All I can say is thank goodness for the SwingArm Buddy!

The most difficult (and most important) part of the procedure is drilling out the broken bolts. You have to work your way up to with two smaller diameter drill bits before using the 3/8" bit provided in the kit. At least one of the smaller bits needs to be extra-long, otherwise your it will not clear the swingarm and you will drill crooked. Also critical, is making a very deep center punch mark - in the center of the broken bolt. I hit the center punch several times to be sure to get a deep punch mark. The finished 3/8" hole must be centered in the swingarm... not a procedure for the squeamish!

The kit makes a very solid repair and I applied anti-seize to the new adjusting bolts. The only down-side to the kit, is the new bolts are 5/16" american, which means you have to use a 1/2 wrench to adjust your chain, which may mean having to pack an extra wrench in your tool kit, although you might still get away with using a 13mm metric.

The steel insert is slightly over-sized compared to the 3/8" drill bit, so it is a good press fit into the swingarm.






That is what I was planning on doing when the time comes

If you keep fresh anti-seize on them the time won't ever come.

What kind of case saver is that? Can you give us a close up? I just like the color, but was wondering if it offers other advantages over the xrso.
It doesn't look that pretty anymore! I hard to get a scotch brite pad and clean it off just to read who made it. It was a xr's only set up

That happened to me TWICE. Had to get the torch out and heat them up to get it to break loose.
always wondered if there was a fix if they broke. Thanks for the info.

Heard if you drill a 1/8 inch hole in the bottom of the swing arm it would drain the water that seeps in and it won't happen as often or be as bad - Is that true???

I drilled weep holes on my 2002 XRR, you could hear the water sloshing in the swingarm before I drilled it. Bolts came out and I anti-seized them, stayed good with the weep holes.

Thanks for sharing that fix Buell78753, didn't know that was available!!

You're welcome for the answer and pic of the Hinson basket.

Lurve the comments here, "very VW"
Never can have too much power!!! If ones good two MUST be better - Right?
The one crank/rod set up were seized as one and had to be replaced. Just put a new stock setup in.

Edelbrock question.

This is for the XR250 eddie, but it's pretty much the same carb.

Anyway, let the XR sit for a few months and failed to drain the carb. So went to clean out the bowl and realized the gas ate away at the black mesh-spongy screen in the bottom of the carb. I just took it out, and reinstalled everything without it. Bike starts fine, but am curious what exactly that mesh screen is for, and should I look at getting another one?
My edumacted guess is that it screens/traps/catches particles in the fuel, and stops them from circulating in the bowl.

Any insight?

OK upon your guys suggestion a few pages back I tore the carb off my bike to clean it. Turns out the needles are clean, but its using the stock needle sizes with a pipe on it! 125 main and 65s is stock right? Damn previous owner told me the bike was jetted! No idea why he ran the bike like this...


The bike stalls every once in a while on idle (scary for me as a new kick starter in traffic ) and backfires/pops when I let off the gas. The mods on it are a Uni filter and a FMF titanium pipe. Also say if I am in 3rd and run it out and shift into 4th, as soon as I peg the gas there is a second or two of hesitation. At first I assumed the bike was running quite rich but it has to be lean has hell correct? When cold the bike will die if I give it full choke as well.

I am going to check the plug soon too so I can get an idea if it was lean or rich...

My altitude is near sea level (under 1000ft) and temps are around 70-90f during the day (Bay Area CA.) I am thinking 170 or 175 main and 68s idle. Does this sound good with a pipe and filter? Where is a good place to order the jets? I assume the bike will run better after, but will it have more power too? I am not sure what is "normal" power wise. Should this bike wheelie if I grab a lot of throttle in 1st? I have sumo wheels and a 15t front sprocket and it does not seem like that is possible with my 220lbs ass on the bike as it is now.

My plan while I have the carb off is to check the valves and other tender loving care to my new to me BRP.

EDIT: Are there any other parts I need to order to "uncork" the carb?

Jetting should be 175 main,b53e needle in 3rd groove from the top,68s pilot jet.Make sure it has the correct intake manifold-the oem manifold had a restriction in it.Take a hole saw and saw out the middle of the baffle in the pipe.A aftermarkit pipe will help.If you run 1 of those airbox screen kits from xr's only you can jet up to 178.Also try a 1996 xr400 cdi box.

I'm in Elk Grove and run a 165 main and 68s, but I always head for higher ground when riding the thumpers, never really ride around the low elevations.

Good uncork article:

Being a California bike you might have the smog stuff still on it, eliminate that junk too.
