speaking of sprockets, I'm moving to a 15t for my TAT trip. Whats everyones opinion on reusing the counter shaft sprocket bolts vs buying new ones every change? What about the lock washer?

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

Cracked rims

[QUOTE=Shibby!;21664951]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.

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.

I flipped my retainer over, since it was worn and I didn't have another; I would like to take this time to blame primary drive also because their stuff sucks.

I like to pull it off a couple times every oil cycle and grease the splines. Never lost a bolt, reused them many times. Those bolts are not doing much, just hanging out really.

Happens all the time with cheap crappy sprockets, it can even strip the shaft until the sprocket just spins on the shaft. The best CS sprocket I've ever used is the Ironman from DirtTricks, tightest best fit on a few bikes now and it doesn't wear out. If you're gonna cheap out on sprockets, do it on the back.

See the few posts imediately leading this one? There's your answer. PRimary drive is one of the primary culprits.

Just bought another XR and this is the countershaft chain was over tight which I don't think helps much.
