  1. will the '00-'05 kit be the same for '06? Are the clutches unchanged? Anybody know.
  2. So only the dirt digger kit or also the basket from barnett?
  3. My buddy has a 2006 XR650R. Now with 2000km. We do all our riding in the desert. First clutch failure (slipping so bad we couldn't even move the bike) at 1000km. Dealer fixed it and now at 2000km it's slipping again. So after reading the previous post about clutches etc etc I think we are on the right track to replacing the clutch with an aftermarket kit. The idea is as follows: 1) Barnett dirt digger kit 2) Hinson clutch basket 3) XR's only springs I have some questions though. The Barnett dirt digger kit seems to be for XRR '00-'05. Will it be the same for '06? Are the XR's only springs really that much better than the Barnett springs? How much better are the Barnett springs compared to stock as we may not get the XR's only springs where we are? Finally are there any special tools required to replace the clutch components? We have measuring tools (micrometer and vernier), torque wrench, ring spanners and sockets, hammer, punch etc. Anything else? Any other tips or advice? Thanks
  4. E2 from WB. Very durable can from tough aluminium. 2006 WR450. Picture same as on ARin:thumbsup:
  5. I thought Acerbis stopped making this tank:confused: where did you still get one?
  6. All my riding is in the desert and the WR450 is great. I run stock tires and it hauls ass. Keep the speed up and you will be fine:applause:
  7. Yup, another handguard thread:bonk: I have narrowed my choice down to the Cycra probends and the Moose Racing Handgaurds. The Moose racing seem cheaper, is their quality related to the price? Anyone have experience with them or should I just spend the $ and get the Cycra's from the beginning?
  8. Sorry, I wasn't very clear in initial post. I meant the case saver that protects the case from the chain in the event of chain breakage. See link: http://shop.thumpertalk.com/catalogs/Parts_Unlimited_Offroad_2006/default.asp?p=772

  10. Does anybody use the Moose Racing case saver? Will it offer more protection than the stock one? http://shop.thumpertalk.com/product_p/pu_09500021.htm
  11. I always thought "slip-ons" were supposed to slip on without clamps, gasket or gasket kit/silicone?
  12. What year stock shrouds?
  13. Hey thumper605. Could you post some pics of that tank on your bike? I'm dying to see what it looks like.
  14. Yup, the fact is Yamaha is using steel framed 2006 WR's in the 2007 Dakar:worthy:
  15. That's pretty cool MountainMax. Can you remember the part no for the key ignition for the TTR? Do you have some more pics of the mount you made?
