Shibby, you were right! I have inspected the fork damper more carefylly and - yes! The spring was there. Thank you for a tip!

Swing arm bolt

Before I start beating the crap out of my swing arm bolt I want to make sure I have got it right.

1. remove rear wheel
2. remove bolts from rear shock
3. remove rear brake line hose guides and secure brake caliper
4. remove pivot nut and washer from the stand side of the bike
5. pound the crap out of the pivot bolt to remove it.

Am I doin' it right? Thanks!

Mine had never been apart in it's 10 years, so it was damn near frozen. I spent a lot of time on step #5, then had to buy a new bolt.
Steps look good to me from the manual.

No problem.

I know because I've been there. Had to do a little research myself to find out that on most forks the springs just stick up top. No point removing them as long as you confirm they're in there on rebuild.

Good luck with the servicing. XRR suspension definitely needs work from factory. With Borynack's suspension mods/valving/oil it completely changes it.

Seat Concepts

After 140 miles of single track and fire roads yesterday my ass is begging that I find a better platform to rest it on. So the stock seat has got to go.

Has anyone heard of or tried Seat Concepts?

I have not heard of Seat Concepts. I had the same complaint on the stock seat. It was like a prostate exam in the form of a vinyl covered 2X4. I went with Guts Racing Tall/Soft foam and cover. Less than $100 for comfort. If I had the time and money, I would have waited for a Renazzco, but the Guts seat is comfortable enough that I am not considering any more upgrades.

I have a seat concepts as well, and have seen a big improvement, though I have not ridden for extended trips. It is somewhat similar to stock in looks, but has a wider back and it is flat, which makes for a better posture. I will snap a picture tonight as well.

Turn the bolt with a wrench a few rotations to break it loose. My bolt was very rusty but I was able to punch it out fairly easily.

New proud owner needs help:
I just bought a 2005 XR650R and need some help/input on getting it registered in Nevada. If anyone has recently got their pig registered in Nevada or if you know of any information available on the forum I could definitely use a little assistance.
I also need help finding a dealer that is willing to do the inspection and sign the VP-254 form.
Any BRP owners that live in the Las Vegas area and want to help a guy out on learning more about my new XR give me a shout.
You teach and I buy beer!
Thanks

I got my carb issues sorted out finally. found another chunk of rubber stuck in the float valve seat. the rubber backing behind the petcock selector was dry rotted and was sending bits of rubber into the carb every time the selector was rotated. replaced the stock petcock with a new Clarke unit and cleaned the carb out and now it runs good and doesn't sit there leaking fuel everywhere. I feel so much better now

Rally and Rdr,

Thanks. I have a brass drift and am soaking the blt in penetrating solvent. The bolt will not spin at all....so I pound on it, and then pound on it again.

I will let you know how it goes- thanks guys.
