Fast Ride From spring to summer...

Hello Folks! Hello Brothers!
Yes you are right , i'm still here...still working, planning , running and living..
A lot of work has been done around workshop and customers..
I have been having various experience with my XR. I rode to a big local festival like Burning man , so I checked the XR on a highway for the first time at 0-4 degrees celsius ...it was freezing but the heated grip and worked fine))..

it was an awesome trip , nature was just waking up again after winter, and the forest was giving great sense of fresh and new life with bird songs, wood breaths and bright stars at night.







While riding in the city and on a highway I faced some troubles with the Eddy carb, after riding at 5000 rpm and higher for a long time, The Carb was very slow or wouldn't drop rpm to idle .. i think there is some mechanical problem with slider or needle.. Does anybody know what the solution might be?
Secondly the clutch hub is noisy , I think i need to replace it on Hinson
and most unpleasant thing it is eating oil on hi rpm.. i don't have fine compression, it is 7-8 on hot engine , and I think I will do a full rebuild...What do you think about aftermarket parts like Kibblewhite or Xr's Only? ( I mean Cyl sleeve, valve giude, valves and springs)..I already bought wiseco piston and have been choosing other stuff from top to bottom ...


And Of course there is nice news, my brother got his XR 2003 , which we bought from NJ...

After riding both i must say they are awesome and absolutely different)))





Speaking about my intentions... I know the trip will take place...but at the right time..
I understand that first of all I need to complete all my projects at the workshop, because it's summer season. I also need to do rebuild on XR and do thorough preparations myself.
...So at the moment I'm working, feeling love and strength of my intentions...
Peace!

Alright Mikl, it's been over six months since we've heard anything from you. I keep popping back in here hopping to see that you've started your trip or done some other project on your XRR. Any updates?
