  1. I told you Aaron:p Hold your line, don't sell it for less than you think it's worth.
  2. Sand is great, Silt, ala Baja style, is what scares me
  3. I own a 1976 FJ40 Toyota Landcruiser and a 2003 4x4 Tundra. Never been disapointed with either. The Landcruiser will go just about anywhere and take a lot of abuse. The Tundra is my daily driver and bike hauler, also a very well made truck.
  4. No question about it, one of the best mod's you can do to your XR. Never had any problems with performance or support. Bob Bell know's his stuff.
  5. if its not a jeep what is it? FJ40?
  6. Heres some first hand advice - if you see a helicopter wizzing over your head, watch out, something big and fast is coming up on your ass.
  7. Glad to see that you have dived into it as you said you would. Don't forget to check the timing chain also. It may be out of tolerance. Looking forward to hearing you progress and thanks for helping me clear out some space in my garage.
  8. From todays local paper: Riverside County supervisors voted 4-1 Tuesday to impose new restrictions on the use of off-road vehicles on private property. The new rules will allow off-roading on private property in the unincorporated areas only between noon and 5 p.m. Property owners who wish to use their land for off-roading will be required to obtain a county conditional use permit and only certain properties qualify for such a permit. The proposal allows just one off-road vehicle or dirt bike per 10-acre parcel. Supervisors said the rules will be complaint-driven, so off-roaders who keep the noise down are not likely to attract the attention of enforcement officials. Owners of 5-acre properties in zones where riding is allowed will be required to obtain notarized signatures of permission from all contiguous neighbors before riding on their property. The new rules exempt vehicles used for eco-tourism, agricultural or property maintenance but require approved spark arresters on all off-road vehicles. The supervisors' decision culminated 18 months of debate between county leaders and residents over how to strike a balance between the rights of those who want to ride on their land and neighbors who want peace and quiet.
  9. Need to ask a question reqarding compression. Is it possible for a bike to run with compression as low as 50lbs? A co-worker claims that his 97 XR 600R currently is running only about 50lbs. of compression and still runs strong. Any of you gearheads ou there think this is possible? I think he is not testing his cylinder correctly or is just full o' Crap.
  10. Good thread! I have been having the same dillema. I currently have a 1998 XR600R with all the aftermarket crap money can buy. I am keeping it because it is bulletproof and dependable, but I want to get another bike for trail riding and have been drifting between the XR650R and CRF450X. Too many decisions, not enough cash.
  11. Your friend is wrong, and stupid.
  12. Been there and done that on getting stuck in water. Don't overlook your wheel and swing arm linkage bearings. Good bet they are wasted.
  13. It looks like the dual sport kit puts the battery behind the front plate and may be a better option.
  14. The JoeRacer kit lots like the most sano kit out. I am going to look into that one. Thanks to all for the info.
  15. You might think differently twenty years from now. I do a lot of riding in Baja and having that button would be nice. A few of my friends went to other brands for that reason and found out that they missed the reliability of the trusty XR. And if the rumours about the TRX quad line getting the 650 motor are correct, it would make sense that the engineering may include e-start.
