Thank you so much for the offer.

But I know it's the kill switch. The other day I ran up to Wally World and on the way back I left the light, 1st, 2nd 3rd, 4th, half way up the on ramp, dead engine. Since I have the reflexes of a wild Puma, without even releasiong the throttle I cycled the kill switch and she EXPLODED back to life. I think I blew out my fresh muffler re-pack in that one shot.

I haven't been in the motor yet but have my bike running pretty hard for a stock motor. I'v took a lot of weight off it as well. I run the xrs only header and pipe and have polished the exhaust side of my head, as far as my finger could reach with sandpaper, haha. With the exhaust opened up these bikes need more air. Was drinking beer one day, messing with my bike, and was putting the seat on and realized how close it sat on the air box. Thought damn, can't much air get to it. Trimmed down the part of air box thats raised. Went up couple sizes on main and needle. Big results. Thought damn, so i started giving more air then more fuel as i went. Ran better and better each time. I'v went as far as i can go. Im running the factory pro jet kit with needle shimmed 15 thousands between 4th and fith position and 190 main.

What kind of figures are you getting for gas mileage?

Hey guys,

Need a little help. My XR came with a Cycle Racks rear luggage rack. The Dims on it is 12"x18". What soft luggage bag can i use?? The PO had a Nelson-Rigg something or another bag on it, but it was worn completley out and it looks weird with no bag on it. Thoughts????????

Chris

Mine did that too......cycling the kill switch seemed to wake up the CDI...repaired the CDI and it was fixed..

Me too. What's your plan on that? I was thinking an oversized header and a tighter can.

The main problem with these units is in the main relay contacts on the board inside the CDI.and the relay itself.the solder joints take a shit kicking with the high current loads..there are about 20 other common solder failures on the board too...

All i know for sure on my bike is it died while riding...cycling the kill switch seemed to help...or it could have just been a coincidence too..

Soldering up the CDI fixed the prob,,none since in 3 years...

But i agree the kill switch is a problem area too...worth going after and cleaning/replacing........

Diodes dont "stick" .....but cycling the kill switch shuts down the main relay...
