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?

I use break cleaning fluid on my WHITE side panels.Rub really well and it takes almost everything off.Give it a shot of plastic polish and good to go.( they won't be stock shiny though)

Pull the blade. Flat clean plastic (to keep the blade perpendicular to the surface). With the aid of a *dryer to heat the plastic to shine. Be careful.

All protests by referring Google translate

I don't really know what the actual weight will end up being since the new Lithium batteries will shave a few pounds off.



Me too, if the price is similar to what Baja used to sell them for. I don't want to pay more then the next guy but there is a lot involved when putting these things together.

I'll keep you all posted on weight and price as soon as I know more.
In the meantime, mine kicks over first kick every time, it's when it's vertical, hot out and your exhausted that makes you want the e-start.
I would be interested. Depends on price and weight.
