HONDA  XR650L Recommended Add-ons
 

 

 

Fuel Filter - A must for both fuel lines!
 
Air Box Snorkel
Remove by drilling out rivets in the top of the airbox.

 

 

Check you oil every morning,
idle for 3 minutes, turn off, hold bike vertical, check.


Oil - AMS Oil

I have read independent tests that consistently show AMS Oil out performing conventional motor oil by a great margin. AMS Oil even offers oil testing kits you you want to compare your oil to AMS Oil after 5000 miles. I run AMS Oil for 5000 Miles with out a problem, tests prove the oil could go another 5000. Go here for the independent tests.
