XR650R Starts easy again!

Gunslinger, I tapped the side of the Eddy a few times gave it a kick and it started right up.

Thanks,
Mine sticks overnight...I haven't had teh time to take the bowl off and polish the needle and check for barbs but so every morning I have to tap the bowl. You can usally just pull the float needle and clean it out with solvent and polish it.

For me in the US...I cant use less than 93 octane with 11:1, I imagine if you went 12:1 you may have to use race fuel...but in Europe your high octane fuel may be stronger.

New XRR owner here. I picked up one from a friend that while he loved it, it was too tall for him. I've gone for a few trips on it, the damn this is a hoot to ride. and with it plated I'll be pretty much taking it every where I can.

Me and my XRR on our first outing:

Installed the Rekluse auto clutch in the pig today and it rocks! I knew it would, as I've had one in my CRF450 for over 6 years. It makes single track so much easier with the 15/47 gearing. It does take some practice to be smooth shifting on pavement, but it is no problem. No more clutch lever, but still does 4th gear wheelies.

Valve clearances

Hi Guy's

I set my valves on the xrr to
IN: 0.15 +- 0.02 mm (0.006 +- 0.001 in)
EX: 0.20 +- 0.02 mm (0.008 +- 0.001 in)

Started ok but was very rattly, so I re set them to 0.05 & 0.15
The moter is quiet again. Will this effect anything

Dave

a standard rule..

At least for me. If I can't hear them, they're too tight. It's my indicator that they need to be adjusted, never want to burn one......FWIW

Sweet Pete, I'll be interested in how it holds up for you.

Was it cold for the second adj? If so and the cam position was correct, I wouldn't worry about it. Checking valve lash is a developed feel, your .006" might be = to their .007". If you're going to keep up with the adjustments (check 'em periodically) you'll be fine, there's plenty of XRRs out there with serious time between addustments. I chg the oil every 3 rides and the valve adj and oil filter every 6 (my rides are usally about 100 to 160 miles). I know that's pretty frequent but I got the time and like the piece of mind of knowing everything is correct before I head 60 or 70 miles out into the boonies.

To add to Ridefreak...Since Feel varies for everyone on what is acceptable "drag" on a feeler gauge and since there is a range it gives I started to try once step outside of it (so if its .15mm with a .02mm I try a .18mm) if it fits I redo it. now since my feel is getting better I use the max like .17 and if it doesn't fit it should be spot on.

Noisey valves are happy valves. better to error on the side of loose than tight. but just play with it and you'll get it...and remember to adjust after warm

Steering Stabilizer

Looking for advise on adding a stabilizer to my BRP.

Right now it is stock with a 7/8 bar.

GPR or Scott's? Fat Bar or 7/8?

I am 6' 1" and find the stock set up quite low for standing for long periods of time, so I would also like to raise the bars up.

Is the Scotts XR650 setup the only one to use since you can still get to your dipstick? Looks like a clean set up, and the fat bar would clear up some room in the cockpit.

Any advise / summary would be appriciated.

Cheers
