You know I'm not sure why he didn't grind it to drop in. He does his others. My guess is that the cam timing or lobe centers vary too much from the stock cam and he wasn't able to get the lobe centers on with the cam's stock cam shaft sprocket holes. In any case, my friend who is going to help me says any really truly high performance cam needs to be degreed as a few degrees make a BIG difference. At least the lobe centers are fixed relative to each other! How's your motor coming?

The PBI sprockets are manufactured in Oregon. Did you have any problems installing the PBI sprocket on your worn countershaft?

Mine went on with a slight tap for the first time. I then took it on and off a few times by hand easily.
Everyone should heed the warning or suffer later. Easy and fairly cheap. This should be one of the first things done/ looked at!
Again thanks spud for your investigations for better solutions.
My next venture. Will be the diodes for led blinkers.

Good birthday today! My wife got me some Tusk grip heaters, a Fog City helmet visor insert, and a gift certificate to my favorite local moto shop!

I need to pick up some Pillow grips for it and get these heaters on! What's the trick to installing the heater on the throttle side? And what's the best place to tap into power for a relay?

That thing would be fun to cut doughnuts with until you burned through all the rubber.

Given that I need a new front sprocket, with more lateral surface area to take up as much of the remaining spline as possible, I decided to order both the PBI/Moose and the Primary Drive sprockets, in the XR flavor. And, I ordered a new retainer as well. It will all come down to how deeply I can get the CSS onto the splines, with or without the spacers. Stay tuned.

PD
Hi PD, who did you order from? All i can find is a renthal in Canada, so will likely order online from the states (shipping is 40 to 60 bucks!) Any suggestions, all?

The real trick is not having the clutch side become a giant heat sink. On the throttle side you have to allow for play. I also cut the grip with a razor blade to route it so there would be a straighter shot. Make sure you have somebody chime in who knows what's best to put on the clutch side. Happy birthday. BRAAAAAPPP!!!

You can order the Primary Drive, XR650R C/S sprocket from Rocky Mountain ATV/MC.

http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p/...Front-Sprocket

However, I recommend the PBI/Moose Racing, XR650R C/S sprockets. You can order the PBI sprockets directly from PBI, in Oregon.

http://shop.pbisprockets.com/product...&categoryId=21

You can order the Moose Racing, XR650R sprockets from Motorcycle Superstore.

http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...50R-Parts.aspx

It appears to me PBI manufactures these sprockets for Moose Racing.

I can't even cut & paste fast enough before you beat me to the punch.

Thanks for the good work; we all rely on you. You are like a fireman working 24 hour shifts.

Have someone in the states throw it on their order when they get free shipping and then ship it to you via first class mail to Canada.

I needed to trim the throttle tube so I could fit my Pro Taper Pillow Top Grips.

Download the supplemental, installation instructions at the Rocky Mountain ATV website. These instructions explain how to reinforce the wires on the throttle tube so they won't fail.

http://rockymountainatvmc.com/docs/G...0Throttles.pdf

I installed a single layer of 1-inch shrink tubing on the left handgrip before I installed the grip heaters. The single layer of shrink tubing works well as insulation. However, I think two layers might work even better.

Does somebody know a good, fairly low profile, LED blinker? I ordered some cheap ones from ebay and they are CHEAP! The wires are about 32 gauge and they pull out of the body easily. I don't mind paying if they are bright and tough.

I'm sorry, PD. If I knew you were racing to answer the question, I would not have responded.
