    I was in Red Baron Bangkok last week, they have an XR650R in dirt bike trim, and a DRZ 400 in Motard trim.

    Gee you would need big balls for the XR, kick start only.....

    Can start it with your hand if you are game. The little "decompression" lever helps ,otherwise I don't think anyone could start them. Also they have a anti kick back mechanism so it won't take your knee out. The kick start shouldn't put people off buying a great bike.

    Kev-O,
    Very Clean Bike a Fantastic Example, Only thing doesn't look original is the Motard Front Mudguard and the Headlight is different to the ones back in NZ although that maybe because of the Year, Most of My Mates have 2003 up. Yours is Beautiful for a 2001. Let us know if you ever want to Sell it again, Lucky Bugger :D

    I just sold mine here in the UK, but I'd love one in Thailand. Too big and heavy here for muddy green lanes. It was like wrestling a Hipo.
    Fantastic bike though, brilliant for Chiang Mai dirt trails.

    Kev O,

    Keep us abreast if you relist it as there is interest in the Big Red Pig w/a plate from a few of us.

    Not sure about that

    It can get a bit tight at times for the big XR

    But for blasting the truck roads on long dirt rides its a damn fine machine.

    I reckon you would need bigger balls to punt it along the Chiang Mai dirt trails with any enthusiasm...

    Dirt roads perhaps, but even then sudden changes of direction are often called for... I imagine that Suzuki Luke and B&T would carve you up on dirt trails (until you come across them under their bike in the jungle, laughing like escapees from the local nut house)...

    Cheers,
    Daewoo

    You really don't need any balls to start an XR650R, just the right nack. Honestly you can start one with trainers on.
    As for jungle trails.........the XR is more like a bulldozer so except for getting over or under big logs.......no problem:)
    The only real downside is the fuel consumption, about 100KM per standard tank.
