yeah you can try with me, Im kind of retarded too, but I got a good photobucket system working at least for me, only thing is my internet is really slow

but hey what gives

ps yes the old shocks can be reworked to work wonderfully, I would have neil hores look at it, he is way budget friendly and can respring and revalve at a very good cost, compared to say pc, racetech etc...

he also knows our bikes well so that means that he can give you more personal service

anywhoo


have at it man! I would make the dual carb xr6 a monster!

you will have to do something to the forks, they absolutely suck stock...my 88s were horrid, 96 much better, brace more betta, and usds THE BEST! jajaja

thanks kindly
fabrizio take chain off,

then wobble and move the sprocket if its side to side it ok to a certain degree, if you can move the sprocket(its good to put in gear) front to back and forth like that

you have a damaged or soon to be damaged shaft splines....

the thick splined or 6 splined shafts are easier to repair than the 13 splined shafts because you have more material to work with


I like to use RED LOCTITE on the splines and sprocket as its a dry lube and takes up some slack...it stays tight for months then it will loosen back up then you just relube...

cheers

Additionally, when you go to rebuild your motor, whenever that is, put in the new 13 spline CS and run the XRR sprocket

My 6 hundo starts first kick with choke guaranteed cold or warm* and runs and idles freakin' great, except when I am cruising and I have the throttle open just a slight hair it kinda slightly burps every 10 seconds or so. Any ideas? It doesn't bug me but I wonder if it could be a tad lean or something else entirely? Like I said it runs amazing and starts so smooth, just wonder if you guys have had this (very minor) issue.

I have a shortened white bros R4 (quiet core and spark arrestor, fresh packing) and a fattier mid pipe (it's from a 650R) if that helps.

*outside temps, with the bike warm I don't use choke

The owner gave me the shop bill paperwork from the 2000 rebuild, $1500! I had Todd at KTM Northwest go through the carbs and the thing runs really well. The thing isn't mint by any stretch but its a good bike. I had the inaugural ride on it today doing the Alley Sweeper here in Portland and had a blast.

I've got a group of friends with XRLs and we are going to start doing some dual sport trips. If I'm going to do these rides on this bike I'm going to have to do some serious upgrading.

The suspension isn't leaking but its clapped especially with my 240lbs on it (without gear). I end up doing suspension on all my bikes since I'm waay off the factory chart. Is the factory shock worth having rebuilt or should I just go aftermarket? I had the suspension on my CR 500 done with Race Tech and it was awesome. Are the early forks worth rebuilding or are there some better legs that I can swap into my triples?
If I'm going to make this the offroad ride for the next 5 years or more do I get really stupid and do the USD conversion?

I'm 6'6" so it really needs a three inch riser and new cables

It needs a taller seat as the smashed loaf of wonderbread under my ass isn't going to cut it

The rear is a drum but it works ok and doesn't really bother me but is it worth ditching the 17" wheel and putting an 18" on there? I'm good with running 606s or Michelin T 63s

I'm running 14-45 sprockets on it and I'm good with that. Its happy right about 55-60.
I've also thought about finding a 91 or later XR600r and making that the dual sport. I'd keep this one and just leave it as it is.
Thanks guys
I have an 85 so basically the same bike. Rear suspension was toast. I brought it in to our small local Honda shop and they rebuilt it and recharged it for around $70. While they had it apart I had them install a Progressive Suspension spring. You can still find these on ebay sometimes.

I am 210 lbs with no riding gear on. I have rode some 80 - 100 mile long trail rides now with this bike and have been very happy.

ROX Risers Bar risers and CR High bend bars will be your friend too.

i had a simular thing with mine with the 'burps' and would stall when dropping the revs fast to stop like at traffic lights, i went 1/4 to 1/2 a turn in on the mixture, it runs sweet now only a few kicks harder to start, replaced the jets just in case. its still not perfect but good enough for now until i can afford a pumper

bamfslap^^^^

that symptom is classic slightly rich synmptom not lean, lean woukld be a surging feeling...

the burp can you describe it better? is it like a hiccup/sputter? if it is you are slightly rich,

you can turn in your fuel screw like 1/8th of a turn in if its in the pilot idle circuit and it should cure it...

if its in another circuit try doing a plug chop after riding in that circuit for at least a couple of minutes...and see color

WORD! yours died cause it was rich, also if the passage are dirty or you have bad gas its easier to diagnose, as well as stall...
