Hello from North Idaho

Post  Shad Mcdaniel on Sat Jun 20, 2015 3:29 am

Hello all,
Name is Shad. Got a 2004 xr 650. Looking to do some mods and get it ready to ride the T1 Tour of Idaho in 2016. Looking for any advice for setup of such a bike for such a ride. Already going to open it up a bit with new jets and exhaust, mod the intake. Changing sprockets to 13f/48r. Im about 240# and then with gear I'm guessing I'll be around 300# or better for the trip. Wondering what the best setting would be for the stock suspension? Looking forward to see what others suggest. Thanks

Your going to want to re spring your suspension, stock setup is for about 170lb rider with the stock tank. As soon as you put a desert tank and you on their it will be way to soft. If you really want to do it right hand the shock and forks to a suspension shop and have them rebuilt, it will run around $600 with new springs but it will be a night and day difference when the suspension is set up for your specific weight. Switch to a 14t front sprocket, IMS 4.6 tank.
