The wheel worked great.

Unfortunately the MT43 only comes in an 18" so time to swap wheels. I ordered the exact same wheel but in an 18 if that's any testament to what I think of the quality of it.

If on the other hand you're asking about the Shinko trials tire that's mounted in that picture, well then it also worked great - for 250 miles and then it split at the base of several knobs and wouldn't hold air anymore.

Ah, that makes sense. If I wasn't about to go to a MT43 on the rear, I'd be buying your tire tonight.

Haha right on. I'm actually thinking I might keep it and put a paddle tire on it since I hit the dunes fairly often. Only have 1 quad right now so if the wife is riding that then it'd be nice to have the XR setup to ride as well.

kickstart

ok so it was really windy the other day and my bike fell over on to its right side. now the kickstarter is not returning to the top after you kick. it still starts so im guessing that something became unlodged in the fall. its been shit weather ever since so havent been able to take it apart for a look. is this common/easy fix?

cool to live on a boat, sux no garage or shop!

you will have to pull the clutch cover (kick start cover) and see if the spring on the kick start shaft is either broke or slipped off the spring perch..this means that you will have to drain the oil and get a new clutch cover gasket and any other gaskets and O rings that you will remove..cheaper and less hassle in the long run, to replace em all while you got it down..good luck!

I tried searching this thread a few times and didn't get what I was looking for so.... I have a 99 xr4 that recently got plated. Now I have two areas that I would like some advice in. First has anyone or does anyone put a key or toggle switch to deter theft, and if so were did you place said key/switch?.
Second, what is the preferred sprocket sizes for somebody who is looking at less and less single track and more slab and gravel/ woods rd. Thanks for any insight

I got the Baja Key switch and I mounted it up on the handle bar clamp on the right side..real easy.

I run a 14/46 tops out at 60mph...makes for a long day on pavement, but PERFECT for any dirt road and works great for any trail too!

Mounted it with the included mount like this (worked fine with the stock forks too):

The baja designs key has worked well for me as well, mounted on the handlebar riser.

On the road I run a 16x39 combo, the engine is very comfortable at 60 to 65 mph. It only takes a couple of minutes to put a 13 tooth sprocket upfront when I need lower gearing.

I'm running 15/40 street and 14/40 dirt. Its almost the same ratio as stock and stock CS+1 but I can't run a 16T CS due to the case saver I made being in the way. With 14/40 my rpm's in 5th tend to be 100x of my speed (55mph=5500rpm). With the 15/40 I drop about 500 rpm's for any given speed (55mph=5000rpm).

Hey thanks for the responses. Going to be ordering another set of sprockets and a chain during the winter as well as one of those keyed switches.
