my throttle tube is stock and seems slight bit shorter that a regular mx/trail bike tube.
Stator is stock. Throttle tube is not. Throttle is off of a CRF. The CRF throttle pulls full throttle with less rotation than the XRL throttle.

As far as updates goes I removed the anodizing off the fork tubes and front rotor (not a fan of gold ) using good old oven cleaner (some really nasty shit) and a aluminum bristled brush. polished the fork tubes and think ill paint the center of the rotor black to match the rear.



Pre oven cleaner


Let soak for about 10 min


After scrubbing it with the brush a while (wear gloves i cant stress enough that is some nasty shit) tada most of the anodizing is gone


Here is one of the fork tubes, like it allot better
Oven cleaner's awesome. I have used it several times to strip anodizing off of archery parts (easy way to turn a hunting sight into a polished tournament sight) You gotta be careful though as it will etch the shit out of the surface if you let it sit too long (YES... there is a story)

He's probabaly to lazy to have to turn the throttle that much. It could be that or he doesn't want to strain his drinkin hand...

A quick throttle is nice when you use it like a on/off switch thou.

Well I finally got around to ripping the snorkel off the top of my airbox this afternoon. In addition to that I cleaned the air filter (K&N) for the first time... I've only had the XRL a couple weeks now... It wasn't too dirty but was probably due for a good cleaning nonetheless. I also cleaned out the airbox really well... Just wiped out the light grime/dust that had built up. Man what a difference! Breathes much better... Bye, bye snorkel!

Still waiting on my damn smog-off kit. UPS made an "exception" (corporate lingo for big damn error/mistake) in the delivery process... Been watching the tracking number a couple days now... It is inching closer but taking for damn ever.

Think I need to check the jetting after de-smogging it? So far it's running great... Doesn't seem lean or anything. Not sure of the bike's history in this department... It has a White Brothers pipe so I'm guessing the jetting has been adjusted/played with at some point.

I'm sure it's from the lack of the oil separator. After realizing it wasn't the Evap Canister everyone used to think it was, and about 6,000 miles, I replaced the separator. No more oil mist getting to the air box, turning back into a liquid, sitting on the bottom of the air box and seeping out the drain and the left side of the box.

We shall see what happens. I'll take my usual heavy and thin gloves, just in case.
Does anyone know what the length of a stock, unmolested throttle tube is supposed to be?
Reason I ask is my 08's had been cut to fit the bark busters and my 04 has been ground down a little from a late spring low side.
The heater pads are 4 1/8" long and both my throttle tubes are more or less the same length, with ragged edges. There is no extra room to zip tie the wires to the tube as the wired end of the heat pad would be right at the flared end of the tube.

I assume the CRF and XRL tubes the same length.? Is it a direct bolt onto the XRL throttle housing?

More progress with some shameless farkle to boot


Decided to fit my new rear brake lever tip to the OEM lever.

New lever tip http://www.ebay.com/itm/180999915104...84.m1497.l2649

With a 4in grinder and a cut off wheel I removed the original pivot bracket then using the same cut off wheel made the alignment grove. Once fitted I then drilled and taped the hole to attach the farkle in question. Used the good lil mig welder to fill in the grove so once installed it shouldn't be visible. a little grinding and filing later...



With the farkle attached

It is the same length. You have to replace the tube and the housing as one assembly. The cables will work on either.
