compression

Do a compression test and see how much you have then do a leak down test and see where it's going.

Pretty sure it's the same fit but if you check on that I'm sure we can work something out.
Found one already. Thanks for the offer all.

Thanks.
I'd like to know too.
The plastic acerbis ones I'm using are unobtrusive when in dirt but are worthless and get in the way while on road.

Question Risers and Pegs

[quote=Hayduke]I've been too broke to go all out on mods to my new-to-me XR, but I have spent about $52.50 to make it work much better for me.

$25 for Universal Bar Risers


$25 for cheap oversized pegs-

Hey Heyduke,
Where'd you get the universal bar risers and pegs????
thanks.

I bought the risers from Rocky Mountain ATV/MC... they were the Tusk Universal bar risers, but I don't think they make them anymore. Last I heard they were "re-designing" them and would offer a new version.

the pegs were from D2Moto- an ebay seller. I know Codys and Mommer bought them, too... and they were something like $16 plus shipping... they work great!

be sure not to mount that plate upside down, like you are holding it!

Wicked Stock clutch cable on Rox

Fellas, I juuuust barely had enough room to squeeze the stock clutch cable to reach up on the Rox Risers. They didn't bind at the time but eventually frayed from a year's use.
Anybody know if clutch cables from a Xr650 might be a tad longer?
Just need another inch. -ok let's keep the 'inch' comments aside!

What an awesome machine!

My '01 XR400R has been neglected for the last year. Was outside sitting under a waterproof cover (it wasn't waterproof!) since August '08.

5th kick it started! Old fuel and plugs!

What an awesome machine!

Motion Pro will make you a custom cable any length you want for about $40.

I was thinking the same thing - front end just a touch low and form that's not terribly confidence-inspiring... so did you make it across?
