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?
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.

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


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.

... the XR is the greatest off road motorcycle ever constructed. There's nothing it can't do, hasn't won or will not outperform.

Negative, Honda never made frame guards for the XRR, neither plastic nor any other material.

Pissed Oops(damnit!)

So I changed the front sprocket this morning on my XRR. While I was adjusting the left rear axle adjuster it decided to snap clean off inside the swing arm. Now instead of going a nice dirt ride I'm heading to the parts store to a) try to find a replacement bolt and b) buy a couple of new drill bits and an easy out. Damnit!

I would not easy out they break in this small of a size. then it is really a pain. just drill it out and tap new. if you do try the ez out get a can of that air spray (like for a key board) flip the can up side down and freeze the bolt once you are ready to use the ez out have the hole drilled and ready to go. maybe that will work. if the ez out breaks you will need to chip it out good luck. then drill it out.
