Hi guy's,

I ride a '97 XR 600R. The Engine will stall with no warning at low RPM when the engine is hot. Note: the engine was recently bored out to 660 cc's and a performance cam and a Wiesco piston (normal compression) was installed. I installed the larger main jet that came with the kit. Any ideas what can be causing this?

Here's some easy things to check out.

* try turning up the idle speed a little bit more
* make sure your fuel tank is vented and that the vent is working
* make sure your carb vent hoses are not clogged

My XR650L would do this when the pilot jet was just a little too small.

I don't know much but my XL600R did that and it was the stator....Have someone check the ohms output....

I would also check the engine temp while it's running. Those big bore kits can run quite hot. My buddies did and it had the same issue.
