I've been building a "franken" xr650L the past couple of months, We took it for it's first spin around the patch today. It needs alittle more work and some fine tuining, I'm going to be itching to get it out on a real trail ride as soon as we're done with the scrambles in Feb, I'll be sure to let you know if we're going to be riding somewhere.

...just dont force it and pay attention to your grease zerks because they're easy to break off.

It is just that I didn't understand from all the bolts and connections and link, what is the minimim to disassembly.

I finally assembled evrything back (cause I didn't put the bike on stable serface) and decided to do it in another day.

I think now I know what to open.
It is part number 23 in this link. (hope the link will work)
Hi guys

I put the bile on a firm stand toay and remove the rear wheel.
Then tried again to take of the shock obsorber. No success :-(

I open the upper bolt.
The remove the what I thought you meant "swingarm bolt".
Then lower the swing arm and tried to open the lower bolt of the shock.
Still can't take it out.

I will put pictures of what I opened.
Any hints ?

Looking at the manul, I think it say to remove the air box !!! before.
Am I right ?





Thanks alot

(BTW: I wanted also to replace the rear sprocket, but can't open the nuts.
It is 17'. Do I need spcial tool ?)

BTW: I see that the link is opposite.
The wording should be in the left side.
Am I right ?
The link seems to be simetrical.
Why there is a direction for it ?

To remove the sprocket nuts you need a box wrench to loosen the nuts. The nuts must be loosened first before the bolts will come free.

Just leave the link alone. It does not matter where the writing is.

Trabels :-(
Few weeks ago I wrote a post.
I wrote that I wanted to replace the front sprocket and ordered OEM sprocket.
When I got it and tried to instal it, I saw tha there is "distance" between the chain and the sprocket.
The response was that I have to put a picture and maybe there is a need to replace the whole set.

I bought DID 520VM and new rear sprocket and went to install the set.

First I installed the new front sprocket.
I immidiatly saw that there is a problem, but was still optimistic.

took off the chain and put the new rear sprocket.
The situation stayed the same.

here is a picture of the old and new sprockets - side by side


here is a picture of the old and new sprockets - one on top of the other


here is a picture of the old sprocket with the new chain - OK


here is a picture of the new sprocket with the new chain - not OK :-(


Any idea ?

Looks like the sprocket is the wrong pitch.

Do you think there is a pitch there ?
(meaning there is one cog "correct" and one not ?)

Must be a 40 series sprocket and you need a 50, 520 actually, check the table 1/3 way down the page...

I did a full write up. If you have an Acerbis tank, make sure you get the brackets for the larger tank. See the below thread for details.

Thanks. I do have the Acerbis 5.8 tank so this helps as well.

Merry belated Christmas to all.

I'm transfering a Vapor from my TW to my XR. The temp sensor was under the plug on the TW and is not in the best of shape. Can I remove or change that eyelet? I currently have the dipstick thermometer, where would be a good place to pull temp for the vapor? Oil temp in another location? Head temp? EGT? Thanks. I tried searching but too many other things pulled up, not the specific info I'm after.

It looks like the eye hook ring thing is all chewed up and isn't going to seal properly there until I replace. The ring has a substantial joint where it connects to the wire lead, don't know if I can just source another brass ring terminal and replace, solder back on. For tonight I just hooked it to the lowest bolt of the top engine mount where it bolts to the head. I want to ride in the morning so I'll watch what numbers I see. I went to Home Depot and bought a black rubber crutch foot/table leg thing. I slide a couple of thick o-rings onto the frame oil fill, and pushed the rubber foot down onto it. The thermometer pushes right thru the center and seals it's self really well. I painted stripes around the thermometer to match the low/high markings on the dipstick. Seems to work great. Used a digital meat thermometer -20 to 309. Uses lots of info from this thread for my ideas, thanks guys!!!
