Did you get any information back about these tanks? I have one for the bike I'm building but I sure would like to have another for the next bike.

No, I've sent emails but no response. I may need to find an acerbis dealer to contact. I'll wait another day or so and see what happens

You can see the clearance behind the lock plate as it shoulders against the cog offset. Note the washers behind the screws to keep the plate from bending. The oem Honda cog has a machined area that matches the shape of the locking plate which prevents the plate from bending. The OEM sprocket is a far better design but you take what you can get now that they are discontinued.




I finally had the time to pull off the front sprocket and investigate today. I noticed that you have mounted your sprocket with the "JT" logo facing outwards. I had mounted mine the other way, with the logo facing inwards. This allowed me to tighten the clip flush against the sprocket, without the need for washers. I have the washers ready and can flip the sprocket around, or should I just leave it how it is?

I had placed an order from cmsnl.com over in Europe for the panels in the "Astro Blue Metallic" original US color. I also had them throw in a front sprocket just for comparison to my current JT one. From the look and feel they are the exact same sprocket. But I measured the inside of the sprocket, and the OEM one is definitely thicker than the JT. Since I happen to have it apart, I'll put the OEM sprocket on. But I still would like to know if my turning the JT sprocket around, are any problems of countershaft wear averted?

Oh, you're running a different wheel. I really should start paying attention.

G'day Guys,

Just came across this while looking at the Boano site.
Apologies if this was already known.


Cheers,

Dan.

Hey guys I finally got around into diving into my bike to figure out the low mileage issues and poor performance at higher altitude. First, someone regeared it to 13/45. I brought it back to stock (15/45). I pulled the carb and cleaned it, although it was not very dirty. It still has stock jetting (48/155). However I still get 33-35 mpg, and performance going from 5500-8500 is worse (obviously from regear, but still not good when when im climbing. when I get on the gas at lower altitudes it sometimes hesitates with a jerk at greater than 80% throttle in higher gears. It also wont maintain power at rpms lower than 5000 starting at ~6500'. Ive been reading that the bikes are jetted lean, so Im not sure if jetting is my problem here. Also the bike has dual marving exhausts, not stock, so Im not sure if this is affecting the performance. I dont care much about power, but would like better fuel efficiency and a smoother ride at altitude. It is an '88 with 18000k. what should I try next?

Finally got information about the tanks. They list in in their catalog but the tanks are still discontinued with no plans to make any. Back to watching for a used one.

After it was mentioned Dominator Acerbis tanks were in the catalog again I searched around a found an Aussie dealer listing the 1992-94 ones in stock for $349:
http://www.mx1australia.com.au/index...s/product/1516

and 1995-06:
http://www.mx1australia.com.au/index...s/product/1517

Not much good for the international people though...

Have you tried the Carb mods suggested here
Mine stumbled a bit before but after doing the mods it runs a lot smoother. Altitude jetting I can't help with not many places over 300m here!
Try looking for jetting specs for the XR650L for high altitude.

Any experience with Dave's mods on stock exhaust/air filter? I have read it may not have any effect on stock systems.

No idea, Mine came with a Supertrapp and I fitted a BMC filter.
I also had a California model Carb on mine which I changed for a German market carb and I have removed the top of the airbox snorkel.
I see at the bottom of that page they say that the mods might make it run worse with stock airfilter and exhaust.

I have not modified my carb yet. Reason being, if bike is stock jetted lean(at sea level), and after market mufflers are on (which should lean it out further), and I'm at 5000' I still might be a hair lean, but problems should dissipate by climbing through to 8500'. Creating a richer mixture which is what the mod will do, would only make thinks worse up high. I think. My bike feels like it has plenty power at 5000'. But the 35mpg(at best) seems 10-15 low. This is the only motorcycle if ridden besides a gs1200r, so I don't have anything to go by in terms of power. It won't wheelie, not sure a properly tuned one can, but if that's an indicator I hope it helps. I'm inclined to try Dave's mods, but don't want to permanently alter anything if I don't have to. Thanks!


Forgot to add that someone before me Desmogged it but left oil separator on

here are two pics of the plug (one with flash and one without), i tried to compare them with photos of plugs on the internet and my conclusion is that im running lean, can anyone confirm this? however, If i am running lean, why does my problem get worse with altitude?
