    Yet another idle issue Please HELP!

    tossing that carb in the trash and putting a good carb on would likely fix your issue...lol B

    Yet another idle issue Please HELP!

    all the arm does is open the vac slide a little..so when you open the throttle it does not have to rely on just vacuum for a spilt second..it won`t affect idle because the throttle plates don`t move unless you twist the throttle.. what is your fuel screw set to..how many turns out????? B

    2017 XR650L burning high beams

    WEIRD..wonder when they started using phillips,,all the XR650L`s i`ve worked on were Stanley...lol B

    2017 XR650L burning high beams

    then at the very least the OE bulb is shagged.. and my bet still goes to the LED bulb being cheap junk,,,lol Get a good led bulb,,like one from CYCLOPS or get a motorcyle halogen bulb.. Stanley makes the OE bulbs on these bikes and they stand up good,, PIAA also makes a motorcycle/powersports bulb that will take the vibrations too.. B

    2017 XR650L burning high beams

    That`s not a problem,,it only means it draws less power.. I have a CYCLOPS LED headlight bulb that draws way less than the OE bulb but it is far brighter..leds consume less power.. it`s not like the headlight curcuit is throwing 60 watts at the led and burnt it out,,,if the light only needs 30 watts,,that`s all that flows to it.. Is the OE bulb high beam element actual burnt???? take good look at it,,,you`ll see one filament missing and the low beam still intact. The other way of checking this issue is jumper the bulb directly to your battery,,,low beam then high beam,,do they both light???? B

    2017 XR650L burning high beams

    Could be......check for voltage like Joe said,,,,if voltage is there on high and low beam,,then it could be just bad bulbs... ground should be good if low beam always works... it would scare you how many times in our shop that a car comes in with both headlights out and the tech over thinks it,,,going straight for fuses and wiring,,to find out both bulbs were burnt out,,,wasting alot of time finding that out.. If you had bought another halogen bulb and just the high wasn`t working it`d be checking furthewr,,but a cheap LED will crap out in minutes..lol should be interesting to see what comes of this.. B

    then it`s likely just a cheap arsed LED bulb failure,,lol you get what you pay for,,mostly,sometimes..lol B

    2017 XR650L burning high beams

    start the bike and check voltage at the battery......if it`s between let`s say 13.8 volts and 14.5 ...then your cheap arsed led was the issue... if you are getting high volts,,over 15.0 then you have a regulator problem.. If you buy a halogen bulb get one MADE for a motorcycle,,the filament is better supported for the vibration..auto bulbs will not usually last long.. B

    My first XR build, I need some direction

    it would be retardly expensive to buy just a frame and start building a bike,the small parts needed would add up to 100x what buying a whole bike would cost you... rethink this,,at least buy a beater bike and then start the build...... B

    Shut off engine: cam chain keeps spinning???

    Unless the one-way variable cam timing sprag crap the bed.it would ratchet for a bit when shut down .does it spark knock under load... B

    Let’s see those XR650R Supermoto Bikes!

    i don`t see it as disgracefull.. to each their own,,at least the bike is being used.. i wonder how many people bought the XR650R to feel like "the king of BAJA".. and never ran them.. LOL THAT`S what i hate,,rich posers that buy a bike and put it in their garage,never use it,,never intented to really..just bought it to look "the part".. You see XR650L`s and R`s pop up for sale once in awhile when the rich posers get low on money and are forced to sell their chit without so much as a scratch on them..... dirt bikes look really cool on display when trying to impress your friends i guess.. Kinda like the chromed up Hardley`s ..that only get take out to go for coffee or drive down main street ...years old and only 2000 miles on it..lol At least they are being used bud..and probably a blast to ride.. B
