I will certainly be tapping into your "big-boy" knowledge, not to mention your overall XRR knowlege.

The suspension needs a little love.

Congrats on escaping the friendly confines. Although, despite the fact that I need to go 2 hours in any direction to get to a decent riding spot, I love this town.

Wish I could figure out a way to trade a couple of rides with you out in AZ.

I gonna try to go out and run the Leaf River Dual Sport and see how I can hang.

I lived in Chicago/Chicago (North side)...it was at least 3+ hours for any dirt. It sucked being a off road rider stuck in Chicago. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't have wanted to grow up any where else. But, it was time for me and my wife to leave.

Now I'm 40 minutes from a staging area that has held National Enduro Racing events. There is so much riding out here...it is GREAT.

The XRR is going to be a handful to ride were you are at. I did it for two years and I even took mine to the single track of michigan . You will have some cooling issues, but, there is some fixes for that.

Your welcome to come ride in AZ. Bring your pain pills...your going to need them.

Send me your email and I'll send you a link to a 2007 XRR build I'm just finishing up.

Have fun on the ride. Jim

Question for all you XR650R owners:

I bought a 2002 650R last summer bone stock and converted it to a dual sport. I then went and picked up another 2002 650R this winter that was fully farkled out with then intent to strip it of what I wanted and install it on my original 650R. However, there would be a LOT involved in that process (exhaust, radiators, carb, entire front end, etc.) so I'm debating just keeping the newer one.

My first 650R was/is in outstanding shape with very little cosmetic wear (no boot marks on clutch cover) but I believe the previous owners probably didn't maintain it as well as they could have. The second (fully farkled) 650R is in a little rougher shape (nothing outrageous) and definitely has more miles on it, but I believe it to be better maintained and cared for mechanically. In fact, the owner gave me a gigantic stack of receipts with it dating back to 2004, and it included things like wheel bearings, coolant, and oil among other things. Plus I got about 10 air and oil filters with it.

My main concern is the engine's longevity. How do I choose which one to keep?

Oh yeah, FWIW, the newer BRP with the TM40, full FMF exhaust, and suspension absolutely FLIES! The first trip out my riding buddies could not believe how fast I could ride it and how hard it pulled.

Call me crazy...I think you've answered your own question...


















As a side note...you could always part out the #1 bike and keep the engine...just in case hell freezes over...

cdawg, the engines last almost forever and if it ever does blow up then you've just got a good excuse to build it up really nice. I'd sell the extra bike outright and keep the farkled one

Here's afew pictures of the stock t-stat and the Napa replacement(not a very good fit, top part too tall). The EHPS cooling fan off a Mini Cooper fit very well. Pulls 1.3 amps. Sorry for the picture sizing. Camera phone picture resizing on photobucket is limited. Either tiny or huge.

Clutch

Now that it is warming up I decided to open up my clutch and see why the lever pull was getting worse and worse. Since it she's a 2000, I bought a newer clutch bushing and hoped that what was wrong. While the clutch bushing was the old style it slid without problems (although I replaced it while it was torn apart). The hard pull seems to be caused by a lot of chatter marks on the inner and outer clutch baskets. Hinson makes a replacement for the outer, but I can't find a non-stock inner. Any recommendations before I blow $350?

If I get a Hinson outer, how do I transfer the gear to it? Is it pressed on or riveted?

Thanks.

You drill out the rivets and Hinson gives you a new plate with their tapered screws. Worth the $$.

The stock replacement is pretty spendy, My cost was $110. The customer didn't care that I could fix his O.E. fan, he just wanted the new one installed so I saved his old fan, fixed it and it fit on to my XRR .

My BRP is almost ready for the desert 100. Changed the fork oil today, rusty, nasty oil(very low). The forks are smoother and have abit more damping now. Just gotta swap over the dirt rims and counter sprocket.
