Cool ,thanks Denn10


FWIW, I've worn the same rear D606 both ways, with no problems.

Friends don't let friends buy 606's for XRR's!!!:p

What? No on the 606? That is about the only thing I have found that will put the power down around here.

Oh and +1 to the non-directional rear.

+2 on 606s. If you ride mostly street there are better choices. If you ride only off road there are better tires. If you honestly ride both about equally, they are an excellent choice.

These answers are typical for "L" riders but, Denn10 has just come out of the closet and got a "Real" dirt bike and some of the old ways are just hard to break. Denn you don't need the 606 anymore:lol: you can walk now:ride:

shoot, i ride about 15 miles a day on the street and i want some 606s seems like a pretty solid tire with from what i hear a good reputation from those who have previously owned

606 works great for me too, rapid wear is the only complaint I have, or the only reason to try anything else.

Rear is bi-directional I agree.


I'm running the stock tires on my 2007 XR650L. I'd like to get a bigger front and rear tire, what size do you recommend?

      So I don't seem to find my specific issue so here I am asking. 
      I have a 1997 Xr600r. It was recently re-jetted and has ran really well ever since until more recently it has begun to have this issue.
      Everything works fine. Kicks right away, nice and easy. Runs great, sounds great, purs. But when I'm downshifting and slowing down to a stop, if I let my hand off the throttle that's when it just dies. I found that I can counter this by lightly holding the throttle as I down shift (so I'm revving quite a bit during downshift).  But it hadn't done this before. 
      The only thing I've done that I suspect may have been an issue on my part was when I pulled out the engine to change the valve cover gasket and upon doing so perhaps when connecting the carb back to it, I may have missed something or made a crack in the boot? 
      Any ideas? Thanks

      Hello all,
      There's been a lot of talk about how to register a dirt bike in states that don't allow it.
      I just moved to North Carolina and for the first time in my life might be able to afford a bike. I've been dreaming about an XR650R for a long time, but they're not cheap. Plated bikes seem to be more expensive too. So here's my question, has anyone tried to plate a dirt bike by adding all the necessary features and having it inspected as a custom bike? Anyone know of another way I can plate an xr650 in NC?

      Hoping for some help before I throw in the towel and end it all!
      Engine starts fine, runs and idles well for +/- 10 minutes, but cuts out while riding once the engine warms up (175 - 185) and intermittently cuts out thereafter (any speed/gear). It will start up after 30 seconds or so (but won't run for long before dying again). No spurting or surging.. just dies.
      I've replaced CDI (twice), Spark plug, spark wire and coil, and most recently pulse generator. I do have a 41mm Flat side carb from a CRF (and it has more power than the old carb setup), breathing through a Uni filter. Also, sealed battery tender battery (hasn't shown low when trickle charged).
      What's next on the test/replace list? Stator maybe? Please help...

      I found a buddy that’s going to help me with the “Dave’s Carb Mod” after that what size jets should I order before we begin? I’m in Cols Ohio and 1140 above sea level. Should I just order the Dyno kit or FMF kit or should I just go to jets r us and order 2-3 from there? Thanks all so much help. Love it. Stay safe out there.
