I'm having a hard time picturing a 6'4" dude wearing a thong with a blown sandal trying to kickstart an XR650R.
Maybe that is a good thing!!!

MRI shows a torn rotator cuff, if surgery is needed I will be unable to ride for 4-5 months.
Figures, I just bought the wife a bike and was teaching her to ride.

I will button it up tonight and will go on a test ride this weekend.

Pretty much the machine shop guy was like "YUP this thing really was warped."

I am glad I just took it to a machine shop in the end.

Shibby!, I have no idea how it got warped. My only thought could be heat related (really hot and then exposed to water?) or just a bum cover from the factory. The history of the bike is a mystery since I bought it used. It didnt leak at all until I took the cover off for the first time.

I have kicked over the xr650r in sandals too.

I cant wait to ride it on the street!

The old timer at the machine shop had a cali plated 2 stroke dirt bike. I was jealous.

Hey guys today i was out riding some canyons and i noticed oil had started to leak out of the air filter cover , I know its a common issue when people over fill the oil . So im hoping it was just the breather tube puking out excess oil. I'm going to change my oil and be very careful to not go over 1.7qts, this is the correct way of going about things when this happens right ? So basically its really no big deal? Please excuse my apparent retardation I'm just worried because if it was the crankcase breather hose getting rid of the excess why does my oil show very low in the sight tube even after heating it up , shouldnt it have just gone back to the 1.7qts ? I should mention that the countershaft seal does not seem to be leaking but i will be replacing it anyways

Why replace your counter shaft seal if nothing is wrong with it?


Have you confirmed it's not filter oil? Sometimes if you use a lot it can drip a bit.

If it's a lot of oil, then it could have been overfilled but shouldn't have been going past your full mark. Might also be bad rings pressurizing your crank and blowing it out.

A few variables to consider. Pictures would help.

Try topping your oil up again and see if it does it twice. As you mentioned, make sure you measure the oil level properly.

Your Multi compared to XRR

Good question, and I guess its relative. Coming off a Multistrada, an XRR is going to vibrate more, have virtually no wind protection, and not have the same stability at 85 plus MPH. I think for 200-300 miles you can do quite well, with breaks every 100 miles or so. But, the lack of wind protection, wind noise and some vibes will wear on you more. I find a sweet spot at 65-70 MPH on pavement, with stock gearing.

Plus one to what folks said about big tank, after market tank, and suspension work. I am just fine with a Baja Designs light kit so far.

If you want more smoothness, less maintenance, e-start, ability to run e-vest, and carrying capacity, go for an L.

If you want rip-your-arms out tourque, plush eat-it-up suspension, and the Baja history go for the R. In my book the R is just tons of fun and has a unique history that the L lacks.

Doh' I spoke too soon.

After putting it back together its really, really hard to kick over. Like stand on the kick starter with the decomp in and it wont move hard. (yes it's in neutral)

I thought maybe too much was milled from the crank case cover and now the oil filter cover and oil pump were rubbing. I loosened the bolts and it become 10x easier to kick. Possible clearance issue now with the oil pump and cover? Air bubbles making the pump harder to operate?

Gave up for the night, lol.

EDIT: Does the oil pump need priming? Saw nothing in the FSM suggesting it.
