The Xr 600/650 tank is different from the XR 250 tank. The 250 tank is 1/2 gallon smaller and the brackets are slightly different. I found this out when i put an 250 tank on my 600.

Thanks Jeff, next question is who makes them? This is the first time I have seen one

Just as Steve said, I'll post pics when I get home tonight, nothing needs to be forced !.
If you want, I have and '88 Manual and can copy the Rear Suspension section and post it to ya, I think you'll need it to re-assemble (PM an address). I know the local KTM dealer, took a 1 litre bottle to him and he filled it with GHEN-YOU-WHINE White Power rear shock oil for $20....

As Steve pointed out AND it's etched on the part too this item, as well as many other cool things come from: XR's only. I've done business with them for quite a while now. They are a great company and have always done me right. When you do go to their website you may want to hide your credit card you WILL see quite a bit of must have items.

Cheers mate, I'll see if I can get it apart before I take you up on that offer!

Just to make sure we are all on the same page, I already have taken the circlip out? So is there another clip to remove, or should it pull apart?

Thanks guys,

John

Hello,

Let me introduce my XR600R 1992 model.
I have had this bike for 3 years. It is a great bike, reliable and fun.

Some mods I have:
- 200W stator (Ricky Stator)
- Led lights 2x10W
- H4 main light
- Front forks from XR650R -01 (Excellent mod!)
- 22litre Acerbis gas tank
- Handlebar heaters (Oxford)
- Cigarette plug for gps
- Vapor speedometer
- Mikuni TM60 carburettor

I also ride during winter using enduro spikes (7mm spikes). The winter here in northern Finland is about 4-5 months long.

Some pics here:



Going to the winter bike meeting in Raahe, Finland



If you like videos here is one when riding on ice road nearby my home town.

FCR-MX clearance

Hi Guys

Got to the stage of fitting the new carb , and I'm having issues with clearance.

I've read where others have had a problem with the tank , however my situation is that the top of the carb ( cable housing ) is hitting the frame.

It appears I may be able to swivel the carb anti-clockwise , but I'm concerned about causing problems with the float level. Will it still function correctly ?

Alternatively , does anyone have any experience of fitting an XR 650 ( L or R ?? ) intake manifold ? I'm sure I've read that they have a different angle........

Thanks in advance

Stu

Haha I see all you guys riding in snow and am like . Shit, if it gets below 7 degrees C (about 40F) I seriously consider not riding at all, luckily that almost never happens.

Anyway, the first part of my rebuild arrived, the head and base gaskets!

I'm using the 101mm Cosmetic Gasket kit for the 100mm bore. But it seems that the gasket is missing some of the holes that the original had? Anyone want to chime in here?



Thanks,

John
