You will need a press for pressing the crank out of the right side case and a specific type of bearing puller to remove the left side crank bearing if doing it yourself. Or just take it to a shop to have them remove it for you. Make sure you get all the bolts from the cases before you try and seperate them, there are a few sneaky ones. You should not need to pry the cases apart. A tap with a nylon/rubber mallet should be enough to break the seal, then they should pull apart with a little effort. I will be taking the crank to someone that has the correct know how and tools to remove the rod and bearing and reassemble. The crank is a 3 piece item and needs to go back together correctly. Hate to do all this and have it come apart for a few because i was to tight to spend a few more dollars.

I am waiting on parts, so cant fill you in on how the reverse goes yet.



Thanks for the reply, I bought the bike with the crank locked at the rod journal & have been putting off tearing it down, had thoughts on selling as is but would love to turn it into a sumo bike.

Day ride in Bastrop TX on XR650R

Enjoying my newly-dual sported XR650R. Getting it dirty and broke in for a ride in Big Bend this Christmas.
Love the tourque of the engine, its addicting. The Race Tech suspension is supple and gobbles up the ground. The bike can go a lot faster than I can safely hang on to it. But, when in doubt, gas it!

Beautiful overlook of the Colorado river, Bastrop Texas.

Anyone have a trashed crank you'd part with? I just need the counterbalance drive gear so the cheaper the better. I have a very nice crank with fresh Falicon rod/supercrank mod...and a warped drive gear.

xrr tanks

Hey guy's,

I have been reading thru this thread and a couple of others on xrr lots of info here, but I have a question concerning after market fuel tanks.

I'm turning my new to me xr650r into a dual sport.

Are they all about equal in terms of quality? What kind of range do you get with a 3 gal tank?

Sorry if this has already been covered.

IMS has had problems with cracked tanks, not sure if it's the XRR models, but I've heard of many cracked IMS tanks.

Plan for 30 mpg's in the dirt, hope for 40.

Get a carb and get 50... =)


30MPG is a safe estimate for a stock carb. Might want to warrant a bit less if deep sand riding just to be safe.

The money I've saved with my carb I think it's over half paid off now =) 50-52 MPG over 22,500 KM on my last trip.

The word from IMS is that the XR tanks, especially the old natural colours were 'not up to standard' and they eventually replaced them a few years ago with a different material that is stronger. I was told this by IMS only recently when questioning why their natural tank used to be a different shade when the Baja guys used them.

I would think if you plan on doing any sort of decent distance you'd want at least the IMS 4.6 gal tank. Its the tank I leave on my bike most of the time. (come to think of it, i have not had the stock tank on there since i put the 4.6 on it) I also have the 6.6 acerbis.

I haven to checked my range with the 4.6 and the new TM40 i put on a few weeks back, but I would get about 160 miles range on the 4.6 and stock carb.

Thanks for the input. Does that TM40 make it easier to start.
