Looks like a clean 2000 model.

The inlet valves look like they stuck open at speed and ate the piston. Messy. Rest of the bits should be good. I wouldn't mind your old frame if you giving it way? Oh hang on you live over there....oh well tel est la vie.

a silly but infuriating problem, my oil filler/dip stick seems to be impossible to scre back in without taking the seat/tank off and cussing the bugger for twenty minutes!!!! Seems to cross thread unless you can line up the bugger and press hard into the filler neck and then she needs a pair of pliers to screw her in for the last half of thread length. Checked thread on dipstick and all looks fine and also thread in frame looks clean.

Does anyone else have this problem or is it just me??
It's a known pain in the rear. The advice I took was too snip off the bottom inch of the dipstick. Problem solved.

You don't need that bottom inch since there is so much distance between the low and high oil marks.

Its common...the trick is to run the tip down the right side of the frame...(or at least point it in that direction....It makes it easier but if its already been cross threaded you may need to get it right a few times to clean up the plastic threads.

XR Jetting

Hey guys, this is my first post on advrider. Just picked up my first BRP last month, it's an '03 that I bought from a guy who couldn't handle the bike. So it's got about 300 miles on it (original tires and all) and I just got it cali plated last week! I went through the uncorking process yesterday and once everything was put back together, I flipped on the choke and kicked, and kicked, and kicked... for about 5 minutes or so, with no results. I understand that you have to refill the carb, but this was rediculous. so I took a break, turned off the choke, kicked twice and had a little burp came out. flipped to half choke and it started right up. i turned the choke off and it tore ass: no sputtering, no popping on deceleration, it felt really good. anyone have any idea why it won't start with the choke on? should this bother me? here are the specs:

bikes about 40' ASL
temperature is 75 deg.
HRC exhaust tip
HRC carb insulator
UNI filter
B53E Jet needle (3rd clip)
#175 Main Jet
68S slow jet
I've also removed the snorkel and clip out of the air box.

I'm going to take off the smog kit today, I'll let you know if that makes any difference.

thanks for your advice!

Sounds proper to me.
Little to no choke on a warm day is a good thing, I'd think that means your jetting is proper and not too lean!

hey,
my starting routine for the brp is one kick with full choke, it wont start on full choke, but after this kick back to half joke and it fires up on the first kick, at least 90percent of the time.
if it is warm, no choke at all.
cheers

Thanks King and Seppo! took off the smog and did some riding yesterday. the bike's been starting on the first kick at half choke, so I guess that's my new starting routine... I do appreciate the advice, I was concerned that something was wrong.

So, next question is: What are the other must-have mods for this bike? My supermoto wheel set (sun rims, stock hubs, pirelli diablos) is coming in this week, and as soon as the funds are back up I'm planning on getting a new tank and seat, it's not uncommon for me to ride a few hundred miles a day and the fewer stops for gas and the less pain in my ass the better!

No Prob...Sounds like it is running great!

What other mods have been already done to the bike? Everything greased? (swingarm and linkage are known to need extra from the factory if you don't know how much the previous owner did. As well as the steering stem bearings. Those are must...suspension need work if its stock and I'd assume certainly if going supermotard!

Tells us more about your bike...I'm sure we can fill your brain with mods!
