Yes, it's running now and no, it wasn't error in my testing. It was a sporadic spark problem that would clear up and work fine...sometimes within seconds of not working and vise verse.

Got news for ya...that method didn't help one bit, was one of the very first things I tried(cleaning the switch and cycling the switch) and is now proven to not work all the time.

Otherwise, it's easy to troubleshoot and easy to bypass.
Yep, bypass.
No problem, then fix later.

I have to remove the switch to disassemble it. Therefore, I can work on the switch inside my home; there's no need to freeze. Also, I believe in preventive maintenance. Therefore, I think it's probably a good idea to give this switch a thorough cleaning every other year or so.

Does anyone have the link that was posted awhile back regarding the Easton handlebars that were on sale real cheap? I just spent damn near an hour(that I'll never get back ) looking for the link. I know it's a long shot but are they still on sale? I'd like to get another set of bars. Any other sales links for 1 1/8' handlebars would be much appreciated!

Man this thread moves fast!

Get them while you can. Bar selection is getting limited...

A big thanks goes to "3girlsdad" for the tip.

I don't know anything about this topic. However, you might want to join the conversation at Thumpertalk.

What do you think?




I want to see Thump N Red take him up into the Boise foothills.

[QUOTE=flyingwombat;20584344]Yes I have my spacer, gotta pick up some longer bolts for it. I used a throttle from a 96 XR600R, I think they are probably all the same, not sure though. I like it because it has a pulley on the pull cable for super smooth operation, and it's much easier to reassemble.

What a bitch the stock throttle assembly is to reassemble.

If you use it, the start/kill switch will not fit. I used a Highway Dirtbikes switch perch mount, which is a thing of beauty. I had to file a bit of material off the corner to clear that stupid banjo bolt brake switch, but no big deal. I used a normally closed momentary pushbutton for the kill button and a normally open momentary pushbutton for the starter, got them both from Digikey (HDB has the pushbuttons also but I don't think he has a normally closed one listed on his site). Luckily I have a long thumb for reaching those buttons. The perch switch mount can also be mounted the other way so the switches are closer to your hand, but you will probably need a longer brake lever in that configuration.

The easiest thing to do would be to have Motion Pro make some cables for the XRL throttle. For me, the custom cables were a good excuse to swap on the XR600 throttle which I have been looking to do for a while. I also eliminated a whole bunch of redundant wire, connectors, and splices up front.

Oh, I installed an OEM CRF450X front brake hose today- it's about 6 inches longer than the CRF450R hose and looks like it will work great. I added grip heaters too.

Here's what it looks like (without cables):


[COLOR="rgb(46, 139, 87)"]Thanks for the input. I think initially I'll make the stockers,work with some help from motion pro [/COLOR]

X2. I reassemble the throttle assembly as best I can. Next I remove both throttle cables at the carburetor. Then I re-attach both throttle cables at the carburetor, and the throttle operates properly. Is there an easier method? Thankfully, I only needed to fiddle with the throttle assembly when I installed my grip heaters.

Hmmm, that didn't make me feel any better. Thirty years clean driving and I pay $1300/yr for full coverage on an 07 Ram. Man, Canada really blows when it comes to insurance!!!

Just be glad you're not in Europe if $1300/yr is bugging you. I've only got 15 years clean driving, but they're quite happy to take upwards of $4k per year from me to insure my car and XRL! Then again, they way they drive here in Belgium I guess I shouldn't be too surprised.
