TJE, did you thoroughly soak the fibers in oil prior to install?

I'll check after breakfast and let ya know.
Well looks like I havent been using the choke right. Embarrassing...

Gotta head to Denver so don't have time to apply my new found knowledge. Later today though.

Thanks man.

Easy.
Drill a very small hole in the center of the remnant, as dead-center & as square as you can get.
Then next drill a bit bigger, but with a size that will allow you to hammer-in an allen key.
Then hammer in allen key and turn it out.

Oh, renew ALL the bolts, cheap enough.


Edit: someone mentioned 'dry friction plates' and 'soaking them in oil'. You did the latter didn't you? You should, overnight, maybe even heat the lot a bit. I'd put them in an pan with oil, heat to say 100C and let them cool off overnight.

Having purchased lots of oem honda parts over the years I can tell you that these are current manufacture. They have the shiny new red labels and such. But they also do not cross reference with any other machines.

They are using these parts elsewhere, probably alot of the Honda's have a 22mm petcock.

I think I know why they won't sell the parts separate, liability. lawyers, and gas leaks explosions ect....

In fact if you are not careful it is very VERY easy to tear the x-ring that goes on the handle= leaky gas.

Dont worry about it , you are not the first person to get confused with the " Clear honda marking " , i did the same when i got the bike .
I was trying to start the bike for the first time this year , could not start it no matter what i tryed , normaly it starts first kick , i was getting loads of explosions in the exhaust , then a really big one and heard the kids outside shouting .....
I have forgot about the exhaust plug thingy , the last explosion inside the exhaust was strong enough to shoot the focker about 30 feets outside the garage like a cannon , hence the excited children ,
noone was hurt in this story .

Why all this anti-clutch sentiment?

I think the anti-clutch crowd needs to go ride.
Lots of guys rarely use the clutch, it's common practice for many racers. The tranny handles it fine as long as the rider knows what he's doing. The clutch enguagment is actually the hardest thing on the bike's motor oil by far, as the plates come together the oil molicules get sheared breaking them down which along with small capacity is the primary reason for dirtbikes short oil chg intervals. MC specific oils have a slightly different molicule structure for this very reason. That being said, I use the clutch except when clicking up a gear at higher speds. My point is it's not a problem if one doesn't use the clutch when it's done properly and it's actually better for the oils life.

Hi AJ,

Sorry it took so long to get back with the info on the CRFX fender Mod. I've been busy and it took a bit to find it.

Should I swap to a 14 front, or do I need to rejet and put an aftermarket air filter in it?

I'm starting to wonder now. I think my bike is losing power, is this possible? I have no speedo so it's hard to judge. But I chased a friend down in their car and passed them easily at 65 a few weeks ago. Blew by them and kept adding it on. Is it possible the problem was a lot of wind? Bah, asking all these questions when I should just go ride it down the highway again. Maybe there was too much wind, or people were going a lot faster than I thought.

Anybody?

I have just a few rides on the XRR I bought, it has 15-45 with supermoto wheels, which I can't see affecting acceleration much. It still pulls well at 75. Do you know what RPM you are pulling at that speed? My bike came with a Vapor so I do have RPM readout, but I am not sure what RPM I'm pulling at those speeds. Can take note for you if you like....

No, but I try to not let it sound too busy. I would think 3,500-5,000 max. Probably closer to the low side of that. I got a speedometer and air filter on their way in the mail. I haven't had time to ride it lately, maybe in a couple of days I can get someone to follow at 75 down the highway. I was just judging by the speed people ride the highways here. I was VERY SLIGHTLY edging out the other drivers, and they tend to run 75 here. A couple of times I gave it more trying to catch up and go ahead and pass them, but it didn't seem too interested in it. It was quite windy though, so maybe I'm just paranoid, it was the first time I've had it on the highway.

A friend has one of these on his DRZ400SM, it's a neat little gadget. I like to know what RPM the motor is at. If my bike didn't have the Vapor I would get one of these Tiny Tach's

your bike at 75mph would be in the range of 5,200 to 5,500 or more rpm's
