The reason for bigger radiators is better cooling. I've Just added a fan and seems to work fine for me, temp. between 180-200F with outside temp. between 70 to 95F.



I do regular oil change (no more than 1000km) and refrigeration liquid every year (mostly to avoid sand deposits and premature wate pump failer.

I do every other. It never seems to have much on it except right after a rebuild.

I was going to wait until I received the new countershaft seal before I pulled the old one, but I thought I'd get it done in case I had problems...there were none, popped out easy!


All ready for the new seal!

My makeshift workshop...

Thanks for the advice guys!

I had them fitted here in Queensland temperatures and didn't notice a difference to stock. Personally I wouldn't buy Devol guards ever again, they are not at all designed to protect impact from a fall. They are only good for stopping flying debris from hitting the front of the rads, but then the OEM ones can do that too....

UniBikers are far better.

Yes, it's a CRFX. Unfortunately I don't know much about it off hand, I just bought the bike but I have seen the thread that explains how to do it somewhere. I'm not home right now, but will look for the thread and post a link...

I have a few more photos on the XR650Rforum.com site (Icelander-XR650R there). Look in Introduce Yourself and Post Photos threads. I can post a few here tomorrow too if you like.

Filter cleaning?

[QUOTE=babuja;21085232]hy guys,

just found this image in the net. Could found what this part is? Some kind of oil filter?



Don't think cleaning the filter will help much there!

It's a banjo bolt and there is a screen there above it (IIRC). You can open it up and clean it, but usually it's clean.

That's pretty normal with these carbs. You have to do hard rolls on or it bogs. The best way to fix it is to by a TM40 pumper carb kit.

Yeah, I guess you're right! My AT had no such issues after a clutch change

You should have had a flat spring seat 1st, then the judder spring. The judder spring is the one on an angle. It should be touching the spring seat on the bottom and leaning out toward you at the top, then you install the skinny clutch plate, then a steel. The steels have 2 different sides, one a flat square egde type, the other side will have like a radius edge. These can go either way, but install them all the same way. I soak my clutch plates in oil before installing.

So after you put the skinny plate in, then a steel, then a normal clutch plate, steel , clutch plate , steel etc etc. You should have 6 normal plates , 6 steels, 1 skinney plate ,1 judder spring and 1 flat spring seat.
Thanks, poppy! Yeah, I went totally by the book, in the order that you mention. I did try to sort the steel plates as you describe, but by then, they were all greased up, so could have placed one the other way. Though I'm sure this would not cause it to slip?

Could it be the wrong plates? The previous owner sold them with the bike, but since the skinny plate was missing, perhaps they're not the right ones, and have a different thickness?

I have good slack in the lever, so it's not a problem there.

There doesn't seem to be any slip when letting go of the clutch in 1st gear, by the way.
