Hey MCMA111. I hope you are healing well. How did you adjust your shifter. I've researched for hours and have not found an answer on how to raise the shift lever. I see you pulled off the cover for access. Can you just loosing the bolt and adjust it? My fancy new riding boots don't fit to shift gears. Thanks.

loosen bolt, slam flat screwdriver in slot to open gap

pull shift lever off

notice grooves/teeth

reinstall(with screwdriver still in slot on shift shaft with a little grease or locking compound) 2 or 3 teeth up

take screwdriver off

tighten bolt with locking compound

cheers

The shift lever fits on the shift shaft that is splined so that it stays in place. Usually you need to tap a flat blade screw driver in the split of the lever to help open it up so it will slide off of the shaft. Best to mark the lever and shaft before you start moving it around so you know where you started from. The shaft has a groove all the way around it so that if the bolt lossens up the shifter doesn't just fall off. The bolt has to be removed before the shifter will slide off of the splines. I had to remove the counter shaft cover because the shift lever would hit it (not enough travel) and not allow me to shift.

Pics of your handlebars with Tusk handguards

Hey All,

I'm trying to finish up my handlebar upgrade from stock:
  • Pro Taper Contour 1-18" Oversized Handlebars KX High
  • 2" Rox Risers
  • Tusk fat bar adapters
http://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p/...or-%2528P%2529

Now I have just about everything back together and tightening things up with final adjustments... and am finding that the cables and the tusk hand guards seem a little tight. My question to the group is in your current setup, do you have your cables routed below or above your hand guard hardware? Currently I have the cables routed above the hand guards but because I had to install the Tusk hand guard adapter for the fat bar, things seem a little tight - and I'm not sure longer cables would help. Tonight I may swap and route the cables below - but if I do that, the Tusk guards may be a little higher than I would like. Anyone have any pics of your setup you can share info I'd appreciate it.

I may post a picture tonight.

NEW to this forum

Hey guys, Im a member over at supermotojunkie and I recently decided to join here. I've had 3 suzuki bikes and now my first honda. Right now its an 07 xrl mainly factory. Im building it over the summer and converting to sm setup. I like a lot of the ideas i see in this thread and I'll be posting pictures here I'm sure. Here is a pic of what it looks like currently, as all I've done so far is the warp 9 wheels and IMS smog kit.

Very little grinding on the sprocket retainer & it will slip on. Steve grind off a little on the bottom of the sprocket cover, just enough to clear the lever & reinstall it.

Thanks for the help guys!

I would chamfer the sprocket splines on the case sides instead of grinding the retainer...

I took such a little off the retainer I think a file may have done the job. Don't think the retainer was weakened any. Once in place I doubt there is much strain on it?

Quick question here that I think I already know the answer to....

My bike's running kinda rough after I changed some gaskets in my carb, the only thing that I can think is different is where the fuel screw was adjusted, would that do it? I'm really behind on the carb power curve...

There are two type of fuel/air adjustments. If the screw is between the carb and the air box it is a AIR screw. If the screw is between the carb and the engine it is a FUEL screw. The XRL has a FUEL screw. By turning in the screw (leaner) you are reducing the amount of fuel at the lower operation range of the engine, idle to about 1/8 throttle. By turning it out you are giving the engine more fuel = richer. I usually set mine around 2 1/2 turns out from having the screw gently seated.

Yep, I guess that's what happens when you only read the thread over lunch...

Any pics of them mounted?

BTW - The first set of tie downs you sent me had off set holes and so I tried them on my XR250R and they bolted right up!! The second set seems to have the holes more exact so they only fit the XRL. Was happy that I got the first set when I did so I can have them on both bikes. Works nice on my carrier.
