hows it going!!  I have a 2002 XR650R/ ALL BLACK.  Im looking to find the original OEM Wing decals for my bike but in a different color to accent my bike.  here is a pic of a bike similar to mine (all black).  The Red bike is an example of the decals I'm looking for, but opposite color mismatch to accent my black tank.  Any info would help, thanks!!!!

Check out Factory Effex.  They have about half a dozen choices that look good.  I had a harder time finding all of the choices on their web site than in a parts book at the local motorcycle shop.

 

I've had my sticker on for about six years and it still looks good.

ya i have checked ebay @#mineolaman, i keep checking to see if i can find what I'm looking for. i basically need to find the wings in red, not black with the XR in yellow or white so it contrast against the black ins tank.  thanks though.

 

and I'm still getting aquaitnted with factory effex, but it seems like a good site , i might even call them.  Thanks @#scottrnelson

I expect that this one would also look good on a black tank:

This one should look pretty good on a black tank too:

My son put a black tank on his and found a sticker he likes.  I'm assuming he'll send me photos, which I should be able to share, once he gets done.

My '88 XR600r with old acerbis plastics and baja designs enduro kit. Skyway(?) Cobra spark arrestor. Cheesy eBay tank stickers have been eliminated since this pic was taken. The original '88 graphics were pretty cool IMHO but, alas, are NLA.

      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 ?
