    XT 550 fuel problems

    I would guess low compression mine usually starts in a few kicks . 5 after sitting all winter. Cold it is a little lazy to rev up but after it idles a while it is fine . I would assume you have fuel in your bowl and your needle moves and your float is set right.

    Trailer Lights Question

    Two options only turn an your car park lights [ uses less current than your headlights also ] Have your tow vehicle/trailer wired to a 7 pin connector then seperate the interior and park lights on the trailer and connect the interior lamps on the battery feed on the 7 pin .
  8. Good Idea to also know the bike is getting warm.
  9. Is there thinner plates and clutches so you could have 1 more clutch plate in the mix ?

    XT 550 Oil Tank Breather and piston rings

    I believe the only vent on the tank and engine is on the engine if mine is overfilled it would drool out of the top of the engine when running [ when I first got it I didn't know you had to run then shut it off to get it to the proper oil level , it is a dry sump engine meaning that the oil settles into the crank case when shut off and when it is running it is stored in the tank / oil resevior] . I've never had any plug fouling issues. If the oil is overfull [ or the rings are shot ] I could see that fouling the plug.

    Dirt bike clubs

    In Iowa we have 8 Department of natural resources Sponsered state parks [ you can free ride all year with a DNR regestration on your bike or other off road machine] out of state riders can purchase stickers at Walmart they are maintained by local riding clubs most of the clubs I'm in contact with have less than 20 members with 8 ot 10 people doing everything . Membership will spike when a new park is about to open or if it is a condition to ride at a private or a future park [ we were over 100 members before our park Nicholson Ford OHV park was a state park and the city required mambership to have legal access]. New members come and go. We were having an increase in people at our monthly meetings when a member went berzerk and yelled and pounded his fists on the table and 5 guys never came back so I would suggest not doing that { it didn't help}.
  15. I used 4 large plastic ties to squat the rear 1/2 " and I slid the triple tree down as far as it would go . I'm planing on getting bar risers so i can drop the front a little more I was suprised that there is no rear spring adjustment I'm wondering if anyone has taken the rear spring off and was able to move the spring lower by moving a snap ring or something I ordered a repair manual but it wont arive untill next week . Other than that it is a great little bike.
