Even if it was raced no way they could hurt the bike in 3k miles...

sorry I don't know what it would go for in europe.

Depending on the condition and location in Canada probably 4-5k USD...

Keep in mind the bikes odometer is resettable so just because he says it only has 3.5k miles doesn't mean it actually does...

My uncle just bought a 2000 xr650r in good condition with street legal kit on it for $2,000 USD.

You could destroy this bike in less than 3k, but the only way would either mean you didn't put oil in the engine after pulling it from the crate, or you are dead.

I have heard of these bikes selling for around $11k in South Africa.

In the U.S. I wouldn't pay more than $4k for that bike. Mine had maybe 2000 miles and I paid $3200 back in 2005 when the bike was 3 years old. Brand new they were just over $7k.

guy's asking around $7k. The '06 was not sold in Germany and had to be imported as far as i know which would make them a bit more expensive. a lot of money for an "old" bike. he's the second owner and claims the engine mods were done by the po so he doesn't know exactly. think i'll pass...

i think ngk changed their plug numbering system. when i went last time i had to get the 5791 which is the same think as the other, just in the new numbering system.
or try this site for cross reference

I'm seriously considering trading my street bike for an XR650. I've been riding since . . . well, I've had lots of motorcycles and would really enjoy a dual purpose machine, possibly getting an extra set of wheels and tires dedicated to commuting.

I might take my F800R to the Honda dealer today and see what they can do - I have title in hand but I don't really want to buy new - I'd prefer a very well maintained machine + a little cash. Here's a link with photos & description to what I'm currently riding - the mileage is now at 2000 --> LINK

I haven't checked but I'm guessing insurance won't be too bad.

Let me know if you think this is a crazy idea or if I'd be entering dual-purpose nirvana.

Thanks,

RS

subframe mods necessary?

My top-end refresh has turned into a complete engine rebuild (needed a new connecting rod) and I decided to service the shock, swing-arm and linkage.

So while I have the chassis stripped, should I be making an mods to the subframe to handle the extra stress from luggage? I'm probably going to use one of the Giant Loop bags to carry a kit of lightweight camping gear.

Thanks,

dod

I have carried 40-50lbs on my rack without any mods to the subframe, and no issues. Upgraded all related to fasteners to the highest grade I could get a hold of. Just don't be a jackass and act like a superstar racer with your luggage on. And carry an extra long bolt, maybe even find a longer one.

My replacing of a crank case side resulted in a complete rebuild too; also needed the c-rod.

My first real trip with my BRP. A trip out to Death Valley a few weeks back. Many, many photos of the desert. This was one of my favorites. I can't say enough good things about the Giant Loop Mojavi bags. I was able to fit 4 litre sized MSR fuel bottles, a 21" spare tube and all of my tools.

But why, oh why does the bike want to spit out bolts? I lost two of the bolts that mount the rear fender to the end of the right side of the subframe (signal light mounts in the Baja Designs kit). I used blue loctite, but no luck. I also lost one of the two seat mount bolts (right side). Luckily, the mojavi bag kept the side panel in place.
