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.

In your experience, where did you find best results with main jet: 1 or 2 size larger? Tnks
Start with one, then try two.

Find a nice wide open section, mark off flags (or land marks) on the side of the road, maybe 100 yrds apart, come through first session at speed, roll on full throttle, measure the time it takes to get to a certain speed, say 65 or 70 mph. Which ever jet gets you there with the least amount of time, and cleanly, is your best option.

If you spend a lot of time at the top end of your throttle, maybe jet one size fatter than you think to keep it cooler.

I did a few quick searches, but I could not find the info I was looking for.

Someone, maybe sudco, has a chart that breaks down jet size vs diameter. I just could not find it.

If I stumble across it, I'll post it up later.

Jet size/100 = diameter...a 120 jet is 1.20mm in diameter, 80 jet is 0.80mm, etc


This is good information if you ever decide to drill out your jets (now wait as 25 people chime in to tell you what a bad idea that is). Divide by 25.4 if you need your diameter in inches.

I ran either a d606 or a IT desert front. I loved the IT desert rear. I always just rode knobbies in the desert but I didn't spend much time on asphalt. Something like 70/30. Hell I took dirt roads to class, the grocery store or the bar even.

In alabama I have always used supermoto rims as I don't know where the offroad is.

Are you asking what jets we run?

If so, here is where i'm at now...

Pilot - 27.5
Pilot Air jet - 1.2
Jet Needle - 9DJY1
Needle Jet - Y4 (but moving to a Y6 this weekend to test)
Clip - 2.5 (washer under, clip in pos 3)
Main - 140

Currently my pumper is disabled for tuning reasons.

I'm at 1850 ft, ~75 deg F, 30-50% humidity

Starts and idles great (like beyond great) small stumble off idle (which pumper will fix) light surging 1/4-1/2 throttle, very nice and clean 1/2 to 1/1 (pretty happy up top)
