Thanks a million SwitchThrottle, I'll keep you all posted on the progress. I feel you on the life part, I've been swamped with work/home lately. Currently working on getting all the needed parts to get this thing cleaned up and ready to rock. I will do just as you did with the wiring, no regulator, just wire it up front to blinkers and rear to rear.

My front end seems a bit bent, loosened everything up, tried tweaking it back, got much better. Can't tell if it's the triples or the forks themselves, along with the semi tweaked bars. Working with a fellow rider on a nice paypal transaction for nice needed small items (axle, odo gear housing, front master cylinder,triple clamps maybe). Will order the lighting parts asap, can't wait to get out on some nice trails to rip it up. Happy riding all :) P.S. those with spare parts, please let me know...

Hi there... Yeah.. I got from a friend who sold off his 650L. Suppose to mount it on another bike but WTH... I was worried that the frame might hit the tank sides when making a turn but I was wrong. I guess Its gonna be there for awhile till another spark ignites in my head.

Import XR4's...

For the gentleman with the imported XR400 (through Florida..)
That site has a decent price. Are these imported bikes hard to get registered?

Sorry, this was more of a supermoto question, I thought I saw the imported bikes link on here...please disregard.

billyvray screwed with this post 05-23-2008 at 06:34 AM Reason: Wrong site!

Not sure on the Mikuni (I have the Edelbrock), but both are pumpers. Generally I do the usual kick-through with the decompression lever in, then give it 1-2 quick turns of the throttle, then kick. Should fire right up on the first or second kick.

My procedure is:
Pull the start enrich knob,
pull decomp lever and kick thru half dozen times
release lever, no throttle, kick from TDC.

Call me crazy , but I love the XR so much I am thinking of selling my yzf600 and sinkin the cash into the XR to make it my do everything bike. I will need some street wheels (cbr600f1/600 hurricane's should fit). Other than big $$$ for true supermoto setup, does anyone have other bolt on wheel options? I am also thinking about aquiring another set of stock wheels, and lacing up 17in rims. I would like the cbr600 cush drive so that is the route I am leaning. Also....I am thinking of the 400ex e-start conversion for this winter. Does that added weight show it's head in the tight technical stuff? How much more weight is it?

There's a decent deal on a complete E-start kit for an xr400 on ebay right now. Just a thought, if it's worth 600 to you...

ends today, no bidders as of yet:

I got tired of not knowing my speed on the road, so I added a Trailtech Endurance computer.... Not crazy about the flimsy mounting but so far, so good. Lot's of info on this little thing.

I blew my yzf600 motor tonight. The XR is now my only steed. $600....way too much. I can get most of a 400ex motor for that. Money is going into tires for my Maine trip for the XR, and whatever the YZF needs to bring her back to life.

As for the trailtech, it's nice. I went the schwinn bicycle computer route for $20 at Dicks. It runs off a magnet on a spoke, and has multiple wheel diameters to set. Just remember to leave full fork extention slack in the pickup wire when zipting it on.
