Its wider. reportedly keeps the countershaft from wearing out

You're welcome, John. The first installation of the XR650R C/S sprocket frequently requires a little "persuasion" to get it to fit. Subsequent installations are easier, after the XR650L countershaft conforms to the wider sprockets.

If you wish to learn more about my experience using the XR650R C/S sprocket on the XR650L, you might enjoy reading the following thread.

http://www.thumpertalk.com/topic/867...650r-sprocket/

Incidentally, I always recommend either the PBI, or the Moose Racing, XR650R C/S sprockets for the first installation on the XR650L countershaft. These particular sprockets are a little thinner than others, and also have a deeper chamfer. Therefore, the PBI/Moose Racing sprockets require less "persuasion" for the initial installation. Subsequent installations get easier as the XR650L countershaft conforms to the wider sprockets.

My chain and sprockets are in good shape and my countershaft has ben replaced and is in good shape. To prevent having to replace the counter shaft again I will use the xrr front sprocket next replacement. Thanx. P.S. is this Dave's mods tough to do.

You're welcome. As Kenny stated, Dave's mods are very easy to perform after you remove the carburetor. You can read the details regarding this modification at the following thread.

I buy carburetor jets for all my bikes from Rocky Mountain ATV/MC.

I know the first owner. Carbon is stock. He said he removed the smog stuff. What's that mean?

The smog "octopus" is stock equipment on all XR650L motorcycles. You can shed 2.0 pounds of unsightly hoses and metal by removing the "smog tumor." Michael Bratcher posted a superb video detailing his removal of the smog pump.



Thanks for taking the time to film the great video, Mike!

Yes there is a special tool you may also use two drill bits that fit in the hole. hold the tops together with one hand and putsomething between them to twist with the other

Well......you need to drill the peens out,,drill just as far as it`s peened,,don`t drill in any farther.......

You can get a special tool and screw the retainer out,,or use 2 drill bits in the holes and a longer screw driver placed between the drill bits will act as the tool.........

If the bearings are smooth running,leave them alone.....you do not want to go in there unless you plan on installing new seals and bearings...

When/if you replace the bearings,,get double sealed bearings and pop one seal off with a pick and lube with good waterproof grease..

Rear Wheel Bearing Retainer

You should see 4 indents. One each between the 4 holes in the retainer. Get a 1/8" drill bit and drill in about a 1/8". Take a punch and tap the retainer counter clockwise and once free it should spin right out. If the retainer looks un-molested then there is only the factory grease in the bearings which to say AINT SHIT. Have fun greasing away

The XR650L has sealed bearings. You must drill out the peen marks before you can remove the bearing retainer. After drilling the retainer, you can use a special tool to remove the retainer. However, most people put two drill bits into two of the holes, and place a long screwdriver between the two drill bits to torque the retainer counterclockwise.
