This is one of the best mods you can do to an XR. Once you get the jetting dialed in it will be a 1 kick affair to start your bike hot or cold.
Yeah, mine starts fine now. It just won't idle properly. I tried the mixture screw and idle screw, but there is a leak so it won't hold proper vacuum.

We took the kids up in the mountains to play in the snow in July on Saturday!



The little one fell asleep on the XR on the way back down the mountain. I swear that kid will fall asleep anywhere!

Hard starting XR400

http://www.justxr.com/jaw/stator.html

A while back there was some discussion on poor XR4 starting being attributed to the pulser in the stator and $200 to Ricky Stator is a fix. Seems that closing down the gap may work also. This article was interesting in that the resistance of the XR600 pulser should be 230 to 320 ohms. The XR400 manual gives voltages...not resistances....SOOOOO...question is, is the pulser resistance of a GOOD STARTING XR400 the 230 to 250 that was accomplished in the XR600 story?....if so...and I find the resistance on mine is on the high side, my guilt in spending $200 on a 18 year old XR400 EVAPORATES!!

DOC: Thanks but no thanks. That sumbitch really messed up my right foot's arch late last fall when it tried real hard to strand my ass in the woods in a snow storm....no frikkin thanks at all for fixing it's swing arm bolt etc. Bought something with electric start...yeah, nice, starts good....but it ain't a pimple on the ass of my 18 year old XR4....so I'm gonna take a swing at fixing the starting...again....

I had a Yamaha Secca 650 Turbo, everyone thought I was nuts, did they you? It sure was an esoteric bike. Even in it's day.

Yup...bought it as a 2 year old leftover. With the boost trick in place, it was a real arm stretcher, but NOONE had a clue what a seca turbo was. Did a high speed track day on it...found out how stupid fast it was (how slow I was)...and I parked it. 25 years later sold it at a decent price to a restorer...it now is pristeen in a collection somewhere.

Mine had the "Yamaha Power Up Kit " too. It was fast, after a bit of turbo lag, and I also tried to go fast on it till it tried to do a Bull Rider imitation and tried to kill me a few times. Then I started to ride it as it should be ridden, as in like a old world street bike. I only had it about a year. It wasn't really mine in a sence. I had it as a shop bike from the Yamaha dealer I worked for the she just let me have it for like a year or so.

Son looks relatively tall, that usually means big feet. I am size 12 and can't keep my feet out of the shifter when hustling, do y'all have the same problem? Solution? Thanks.
