Can I use the older CDI to test for spark?
Welcome !

Like Christian said, start with the easy things like a new spark plug and plug cap and take a little of the cap wire before you rescrew it.
Also, visually check your wiring harness where possible without having to remove the entire thing. Look for bad spots / connections, pay special attention to the frame ground.

Also, check or disconnect the kill switch, it could be robbing you off a spark right there if it's shorting out.


The stator could be the problem, but is expensive to replace, so measure it if you can.

I replaced my pulse generator myself recently with a good used one from Ebay, was about 30 bucks, so that's not too bad.

Let us know where you stand, good luck !

Hahahaha good find!

In other news: I've organised replacement gears from Steve who has posted them to me a couple of days ago. THis should fix my transmission problems and prevent/delay the 2nd/3rd gears explosions.

I have also just ordered a big bunch of stuff from the states, totalling $500.

Gaskets, springs, filters, cam, rockers, cam chains, seals and a variety of other small things. Should be here soon.

All that is left is to get a top end kit, get the cyclinder bored and honed and choose a piston. I've changed from the high comp Wiseco, now either the 99mm Wossner or the 100mm JE. Since Im not resleeving I am leaning towards the Wossner.

Cheers,

John

Stator check?

Hey peeps, probably been posted before, but is there a sign of a XR stator about to go ? Or do they just stop ?

Made it to the Vicco High Country on Sunday, excellent time...

It should be noted that you should go to the vendors forum for this. Your post could be deleted or moved by a mod should one happen along. Perhaps come back and post a linky.

Just trying to help.

yeah you hit it on the head wuth the mikuni comments, its not so much power you gain but added bonused LIKE not prone to stalling as much, if you do it will idle on its side for a good minute or so giving you the abilty to pick the bike up and keep riding, if it does stall you use the same kickthrough method and it will start better than oem...

I have a nice low end punch and no bog, NO BOG, that something that unless you jet insanely FAT on the oem carb you will never eliminate it.

anywhoo

yeah

any othert comments about you wossner 98mm? good power? runs cool? cooler? or hotter? does it rattle a lot at idle when cold?

do you suck oil? aka burn at high rpm?

cheers bud

peace

its runs mint bro, best looking piston i've ever seen. couldnt comment on tempertures but definately No rattle at idle and no noticable oil usage. just followed the tolerence specs on the box .... no complaints from me. Plus the cost was cheaper than any where i could find over here as the shop i got it from did a bulk order so it worked out cheaper than ordering other brands from over seas which is still way cheaper than Honda NZ not sure if they do the big bore with sleeve so i might get a JE for the 644, will wait and see could be a while before i can save up some pingers

What exactly would be the consequences of running with too much oil in the frame/engine ?

Filled er up two weeks ago, let her run for a while with a load of oil in it, and topped it off according to the dipstick afterwards.

I just came back from a ride, got the oil all hot and bothered, and I pulled the dipstick right away upon arrival to check level.
Only to find that I could see the oil in the frame right away, way up high. It's close to 2 cm (like 3/4 inch) above the 'upper' mark on the dipstick...

So apparently the bike didn't run long enough when I filled her and checked the level, stupid, stupid

What parts of my engine could be unhappy about this?

It's no big deal if there is to much oil in the frame. The frame is vented to the top of the rocker cover and the engine case is vented above the transmission. You will not be blowing seals due to to much pressure. You could suck or syphon some oil out of the frame or take the drain bolt off of the engine case and just let a bit out. Use a clean catch can so if too much comes out you can put it back in.
