Ok I've got threads all over the place here so I figure I'll make just one for this bike. Picked it up like last May or June in Turlock CA, about 3 hours from me. It was a piece of crap. One kick and the muffler fell off. I'll start with pics. The Bike when I first got it. Muffler pipe totally broken off Ground down the JB Weld patch to find this nice lil hole here All the way ground down. Patched up I rode it a bit, then I had to get ready for a trip to the dunes. So I went and got my registration all figured out, which required me going through the wiring just to make the lights work. What a piece of $&(# job was the wiring. Tusk enduro kit gone bad. Some idiot did it, and the kit is horrible to begin with. So I just got it so that it would work for inspection. The wiring mess, and crf fender and tool pack I put on. Also maier hand guards and rox risers. Got new Maier rear fender, installed the crappy lights and just freakin zip tied my plate on for a minute. Took my suspension out to get revalved and resprung by the local professional guy, really awesome guy who does all of the local racers. Paton Performance. Finally ready to ride the dunes. It was a total blast. This is where I absolutely fell in love with my xr and it's ungodly power! Freakin ripped past all the wussy crfs, yzfs, whatever f's... XR power. Only problem was that I was in such a hurry to get the bike to the dunes I didn't realize I didn't have my clutch adjusted tight enough, so it was slipping the whole 3 days of riding and finally burnt out on the third day. Filed down the notching and installed new EBC clutch kit. While oil was drained I put in a new ricky stator Found this, a chunk missing on stator cover, causing oil to leak into the chain. I patched it up with epoxy putty and sanded it flat. Timing cap thing on stator cover stripped, got a new one, $15 for the dumb thing To all of you thinking of riding dunes, let this be a reminder to you to bring a filter sock! and dont oil it lol.
