Could definitely not turn over my '96 400 by hand, but the compression release is disabled.

Perfectly normal. Super easy bikes to start.

I'm no great frame repair expert but I would check the frame material a little up and if OK do the half tubing thing. The frame tubes rust because of the lack of drain holes. Water will sit at the lowest point making the tubing rust at the bottom, from the inside out. The most common place for rust damage (from what I have seen, but remember I am no expert on this) is maybe 10-15 cm away from the spot in your pic.

Basically a good welder/fabricator can decide what is best to do.

ATV Galaxy have #16 needles but not 17 I got one from their ebay store about a month ago, I'm running an Edelbrock pumper on a XR250R and with all the usual de-restriction mods I am finding the #16 needle spot on.
Hope this helps..

I ransacked our house and found my other needles, the 13e and 17e that originally came with the carb. I guess I can't blame my wife anymore as they were in one of those "special" places I don't lose things... Thanks for the suggestion, I actually bought the carb from that ebay seller many years ago.

I'll change out the needle tomorrow night.

need muffler end

hey guys..any of you have a muffler end/spark arrestor laying around you want to get rid of? It does not need to be perfect and don't really need the spark arrestor..just need the chrome outside cover, like the one pictured here.

If any of you are within driving distance of Spokane, WA, here is a '02 XR4 with 91 miles. I'd love to know what he's asking for it.

my younger brother lives there but he's in africa right now and not bloody likely he'd make it home in time to get it before it sells...

It's either not going anywhere or is already sold.... It's been posted since 1-24-13 and the phone # is missing a digit. I emailed him, we'll see if I hear anything back.

Idaho is 208, so that part is right (CDA is the initials for Coeur d'Alene, ID). Spokane is 509. I'd spend the energy figuring it out if I had an XR's-worth lump of money burning a hole in my pocket! It is probably long gone and the guy tossed the "Post/Edit/Delete" email from CL.
