Thanks for following along on the build. Its a learning experiance for me. I like the XRR a lot because its a solid platform to build on, and all the known issues are sorted out. I think chassis and geometry makes for a great DS bike also.

Look forward to seeing some pics of your build. I hope someday to hit the Trans Canada Trail, that is truely and epic ride!

Sintax, Roger at On Road Off Road did all the work for me. The Gold Valves incorporate re-valving. Roger shimmed the Gold Valves according to my weight, riding style, and that I have an oversize tank. Race Tech allows you to plug in the numbers and it gives you the optimal shimming arrangement. It should be pretty close for me.

I think someone that knows what they are doing can get very good results just re-shimming the fork and shock, with stock parts, also. For example Precision Concepts likey does some of the best work on XRR suspension. WIth correct spring weight, shimming, and fresh oil the XRR can be improved a lot, even without the Gold Valves.

After I ride it, will set up the sag more precisely front and rear.

White Power E Exhaust

Hi Guys
Just wondered if anyone has had problems trying to fit the White Power E Headers to the BRP?

Thought this would be a 1 hour job......Wrong! THe stock pipe came off easy enough but when offering up the right hand exhaust port header to the barrel it only seems to fit when you dont have the retaining guide on the studs. With the guide located on the studs it seems to be pulling the header off centre and it does not line up Arghhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!

Tried rotating the bracket through 180 degrees but that makes it worse so I have the right orientation. The left hand exhaust port lines up perfect bu the right does not !!!

Both bike and exhaust are secondhand so dont know if things have had a knock and kicked them out of allignment - looking at the engine / header pipe it all looks OK.

Any ideas guys ????

Thks

I Know hodaka guy, not sure how much he follows the xrr forum. I will let him know he has some sales waiting. PS I am sure he looks at his PM. Somebody was asking if the unibiker radiator guard and tanker brace will work with the 6.3 Acerbis. They will and the install is a pain especially if you have added a fan. Really complicates checking/adjusting valves.

Hi Guys. I'm still making the braces but I've been slammed lately and I'm currently out of stock. Back in May when I ran out I was prepping for our upcoming Desert trip...now that I'm back I've been working on the house and my VW Westfalia build. I'll try and get a batch going soon though and I'll post up here when they are available. I build them on my days off so it has to get squeezed in with everything else.

Sorry for the delay in getting them built....I'll have them up soon

Just to clarify the Tanker Brace will install easily with this combo, the fan/rad guards will make access to the valve cover a lot tighter. With the Tanker Brace/Acerbis desert tank combo I really feel a rad guard isn't needed.

Fitting Unabiker with Fluyidines?

Just a question on fitting up Unabiker rad guards with oversize Fluyidine rads. I got the Unabikers because I saw them installed on another XRR with the Fluyidines. But, I figured with the deeper rad, the Unibikers may not fit. What I did not see was that likely the back supports were not installed.

So I can only get the upper Unabiker mount bolted in and the lower mount is only "sandwiched" in. The back rad supports wont fit.

I am running the Acerbis tank with Hodakaguy's tanker guard. I see Hodakaguy's sage advice that a rad guard is not really needed with this combo. But, while the Unabikers are not fully braced in the back, they are still fairly well mounted and still provide additional protection. But, I dont like anything that is half ass on my bike.

So, any tips or mods for fully mounting up the Unabikers with the deeper rads, or should I just bail on it, and go without? Or, try a different radiator guard?

Thanks dudes!

Unibiker makes extra deep rad guards for the XXR that are designed to work with oversize rads. I'm using them now with oversize Chinese rads. I have also used the tanker brace and rad guards together with no issues. The only issue I do have is getting the Acerbis tank on with the Chinese rads as there seems to be interfernce some where at the top. When I ran the the extra deep rad guards with the stock rads I didn't have any interference problems.

Call the Unabiker guy and get a set specific to Fluidynes. He makes them, just doesn't list them on his site. He'll probably swap you with what you've already got.

Speaking of all that, are you planning to add a fan to that setup? I have run the Fluidyne/Unabiker combo for awhile, but just got an Acerbis tank in the mail. Even with the Fluidynes I still find my bike getting HOT at slower speeds and high ambient temps. I hate to even say it, but I'm not even sure the Fluidynes make a difference .

Has anyone mounted a fan to the Fluidynes? I have the fan, but am just looking for advice.

After a few weeks of getting the bike ready it's finally road legit and running strong. Brought her home last night...

Thanks very much for the info on the extra deep Unabikers! I appreciate it, will check into that.
I was not planning on running a fan but can consider it. I guess the Fluidynes need enought air moving through them to work, like any other rad?

They would be easy to check. Got spark? No? Then what is the resistance showing on the coils? Is one of the coils grounding?

If you rewound it, I would suspect a grounding problem from the scraping of enamal from the mag wire. When rewinding make sure to use good wire (good wire has good enamel) as it will save you some serious headaches. I get my wire from gobrushless.com. I haven't rewound a stator yet, but have built a number of motors which is essentially the same thing. In fact, you could theoretically power your bike by applying electricity to your stator turning it in to an electric motor.

Hey, I might be on to something....the xr650r hybrid...look for it in the slow lane.
