maybe if you want to play around with different makes of tires(i do and no issues) is use a conti tkc 80 upfront that lasts a MILENIA and a t63 out back...

both tires have very very similiar rounded profiles

the benefit of the tkc upfront is you have closely spaced squared knobs of the same size and pattern that allow you to carve twisties upfront...my klr rocked with the tkcs in the twisties.

no can do with the t63 or ac10

the contis tkc are AN AWESOME street tire

why do you think all the beemers used to have them stock from the showroom floor! they also last a long time

cheers again
I just installed the T63s and I'm very disappointed with the front tire. There is hardly any tread on it at all. I should have gone with the MT21 up front.

Need advice, possible problems on new xr650L

Just bought new 650 a month ago, has 230 miles. Installed powercore 4, powerbomb header, smog block off kit, uni air filter, and fmf jet kit. Ground the tab off fuel screw and adjusted properly, bike would not fire. Changed the plug with factory plug, and noticed there was no gap in fouled plug that I pulled out. Installed new plug, bike busted off and ran for maybe 10-15 seconds then died. Wouldn't start again. Pulled plug and noticed it too had no gap now. What is closing the gap on my plug. Bike ran flawlessly pre-upgrade. Didn't touch interior of motor. Perplexed and worried that it could be bad news. Any help definately appreciated.

In case you haven't, make very sure you have the right plug. It seems like it's too deep in the cyl. I can't imagine what else it could be folding a plug like that.

chance you didn't have the washer on the plug when you put it in?

Once upon a time I was on a ride with a fella on a XR600 and his plug kept closing up. After the third time or so he pulled the plug and kicked the bike over a few times and a stone came flying out the plug hole. Don't ask how it got in there but it did. Once the stone was removed the bike ran fine for ever.

I've measured a few, XR650R C/S sprockets. In my experience the PBI sprockets are thinner, and have a deeper chamfer. It appears PBI also manufactures the XR650R C/S sprockets for Moose Racing. Therefore, I always recommend either the PBI or Moose Racing, XR650R C/S sprockets.

Definitely interference of some kind. I'm guessing a washer got dropped inside or something fell down the intake while you had the carb off (got kids?). 30 years ago I had giant Webers on my VW with velocity stacks like funnels. Someone in high school auto shop dropped a 6mm nut down one and every so often I'd here a gunshot metal sound. Popped the left side off and there it was jammed in the valve guide.

Any advice on the best way to install either a USB charger or a dedicated iPhone charger (and iPhone mount) to my 2002 XRL?
