HRC tip question, 99 XR650L

OK, I'm ready to uncork... I'm going to follow XR650L Daves recipe for the carb mods. I want to try tthe HRC tip on the exhaust side. Where do I get one? What else do I have to do the the stock exhaust?

:naughty: Help!

Do the carb mods. Take the baffle out of the exhaust. It's a little louder but it sounds nice. When I had the stock exhaust I took out the baffle and cut the guts off with a hacksaw and re-installed the end. Kind of stealthy. Make sure you take out the snorkel under the seat on top of the airbox. A Uni or K&N filter. Re-gear to 15/48 and you will be happy.

      I have this issue several times and cannot seem to figure it out. The four clutch spring bolts are the weakest bolts I have ever come across. I am not sure what the torque specs are, have the shop manual, have searched online and I can only guess it's around 4 ft/lbs. I have been told 8 and they seem to break every time around 7.
      What is the proper torque for these bolts?
      Should I find stronger bolts? I would still stick to the proper torque, but feel as if these things are butter.

      Prior to reassembling the case, I tested the shifting and it seems the center fork attached to the shaft seems to stick at the steepest section of the drum. I have cleaned and tested all forks and surfaces for smooth movement, tried it with silicone and oil. With very little help, it seems to shift ok, but without the help, it binds.
      Can I assume that once it is together the oil lines are attached and oil is added to the case, the binding will stop? I have tested every scenario short of assembling the entire motor.
      Should I be able to successfully test the shifting with the case apart?
