Just a pricing heads up, the rockers were about $150, the cam was about the same, rings, guides and seals where about $150 also. I ended up spending around $600 on the top end....all over a $6 QT of oil! I have a sight tube now......


Just out of curiousity, what is it going to cost you to have the cam reground? It might be cheaper and easier to go with a stage 1 or 2 Hotcams. I have a new timing chain, guide and tensioner if you need them. I'll give you a good deal on them!
I agree with both of the above...I'd recommend to get rockers hardfaced with use with hotcams as well.

May even consider some stainless steel Valves while the head is apart. That combined the above will bring it back to its bulletproof self!

Did some KLR'ed farkles to the XRR today. Been thinking of an easy, affective way to help support the rear subframe. I got to looking and saw a solution:



It might work good. I will defintely help! I did have to mod the bottom of the seat alittle but nothing major

Parts list:
2' of 5/32" cable
4 - 1/8" to 3/16" cable clambs
2- 3/16" turn buckles
8" of left over nylon tubing
misc hardware

I actually broke my left hand Moose guard the other day. Bent the hell out of it and snapped the end off right at the bolt!







Here is another KLR farkle, not sure I like them but they will look alot better after they are blacked out.

I thought I would never destroy my skidplate- and then I did about two months ago. I upgraded just before RMAR to the XR's only Ricochet that looks kinda like yours. It gives me alot more confidence on rough trails but man oh man, it adds noise, something unbelievable - I thought I needed to set my valves after I installed it. I am thinking of adding some Dynamat or something to cut the clatter.

I will wait to read your review on the Tusk bark busters, need those bad.

Since I know you are hopping up your XRR this might be of interest. I installed the 4" SPAL Fan ($38) last weekend. It works great and still no battery needed on the stock stator! Just installed a $5 Full-Wave Bridge Rectifier (RadioShack model 276-1185) to convert the AC to DC. The fan, my LED rear light, 12V charger, Vapor and light works just fine. Even at idle there is plenty juice to run the fan. I did install a waterproof switch for it so I can turn it on or off if I need.

Isnt this a great hobby

Just discovered I cross threaded my damper rod in my shock when I re-vavled it some 6-7000km's ago. Pretty peed to discover that, but at the same time I'm extremely excited it held the entire time! That could have been a hell of a ride depending on when it let go...


Sooo. Anybody have a used shock? Condition doesn't matter other then the rod is not pitted and not bent. I'll be replacing the damper assembly with my own and the piston/seal head and installing in my shock body. No need for a spring either.

Looking for as cheap as I can get. Sunk a few grand into this bike in the last month and hurting now

What not to do when re-valving suspension.... I feel like such an idiot.

Looking to order up a stage 1 hotcams for my sumo BRP...

Anything else i should think about changing out while the motor is that far apart? I was thinking the rear cam chain guide, the CCT, and the cam itself of course. New cam bearings? (does the cam come with them?)

I really don't understand how this system can help the rear subframe.
the fixing point are always the same.. the long bolt trough the frame.
where the iron cables turn around with rubber tubing..

I would do the chain itself for sure. Don't know about the bearings -- post up when you figure it out, I might do a stage 1 myself.
