It would be a no brainer to to swap gears if you have it apart. A low as hell 1st and REALY tall 5th would be something I'd use every time I go dual sporting.

BD hasn't sold the starter for years

Not sure what you are looking at. Send a link but BD stopped selling the starter when they ran out of the first run of them. The last starter parts went several years ago. I think I bought the last two starter rings and the last shifter. Problem is I rarely use the starter and it is worth a ton for some reason. I regret installing it but when I bought it used they were cheap on fleabay. I think I got mine for $300. But it adds weight and width and complexity.

Can anyone share their wiring diagram?

My XRR is currently wired for a headlight, tail light, brake light and turn signals. It has a re-wound stator and a mini-battery. Plus, the current harness is a rat's nest of PO's additions and subtractions. Everytime I have to work on something I have to diagnose why something electrical isn't working because something jiggled loose. I would eventually like to add brighter and/or additional headlights and some 12V accessories, as well as a real battery (probably a small Ballistic). I'll probably also add a Trail Tech, but that's its own deal. What are you guys running for wiring harnesses? Are there any good aftermarket harnesses? Also, if there's some issue where I can't run all of the accessories at once (stator/battery limitations), that's totally fine.

Lastly (semi-unrelated), I used to be able to turn my lights on when the bike wasn't running (on battery power) and now I can't. In between "now" and "then" I rebuilt my whole engine and transmission so my bike wasn't running for a few weeks. At first I assumed the battery had gone weak from sitting, then I started thinking I put it back together wrong. Everything works as it should when it's running, but I get nothing when it's off. I figure if I'm going to gut and re-wire the whole thing this doesn't really matter.

If anyone has a remote idle adjustment screw for an edelbrock and they want to sell it it would be much appreciated, or if anyone can point me in the right direction to get one that would be great also.

Rod Removal

I want to change the bigend bearing but cannot find any info via google or here regarding removal of the rod from the crank. I have the parts manual and it only has information/pictures regarding checking clearances, but nothing regarding rod removal. Anyone have any pic's how to's that would help. Thankyou

The rod must be pressed apart. The big end pin must be pressed out which "breaks" the crank into 3 peices(right peice, left peice and pin) This is not a do it at home project unless you have all the right tools. Getting the crank apart is no biggie, BUT it must be trued after putting it back together. Not a easy job to say the least

I've never seen an aftermarket harness that I'd want to use. I made my own instead and am really happy with it. You can find wiring diagrams in the XRR electrical thread.

I've just basically finished the electrical work on my 05. I used a Tusk lighting kit from Rocky Mtn Cycle. The harness alone is just $29 if you just need that. The Tusk kit is a battery operated only system which I modified to work with a Ricky Stator dual output stator and reg/rec. I went with an ac/dc system and kept the stock harness mostly in tact. I've also added a key switch, KTM fan (dc) and grip heaters (ac) and will add a gps connection as well.

I bought OEM style connectors from http://vintageconnections.com/ which really helps making a quaility job.

If you do a Google search for XR650R wiring diagram you'll get lots of choices. I more or less copied a wiring diagram for a 1984 XL250 for my project.

Hope that helps.

Brian

I used a wire harness (warness) from Vancouver Supermoto and it worked excellent. The owner of VSM loves his xr650r's and has one that's specific and well thought out for the xr. It is literally plug and play and has never let me down, it's not cheap but it is good quality. I hate doing electrical work however this install is easy with the instructions specific to the xr..link below

Call Edelbrock

If no luck here call them. They have alot of parts on pallets last I saw and when that is gone most of the stuff won't be reproduced is my understanding. I think they closed that company down that sold the Quicksilver carbs. Something like that.

Good luck.

Thanks to ManRacks

Finally had a chance to install the ManRack Rear Rack and Fender Support today.

They sent it immediately - even in silver (my choice to look more like something OEM). Even came with fasteners and required spacers.


Installation would've been 5 minutes except since I had this Acerbis license plate holder, I had to carve it away a bit to make room for the hoop of the fender support.


Had to drill a couple holes to bolt the fender to it. The good thing is, the hoop and rack bolt together and sort of "triangulate" making for a stronger set-up - for the fender and the rack. It's all good.


Finished product. I like this rack because it's fairly understated. It's small enough to look stock, but gives me at least the chance to strap something on if I want. I've got a more serious ManRack on my XRL.
