Pffft...You're just a light weight.



I also forgot to mention in that post I added Colloidal Silica to the G-flex to thicken it up to a paste like consistency so it wouldn't run.

We may pick on each other more than we ought to sometimes in this forum but we maintain respect for each other. I hope this helps you understand specifically what's wrong so you can work on improving, not just for here, but for life in general.
Now that's funny!

Wait, now which one are you again? The pot or the kettle?

Dude, your the same way, to a lesser degree.

You pick apart everyone's mods because YOU don't understand, then tell us why YOU think it's not any good and not what YOU think should be done and you always have a better way. Remember, different strokes for different folks. You seemed to know more about what I did on my bike then I did, and then gave me a smart ass, belittling response. The only person it belittled was you. Where did you pick up that crystal ball you look into? I want one!
In the last month you've told us how you can out ride, out speed, out shoot, out design, out diagnose, everybody else here. I'm sure I missed a few because there are so many.
You have been absent on ADV for what, 2 1/2-3 years? You should read more, post less. You pulled the same crap when you frequented ADV a few years back...
No one likes a braggart.

I always get the engine warm before draining the oil. I always let it run for ~30 seconds after adding ~1 1/2 quarts...then top it off.
I've only changed to oil on the 08 once but it took 2.5 almost to the drop. I've never added that much to the 04.
Go figure.?

If you get interested in a White Brothers let me know... Hoping to sell mine. I am replacing my current White Brothers with a FMF Q4 (that came in the mail last night!). My White Brothers is in good shape just too loud for me.

I have some of that tape in the garage too You guys have too many good ideas.....its like a buffet, I don't know what to try first

PM sent... not who you were referring to, but whatever.

Geez guys - enough bashing each other. Everyone has different experiences and wants to share them. Some share a little more than some of us would prefer, but that's why my browser is able to scroll. Also, it seems just about everyone on here is an expert, so when it comes to taking advice from any of us, a grain or 10 of salt is required.

Up until I pulled my engine apart, I didn't notice the drain plug near the shifter (right, Steve?) so I missed changing that oil, but I know better now. This is undoubtedly the source of the variable because when I'd drain my reserviour and replace the contents with a little over two quarts of new, I wouldn't get much if any level fluctuation after running. After I put my engine back together and back into the bike, filled up the reserviour, and rode around the yard, the level dropped from full to the bottom of the stick. That despite having dumped a quart of oil into the bottom of the engine/trans before installing the clutch cover, and - I do this at oil changes - inclining the bike toward the kickstand and filling the oil filter cavity with what oil I can fit. Sooo, it seems that the quantity of oil in the engine sump and in the return line to the reserviour at the time of change vs. time of measurement would be the variable causing the level fluctuations. It's not so freaky once garnering comprehension of system operation.

Now I drain the oil out of all my motors after they sit for long enough to cool to ambient temperature and let the oil settle in the bottom - no more warmups. I'm not worried about getting the old oil out quickly and warming spreads the oil throughout the engine thus I feel I get out more of the particles which may have settled to the bottom where the drain is, and maybe a little more oil.

I also stopped draining the little bit of oil that settles in the head on all my bikes that have that, it's so little that it doesn't seem worth the hassle and the chance of wearing out the tiny screw (or having it walk off while unattended). Maybe making up for the above with that to some extent... give and take...
Smart man......I think you just solved the puzzle Now all the searchers can dig up your very good explanation and have an answer.
This thread has so many answers for questions on the xrl its really mind boggling. And when doing google searches on the xrl this thread pops up quite often

and here I thought it was just me

I kinda hate to dog pile, and I'm guessing you don't realize how you are coming across. It is a bit hard to come across in the tone you want with only written words. My guess is, when you are writing your response they sound helpful to you. But to some of us they are coming across as bwalsh stated. I'm a piss poor writer, just hope I don't come across too bad

Christian, for the record I don't think your a dumb ass either but I think you need to rephrase that last part...sounds kinda kinky.

I wasn't ignoring this either. Just didn't have any pics and then forgot, until now...

In 2000 I added a SID SL(super light) fork, a Hayes front disc and disc compatible rim, longer handlebar stem and Easton bars and a Shimano XL rear derailer. The bike is one size too small for me but I like it for climbing steep hills or in rough terrain. If I loose traction I won't rack my balls on the cross tube. I'd like a shorter handlebar stem but it does OK. It took some getting used to.
I always add a 20 tooth (granny gear) chain ring when replacing the drive train and a tooth fairy to keep rocks off the big chain ring. The thumb shifters are still the stock ones as is the front Shimano DL derailer and the bottom bracket. Sorry for the crappy pics.





Hayes Hydraulic disc baby!


Performance bike "View Point" spot and flood lights. These are better than the one on the XR!


Hey, I even got part of an XR in one of the shots!

classic! good job man, Im still a fan of the hardtail specialized geometry of late 90s bikes, today they are just too weird looking..oh btw dont say anything about pedal bikes being at the forefront vs. motorcycles!

noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo, I almost got beat to death on a thread not to long ago...MAN

maybe my spanish to english mindset got the best of me...I meant cheers to you guys and Ill have a beer in your honour!

I, and I'm sure everyone else, knew exactly what you meant. I was just joking with you on the phrase stuff. I hope you didn't take it the wrong way.

That is a 1992 Stump Jumper, the first year it came with that newfangled "optional" front suspension, aka, future shock(FS). Another five years and it will be an antique!
I don't need or want a full suspension pedal bike. That bike has seen some pretty gnarly trails in it's life and hopefully many many more!
