My problem is that I had drilled out the rivets on the stock fender clip (the one on the airbox), and cannot find the clip anywhere in my garage. Any chance anyone has an extra they might be interested in selling?

Regards,
XJ
if no one has it, and I suspect they won't, http://www.southco.com/browse/dzus-q...ners-7345.html should get you closer.

Thanks for the link.........Interesting

I'm still searching.....has to be there somewhere.

I still have the DZU's portion, as I had riveted it onto the airbox when I removed the "perch". I might have to get inventive with the metal brake, and try to build the "perch" myself.

Thanks,
XJ

Barrons engine failure

The main reason Barrons motor failed was he didn't have the oil pumps metal oil line in the oil pump sockets all the way and the line was sticking up to high and the oil pump drive gear rubbed a hole through it..

That explains way the motor went 400 miles and then failed, the gear was rubbing against the line until it rubbed a hole through it and puffffff....... I know it's not funny but all you guys need to make sure the line is seated in the sockets properly and the o-rings are good also so it doesn't happen to you.
I also found the crank seal was pinched and the o-ring was missing between the case and pump.

I have a picture of the hole in the line if someone wants to post a picture for me...

Well at least my worries about over cooling the engine oil with the big fin head has been put to rest.

The motor will smoke most over 600cc+ bikes (bar the 690 Katoom) and will easily see over 100mph+ on the clocks, even on a MT21/D908RR tyre mix

I doubt any of that would be possible on a XR650L.................sadly
Try the mileage math again using US gallons instead of UK gallons. No wonder you claim 20% more mileage. Then you lie about the weight.

Why not just stay on the XChallenge thread and tell your lies?

I have heard good things about Galfer pads and may try them out soon. They come in three varieties. Black(semi-metallic carbon). Green(kevlar ceramic organic). Gold(sintered HH advanced ceramic compound). I think the black is closest to oem. Maybe someone will chime in who has used these as an option.

I tried the EBC Carbon/Kevlar whatever the hell they are and I may as well have had a piece of Oak floor board in the caliper. Bought front and rear pads. They are TERRIBLE. Absolutely no feel, don't grab worth a dam. I got a return authorization but they are still on the tool box. I did buy EBC sintered metallic and they are the ones that are closest to OE in my opinion.

EDIT...And this was with a set of BRAND NEW EBC rotors.

Ebay, semi metallic, two sets front and rear, $30-ish, that was my experience with the EBC gee whiz pads too.
