Or if you want you can easily swing down the HID to shoot directly in front of your front tire and run both lights in traffic. Seldom get flashed that way. Flip up the HID some for max off road.

Just curious, what size front wheel is that? What bike is it off of? Why'd you switch from a 21?

Ugh...

I just found a crack in my wheel. It was actually found before my dual sport trip weekend, but as far as I know, it could have been there for 1000's of km's. I went on the trip anyways.

I got a few pics. I'll post them up when I get a chance. The XRR did well and was dropped the least out of all bikes (once). The other bikes were (3) WR450's, (1) 350 bored to 390, and (1) 570.

Way to represent Shibby; most xrr riders are far more advanced than the average, IMHO. We generally have larger gonads too.

I have ridden with cracked rims on MTBs, and it seems like I had a cracked front rim before it was destroyed in a collision with a car. I want to say don't worry about it, but that maybe something that only applies to the peddle bikes.

I was somewhat worrie at first, but then thought to myself, just how long could that have been there? I've changed tires a few times but lets face it I don't look TOO close at it. I've never really thought it would happen to me. We were loading my bike and my buddy said my rim is cracked. I figured he was BS'ing me till I looked!

Riding down the road was wondering do I worry about the slow single / double track hard hits, or the pothole on the gravel road doing 100 km/hr. Eventually I just stoped thinking about it. 670 KMs of rough trail and road and the crack hasn't moved.

I'll be borrowing a buddies front wheel for the Tour of Idaho this summer. Then I'll probably strip this bike down and sell it. Keep an eye out for a good, lightly used XRR in the future. Might want to buy somebody's stock suspension, at least the rear shock. I have another set of forks already.

Pictures maybe tonight. I'm working off 2hrs of sleep so we'll see how far I get. I have to run to the other side of town to pick up my dog here after work.

For me, I just replace what is worn. The bolts can be reused with some locktite (the correct stuff, not the permanent stuff), and the locking ring should be replaced if worn, otherwise I wouldn't worry about it.

Have fun on the ride!

I dumped the XR ind some water the other day.now there is water in the oil.I have since flushed it out 2 times it is all oil now.My question is the H2o getting through the crank case vent tube or likely pushed past the rings on the piston?

You word is as good as anyone when it comes to XRs man. Thanks.

Have you ever flipped the locking ring over?

Oil in water

[QUOTE=1bigrn;21674838]I dumped the XR ind some water the other day.now there is water in the oil.I have since flushed it out 2 times it is all oil now.My question is the H2o getting through the crank case vent tube or likely pushed past the rings on the piston?[


Doubt if much will get past the rings,
That amount of water in the top gets in via a lay down in water if the air box is full it will then likely get into the oil via the crankcase breather.
At the risk of stating the obvious allways gently turn the motor over after a drowning incase the top end (cylinder) has water in it.
Swinging on the kick starter with gusto can cause issues if the cylinder has sufficient water in it.
In my case water ingress via the airbox & crankcase breather was the likely culprit.
Took quite a few oil changes before all the water was removed.
I removed the oil filter cover each time and removed/replaced the filter each time.
All good now, hopefully no damage as it runs fine and does not burn any oil.
Robust motors these 650's

Seen this a couple of times on early model XR650's - usually through the weld where the rim is joined, generally only on one side.
Buddy had his welded up with apparent issues - certainly comes to mind when you have the pig wound against the throttle stop in 5th!

No, but I have replaced it once. I was using Primary Drive sprockets and the primary sprocket isn't very tight on the splined shaft, which wiggles a lot and gears up this ring.

Using JT now (next cheapest option!)

I've never had the lock ring bolts loosen using a dab of blue Permatex.

Actually, I've never had a bolt loosen on this bike. Other than seat bolts. but that could be because of a diff reason.
