Re: HONDA XR650L OWNER'S SIGN IN

Did a road trip this morning. Ordering parts tomorrow afternoon once I get paid. God willing I'll get rained out from work and have some time during the week.

Marko it was great to meet you! Thank you for the good deal on the parts.

I said it would be cold.
I never said I wouldn't ride in it!

Re: HONDA XR650L OWNER'S SIGN IN

Soooo how do I start??

After staring at asprís not so perfect shaft



I said thatís not gonna happen to mine! So I ordered a fritzco (maybe heís a member?)15 tooth spline



Installation is pretty straight forward. Remove the cover



And thereís the sprocket



Remove the two keeper bolts which were really loose



And sheís off. Then replace with the upgrade and reverse the process



Just donít ask your wife to come sit on the bike for weight! That did not go well and actually you want weight off the bike !! Doh!!

Re: HONDA XR650L OWNER'S SIGN IN

Howdy all ,
I just changed my Counter shaft and did the 2nd and 5th gear upgrade .. Noticed the bearings on the Counter shaft a little more worn then Main shaft so I changed them both. Next thing is to figure out what sprocket to go with .. thinking the Xr600 , stock and one tooth less .. I found sprocket from across the pond that has a wide shoulder but I want to find the sprocket ratio first ... I’m thinking if I can break 100 , I can cruse on the interstate .. anyone doing anything similar?

How much did parts set you back? Where did you source 2nd and 5th gears? And did you replace the counter shaft with a 650l or 600?

I think fitzco has a 16t I ran 15/45 on my xrl and could cruise 80 easily. So 15/45 should be right there.


Got some parts in. Grips, levers, unifilter, taillight, lp light, sprocket bolts, oil filters, exhaust clamps, bolts & more bolts, chain slider, used battery box, tank rubbers and exhaust clamp.

Just waiting on an airbox.

The post jmz brought up got me thinking about an oil cooler. Has anyone done their own? Without buying these expensive kits?

No auto parts stores had fuel tubing today. Wth

Re: HONDA XR650L OWNER'S SIGN IN

I used Megazip to get the 5th gear..shipping was like 35 and had it in 9days .. i went with the R shaft so i could add the kick Starter later. I use Rockymountain for most parts and not sure of total cost as i had a ported head with fresh valves that i was throwing on and with winter here , ..I decided to open her up and do the trany work.. case together and topend on , will put in frame soon and hope to have on the road by next week end but I dont rush things when i dont have to ,,,just savor the work lol

I recently found out how much fun pulling the complete engine in and out is. Laying the frame on its side and tetris-ing it in was kinda a pain. Thankfully I was working with a stripped frame.
As posted my shaft is on it's way out. I've got a fitzco sprocket to go on for now. I'm at about 18k miles I believe. So once everything is back together I'll put some miles on it while I get my bmw going, then stock up parts and do counter shaft & top end. And since it will be apart I might as well upgrade the trans.

Re: HONDA XR650L OWNER'S SIGN IN

I did a Venture frame replacement back in the day, flagged 18 hours Yamaha time .. I did it by blocking up the motor and stripped everything off around it , the motor never moved .. can you imagine pulling a v4 water cooled motor out ? Maybe the guy holding a XR in his arms could do it but not me. I should probably update myself but Iíve been out of pocket for awhile ..but Iím back [ATTACH]

Re: HONDA XR650L OWNER'S SIGN IN

I've got that Sutton oil cooler - it was just too easy to buy / install instead of fabbing brackets and sourcing the cooler core that would fit. But, anyone splitting cases and swapping transmission gears is light-years ahead of me in mech confidence and capability. The XR's only oil temp gauge still shows up to 250˚ (I didn't have the thermometer before adding the cooler).

Here's my current task: find cheap, shorty levers to pack as spares. Who's got the best source for these?

Re: HONDA XR650L OWNER'S SIGN IN

L model levers are hard to find and only fit the L . I would look at changing the perch to give more selection of levers .. I went with bark busters and kept stock levers .. rockymountainatv has really impressed me as letting you know what is in stock and wat they have to order as most online dealers lie about stock on hand to get your money,

Re: HONDA XR650L OWNER'S SIGN IN



When you low side a 2001 dirt bike on its first run, you come home and tear it apart . New boots, new Acerbis fender, strip the spray paint, oil change, etc etc.... anything not to ride anymore. My poor lil buddy was hurting
