    Top end disassembly XR650R

    precisely....so is not all bullcrap....that is how to diassemble the top end. for those who are not as mechanically experienced as you and who are not monkeys, i thought it might be useful for them to see it being done....and yes, watch the video

    My New Xr650R

    Very nice, how does she run. what do you think of that pipe, i have heard only good things. What carb is she running, original ?
  6. Nice article on the XR650r for those with a bit of nostalgia... http://www.motorcycle-usa.com/2006/03/article/2006-precision-concepts-xr650r/
  7. What is it that precision concepts does to the forks, and how different is that to racetech valving and fitting correct weight springs and playing with oil viscosities and shims for eg.

    Anyone Try these pivoting levers?

    Hey Notorious: Quick question on the ASV rotating clamp. Are there supposed to be two plastic inserts or just the one like i have on mine. I cant remember how they came out of the box, been a few years now

    Anyone Try these pivoting levers?

    these are mine...nice levers..... i use the Hot start lever as a decompression lever as i am running Hotcam without auto decompression, works well

    i would be careful though, cheap Chinese materials most probably, for that price

    60 sounds about right , 190 bit fast for me....though i did do 189 (true story) down the M1 in UK on my TTS tuned GSXR1100 back in the day. Blew away a Porsche 911. pulled into a coffee shop and few minutes later guy comes up to me and asks if i was the rider ...said yep wasnt a big deal...he said yep, but i was listening to mozart...hahahah...all good fun back in the day

    mine is not actually desert riding per se....tho i do hit the beach occasionally, is mainly high speed , hard packed laterite (red fire road) which can get quite gnarly with very hard edge large potholes which hit hard

    i believe Johnny Campbell used one on his XR650r , now it is possible he was just paid to use it and switched it off when racing....who knows. But i do see and read about alot of race teams using them....and most people on the óther´forums swear by them , and some are pretty experienced racers. like i say, i have never had the opportunity to try one. i do understand setting up the suspension is more important though. i will be using racetech valves in the forks and be experimenting with those (cant afford to send my suspension to precision concepts). as for the rear shock, will have to leave that standard for the moment, is a bit more complicated than the front...will get to that later have looked at Borynack suspension info and will be trying some of his setups out as well..looks like the desert set up may suit my riding conditions here

    yes, but has been parked up for a few years now, just getting it back together after a strip down. have never used a stabilizer before, thought might help on these laterite roads. can get very squirrely, like riding on marbles sometimes
