That's what I mean, the lighter you are the lighter your bike feels.

I weigh about that too.

Sell that over weight underpowered barco lounger and use the funds for a BRP! start looking around!

I would probably use Three Bond case sealent.

Question for you all: I recently picked up a 2005. It ran fine, but I noticed that on extended rides (like more than 30 minutes) it has trouble idling. I tried adjusting the idle speed to get it up to 1400, and that works, but after about 10 minutes or so if I try and let it idle again it will drop down the rpm's and die. I did this twice until I got the idle up high enough that the rpm's were hanging and would take a while to come back down after letting off the gas.

It always starts right back up, and is easy to start from cold.

I have recently changed the oil, coolant, added a thermostat, adjusted the valves, and jetted according the 650r website according to my elevation and settings.

I was hoping that after all my maintenance it wouldn't be a problem any more, but I went out for my first ride after all that work and it is the same thing. It runs really well when I'm not idling, it just has trouble idling. If I turn the choke on, it revs pretty high but doesn't die. So far this isn't a huge problem because worst case scenario it dies and I just start it again. However, I have to get to the dirt and having it die at a stop-light just doesn't work for me.

Any suggestions where I should look first?

You guys ever have your float level come out of adjustment after a crash?

If the bike goes any more sideways than the stand, it will start overflowing fuel. Its not the needle or needle jet.

What you describe is very much like mine.
If I stop at a set of lights the thing will idle really high and once I clutch out a bit to drag the engine back to normal revs its fine but if I blip the throttle it will hang again. I have checked the throttle cables for correct routing etc and it seems to return quite well when the bike is not running. Even when it is running and you forcefully return the throttle it still hangs high unless you load the engine with some clutch. Very erratic idle is best I could describe it, I'm going to try and see if its the idle mixture screw o'ring seal has gone? Might test it by placing a wad of grease over the mixture screw to get a seal and see if that fixes it, doubt it will though, very weird.
But like you mentioned its fine when riding just the idling issue, never had a bike do what this is doing?

It is not a tractor.

Do not pull your buddy's ktm with your xrr.

Unless you want to replace your wrist pin often.

It is not a tractor, it is a motorcycle, and its built to go rather fast as such.

The oil jet will not spray the small end when it needs it the most.

Kind of like your wife and/or girlfriend.

Set it lower, that is so that it shuts of with less fuel in the bowl. Mine would run on its side with the stock unit.

Get a filter.

What carb?
what jets?

What exactly are you adjusting?

Increase revs with choke sounds like a lean condition. Backfires during engine braking?

Starts easy when cold, sounds like its rich.

Hell if I know. Hanging idle can be valvles.

It seems like mine does this when I get on the lean side.

The slide in the carb is hanging up. Or the linkage in the carb is war out . I change my carb to a tm40 and problem is gone.

Looking for tire options for the xr650r dual sport.

I ride about 50/50, singletrack woods and pavement,

I am currently running a chen shin front and a mt43 rear.

Just about every carb issue that I've ever had has been cured with a disassemble, clean, and reassemble. Blow carb cleaner and compressed air through every port after removing the jets.

It takes less than an hour to do the entire XRR carb from start to finish. I did the carb on my XR100 in 15 min yesterday. After that I did the entire bank of carbs on a non-running FZR400 that I picked up for cheap recently. Supposedly the carbs had been completely disassembled, ultrasonically cleaned, and then reassembled but the guy still couldn't get it to run. I was able to make it run by adding gas directly to the carbs and keeping revs above 5K so I knew I had a carb issue. I stripped them down yesterday, found a pilot screw WAY out of adjustment, and four plugged pilot jets. It runs AWESOME now. I doubled its value with 2 hours of work yesterday.

Just take your time, use a clean, organized work space, and have at it.
