CRF450R 06 FMFQ4 silencer on XR650R.

I have the possibility to rescue the FMFQ4 silencer from my former CRF450R 2006, and i would like to know if it would fit on the XR650R. Any info? thanks.

Remember the crank runs at half cam speed hence four strokes between ignition.

The 'T' mark must be lined up with valves closed (in the up position) not with the valves opened (in the down position)

Try the following method to avoid confusion as it has allways worked for me -
Assuming you have the valve covers off -
Ensure kills switch is set to off
With your hand 'Slowly' push down the kick starter until you see the inlet valve open (go down)
Continue pushing the kick starter slowly until the inlet valve begins to close (come up)
At this point look through the inspection cover on the left crank case and continue turning the crank 'anti clockwise' until the 'T' mark lines up.
This must place the engine at TDC on the compression stroke with valves shut (in the up position)
Set clearances at this point.

Good luck

thanks for the help. got it figured out friday night. they were a bit tight. gonna check em every oil change now.

Rad Guards - And Custom Acerbis Sahara Mounts

Just finished installing the Unabiker radiator guards on my XRR, Great Product!!!!

Also I had to fabricate some lower Acerbis Sahara tank mounts to use with the Unabiker's. They also work as a brace.

You can see the full write up on the XR650RForum here: CLICK HERE




Here's a shot of the home brew lower tank mount/guard. More pics on the link above.

Well my XR was burning some oil after i did a wide open throttle run for about 30 minutes
i think i lost about 250ML on that ride, if im easy on the throttle she never burns oil.

Does anyone know what causes oil loss when the bike is revved out for long periods? Is there a fix or is it just the charastitic of a large power single?

Quick questions for the experts here. I installed an Edelbrock carb on the bike awhile back (stock carb I had on there was beat to hell). I noticed on a few of my shorter rides that she drinks a little more fuel than normal. This weekend I went on a 110 mile jaunt with the Acerbis tank (6.3 gallons) installed. I put a gallon of fuel in the bike about 50 miles in that an ATV buddy didnt want to carry anymore. When I finished the ride I only had a little over a gallon left in the tank . So I figure 110 miles and 6 gallons of gas used....thats 18 mpg! No fuel leaks from the tanks or fuel lines, bike was running pretty rich, but other than that I have no clue. What is everyone else with this setup getting range wise? I'm tearing the bike down again this week to take care of some other things, so I'm willing to try out any ideas you guys have. Thanks from your resident MRS expert.

mileage

I'm getting a steady 34 mpg with my Edlebrock. That's with 13/48 gearing road riding 50mph 15 miles one way to rocky 1st gear singletrack, 15 miles of that stuff then 15 miles back home on the road. Sounds like a mileage miscalculation? 18mpg just seems unreasonable.

That said, I am definitely not an expert on the carb. I bought the bike with the Eddie installed 5 years ago and it seems to run good after minor adjustment.

The worst I've ever averaged for a ride was in the low 30's. My only complaint with the E-brock is I have to run the idle to low mid a little rich to get the WFO fuel rich enough.

I wish that were the case. GPS and odometer both showed 110 miles, and I used/lost 6 gallons of gas. Maybe its time for another valve check

Seeing all the mileage from the aftermarket carbs... What about a stock set up? What sort of mileage should we be seeing?

I didn't see any difference, IMHO a properly tuned bike is going to get very close to the same mileage reguardless of what carb is on it.
