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.

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?

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.

These bolts broke off, drilled them and inserted Wurth inserts.

I kinda like this rack.But i'm kinda partial to the stuff i build. It is hell for stout! It has threaded inserts for fuel can mounts and all kinds of slots for bungees etc.

No C,

that's Tau, a hooligan of note, his tank a Safari which looks close enough. But Beserker (organiser) & me (and maybe others here?) were there too, have a look here http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/inde...topic=119585.0
Yeah, mostly Afrikaans comments but then this is a local forum. Pics are universal though, should give an idea about the stunning landscape we were in. This is in the Cederberg mountains and Tankwa Karoo, quite close to Cape Town... nudge nudge.
I started off with a nigh-on new Maxxis Deset IT rear, the chicken strips on the side still on as the previous Botswana-sand trip left them 'new'. They have chuncked quite a bit, are squarish now and are less than half, the result of rocky terrain & chasing certain hooligans in the group
During the ride I remembered briefly that awful 'dual sport' front tyre I had on during our ride. Remind me to never ever ride with such a slick again please, proper front grip rules!

Tau,

as you've seen I had the same rack on, plus GL Coyote. This rack spreads the bag in a good way so as to keep it away from the exhaust, a must as I burnt a hole in it when riding with Crypto (on a 450EXR) around Nevada.
Mind though, you'll have to thread the GL's rear metal clamps through the rack itself so that they hook on the side-rails (as the straps are too short for reaching the fender) but then it sits like a glove - plus, in this way the forces are spread nicely over the entire subframe.
With your new inserts now in I'd fix (weld up) that rack and use it, however I'd put spacers in there where they are needed (like mine has, forgot to show you. PM me? I'll send some pics) so as to minimize the bending stresses by merely screwing it on the bike (making the fit tailormade instead of just yanking the bolts hence bending it).
If you don't like this idea then ManRacks (a member here) makes racks, I'm sure he can help you.
