    Very clean rear wheel from my 85 XR350. You won't find a nicer wheel from a bike this old. $100 + shipping

    2018 Yamaha 250 XT

    If you need the electric start then do it and don't look back for $1500. Otherwise it's probably not much different (or better) than your 250L. Don't know what your diagnosis is but I thought I was a candidate for knee replacement and damned if some simple PT didn' t make a huge difference for me.
  7. Pretty sure the bike came with a kicker. My 2001 E has both. A manual decompression lever is usually only used after a crash to purge the gas that almost certainly flooded it when the bike tipped.

    Great bike, had one for more than 10 years. But godawful ugly. God bless you colorblind mf'ers.

    XR 650L

    They are tall, heavy and slow. But strong enough and durable as an anvil. Suspension sucks, money well spent improving there. And if you go to mild10.5:1 compression and opened up breathing they will surprise you.

    No, it's a well known fact and all of my 4 strokes in my over 40 yrs or riding (over 20 bikes) bore that out.

    Can you plate a dirtbike in Indiana any more?

    I'd presume the $$ for sure. So did you bs in any way or you can say "I can't plate this in Indiana, can I pay you guys for that"? In effect, I'd try to be discreet. Can you then transfer that title to your state? It'll cost me a lot more at least $1K to sell the ttr and replace it with a plated crf or equivalent and I already have the parts to dual sport it, so I greatly appreciate the info!

    How did you hear about that? That's crazy. So you can get a SD title and plate without living there? Why would they do that?

    Yeh, I downloaded the change of body form to do just that. That's when I discovered the new sentence "this form can't be used to change an OR title to a street title" (in effect) The states are using the fact that the carburetors on these bikes were never ok'd by the EPA to deny the street use. EDIT: hmmm, since all the bike makers share a relatively small number of carburetor models, isn't it likely that the kehin XX or whatever used on your dirt bike was also used on a street bike of that time? Seems like that could be a factor if you could prove that.
