Its a perfect budget upgrade or replacement, a lot of people have worn out oem carbs that no matter how much parts you replace you cant get right so this option that is sold by xrsonly for $250 new is a great option for those of us that dont have the $$$ for a full on pumper, which yeah is better but THEY can be a pain in the ass to tune...

just read a bit on the many carb modd forums and you will die of the pains some people have...

anywhoo

if you read my little add on the carb you see that I point out WHERE its better than oem, by a lot...

the thing is in the end everyone has opinions and likes and dislikes....

on the xr650r forums some people LOVED the tm40 carb, some hated it, some loved the eddie carb and some detest it, some love the stocker or the hsr carbs...

some even hate the oem carb! jajaja so everyone gets their pick

peace

That is all for now, carry on!

I had a very OLD battery in it when I purchased it a few years ago, just never got around to messing with it. Really don't NEED one for it to run but it's nice to have SOME type of lights on the bike when it's not running. Now I have to remember to flip the toggle switch off when I park it. The key set-up that I have on it works very well but the toggle switch is the only thing that activates the tail light. I'm thinking about splicing in another set of wires and running them up to the front LED signals in the headlight shroud. They are low draw anyway (as is the LED tail light) so the battery wouldn't have a problem running both of them. That way I would have lights front and rear when I flip the switch, almost like a real motorcycle

BTW I got the battery and charger from my local batteries Plus store, $42 out the door!

A small issue, I think?

While putting everything back together, specifically the front sprocket, I noticed the retainer tabs are slightly grooved on one side, where it mates up with the counter shaft after you spin and lock it. This is allowing some side to side slop/play in the brand new front sprocket. Is that normal? Is the retainer worn, or are the tabs grooved when new? Here are some pics:

Front sprocket on countershaft


Retainer, grooved tabs side


Retainer, other side (slightly worn tabs too, but not as bad)


Anyone see something I'm missing?

It's worn out. It's supposed to be flat on both sides.

That's what I was thinking too, but it looks like it's been that way for quite some time. Thanks

I'm wondering how those snail adjusters got so worn out.

They were like that when I got it. It is a 25 year old dirt bike (with tags)........things just wear out after a while I guess.

I think somebody was beating them with a hammer instead of loosening the axle.

There's a guy in The Garage looking for a tensioner tool for these so he doesn't have to use a hammer and screwdriver anymore.
