is it ok to run my bike at wide open throttle in 5th gear down the highway. as of right now ive only been to 80 mph on it but im scared of messsing up my engine btw i have 14/48 gears

. it seem like my old 83 xl600r would do like 105 mph topped out. and was never scared of blowing her up.

Thanks for the input I'll look at the rubber intake boot, doubtful that's it. How do I know if I have the mixture screw adjusted properly. I'm at about 2 full turns.

The bike runs great and starts great, just this one problem.

Thanks again


Oh yeah! 2 wheels!

tell us more about your bike...

80 is low, 90+ is stock...anything over 100mph is pretty good especially with knobbies....

Im just under 100, not quite the ton

bummer! jajaja

Started first kick....no lights...measured voltage at the ni-cad battery....nothing....AC/ 6 volts....rev it up....2 volts a/c...

Un plug the stator, stator shows 14v then up to 50v ac revved up, so that is good....plug in JUST the regulator/rectifier....stator volts drop to 6v a/c...

I am quite sure this baja regulator is toast...the battery is for sure.


Thanks Steve, I love KNOWING it will start up first kick when you put the motor together

It is a nice bike, too bad i gotta sell her.

Roost Boost?

What do I have here hiding under my tank?


Here is a closer view upsidedown for easier reading...


So how do I know if it is still working, or how it is supposed to work?

Roost Boost

I pulled out my very old White Bros catalog and I didn't see it so I just searched for Roost Boost and this is one of the things I found:

the roost boost is nothing more than a simple RC,resistor capacitor, circuit. The system basicly produces a more consistant spark which is supposed to help the low end, but if the bike is tuned correctly the roost boost does nothing. There are a few other variations in names, I have one on my 406, and had a spare so i cut it apart and found a 2200 ohm resistor connected in series to a 400 micro farad capacitor, guessing on that are it was really hard to read.


BTW... I have one on MY XR600 from way back when.

How about a JE 10.5/1 CR piston? I have a spare XR cylinder I could get bored for ya. This and the CW 628 piston should wake your slug right up. I even have a spare XR head that can get the CW love. Port 'n polish, big fins,TI spring kit, the works. It's only money honey.

is that je slug he famed over comped piston? unlike the wiseco which is under comped,

I read about a guy having a 10.5 in his bike and it was actually more comp around 11+ and he was having pinging issues

Im already getting the valve springs, ti keepers, seals etc...from cw right? anything in the mail yet? you meant 628 cam right?

anywhoo,

I have my head that already has new kibblewhites, valve guides, seals, etc...it is not ported or anything

wanna trade some stuff? I got cylinders too...

Id love some headwork that I could use with my old stainless headers, that would be sweet huh?


anywhoo

shoot me a message with the deals!

well see

cheers

Yes I meant cam and yes again the JE piston. I forgot that the Ti springs are on order. Nothing happening with the parts yet.

2 cylinder/piston sets used in trade?

well heres the deal, I have 4k mile piston at the most on my stock 87 long skirt piston, oem rings...on the bike now

I have 2 cylinders, one the 88 with crap sleeve job but stock, and the one you sent me last time around...

I also have a prox used piston with about 2k miles on it

the prox is ok

the honda piston set is in excellent shape...

the cylinders are both good

I also have the cam and rocker set in trade for the cw stuff

If any of this interests you in trade plus some cash cool

if not Ill have to hold off and only get the CW stuff

maybe just the je piston a nd cylinder? cant afford the port and polish dont think...

you know the BAR! jejeje $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

cheers bud

Next time you come up this way bring the excess stuff. If you do want to do the JE piston let me know. I bought this cylinder just for a spare. You know me and my SPARES. I got spares for my spares.
