i have full exhaust , K&N filter and the jetting is almost max out for the OEM carb and  my plug looks a little too clean for  top end 

Again so what so does mine and again the OEM carb works just fine.  Why come on here and ask for advice when you won't take it?  If you already know the answer then why ask the question.

Wiseco 102mm, 10.5-1 compression, cyclewizard #10 camshaft, ported head, big valves, big fin head, full FMF exhaust, Uni air filter, oil cooler, intake mods, Clarke 4.7 tank with OEM petcock. Have no idea why you think the gas tank is an issue.  It doesng matter what the gas comes out of as long as you have gas.

dude what are you talking about. didn't ask you anything. dumb asses like you mess up these fourms. I ask about the pump and people started asking about other things on the bike.

This post was not pertaining to a bike that was not running well. MY bike runs fine it pulls hard and I'm happy with it.  But there was more power to be made and the lack of gas to the bowls was a problem and i was trying to figure how to fix that.

yea my main jet is 175 and  the fuel petcock is a stead stream. But keep in mind i have port polish,  larger valves ,3angle  job,  stage one cam , and port flow on the head. and it still bogs a little bit when I'm cruising and then i hit the throttle WOT.

If those are Keihin jets, I bet your problem is that you're too rich.  (If the jets are from DynoJet, who knows?)  I have a 158 main jet in mine, at sea level, and even that is on the rich side.  I would be surprised if you need bigger than a 160.

their is no adjustment with the oem carb 

Funny. All Keihin and mikuni carbs have adjustable floats. They have to be set properly. Even the manual for this bike says so. But you do you bud. Good luck with that electric fuel pump.

Sounds right. Big bored bikes pull more vacuum and suck more fuel through the jets. So a larger jet would be too rich where as you'd need to drop a size or two from stock jetting on pilot and main jet.

The stock carburetor for the XR650L is a Keihin, and the float is not adjustable.  Your information isn't quite right.

so i went ahead and put the fuel pump to the carb and it seems to be making more power  the clutch it slipping at WOT so I do know the full amount of power yet  I have not put a return line but its not flooding at idle. the plug is now telling its a little rich now i can go down on the on the main jet. will be getting more stuff for the end of the week. ALSO THE VALVE COVER LEAKS OIL NOW, JUST A LITTTLE BIT. I GUESS ITS FROM THE HIGH REV IM GETTING NOW WITH THE FUEL PUMP.

HERE IS HOW IT LOOKS BUT IT NOT FINISHED IDK IF IM GOING TO KEEP.

Im going to install and let you know the out come. Their is methods on installation to make a return line so the bowls don't flood when the  bike is at idle. i know from shifter cart experience  it gives a 3 times better throttle response with no lean conditions. 

I've never checked the pressure those pumps produce but I know the Polaris stuff I've replaced them on didn't have a return line or a pressure regulator.  They were straight from the pump to the carb inlet.  The needle and float didn't appear to be anything special.  I'm not exactly sure how they work.

 

The pump you're using is a little different that what I've worked on.  Same concept I guess.

yea its only 14 lpm. going to do  the return line then re jet. It made more power. and it revs faster now.

      Contemplating picking up a BRP in the near future and looking for some perspective.The current owner claims that the bike has about six hundred hours on it, but there's no way for me to confirm as the odo's not accurate.
       
      I know brp's have a reputation for running forever on stock top ends, but they must eventually have an expiration date. What should I look for on a high mileage bike like this to make sure I'm not setting myself up for disappointment? Also, What are some non engine/transmission related issues I should look for?

      Guys, 
      Have been riding my 650L for over a year and a half and have been loving every second! In August I moved back to Reno after finishing up my masters at Arizona State. I have been spending most of my time riding around verdi to stampede and the Dog Valley road area. Always looking for riding buddies. 
      Was curious what everyone was doing as far as Daves mods or jet kit for the upper elevations 4,000 to 8,000 feet?
      FMF Q4 exhaust, smog delete done so far!
       
      Thanks!

      Hey dear folk!
       
      I need your help.
       
      A bit of background info, I’m a complete noob when it comes to holding a wrench and doing anything more than filling up the bike. I have however had an interest for as long as I’ve had a bike to make it mine, and that’s why I’m writing to you now. I just bought a donor bike, a Honda NX650 which a friend of mine is helping me fix up and then modify to my liking (I’m hoping to end up with a gorgeous scrambler in about 9 months).
       
      We found a hairline scratch in the cylinder and need to bore it. This leads me to my question.
       
      Should I get a 1st overbore performance piston or keep the compression ratio as is? If so is there anything in particular I will need to modify to tolerate the high compression piston?
       
      If I do get the performance piston, should I also get a new carburetor, hot cam, and new exhausts? I am planning on new exhausts anyway (2-1 from an XRL) and I’m planning on removing the airbox and getting a K/N pod air filter.
       
      Again, keep in mind I know nothing, my friend has however fixed up a bunch of XRLs and cars but never really used performance parts. Help me out with the decision please, I would also like to keep the whole build to a reasonable cost (I know this is a very relative number).
       
      I should also add that I want to keep the DNA of the bike, for example keeping the fuel tank instead of switching to a smaller rounder one as one usually sees in most custom builds. The aim of the whole build is to have an insanely fun bike to ride, both in the city and off-road, as well as giving it a bunch of my personality 😊
       
      Thanks a lot for any help!
       
      Best,

      I've been rebuilding/restoring an XR650R for some years now (after toasting the motor in 2013). Sent the motor off to be rebuilt, had a local shop rebuild my forks and shock, and took care of most everything else myself.
      As of a couple months ago I had almost everything assembled and ready to run.

       
      As a final check before adding fluids to the bike, I decided to stick my boroscope into cylinder and take a look. The results were concerning.

       
      These boroscope pics looked so gnarly that I pulled the head off the motor to get a more thorough look.

       
      To say that I'm concerned is an understatement. I have pics of the motor internals pre-rebuild, and can confirm that this is definitely a new piston and replated cylinder. I also have all the old parts from the motor, so it does have a new cam, connecting rod, valves, and basically everything else I expected to have replaced.
      The builder "ran the motor briefly to confirm everything ran alright" and then shipped it back to me. I reached out to him with these pics and he said,
      The piston looks like this because he had it machined from 12:1 to 11:1 compression. The streaks on the cylinder wall are normal for one that isn't broken in yet. Regarding the valve impacts in the piston head: "My concern is that something may have passed through the cylinder. How does it run?" I've never run this motor. I can feel these streaks in the cylinder wall with my fingernail. Did he re-use a piston from some other motor?
      Is this dude jerking my chain or is this motor fine to run?
      He's a fairly well-known builder in the XR community and was recommended to me by guys in the (now-gone) XR650R forum.

      I got my XR600r dirt bike giving me a carb issue that I just can not get worked out. It starts first kick and idles well, throttle cracks off nice and crisp when you whack it, but if you ease into the throttle to just above idle it's a spit and sputter pile of shit! Lol. I can turn the idle speed adjustment up to a fast idle and it starts spitting and studdering just the same. Done a lot of research and it points to the pilot circuit. I put a rebuild kit in it and have taken it apart and cleaned it seriously 12 times now. I'm at the point of looking for a different carb body to try. They're about $100 though. A new keihn carb is $250 on eBay. Any thoughts? That pilot adjust screw doesn't seem to adjust anything until it's fully seated or falling out. It has ran ok in that idle to 1/4 throttle circuit before but it don't now. The last 6 removal/cleanings haven't made any changes, previous ones did improve the throttle snap when you whack it.
      The main needle clip is on the middle groove.
      I checked for air leak with some starting fluid when it was idling and seen no change to the way it ran, indicating no leaks. 
      Bike has stock jet sizes, foam filter, stock exhaust. 1,830' elevation here in South Dakota. 
      I'm baffled..
