  1. Thanks! Will pass this on.
  2. A friend asked me to inquire what tools are required to split the cases on a KLR650. His transmission is stuck in 2nd gear and will not shift up nor down. He removed the side cases and can see through a portal something sticking in the shifting mechanism but is unable to reach it and not sure what it is. This is the reason for splitting the cases to gain access and determine what all is wrong. I have a few flywheel pullers for different Honda dirt bikes, but not sure if any would fit the KLR. Also, any advice about where to get the tools would be helpful. Thanks!
  3. I've got a similar problem where when running down the road at any throttle/speed, about every 30 seconds - 1 minute, it misses one hit; almost as if I tapped the kill switch (and, no, it's not the kill switch). Still troubleshooting mine.
  4. You adjust the low end with the pilot jet; no option there but to try different sizes to find which one gives you the best performance. You will probably need to adjust the air screw also. Mid - top end is the main jet and needle position. Again, due to the modifications to your bike, it will require making a change and test it.
  5. Sounds like your snakebit with this one, but electrical problems can be a pain. Like Br0ck said, what year model CR500 are you working on?
  6. He said he had tried coil, spark plug wire, and stator.
  7. That sounds like a cold solder joint on one of the components in the cdi. Very similar to the issues they had on the XR650L.
  8. You can still get a new OEM unit from Honda depending on the year model. CDI for a 2001 is part number 30410-ML3-791 and would probably fit 93-01. $205 US from Western Honda Powersports in Scottsdale, AZ. You could possibly get a similar price for one from a UK online dealer. Are you sure your CDI is bad? Bad grounding issues can cause no spark - had this problem with my '87 once.
  9. Definitely wa t to keep it clean. I've adapted a CR500 air boot to a CRF450 air box, maybe adapt a CRF air boot to the XR400 air box?
  10. Was going to see how the 400 cables fit, but do have a quarter turn throttle and the cables off of the CRF250. Figure one or the other will work. Just hoping the air boot to the filter will fit the back of the FCR. Thanks for the jetting info. Will probably be later in the week before I get the chance to work on it.
  11. I've got a stock 2001 XR400 and was wanting to install a spare FCR carb I have. I believe it's a 37 or 38 mm (whatever came stock on the early CRF250R before they went to 40mm). I'm at sea level and was wondering what pilot and main jet sizes to start with? I know I'll have to fine tune it but just was curious if anyone could suggest a starting point so the bike would at least start. Also, it has a FMF silencer and a K&N filter. Stock header tubes.
  12. If you don't have one, you can get a flywheel puller fairly cheap from the TT store or most any place like Cycle Gear and pull off the flywheel. There's a seal behind there that's easily replaceable. When you put the new one in, put a little grease on it and it should slide right in place. Even with the one in there leaking a little, the bike will usually run fine. Being 16 years old, it probably needs replacing.
  13. There are a couple of places in the Austin area - Emma Long Park in Austin https://www.austintexas.gov/sites/default/files/files/Parks/GIS/EmmaLongKioskMap_Motorcycle.pdf and Hidden Falls northwest of town https://www.google.com/maps/place/Hidden+Falls+Adventure+Park/@30.5898705,-98.1650304,15z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0xabfc143fa67ee501!8m2!3d30.5898705!4d-98.1650304

    No problem. Don't know if I'll make it out to the workday; did a header over the bars on a ride this last weekend and having some lower back issues as a result. Landed in mud and didn't even get a bruise out of it. But, woke up Tuesday morning locked up obviously with a pulled muscle.

    Yeah, that bike looks familiar. Glad y'all got the deal worked out.
