    XR650R D/S question

    To me it sounds like a bad ground somewhere...Make sure all grounds are working.... Thats my thought on it...

    Scotts Stabilizer

    Aah Yes, I have the sub mount, I love the way it raised my bars, and after the years of riding it was a worthwhile addition to the bike...

    650r stage 1 hotcam

    Hey Highmark....From the sounds of it they pretty much bolt right in, But me being a machinest you want to make sure you check the springs for coil bind,seat press...ect. valve retainer to seal/guide top...Carefully read the inst. If I was doing the job I would be installing new cam followers and probly a good timing set and rail's depending upon wear, And it's always a good idea to dial the cam in I must say though I have a stock engine fmf Q and a ported edelbrock, And that carb alone woke my pig up..I can't imagine what it would be like with another cam...Crazy good ... I would think to if your putting a bigger cam in it, it would be a good idea to put better header tubes on it...jst my 2 cts

    need to ride

    WOW..It's been almost a year since I was here on TT..It's been about 2 year's since I've actually rode my BRP...except to drag up the street and back once in awile...I'm thinking if it don't sell, I'll try and make it street legal. But before I do that I'll try and take it out on the trail's again...But that will probly srew me up and piss of my woman ..Oh well She know's I miss riding...It just suck's having health issue's that slow me down even as stubborn as I am. .... But some day's are a bitch and I can't fight it enuf... Well it feel's good cruisin around TT...I will be back around now that I'm home again...

    Xr600 Won't Start!!! Not Carb. Related...

    If You have compression, spark, fuel, with air it should run....sounds like cam timing, valve adjustment, or ???....
