Hey guys, I think I may have a problem. I took the sprocket off just to check the counter shaft and when I spin it it's making a bit of noise that sounds a bit like a messed up bearing. I can't find anything online about xr650r counter shaft bearings going. There is no play in the counter shaft. The video makes it sound worse than it is but it still isn't silent by a long shot. I'll get a better video today in the light so you guys can actually see. I want to know if I should just ride it until it breaks or am I a dummy if I don't open it up now and replace?






Not happy with how it sounds in these videos, def not how it sounds in real life so can someone do me a huge favor and take off your front sprocket and get a video of yourself spinning the counter shaft so I know how other pigs sound. My videos are making it sound like I definitely have a problem when in real life the sound is much less alarming, so hopefully if one of you guys do that for me I can use it as reference .

PR, Are you new to the xr650r? Do you know how to check the oil on this bike? I would drain the oil and see what it looks like to start off. the dude that went by yer house made me gasp at first til you stated it was another bike. that bearing sounds dry to me kinka chunky

No I'm not new here , just got my other name banned because I was being a dick in jo momma . I was about to do an oil change anyways so I'll report back, nothing I do seems to capture the audio correctly, it doesn't sound so crunchy in real life.



Update-The oil looks fine, no metal or brass, same amount of shavings as usual on magnetic drain plug.

The above will work - there is nothing flash or special about the assembly on the UK models, and pretty much any switch off any bike could easily be fabbed to fit :)

As to them failing - that would be incredibly bad luck and amazingly rare. First I've heard of that was about 20 posts ago!... ;)

Finally got out today after a brutal winter here, well, it still is kinda winter here I guess, just had our first melt here in northern BC. This is the only snow free road I could find and yes it was a chilly ride but I just couldn't wait any longer.

Let's try this.
Does this look right to the collective pig brain trust?
It looks like the brake line is sticking out way to far to me.

I'm looking for a pair of OEM XR650R handguards.
Anyone have a newer/clean pair they'd like to part with?
thanks

Hey guys, time for a new sprockets and chain for me. I have had a d.i.d erv3 chain on this thing for 10,000+ miles and it's awesome but very expensive, is there anything else that compares at a cheaper price? For sprockets I'm going with the ironman my 10,000+ miles ones are just barely starting to show wear so they have a customer for life.

I am glad to hear that about Ironman Spokets...since I have one that's relatively new. I picked up my chain on Ebay for a great price, though it fails now how much. I went with a DID X-Ring, and so far it's been spot on! I clean it once a season, and oil it prior to every ride...although last summer was a year lost to riding off road....:sad:

Perhaps, but with FI and a wider ratio trans, I like what you are shooting for. Keep us updated.

If you don't mind spending an extra $2000 when that cheaper chains breaks, then by all means find yourself a cheaper chain. (Search this thread for Primary Drive Chain break). If you are running chains 10,000 miles, the last thing you should be doing is looking for a cheaper one.

To put it in perspective, assume you save $40. You will then be saving yourself $0.004 per mile. That is less than one half of one cent per mile.
