With all the rain and cold weather, wondered what garage projects folks were working on. Here is a pic of my "winter" project.

Clean looking XR650R...there will be plenty of fast desert style riding of at the 1100. ;-) So you going to do a fork swap? :-)

That is correct, Honda XR650R, king of baja. I watched Dust to Glory and had to find one of these bikes!!
Fork swap? Why? Those forks are awesome, that was a killer design in the 80s. LOL Back to the Future man! The motor makes awesome torque from about 700 rpms to redline.

The conventional forks work well. Hang down a little low, but I guess thats not a problem in the dez. I found a clean low hr bike and am putting some aftermarket junk on it, the basic stuff the team honda (HRC) bikes had but keeping the motor stock. Was going to dual sport it.. but its so clean, will probably sell it so I can buy the misses some flooring and new sofa.. lol

I use to know everything about XRR's & XRL's...sadly forgot most of it...

Get the stock carb jetted correctly...I put a pumper carb on my L, the R's really likes them too.

Cheers

P.S. and Honda race needle
