Pretty basic Piggy which stays clean mostly due to our poor off road access here in Western NY.

Got this 99 xr650l about two weeks ago. Still need to get in in for a proper service/history inspection at a local shop, but runs awesome. Lots of power, all the standard mods were done. I just put on some rox 3.5" risers cause I'm 6'4" and that helps a TON.

Looking fwd to some adventures!

Hey All,

First post but have been lurking for a while. Bought a brand-new '12 L Piggie in March to get more riding time in instead of loading/unloading the pure dirt stuff constantly. Outside of mis-calculating my turn radius a couple of times all has pretty much been as I expected......it's a pig. Kinda like riding a Sofa only a bit more durable than your typical chinese made Mor furniture stuff.

I've attempted to void the crud out of my Warranty with the following mods so far:

Clarke 4.7 tank, smog delete/desnorkel, Dave's mods with Keihin 158/55 and a Dynojet spring, XR's Only skid plate and temp. dipstick, Sutton oil cooler, Supertrapp with 6 disks in 6 in reserve, red Plasti-Dip front shroud (I'm cheap!), Rox risers, Manracks rack and hoglegs and a Dunlop 606 out back driving a Pirelli MT21 up front.

Hopefully I can edit this tomorrow to post a few pics of the thing before it gets its' second thousand miles here at the end of the week!

Nice looking Piggie!

I've been trying to exterminate the White on mine....Yours looks great! Also what exactly was done with the tail lights? Although they appear to be stock lights it looks like the mount/rubber surround was cut down....could you shoot a couple of close ups of it possibly? I'd really like to avoid putting a WPS light in the back as all the ones I've seen have WEAK light and I want as much visibility as possible ..... bring on that TV set!!!

Hey Flappy it's just the acerbis dual sport light right here .

I'm pretty into the bike not being red. What are you doing to yours?

      Hey there, TT. What's good... you been partying? Hope so.
       
      ANYHOW;
      Ripping my new (to me) 00' XR-R on some fire roads last night up in the Lost Coast and WHAM! There went the chain! It took the OEM case saver and 1/2-3/4 of each mounting bolt with it... which was concerning, but not as concerning as if I had seen the oil draining from a nice new 'modded' hole in the case cover. Yay! (to cheaper repair) No! (to repairs at all) 
      Few concerns I have about going through the repair process which seems fairly well documented:
      1) Since I nearly sheared the bolts on the sides of the case, I presume that my bike will need the XR's Only case saver. Fortunately, it uses the rear engine mounting bolt to hold on, but still uses the two OEM mounts as well. The top OEM hole seems deep enough to drill easily... but:
      How far can I drill the LOWER one to re-thread w/out punching my feared 'hole in the case'? 
      2) I removed my countershaft sprocket as I sat there waiting for a my AAA flatbed, and noticed that about 1/2 of the countershaft sprocket splines were gone! Further, the retaining ring (w/ the two 10mm head bolts) was worn significantly as well, allowing the countershaft sprocket to do some proper movement...
      Any suggestions on how to fix THAT? 
      (I had this problem (#2) on an XR-L, and replaced with a PBI XR-R sprocket to limit wear, since the splines were longer... this seems a bit worse. I ordered, along with the chain, a Ironman front 15T sprocket to replace my worn PBI... but I dk about 'restoration' of the splines on the countershaft itself.)
       
      Any ideas? / Pictures for the interested... as soon as I find a website that isn't Photobucket!

      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 ?
