I'm not familiar with that mod.
It's part of "Daves Mods"...

The reason I said to check is some folks buy the Dyna jet kit and just replace jets, sometimes the wrong size jets, and don't do anything else. You know the old saying, "if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself". It applies here too.

Don't forget the battery tender....very easy to install the pigtails at the same time as the battery. Keep it plugged in when not riding and you'll prolly sell the bike before you need another battery
Plus the pigtails can also run other accessories....like a tiny 12 volt tire pump like the one that came in my slime kit I have tenders and pigtails on all my bikes, and carry the slime kit in my backpack with tire plugs and slime for both tube and tubeless tire repairs
You can also plug cigarette style outlets into them for charging/running devices like gps, phones etc. The Schumacher style tenders come with a nice thick gauge wire too

I guess what I'm asking is... is there anything that the bolt goes through on the inside edge, or is the roller just "perched" on the bolt?

I decided to employ a large chain roller to replace the chain slipper. Most large chain rollers should work, so I looked for the best bargain, and decided to buy a Primary Drive, lower chain roller designed for the 2000, Honda XR600R. This chain roller is 38 mm in diameter.

After removing the stock chain slipper, I found it easiest to remove the left foot peg before I drilled the mounting hole to enlarge it to 5/16-inch. I also discovered I had much more room to install the front chain roller after I removed both the sprocket cover, and the shift lever.

I placed a -inch washer on the supplied bolt, and shoved the bolt through the chain roller from the engine side of the frame. I then added 4, -inch washers to space the roller evenly under the chain. Adding another -inch washer on the outside of the frame, I attached the supplied, nyloc nut.





After I switched to the wider, XR650R C/S sprocket, I removed one of the washers between the frame tab and the chain roller; I now have 3 washers in that position.

I'll check but not sure how necessary that will be, he says he upgraded to a 41mm pumper carb.

Still isn't mine but here are pics from his ad.













The only thing cosmetic I don't care for is the tail light, I plan to swap it for an LED light strip under the fender lip. Otherwise from the pics it looks great, love the MX rear fender. I plan to go look at it in person this tuesday and may well be bringing it home.

Make sure and ask him for the OEM stuff. You might not like that stuff now, but replacing it is expensive! You should look at the for legs too since he took the fork protectors off... There is a lot done to that bike and I don't know if you plan on getting it street legal but if you do you'll have to do something about the tail light and maybe the turn signals. Just ask him for the OEM stuff, like the forkboots, the dash, the muffler and header, the rear fender the turn signals and tail light/plate holder, mirrors...

I'd ask him about maintenance(mainly how often he changes the oil and ask him to show you the bolts to drain it, if he doesn't know that is a bad sign) and any internal engine mods. If you hear the words "hot cam" proceed with caution! If you plan on putting turn signals and a tail light on there you might want to look at what he did with the wiring...

Here in NC blinkers aren't required. That tail/brake light is actually DOT approved, I have the same one on my SV650. I think the only possible issue with that bike might be the headlight. Fortunately the inspectors around here don't check headlights closely. I've rarely had a DOT headlight on a bike in years. They've always "passed" inspection.

If you look closely there is a lic. plate hanger on the tail edge of the fender. WMD doesn't know it yet, but we'll be trading bikes when we hit the trail.

Some funky shit goin on with the muffler... my Q4 does not have a row of holes around the tail pipe. Looks like some backyard engineering perhaps. Bike looks very modded. Could be a great find or a complete disaster depending on how ham fisted the owner is.
