It's a Clarke, 4.6 I believe. Same fit and better finish than stock with alot more range.

I never get tired of watching this thread! I bought my 06 XR650R in the crate this April and just now finally have all my parts in hand and the bike is currently getting everything installed at the dealership I work for. I've got the following going on as I write this:

Acerbis Cyclops headlight (red/black)
Clear LED turn signals front and rear (amber LEDs)
Acerbis LED rear tail/brake light
Hydraulic brake switch on front brake master cylinder
Universal Turn signal/horn/high low beam switch with integrated relay
universal horn
trail tech vapor speedo/tach

and the offroad stuff
Moose skidplate
Works connection rad braces
Acerbis Multilplo bark busters
Pro taper CR high bend bars
Pirelli Scorpion MT-21 tires

and the Edelbrock qwiksilver pumper carb
Should be ready to be plated by the end of next week!!!


I loved the bike before and I can't wait to be able to ride it without having to truck it to the offroad areas!:thumbsup:

I'll post pics soon as she's done...

Terraflex is awesome. See my review http://www.thumperta...794#post5282794

I removed the auto-decompressor because it would start decompressing sometimes at low rpms. It would also do it when trying to start and make it very difficult.

How did you know it was engaging at lower rmps? Did it stall the motor?
I ask because I get some awful rapping/clunking noise when I lug mine.

Thanks for the review on the tire, I might have to try one.

I did a ton of research on TT and called xrs only. The worst symptom was when it would stall out, it would feel as if I pull pulling the manual decompresser. This made it incredibly hard to start because there was no compression! I wouldn't go to the work of pulling it off unless you are dead sure it is the auto decompresser.

I didn't get an awful noise as you describe.
