Usually a hairline crack appears in the bottom of the groove cut with the grinder.
At this point it can usually be driven off with a punch as the tension has been removed. JM-2008
I see I'm not the only one doing these things this way
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?

Digga,
so true, shite happens too quick, better goggle up.
And, where's me tank-foties???

Poppy,
actually that depends on the quality of the screwdriver, but then again they ain't a chisel. Chris, a single sharp rap is all you need, and the chisel being sharp really makes a diff

Sean,
thinking pink hmm? You're pining for wood again

Hey BuRPsa, once diggler snapped the plastic handle off and it shot across the shed it worked much better

If I wasn't there watching sparks hit him in the face I would agree sean-o, wouldn't put it past him to give pinkeye to himself though.

PUT ON SOME SAFETY GLASSES
Digga
Will remember to include use of glasses next time
Occasionally pieces of the race may snap off and they move at astronomical speed
Had a trip to the eye and ear hospital to have grinding grit removed 40 years ago (no glasses)
Every time I have an eye check I hear the same words -'there's some rust on the surface here!'
Getting reminded of my mistakes after all this time, glad it didn't cause sight damage - glasses cheap insurance

Angle of the chisel makes a big difference
The process needs to wedge open the groove and split the race (for those who aren't sure).
May need to grind the chisel to suit

You probably already have the bearing off by now I hope?
the die-grinder method is great if you have no access to a press the best way for me with access to a press, is Heat the lower tripple with a heat gun till near 200,deg. then press out the stem- and off comes the bearing.
re install stem while hot.

In all seriousness, the bike has been run as a supermoto for a long while, and I just ran 6000miles on it, across country. Wanted to do a con-rod and the countershaft as well (from the supermoto days)

Better safe than sorry. Didn't want to be stuck down there....forever.

Ya a like new to me rebuilt 650 is a real confidence booster. Feeling the reliability is improved over the stock bike.
Waiting for that adventure opportunity to happen.

Got near 1000 miles on the rebuild now and it has the MoJo
Here it is before battle testing

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!

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?
