Hi all, First time on the forum here. Not sure where to post this, but here goes: I'm putting an XR650R motor in an FZR400 chassis.

Start a new thread.  Title it "XR650R motor in an FZR400 chassis".

 

I think you'll find quite a few of us interested in how it turns out.  I'll be curious how much it weighs.  Also, how well it works on the street.

My Question is Why? 50+ hp would be tame would it not

I'm looking to make this bike competitive within the classes I plan to race it  since it will be racetrack-only. The eventual goal will be 60+ hp. Even then, that's not much, but my goal for this bike is to get it below 250lbs total weight and the handling is what I expect will be the thing that will contribute the most to a good lap time. However, the motor itself should be very good coming off the corners and very controllable as far as playing with wheelspin. All good things as far as racing.

 

I expect it will be fairly mild initially as far as power output goes. The internals are stock but the carb is a 45mm flat slide and the current exhaust system is only enough to get the gases directed somewhat rearward. Before I start going for big numbers I want to do shakedown runs to sort out all the (hopefully) minor chassis problems that crop up in a custom build. Then I'll make sure I put a nice Carrillo rod in and have the crank trued and welded before I whack it with the horsepower stick.

You really need to start a separate thread for this.  I want to follow what you're doing, but not mixed in with hundreds of other posts.  It sounds like a pretty cool bike.

Just picked this '07 XRL up at the end of January:

HPIM9208.jpg

 

 

It came significantly pre-farkled. 4.0gallon tank, skid plate, luggage rack, Oil Temp Dipstick, FMF Q4 exhaust with Uni FIlter and Dynojet carb kit. 

 

Since I've had it, I've raised it back to stock height, fabbed up some bar risers, Plastidipped the side plates black and put a grand total of 12 miles on her. This IA winter is showing no signs of letting up!

Just picked this up last week. Has a broken kickstart return spring( guessing because kick lever doesn't return on it's own)

That thing was just on Ebay.  Looks pretty original too, probably a lot better mechanical shape then mine when I first got it.  Have to love the 86 color scheme.

      I have quite a few things I need to thin out of my shop. Prices are for items only. Shipping extra. Please Pay attention to my shipping policy:

      I ship twice per month. When you inquire about an item, I will tell you when the next ship date is. It takes a couple of hours out of my day to get things to the shipping outlet so I will ship as many items as possible at once. If you don't like this, don't buy my items or be willing to pay extra for special accommodations. I will be as reasonable as possible.

      I will combine/box multiple items to save you as much as possible on shipping. Prices are OBO, but I am not going to take the time to box something up for nearly nothing. I have a very demanding work load this fall.

      It will take me a few days to have pictures up on all this stuff.

      so today I was going to go out for a ride, almost got to my buddies house, when the bike died, thought it was maybe out of gas, so i pulled in the clutch and went on reserve. I was still rolling so i popped it up into 3rd to try to roll start it, but no luck. stopped and pulled of to the side to try and kick it. the engine was siezed. this had happened before once and it ran fine after i let it cool down. so i let it sit and got a cup of coffee. i came back out to start her up, but i couldnt find tdc. the kick start would turn and turn but no hard point. it was harder to kick through the cycles and it has a weird squeek sound from the cylinder. any ideas on what happened or what the problem is??? it was running just fine 2 weeks ago i took it out on a 6 hr ride no overheating nothing. i has just been out of service because i cracked the tank in a biff about 3 rides ago.

      Hi all, long time stalker first time poster.
      Had my xr600r a few years now brought it with everything done lucky. 
      Anyway it has sat in the shed for 3 or so years regoed and ready to 
      Roll just to lazy to get my Lience. Now have it and I'm riding it to work 
      Everyday saving ks on the car doing about 200 250 km a week, 
      Loving the bike hasn't missed a beat but doing 80% of that 
      Highway I want to set up for 100% road. 
      I have picked up a set of cbr600 rims done some maching on them
      Got them to start fitting and taking shape but gave up on the idea
      Now I have my Lience it's back on. 
       
      Has anyone on here done it? how much work is realy involved? Is the
      Juice worth the squeeze?? Ect ect. Send in your pics cbr rims or not
      show me your rigs!!  I will have plenty more questions to ask you all that have
       Cheers.

      I'm getting down to the end of working on a nearly bolt on EFI conversion for my xr650l (and maybe yours too!)
      Our bikes only came with crank sensors so have provisions for mounting them, nbd.
      Cam sensors on the other hand...
      I believe I can use what appears to be a very convient casting in the valve cover that with a little milling should accomadate a standard sensor. It lines up almost perfectly with the camshaft. I've already found that there is some variance in how Honda cast these bosses, ie: with or without holes in them. Doesn't matter though, just a few more chips left on the table after the machine work.
      So what I could use are few quick measurements to make sure this works.
      Need inner and outer diameter of the two bosses(red and blue) as well as the center to center distance of the two.
