Air Filter Cleaning

Yes gasoline will work but you then need to wash the filter to get rid of the residue before you oil it up.

+1... gas followed by mild soap (blue Dawn), air dry, apply oil, insert, ride on! I'm new to owning an XRL but unless it's airfilter differs from a traditional foam filter that's common on atvs, lawnmowers, etc. I'd stick to this method... Has always worked for me on foam filters.

Huh... Speaking of air filters maybe I'll check/clean mine tomorrow... Just acquired this bike a week ago... So far I've only de-stickered it from the previous owner, changed the oil, and got a tag! Went for my first real ride today... really liking the XRL!

Can't speak in favor or against the carb cleaner... never used it.

Clean the air filter with gasoline. After all the dirt and filter oil are removed, wash the filter thoroughly in soapy water. Then rinse all the soap out of the filter, and let the filter dry. After the filter is completely dry, apply your No-Toil filter oil. Let the carrier evaporate completely until the filter oil becomes tacky. Once the oil is tacky, you can install the air filter in your XR650L.

Did you bring along the original, red, No-Toil filter oil, or the new, Evolution filter oil?

That is where the TrailTech sensor connects.

I already have bark busters, XRR sprocket, Dave's mods and 55/158 jetting, K&N air filter (not thrilled with this), smog removed, snorkel removed, and Hoglegs from Manracks.

So far this is my list:
- tires (somthing better than the Avon's I have now)
- fork boots
- skid plate
- fork brace
- case guard (on shifter side)
Also, need to get me some of those combination tire-iron/axle nut wrench tools, and a couple extra tubes.

Can't remember if I posted this before...

Here's my bike as it is now with the MSR handguards and my B&W Outdoor Case on the back. So far the case is working great! I don't even notice it when riding, fits a helmet with room to spare, and totally waterproof. Great for my commute to school 5 days a week in this rainy Oregon weather.

Check out their website if you want to know more about their stuff. Their sensor connects to the banjo.

You can buy a Trail Tech, TTO Temperature Gauge.

http://trailtech.net/tto_temperature.html



I installed a TTO Temperature Gauge with the BSPP 1/8-28 temperature probe when I installed my oil cooler.

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=781962







I believe you want the 10mm cylinder head temperature sensor if you wish to mount the sensor on the banjo bolt for the external oil line to the cylinder head.

http://www.trailtech.net/7500-3010.html



I see Trail Tech is also offering an M12 bolt which will probably fit the oil drain plug on the crankcase.

http://www.trailtech.net/VA-12150.html



However, you would need to run a long wire from a BSPP 1/8-28 temperature probe to use this 12mm bolt.

winter mods, commuter set up.......

While I don't post much I'm lurking here daily, I posted a few questions earlier this spring after I picked up my 2012 XR650L. I still really like the cycle (I currently only have the one cycle). I haven't delved in to many mods, having been laid off for a couple months cahs was tight, back to work now and I'm making my list:
what I've done so far;
4 gallon clarke tank
crf front fender
skid plate
rear rack (hopefully will be replaced with a manracks one)

so with the limited riding season coming up here in upstate NY here's my list:

XRR moose/PBI front sprocket
smog removal/block off
rejet- I know everyone say do Dave's Mod, I'm thinking of just a couple of jets and go....use stock air filter, maybe the factory pro jet kit
replace the handlebars (bent couple drops on the trials) with protaper ATV hi bars

I've already done a few oil/filter changes been using the spec'd Honda 10w-30 oil, I've been getting it online for about the price of Rotella at Walmart (from Ron Ayers)
one question I have is the Rotella synthetic?

Another new job has a commute of about 40 miles each way mostly slab at 65mph+
is anyone riding the 650l daily under these conditions?
I'm looking for ideas for tires (I still want some dirt light off road capability), wind screen,
eventually an oil cooler either one from Sutton Cycle works or the Van Pelt one if it is still being made.

Anyway I'm just looking for ideas, my other option is to look for a more street oriented ride like an old Suzuki bandit, Kawi Concours, etc, pm me if you like

thanks all.......

The oil temp guage... is it needed, or is it more of a curiosity thing?

I mean, if oil temperature was something we had to worry about wouldn't honda have put on one there?

Not trying to start trouble, just an honest question.

After a 180 mile dual sport ride yesterday, doing 70-75 mph on highway, + 1st and 2nd gear black diamond single track, then a spirted backroads canyon carving run home. leads me to think. # 1 i could have slowed down, took a break and had a beer. # 2 i most likely heated up my oil.

I did buy a 22oz beer,strap it to my manracks rubicon, and enjoy the beer before i dropped into the trail system at cow mtn...
