    i got a 93 honda xr650L for a new gas saver and play toy. she has 14k miles on her but is actualy vary cleen and not a lot of wear. needs a few things like all older stuff but all easy fixes.

    well time to reg it and get my motorcycle punch on the drivers license.

    i have cleaned it up and changed the spark plug added new gas cleaned the air cleaner (k&n) . found it to turn off some times when ridding and wont fire the plug back up. has a new honda coil/wire/plug boot. got me stumped.

    got me a few bugs added some at top. but the gist is it will turn off spark from time to time and wont fire till later.

    also i found tires i want but spec is 4.60-18 and thay offer 4.50-18 or 120/80-18 what do i get to match and fit?

    My advice: sell it and buy a KLR 650. Then you can be as cool as me and have the only one around you! :D
