Operative word was "out of oil." I suspect that if the PO had taken better care, I wouldn't have had a "ticking" noise either. Tho' if it is the decomp system, that should probably be fixed; easy to do the top end too . . .

So they ain't bullet-proof, but I'm thinkin' bwalsh takes far better care of his XR that my PO did . . . .
These things use oil? Vegetable or Olive?


On another note WTH is the "OP" supposed to be to the right of my user name??? Have I been hacked!

I assume this is a new feature?

Didn't mean to ignore your post Joe. Thanks for the generous offer but I wouldn't know how to act with all that raw power.

Its all good....
I will warn u now, once u ride it u won't be able to forget it.

I first test rode one over a year before i actually laid out the cash. I just couldn't stop thinking about its tendency to launch the front tire no matter how much i tried to tell myself i didn't need it.

Fair warning...u have my number Bob. Call when u want the fever!
