Drakehouse,

Why not just post here or better yet in the fleamarket that you want a used stator for your project from an 85 - 87 XR600R? I would gladly send you one if I hadn't just thrown mine away a week ago...

A lot of people have upgraded to the Ricky Stators, so the old burnt up originals are probably still sitting in garages all across this great nation just waiting for you to take them....

"parts fich" ? Is there a website that shows that stuff? I thought bikebandit.com would have it, but not so much.

Its a 17"
You can re-lace a 18" rim onto the stock hub. Its been done before and I just posted on this topic in the XR500 thread. My 84 XR5 came with the 17" rear and the previous owner of my bike had a Sun rim put on the stock hub with new/longer spokes.

Its the middle wheel in this photo. The wheel on the right is the stock 17 rear, and the one on the left is an XL6 with cush hub.

Good 50/50 tires

Hey guys, I have to buy some new enduro tires for my '85 XR and just wanted to get some insight as to what the best 50/50 tire is. Any suggestions are much appreciated. I've never had to buy any before and It's that time. Thanks in advance.

That'll come in handy for sure.

A while back, I had mentioned that it looked like I had a leak at my front sprocket. Someone had mentioned that it's probably an easy fix with a dental tool and a new gasket. The main reason I was looking for an exploded view of the bike was so I could see what it looked like.

Do you guys know where I could find that gasket if I needed it? We are going to take a closer look at it this weekend.

Did you install a Ricky Stator? If so the leak is most likely where the wiring comes out of the stator cover. If not then it's the countershaft seal.

Item #30

Stab the seal with an ice pick and pry it out. When you install the new one make sure that you only insert it so it's flush with the outside lip. If you push it to far in it will rub on the bearing inside.

I bought the bike, and my wife and I noticed the leak after we got home from the sellers. I haven't done any work to it at all.

Thanks for the tips, and the link.

Alright, so what is the general thought on the oil line banjo bolts?

The one with the smaller cross hole is on the head and the larger cross hole is on the case?

I've read stuff about people enlarging the smaller bolt to have the same sized crossholes as the other one, and other people have said stuff like 'enlarge both cross holes' etc etc.

What is the general consensus? Useless? People just fucking around, thinking it works? Or does it actually improve oil flow?

Cheers,

John

Leave it the way it is. Increasing oil flow to the top end will reduce oil flow through the crank and gearbox.
