Hello from the Netherlands, again . . .

Post  Ivo Noort on Tue Jun 16, 2015 5:09 am

Cool to see a few 'landgenoten' on this forum.
As stated before using the XR650R for what it was built for is not an option overhere.
So yes I've also bought me a converted 2000 XR650R Supermotard.
I've wanted one for years but no funds as they are quite rare and relatively expensive overhere.
Started riding SM's about 6 years ago with an XT600E fully converted.
But that was stolen from my backyard . . . mad as heck

So I decided to save up for the SM I really wanted and also wait for a specimen worthy of my hard earned cash. Cool
I think I found one. banana



It is equipped with:
- Leo Vince X3 full system exhaust (very loud)
- Braking wavedisk and caliper
- Excel rims
- SM plastics

No engine or suspension upgrades yet so any tips on those fronts are more then welcome. rider

Happy Thumping! What a Face

Hoi Ivo,

Welkom banana  Ik ben ook net nieuw hier Cool I have mine for 2,5 weeks now.
http://www.xr650rforum.com/t2324-hello-from-the-netherlands

Mine is converted with the same parts (exhaust, brakes and rims).
I put back the spark arrestor in the muffler as an open LeoVince is really too loud and I think the 'bekeuring' for a loud pipe is a waste of money Wink The current 4-stroke sound is good enough for me.

Where do you live? I'm around Hilversum.

Have fun!
Antoon.

Nooit Noort,

nog een..... BRP smile


What's 'relatively expensive' there?
Just curious what goes for what there now Bump
AndToon, tell the coppers LOUD pipes save lives!
And don't buy a ProCircuit T4, it gives the word "loud" an entirely new meaning Bump
