Maybe they don't want to be found by anyone still waiting to get their temperature dipsticks.

Totally off topic, and I assume most of you have heard about this already, but just in case - here's something pretty cool that happened today:


Check out redbullstratos.com for more about the jump. I can't seem to find a link to the freefall video anywhere, but it was pretty freaking impressive!

I had a great ride in the Ozark Mountains today!




I love the new sprocket ratio: 14/48.

After ripping around play riding on my XRL, I stop and see gas running out of the drain hose that comes out of the bottom of the carb bowl.

i assume that the floats are stuck and overfilling the bowl and this is the overflow drain. Correct? If so, why would they suddenly stick? Any ideas?

question about valves

Valves came in. get to lap them tomorrow. though i noticed the new ones i ordered (listing was for an XR600R but they share the same part number as an XR650L) have a diff shape to them. they are the same size, diameter etc but my concern is the recessed dome at the bottom.

the stock valves have a wider dome at the bottom. these new ones are mostly flat with a small dome in the center. will this be a problem? will I lose compression? gain it? actually my main concern is will this modify the squish bands negatively and cause the motor to be less efficient.



stock valve is obviously the one on the right.


Edit: they may look like diff sizes in the pic, but they are both the same size. these are the intake valves.

give the carb bowl a good tap with a rock or stick (ideally, a hammer if you have one on you while riding) to help unstick the float needle valve. it could just be dirty and need to be cleaned.

question about valves

sorry for posting this question twice but i want this to be at the top of the new page so everyone can see it easier.

Valves came in. get to lap them tomorrow. though i noticed the new ones i ordered (listing was for an XR600R but they share the same part number as an XR650L) have a diff shape to them. they are the same size, diameter etc but my concern is the recessed dome at the bottom.

Valves although look like diff sizes in picture, are identical in diameter / circumference. both are intake valves with the one on the right being the stock intake valve.

if you have an aftermarket tank check the check ball in the cap.
mine did this a few weeks ago and my little ball in my aftermarket cap was plugged and my tank hard as a rock forcing fuel past the float. just a possibility

this is why i bought the cyclops enduro light, i hated my stock light set up, it was always too high or too low and always got knocked out of sorts!
