I had the same trouble with my XR650R. Turns out the float in the carb would not seat properly and the bike had a leaky petcock. As a result, the engine would regularly flood and bike would...

Wet, a wr250R is right around 300 pounds. A 690 Enduro, wet is a ~20 pounds more. That may not sound like a lot, but I every pound counts when you are muscling through slow off-road sections. If...

I'm confused here. Besides being both motorcycles and having high price tags, the wr250r and the 690 Enduro are very different bikes. Compared to the wr250r, the 690 Enduro is large, heavy, and has...

Without hearing it its kind of hard to tell. But, given your description (e.g. noise only occuring when the bike is moving), I would not be surprised if it was just noise from the front brake pads...

Well, as pointed out by another poster, a 600-650 cc super motard is light enough that a single disk is fine for the street. If you want more braking power up front, you can always swap in a bigger...

So... why not buy one of the recent 600-650 cc thumpers and turn it into a motard with a 17 inch spoked wheel set? Something like a KTM 690 or perhaps a BMW X Challenge.

So I've become the owner of a new to me 2001 XR650R Supermoto. The bike has been uncorked, and is apparently setup with the stock carb, FMF 4 Powercore Header / Muffler, after market filter. Since...

Okay, looks like I'll have to try those fixes. Does anyone have a link to a page that explains how CV carbs work? What can I say; I don't know fuel delivery systems very well.

Carb and clutch woes?

I'm having trouble with the carb on my XR650R. Not only is the bike hard to start, but after a few kick start attempts gas comes pouring out of the overflow / drain tube. I'm guessing the carb needs...

Will Sea foam safe damage plastic tanks?

I've used sea foam on my street bike to great effect. I've been thinking of running some through my XR650R that is fitted with a plastic, after market 4.5 gallon tank. Will the sea foam additive...

Melted my pants on the header?

I was riding my XR650R this weekend and noticed a acrid smell that prompted me to stop the bike. Turns out the textile over pants I was wearing came in contact with the header on the right side of...

I looked at the FAQ before; but I sort of ruled out the flasher relay as the front turns signals work fine (e.g. blink). From the wiring diagram, both the front and rear turn signals are tied into...

Problem with Bajadesigns Dual Sport Kit

Hmm that might be an idea. Once I got it running the carb seemed dialed in; no flat spots and no exhaust pops when coming off throttle (and this is with a FMF pipe / header). Took some time to warm...

Kick starting a big single?

I picked up a Honda XR650R (4 Stroke, 650 cc single) that's been converted to street use. I must be a weakling or something because I can't get it to kick over consistently. As bump starting it is...
