What side(inside or outside) of your fork tube is your front brake line on?

Looks like it's on the outside in the photo.

rdahl, That's the nicest 650R I've seen to date. Are those the Desert IT's on front and back? How do you like the front tire?

Rdahl,

Very nice looking. "Shiny" it is :applause: . Is that a FMF Hi-Flo header you got there. It sure looks like one. I have one myself. How do you like the PC muffler with it or vise versa.

Oh and,.. no holes in the sidecover? It seems bare without them, :applause: .

It's a little old and been binned a few times, but I love it, has had a few mods, airbox is bigger, K&N filter, Micron Race can, excel rims, Talon Hubs, not sure on the details, but it's had bigger Cams put in it, and some mods to the jetting, Renthal bars, Braking 320mm Front disk, Braking Calliper and braided lines to both front and rear.... Fast throttle, - more like an on/off switch! Pollisport headlight fairing thingy. It used to be a supermoto race bike, well, what can I say, it's fun :applause:

Thanks...nothing a can of silicone can't make new. :applause:

Yes that is the Hi-Flo header. nothing but good things to say about it combined with the PC muffler. With the spark arrestor out it flows great and has a nice bark. Sidecover is the next mod...:applause:

      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 ?
