Geez, no the water level OK, but nobody can say your shit doesn't stink.
Do I need to explain this up/down thing AGAIN?
There is no up or down, there is only away from a point.

90% of the miles are likely to be street so when I tell you these are TrailWings, don't let that influence your opinion.

What's your thoughts on an 80/100/21 on the front of an XRL?

RZ Rob
I thought the /100 was the stock L size?

Anyway, no prob running that tire, might see slightly higher or lower turn-in effort.

I'm using a size 80/100-21, front tire; it works well on all surfaces.

I just took my new bike on it's first real shake down ride since I got it.
I did the dave's mods, tossed the snorkel, uni-filter, 52/155 jetting and an FMF Q.
I got a 48t sprocket and of course it doesn't fit the stock chain. How many links are needed for the 15/48 combo?
And the trailwings are deadly in the woods! Especially wet woods with rocks and rooties.
If I get the D606's, what tire pressure (lowest) can I get away with without rim locks?
What sizes front and rear?
The suspension is hack too. It's ok, but it needs work. For now, I have to run it. Any thoughts on where to put the clickers on the forks and shock? I live in Vermont and the trails are awesome and gnarly. Nothing but rocks and roots. (I did put in the progressive fork springs)
Thanks

The more I think about it, I will probably just get Tubliss and new tires that I can run at 10psi in the rear and 12 up front.
I know the D606 seems to be the tire of choice, but it looks like that is considered great out west.
Is it a good tire for any of you here in the northeast?
Or, what's better?
For woods I always ran the Pirelli MT 16 rear (120) and the Bridgestone M59 front
Obviously they're not DOT. I'm not as concerned about that as much as longevity. I know if I run the MT16 on the pavement for very long it will wear out pretty quickly.

The D606 is far from the tire of choice for the front. I ran one... hated it. The MT21 is a lot more sure footed up front than the D606. D606 rear and MT21 front is a good combo. If you dont need DOT, check out a D952 rear. I ran one last year and it did very well in the dirt.

Thanks guys,
I'm just wondering how well they do back east? It's wet, with black goo smattered on baby head rocks and slick roots.
For woods, we all run MT16's out back and the Bridgestone M59 up front.
I think I'd chew through an MT16 pretty quick as a DS tire though.
Maybe I should go back to the cheap old Cheng Shin C755 (MT16 copy)

Time to consult the oracle(s)...

Recently got a bit of a fixer upper which runs pretty well. The only issue of note is a bit of a weak idle. About every 5 seconds it will skip a beat. The bike hasn't stalled out on me, but it's not exactly confidence inspiring when sitting at a red light at a busy intersection. The bike will still skip a beat at slow speeds (say until 20% throttle). The bike runs smoothly at speed.

I'm guessing this is a fuel delivery issue. The bike has been desmogged, desnorkeled, uni filter, crappy cobra exhaust, and appeared to have Dave's mods. Opened up the carb and found the needle was not shimmed, slide not drilled, #50 pilot jet, #152 main jet. Hmmm...

So would the carb settings possibly explain my idle condition (pilot jet too lean)? Is it recommended I complete Daves Mods and go w/ a 52 (or 55) pilot and a 155 main? (note: at sea level)

I'm not trying to wring all potential power out of the engine. I'd much prefer a responsive and well running bike. My only complaint is just the idle isn't as solid as it should be. (Throttle response is good, power good, currently no flat spots...)

Thanks for the tips!

I think you'll find a carb vacuum line or intake leak.
