Hey John,

Those holes serve no purpose in sealing or mounting, they are usually where the rivets are in layered steel gaskets and they sit above the bolt holes for torqueing down the cylinder jug

Cheers

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
slight tilting wont do it harm.. Just try it... Strangely mine just sits near up right..

I've been having this real annoying rubbing and scraping sound when coming to a gentle stop lately.

I had it on the lift yesterday and when I turn the wheel it very clearly rubs more on the brake pads on some points than others.

rebuild caliper, replace seals, polish pistons, then clean and if needed buy a master cylinder rebuild kit...

check bleed hole in bottom of mastercylinder recervoir...flush and clean brake line.

all these things will get your brake to work 100 percent

drag is caused by any of these things mentioned...if its not this then look at caliper pins, lube them up nicely and lube the piston cap to pad contact area(if not lubed they squeel)

I just did this while replacing my brake hose line...all good and feel is better, my old 88 line had some give to it, spongy.

I'll give them a wiggle tomorrow

Disc is clearly rubbing more on some points than others, so a caliper rebuild is not gonna solve this anyway

I have tweaked a few of the front disc's on my dirt bikes. I just tap the high spots with a mallet to get the disc back in true. Easy-peasy.

dayum!

jajaja

you lose some weight going to a crf wheel for sure, both the rim, disc and hollow axle weigh less than xr stuff...not to mention spokes and nipples too

all oem discs have a minimum thickness marked on them. I think oem minimum is 3.5mm
