I'll add one more recomendation for the carb work. Verify that your disassembly screwdriver is "JIS" head, not just "Phillips" head. They do fit slightly differently. May not be a problem in AUS. Not sure what your local standard is.

I second completely removing the flapper plate.

Replace the carb phillips screw head with stainless cap/hex head stews and you'll be set for life. The stock "phillips" are way to soft and easily strip the heads.... IMHO

as i remove parts they go in order on the cloth in order as i remove them

Couldnt agree more.

1 Clean counter

2 Organized parts in dish/tray if need be-in order and even in groupings

3 Dont strip threads/heads! If ya cant get it any other way, stop!
Go drink coffee/beer/etc Find another way!

4 Tighten it back together evenly- if it has multiple bolts/screws-tighten them down evenly together- it takes a lil longer but things seal/seat better.

If youve taken something apart a 1000 times over the years,
and it still has the same screws/bolts- yer prolly a pretty good mechanic.

Swingarm maintenance

Finally got the motivation to grease the swingarm on my XRR today. My bike has around 1000 miles on it. Here's what the bolt looked like...



Luckily it came out easy. Lots of water, little grease in the bearings...



Couple hours later...



Back end is ready to go! Waiting for shims and seals to finish the forks.

Did it help with the fender wooble at all?? Im tired of replacing blinkers.It looks good in red.

If you are tired of the rear fender shaking, build a new license plate fender support like the one I made.

I just did mine yesterday. My bolt looked the same but bearing had to be replaced. I also made a the tools for torquing the bearings.

Sounds like someone's been reading their latest issue of MCN...

MCN?

No, I've just worked on enough Japanese bikes to have learned the difference.

I've also learned that JIS screws are made of a material similar in consistency to swiss cheese.

XRR Fender Wobble

Hi, the ManRacks has a small sheet metal support under the fender. It bolts to the end of the subframe, and comes up with a large tab that supports the rack. It helps stabilize the fender somewhat......I dont run turnsignals so cant say about the extra weight that signals may add. Overall I think the rack works real good!
