      Any iOS app devs in the house that can provide a little help?   10/17/2017

      We've been working on a new native app build for TT using a 3rd party's code base.  If we have any apple devs in the house that can help me generate the proper adhoc certificates and load them up into x-code, please shoot me a PM.  I have the full source code of the test version of the app. I just need some help building the required certificates and installing them into the app via x-code.  Please shoot me a PM if you'd be willing to lend a hand. https://thumpertalk.com/messenger/compose/?to=2

Hello to everyone here on TT, this is my first post here (I didn't find a presentation section) and this is my piggy from mars it it's alien green color.... I know "it's not an XR color" but I like it :banghead:

Right now it's different from the picture: black frame, Supermoto wheels and different plastics

By the way I'm another Xr-Italia.com user (Ciao RC30!)

PIG #2. It's a 1991 XR600 that I got for $350. It's pretty trick and came with an upper triple clamp with fat bar adaptors, a WP E-Series muffler, a head flowed by XR's Only, most of a dual sport kit, and some other neato items. It also came with fried cams (2), some valves (10), and some fried rocker covers (with 14 rockers). It's my project for 2009.

Those are some really pretty bikes. Maybe this isn't the place for one that gets MUD on it.......


Sorry my pretty bike is not muddy! Maybe you could tell me where to find it out here in the desert? :banghead: Oh by the way, I can ride mine to the trails right from my door step. Looks like you have to transport your supposed well used bike?

I found mud in our little desert!!


check out the ride report on http://my2wheels.com: Ride Report

some other great pics in the report.

You found mud or one mud hole lol! If you find enough water out here can you tell me where it is so I can grab some buckets and carry it back home to save on my over priced water bill? Where are you located in NV? Im actually going to try and make it over to the Sheep Range mtns. close to Nellis AF base in the next week or so and maybe, just maybe the snow will be melted enough that I can get some REAL MUD on my pig so it wont be so pretty!! But on the other hand I really like the fact that I can ride out here in the desert all day and go home afterwards and simply spray it down with a waterhose and it looks as clean as before you started. Heres another piggy pic

      So I recently bought an 85 XR600R. My 1st bike when I was 13 was a 79 XR 250 and loved it. Now I bought the best bike from a young kid who said it was running in his ad. Of course it wasn't when I went to look at it. But, the price was right after I talked him down a little. My son and I have replaced the CDI, plug, and coil pack ensuring it had a good spark. We cleaned the carb, adjusted floats (it's the duel carb set up) and discovered that the mixture screw was missing, which we replaced. My son managed to get it started a few times by relentlessly kicking it over because he's 15. Haha. It idled unpredictably and cut out mostly within a minute not to be started again until it cooled. It ran long enough once for me to ride it up and down the road a few times backfiring with almost every gear shift for about ten minutes tops. It seemed underpowered but was still able to lift the front wheel off the ground slightly during takeoff. Now I didn't tell you that I had bought a compression gage and checked it prior to all this. It was roughly 70psi which I was told by a coworker was plenty to get it started and ride on. With all the difficulty starting it I decided to check the Haynes Manuel that I have and check the actual compression spec which I should have done from the beginning. Now that I realize I'm at/under 1/2psi compression I'm doing a little research as to what to do now. I'm not a mechanic, but I've gotten my hands in there doing simple repairs and whatnot. If I have a manual I'm pretty much good to go, but a full motor rebuild is a little daunting. I have a good friend that is an auto mechanic that lives right down the street that just started getting into restoring bikes that is willing to help me out. My biggest concern is the availability of parts for this motor. I've seen some stuff here and there on the web, but I'm looking for any suggestions that can point me in the right direction. I Really LOVE this bike and would love to see it ressurected, but I'm afraid I'm going to get too deep in to my pocket to have it make sense. Any info or suggestions welcome!

      I have some new rims in sizes 18x2.15 and 21x1.6. This would be inside measurements, flange to flange. 32 spoke holes in both.
      They are new, in chrome , good for adding some bling to a modern bike, or restoring an older one.
      I listed them on ebay.
      If you have any questions or concerns, let me know.

      Hello, I recently purchased a used 2003 XR650L. The bike is giving me a weird problem. It has a misfire under load. In any gear, if I am at about 60% throttle, is bucks and misfires, and has no power. It feels as if the bike is bouncing off of a rev limiter. I can eventually make my way up to 65mph if I stay in 4th gear and be easy on the throttle. 5th gear is useless, the bike will barely run in 5th gear, any sort of acceleration and the bike misfires and bucks. The bike came with a Big Gun exhaust slip on pipe, and a Uni air filter, other then that it appears stock. The male I purchased it from advised the gas in the tank was one years old gas. The first thing I did was remove and drain the tank, change the oil, and clean the air filter. The problem definetely wasn't gas related. I removed the carburetor and inspected it, it was dirty but I did not find anything major wrong with it. It looked as if someone half attempted to do Dave's mod, as the tab on the fuel mixture screw was ground off. I went ahead and completed Dave's mod while I was inside of the carb. I have no clue what size jets are in the bike. I put it back together, and the problem is still there. I ordered a new CDI box, and put that on the bike and the problem is still present. Any help would be great!

      I'm trying to find an XR650R that had already been tagged and titled. Any recommendations on where to look? I'm not having any luck so far. I live in GA and I'm definitely willing to travel pretty much anywhere east of the Mississippi (maybe farther if I have to). Any help is appreciated.
