Xr 500 ?

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a 1984 XR 500R. It started right up after an oil and filter changed, and new plug :D . It had probably 5-10 years of crap build up so i washed it last night with a ton of degreaser. When i started it afterwards it started smoking really bad. Did i get water in the crank case or carbs or is it the top end going bad? How do i remedy the situation?

:D

Did it also run rough after the wash? If it gets water in it will not likely idle for long. Did you look at the filter to see if it was drenched?
