XR 650r

Recommended Posts

Hi all, hoping some of you can point me in the right direction with this one, I've just had a complete engine rebuild on my XR 650r and fitted a D&G tailpipe, breaking her in gently but I've noticed the bike splutters at high revs in top gear, any thoughts, I'm hoping it just needs re-jetting, thanks all

What jets are in it currently? Are there any mods other than the DG pipe?

Thanks bud, not to sure myself to be honest! No other mods though, the D&G replaced a Doma tailpipe I blew out before the rebuild tho and all I know is that the header pipes are aftermarket aswell, was thinking of just taking it in to have it properly dyno jetted, worth it?

If you have the stock carb, get a 17mm socket, I think, and remove the float bowl drain/plug. Then use an 8mm? socket and take out the main jet.

 

Look at the number on it.

If it's not a 170 or larger, get one and change it.

Then run it around and see how it runs.
