Thanks for the reply. New battery heated shop. Was told by the maker of the kit that on some XR650R it just won't crank cold. They said install a programable CDI box and change the timing on the start point . I THINK. I know programable CDI . Told to put MSD-4217 CDI and MSD-8232 coil. If that is what I got to do I guess I will. BUT I don't understand. Why most will crank cold but a few won't. I am the type of person on WHY.

I have thought about that. I have looked up the part # for 2000 Xr650R for both CDI and Flywheel and 2007 # . they are all the same..  I am REAL discouraged with all this.

I do not know how to do that . I am trying to find out the timing of a 96 XR400. I think it is different . I hope I can get the XR400 CDI and it will fix it. I have not confirmed this. Anyone out there no the timing spec on the 96 XR400? The XR650R is 6 degrees BTDC so if the XR400 is 8 degrees BTDC do  you think that would help?

I am not using a programable CDI. I am trying not to use one. Don't have a windows computer and they don't sell the hand held program box any more. If I could find someone to do a program set up I would buy one.
