My name is Evan and I am an Honda XR650R enthusiast. This site is my attempt at collecting all the best information available for the bike and providing it to all who want it. BRP!
please confirm the transmission does not have a seperate oil supply
eg uses engine oil for lubrication.

The engine and transmission share an oil supply. The engine itself holds some of the oil at all times, but it is a dry sump motor and most of the oil is stored in the frame.
like your site, lots of info, and I would reverse your home page picture you had me going there for a minute wondering what the exhaust was doing coming out on the left side of the bike

I think I’ll do that! Several people have emailed me asking about the photo. Haha
Evan, good job on your webpage…lots of good and helpful info. I have a 2003 BRP, have done a bit of work to it: Power-up kit, Hotcams stage 1, FMF Powerbomb headers and Powercore 4 silencer, Baja Designs DS kit, K&N filter, airbox/sideplate mods, larger Clarke gas tank, and a brand-new 1986 XL600R speedo.
There is quite a bit of hidden power locked away in these bikes, after a year I did the exhaust and put in the hotcam and power-up kit. The 1st ride scared the living #@$% out of me, not expecting such a difference.
Long live the XR650R!!
My brother recently asked me to get his 2001 xr 650 running. It had been sitting for a few years. After cleaning out the gas tank, new gas, remove carb and clean all passageways,jets ect……., new plug. When i start it it needs full choke and it wont idle. so i keep it reved enough to ride it in the hopes that once it gets warmed up it will blow out everything and continue to run and idle. when i take it down the street anything past half throttle it immeadiatly bogs out and wants to stall. any sugestions?

It’s either a clogged pilot jet or the float is incorrectly set.
Start by pulling out the pilot jet and verifying that you can see through it.
Thanks for putting this blog together, it was a great place to find some part numbers for my motor rebuid.
