PM for details, pics, etc. First come, first served.
I'll take that if available, pm sent.

Thanks for all the replies, but the sweepstakes is over. lstzephyr was quick with the PM and takes home the prize. I just read his Baja report. Crazy. I really appreciate the effort that goes into some of these very detailed write ups. Have a Merry Christmas!

Uncorked, vented airbox (SRC perforated number plate) with a full Big Gun pipe.
68s pilot
178 main
B53e needle with clip on the 2nd notch
Primary riding area 30 ft - 4,000 ft.

Thanks!
the circuit that resides between the pilot and main is going to be the jet needle. i would try to drop the clip on the needle to the 3rd notch from the top. if it is still poppy and has the hesitation, try the 4th notch from the top. that is all i have for you.

Hyperpro Racing Shock for XR650R

Hi All,

Recently found an unused Hyperpro rear shock for XR650R for 150 bucks on a local 2nd hand marketplace.

Does anyone have experience with them? Worth the money and the effort, stick to the stock one or look for something else for the future?

As it looks I am marrying my XR650R, so stocking up on upgrade items in a good price should not be a bad idea, should it?

Cheers
S.

So is this the one with no reservoir? Emulsion? Don't waste your money buying a non-reservoir shock to replace a reservoir shock. That would be a big giant step backwards. Shocks cannot perform off-road (or on) without a res. The heat will kill them.

If you want a new rear shock, buy some shims and revalve it. The stock shim stack is horrific. In fact, I am not sure you even need to buy shims. The rebound stack is so over board that most (all) of the oil is pushed through the adjuster, which means the shim stack is not doing anything.

Research this thread and others, you will be able to have a "new" shock for a fraction of that sub-par non-reservoir piece of hud.

For $150 I'd go for it, very little risk and they might be great.

Big thread in the GS section about them, mixed reviews like every product:

So are you guys using Borynack's shim stack setting's on the shock? I am SUPER happy with his fork shim stack(and the mod was cheap too). I have not got around to do the rear yet.
