happy 4th guys!

Dude ! That rear fender setup is dope !!! Is it pretty stable, most aftermarket ones I have seen offroad were flopping like a fish trying to fall off, through the whoops and rough stuff.

I do like the look though, more info would be great, (in-depth). I would like to make a suggestion, your next mod (mho) should be a set of Pro-Tapers CRF/High bends with the risers to adapt the 7/8" size. You will be seriously stoked with the improvement in feel and handling/responsiveness.

justicedone (Jim), thanks for the compliments. The rear fender is extra stable, but it took quite a bit of work to get it there. Both front and rear fenders are CRF450. I had to fab up a couple of brackets, and modify the fenders a bit...but eventually it worked out.

Yeah I agree. Bars are definitely on the list of things to do, I bet it feels soooo much better. These stock ones suck!

I plan on adding:

aluminum triple clamp, bars, pegs, HID, pumper carb, and stabilizer. I might need another job to fund it though, this stuff is f-ing $$$!!

you can see the front fender kinda in this pic.

the little plastic tank in the lower part fo the frame is a catch can for fuel coming from the carb... (a ufoplast part)

you must use it if you want to enter in closed supermoto tracks..

the headers are from Arrow (Italian brand of exhaust)

I don't know if they are available now..

they are built in stainless steel and they fit perfectly the stock muffler of the BRP.

Vee..looking at your lights and tank, are you trying to make up for something?

just kidding, not sure if you get the humor. Here in the states it common to joke about guys in big raised and lifted trucks trying to make up for a small weiner.

Ha ha

But your bikes look great, and I am sure those lights keep the hoppers out of your wheels, and the tank lets you explore the Island

thanks guys. as you all know the XR's have shit lighting i got tyred of hitting dirt corners blind at night.

plus our hoppers over here are called kangaroo's. ive ran over a tail of one once at 140kph :ride: thats close enough for me.

i live in the country so a long range tank comes in very handy here.

at the moment its off the road pulling it appart tomorrow to get the stator & pulse generator/exciter checked again 3rd time if its the problem last was 6mths ago for the later.

went out last monday morning to kick it over & no spark ?

has new coil & plug but still no go so pull the side cases off.

so what are these 650's like ive never thrown a leg over one yet.

planing on upgrading the dirt bike soon.

choices:

XR650R - reliable but heavy

husaberg 650sm ?

husquvarna 510sm ? or 610sm ? (must be in RED/WHITE )

TM530sm ?

ktm 990 adv's or 950 super enduro (pending on wife's say :ride: )

any advice on these other euro models apriciated.

      I've been trying to work out this low speed jetting issue for a while now and am running into some weird problems. It seems like most of the bikes I see with this mod are running either a 42 or 45 pilot and now I'm sitting at a 55 and still having lean running issues. The bike will cough through the carb at less than 3 turns under 1/4 throttle on fuel screw. Above 3 turns it will run fine off idle but the idle sometimes hangs.
      As the bike sits it's running 55 pilot, 85 pilot air jet, ELT needle (NCVT equivalent) three clips from the bottom, and 165 main jet. Above 1/4 throttle the bike runs like a champ and pulls hard throughout the rpms/throttle position.
      With the 55 pilot I can set the fuel screw ~3 turns out and I won't get any cough back through the carb under 1/4 throttle but it has problems with the idle hanging intermittently. Anything above 3 turns out and the idle starts to drop and the bike will stall. I'm around 500 above sea level.
      Carb has a new vacuum release plate o-ring, completely cleaned out, hot start air ports rtv'ed shut, rd powerbowl 2. Another thing is I bought the carb missing the whole tps sensor (might be an issue) but I tested the open part where it should be by spraying propane at the opening and had no change in idle speed. 
      I've got a 58 pilot on order but it just seems like that's big compared to everyone else. Any advice would be appreciated!

      I swapped in a cush wheel on my XRl so I have this Warp 9 wheel up for sale.  Straight, no dents.  The hub is drilled to accept the XRl sprocket.  Just bolt it on and go.  $375.00 shipped to the lower 48.

      Can anyone explain to me why the mid-pipe on certain XR600R/XR650L exhausts gets substantially bigger before attaching to the muffler? In most cases it is actually the same size as the muffler where it attaches. The XR's only mufflers are a great example of this and so is my White Brothers E series muffler. On the other hand you have the more traditional mid-pipe shape from companies like FMF for the same XR600R. The midpipe is relatively the same size from the header to the muffler connection. Even high performance street bikes use this approach so why is it different with the big single?
      I've been looking at replacing my White Brothers muffler lately because it doesn't have the discs nor the backing plate to make it USFS approved. I've been back and forth between the FMF Powercore 4 and the xr's only mufflers. I was wondering if the odd mid-pipe shape helps the XR's only mufflers flow better. From what I've read the XR's only mufflers are stupid loud and that would warrant a quiet insert for me and thus choking the high flow muffler, right?
      Also, for anyone wondering- the White Brothers header that was installed on my XR600R is VERY CLOSE to the same dimensions as an XR's only header at both the cylinder and mid-pipe connection.

      Hey guys, Just came across all of these old school slide shows. They take awhile to record and upload to youtube. But I'm trying to get the good ones done first. Full of info and fun to watch. This one is all off road models cr500r cr250r cr125r cr80r cr60r as well as xr200 xr250 and xl600r. Also there is a test at the end of part 2 so make sure you study hahah.
      part 1
      part 2
      I'm about to do another from 84 street bikes  going to be fun
      enjoy!
