The correct one - '96 & '97 models - I cannot find, but also is not made anymore.
Today Honda sells one unit covering all years of XR400's, 1996 to 2004, and the Honda part number ends on 761 - note pls, this is different than the "correct" number 671 !
PigPen has this newer 'replacement' unit. He mentions he thinks it revs quicker, suspects that it indeed advances by 2 degrees, but admits he doesn't know.

No offence pls but that's too vague for me.
Who knows if this newer Honda-CDI will improve same like the 'old' untis do?
Would really like to know this.

Secondly, if anyone has one of the 'old' units for sale pls PM me.
Just watch ebay...they pop up, And get the one that is model No. 070000-2650. Its on the silver sticker...if you can't see it in the pic...ask the seller. Many will say 97-2004 cause they all will work...but that is how you KNOW one is the older one vs the newer one.

For your reference the newer one is 070000-2740 But if you want to be sure go for the old one. I can't tell you anything about the newer model (070000-2740) timing advance, or the rev-limiter.

(hope that didn't confuse things)

Lightened Flywheel

Never thought about a lightened flywheel cause I like the torque in the woods and don't need the RPM's...

But now that I have a second set of wheels, A Kush Sprocket and 16/45 gearing I thought I may look for another flywheel just to have on for street trim!

How light is the general consensus to go on the flywheel?

I'm a fan. It's one thing I noticed when switching back to my original motor. I don't think you will lose any if much in the bottom end. The other is how strong the stock motor really is. Not missing the 680 so much.

A second flywheel would be the way to go. If your don't like it off road you can just switch back.

My riding has a lot of narrow stuff thrown in so the pig is dipping into a lot of corners. I really noticed the gyro effect of the stock flywheel.

Thanks King,

Appreciated, and no, that doesn't confuse me 'cause I know all the (different) numbers. I'm hardly a FleaBay flea, hate the medium actually, but I suppose I may have to if no-one knows.
But again: if anyone has one and want to sell it I'll pay a good price for it, pls shout or PM.


Kush Sprocket.... it just so happens I am following a thread (dualsport.ca) on them, as I've got a hard time trusting them to last.
I'd appreciate to hear your comments on your findings, on both noticeability & lifetime.

Very nice! Just got my GL Coyote last week. Can't wait to try it out. Heading up to your neck of the woods for a 10 day dual sport ride the second week of June with my brothers and dad.

Here she is finally strapped back together..New Tank, Leo Vince (more pics of that to come) full system, New Swing arm bearings, greased up linkage bearings and stearing head bearings, new re-built shock, new fork oil and big boy springs, new Moose pro footpegs, new motion/gutz seat (the XL is photoshopped in..I'm gonna need to find where I can get it made)..so far so good..lotsa work. Pipe sounds great and an easy install...wonderful quality.

I was watching the vid of all the bikes coming thru that spot in your ride report and the XR's looked out of control and powerful compared to the rest.

Bonebag,

was wondering - what is this thing?

Also, mind telling why you've got dual case-savers mounted?

Most folks in these parts don't know the XRR exists...so i would like it to say XL..so they aren't too confused..

That little part is for rear footpegs..
and it's not dual case savers..the red one (stock is small and 14T) is a 15T case saver from XR's only..the outer is just a cage and is stock and I like it as it keeps my boots from getting in there when the going gets crazy..

And they are not going to be confused when you smoke the living daylights out of them on the trail?

you got that right.

I need some spare parts to get my bike prepped for vegas 2 reno:

extra wheels.
steering dampner.
extra plastics. don't need the headlight.

If you guys happen to come across any good deals, please let me know and thanks in advance.

may be a dumb question but is a stage 1 hotcam different than a stock cam? I had a stage 1 in my last xr and it was fast as all hell, but I don't know if any of that was due to the cam alone.

then I just need to get the suspension dialed in and some conditioning and I'll be ready.
