Edelbrock Carb Modification - Honda XR650R (Fireball Prevention)


Agent2

When installing an Edelbrock carb on a Honda XR650R, one thing that should be done is filing down the front right corner of the carb. If this is not done, the sharp corner can rub a hole in the bottom of the stock gas tank resulting if fuel loss or worse. It only takes a few minutes to do, the carb does not have to be removed, in fact, it is easier to do with it installed. File only enough to remove the sharp corner, the integrity of the clamp will not be weakened, and by doing this, your pig won't become a fireball out on the trail.

Special thanks to Dafna for taking and posting photo's.

      Hey guys,
       
      Could someone please explain the numbers on a needle jet for a mikuni carb?  I'm currently running a 38-73 needle but a lot of the people I talk to say I would be happier running a 38-70 needle.  I don't have a problem with going with what other recommend but I would like to understand the numbering for the needles first.  I understand the nozzle sizes, main jet and pilot jet it's just this damn needle thingamobob
       
      Thanks a lot

      Hands down the nicest 00 or 01 you will find in the South East. These bikes are quite rare these days, especially in this condition. This era of cr250s were the best Honda produced, do some research! 

      This bike has been virtually completely rebuilt, runs like a beast, and looks incredible .Just about everything that could be cleaned, greased, and polished has been. I have a binder full of receipts and information to go along with the bike. Lots of little tricks done.

      Below is a list of parts, service, and modifications that have been done on the bike 6 hrs ago (probably forgetting some):

      Graphics
      Numbers
      Seat Cover
      All Plastics
      Plastic Werks Replica Number Plate

      Swingarm greased
      Rear shock serviced
      Forks serviced
      Bars
      Grips
      2 new tires
      Keihin 38mm air striker carb (from a 2000) swap; custom jetted
      10 oz Flywheel Weight
      Cometic Thin base gasket (for a little extra compression)
      Front Sprocket
      Chain
      Rear Sprocket
      vForce 3 Reed Valve
      Stainless pipe springs

      I'm selling my used but in good condition P3 Carbon Fiber Skid Plate. This is a very strong and beautiful piece that will work great for any DRZ400SM/S.

      To summarize things, I Recently made a purchase that i didn't honestly didn't do enough research into before hand. Basically I was living in south western Colorado where it was easy to plate almost any dirt bike, moved back to Pennsylvania and never really brushed up on my local laws here about the whole process of re-titling an offroad motorcycle here, because it's not quite as simple.

      I Bought a 2013 Crf450r in hopes of ultimately making it into a dual sport. I basically want to know the key differences between the R & X models.  And if some of these differences are easily interchangeable items between the two models to make the re-titling process smoother.  Does anyone know of any kits to help the R make the transition        

      I live in a Rural / Mountainous area of Pa about 30 miles south of Pittsburgh, where highway riding that requires a speed higher than 55 would be a basically never occurring thing, so i'm also hoping the stock gearing will be fine.

      Any tips or hard advice would be appreciated!
