I'd kinda assume its one of those items where you inspect and replace every top end?
XRGene, from the XR Mailing list, has raced and rebuilt many BRP motors. His suggestion was to replace the cam chain and sprockets every other top-end rebuild. I've rebuilt my my top end once, replacing valves and rings that go around.

To qualify this however, I will also say that I haven't heard of any cam chains breaking or wearing so bad as to cause issues.

Yup! Same ones I have on mine. (except I have a straight through one). Run them on all my bikes. I've been stopped numerous times because somebody had something in their carb from fuel contamination (grass seed, grit, whatever).

They are small and light. Bring a spare. If no spare, reverse the valve, blow or allow gas to flow through it, and install it the correct way again. It'll get you home.


Yes, new Desert IT's are can be slightly squirmy when new. Let the rubber shine wear off, the rubber to stiffen up a bit and the knobs to wear down a little and itll grip like a street tire (within reason).

I find the biggest thing you give up with knobbies is braking traction in the rear. Otherwise corners, etc are no issue. Under hard braking and forward weight transfer they tend to lock up.

I have installed fuel filter on every bike i have ever owned , it keeps the carbs clean , it was one of the first items installed to the XR after i got it . Go for the bigger sized 5/16" 8MM ones the small 1/4 filters and hoses are tight fit for the xr ( too much of a stretch for my likeing )

Trx800xx throttle body

Hey Y'all,
I won a Trx800xx throttle body on eBay. It came with the boot from the body to the head. The boot fits but the new one I bought will have to be trimmed down to fit the Xr head. I did not check the length of the Edelbrock carb versus the throttle body to see if I would have to have an adapter from the airbox to the throttle body. Now I just need to put the engine back together after I get the cam guide welded back and ground down. Ill keep y'all informed on how it is coming. I did download the Mobisquirt app for my iPhone. Have fun, Tony

Would one like this be ok? http://www.ebay.com/itm/FUEL-FILTER-...8d96c6&vxp=mtr

Looking for one on the US store. I run the stock tank and fuel line. Will it work or will I need 5/16 tubing? If so what type should I run?

Motion Pro makes really nice easy-bend/no-kink fuel line.
With it, I dont even put clamps on, and just push it on fuel filter
ends.

Yes that will do , but always carry a spare one ( they are cheap and they do get clogget up after some time ).
if you are using the stock tank and carb there is not much space to place the filter , my solution was to get good quality long fuel pipe and create loop just over two inches in size , cut it in the middle and install the filter , ( the stock fuel line is too short ) , i cannot post the picture as this site does not suport this function , and i am not signing to stupid photobucket and similar incredibely slow sites .

Ok sounds great. This is what I was planning on doing. Do you use cheap hose or the expensive motion pro?

There's some info about that bike here in this thread on TT and there are a few links to more pics/info. Believe the owner/builder has posted about it on here.

There was a guy on here that had some trigger rings cut out. This is the one that gets pressed onto the stock flywheel for the MS to get its ignition trigger from. I thinnk I have it saved on my pc if you need it. Keep us posted on this. I have been dying to EFI and turbo my xrr for some time, dying!!

Here is a link for a turbo/efi XRR build:

frame guards

G'day all, just wondering if anyone has seen or knows of any plastic molded frame guards for the xr. We can get aluminium ones, but I would prefer some molded plastic if they were available. Thanks for any assistance.
