      Parting out almost an entire bike. Frame is gone, CDI box, and Wheels, Gas Tank, Headlight & Front number plate. Complete unassembled engine with 9611 miles on it. 90 pounds of compression at cranking speed. According to this is what it should have.  Checked the compression with 3 different gauges.   Valve clearance is good which indicates no cam or rocker arm wear. Oil did not look too bad that came out of it. Corbin seat, Super trap muffler, and just about all the other parts.  Shoot me a message with what you are looking for and I will be happy to take pics and send them to you along with a price. All items are buyer pays the shipping.  Also have some 1996 Honda XR600R parts. Engine cases, Electronics, Etc.  $850 for the motor and you pay shipping, Starter motor not included.

      I just bought a 2012 xr650l and it starts and runs great until about 4000 rpm give or take (I’m guessing) it feels like it spits and pukes. Also when releasing the throttle the exhaust pops and hiccups. I am calling the dealership to ask if they are willing to fix the problem as I just purchased from them yesterday but I am curious as to what the problem could be in case they do not offer to help for my “as is” purchase. I have read a couple other topics on here that talk about the vacuum lines being hooked up to an air cut diaphram but I don’t know what that is. The smog delete has been done on this bike as well as a slip on dg exhaust and the side cover has a bunch of holes drilled in it exposing the air filter. The battery has also been relocated. My question is what jetting should I have at 2000 feet? I am planning on opening up the carb to see what the idle jet and main jet are and if they were even changed from stock. Also if someone knows about the air cut being hooked up to vacuum and can supply pictures that would be very helpful. I know that the smog block off kits just plug the vacuum holes and the air cut usually gets disconnected. Thanks.
