It will come out without the special tools. You need them to put it alll back together correctly.

Also, looking at your chain's eating marks in the swinger, you're not related to oztrayan Sean-O aren't you?

The internal castle nut holds the swing arm, the external castle nut locks the internal one. This should hold the swingarm in place without the bolt being inserted.

This is my swingarm, looks similar to both yours and Sean-O's. They are easily repaired.

Guys,

got a Q: anyone knows of or has SW for drawing wiring diagrams?
Free intuitive stuff if at all possible please, and the use of colours would help a lot. I'm only looking for a picture, not simulations or why.
Anyone?

Easy as pie.
The swingarm bolt came out, and the swingarm dropped down, i was expecting to have to back out the castle bolts with the homemade tools.

Thank you, spent many hours over at Garage Journal gathering ideas and ambition. I do not have any more pics, but if you would like, i can get some.

XRs only has the correct one for the XRR.

Hope this helps!

Is this a normal CRF lever that uses the hotstart option for decompression?

The hotstart lever lacks the leverage needed for decomp unless you have gorilla hands. I tried it and it can work, but it sucks in my opinion. So ended up running a ASV c6 clutch lever and kept the factory perch for the decomp, and it all fits on the bars with a multi-switch.

Steel Subframe any reviews.

I was looking at the Steel Subframe from globetrotin.com

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

http://shop.globetrottin.com/product.sc?productId=33

Any reviews. How much stronger than stock, can it take a full load of gear?

The old Pro perch had a longer lever for the decomp, but since then they standardised to the smaller levers for the more popular hot start on the newer range.

Help a brother out.....

I've got my DR up for sale or trade and was thinking about a street legal XR650R or a 650L....what are the pros and cons, basically?

Should I be concerned with the over heating issue during Georgia summer rides of the XR?
Can I get electric start on an XRR?

I want to get a little more aggressive off road, but like the idea of japanese reliability.

Thanks for your thoughts!

27,000KM, much of it offroad with ~70lbs of gear. Yes it works.
