Holy crap!!!!! You'd have to go up another fork spring size to accomodate for that thing. SO, what bike was it originally made for? the rear mount has two holes instead of one, like the "L" has.

It was made for the 600 and 650L, it has a special bracket for the two holes.

Interesting ride just a few minuets ago on the way to/from the store.

Outside temps in the low 70s with little humdity.
The bike felt amazing! More power then I've felt in, well ever.

It was able to lift the front wheel off the ground with out any effort and caught me by surprise too. Top end was signifcantly stronger too, like 5th gear pull was silly strong up to 85mph but I didn't go past.
Temp oil temp never went over 220.

SO..
Could the meen I'm running to lean for the warmer weather?
Running the standard Dave's mod & jets, twinair and fmf exhaust.

If you like that, try going up to a 160 Main with that FMF. Mid range+ you will feel a difference.

No harm, with the can, you lean out the mix from stock, thus needing the bigger main jet. It will richen up the mix.

Here is a guide to all that is jetting, disregard the air mixture screw bits, the L's carb only has fuel mix screw:

It is important to remember that adjusting carburetion should only be attempted on an engine in good running condition that is thoroughly up to operating temperature. Do not make adjustments all at once. Find the affected throttle position (circuit) and work on that area only. Doing one step
at a time will ensure optimum performance and smooth efficient operation.

Pilot Jet - Up to 1/4 throttle - Controls fuel flow through the idle circuit - Mixture is adjusted by means of the mixture screw -
There are two types of mixture screws - Fuel Screws and Air Screws ]
- A Fuel Screw, as the name implies, meters fuel - A Fuel Screw will be located on the engine side of the throttle valve, usually
on the bottom of the carb - Turn in to lean mixture - Turn out to richen mixture - The engine should have a smooth, steady
idle with the screw between 1/4 and 3-1/2 turns out from fully bottomed (gently!) - If the engine requires more than three
turns out, the pilot jet may be too lean - If it requires less than 1/4 turn, it may be too rich.
- An Air Screw meters air - An Air Screw will be located on the air cleaner side of the throttle valve, usually on the right or left
side - Turn in to richen mixture - Turn out to lean mixture - The engine should have a smooth, steady idle with the screw
between 1/2 and 2-1/2 turns out from fully bottomed - If the engine requires more than 2-1/2 turns out, the pilot jet may be
too rich - If it requires less than 1/2 turn, it may be too lean.
Symptoms and/or adjustment - With the idle at approximately 1000 rpm, turn the air screw mixture in slowly until the idle
slows or becomes erratic, then begin turning the screw back out until it again becomes erratic. Count the number of turns in
between the two positions. Set the position of the air screw between these two conditions, which should also be your smoothest
idle . Finally, adjust the idle screw if necessary to approximately 1000 rpm again.

Jet Needle - from 1/8th to 3/4 throttle - Controls fuel flow through needle jet - Raising or lowering the clip location on the
grooves, richens or leans fuel flow, as well as determines at what throttle position the tapered part of the needle is to be raised
out of the needle jet - Raising the needle (lowering the clip) richens the mixture - Lowering the needle (raising the clip) leans
the mixture.
Symptoms and/or adjustment - Accelerate to 1/2 to 3/4 throttle, preferably in top gear. If acceleration seems weak, soft or
flat, or the engine responds slow when the throttle is quickly
opened, the mixture is too lean. Lower the needle clip one position
to raise the needle. Conversely, if acceleration is crisp and strong,
but hesitates or shutters as the throttle is closed from 3/4 to 1/2, the
mixture is too rich. Raise the clip one position to lower the needle.
The optimum setting will be crisp acceleration, with no load up
(rich) as the throttle is backed off.

Main Jet - from 3/4 to full throttle - Controls fuel flow as the jet
needle is lifted far enough out of the needle jet. Until this point
(throttle position), the main jet has no effect on mixture strength. A
larger # jet richens the mixture - A smaller # jet leans the mixture.
Symptoms and/or adjustment - The main jet is the last jet you
deal with and by far the easiest to diagnose. You will only change the
main jet if a problem exists at 3/4 to full throttle. Any other problems
in the carburetion are not affected by the main jet. The two easiest
ways to find the optimum setting are:

1) Set-up an area approximately 50 to 100 yards long. Have
someone time you through this area. As you pass the entry, open the
throttle fully (on the main jet circuit) and motor through this area.
Essentially, the jet size that provides the least amount of time to run
through this, is the correct main jet.

2) Starting with a fresh set of spark plugs that have been run for
at least a few miles to gain some color to them, run the engine
(under a load) for approximately a minute or so at 3/4 to full throttle.
Then, in a safe area, pull in the clutch, hit the kill switch, and
leave the throttle in its wide open position; all at the same time and
coast to a stop. Then remove the spark plug and inspect its condition/
color. The porcelain should be a reasonably clean color/condition,
light gray to brown is good. If the plug is black and/or sooty,
the main jet is too rich (big) and you should go down in size to a
smaller number. If the plug is white, with no apparent change in
color from brand new, and the engine appears to be running hotter
than normal, it may be lean (small). You need to go up in size to a
larger number.

thanks, I haven't read/seen that before.
Looks like I'll try the 160 today :)

Is that one of Cabelas water proof bags they give out with Scent Lok clothes on the back? That's what I use to keep things dry on the trail.

So I've decided to just get another XRL , instead of fixing mine (there are a lot more problems than just the clutch , and the thing that bothers me the most about the clutch issues , is that I cant find a single broken part , so if i get it unjammed , whats gonna stop it from doing it again in the future). Im gonna pick up a nice lookin 03 near by , and now i will also have a rolling parts bin to go with it.

It's an LL Bean bag that my parents had from year ago.
