Here's my old XR650R.. Definitely a poor man's 690E for sure... Zoom zoom! Kick and some other things did bother me enough though....

talla is betta

I do like the ADV-Tall size. Good for dirt, yet completely capable of day-after-day of highway riding. It'll haul your big lanky ass plus 100 pounds, from 5 to 105 mph, if the trail's wide enough...

How do you determine its a 2005.5?

I have a vin, last 6 digits are a sequential number, is there a serial number cut off or something?

Thanks

Curious about this myself. This one is made 01/05 but it appears to have all the characteristics of a '05.5...

thx

One of the easiest ways to determine an 05 from an 05.5 is a glance at the front exhaust header shield. 05 has holes , 05.5 is solid.

BTW - KTM never really produced a true 05 model, they were 04's with some cosmetic changes. 05.5' were early release 06 models.

Exhaust shield is solid, has the recessed seat like an '05.5 or '06. But still made in 01/05 so it should be a '05 not a '05.5. I guess you can measure the rear rim width too?

It's interesting that I have a "true 05.5" - based on KTM dealernet info, with all the 05.5 things (exhaust shield, seat, etc.), still most of the parts have the '04 year stamped in them:)
