    BRP Jetting & Idle Problems

    I may have found what you are talking about. Is it the stock intake boot? If so, I'll have to check and see.

    BRP Jetting & Idle Problems

    Thats a good question and I'm not sure. Where would the restrictor be located at?

    BRP Jetting & Idle Problems

    I have searched and searched for the answer to my question but, I have failed. LOL I have a 2001 XR650R that has been uncorked with a FMF pipe on it. I replaced the jets with a 175 Main and 68s Pilot. I noticed that it was a big jump on the main jet from a 125 to a 175 when I was rejetting. The bike wont handle the 175 jet, it falls on it's face when throttling up past half way. I have checked the valves and made the proper adjustments and the carb was clean when I pulled it down. I put the 125 main back in and it seems to run fine. My question is, why wont my bike handle the 175 Main Jet? I am about 1000 feet above sea level where I live. The next problem I'm having is a High/Low Idle problem. It was doing this even before I rejetted it. It will idle high when I come to a stop and I can crack the throttle a couple of times and it will idle normal. I have adjusted on the air screw and I doesn't help. It is at 1 1/2 turns out now. Can you help me out Eddie??? Thank you very much for the help. Tony (MRM)

    Running with the choke on

    I wouldn't run it like that very long. You need to pull the carb and clean it (clean and blow out the jets). I have had many like that and a good carb cleaning fixed them right up.

    BRP Mod Questions???

    Hey guys, I just picked up a new to me XR650R and I need a little help. I have owned a XR650L in the past and loved it but always wanted the R. I love this bike but, there are a few question I have and figured that some of you guys could point me in the right direction. I'm looking to install a Cooling Fan and have no idea where to pick one up or what type to get. I picked up an XRs Only Dipstick Temp guage and it runs around 200 to 220 degrees in the woods. I'm not sure if it is running too high of an engine temp but, it feel pretty hot. I sure the cooling fan would help. The next question I have is, I need some DC voltage to run my GPS unit and keep it charged up. What do I need without breaking the bank. Thanks Tony

    is the crf 230 good?

    Hey T-Cat, The 230 is probably one of the best all around trail bikes that I have ever ridden. Plenty of power but, not too much. You just need to do a few cheap mods to it and you will be ready to go. The wife and I both have one and love them. Tony

    NEW XR650L Question

    You don't need a Tool Kit man, it's a Honda.

    First hand opinions needed.

    My wife has owned two DR650SE bikes in the past. One was a 1996 and the other was a 2001. I didn't care much for the myself. She liked them because of the seat height. They both started leaking Oil after about 10,000 miles. I'll just stick with my old XR650L. I don't know much about the KLR but they are a good looking bike.

    Xr650l 14/45

    I run a 15/45 on my L and it has great highway speed. I have run the 14/45 it's great for off road but I ride mostly highway. It's cheaper and easier to change the front sprocket than the rear. JMO
