Must admit that looks nice, but double the cost of a new XR650L

I like the simple rear suspension set up Too. Good dealer support as well.
But, would you want to do a SHOOTERDAVE style fifty state tour on one of these? Or even spend all day on that bike?

The saga continues..

So as stated before the mechanic (me) and the cam are retarded

So modded my timing gear to get about 7 degree of adjustment or more both ways +/- from zero, man is that steel HARD the carbide burrs in my die grinder worked great but a hand file or average drill bit will only scratch it.

So several cam degreeing runs later I got this

Intake 103.25 Exhaust 104.75

cam card

Intake 104 Exhaust 105.5

Looks legit to me within 1.25 deg on the worst difference so time to tear it down for some more clay on the piston.

There was no way in hell I was going to remove the cam sproket so devised a way of getting the cam and sproket out without removing the bolts (bit of a pita but worth it). re clay the piston and re assemble the top end rotate 360 cam degree and tear down again.


What I found was not unexpected but not what I wanted either, the Exhaust valves now have about .150 clearance BUT the intakes are at bout zero zilch Nada

EDIT

So not trusting myself I checked everything again cam timing and piston valve clearance the cam timing was spot on from the previous runs but the cay check showed .90 Intake and .105 Exhaust so i dd it all AGAIN
sure as shit it came out with the same valve timing and the .105 Exhaust .90 intake... must of spun the motor backwards the first time I did the clay check sence indexing the cam.

Thanks for the help guys!

here is a pic of the cam sprocket

Suspension

Ok

Advice needed

me and my kit for a 3 day trip weigh 330lbs

I am thinking of upgrading the rear shock with a custom made 13.5 spring from Cannonracecraft

Then the front springs from procycle - Race Tech Fork Springs - http://www.procycle.us/bikepages/xr650l.html

Which strength must I take , .6 or .7 or .8

Regards

250lbs wet less fuel. So how light can a xrl be made...

I wonder how much a 60hp CW engine done to a new XLR with a CRFX fork swap and a revalved shock would cost.

All day? Sure.

There are a bunch of different seats available. Was SHOOTERDAVE on a stock seat???

A fifty state tour would be a bit much. That tour on a XRL is too much for me also.

You started this tangent..

Just look at all the touring mods being done by your fellow inmates right HERE!

If you want to have fun off road try something like this! 220 pounds dripping wet at 35 TWO STROKE HP.

So out with that bastage piston and off to the machine shop
I thought that might be the end result after setting the cam correctly.

I have had the same issues when changing valve timing with a big cam and a high compression piston combo. It's all part of building a custom engine combo.

I would probably have .110"-.120" removed so cam chain stretch isn't an issue, since it will cause retard the cam slightly.

I did mine with heavier springs only. (I'm 300) I HATE it. I'm going to send them to be re-valved over the winter and see if that helps. I want to say my shock is 12.5 and my forks are.68's. I will beat you into oblivion on rocks and gravel. I haven't even been riding my bike because it's so miserable.
