I'm finally getting a rod for my 93. The machinest is a HotRods dealer but said I could bring him any rod I wanted.
Is the ProX better?

I have used the Pro-X rods on a few rebuilds. I don't care for the Hot Rod products.

So absolutely none of the 15t sprockets are made as thick as the oem one? So you think i should just stay OEM and throw like a 40T in the back for my dualsport? My drive sprocket doesn't look very worn at all, neither does the chain or stock rear sprocket. Should I just be cheap and get the rear sprocket and rock it?

basucally you have the old style which is damper rod only, and can only be adjusted for compression on the bottom...it works fine

newer style cartridge again has bottom compression adjustemnt only however the damping style has a cartridge "ROD" however its a very basic shimless type pretty much where the rod goes into a valve on the bottom with different sized holes that can be "revalved"

the only discernable and quite pleasing attribute the newer style forks have against the old style forks is that of withstandind SHARP EDGED HITS better...this because the cartridge rod does a better job of bleeding off oil pressure than the damper rod on the 90 and lower year forks

so in other words there is no physical benefit other that that of better valving action at speed against for example sharp rocks...

with a brace and respring and playing around with oil weights I got my cartridge forks to work pretty damn well, really good actually, what I still hated was that every crash or tipover the damn forks still twsited and bent like spaghuetti even with the fork brace, and that made me even more mad as after a crash with the brace unless you loosened everythying up you now had fork BINDING

very bad!

thats my cents

lastly the bleeders are just that...play with fork springs and weights equally with the two styles, also the compression screws on the bottom work quite well...especially if you have the cotrrect weight oil in there...5w for new style 10w for old style...dexron 6 atf works the best for fork oil


Too much hassle for me. I think I'll just build an CRF fork in my XR and then take it to Hyperpro and let them set it for supermoto use. Thanks a BUNCH broski.. Gonna save your reply for later reference!

Naw, the moose sprockets for the xr650 fit and are non hardened. They are much wider than stock.

the cheapest way to stiffen up the xr is to buy XRL springs...they are .44kg instead of .41 on the xr

that or cut 2 inches off the stock springs and add a 2 and 1/2 spacer on top...thats enough preload and stiffening for most under 200lb riders or semi loaded

I did it on my xr6 before swapping over to usds and and xrl shock

on the rear if you have a 91 and up shock...you can put the xrl spring which is 10.5 versus 10 or 9.5 for the xr6 I cant remember

Im running a revalved xrl shock on my 88 xr6, the improvement is beyind simple words...

hey Im installing a donated clutch pack...and I forgot which way the numbers go on the actual disks...

My oem disks show no numbers but do have that semicircle

Im using a donated xrl clutch pack and they have numbers too...as well as full sem circle cutouts...

Im brain farting here...

to notice is that my old springs are not sagged...they are exactly the same hieght as the new ones(ebc) however the olds disks look a little thiiner and dark...also the metal plates were slightly grooved or polished looking...

I also took the time to smooth out some nothces I didnt get rid of the first rebuild...both on the inner and outer basket

please help me remember!

thanks

christian

Tried washing my plstics but couldn't wash them, they looked like s*it. But just found the way to make then new-like:





Scrubed them with dish-wash abrasive detergent and a dish sponge!
