Ahhh little bro... maybe some day your pig will turn into a Husky! Probably not but you can always dream.







All kidding aside the XRL is one bad ass bike!

Out of curiosity you don't have an 08 do you?

Scrap that shitty fuel line from Acerbis. I use these with good results on my Acerbis Tank:

As you rotate the engine and get to TDC you should hear the auto de-comp. cam fall out. Also you can set this valve just past TDC. I use 15 deg ATDC.

PS: also if the engine is high milage, leave a feeler gauge in one valve as you adjust the other. This takes the slack out of the rocker shaft. I noticed that when I set one valve, then set the other, then re-checked the first it was off. Using two gauges and leaving one in the adjusted valve stopped this.
Additionally, try draining the carb. float bowl. There is a screw on the bottom side of the left side of the carb. When you back out the screw it will drain the fuel bowl completely. Drain it then open the petcock and flush some more fuel through.
Thanks Fitz - I'll check the valves again. I did think it was too much of a coincedence - I check the valves every time I change the oil at 3K and this is the first time I have had to adjust the valves for about 9K miles.

Pulled the carb, cleaned the hell out of it, put it back together. Fired right up and the problem seems to be gone. Sticky slide maybe (didn't seem to be) or some crud in there somewhere?

Before I pulled the carb, I scoured the boards for hints on what the problem might be. It's not unheard-of, but nobody has the sure-fire fix. One guy did say that adjusting his valves cured it, but that's a little wonky to me.

Thanks

Interesting - I adjusted the valves since they were all loose which I figured was OK since things start to wear and they get looser and not tighter. I will check the valves again.

It starts just fine, it's just the idle. I'll also check for air leaks.

Thanks

Wipeout!

Went for a ride into South Cow Mountain last weekend! Took the kids, all the fun you can shake a stick at. Found a cool trail, nicely raise bermed corner, with a "Waadddya know!" waterbar on the far side that said....LAUNCH HERE!
So I did!
I made the pig FLYYYYY!!! I hit it about 35 mph off the berm and woke up about 30 feet up the hill, half under my bike.

My kids were standing around asking each other if they had ever heard anyone make that noise before. I finally got some air and tried to piece together what went wrong. Here is what I came up with:

1. Pigs weren't meant to fly that high, that far.
2. Suspension bottoming and skid plate catching is not a good last thing to remember.
3. Missing paint and cracks in the helmet combined with a cherried cheekbone and bloody nose means its time for a new helmet.
4. Pre scoring your brake and clutch lever where you want to break them will save you heartache when trying to get out.
5. Your kids wont back your campfire story.
6. Carry kid repellent.
7. Without armor I would have had to have some stitches on my forearm, elbow and shoulder. The holes in my $200 gear are cheaper than the $3000 emergency room bill that it would have been. Not counting the damage the helmet absorbed.

I have started saving for the elusive suspension upgrades. I am also drinking a lot and taking aspirin. It helps with the pain and swelling, but a paper cut will bleed me out right now.
I hope all of you have nothing in common with this story!
