2016 Honda XR650L, 2,070 miles, $4,500

Recommended Posts

This has been my main backroads explore vehicle for the last 2 seasons (I haul it in my truck to the fun riding, thus super low miles).   My goal from the beginning was to buy this as a fairly inexpensive vehicle until I was sure my tired old body didn't forget how to ride off road.  I've been having a blast with it, I'm starting to feel the limitations of a 30 year old design.  I've got a modern bike on the way, better suspension..more power, water cooled and fuel injected. 

You'll want to be on the tall side, seat height is 37". 

Here's the list of mods, any questions feel free to ask here or via PM.

Tusk handguards
IMS super stock pegs
IMS flightline folding shift lever
Trailtech Vapor (ODO set to actual, I'll certify)
IMS 4.0 Gallon tank
MSR skid plate
TM40 carb jetted for 220f operating temp and 4000'.  
Innovate motorsports wideband a/f gauge kit.  Bung welded in header and lots of extra jets.
spare CDI
Sutton oil cooler
13/14/15t front sprockets.  Stock 45, currently installed 48
Tubliss front and rear.
Air injection blocked off/removed.  Intake snorkel removed
2 uni air filters
Shorei Lithium-iron battery + Shorei charger
Custom luggage rack ('custom' meaning something I welded up)
Foldable mirrors.
Clymer manual
14 new HiFloPro oil filters
LED voltmeter

It can be lowered by 2", seat height (with suspension fully extended) would be 35", once ya get on probably 32-33" depending on shock setup.   However managing a tall bike when one is less than tall requires some skillz ;-)

Nice bike, I have been looking at some bikes, but think I am going to go with a UTV 4-seater for the family instead.

Bike'll get you places a UTV/ATV can't go.. but NOT with your family ;-)...

Getting my new bike setup, not that much to do compared to the Honda.. the Italians (Beta) nailed this at least for fitting me...  Larger gas tank, rad protection and skid plate is pretty much it.
