Your site was pointed out to me by a good friend of mine TB650 who has also just joined up.
My name is mick and I am giving 45 a good nudge,I currently ride a 2001 XR650R that I have only owned for about 4 months after selling my HRC kitted XR630. I was very happy with the old XR untill I got my 650 and now can't believe I perservered so long with the old girl!!
My 650 had only ever been ridden on the road and it was bog stock when I bought it and didn't have a scratch on it. I have since changed that!!! I bought this bike to ride in the bush!! I am lucky that the forest is only a 2 minute ride from my house and once you hit the bush the world is your oyster as there are thousands of kms of trails to explore.
I am also a member of Old Bull Trailriders a website for over 30 year old trailriders and I travel away and ride on some of their organised rides which are a real hoot!!
Mods so far;
Renthal fat bars and risers
Pivot Pegz (wouldn't own a bike without them now)
Whipps alloy bash plate
14/48 gearing
Radiator guards
Yoshimura end cap on the pipe(a full stainless system is on the wish list)
Shark fin disc guard.
More mods to come when I can squirrel some more funds away.
Here is a couple of pics

Nice pictures.

Things to do on the XRR.

Switch to a oversized 280 mm up front. Stainless line would also help in addition to High temperature resistane brake fluid.

A fork brace is a big help.

Here you go for suspension:

Hey Mick, We seem to be following each other on the bike and bike forum front. Just sold my XR630 for a 650! Even though they are both called XR's you would have to agree they are like chalk and cheese, or more like a manderene and an orange.

I bought a stocker and slowly making a wishlist.
Renthol bars- tick (fat bar setup waaaaaay too $$)
Barkbusters- tick
Ballards rear rack- tick
6.3 Acerbis tank- soon (Fuel eco is shithouse)
Staintune full system- later
