2000 BRP

Post  T2 on Sat Sep 08, 2012 3:53 am

Wanted to share my recent purchase and upgrades on a 2000 XR650R



This is what she looked like when I brought her home



She had noticeably been down before because of the bent handle bar, the left foot peg mount was bent and a few things were (let’s say for a lack of a better term) ethnically rigged. But like I said she has a strong motor with clean oil. Here is a list of what I did to her

XR only pipe
XR only skid plate
GPR upper triple clamp and stabilizer
Pro Taper oversize bars
Acerbis hand guards
Warp 9 wheel set w/hubs
New Dunlop MX51 front and rear tires
New chain both sprockets
New oem swing arm chain slider
XR only rear chain guide
New brake rotors and pads
Fork and shock rebuild
XR only wide foot pegs
New SDG tall griper seat
New Baja design headlight shell
Some new black side panels

I put a pretty complete tool kit together in a new moose racing front fender bag. I still want a computer and GPS for her before I’m done I am open for suggestions if anyone has a set up they are partial too. I got to ride with my girlfriend for three days in Big Bear over Labor day weekend. It was super fun riding my BRP after all the money I put into her. My girlfriend has a 01’ XR250R Big Red and Little Red like each other Wink

Nice pair! Trailtech Vapor's a good choice, with temp and various settable (LED) alarms but the temp readout you want, Biggie can become hot on trails. You may want to mount a 4" Spal puller fan to the rh-rad, helps in keeping its cool and will fit under that tank.

I was looking at that exact computer. Yes I would like to do something to help the overheating potential with Big Red. What are your thoughts on a after market higher rated (than OEM) thermastat and radiator cap?
