Wish you would get those sold
I traded for your old 03 from Greco and I always thought it would be cool to have an extra wheel set up with ice screws for winter driving. But my toy fund is cleaned out at the moment. Good luck with your sale.

I have had a extra wheelset for over a year. I think I have used them for 2 trips. i guess I really didn't need them. When I wanted to do some road riding I would just take one of my other bikes. Well I just sold that bike so now I am glad I have the other set. Because of the extra wheels I can take my time looking for a replacement bike. One set has 606's the other has mt90's. Ben

My Low beam headlight went out. The High beam still works. What bulb is used in the XRL?

I have a question for the guys running the Edelbrock Quick Silver Carb on their XRL's. What is your carb set on? I mean, what needle #, and what "click" position on the adjuster, on top of the carb? I had one on mine, but went back to the stock (daves mod'd) carb. I just want to get in the ballpark, and go from there. Now, my elev. is around 600-900ft. most of the time, Stock airbox, snorkel removed and opened up, K&N filter with the pre-charger cover-net thingy. Last time I had the carb out, I had put a #18 Needle in it. I have a few others to swap out if need be. Thanks for any input on how you'r running your Edelbrock QS Carb on your bike.

2001 XR650R skid plate no-go

I bought a Ricochet skid plate for a 2001 XR650R, because I saw some of you guys running them (much much earlier in this thread ) and they look like they offer better protection than the L version.

Mine did not fit and it was not even close to fitting. It wasn't a matter of holes not lining up- I was prepared to drill it, it was just the wrong shape. It did come with clamps, but it does not have the extra welded piece on the front (right under the frame oil drain) like I have seen in some of the bike pictures here. Looks like it might be hit or miss on these unless there is a specific model year to get... just thought I would let you all know.

I guess I'll see if I can exchange it for Ricochet's L version, unless someone knows of a better skid plate for the L.

I didn't know anything about the R plate, but my L's plate is not mounted if you need measurements or pics.

Ricochet revised the XR650R skid plate..... the new rev. apparently does not fit. I have the original design and it fits well.

Does the top end look ok.

So in an effort to stop my bike from using excessive oil I'm replacing two valve guides and seals that are leaking, now that I have the head off I took some pictures.

From some of the other pictures of rebuilds that I've seen my cylinder looks good. Also the carbon build up isn't too bad.

Just asking if it looks OK to anybody with more experience with this.

Also how do I compress the valve springs??

Thanks for any help.

With a valve spring compressor, here is my homemade job using a harborfreight C clamp and a small piece of electrical conduit with access holes drilled in the side:

Better yet get the piston and cylinder measured and see if it is still in spec. But hey, you wanted a high compression slug anyway, didn't you?
