HELP!!! White Bros e Series exhaust disc question???

Recommended Posts

They say 4 is the same as stock. I am currently running 10 on my 650L. The lowest I would ever go is 6.

Yep, more discs = more air flow = louder pipe

Less discs = less air flow = quiter pipe.

You may want to rejet if you run all the disks. If you dont want to rejet, keep it closer to stock setting IE 4 discs. Thats if you havent rejetted already. :)

I've been running 12 discs on my XR600 for over a year now with stock jetting and it runs great with no problems, and it is loud, but I am riding at private riding areas where there are no neighbors and noise is not an issue. And now is when I get all of the S**t for running a loud bike. I understand that noise is a big issue all over the country, but as long as I am riding private areas that are built and run for bikes and ATV's and the owners do not have a problem with noise, I will run a loud pipe. As soon as it becomes ann issue anywhere I ride, I will cut down the noise level, and play by the rules. Good luck, Walt :)

I run 6 PLUS the quite core insert (any less and it runs like crap) for a street Tard, and it's still too freaking loud! I'm going deaf.

I had the E-series Pro Meg for 1 day and sold it on e-bay. It was noticeably louder than the stock pipe with HRC tip with less power on the low end and too loud to test the mid to top although my initial impression was that it made less power. Keep in mind that I did not re jet for it but my bike is jetted for the HRC tip and I seldom need to choke it during cold starts. (plenty rich) It had 12 discs. It was pretty though.

I curretnly run no disks with just the turn down style endcap and its almost as loud as those pos harleys. :p I am gonna go back to the disks though since I think I lost some top end speed. The only reason I took the disks off was because it was melting my turn signal. :) Now i dont keep my turn signals on when i go offroad but it would melt it when I put it back on. Does the heat sheild they have prevent this from happening? :)

Misfit. I have the 180 shield on mine and have an extra 1 1/2" deflecter rivited to the WB shield and it works great. I have gone to flush mount blinkers so they are not an issue but my white rear fender is still white which is nice. I will take some pics if you want. The WB shield is only 1/2" - 3/4" so most of the disks are not covered. and will not help you much depending on the number of disks you run. If the disks extend past the shield it no worky.

You "should" run disks in there to create a some back pressure because that helps with low end torque and top speed. You'll need to be dumping lots of fuel in the cylinder to keep up with that open pipe.

Yes, the heat shield does work. Personally, I think Supertrapp has the best design for the disc system with their IDS2 pipes. They have either a race or quiet core, and all the discs are deep inside the silencer behind the end cap. No black stains or melted plastics.

Even if there were no noise restrictions, loud pipes wear on you the rider as well. Ear plugs are almost mandatory so your head doesn't hurt from riding, let alone to keep from damaging your hearing. :p My $0.02.

When running the disks, does it matter whether you use washers between each plate or not. My bike came with 10 disks and two washers between each plate. It was very loud.

:o THANK YOU HAYDEN!!! ;) You just saved Roy (HondaXR650L) some $$$ for not having to buy disks!!! :) We got his fully uncorked 02 XR650L dialed-in as well as quieted-down a little by going with 9 disks and his jetting is the dynojet kit from bajadesigns.com with DJ165 main jet installed. :)

:p His bike is running worlds better than ever now! :D

      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..
