haynes don't do one, but clymers do
ask merlins (www.merlinbooks.co.uk or 01403 257626) for the latest edition of the XR600 manual as it covers the xrl in more detail

[i got a manual from haynes which is for the xr600r and xr600l.Is it going to be the same as the clymers one?
Went to bracken on the weekend and they told me that there is a complete manual for the xr650l on the net which I can download but I can't find the site.
Maybe go to a honda dealarship and hope that they can help me.

Any more info would be appreciated.
Cheers

This is the link (or a link):
Official 1993-2005 Honda XR650L Factory Service Manual
http://www.repairmanual.com/motorcyc.../5/16388/11194

This is a better manual than the Clymer XR600 manual with the insert for the XR650L.

Great bike choice,
Matt

PS I can't find the online version either

It's a GIVI Airstar screen. I think it's the A604.

The headlight cutout doesn't fit exactly around the headlight, but it still works fine. I had it removed the other day for a ride down the coast and was amazed at how much colder it is riding the bike without it.
