XR650R Fork vent valves??

4 posts in this topic

Does anyone run or suggest running those handy little fork vent valves on my XR650R forks?

I saw some on Ebay I considered buying but I don't really hear of anyone using them on the XR650R's.

Thanks in Advance....

I thought about it, but I don't have money to toss at non performance upgrades.

I just use a screwdriver and do it.

Not that much pressure builds up.

I have been running them on all of my bikes. However, the forks should be fully extended (on a center-stand) before you release the air/ press the button.

Gene Lane runs them on his Baja race bike. I instald them. You have to have them in front of the bars and they won't work with all top triple clamps, stock was a yes but, I can't remember what Gene is running.
