That's for dang sure. I have 4 and don't even consider that a good start. I'd have more but I ran out of garage space.

1) Pull in decomp lever and kick through slowly 3-5 times
2) Find Top Dead Center
3) Pull in Decompression when at top dead center and move kick starter down lightly, then let go of the decompression lever.
4) Kick!

Now use my KLR for my daily commuter (when I don't have to drop off kids at school) and for any dual sport ride if my Honda isn't running at the moment. If I'm lending a bike to a friend I have them ride the Honda since I feel more confident about my getting my big, heavy KLR through rough stuff.

I thought long stretches of road would be more uncomfortable on my XRR than it actually is. (My KLR is ridiculously comfy and has spoiled me in that way.) But the XRR is surprisingly not bad for long stretches of pavement (someday I'd like to get a renzaco seat, but use a simple SDG tall seat now).

The only thing I didn't like is the wind pushing me back because the XRR didn't have a fairing (I'm Sasquatch-sized and not very aerodynamic), so I added one. I'd still take my KLR on a trip to Alaska instead of the XRR, but, aahh, the power, the (relative) lightness of the XR650R, makes that bike so dang fun.
Your description right here is my exact dilemma. I'm torn. Can't wait to test drive each

Do you mean axle?

"i am having issues getting my hands on a front wheel spindle."

If it is an axle that you are looking for, seems the same as spindle, I have one or two laying around. I'll look into what it would cost send it to you in Ireland if you like.
By the way the CR/CRF axle is a different axle. I never found one that would work in it's place.

Doubt the link will work, but a brand new one is $42.80 AND in stock.

It's a beautiful thing we can still get new parts as easily as we can.

That place is pretty cool, never ridden there, but stopped by the shop in the staging area for parts on the way to an SM race. Where did you get the turn down insert in your muffler?

My local Midas shop gave me the turndown for free. It was longer. I took it to a welder and had it cut and added on.

Have you given any thought to a DR650SE? I had one and loved it. The bike seems to be placed between the XRR and KLR as far as capabilities. They do road better than an XRR and dirt better than a KLR. My was quite modded, I had both off road and Sumo wheels. The aftermarket is huge, as well as the DR650 thread here on ADV.

Just a thought....

Global Warming

I added a spal fan to My xr650r it already is a DC system (required)
It is a simple setup and not to pricy, It works automatically no manual switch in the circuit
the fan switch is from summit it can handle better than 10 amps more than enough for the 4" spal
http://www.summitracing.com/parts/der-16731/overview/

I priced shopped and best I could find was Ultra rev
http://www.ultrarev.com/30103018-spal.html

I removed the right radiator and welded on .090 soft aluminum angles



Drilled and added clip-nuts


Install fan and add Hi heat tape to act as a shroud
(may need to improve this with a larger shroud later?)


Drill and tap thermostat housing 1/8 pipe
one terminal goes to ground (not like you see in picture go to the frame or engine) the other wire goes to the negative fan wire


then supply ignition power to the positive fan wire
No relay needed
Now I just hope it warms up enough to try it out.

XR650R Service Manual PDF?

Hey BRP riders,

I'm trying to avoid hauling my hard-copy service manual on a long upcoming ride. Anyone have the PDF version they'd be willing to share? I can load that into my Kindle pretty easily.

Thanks!
