I'm talking about the two cables on the circular thinger on the right side. Nothing fell that I'm aware of. I disconnected the bracket itself from the carb if that's what you're referring to?

I don't know if i have to pull out the entire carb to get to the jets now, or if I can easily access them and clean them with the carb still partially attached. Not sure what I'm looking for, and the diagram is s bit complex that I'm looking at.

It would be better to take it out, it will make the rest of the job much easier. On the left side there is a black cable that threads into the carb like a bolt, that is the choke cable and that is the one with the little piece on the end.

If all you want to do is clean the jets, you can leave most of the hoses in place on the carb.

If you have the throttle cables off, the only other things connecting it to the bike are the intake (the black rubber piece that connects the carb to the engine, the throttle cable I mentioned earlier, the fuel line that is on the left side of the bike (just follow it from the gas tank) and the rubber thing from the airbox. All of those are easy, and one they are off take the carb out, turn it over remove the four screws on the bottom of the bowl, remove the bowl (the outside bottom of the carb) and you should see your float and jets. Be careful here, the float has a hinge pin that likes to fall out and hide... there is also another thing attached to the float that may fall out or off so be careful of that too.

I just thought about it, and if you go here, there are great pics of what you will be looking at, along with one of the best mods for the bike....

look at pics 9 and 10

Thank you sir! I'll check into it. I'm going to finish up tomorrow. It's only 42 out right now in Michigan and dropping cause its getting late. My ass is starting to freeze from sitting on the garage floor for too long. tomorrow ill finish it up. I just unscrew the jets to clean, right? Should I clean anything more than just the jets and the bowl? I got a huge can of high pressure gumout carb and choke cleaner for use. Lol.

Btw, is the gasket for the bowl typically reusable? I ask this only because the Honda dealership down the road is full of the not so nice, and I know it'll take at least 4 days to come in.

Be sure to wear safety glass when using the carb cleaner, that shit burns bad in the eyes

But thanks for the advice! Its surprisingly difficult to get a clear answer from my dealer as to what exactly has changed (now I understand why... :P )
Cobus

You have to think again, we do not have the market for these bikes second hand, you will most probably not get a bike any a good condition.

Unless someone is selling their 2010 + model, then you have to ask yourself why are they selling it. Bikes like these are usually driven hard here.

I looked at this forum long before I bought one.

49k and all my mods so far stands at 12k, so for 61k I have a new bike modded to MY liking. There is nothing else out there that can even remotely compare.

XR fleet is growing in RSA

Regards

Jaco

Noted. Thank you. I'll do that... I got some 5.3million SHU hot sauce in my eyes once. Hotter than police grade pepper spray. At least that was organic. :X

New or used

I know there are good deals on used ones (I bought my '99 for $1K), but there's something to be said for new.
