Easy fix! do a FULL rebuild on the engine, replace every bearing, seal and bushing. Install a Vapor, and then start a 000000

Shibby is right, just enjoy the thing until parts start failing, replace, and return to enjoying it.

If you are really that worried, you could always just pull the head, check the valves and seats, inspect cam and upper valve train wear, pull the jug off, and check for small and large end bearing wear, cylinder wear. This is obviously not a total R&R job, but its also mostly free and will give you a very good idea of the condition your engine is in.

In the meantime, do all of the maintenance, lube points, and clean the oil screens.

Large Diameter Header & Exhaust canister = after market FULL exhaust, from the head to the tip. This could also be a T4, since you can get just the slip on or the full exhaust.

Question Swingarm slap?


Let me start by stating I did my google search, as not to get my ass chewed by Garthe.I spent a good part of Sunday doing some year-end maintenance, valves,oil change,cable lube and rear shock adjustment.The reason for the shock work is I've been noticing a knocking coming from that area under acceleration on rough terrain, in the pegs. 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

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.

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.

As long as it runs good just ride it and enjoy Sometimes the more you worry the more issues you'll have...kinda like carma I think
And don't let the problems in these threads freak you out

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
