Putting the right foot down and keeping the left on the peg should allow instant pop into first and gone...

I think the astonishment, though, is that neutral is pretty hard to find from 2nd on the big red latte-getter. Can't do it on mine, at least not with my MX boots on.
Oops... meant no offense... guess I've just been at it a good bit longer. Takes me no time to pop it in first and take off. Do have gap or other excape picked out. But no point in ragging out my clutch and hand for no reason.

Pretty much always pop it into neutral from second when stopping. Don't do many traffic control lights on the BRP, though.

Yep. The whoop-dee-doo was whooped and went.

Yeah that was a blast! I gave up scraping and took the wire brush to it.

Personally I have never heard of lectron carbs before, but that probably doesn't mean much. If you are just worried about altitude changes, then save your money. The stock CV carb handles that just fine. I have had my bike from sea level to 11,300 feet with no rideabilty problems.

Dreaming about the xr 650 L since 2000 and finally May 2, 2013 it came true. I think at 6'4 I make this bike look a little small. Ha Ha, Built just for me.

The 650 went from truck to driveway, to parents house, to field and then to miles of weyerhauser land....what a great time. Can't wait till tomorrow, new day, new places to explore.

Ha ha, but no. Just trying to show that he has other options besides buying a newer bike. These bikes have changed so little since their introduction. Most of the differences are cosmetic.

Wheres that ONandUP fella,,he`ll back me up...


Hey Fritz,,can i get on an easy pay plan,,i`ll send you money till it`s paid,,then you can send it....i`m up to my ears in payments this month

Maybe i can fix more CDI`s and make some spare cash,,anybody want a CDI fixed



B
I attempted a "CDI Repair" testimonial a couple of days ago on my phone,,,fat fingers on virtual keyboards using TAPATALK is a joke.

Techforlife can fix up your CDI by mail in less time than you can get the tools out, watch a YouTube video, and have a beer. Not to mention my soldering skills are as clumsy as typing on a virtual keyboard.

Thanks again Mr.Life.

Clarke 4.7 gal. tank gas cap o-ring

Has anyone had to replace the o-ring inside the cap of their Clarke tank? Mine has disintegrated and Clarke wants to sell me the entire cap. I'm looking for an aftermarket alternative.

I've got a perfectly functioning Clarke gas cap that's been listed in the FS forum since the 11th of last month. I'll even throw in the tank and the petcock with it...

Can you cut a gasket out, like the old Mr. Gasket kit, probably available at AutoZone. My mom and pop hardware store has the best selection of o-rings
