Thats impressive mileage on that 650l !!!
Did you do any mods for improved cooling or is it not an issue ??

You can make an XRL do just about anything. There are well developed recipes to make an XRL do whatever you want. Dirt bike to adventure cruiser and everything in between.

How much does KTM pay you to shit up Honda threads. Jesus.

Great bike, and can cut up to 40lbs (iirc) with some mods. Bulletproof engine.

Only owned one KTM.....same number of XR650Ls

XR650L only bike to put me in the hospital for serious injuries....twice.

Hundreds of thousands of miles on bikes.....only two serious crashes, both on XRLs.....perhaps my riding style and it do not mesh.

90% rider, 10% bike.

But I prefer my bike to last longer than 10k miles.

i paid like $430 with light, gps mount,lens gaurd,and brake line dealy and i had to pay tax, ohh and daryl gave me 10% off
to me it was well worth it. it will fit other bikes so if you change direction with your ride choices just swap it over!
soo it seems kinda spendy buut they also make an hid conversion for it also. i hated the stock light, it was a pain to adjust for me and this one adjusts while i am riding!
