1997 xr650l gear slop.

Recommended Posts

hey guys i just got done tearing down my bike. when i noticed alot of slop in my front sprocket. well not so much the sprocket as the gearing i mean. i can turn it back and forth with alot of play. im pretty sure this isnt normal i put up a video to show you what i mean. any help would be appreciated.

I say that looks fairly normal.. I have a 600 engine on the bench (Same engine really) and just tested it as you did in the video,,Pretty much normal though mine doesn't go quite so far back and forth..

hmmm strange. well thats good to hear. i was getting pretty worried. that i would have to tear my engine down aswell and swap some gears. does anyone know if it is possible to put a sixth gear in a xr650l? becuase when the day comes when i have to rebuild the engine that would be a good upgrade. but im sure that wont be for another 5 years...since this thing is bullet proof
