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.
Thanks for the feedback. Did you need new cables for your riser/bar set up?

Question Gas Tank Bracket Measurements

TheRealBigMan is going to check this for me in a day or so but I thought I'd ask here as well if someone has easy access to it.

I'm wanting to get metric measurements from center of hole to center of hole from 1988 to 2000 XR600R gas tank bracket.



I made a custom bracket to fit a Clarke tank to work on an XR250R but need to drill it still and if the OEM bracket has the correct fit, then I'll just buy a pair.

From the custom bracket I made, the measurements are:

1) 7.5 cm
2) 9.5 cm
3) 4.0 cm

Any help would be greatly appreciated. And yes, I already got plenty of drilling advice and have that covered if I decide to go that direction.

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

I thought it might be rich but it definitely needs the full choke to start easily (first kick)...so it might be only slightly on the rich side? And yeah it's just a hiccup only at 1/8 of throttle or less. I'll try barely adjusting the fuel screw. Thanks guys!

I wanted to make brackets that would tilt my infamous IMS4 galon tank up and back a bit since the wings sat so close to the head that in real hot climbs it would boil my gas!!!1

id really be interested in seing pics of your finished brackets

that way I could switch back and forth if I wanted too

thanks

Hey man, yeah I've used 20W-50 Motul 5100 in my road bike before and liked it. Was having trouble selecting neutral while the bike was on, would just click between first and second. Changed to the Motul and I have been able to easily find neutral for the past 3500km.

If you find it on special I would say grab it! Not sure about the XR but can't imagine that it would be too picky re oil?

Gears!

Got a visit from the courier today, the gears from Steve have arrived!
Amusingly, the rest of the stuff needed for the rebuild is still probably 2 weeks out.

Will update as it progresses.
