for the rear fender brace our bikes come with


i wont be useing pannier bags ... im gunna giantloop it

I will keep you guys posted on how much and when they arefor sale to the public ..if they work

Great looking subframe! Looks really good.


60K on the XRR engine is pretty good! Sounds like it's still working without too much issue too! I don't think you can expect too much more out of a thumper. Seems like KLR's don't make it that far, DR's require top end work around that time, and 690's are rumoured to be right fudged around 75-80 too. I can only expect Husky's, XRL's, etc are all the same.

Now if only rebuild parts were as cheap as 2-smoke dirt bikes.. =)

Umm.... I like my XR as much as the next guy, but yeah. KLR's make it to 60K pretty easily.
