  1. This is my son's birthday present. He'll be 7 on the 22nd. 2003 TTR90. I did a ton of work to make is sano. Here's the result This is it all finished with new grips.
  2. Yesterday I wired in a 12v power outlet and used the wires that feed my radiator fan to power it. They come off the little battery I have. When I started the bike the outlet was working but then it stopped. Then I realized the headlight wasn't on. Then after trying all the lights realized that no turn signals worked either. I didn't have a meter with me so testing for voltage was out. I have it today and have not been able to test yet. But does this sound like the rectifier is toast? The bike starts and the other power circuits work - hand warmers and now the 12v outlet since I moved to that circuit after it stopped working. I bypassed the little battery and used a good one to test the lighting circuit. When I turn the lights on the VAPOR computer lights up. Any help would be great. Thanks.
  3. Update I installed the 60 pilot today and took it for a spin to the store. Like I had hoped, it cleared up the bog and the PIG idles. Oh, it also RIPS now. No lag on the bottom end now. Bonus: Since I changed the float bowl screws to allenheads, I can remove the float bowl and change the jets without removing the 6.3 gal tank or loosening the clamps holding the carb in place. Very cool.
  4. I ride all the time. It doesn't sit for long. I just wanted to get rid of the bog so I changed to a leaner pilot. Maybe I do have an air leak on the boot. I'll find out soon. Either way, something has to change.
  5. I didn't make it to a trail. I was doing a test ride down a 45mph road. When I turned around, the idle went up like before. I lowered the idle speed, road back home testing for a bog. I shifted to fifth going about 30mph just to see what would happen.Rolled on the throttle slow from no throttle to 3/4 throttle. No bog through the power range up to 60. When I slowed and turned onto my street, the idle rev was up and needed to be brought back down with the clutch. I'm going to see what 2.5 turns out does on the fuel screw. If it still idles high, I'll jump to a 60 pilot and test from there. And I'll report back with results. Not sure when that will be though. Hopefully ASAP.
  6. So after doing the mod the 65s pilot is bogging at 1/8 throttle. So I installed a 55 to hopefully fix the bog. I wanted to try a 58 or 60 first but the shop only had a 55 at the time. With the fuel screw at 2 turns out, IT WORKED! BUT, the hanging idle returned once the bike was warm. Would you say that changing to a slightly richer pilot, 58 or 60, might balance out the issue? Otherwise, I'm lost. I hate both issues. I do not want a bog. It need to run right. But it at least needs to idle. I'm not buying a POS KLR.
  7. I just wanted it to idle, period. It idles now with attitude. Before it would either die at 1200 rpm or rev to the moon. I'm stoked it just idles at 1500 and sounds mean.
  8. I'm wondering why you guys went to a 58 pilot when all mods say to use the 68s. I'm using the 65s but I'm at 3200' and its hot out. What elevation are you guys at? And why go to such a lean pilot? BTW. I did the mod and it worked! My bike now idles like it should and come back down to idle speed when coming to a stop. Thanks for the thread.
  9. They are barely visible. You can't see them in day light. In the dark they are really dim. My bike has a running light like a parking light position. In this position, the turn signals work great. Head lights on position, not great.
  10. Will the flasher relay just slow the flash down? I need it to be brighter. Its not too fast just doesn't light up enough when the headlight is on.
  11. Okay. My rear blinkers are not LED. So I would need an LED flasher relay and wire it in parallel off the handlebar switch. LED relay to feed the front, and the other to feed the rear? Since the relay only has two wires, does it feed the handlebar switch meaning my rear blinkers won't work correctly? How will it need to be wired?
  12. It has a flasher relay. Not sure if it's an LED specific one. Is there a difference? I'm kind of thinking the relay may be the issue. But please help.
  13. I have a plated XR650R with a BD DS kit. I bought the bike used recently and found the front LED flush mounted blinkers work in two ways. When the thumb selector switch is on the 'parking light position', the blinkers work correctly (fully illuminated). BUT, when the selector switch is moved to 'head light on position', the blinkers are barely visible. I'm guessing they are being over taken by the head light 'ON'. Has anyone ran into this? What can I do to get the blinkers to fully illuminate when the head light is ON? BTW. This senario is when the bike IS running. Rear blinkers work correctly (not LEDs).
  14. No one has used this collar? I put grease on it to band aid it but the blue is where the gap is. It can't be right.
  15. I'm looking for some info on this item. I recently bought a BRP and removed the front wheel to check the bearings. When I went to install it back on, the xrsonly collar that came with the bike has a gap between the seal and collar. The collar reduces down as it goes into the seal. The outer section is bigger than the seal opening. Maybe I'm missing something, but that bearing will be toast in no time. I didn't pay attention to it before removing it so I'm lost. I can't find a picture of it installed on the bike anywhere online. Help please.
