12V regulator

Anyone ever put a 12v regulator on their XR350R? Trying to dual sport one I picked up last week. I think I need to connect the regulator to the blue wire coming off the stator and ground the other side. Am I on the right track?

I converted a xr350r to use a 12 AC regulator. yes, it goes between the lighting coil output and ground. sorry, I don't know the wire color off the top of my head, but there is a CDI output (black/red) and the other is the lighting coil. it's a shunt regulator, so the non-ground and the ground sides go to the lights. if you need a battery, then you will need a rectifier/regulator, which will be wired differently. one side will go to the lighting coil output and ground, and the other will be battery plus and minus. a thermal blinker will work with AC, I don't think the electronic kind will work with anything but DC. the horn will sound different on AC, than DC. if you plan to use LED lights you will likely want DC.

Here is my 1985 XR350R.



It is completely bone stock except for the rox risers, protaper YZ high bars and HDB hand guards.

I just picked up an 83 XR350 in decent shape and have the carbs off taking a pine sol bath, just cleaned out the tank and trying to rid the intake manifold/cylinder of some corrosion and then I have to pull off a kill switch from one of my other XR's so I can see if this thing is gonna fire or not.
I have a question if you don't mind, it seems like this bike doesnt have much compression I can push the kickstarter down with my hand its easier than my XR200. It is no where close to the compression my XL600R had is this normal?

Use a compression gauge 160 to 180 IIRC, I can barely push it by hand.... unless I remove the spark plug.

Finally rejetted mine last week, it is running much colder, droppped from 248 to 204 in 65 degrees weather... The usual post suggest 48 slow jet and 135 main, and 110 on the secondary carb. I used 50 slow jet, and [correction I wrote initially 128, but it is 132] main leaving the 112 on the secondary carb. Will try to use a 48 on the slow jet latter for tease.

Start first kick in the morning and first kick anytime when hot... for riding in the 4 to 6000' range.



Slow jet or pilot jet ref : KEIHIN SLOW JET N424-74C
and the main jet 99101-357-
Got them from PJMotorsports.com

I picked up a 1985 XR350R a week or two ago, I've been tinkering with it off and on as time allows.

So far I have sealed up a leaky carb intake and install a new air filter, checked the oil (it was low), and soaked the chain in diesel to get it cleaned up.
There is still a lot to do, but its a start.

It seems to run fine, but it has a "tick" like the valves need adjusted.
So I removed the covers on the inspection holes on the left side and to my surprise....oil started running out of the large inspection hole.

Unless there is something different about this bike that I'm not aware of there shouldn't be any oil in there.
Its a little confusing, the flywheel/stator must have been submerged in a oil bath, if that's the case....how could this bike run like that? Am I missing something?

My first thought is a bad crank seal....

Busted......... I spend too much time wrenching on the 2-smokes.

Thanks for the info... I thought I was in big trouble.
Good to hear I was just stupid.
