@ Matt

I live in Bundaberg Queensland :ride:

I hope to be sending my head to the states for +1mm kibblewhite valves, kibblewhite valve springs, titanium retainers, stage two hotcam and port and polish. Will fit a big bore kit at the same time :banana:Thinking of painting engine mat black with new bolts (seen it on a CR500 and it looks trick) I can list what I have fitted if you want...like front guard is not XR :lol:

@ n16ht5

That is some good packing, keep the wear down on the front tyre. Just shows how much of a tractor they really are :lol:

Here's my new (to me) 2000 piglet. Lovin everything about it so far. My first dualsport bike and I think I picked a winner after about a year's worth of research into what I really wanted.

Thanks. I've been a street bike rider for 17+ years and thought it was about time I tried new ways to injure myself. I'm learning to ride all over again as this BRP doesn't handle/ride anything like my street bike (obviously). That trail is on BLM (government) land about 10 miles from my front door with endless miles of trails to explore in the Cascade foothills. Really looking forward to getting out and tearing them ALL up.

New graphics on the tank, the swingarm and the front fender:

Are those sidepanels actually red plastic, or painted?

      Hi everyone I just purchased a 1986 XL600r that was running ok when I bought it two days ago, but would bog down around 1/4 throttle. I drove it around some yesterday staying off the throttle, and she did fine , but not running quite right.  At one point after shutting her down in town, had a real hard time (10 minutes) trying to restart her. I finally got her started and got her home. I tried to fire her up the next day in order to try and tune the carb for the altitude Im at. 
      Long story short, she just wouldnt start (wheras before it was very easy to start) - almost like she wasnt getting spark. Well I pulled the plug wire boot and the wire was completely disconnected from the coil! I figured this wire having been super loose while riding was likely the poor throttle issue I was having. Well reconnected to the plug wire to what I think was the coil, then pulled the plug to check that it was super black and sooty. I replaced with a new plug and.... still nothing. Not even close to turning over.
      Whats going on here? My next step is replacing the ignition coil and wire with a new one, but anything else I'm missing here? Thanks.
      edit: this bike had a new stator installed last summer.

      How the hell are you supposed to get that thing out? I bought that overpriced motion pro tool, tried heating it and soaking it, and it still will not move a millimeter. Do I have to use an impact driver, or do I have to drill the peening out? Can I reuse the retainer once it is out? Can I just loctite it back in later, or should I re-peen it?

      This bike has only 249 original miles - is OEM including 1994 red, white, and blue color scheme, bike was garaged and covered and only ridden a few miles a year as it was NOOP registered for past 18 years - bike is street registered now, transferred from family, clean title. Only updates are new D606 tires, battery, and all fluids, etc changed.  Bike is in excellent condition and runs even better; includes original tool kit too!

      I'm looking to convert my xr650r to full DC power and was wondering if anyone here was using a terminal bus bar ? something like this one : https://www.amazon.com/DSC-TB01-Terminal-Block-Splits-Input/dp/B005K49NMW/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1510464051&sr=8-2&keywords=bus+bar&dpID=310kVzto9uL&preST=_QL70_&dpSrc=srch
      I'm looking to make the wiring a bit more simplified if possible, and have a single organized place like this that everything can connect to and run to battery would be incredibly useful.
      Thoughts ? Suggestions ?
