Cheers Creaky ,I just spotted it mooching through the ads , thought it might work for someone on here..........I've just scored an FCR41 off a CRF450. Paid a whopping 25 plus post for a total of 30 all in

It's as filthy as a filthy thing from Filthville

Anyone done their own ultra sonic clean..........what size cleaner to get ? the one's I've seen on ebay are listed in capacity ( 2 litres etc ) , any advice ?

Cheers , Stu

just boil it in pinesol or a mild lemon juice and water soluton and let it sit overnight

unless you can find a real cheap cleaner this is almost as good

since you got the carb so cheap(are you sure its in working condition, slide, etc...) I would penny up for a cleaner...

anyways good score!

Hi Christian

I don't think we have Pinesol here in the UK. Is it pine disinfectant ?? I might try the lemon boil thing , I'll swot up on stripping it down , and have a go at the weekend

The carb was described as " believed to be working " , whatever that may mean. The throttle cables seem to operate OK , the slide snaps back . We'll see.....stand by for loads of questions in the future

BTW , Congrats to you and your wife on your addition to the family

Cheers , Stu

This is the ingreediments for Pinesol.

Ingredient
Pine oil 8 - 10%

Alkyl alcohol ethoxylates 3 - 7%

Isopropyl alcohol 1 - 5%

Sodium petroleum sulfonate 1 - 5%

Maybe you can compare them with what you have and find a close match. I have a 2.5 L ultrasonic cleaner from Harbor Freight. I can fit all the parts of a carb in it. Has tank heat too. Does a good job, but will stink the place up if you use the tank heat too much.

First of all, sorry for invading the sacred XR600R space with a somewhat XR650L related question...

This may be a long-shot, but I'm running a later-model 600R muffler on my XRL, and I am curious if anyone has had theirs tested for decibel level with the insert removed. The reason I'm wondering is that the riding areas around me have a 99db limit.

Anyone? Beuller? Beuller???

you could always "test" it yourself.

Pull the insert, ride it around and see if you get any complaints.....

no creaking from the frame twisting on the skidplate! HELL YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!

next on the list fix my floppy shifter!

soooo per many a recomendation here and on tt I put y shifter in a homemade vice and whipped out the old saw...made a nice long cut, as it took a while on the gap cleaned up the splines a bit and put teflon on the spindle...

then pressed the gap nice and tight, put on spindle, loctite the threads and bingo, bolt screws in nice and tight aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand

no more floppy lever! bam! stoked

I was having issues going into first because if the floppiness...I also bent the shifter out just a smidge

anywhoo

Ill be riding in the afternoon...hopefully I can take some pics...

thanks for all the tips guys

christian
I guess you put teflon on the spindle to make the lever a tighter fit? I would recommend using the loctite on the splines and teflon on the threads. I have heard this recommended previously somewhere. Cheers...
And...I would just tighten up the torx screws to stop movement of the skid plate..maybe some better quality screws required.
Just so you know I'm still lurking around here

hey roger hows it going?

no the torx where are tight as they could go, part of the reason one stripped...its a common issue Ive read about now...

when my bike would cool down you could here creaking...It bugged the hell out of me...

the real reason however to take the plat off was to insulate it more as the noise was bugging me...the foam works great(i tore up an old bar foam) and the rubber strips will help against impact...not that I do that a lot...

yeah Ill do the loctite on the spindle...well I did before but wanted to try the filing down the gap trick, I got some movement now...bit half as much as before...

p.s. it was my stator that failed...remember all that jazz about the pg and trigger etc? jajajajajajaja damn stators! xrs kill em!

thanks bud!

Christian; When you are ready to put the Loctite on, try to find some of the industrial shaft locking compound. This is a very thick material that is designed to help keep things from moving around on shafts and not the same stuff we use on bolts and studs. There is a big selection of stuff Loctite makes that fills gaps and hold things in place.

I used 638 retaining compound. This was on a smooth shaft rather than a spline but if the male and female splines are not too worn I guess it would help. If the teflon tape is taking up space from worn parts, that might be a different story. Could it be the shaft splines are harder than the lever causing the lever splines to wear out and fit poorly?

I've been riding it around town like that and no complaints from the law or anyone else yet, but they don't sit around with Db meters here. I downloaded a Db meter app last night so I'll try testing it with that from 20ft. Not sure if it's 20ft directly behind the bike, or 20ft at a 45* angle or what. I'll need to look that up.

yes this is the case, which is good and well designed by honda

the spindle is perfect..lever splines some are almost gone...

remember I got crashed into and the lever went spaghuetti and saved my shaft spindle...

anywhoo

638 it is

awesome

Please take this in the spirit intended, but the quieter our bikes are the better it is for all of us. Most folks in town can't tell the difference between a Harley with open pipes vs. Dual Sport without an insert. They just hear a noisy moto. You should be able to look up the test info to see how you are doing. Some riders have also added a turn down on the pipe to bounce the sound off of the ground first to help dampen some of the noise. The exhaust sound from a big 4 stroke will also carry farther than a 2 smoker for example.
I am sure my SuperTrapp is not the quietest pipe option, but I keep the packing fresh and have played with the disks and found the compromise between quiet and performance I can live with. Like to know how that app works.
