Any ideas as to what this part might be?

Mileage is about 4400. Year 2000 XR650L
Bike is running fine. I'm hesitant to do exploratory surgery unless necessary.

If it's magnetic, it's ferrous. Perhaps it's a gear tooth? Do you hear any noises, or encounter any difficulties while shifting?

Here's how I've been talking about wiring the dimmer without the switch.


This is how I encouraged Spud to do his, when he first started talking about it, and the way I'd do it. The only thing missing from this diagram, that I would put in, is an inline fuse next to the battery in the wire leading to the relay, say 20 amp for 12 gauge wire in the power circuit.

Engine would be hard to start if that tab was missing. The decom would not work.

I'll see your proposal, and raise you. I will ride down to Corvallis, and give you my T4 with the rest of the XL attached, and your give me your stock muffler with the XR attached.

BTW: Have you seen my XL?

It's about 60-80 bucks in the title transfer fees but it will let you get it on the road. YMMV. Another way is to get a bike from out of state and do the the same thing as above but without having to "sell" it. When you apply for the VA title make sure you put motorcycle in the body style block.

The paper work you speak of is on the back of the title. It has to be turned into the DMV. If there is anything wrong with the title, erasure marks, lines scratched over with ink, missing signatures, etc. it is considered invalid, then you are really F'd.
With a Certificate of origin(COO), I assume there is no signing off by the PO but you have to turn that paper in as well. AFAIK they all say "off road only".
I've heard of a couple folks getting by the regs but you have to turn in your old title to the DMV rep. Occasionally a rep will not catch the "off road only" on a COO but not often.
There is a local inmate who just bought a used 2 stroke figuring on titling it. I'll ask him if he has done it yet and get back to you.

It's got a 3:1 compression ratio, you'd never notice.

From the tales of those who bump up the comp and install a cam with no decomp, it would probably light right off w/o the decomp.

Looks like could be part of the rockers to me as well.

Nic576,
That 2nd pic looks pretty close to the mystery chunk o steel. May have to pop the valve cover off and take a look.
Could that tab travel down to the crankcase?

Hmm, I don't recall seeing your XL... but NO, you can't have the XR! I've got a stock 600R muffler on my XRL with the insert removed. Currently fabbing up a turn-down for it.

Precisely why I opted to go to 15/50 from the popular 14/47. So far, so good.

I knew I forgot something in the diagram. Well a couple things. I told ya'll I don't do diagrams.

The darker area between the chrome tip and the aluminum body is made of up several discs, 10 is stock I think. Had one on an XR400 ended up running about 6 discs to get the best combination of performance and not obnoxious. The less discs the more restriction, more discs less restriction. With less restriction often comes noise.
I HAVE been looking in the wrong place, alright; mine is quite different. This is the best shot I can find at the moment:

It even had the sticker on then. Too bad we can't really see it.

In case anyone is curious, this is what the inside of the exhaust insert for a XR600R looks like. There was another tube on the inside originally restricting it to less than 3/4" and leaving an air gap between the inner baffle and the baffle which is the inner edge on the picture.



I cut the cap off of the insert in order to make a turn-down for my muffler. If I need to quiet it down any more than the turn-down does I'll probably weld a washer on the inside of the cap with a smaller hole, or make my own re-packable baffle similar to the Thumper Racing insert which is no longer made.
