Finally getting to see the bike in it's element. The video didn't work for me so... Can't believe the shock didn't have a lock ring. How did that happen? Thanks for keeping us updated on the bike.
Prov 3:5 & 6

300+ mile Paisley OR day ride

That bike is badass!!! Am getting the itch for a new bike. But the smart move would be to dump money into my L. Am heading to Utah for a week that will help me decide what route ill go.

Thread resurrect...... I just got a call from Dad (CycleWizard) that his transport guy Eddie left the shop and is headed South with my old "L", the KTM 525 and a bunch of goodies.

Here are the highlights: "I rebuilt the XR650 from the bottom up. New valves springs seals 5 angle valve job new cw 10.1 piston new rod crank bearings new cw dirt track cam. No decompressor on the new cam. New cw sleeve, new port work milled and squared cylinder and head yada yada yada. New cam chain and slides. NX 2nd and 5th gears."

He said the bike pulls really strong through the whole range!

I'm stoked to say the least!

I will post some pics and impression when I get in the maiden ride!
