Question reward offered...

a case of beer (or tomatoes!) and all my gpx files (or grunt work at your place to swap the time) goes to the person that comes over and finds the problem w my XR electrical glitch.

It worked like a charm for a long time, and after pulling the subframe off all of the lights are hit and miss (mostly off) so i think it's a loose connection or something. I've been looking all through it and can't find any obvious loose connections or bad looking wires. I sluffed electrical 101 to go snowboarding. I found 2 connections coming right off the stator that were hot but tracing both direction yielded no sighted grounds...

Check your ground wires. Make sure there is a clean connection to whatever they are grounded to. No rust, no dust. Is it all your electrics or just some? If it is all, and they don't share a common ground, then the problem might be at the stator, battery, or rectifier - I think the XR has some sort of rectifier/voltage regulator that the current passes through from the stator, before it gets to the battery. That could be fried if it is all your electrics that are messing up.

Praise the Lord. There has been a miracle resurrection. MSH has risen from the hell
of home remodeling to ride again.

Welcome back unto the fold.

Really, where have you been???

I promised Sonya that I would give computers/forums a break... I have, since moving to Farmington given up TV, computers and video for guitars, kids and music. My band, Honey Pine has starting playing out and about and that is consuming some extra time. I have a very compulsive and addictive personality, so when I dive into something... it gets pretty deep. I did get my boy a little PW80 that he is doing quite well on. Farmington is great for that.

I'm psyched to attempt to make this repair and claim some of that reward...

Hick seems right on the money there and that is one more point, could be the stator as well making its way out. The Walrus had (has?) one lying around that was home-built rewound that I was going to put into my XR but never got around to it. It'll need a little soldering but would work and get you the extra amps...

New to me.

Well here is my new to me '01 Dakar on our first out of the city ride. Had a great time up Guardsman pass. Cool and a little rainy but a great ride.



Here we are at the bottom of Big Cottonwood canyon.





Up top it was a little cloudy.

Fun ride.

Kev has the leftovers of my XRR's....don't recall that the stator was in there....the BRP's are long gone from my garage....

But any rewards are welcomed........cheers

so, what did YOU do today? Here's what Warp9man and I did:

Asphalt to Monte Cristo, dirt to Garden City, fill up the tummy and the tank, dirt to Hardware Ranch, asphalt to Avon, dirt to Liberty, and then asphalt home again.





Food, friends, and fuel......that's what a dual-sport day is all about.
