Hello,

Im new to the forum but have looked on here from time to time for tips. I have had my XR650r for a couple years and just used it in the dirt up until now. Im going to make it a dual sport now and i'm wondering wich kit people recomend. I used a baja designes kit on my KLX 650R that I had 7 years ago but I didn't like it. I had issues with every part of the kit from lights to wiring. Baja Designs quality may have gotten better over the years but I don't know so tell me what you think. Any recomendations you guys have would be helpful.

Thanks,

Why don't you just stick a UK wiring loom / stator on the bike and fit stock lights ?. Can never see any benefit from these kits over stock ?. My Pig was a uS import into the UK, I changed the stator and loom; fitted a UK/European headlight and switchgear...couple of pressure switches to give me brake lights...job done. Dead easy and everything simply plugs in no chopping of wires listen up

Thanks for the info, it is always easier to be able to use OEM parts rather than after market junk. I didn't know that they had a street legal version of the 650R over there. Now I just need to see how hard it will be to get the UK parts here in the states.

Thank You,

If your friendly Honda dealer cannot help you then possibly the friend of friendly Mauser can, he's got a website for this bike even. Don't let the fact that they're both British bluff you, they're actually good dudes..... razz
But then again, this, coming from a dude in Africa prolly means zero to you BRP smile

I think the US had 2 versions, the Cal-spec (offroad only, most common) and another, roadworthy (again, I think), but that one's scarce. Parts should be available though still.
As an aside, there also exists an Australian version of this bike, fully roadworthy, also with bigger stator & rect/reg etc.
So, genuine Honda options are out there, just so you know.

I think I am right in thinking all looms apart from the US will have the full wiring / larger stator output ?.
