You are a brave man! A box of parts like that would scare me to death even if I was the one who tore it apart. Putting somebody else's puzzle together... ouch!

Hopefully the guy who gave/sold it to you isn't as ornery as I am... I would have tossed a couple of extra springs, bits and pieces in the box... just for fun!

I cant seem to buy a bike unless it comes at least partially in a box 2 exceptions being my tz250 which which I disassembled and rebuilt completely and my 2000 GSXR600 which I bought new.

I have an old Honda too its older than me, a CL160 "needs some drag bars" but I want to sell that once it warms up. Its a fun little bike but I need the space now that I have the XRL.

Very cool. This is the bike JN Roberts first raced in the desert Dist. 37. Pre Husky days.

You didn't read, or comprehend, a word I said in the two previous posts. You're weren't here to see what was going on with my troubleshooting skills or bikes symptoms, or lack thereof, so you really have no clue as to WTF you're talking about.

EDIT: BTW, don't act surprised when you read this. It isn't the first or tenth time you've spewed this crap on ADV.

Never been started


Big box-o-parts

Used to race 450s in AHRMA and WERA....Had a Henning head/pistons....pretty fast for a 40 year old bike. If you have a stock head, the hot setup is to reverse the torsion bars....requires some work, but makes the valves slam shut quickly....the really hot setup is to convert to valve springs. Good luck in putting it back together.

I love a good challenge! And I'm a cheap bastard. Spent Sunday afternoon just getting all that crap organized. My biggest fear is the electrical. Not my strong suit.

That CL is pretty cool but one reason I wanted a 74 is the front disc brake. I'm hoping that this thing will be a peppy little machine and I want to be able to stop it :)

You won't have any problem selling that bike....the 160s are a fairly new class in vintage racing, and becoming very popular. At Barbers last Oct., it was one of the largest classes to race, and they used a LeMans start, which made it even more fun to watch. That's a really nice looking 160!

Where am I?

Hey is this the XR650L forum? I wasn't sure, because at first I thought it was the Gun-Owner's Forum, then maybe the Even Older Honda Technology Forum...OK, enough whining. Sorry guys.

Question, I'm trying to switch my XR back to stock and can't get the Screen out of the fuel tank to put back in the stocker. What I was wondering - from someone that knows for sure - can I get away with just the O-Ring seal, or does the Screen have some type of Seat for the O-Ring? I don't want to spend any more money on this bike, so that includes the $30 for the Screen.

HELP!!!

That screen is the de-facto fuel filter. Without it any crap in the tank can and most likely will find it's way to the carb. You can't get it out of the aftermarket tank? Even wiggling it around some? It may be stuck on the tank and need some gentle persuasion.
You could always put a fuel filter on it.
Just looked at Service Honda, that screen set is $27!!

What about this type of packing?

Anyone know how to use this stuff??

Yeah, I know buying a new one is the "right" thing to do, but I don't want to spend another penny, and just want to put her back on line. I can always add a filter, but the bike will be gone 5 minutes after it's together and then it's up to the next owner.

That particular FMF muffler packing is loose, and not woven into a pillow like the Lexx muffler packing. Therefore, you must weave the loose packing around the silencer core while it is installed in the muffler body. As the video demonstrates, the Lexx MXe Premium Silencer Packing is much easier to install.

How I would do the repacking with this material is to pull the core out and clean it. Put the core back in almost all of the way but sticking out a bit. Then start stuffing the muffler and push the material into the muffler with a dowel or some-such until you can't get any more in. Push the core all of the way in and your done.

Roughed in but plenty of work to go removing more aluminum from both the cush and wheel, I am now in need of a 520 sprocket + tires to complete the fitting which is dam tight. I must have removed 1" off the cush and .25" off the brake side of the wheel.

Anyone know what a good starting point for sprockets with 17" wheels is?
