Had a great shakeout on the XR last weekend at EFR outside of Bend, OR





Taco on his KTM530


Devin giving the XR a spin around camp






Unfortunately I burned through another battery. I finally determined that the old BD rectifier is bad. It was overcharging the battery. Should have the new one installed next week.

Taco and I are geared up for long memorial weekend out in Central Oregon again at EFR. We'll be camping at the China Hat CG if anyone want's to join us

Christian! Good luck on your engine rebuild. Did you ever pinpoint what was wrong? Hope you are riding soon! Thanks for the props. My tank is the ims 4.7 gal. Great tank and great fit! Have not run out of gas yet

A note on IMS tanks:

Beware of the fit around the compression release. I put on a used IMS 4 gal. and noticed that the release rubbed the tank when pulled. It may not have caused a problem, but I was afraid that on rough ground it might interfere, and keep the exhaust valve from seating.

The tank has a relief for the release, but it was not large enough. I heated the area, and enlarged the relief to cure the problem.

Because tank was used when I got it, it may have expanded with age, so if a new tank fits, it probably should periodically be checked for clearance.

Thanks for the head's up Ken. I've been through the compression release a couple of times since fitting the IMS 4.7G and there is no issue with the clearance of the compression release with the new casting. I have the compression release dialed in and I'm getting better at starting this big 6 every time I ride it. This is my first 4 stroke kick start and I need more practice

It's all in kicking from the right place in the rotation cycle. Easy peasy once you get the combination down.

wow interesting stuff...I bought an IMS 4GAL too, new...Ill keep the color a secret for the rebuild thread, but Ill for sure check the decomp issue out., that would suck big time keeping that valve open...yuck

eric unfortunately I did not find the ONE thing that gave me all the copper crap, I did though find out:

Crank was out of true...
frame oil tank was very dirty with copper flakes, maybe new maybe from last crank explosion
clutch oil seal the one that fits on the crank shaft was worn and slighty out of round
crank had almost maximum side to side play, and maybe washers and cage were about to explode.
Lastky I found out that one of my oil weep holes on the end of my counetshaft was stuck with some sort of metal, and would not budge...

comparing steve countershaft to mine, mine had bluing around that area, while steves was perfect.

who knows?

the end plugs were there...

So to answer your question I think it was a combination of things that contributed to my problem, not one single issue...

Also my pump was flowing well, so it wasnt that...

thanks for the cheers and help, hope I didnt hijack too much


Im getting really excited to finally have my bike back..

Im praying

cheers to you for your sweet bike man

Had a great weekend back on the XR out in Central Oregon. This time we camped in EFR near China Hat.

The weather seemed more like mid winter than late spring this weekend
