Not a proper image of my bike, but I just piked up a Hero Cam and did my first video. It's a bit long, but I like it :-) The sound came out really weird, the mic doesn't like the shaking of the thumper but I set it to some music to keep it lively. Enjoy!

Video's not bad. The music is a bit cheesy:p
LMAO: A bit cheesy??? Dude, put some REAL music to that otherwise fine piece.

I'm diggin on the music, man. :doh: A little abstract and not exactly the music I would match up with the vid, but good tunes none the less.

...and since this is the "show your pig" thread and I don't have any new pics I'll just have to post up a family portrait...enjoy. I hope you don't mind the extra two wheels...:snore:

About 45m highway each way from my house to the trail head, then Up Up Up..

What a blast, I cant get over this bike. I am doing 75mph on the highway then off road fun. I took the 14 tooth sprocket with me, but didnt even put it on at trail head..

Colorado near Idaho Springs...

Should have seen the cops out today. There was a cop every couple of miles on the highway, every time their head would twist around when I road by.. I had all my gear on still while on the way home. They must have thought some drunk MX biker left the track trying to make it home on the dirt bike.... was great

Great pics...

I remember when I first starting riding my 650R on the street/road/trails. I figured something that much fun couldn't be legal. It was cool to roll by cops and just smile and give a nod. Ride on my brutha! :doh:

Here's a family photo for the "pig" thread....

The Pig at Powerline Park before she blew the front tire after 10 minutes. Didn't even get the feel for the teraflex yet

Pretty much done with my asthetic transformation, always some more mods needed like installing HRC kit, fluidyne radiators, and other little misc stuff but heres the pig after some upgrades and cleaning up! Mines the ones with red tank and xrs graphics.

      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 ?
