My XRR and I went riding in the woods this week. Lots of sand and whoops. Its geared a little tall for it right now but it did fine. I gotta admit I haven't ridden it much lately but I'm in love again!

I think my 250x is an 2006, and it don't match for shit.

Way cheaper than a 6sp gearbox, but I hear you. If you ever get a chance to try one, you should. It is the best thing I've ever bought for a bike. I haven't ridden a dirt bike without one for 10 years now.

I put one in my BRP last summer too. I agree it is great for the single track, but I was thinking of taking it out because I don't really care for it on the highway.

It seams like i could get it adjust well for the slow tight stuff or for highway driving but had to keep adjusting depending on the riding. Then again, maybe I should replace the rest of my clutch and try the Rekluse with a fresh setup instead of an abused and worn clutch. Then maybe it will work well in all conditions without constant adjusting.

If it is an axle that you are looking for, seems the same as spindle, I have one or two laying around. I'll look into what it would cost send it to you in Ireland if you like.
By the way the CR/CRF axle is a different axle. I never found one that would work in it's place.

Adam
any luck with front axle?

If this tire doesn't deliver, I'll do my best to wear it out and buy a D606. It worked really well on just about everything, although once it got worn down past halfway it really showed, wheelie attempts result in spinning out on dirt. Not enough Knob.

WE can't have that!
I have been using the AC10 $74 for years now it lasts like the 606 but works better for me and is DOT. longer lasting look to d908$204 on sale, tkc 80 $100+, Heidenau K60 Scout $190 they all last but it costs. B

I've seen where a lot of people have said that. I still ride like I'm on a 2 stroke sometimes, I don't know if I'd like a rekluse. There's really no need to ride the pig like that, but if I see the right turn I still pin it and feather the clutch a bit.

Something about feeling a bike turn like that still gets me excited, even if I have to let off as soon as I go straight. It's like seeing a jump and having to hit it, even though there's a turn right past it that you'll be braking for. Hard to resist.


All typos and misspellings blamed on my phone.

Perhaps someone could help me. I'm pretty new to the BRP and am having a carb issue. I have a Mikuni TM40 fitted and the bike starts easy enough. It will fire up but as soon as its warm, it begins to flame out. It randomly stalls. It pops and stutters before doing so and sometimes it can be prevented by getting on the gas. After the bike has been running for more than say 10-15 minutes, this condition goes away. Throttle response is sharp and there are no flat spots so it seems like the jetting is spot on. I've also adjusted the idle up with no resolve. Odd, no?

Thanks for any insight.

Cheers,

Jason

Are you talking about the L model? This is the R thread and we use radiators, not oil coolers.

I took my 2000 XRR out for a brief ride the other day and the steering resisted turning.

*sigh*

Guess it's time to switch out the steering stem bearings. I might as well switch out the fork seals and fork oil while I have the forks off. Good times.

Maybe a xr600? Why would I pay for a big bore kit to lose cc's?
