  1. I have a 2000 Honda XR650L with a JE 10.5 102mm piston and stage 1 Hot Cam, stock exhaust except the tip is removed. I am currently running 165/ 60 with the needle shimmed at .050". I still have some pinging in 5th gear. I tried a 170 main but that was too much, Does anyone have this combo? Most of the people with something similar have a pumper of some sort. At sea level

  3. I just checked the timing AGAIN, it is DEAD on. I must be running lean. I have stock exhaust. I shimmed the needle with a washer that was a little over .030", I am going to try the 165 jet since I have it. After a little tinkering the thing start RIGHT up, it perfect. Thanks for the reply.
  4. Bike Specs: 01 650L 10.5 compression 102mm JE piston, Stage 1 Hot cam, Daves carb mods with 160/58 After thinking about it for a while I think the only way it can go in is with the cam lobes facing downward with the Sprocket and engine at TDC. I finally started it up, bam right away ran great until I got it out in the open then it started pinging at full throttle, so I guess the timing must be advanced too far. Now it is hard to start. Must be the timing. How much tension should the T-chain tensioner be putting on the chain, I am thinking that it might have jumped time because there wasn't enough tension on the chain. Thanks, Derik Harris
  5. I have a 2000 XR650L, I am having a little problem putting my sprocket back on the cam. There are 2 bolt holes on the sprocket, I could flip this sprocket 180 degrees and it would still bolt in. Do the cam lobes have to be down and then bolt the sprocket to the cam with the tick marks facing up? Thanks, Derik Harris
  6. What jetting do you have for your carb?
  7. Will the Vapor work for the 650L? It only lists a 650R...
  8. I am in the same shoes as the creator of this thread. I was thinking about going up to the Rubicon this weekend with the xr650l, anybody in?
  9. Longest trip in one day was 500 miles. Mojave Desert, CA to Sacramento, CA on my 650L, it would have easily made it much longer.
  10. I really doubt that the rings are bad though, they were properly installed and everything was perfect. And the oil level is definately not too high. It looks like it is coming out of the carb.
  11. It appears to be leaking out of the carb. because the inside of the air filter is splattered with engine oil. There diffinately is not too much oil in the bike, it is just right.
  12. 2000 XR650L 13,000 miles 2,000 miles ago I dropped a valve seat and had to get another head, bore the cylinder(new Wiseco Piston), and resurface the head. The bike seems to run great however it leaks oil out of the carb, when I park it. Do you guys think that it is valves or what? I bought the head that is currently on the bike off of ebay, not knowing how many miles was on it.
  13. Sweet thanks for all of the good info. A couple of weeks ago I did tweak the handle bars when I crashed off-roading, could that be affecting this situation? The only problem is that it did this before; however, it might be doing it worst now. Thanks, Derik
  14. This generally only happens on rougher roads but sometimes it happens on smooth roads too. The handle bars start to oscillate from left to right when I am going faster than 65MPH. The other day I was on a fairly rough country road, going 80MPH and to keep the handle bars from going crazy I had to keep constant pressure on the grips, basically pushing the grips equally with both arms so that they wouldn't get out of hand. Do you guys have any ideas as to what the problem could be? Thanks, Derik
