On the intake where the carb goes in I noticed a small threaded hole (with a bolt in it, looks OEM too). Looks perfect for a hot start. Thoughts? It looks pretty small but otherwise perfect. EDIT: it's probably too small. Damn it. Maybe I'll drill it out...or get an FCR, lol.

Afternoon gentlemen. I was wondering if anyone's heard of putting YZ tank/seat/fairings on an XR650R (for SM purposes) instead of going that italia 450$ route. I saw a brief mention of it on SMJ (old thread) but no elaboration. Is this possible without major modifications (ie; heat gun and a 4 leaf clover)?

One more thing worth mentioning, some countries got a small spigot installed on the trailing edge of the lower triple clamp which slots into a small indent on the bottom of the stem/shaft. You have to remove this before you can press the shaft out as mentioned by others above.

Oh and if anyone knows how to remove the spigot please let me know, cause I was never successful in my attempts!

Chris, the red bit is tricky, and only clumsy/lazy/bookkeper types don't get it right.
Did I ever tell you I'm sometimes a clumsy lazy bookkeper?
I took it to my mate Jeremy at PRD as I have limited tools - He chopped it off with a cutting disc without damaging the stem - cost me a McDonalds lunch.

I also wanted to remove the 2 plates on the inside of the swingarm that have star screws locktite'd in - He welded m6 bolts to these and had them out in no time.

hi guys,
i just bought a 2005 xrr that i am picking next week.
i want to be able to get 200 to 250km range of dual sport riding (vancouver island so mostly fast logging roads.) The bike just has the stk tank. Should i be looking at getting the big 6+ gal tank or would a 4.3 gal do. I am not to worried about size and weight, i wont be doing much tight or single track riding.
any input would be helpful
also in looking at the wolf man rollie bag saddle bag system has anyone tried this set-up on a xrr

Should I Locktite the machine screws into the swingarm with low grade Locktite when I replace them?

I bought my bike with a 4.6 gal (18l) Clarke. Its nice and narrow and feels like a stock bike. I needed 400km range and bought the 6gal Acerbis.

1st impressions were that it was pretty big and very noticeable when full and riding in sand. You can always run it half for the tougher trails and then fill it up when you hit the long road.

I think the smaller tank would do, but I prefer to have the range when I need it.

Unless you're running some thirsty mods, 18 km/lt is a reasonable expectation. About what I get. You should be just fine with the med sized tank. I get 320km on my Clarke 4.3gal

I picked up a 6.3 gallon a while back and have no complaints. Nice to have the extra capacity if you need

I was wondering about the rollie too. It looks pretty trick.
I am not real good with numbers, let alone metric, but I believe you should be able to get around 125 miles on the 4.3, multiplying 30 mpg times 4.3. I guess it depends how dependent you want to be on stations. (and throttle). It seems everybody loves their A/M tank here, no matter what the size or brand.
Have fun, I just picked up an 01 and the 4.3 should be here any day.

Is that a Heidenau K60 on the rear? What size?

Last weekend out past Conconully. Had a great trip.





But all four of us would not fit on the XRR. Had to pile on the 1976 XL250 4up.

ya i thought the rollie bag set-up would work pretty good, a little $$$ to get set-up but once you have the mount and a few bags you just take what you need for the day!!! plus there waterproof
