If it's the bolts I would just dremel 'em with a wire brush wheel. If it's the inside of the threads on the engine block I don't have the first clue what the safest way would be.

I took mine off a couple weeks ago for the first time. 99 model. I knew before hand I would be doing it so I did the dremel wire brush thing and then several rides in a row, after the bike cooled a bit but was still warm I hit them with PBBlaster. Did that maybe three times. All but one came right off and it backed the stud out of the head. Vice grips got the nut off. Be careful putting them back on. The dog bones look to be cast and the torque is only 12ftlbs. I don't know but it looks like it would be easy to break one.

+1.

I like to use regular old taps for cleaning internal threads.

John and guys. I am trying to remove built up rust on the studs. I am just going to replace the bolts with new ones. I need to figure out the best way to remove the rust while the studs are still on the bike? Ben

Rust Removal

Get an 8mm Die, opposite of a tap and chase the threads to remove the rust build up. Use plenty of lube

+1 But actual "thread chasers" are supposed to be better for anything already threaded..........the reason is if the part has been threaded already a thread chaser will restore the threads without cutting any new metal off......a tap or die will try to cut the threads again,taking off metal and actually can weaken the thread.......but in reality both will work well,,lots of oil,,turn in 1/2 turn-back out,in some more,back out slowly prevents breakage..

Yikes!!!

Do Not crank on the countersprocket bolts - touchy little guys......I've been getting new bolts every time I change the sprocket - just insurance.

Yikes what???

I told him to not go crazy on the CS sprocket bolts. Btw, you don't need to get new bolts every time you change the CS sprocket, just use equal portions of common sense and Blue loctite when you put them back on and tighten them.

That is what I was talking about. I used this brush in my dremel to reach in and clean off the rust before removing the nut. It's only 3/4 inch in diameter and got right in without damaging anything else.

Hi)
I'm looking for a 16 tooth Sprocket for my 2008 XR650L.
1 Anyone make a 16 for the XRL ? Brand, part # , cost?
2 Will it fit in stock location or ? Do I have to run it without case saver? or Do I have to get a aftermarket 1 or make 1?

Tks in advance for any info or links sent or posted Paul B

Go here: http://www.pbisprockets.com/uploads/Honda_Catalog.pdf
to page 7. I have both 16 and 17 tooth sprockets in PBI 386, which is the one for both the 650R and Honda NT650 Hawk. They fit snug, but will work. The 16 will fit without any problems, but with the 17, you will need to re-route your stator wires coming out of the case. With the 16, you should be able to run the case saver, but not with the 17. The ONLY place I've ever used the 17 is at Daytona, on the bike pictured in my avatar.

The kawi versys 16t will fit the XRL. I don't know if it's any cheaper than any others.

I did this only I cut the spacers to 22 mm and then used 7.5w oil (otherwise known as ATF) and it worked very well. I would recommend this 'setting'.

Xr's only baffle installation?

Hey guys,

I don't have my bike in front of me to answer this myself:

What's involved with installing the XR's Only exhaust baffle into their oval exhaust? Does it screw in? Do I have to remove the end cap? Any riveting required?

Any help would be pre-shaded!
