However, when I violated the EXACT starting procedure (cold vs. hot vs. hot flooded due to a get-off) I could kick that bike till I was totally exhausted and not even get it to pop.

Needless to say, the carbs on XRs are very finicky. Though it's a total pain to do so, I'd suggest taking the carb off the bike again, thoroughly cleaning it again...using plenty of high pressure compressed air to make sure every minuscule bit of dirt is out of every passageway...then resetting it exactly to the factory specs.

When you go to start it be sure to not even touch the throttle. If your bike is like most XRs, even a touch of throttle will flood it.

I'm sorry if you know all this and i'm coming off like a jerk. I'm not trying to talk down to you, but I remember learning the hard way about my XR, which is probably one of the reasons I love my WRR so much.

I was leaving the grocery store with a case of beer, guy stopped me and asked about my beemer, said he rides dirtbikes, and has a cbr1000 and his buddies and he have been talking about bigger bikes.

I told him to buy a KTM 990.



he took a picture of my beer on the rear of the beemer, I directed him here, lets see how long it takes him to find the BS thread.


OH, my new idea for a tag didnt pan out, stupid fences and no tresspassing signs.

where his pipes not loud enough that you could hear him and avoid the crash?



did you wave, honk, throw pennies, shoot at him or ANYTHING?
that would make me angry too, ive noticed this, froma distance any bike that doesnt have the triangular headlight look like a large cruiser, could be mistaken for a scooter.

IM not saying right or wrong, but im pretty sure often times that happens.
