Gearing is 15/47 right now. Chain is a top of the line DID O-ring. No chain oiler.
I ran 15/48 for a while, it was a hoot around town. I feel that the 14/40 is a lot better suited to the road though, and you still get mental pull off the line... perhaps better because of the longer gearing being more suited to the spin-up characteristics of the engine. If I were to gear the rear again I'd go a 41 or 42 though as 15/40 is slight overkill and 14/40 doesn't quite have enough legs for my liking.

I would definitely recommend a chain oiler, I've run my Tutoro for around 1000km now and can't speak highly enough of it. Simple, robust, easy to use, cheap to buy. Check out tutorochainoiler.com for more info, it'll double your chain life for about US$40.

Sprockets I'd recommend would be only steel, aluminium ones will shear... but then again you probably know more than me on this one. JT Sprockets are the ones I favour, I believe they are OEM gear on a lot of bikes.

It's a 54mm tb and I'm using a dynatek ecu that they custom made for me.
The motor is 727cc's with 12.5.1 comp, I'm going to make a custom 14.1 slug for it down the road.

I'm still working all the bugs out of it.

I assume you'll be running race gas?

My goal with this project was to mod the engine to make monster power, have enough lights so it could be seen from space, run on pump gas (91 r+m/2), and not lose the legendary reliability. This is the result, 52 horse power and 170 watts pointing down the trail.



I have lots more pictures and I'm happy to share any of the details involved with building this bike. I did all of the work myself so everything will be a first hand account. I also have pictures of the head after porting and polishing if you guys would like to see them. I suppose I should start with a parts list.

Head:
Kibblewhite Black Diamond Valves
Mega-Cycles full race cam grind #173X12
Kibble racing valve springs w/h titanium retainers
Machined valve guides (required to accomodate .405" lift cam)
Intake runners ported and port matched, exhaust runners ported, matched, and polished.
3 Angle valve seats.

Intake:
41mm FCR pumper carb (cha-ching)
Uni-Filter and back-fire screen
9 filtered air box vents
Tossed the snorkle

Exhaust: It sets off car alarms and makes babies cry!
FMF SS PowerBomb header (wrapped)
FMF Ti4 Titanium muffler & mid-pipe

Cyl:
Re-Sleeved with an XRs Only sleeve (thicker)
JE 10.5:1 comp ratio 628cc piston

Electrical:
Baja Designs dual sport kit
Baja Designs 250 watt re-wound stator (it's the sh#t)
55/60 watt headlight
Dual 55 watt projector beam halogen off road lights shock mounted on a light bar of my design. They come on automaticly when the high beam is switched on.

I know I've left some stuff out but it's getting late and I need to call it a day. Thanks for checking out the thread, I'm pretty proud of how this bike turned out.

XRs Forever!
This bike is totally awsome. I am building a custom 1998 XR6 myself. I live in the Bay Area too (North Bay) and would like to hook up with you and check out your bike. I think you might like to see my bike too. Like you, I am very loyal to Honda. I would like to talk about some egine upgrades and electrical, Art

Back from the dead.

I'd like to see your Big 6.

Holy Shit!!!! That's a rippin' XR. So I've got questions. Where did you find a 742cc piston? Did you have to mill the cases to make it work? Nice USD coversion. What's the compression ratio? Dyno'd? Pump gas or race gas?

Really nice job on your XR. I knew I'd some day meet someone who spent more and did more on their Big 6 them I did. Well done. We need to go for a ride, the Santa Cruz mountains above my house have a lot to offer an XR pilot.

Well I crashed my XRR supermoto at 50+mph and was laid up for a while but I had some other health issues I had to deal with. However, I'm back now and at 100%.
