Yeah!

Medisyn,
Like everyone else, I'm totally stoked for you. Mine was having similar issues and like yours, it was fuel starvation. I had to think about it for awhile. I hadn't messed with mine like you did, but had same symptoms. Occasional pop, but no life. For me it was further upstream (petcock). Because of their size, the kick starter is geared to not spin them fast enough, so margin for error is less. I know how they can take it out of you trying to start, so it had to be like a cool breeze when it finally did.

Congrats.

RZ Rob

Normal for a wet clutch. Its because of the London-dispersion forces and polar bonding of oil molecules on the clutch surfaces, I think. Really I just made that shit up, but it is normal.

Thanks guys! Now I just have one more issue, leaking left side fork. Anybody in the bay area already have the tools or have made them? So close to having the piggy fully operational!

Also where are you guys ordering your rad fans from?

Haven't been riding my XRR lately. Clutch was slipping. I replaced the original clutch bushing thing, but that wasn't the issue. Seems I might need a clutch...on a budget. Noticed a bunch on ebay for around $60. many or Tusk brand with springs? Anyone have any experience with those?

There was a thread on thumpertalk awhile back on the tusk kits. From memory I think everyone liked them.

Congrats! I love my 600R to death, but the 650R is a monster and handles so damn well for me!

Before you replace the clutch pack try adding one steel clutch plate to the bottom of the clutch stack. That will likely take care of the slipage problem. http://www.xr650r.us/clutch/ , see Question #2. I've done that mod to two XRRs and never have replaced a clutch.

I added one metal disc but these four springs are too weak. I ordered Barnett and want to test how it works. I already had a XR650L with established Barnett. It is certainly worse than stock but I hope that will hold.

Anyone tried DP clutch?

Hey, keep this forum neat please, no need to tell us where you shave her! Besides, let me guess, she's from Bulgaria or thereabouts?

Got a Q for you okes.
My sidepanels have some light scuffing marks from a Giant Loop bag on, which I tried to polish out with 'Brasso', a brass-polishing liquid which I have used on perspex before with good effect.
Not now on this soft plastic! All I got is a non-shining surface all over, not matt but dulled, and the marks are still quite visible.
How do I do better, ie remove the marks and get my shiny panels back?
