If you are planning on using stock throttle cables I'm betting you will need a stock throttle too. The cables thread into the stock throttle housing.

The Kibbles have what looks like a nitride coating and that may wear out eventually causing accelerated wear, but so far they are great. I would recommend them.
This somewhat discredits the poor air filter theory.

I use a stainless screen type filter, 35 micron I am very happy with it. MSR has them for very reasonable pricing, They are reusable and filter well
I also recommend the magnetic drain plugs for the case and down tube, It makes it easy to identify potential problems with some experience.


....


If you run the magnetic drain plugs I believe you can see the wear from the buildup of magnetic particles.
from my not too scientific experience I found 1,500 (2500 Kmi) road miles to be a good point to change Oil at, If I run farther I see an acceleration of particles on the magnets.
I run Rotella T6


I hope you keep your 650r going, I plan on riding mine for a few more years of fun.

KTM Orange??? Really!??

Those are good points. If I did rebuild this engine I would most deifnitely use Kibbles valves. They aren't cheap, but rarely anything good are. I'm at a cross roads of decided to rebuild mine over the next two years, or keep an eye out for another clean one. I think for now I'll wait. Most non-street used ones around here have very little K.

I was hoping to get the magnetic drain bolts, but at the time of my trip they were back-ordered and it would have held up my shipment on other parts. My next bike will have at least one of those in addition to the oil temp stick.

Thanks for bringing that up.

If you have a 6.3 you won't need an extension. The tank provides reasonable access to the TM-40.

Otherwise the above look nice and clean.

Anybody know the answer?
My bike came with an Edelbrock. When I couldn't rebuild it I switched to a TM-40 and found out that the Edelbrock throttle was proprietary. I ended up buying a stock assembly with cables off of Fleabay and it worked fine for my TM-40.

Side Panel Riv-nut size....

Can someone tell me what size Riv-nut I should purchase to replace the one in the sub frame which hold the right side panel on please??

I've got the tool to properly set another, cannot find something that specifies the nut's size/dimension etc.

Thanks

XRR Questions

I'm arriving to the XR650R party a little late, but better late than never




I got it last year & did a few things-BD stator rewind, H4 bulb, fuse panel, GPR stabilizer that came with rebuilt, side panel airbox mod, manrack under fender rear support,it came with a Clarke 4.3 and just swapped that out for a Sahara with the tankerbrace.

Got a couple questions for those in the know-

With the bigger tank, anyone using that tank foam stuff?

How do you try to seal the airbox side panel? Intake is quite a bit lower than my XR400

Chain-don't need one yet but when I do-Rivit or master? If rivit what tool do people like for that?

I got a case saver and a case of the Dumbasses! Can't seem to attach it with what came with it-




Looks like it might work if rear mount bolt and nut were removed and flipped 180 and not use the nut-Is this correct?
Trying to set it up the way I want, was going to do LAB2V with it last year but it didn't work out. Now I'd eventually like to do Baja on it, we'll see.

Lov'in the bike so far.....

I have the IMS 7 gallon tank and see no reason to add the foam.No problem with sloshing at all.It is just something else to break down and plug the filter imo
As for the air box i use a heavy grease to seal around the edge.
I use master links on my XRR's both ADV and super moto. Never had a problem.On my KTM 990 with rivet links i use this tool. It is small and works awesome. http://terra-x.com.au/chainbreaker/
Your right on the case saver
Great bike your gonna love it!

Fartduck, I have the Manrack for my XR650R and very happy with it. I like it because its not too huge, and wont be tempted to overload it. I had mine powder coated red. It comes with a support under it that bolts to the subframe too. Overall very nice and I recommend it.

That chain guide/guard should just bolt to your case. You might have to take the primary off and put them both on the same time with chain in place. Keep in mind some are designed for certain sprockets so a larger then intended sprocket won't allow the guide to fit.

No need for fuel foam. You won't notice it.

I use clip links too. Easier to fix in the field with basic tools. Never had one fail. Rivets are nice, but have their issues too. Just make sure the closed end of the clip is going in the direction of chain. And keep an eye on wearing of the clip.

Cool- Thanks for the answers!

I'm good with the ML, just wondered cause it has riveted on now.
Man I was all twisted up about that case saver, makes sense now. It fits around the CS I have now, the gold double threaded spacer was throwing me off. That's kinda what I thought of the foam too. No foam is good foam!

That gold "double threaded nut" replaces the upper rear motor mount nut on the left side. It is a spacer. You thread it on in place of the stock nut and then the counter sink allen head bolt threads into it. You will have to turn the motor mount bolt around so that the nut is on the left and not the right like it is in your picture. The other 2 bolts thread into the case where the stock "case saver" was.

Yes flip the bolt. The gold part is the new nut. Take off the old case saver.
