Also, I'm tipping the scales at around 250 on a good day with no gear..
So the only way I could do 90mph on the wr is fre-falling from space with Felix.

As a parking lot shredder with a medium pizza sized sprocket it would be a ton of fun.. but that would drop the top speed to around 35mph.. lol

I would just like to point out that you owned the biggest turd of a dual sport this size of a KLR. Slow, soft, flexy-flyer, even if it did win Baja 30 years ago.

I commuted on an ATK605 supermoto, street bikes (including a VFR), naked bikes, etc. For a long highway commute enduro/SM suck. For shortish commutes on B roads, they're a ton of fun.

DRZ, XR650R (like this), KTM LC4, KTM 690, etc. are all good choices.

If I didn't have too many bikes already, I'd be buying that XR.

Yeah, the XRR is a way different beast than the XRL. And yes the XRL does have short comings...OP, take my opinion with a grain of salt...

Sorry for the huge barrage of questions, and thanks for the answers thus far. I normally am all about being self-taught, and the trail and error lifestyle, but its a bit more expensive when it comes to motorcycles .


How many miles on a DRZ would be considered too much? I found a decent DRZ300SM with a few tasteful mods, but it has 13k on it. I'm trying to think about resale, in case I don't like SM, the DRZ, or want to upgrade in 6-12months.

Thanks!

13,000 is not to bad. But ask the seller these questions. With that many miles I wouldn't pay more than 3000

1. Are the loctite mods done?
2. How often do you change the oil?
3. Does it have the 3x3 Air box mod done?

There are more but I'm not 100% awake yet hehe. Go test ride it and see how it runs, shifts, stops, starts and you know the normal

Look for asphalt markings on the shifter, pegs, bars, and levers. Is the shifter bent or ever been bent? Which carburetor is on it?

Also with that many miles I'd make sure it has a Manuel cam chain tensioner.

13K miles is nothing. It has that many more, four times over left to go. Lots of people are scared of miles for some reason. Does it run good, have good compression, not blow smoke, not make funny noises? Its probably just fine. Buy it, but be prepared to get addicted to pimping it out with performance parts , just don't worry about big bore kits.
