If your unsure as to which spoke gauge you have or nipple diameter you need they can help you out. I recently rebuilt the wheels on my KTM and since they didn't have the spokes for my model listed so I sent them a sample and in a couple of days my new spokes arrived. I have been building a bunch of wheels this year using Buchanans stainless spokes and nipples.

XL600 for jgrady on the xl600 thread



Thanks for that info also Steve, What kind of time we talking for an amateur to lace a wheel , Just a guess, I was thinking taking the original apart then relacing the new setup, what 1/2 day for a beginner per wheel.

Yes you can reuse the OE hubs. Just tell Buchanan's what ya have and they'll set you up.

Sorta like this

Hi Mcma,

Can you give me some details on the rear disk? I want to buy one for my sumo setup and want to get one like the one in the pic.

Thanks,

Cumbacheech

Building a wheel takes me about an hour to lace and true it. Since I don't know your abilities I don't know how long it's gonna take you. I use a angle grinder with a cut off wheel to disassemble a wheel. Quick 'n easy.

That disc is an EBC or Galfer I think. It's been years since I bought that one.

This one for sure is an Galfer that I got from seller ATVUNLIMITED on E-Bay. Here is a front that have listed. Item # 230600378538 . Send them an e-mail and they will get it for you.

That right there is a good advertisement for an auto clutch. Especially for guys like me who now suffer from peripheral neuropathy. I used to ride such single track trails in my youth, but lately my clutch hand isn't able to last too long on the slow stuff. Rehab got some feeling back, but not enough.

Unfortunately, I recently read that Revloc is going out of the auto clutch business, before developing a XRL version of the dyna ring. I don't think we will see a reasonably priced auto clutch for the old Honda XRs afterall.

Does is measure hot oil leaving the head or cool oil entering? The jets I have (160 & 165) are what came in the DynoJet kit, which also has the adjustable needle clip (currently set med-rich). The pilot is a 55 and the airscrew is 2.25 turns out. Uni filter - FMF header & Q2.

The DJ instructions said to start w/ the 165 and I did, but replaced it w/ the 160 chasing problems that ended up being the fault of the stock pilot jet (a 52, I think) and never went back. Have I been roasting the motor ever since? Is that enough to get the oil to 275 or is the Vapor reading unrealistically high? Around town it reads barely over 200, so it appears to recognize cool temps when they occur.

Thanks again for any help.

BTW - I think "quenching" is the term for the cooling effect of a rich condition in a gas engine.

When in "bypass" mode, it opens an additional path for the oil - one that has less resistance - so the oil avoids the cooler by convenience. Look down the tubes in the bypass as you turn the dial. The flow to the cooler is never interrupted. The Jagg valve simply turns 2 parallel lines into an "H". If your cooler busts a leak, the "bypass" will hold back nothing.
Good to know!! When I read about the bypass I thought the intention was to bypass it during colder weather when you didn't really need it. I can see how it was still work but I didn't know it wasn't a "true" bypass. Thanks!!

The way I've got mine hooked, I could use one of the hoses that is on the bike and just zip tie it away from the engine to ensure it doesn't melt. So I don't need to carry a spare. I had thought of that when I installed it.

Thanks guys, that ride defiantly took some life off the clutch. The XRL is a BRP but it will go any where my only real complaint is the the huge gap between 1st & 2nd gear, it didn't really bother me until I got a XR600r now it drives me crazy.
