[quote=DOSCERVASAS]Spoolie,

The guy I got my FCR41 from is out, all he has is a FCR36

I even used his single cable, but may go back to push/pull two cable set up not sure yet.

The stock tank was a pain to put back on, the 6.3 tank has much harder plastic, so I think it will be a big pain in the ass. I didn't even try to put mine on yet, two reasons, it was getting cold, and I had 4 rum and cokes by then, but I will tell you how it goes when I get it on the bike.[/quote

Great thanks for the info DOS, hopping to find fcr41 maybe soon just would like to know how much work you got into, single cable? do you not like it or just want to give it a while? Rum and Coke always helps a project!

bump,
If you do the jig,let me know what it would take for you to make another one.

BTW, even recent Tucker Rocky catalogues show the BD HRC insert, but in calls to BD, they say they have had no stock for couple of years. I am sure there are folks out there with the BD insert who aren't using it and do not realize how valuable the item is ....they could sell it for what they paid for it - $150! No wearing parts except the o-rings which are cheap to replace.
Laters,

Single cable

spoolie,

single cable is little work, you have to re-route throttle cable anyway, because the FCR cables contect on right side, stock contect on left side.

I am giving it a little time, because it is 22 degrees here right now, I have only made mad dashes up to the store and back, so do not know how I will like single cable on the trails.

I will keep an eye out for a used FCR, I paid $250 for mine.

You want to borrow a set of tools to make a set of tools? That seems like a waste of time, but I've got a set that I can send you if you promise to return them. Send me a PM with your address.

Just so you have it in writing,

I finally got my new 07 XR650R that I picked up last September plated and insured. The bike isn't completely street legal yet- I still need to add a two-way headlight, brake light and horn but I did take it for it's maiden pavement ride yesterday and am quite happy with it stock and can't wait to see how she is uncorked.

I bought a XR650L last year and it quickly turned into one of my favorite all time motorcycles. I was looking late this summer for a more serious dirt version of the L and drove to Denver to check out a X-Challenge a shop had in stock. On the way home I stopped at a multi-line dealer just to see what they had and saw this left over 07 XRR on the floor.

Im looking at a BRP with 20,000 km's on it with a heap of extras.

What sort of mileage do the engines get before the camchain, piston, crank etc need replacing.

Whats the deal with the right foot peg, I can see from the pics it has one bolt replaced already.

Thanks

It depends how it was ridden. Checking the external condition of the chassis & engine is a good start.
Ask the owner what sort of riding was done it.
Highway, commuting, touring ? 20,000km is nothing.

Tight tracks in the mountains, single track, desert ? I'd say it could need a rebuild soon, by the 30,000km mark.

It would mostly only need a top end freshen up. Piston & rings, valves & seals.
You can check the condition of the engine usually by just test riding it. see if it burns any oil by seeing the smoke as you accelerate. have a mate watch as you ride off. Any funny noises from the bottom end will be evident as well.

That's the famous right footpeg fix dude.
So the right footpeg doesn't shear of and catapault the rider into a world of hurt.

Clutch Bushing Upgrade

I decided to cut into my pig today and see if my 02 needed the clutch bushing (a.k.a. outer guide) replaced.
While I was in there I took a few photos for those interested.

If your wondering if it needed it...Read on.


I didn't drain the oil but would recommend it...It would've been nice to see what kind of crud is in the bottom of the case.


Here's a quick rundown of what worked for me...As always attempt at your own risk.

* I simply followed the service manual directions for removal and assembly.
* When removing the lock nut (pg 10-3) we used an air gun to rattle it loose. I didn't want to buy the clutch holder tool.
* To tighten the lock nut to spec...We put the bike in 5th gear, pressed the rear brake as well as holding the tire from slipping..."Click" no prob.

This swap job is truly easy and quick for anyone's skill level.

Oh ...Almost forgot...Turns out mine had the upgraded piece.

Stalling

I put the FCR on and it runs great, but if I give it a quick blip on the throttle sometimes it stalls.


Does this mean the needle is too rich?

Or is the pilot too rich?
