    Anyone offer some suspension setting suggestions for a 90kg rider? The stock setup is far too soft. Until I get a heavier rear shock can anyone recommend some settings to try in the interim?

    XR650 for sale

    HI GUYS,

    I have only just looked at the website for the fitting time ever due to maybe parting with my big red pig.
    I hope im not breaking any rules by posting my bike here as i have no idea what its all about,
    Any way here goes, 2002 XR 650. Has been warranted and road rego before so fitted with blinkers break lights n things.
    15,000 km always garaged road geared at the moment.
    Rego on hold.
    Beautiful condition only normal rub marks on foot peg area.
    1 owner.
    Im not a great forum/ web page person so email or txt / phone would be best.
    Thinking of trademe it but at the right price im ok with doing the deal before i do that.

    American Import Nightmare

    Hi folks

    I recently brought an 03 XR650R into the country but am finding it is not possible to register here as doesn't have the right frame stamp to say it complies with NZ safety standards.

    My only option now is to get dispensation from NZTA (not holding my breath) or swap the frame for an NZ one.

    Does anyone know where i could find a frame?

    cheers

    Yep, welcome to my world. Think I saw your post on facebook. My brother is in the same situation with a BRP that came from the US. Originally sold as trail model so no way it can get registered in NZ. Really annoying as it's identical to my 03. I've been trying to track down a wrecked one for a year or so - thought I'd found a stolen/retrieved but owner was going to rebuild.
    Of course NZTA want $180 just to receive your application but I wouldn't hold my breath on an outcome - if you get lucky let me know.

    10.5K?? No wheel options? No oversize tank? Surely a high output stator?? Don't mean to be disrespectful but this bothers me - it just drives prices up unrealistically. For 6K more you can be into a 690 or 701. My '03 owes me 5K and I think that is realistic. Clarke tank, CBR and factory wheels. More miles but that's no biggy on a BRP.
    But good on you for having a crack I guess.

    Was your XR650R the motard that was listed up on TradeMe not long ago?
