You could always do the trick for making the holes smaller. Tap the holes to a nylon screw size insert screw trim off flush and drill correct size. Not easy if you are just wanting to do a back to back test.

Hmm. I'll need to think about that. Just curious for when I tear down my carb again to try some different jets in it. It already had Dave's mod done to it when I bought the bike, but the jet sizes were weird so I tried something different.

I remember inspecting my slide and seeing that the holes were drilled out, but they weren't quite as big as the mod calls for, so I drilled them to Dave's mod spec. I'm just nervous now thinking that I could have grabbed the wrong bit. It's probably the size it should be, but there's that doubt in my mind now.

4strokes no longer shows removing this as part of the recc smaug removal. It was mistakenly thought to be a charcoal cansiter, which only appears on california bikes.

I temporarily removed it because with it off I could rotate the carb and get the bowl off with the carb on the bike, and left it off because it didn't pee oil into the airbox.

Epoxy glue can be used as well.

They don't know any better. I also, mistakenly removed the oil separator, but I re-installed it after I learned its true purpose. Mike Bratcher made an excellent video demonstrating how to remove the SMOG gear from the XR650L.

True...you could do that with most drum brakes if you squeezed enough. It's not about being able to lock brakes up but about keeping the brakes right at the threshold before lock-up with as little effort as possible. Modulation baby. My RM250 with an oversize Galfer set-up and a Galfer braided line is a true one finger set-up. I want to ride a bike with the Brembo mono-block calipers.

In the paperwork they have a big disclaimer saying its the hardest recoiling handgun ever made, and to use extreme caution when firing it

I have yet to fire it, but all the local gun shops/shooting ranges say its a monster to fire, and will jack your hand up bigtime if you're not careful I do have some really cool 410 self defense rounds for it, as well as some 45 and stupid high grain 45-70 rounds I bought in a moment of testosterone-fueled insanity

That's insane, a .45-70 Derrriger? I though it was crazy in a heavy revolver. WOW.

I'm sorda in your neck of the woods.. A little east. You've got a lot of good forest roads to explore in the Pisgah.. Have fun on the xrl!

No, it is HOLES.

I stand corrected! Faulty memory, should have checked the picture. Thanks Brown Falcon.

I put mine back on as well. In fact, the guy I got the block off kit from strongly suggested that I reinstall it. I never noticed too much blowback in the airbox, but it certainly can't hurt.

Older poll, but open, Twisted Throttle looking for XRL info for subframe support

Just thought I'd share the link...its a Twisted Throttle poll finding out what aftermarket exhausts XRL owners are running, to try and design a better subframe support for our bikes. Here's the poll http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=747108

Not sure if its still valid but saw it on TT and thought I'd share
