Does anyone know if there is a throttle tube sleeve with an aggressive lobe?
Ive found ones like motion pro with stock lobes but i want aggressive ones/quicker snappier acceleration to suit my xrr motard setup.

cheers

Heat shield?

It seems like people are very positive about the Giant Loop Mojavi bags. I was wondering if any of you feel that it is necessary to use their heat shield in order to keep the right side plastic from being damaged by leaning too closely or against the stock muffler.

I don't know about the stock muffler, but I didn't need one with an aftermarket one (Moriwaki one trip, FMF Ti second trip). I mounted the bags so they were far enough forward to no put a lot of pressure on the sidepanels.

Got a T4 and use the shield.
More important I think, you get this shield with the GL bags... why not use it?
It fits well and does the job, and mine sits invisible under the panel.

i used a link of chain and a hose clamp on the frame, and attatched the bags to the chain link on the xrr. i use the same setup on the crf. looks kinda rigged, but it works to keep the nylon strap away from the heat of the exhaust.

Once again, 32,000 KM's of strapping that strap around the frame and not a single issue. Everything from Moab, Baja, Mexico, Latin America, and back the CDT (plus traffic in your home town with 44 degree heat (celcius)).

Not an issue. That's also with the thinner, ultra hot Powerbomb header and FMF Powercore 4 pipe.

Combine that with my buddies XRR with 8000 KM's of doing this you have 40,000 KM's of trouble free operation.

Here's what Giant Loop has to say....

Hi Matt,

The larger saddlebags and panniers include Hot Springs Heat Shields, but the MoJavi Saddlebag does not. It is available as an accessory upgrade.

Do you need it? We think it's cheap insurance against destroying your side panels and/or saddlebag. Although your mighty XR has more substantial plastics than most current production bikes, the concerns are: the weight of gear sagging the side panel into the exhaust; and in the event of a tip-over, the bag/side panel being pressed into direct contact with the exhaust.

Would you mind sharing this info with our fellow XR650R riders?

Thanks for riding Giant Loop,
Harold

G2. You can tune them by using different cams to get whatever you want, from mild to violent. Had one on my SM XRR with an FCR and it was holy-shit-hold-on.

I'd suggest it.

My side panel is damaged from not using it. Not a huge deal because mine isn't a garage queen, but in hind site I would have put it on.

Rear shock: rebuild or replace?

The guys who work on my bikes were being generous in saying the rear shock on my '06 "could use a little help". It's pretty much shot.

From the sound of it, rebuilding isn't that much cheaper than replacing it when you factor in parts and labor.

What's the general consensus? Rebuild, replace with stock, replace with aftermarket?

In this case it's a fat old guy who let's it rip/does some serious single track every once in a while, but mostly just riding on dirt roads and ATV trails. I'm more interested in good performance/good feedback than cushy/comfy. I don't need fancy, I do want low maintenance.

I searched the thread and the only things I found were references to the Bornyack site and the file on the rear shock doesn't seem to be available now :(

Any thoughts/links/experiences/disabusing appreciated.

Thanks for the info.
I went on theyre site to have a look and perhaps order but they have no listing for a honda xr650r.
They have the G2 stock throttle with stock cam and in the add says you are able to buy optional cam lobes, and when you try to add a optional cam it doesnt list the xrr in there, only crf's.

The G2 quick turn throttle doesnt list the xrr at all.

So im confused at how you got yours working? did you maybe buy a honda crf450r/x model and modify it or bought the G2 stock throttle tube to suit xrr and then seperatly bought a cam to suit crf's?or how? otherwise if a crf model fitted they would surely have the xrr in the list!

cheers

I'd have PC or some place good rebuild it and re-valve/spring to suit your needs. It'll be mechanically about as good as new and functionally much better. Stock shock valving while tolerable isn't great.
