Well here it is, you can't only have one bike ...

Myself also started with a KLR like () bike, an all rounder because I was longing to pack it up & just go away and disappear over the horizon, travel comfy over tarmac or gravel ... still have it , will keep it to it's purpose ... offroad traveling, one or two up.

Here on a 3300 mile trip together with my son around Scandinavia, only tent & own cooking for 14 days in a row ...




But it was also semi suitable for some lighter hooligan rides ...



But as stated earlier ... my buddies had both lighter & more agile bikes so I eventually bought myself a second bike

My nearby gravelroad hooligan racer ... don't carry any more load the coffe + sandwishes for the day. But holy macaroni ... what a bike All extra on it, Mikuni, ported top, bigger pipes, opened airbox with KN filter + alot more extra for extra watts, lights & pegs + winter wheels with enduro studs. Dyno tested to 57hp on the wheel.

My 2000 BRP





Couldn't be happier with the setup

I still have my KLR and love it. I took it everywhere a KLR shouldn't go and had a blast. Now that have an XRR too I've gotten lazy ("Ugh, that ride will be so much work on my KLR! I'll just take the XRR.")

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.

Anyways just curious what people had to say. I've read different threads about each bike but it's still a toss up. Guess I'll have to test drive each for the deciding factor

I liked my KLR.




I LOVED my XRR's.

OK ... found this on a Swedish vendors site, he's well known in the XRR Community in Sweden regarding Selling Mikuni carbs & giving superb jetting support as well for sourcing spares.

In the rightest column "övrigt"= comments, you can in some cases read out the XRR setup corresponding to the carb setup.

And a short glossery for the "övrigt" column ...

Names of guys that contributed = XR-Matte, Bergos, Thumperguy, Åsa-Nisse
Öppnad = Opened
Luftburk = Airbox
Och = And
Luftskruv = Air screw (Pilot fuel screw)
Varv = Turns
Ut = Out


Have myself opened airbox with KN filter, bigger exhaust pipes + straigth through GPR slipon without any baffle shit (earplugs is required )

With the above my jetting setup is:

Main jet = 150
Pilot jet = 27,5
Pilot air jet = 1,1
Pilot fuel screw = 2 turns out
Idle adjuster = 4 turns out
Jet needle clip in second notch from the top

This together with a ported top my BRP is Dyno tested to 57hp on the wheel ... according to the web that's approx 25% higher braked hp ... 71hp Unfortunately I don't have any info regarding the acc.pump besides it doesn't go in action before 8-10mm turn of the throttel ... the bike is snappy like a rattlesnake !

Can you translate the Ovrigt column ?

I've posted my similar results in this thread for my TM40

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!

Your description right here is my exact dilemma. I'm torn. Can't wait to test drive each

help

i am having issues getting my hands on a front wheel spindle.is there a similar spindle (same measurements) from any of the cr-crf models?
or would anyone have xr650r front wheel spindle for sale?hopefully there might be a few left over from usd conversions.i can pay through paypal etc.i live in belfast n.ireland but i assume shipping should be reasonable as its a small item and easy packed.
thanks in advance for any help.
