    Need help with Troubleshooting a 1990 XR600R

    You can be on the T mark and not compression cycle...is what Muzz was getting at..whatch your rocker arms while turning it over by hand,,compression cycle is the next time the piston comes up after the intakes close..you were likely adjusting on the exhaust stroke,,try it again.. B

    Xr650r Resurrection problems

    what i`m asking is DID it have gas in the oil...if so it can wash down the cylinder and lower compression.. i`ve seen this before,,,and a little oil squirted down the plug hole gumps the compression up again so it`ll start.. If that`s good,,then check the pilot jet again,,,run a small wire through all the tiny holes,,it doesn`t take much to foul a carb.. B

    Xr650r Resurrection problems

    Did you have gas in your oil???????? that can happen when the float sticks and gas comes out the airbox.. Sounds like you still have crap in the carb B

    08 XR650L Starting nightmare

    To the OP...you are on right track,,baseline from here on in,,,put your carb on this engine and see how it runs again... if it runs as well as your bike after a good long ride then look at that new carb for the issue,,if it doesn`t fully solve the issue then you have more problems elsewhere...

    Renthal chain for the 650L

    YIP... but stock length on the XR is 110 links,,depending on your sprockets you will need to cut to length.. B
  9. You didn`t buy one of those cheap aftermarket CDI`s did you???????? the real cheap amazon and ebay cdi`s are absolute shit.. you can check if it`s fire related with an inductive timing light watching the flashes ...an aftermarket tach will show tis too,,it goes nuts when it missfires.. no load on the engine...it should be almost impossible to get an engine to missfire like that through fueling...that`s an ignition missfire to me..

    Pig Not Firing Up

    you don`t need to run the bike at all to store it,,just put the stabilizer in the tank,,shut the fuel off to the carb and open the drain screw on the float bowl to drain everybit of fuel out of the carb.......you don`t want gas in the carb at all,,even with stabilizer in it.. B
