Lets review this a little more.

You have

2 weeks supply of carbs

or

1 a month plus a couple just in case of a break down

or

1 a year for 14 years

or 1 a day for 2 weeks or 14 day which ever you prefer.

Anyway you look at it,you'll never have a carb issue.Rebuild a few and swap out when a problem occurs.

Not yet, but sure. Can let you know when I get to that point. Thing is, the one bike we've already torn down had a Mikuni on it that I sold a while ago, and the other two bikes are still complete/running. Might just swap-out for FCR's sooner than later though. Guess there's really no reason not to. Will have one 600 carb and one 650L carb.

Designed these CRF conversion tripleclamps for the XR650R and now am trying to figure out what I need to change to make them fit the XR650L. Going to run late-model CRF forks on at least one of the bikes, but want to adapt XR650R forks to a few of the others.













Left to Right: XR650L, XR650R, CR500, CR/F

I am sure there are a bunch of XRL owners who would be interested... I know I would be! Would be nice to have the steering stops, maybe even a spot on the triple clamp to attach the key switch...

The more I look at the gas tank, the more I've come to realize that I absolutely hate the way it looks. But it's so hard to throw away all the work you put into something like that, just kept working on it, and re-working it. Trying to save it. Even though it clearly wasn't working. So I'm done with it. But it's not all time wasted. Instead of starting over and hand-shaping another tank, I'm just going to have this one laser-scanned. That will give me the basic geometry of the underside of the tank and the areas I modified to increase the volume. From there I can re-shape the tank in Solidworks and that will be a lot faster/easier. Well, maybe not faster or easier, but I've been trying to improve my surface modeling skills and this will be good practice. The most difficult part of the whole process is going to be turning a CAD model into something tangible. Have got a friend with a CNC router and am thinking that we'll have a plug made out of wood. But I'm super busy with other projects right now and my friends are getting anxious. They want to ride their bikes. Wondering if maybe you guys can help me pick out some tanks to use in the meantime. Any suggestions?

i'd just use a plastic stock or aftermarket tank if it was mine.
if you want a great look, a 60's or 70's yamaha 2-stroke tank looks slick but has little capacity

The 70s Monoshock tanks would also have a wide enough tunnel to fit the frame/tank and still have clearance.

GO to the Yamaha page on Justgastanks.com and enlarge the pictures. The ITs and YZs with the triangle shaped swingarms had the shock under the gas tank , so the tunnel of the tanks are wide.
