Just got myself a little piggie. A 2003 L, bone stock. Got a steal on it, should work out great for the long rides and 2-up.

Here today -




A week ago, when I got it. It was completely stock, even with Deathwings. This is after I took the wings and smog-tupus off.



I have done

-get rid of whale tail brakelight, and donkey dong turn signals and put on LED's/skinny tail light
-skid plate, bark busters
-Dave's mods (thumpertalk) +rejet
-UNI filter air filter
-pull snorkel off airbox, smog-topus, grind header welds on header
-FMF Q4 exhaust
-Spud Shorai battery relocation mod (thumpertalk) +XR600 panels
-XR650R Countershaft sprocket + Supersrox + RKGW X ring chain
-HID headlight retrofit
-Oil Temp gauge
-Oil Cooler
-Dual Sport foldable mirrors
-GPS waterproof mount + power plug
-heated gear/air compressor plug
other doodads

I slapped a D606 on the rear, I think Pirellis are going on when these run out. I might eat through the rears too fast, so I might go Chen Shing cheapo rears haha







big

The 650 will be alot better for the longer trips. That stock front tire is going to have to go. I found that the bike is real front heavy and it is real easy to go into the corners a little fast and have the front washout. The D606 front and rear were the best tires. The real down side was that they wear out fast Swear . (still cheaper than a hospital visit)

I missed your call the other day. I belive I still have a pile of new spark plugs for the 650 in diffrent heat ranges you can have. When I find them I will PM you. As soon as the weather is a little better I will be ready to ride (two to three weeks?)

Congrats, nice bike. Why the XRR sprocket? Does the XRL sprocket have a cush drive?

thanks. yeah, I moved the batt under the seat on the airbox. I had some spare xr250 side plates laying around so I used those, the fit right up. I guess the XR600 plates work too. The XRR sprocket is thicker, contacts more splines, so you dont wear the countershaft splines. no cush drive on either.

that would be cool, give me a call when you have some time and we can go ride

dash... made up a dual plug for cell phone and gps, mounted gps and put on bike computer





the wiring octopus! ah!


have to connect the white and green wire on the micro USB together for my phone to charge. then the black and red to power adaptor (5VDC)... soldered and shrinked

this is my XR250, but I did the same on both bikes




powers both my gps and phone :).


the 250.. phone GPS running google earth.. have the maps stored on the phone so I can wander off and not get lost :)


regular GPS on the 650, for more dual sporting


Hi beam... the camera doesnt show it but the beam really travels a lot further and has more spread.. I need to mount a tripod and take some better pictures
15/s F4.0 1600iso


Lo beam.. same settings


XR250


for comparison.. my 4Runner headlights on HI.. 15/s F4.0 1600ISO... same settings on the camera

Looking good! thumb

What tank is that? How many gallons?
What did that headlight conversion cost? Where did you get it?

hey thanks.
its a clarke 4.7gal.. it's a 650R headlight I got off advrider, it is pretty much unused. $25.. the LED's from shucks for $10, the HID kit off ebay for $30... so $65 for the headlight setup.. plus some wiring and a relay.
this weekend I am taking that stupid deathwing off. I can't stand it any longer


went riding around by my house today.. it was overcast, but with some nice sunshine mixed in :)
