I just bought one of those fans from some random online vendor due to the eBay guy has not been around for ages. I've been looking for months but he has not had any for sale. I ended up paying 56 shipped, which was not that bad. At least I'll have it for this season.

I'll be making a bracket out of some sheet alum as well.

I replaced the linkage bushings and bearings along with heavier shock spring (11.5kgm- fat ass) and shock bushings about 8 months ago. Seems to be some vertical slop at the swing arm pivot point when on a stand with wheel off the ground, The shock has about 130lbs of charge by my guage and is a bit soft still. Just did a 500 mile Utah/Nevada Pony Express trip and some Moab single track two weeks ago with no noticable issues other than the knocking. Is a bit of play normal? Any advice would be great. Thanks, Jim
Nope, not normal. Take your swingarm off and check your swingarm piviot bearings. I'd bet you a beer they are dust. A big hammer, a torch and some new bearings will fix it right up.

What type of information would you like to know? There are lot of people here that use the HS/TM 40 carb.

I am currently working through the jetting process with mine. I have some jets showing up next week to continue to fine tune it.

For example: What is the nominal diameter of the individual jets in the carburetor in mm? Most need dimensions Main jet and Pilot jet

Regarding Main Jet, Gary says: " Use a Main Jet one to two size larger when your side panel is cutout".

I'm using XRonly side panel cut out.

In your experience, where did you find best results with main jet: 1 or 2 size larger? Tnks

Mine was a top shock bearing failure, but since you did those its time for the swing arm. I was able to find a brake multitool, looks like a cube with different holes and tits for brake cylinders/pistons. It worked on my swing arm castle nuts good enough.

I went with the KTM fan kit for $70 because I like the fan shroud.






Hinson basket for me too, not sure if the others are hard anodized, but make sure they are if you try another brand.

A couple of questions.....

Who makes some taller bars for and XR?
I'm 6'3 and I need some taller bars.

Also what is a good front tire?

I ride it on the street some to get to the dirt. Do y'all just ride regulars knobbiest? I have a DOT legal Perelli on the front that sucks off road. Does LE check the tires? They don't here.


I like those graphics.
