  4. Hi can anyone help have a 98 model wr400f was running fine till on way back from ride the other day went up through gears as normal was fine pulling like a train 1st 2nd 3rd 4th then pulled 5th and it was like bike was missing and popping and holding back. Felt problem was electrical under load as was fine in everyother gear changed spark plug and found a dodgey connection to coil which have repaired but still the same has anyone else had a problem like this can anyone help. my mate said it could be a gear problem but more like gear pushing on crank and moving the mag enough to drop spark in and out as there is no crunching from box which would say a broken gear:confused: any help wuold be great thanks

    honda xr600 wheels

    I have a 1985 xr600r with a 17inch rear wheel and drum brake can i change it to an 18inch to open up more tyre choice. The main things been can i do it on the standered swingarm ( possible fitting disc brake ) or would it be easier to change arm. Another option been lacing an 18inch rim to standered hub obviousley only if the 18inch would clear standered swingarm any help would be great thanks:thumbsup:

    dr350 gearing (sprockets)

    can anyone tell me how much increasing the rear sprocket to keep the front end light in the mud the top end speed will be capped. Will be fitting 13 or 14 tooth front and 52 or 53 tooth rear. It is only used of road never on road but i dont want to lose out to my mates on the open stretches. Any advise would be appriciated.

    im down in surrey which would have been good to pop in on your london trip. have just read what klas said and your post about the chain snapping im in the same opinion the the cam chain may have jumped and as far as i know rewiring the cdi and coil the wire isnt of a surtain resistance good luck

    the air box mod shouldnt effect jetting mine was modified when i bought of a mate he did mod him self after reading it on the net and left the jeting standard and mine has no problems in that respect i still think you have electrics shorting out when its warmed up which is what the wire to my coil did good luck
