  1. Hey, first off I'm new to motorbikes so I may be using the wrong terminology here and there. I haven't run my bike for a few months and now it's not starting. I'm in neutral, tried the choke at different levels, full gas tank. I may have flooded the carbs, but I wanted to check the spark plug first because I have no clue about carbs. I've attached a photo of the spark plug, could this be the reason it's not starting? When removing the cap have I pulled too hard and snapped the wire (see photo), if I've snapped this piece what's it called and what am I replacing? Really appreciate the help, Cheers,
  2. Hello! I need some help with diagnosing my motorcycle. I have a 2000 XR650L. The previous owner told me that at one point the bike was not given oil changes and the piston was damaged. The piston was bored out making it a "660". From what I understand no problems from there on. However, recently I was cruising at 65 on the highway when my chain suddenly broke. The whip from the chain broke open the air box, ripped off the slider and chain guards, and tore up the back sprocket. So, I installed a new airbox, air filter, new front sprocket, rear sprocket and a new chain. I thought I was back in business and was testing the bike out. Everything was running fine for about ten miles going below 55. When i tried to bring the bike up to higher speeds it totally lost compression at 65 or it just completely bogged down. I pulled over to inspect the bike and everything seemed fine, the bike never shut off. Afterward when I took off it would begin to bog down again at 35mph, especially when i would throttle it quickly. I have tried the bike one other time since then and would notice it skipping or bogging down even at 25, again especially when i try to throttle it quickly, This is my first motorcycle so I am on a steep learning curve and do not have much knowledge to come up with a diagnosis and solutions. If anyone has any ideas and suggestions it would be very much appreciated!! I can wait to get this baby dialed in again! Thank you
  3. Hi, anyone got any tire recommendations for the original 21” and 18” wheels on the XR600/650? I’m personally looking for some street tires, fitting the original wheels. Also, who knows the maximum tire sizes on the OE wheels, both maximum for the wheel and for the swing arm. thanks, Jakob
  4. Hello! Anyone know of the bronze looking paint on xr650r’s and xr400 stator covers? (most XR’s I guess), I’m looking to repaint mine and would like to know the color. Thanks!
  5. so a group of hooligan children ran through my town causing damage to peoples property and unfortunately my bike was a part of the destruction, i started my bike the other morning to findd the motor ticking and checked the oil to find that 1.5 quarts out of 2 has been drained from the bike, so my question is does the frame hold 1.5 quarts because if it does then they drained the oil from the frame bolt which is completely exposed and easy to open. luckily i caught it immediately and did an oil change and the tick went away ( for now). no metal shavings in the .5 quart of iol i drained but, how screwed is my motor? and does the frame hold 1.5 quarts? im trying to figure out what happened because it doesnt burn and it doesnt leak oil so my only other thought is these &%$#@! kids.
  6. Selling my CB750 brat build for a dual sport and want to go the scrambler route. Decided on the xr650 and looking at one with a 'new top end' but unsure what it's worth (as well as if it's a riskier purchase than one with 'no known issues.' Attached is a picture of the bike and the invoice from the shop that the current owner passed along. Should I pass based on the repair (or that fact the the owner over-heated it)? If it's still a go, how much should I offer? Is the oil cooler a must now? Thanks in advance from a newbie!
  7. Hello all, I was just wondering as I've seen a few for sale, if a 600 or 650 rear shock would fit my 250 all from same year model but not to sure if it would fit. Thanks in advance.
  8. Ok guys, I have an XR650R with a leaky petcock. Unfortunately it appears to be leaking from between the petcock and tank, as well as from behind the on/off switch. Below is my order from partzilla. Also this website gives you a good look at installing 2 of the 3 orings. http://www.xr650r.co.uk/service/petcock/petcock.shtml
  9. New to this site. At near retirement age, my wife annd I have given up street bikes and gone back to the woods to ride. I bought her some Fox " body armor" I call it and she loves it. Fits well and gives her more confidence. Here is the problem. I am 6' 2" tall and weigh 275. Does anyone make protective gear for big men? Am not a motocrosser but do still like to flog the big red pig thru some single track..
  10. Weeks back i blew the motor on my 650l. Decided to do a few upgrades while the motor was out So far... Installing some new plastics, plan on doing USD forks, and street rims.

HEAD: -ported head -new OEM valves -springs mad by webcam -Stage 2 Webcam -Hardened cam lobes and hardened rocker arms BOTTOM: -Je 10:5:1 piston -Slightly over sized to a 101mm CARBURETOR: -MIKUNI TM40 Heres the bike as it sits right now
