Engine hestitating after mods...

21 posts in this topic

OK, so I did the Uni Filter and the Snorkle removal and installed a FMF powercore 4 pipe on it, took it out and the engine overheated immediately, RPM was too high, so I adjusted the carburation thing to idle at lower rpms. Anyhow, I let it warm up before the ride and while ridding I notice hesitation at acceleration, it's like a small BURP and then it disappears.

I was reading a magazine this morning and found a product that eliminates this problem, it's like an acceleration pump cover or something, my questions is this something that could take care of the problem or is it re-jetting necessary for my bike?????

Thanks in advance for your comments on this!!!!

it is important to rejet after these mods to avoid a lean condition. Adjusting the carb air mix or idle adjusters should only be done once the jetting is done and only for very fine tuning.

check out this sites jetting guide-

it helped me out alot.

Your bike is way tolean and will be damaged real fast if you ride it like that. When you do any intake/exhuast work you must rejet.

What bike?

Places to look for the XR650R:

the 650r does not have a acceleraton pump so that product will not work.

that for the FCR carb found on most 450's

If you un-corcked the bike (removed the rubber and plastic plugs in the air box, changed or modified the intake insulator, HRC muffler tip / after marker muffler or drilled out the stock muffler tip to 2") and did not change the jetting from the Stock 65s pilot, 135 main, b53d needle to a 68s or 70s pilot, 170~178 main and a b53e needle then you are way leen. Scary lean. melt down your motor lean.

MAD MEX,

You should take the carburetor off the XR650R and save it. Throw the rest of the parts away. :)

OK so I saw the link, looks like something I could do but I have never done carbs in my life, Any chance you live around the LA area and help a brother out get this done????? I'll start ordering the parts, and also, is there a kit with all these parts ready to be shipped from any vendor??? I'll be interested. BTW are all the parts mentioned in the link OEM or after market??? THANK YOU, your reply was truly appreciated!!!! :D

The carburetor insulator (intake boot between the carburetor and engine) can be modified to be just like the hop up one you buy. That will save you money. Take it off the bike take the square tin out of the center and then cut the rubber out leaving a 1/8" ridge. You can use the stock needle for now but, you have to raise the needle one clip (This meens you need to drop the clip on the needle one spot) You can get the pilot and main jet at any Motorcycle shop and the b53E needle. Make sure you get a 68s or 70s (70s is better for where you live). You allready have the exhaust fixed. I live about 60 mile away, where the 60 freeway and the I-10 meet, North of Beaumont.

i picked up all the parts from baja designs except for the 68s - i got that from the local dealer. my bike ran the best with the 68s pilot, 172 main, the 53 needle in the middle with the HRC tip - i played with the 70s and tried the 175 thru 180 main jets if you open up your airbox go with a 175 or 178 main :)

i live in mission viejo area if you need any help or get a hold of bruce (BWB63) he has been a great help over the last few years with my bike - hell i am still running his stock pipe :D

Call me, and drop it by as soon as you can. Or I can pick up your bike in Rialto in an hour. 3pm now.

You asked if I live by the 243 in your PM.

I do live in Cherry Valley not far from the 243. My Dad lives on the 243, right after you pass the Vista Grande Ranger station, after that cool "S" turn and then you hit wide open on the straight away and then lay it way over to the right. A screem on that bike of yours :) Got rid of the GSX and now I have a ST1300 for the wife and I.

It's no big to fix you up and then go for a ride :D

This frikin site is the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OH you better believe that!!!!! I went down to Bruce's last night, this guys is freaggin awesome, not only he uncorcked my bike but went through the whole bike mechanism with me, he was just off the hook!!!!! Bruce, I take this opportunity to thank you for all your help, and honestly, after you took it out for a little spin and saw how you handle the PIG, I was just looking forward the day I get to ride with you!!!!!! I came home around 2 a.m. and couldn't wait to jump on it and go around the block, "unreal" the difference this jetting and uncorcking was going to make on the bike.

BRUCE thanks for all your feed back on the bike, you really know what you're talking about when it comes to this PIG.

R is for racing........ :):D:)
