...
Part #19 is the O-ring which seals the pipe connecting the oil pump to the right crankcase cover. You should also replace the oil seal, part #20 in the following diagram.



This part seals the oil passenge which feeds the end of the crankshaft.

RSW Fork Brace installed yesterday evening. First impressions... awesome!

In the little riding I did today the front end felt much more stable than it had before. I can't wait to get it out on another logging road and trail ride to put it through its paces.

What size Rim Locks would I need for the XRL?

Mine doesn't have any currently, and I'm still debating whether to actually put any on it when I switch tires. I won't be airing down the tires below 20 psi, and I won't be doing any really extreme riding.

Would I be okay without the rim locks, or should I put one on the rear? Or go ahead and get front and rear? The extra insurance knowing the bead won't come off if I get a flat would be nice, but I'm worried they'd be a pain to get balanced.

The front rim is size 1.60x21, and takes a size 1.60 rim lock. The rear rim is size 2.15x18, and takes a size 2.15 rim lock. Rim locks are designed to hold the tire on the rim at low air pressures. If you keep your tire pressures above 20 psi, you don't need rim locks.

If you ride any distance on a flat tire without a rim lock, you will probably rip the valve stem from the inner tube. If you are riding in the dirt when the flat occurs, you will likely maintain control of the motorcycle. If you get a flat, front tire on pavement without a rim lock, there is an excellent chance you will hit the asphalt after the front tire walks off the rim.



I keep both tires inflated to 26 psi at all times; therefore, I have never used rim locks on my XR650L. However, I'm sorely tempted to install rim locks purely for safety while riding on pavement.

How many times have you actually had a front tire flat?

In 40 years of riding and several hundred thousand miles I have only had one. Maybe I'm just lucky. It was pretty non-exciting as flat tires go. Seemed like my front tire had more traction than normal. Figured it must be this new pavement they have here, but it just didn't feel right. After about ten miles of this I pulled over at a convenient spot. Sure enough front tire was completely flat. No rim locks used here either.

I have also had one flat front tire, but one was enough. I was riding on pavement at approximately 45mph when the front tire went flat. The front tire separated from the rim, and I don't know how I kept the bike upright; I attribute my "luck" to divine providence. Perhaps it only took a minute or two to coast to a stop on the grassy berm, but it seemed like an eternity. I hope it never happens again.

Perhaps I will never have another, flat front tire, but I am reluctant to take that chance. If it happens again, and I fall to the pavement because I didn't have a front rim lock installed, I won't have anyone to blame but myself.

Weekend Update

Just got back from Supercross Season Opener, Round 1, Anaheim. Basically uneventful racing. Notable was the fact that there appeared to be a changing of the guard. I don't want to spoil it for those that didn't watch it live on TV.

One exciting thing was I'd sold my 4 extra Diamond Club seats to a very famous fashion designer who is also a car and motorcycle buff and wealthy beyond our wildest dreams. The guy has 2 Enzos, a Mercedes SLR McClaren and an SLS and get this, 4 Desmosedicis. I was told the purchaser was a billionaire, but I was expecting an actor. This guy was very nondescript. While I invited him to our suite, he was content with the Diamond Club. I can't say I ever met anyone with a greater net worth (although I did stand next to Micheal Jordon at the USGP in '05).

Double Springs Pass????

I have had many front flats. Have ridden many miles on flat tires. Front flats it is important to keep your wits about you, sit back as far as possible, don't chop off the throttle,,,ease off while applying rear brake. A Piggy full of gas is tough to handle for sure,,,especially 5.8 gal.

I've got two favorites Vilopoto,,and Idaho homeboy Jake Wiemer. But I really was happy for the first place finisher in the 450s.

In my years of riding offroad, I haven't had any YET. However, all the bikes I've owned have had rim locks including my xrl. I just feel safer with them installed. Also, its my understanding that the hole for the rimlock should be opposite the valve stem but on my xrl, that isn't the case. On tire pressure, I run higher on the slab but if I get off into the dirt I lower it.

EAR by Supertrapp, bolt issues

So, awhile back I bought a used EAR by Supertrapp muffler that fits the XRL from a fellow inmate for a good price. I've been busy and just now had a chance to try and put it on the bike. Before doing so, I figured I'd open it up and make sure it's clean, doesn't need repacking, etc.

4 of the 6 bolts came out fine, but the last two came out about half way, then decided to start spinning freely. From what I can tell, the bolt that's welded to the inside has come loose and is stuck to the end of the bolt, just freewheeling away. I tried putting some outward pressure against the plates and turning to see if I could generate enough friction to hold it, but no dice.

Any other suggestions? Is this salvageable, or am I SOL? Thanks in advance!
