Thanks for verifying the easy installation, Ken. It appears PBI manufactures the Moose Racing, XR650R C/S sprockets. After measuring a variety of sprockets, I discovered the PBI sprockets are thinner than some other XR650R C/S sprockets, and also have a deeper chamfer. Therefore, installing the PBI/Moose Racing C/S sprockets requires less "persuasion."

Since I don't have a carb in front of me here at work how about pulling the float bowl to see if some of the screw is exposed to grip with needle nose pliers. I'll know more in an hour when I get home.

There may be a little stub of the narrow part you can grab with needle-nose pliers, or you might be able 6to use a sharp pick and rotate the screw out little by little.

Carb off and securely supported on the bench may turn the impossible into the easy.

If you want to match the deal I'll ride red with a huge.....grin.


The XRL crowd is awesome and I don't expect I'll find another group as amazing as this one.

Best Regards and I'll make sure Holly invites you all to my impending funeral.

I looked at a XRL carb. I have a real small needle nose pliers and I think it would be able to grad the stub of the screw and get it out.

Good Luck.

Sorry. I won't be attending the funeral. I think I will have Jack swing by and kick you in the nutz just for good measure. Enjoy the DR and stay the fuck out of the motor. OR ELSE!!!

Thanks

Yeah it's the mixture screw in the picture. I'm just wondering how I get a replacement since it comes attached before Dave's mod. Any ideas?

I did the same thing ( only because PO let the thing corrode ). I made a narrow chisel out of a small screw driver. Ground a cutting edge on it. Used it to form a flat blade slot in the soft brass that was left of the idel mixture screw. I guess the tapping loosened it up because when I put a flat driver in the formed slot it backed right out. Honda sells the screw.



I know what you are thinking, Finially a post worth something from Fritz.

It's been a bit rich (for 7 years) I keep thinking the minute I adjust it NY will up the gasohol content and then where it is now would be perfect...

I'm thinking you should do Dave's Mods while your'e in there!




There's my irrelevant post for the day.

If only they taught this as standard curriculum in school? People should know the basics of what moves them!
