PDF of XRL service manual

Would someone be so kind as to send " marlinjames" a copy of the service manual. I don't have it on my home computer.

thanks

What do you know i "found" one...

Im having some carb issues after my daves mod and am about to beat the
f-er with a hammer. fritz has been helping me but i havent had much luck. im about to take it to the honda shop. but thinking if i decide to do that route i should just put that money towards a pumper carb.
my question: is the procycle.us one better than the xr only carb? or is there another carb i should look at?
and will any exhaust give me an increase in power?

I won't be able to recommend, but others will want to know your typical elevation, any other mods to the motor or exhaust system?

Well, first ride with the new tires went well. I must say my street riding was rather spoiled with those Avon Distenzia's. It didn't help that it was windy as hell today also.

The IRC TR8's seem to grip well on the road and turn in on the corners very quickly. Caught me by surprise on the first corner because it leaned over so much faster than the Avons. They handle the gravel well, no dirt today.

They are a bit vibey around 55-60mph but that should get better once they are broke in a bit. I've got one rimlock on each wheel and the rear was close enough on balance to not need weight, and the front only needed 2oz.

Did you try adjusting the mixture screw as I suggested yesterday?

Compared to a pumper carb, the stocker is an exercise in simplicity. If you are having trouble getting the stocker to work, a Keihin FCR may make you crazy. Mikuni's are known to make grown men cry.

I can't wait to hear how those tires handle and how long they last. I have been watching those for a while.
Any head shake at speeds above 70 mph?

Only had it up to 70 for a short amount of time. No head shake that I could notice. At 55-60 it had a pulsing sort of vibration, smooth for a second then vibrating for a second, but it seemed to smooth out at 65+.

Hoping that the vibration at 55 will go away once they are broken in a bit more. I'll be running them at higher pressures on the street (26-28 psi) and then probably airing down to 20 or so when I hit the trails.

Did you balance them?

Had a shop balance them. They said that the rear was very close to balanced and didn't need weight, and they used 2oz on the front.

I was being totally sarcastic Spud. No offense taken, I loved it! You must have missed my supermodel rental comments. I just got an extra kick out of you of all people reinforcing my comments with a NICE visual analogy.
