XR650R / XR650L confusion

Post  Chris_w_65 on Thu Jul 07, 2016 7:53 pm

My mate owns a bike shop with an offroad workshop, he races nationals MX and it took him a whole year to realize that the XR650R I ride is not the same as an XR650L. For a year I have been telling him it is a competition bike designed for desert racing and he has been telling me it is a dual sport - Finally he realized today when I told him neither the tank or the exhaust he bought in for a clients XR650L would fit on my bike Frustrated Frustrated Frustrated

Oh, that and the fact there was an XR650L parked next to my XR650R

Similarities between XRL and XRR
Red and white
Honda
XR650 in their names
2 wheels
Upper steering stem bearing
Oil filter

Anything else apart from nuts and bolts?

Not to mention the R is liquid cooled while the L is air cooled! I cant imagine how some people could confuse the two! scratch

Front wheel bearings and seals are the same - Not the axle, wheel, speedo drive or brake disc

Got a sneaky suspicion the air might be the same or very close within the tyres ?

Spring behind the oil filter is the same part

Another similarity, oil lives in the frame
