Race Tech Gold Valve

Anyone interested in a Race Tech Gold Valve for their XR600 shock?

I bought a XR600 shock, two of them actually off of E-Bay and tried rebuilding them with a Race Tech Gold Valve. The first shock was toast upon disassembly so I bought #2. My bud rebuilt #2 shock but it to was shot. The ID of the body was worn out.

So, now I have two dead XR600 shocks and a new Gold Valve that has maybe 20 miles on it. Can you say pogo stick?

PM me if interested.

This may have been discussed somewhere in this thread already, but since it seems to be coming up again... Does anyone have a good baseline jetting for an FCR40 being used on a stock XR600?

I found some decent info on this conversion to an XR650L on the Supermotjunkie forum, but thought I would compare to peoples results here.

Im jetting for sea level.

I'm running a 48 pilot, crf450 needle. I put a big 180 main until I can fine tune it. It's pretty good, no bogging at all. Oh and it's a stock engine.

Air filter oil

So this is my first dirt bike and first with a foam air filter. I bought a twin air filter and some spray on oil to oil the filter, all good.

I understand that you put oil on the filter, work it through with your fingers till it's covered and then gently try and get rid of any excess. Leave it overnight and then put it in... correct? (I read the back of the twin air packet).

But I do that, seems fine, but then a day or so later there will be filter oil dripping out the side of the bike, running down the frame and onto the ground. Obviously the angle when it is on the sidestand is quite extreme so that's partially he reason, but I don't think that there should be that much oil sitting around in the airbox anyway, shouldn't it be in the filter?

So have I just been putting to much oil in this whole time? How should I do it instead?

Cheers,

John

Many years ago, I used to wash the old oil and crud out using petrol, and when it dried, would pour a bit of engine oil onto the filter, work it through, then wring out the excess oil. I certainly wasn't gentle with it by any means, but it seemed to work ok.

Seeing as I now have Honda XL and XR again, I will be using the same process, I imagine.

you can squeeze the filter pretty hard to get excess out, DON'T under any chance TWIST the filter.. this will ripp it.
