After 3 years of slowing moding the bike. I got it to all black and white. Just need to powder coat the rear rack so it stays black. :bonk:

Worked on pig jumping for the afternoon. My wife got a couple pix to share:

This is not the landing from the jumps above, but even with the USD suspension and a Race-Tech Gold Valve the XRL is a bit heavy to be hopping about:

Well, here you go folks. Its a 2002 model with full FMF system, Clarke tank, stage 1 Dynojet and Uniair filter. Can't claim to have done these myself as luckily it was already done when I picked the bike up (only a week ago). Anyway, few additional mods planned e.g. skid plate, Rally Raid screen, rear and side luggage racks from Precision Motorcycle Racks and if the purse string allow, a couple of those Solstice Xenon spot lamps.

A photo to be going on with, used a couple of easy, dirt lanes on the way to work the other morning :thumbsup:

Got ahold of my Bros T2i, been slowly modding/ building it for 1 &1/2 years now.

Lots of duct tape and spray mods as well as some cheap cosmetics, but she has come a long way

im going to say you MISSED the landing ramp :thumbsup:

Nope, after landing, there is a berm to make a turn. But on the pig, it's really hard to get slowed down enough to make the turn. So I usually just goose it and jump the berm too. The compression in the photo is from landing on the flat ground at a fairly slow speed. Here is a pic of my son making a turn on the berm:

Me, with too much speed to make the turn on the berm:

Long delayed rebuild nearly done!

XR600small.jpg

Bought this bike 1.5 yrs ago. It was a tatty basket case with oil leaks, rattly top end, rusty frame and rounded off bolt heads.

Stripped it down and had the frame PC'ed and started putting it together. Things got in the way and time flew. Finally put some effort ond got it running. Rode 30k's to work this morning and all worked fine.

New bore and piston, timing chain, new 3 and 4th gears and c shaft, new bearings and seals. Ultrasoinc cleaned carb.

Baja, DS Kit, Trailtech Vapor. Dirtbagz

Some odds and ends are coming in, like bigger Clarke tank.

Stuff to do: Make a dashboard out of alu so I can see the Vapor. Get the header and exhaust heat painted. Make a rack for my downhill skateboard and stuff. New or clean up sdepanels, new seatcover.

Want to do: New head and rocker cover, better carb. Studded tire for the winter

Thanks to my brother for making me get on with it. Pwrpap and Cyclewizard for getting me the piston, Horri, for good advice and all way helping, elsalvadorklr for inspiration!

Did a 'lil work that was needed and some that wasn't.

New chain & sprockets, (14/48 - back to stock for now)

New steering head bearings, races & seals

New moto-z tyres.

New fork boots - black

New (to me) head/tail/brake lights & blinkers.(not completely hooked up yet)

New black paint on the side plates

New (to me) 2007 CRF fenders

New rear wheel bearings

New rear fender bag

New MX boots (I got for Christmas)

New AFX helmet on it's way

Almost ready to rip for the season!

Got rid of all the blue. I really didn't like the way the blue looked with the rest of the bike.

Trying to decide if I want to paint some sort of stripes on the tank...??? (opinions welcome).

There are shots of when I first bought it, then how it looked for the last 2 seasons, & then some of how it looks now...

Pics.....

      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 ?
