  1. I am trying to get my 86 XR600, which I have converted to Supermoto, back on the road. The transmission is bad and I would like to put on a new bottom end so I don't have to split the cases and buy the parts. I thought I had a source for the bottom end but that didn't work out and I am not able to find another. Anybody have one or know if there is another motor that would bolt into the XR frame? It is thawing out in Montana and I need to get this off the bench and on the road! Thanks for the help.
  2. :banghead:I am looking for the bottom of an 85/86 XR 600 motor. I am trying to avoid splitting the cases and replacing parts so want the bottom case or a motor with a bad cylinder or head. Anybody got one?
  3. I have a 05'CRF450X, put on a Q4, opened the air box, JD kit with 170 main and red needle on the 2nd clip....problem now is that I have lost all the low end power, mid and upper hit is much better. 3200 to 5000 elevation, 50 to 80 degrees. Should I change the needle or do I need to go with a new leak jet?
  4. I have been trying for many minutes to find pictures of the process to uncork the baffle in my CRF450, can't find it, any help?
  5. I haven't been able to get up in the hills yet, have been taking it apart and checking things out, changing the oils, etc. I will get the jet kit soon because I can tell just by the trips up and down the alley that it is too lean, motor gets hot real fast. Question: when cold, giving it a lot of gas, I hear a loud knocking from the motor, goes away when warm, sounds like a loose spark plug but is not. Could the compression release be loose...? Sounds like the choice is leaning toward the MRD exhaust, better than the Q4 FMF?
  6. Finally found a CRF450X!!! Now I need to know some opinions on the best mods to start with. So far it is all stock, I will get some bark busters and a fender bag but want to re-jet and get an after market exhaust. I will look through the post as time allows but some quick input would be nice. It is 05'. Thanks.
  7. I have completed the major work on converting my 86' XR600 over to SM.(thanks for all the help) I replaced the stator with a Moose Racing high output model and the instructions suck! The existing hook-up has only two wires but the Moose has six and the instructions only explain about the two and the extra white wire. I am real anxious to get the thing running but also anxious about the extra wiring...any help?
  8. I searched a lot for wheels for my XR600, finally ordered from Jeff at Procycle in Oregon. EXCEL wheels w/ spokes for $529.00. A 3.25 inch and a 4.25 inch. Great service too. www.procycle.us.com
  9. What help can you all give me when converting my bike to supermoto? I assume I can keep the rear rim, where to get the best deal on the front?
  10. I have been a Honda-Head for the last 35 years, currently own a 96 xr250, a 03' 919 and 86'xr600 which I plan on converting to a super-moto bike this winter. Question: I have been looking for an xr400 and am wondering if I should also look at the wr426-liquid cooling would be great. Also what year would be the best with limited funds? Thanks for the help.
