2004 Xr650l Smog Plate

13 posts in this topic

I made my own also. All I did was remove the metal pipes from the front of the engine and cut the pipes off, leaving about a 1/2" of pipe on the flange.

Then I flattened the end of that 1/2" in a vise and brazed the end.

It worked great and didn't cost me anything but a little time.

For the vacuum line I plugged it off. The canister got removed and the hoses going to the breather got removed and the holes plugged off.

i just cut out a plate that looks like the piece off the tubes... drilled 2 holes for the allen heads and i was done.... it was really easy.. it just needs to block off those 2 holes. it can be a square even... no big fab job... i did it with a grinder and a drill.

I also just put the old ones up on a piece of bar I had layin around, drew an outline, cut/drilled and used silicone gasket sealer and locktite.

Just finished it a couple hours ago actually.

If you can, I'd try and do it myself too because if your buying the kit for insrtuctions, haha forget it, Ive seen the instructions on a friends kit and it was

a worthless half legible copy job. A couple sites online have great pics to follow if you need em.
