What year is your bike? The bushing was updated in 02-ish if I remember right.

re you sure your forks where not leaking at the top cap and the oil was running down to the lower clamp? If not, then your fork tube is cracked from over-tightening!! I'd loosen the clamps and slide the fork down alittle for inspection!

Alternatively you could lace it up and keep it loose and mount on bike and find the center between the two fork tubes which by my eye is dead center.


Ooops, just saw this. My Excel Takasago front wheel is 2.170" wide. That means he needs .660" measured from the rotor mating surface to the outside of the wheel!



Edit: My front has around .937"

thanks in advance for any tips. you can throw in a FYFFF salute if you want.
I just guessed and then eyeballed it. It worked out ok.

Likeing the EBC clutch kit

So a few pictures to see what I like

I got the dirt racer Clutch kit. It comes with springs/ fibers and steels
106 bucks at MCSS
The fibers are in oil, I used the package as the bath tub
the springs are suposidly 15% heavier
EBC says
15% uprated heavy duty clutch springs to clamp those plates together firm and strong for the life of your clutch



the steels are different than stock and you can see how.
EBC says
Pin planished steel driven plates that spread the oil around the clutch better and prevent clutch burn-up THEN EVEN MORE………


On the fibers they are a cork based formula with aluninum bits in the mix
EBC says
EBC unique alloy article impregnated clutch facings that wear longer and resists burning PLUS…….
You can see the alloy particles in the picture


this clutch is working better than the stock set up on my application but is a heavier pull on the lever, I am pleased with the preformance and price
Time will tell but so far it hooks up where the stocker would slip

Anyone tried the Mishimoto Silicone hose kits?

I'm planning on ordering up some Fluidynes and figured I might as well swap the hoses out too.

Any interest in carb adapters for the newer-style FCR MX carbs? I used one of Noss' universal FCR adapters on my 650R with a 39mm FCR off a late-model CRF450 and it ripped, but the adapter dimensions weren't quite right. So we're going to have them make some custom adapters for the XR650R and the XR650L. I don't have a 650R anymore, but my buddy James wants one and I need to have some 650L adapters made for these bikes. Figured we might as well make them available. His regular universal adapters cost $65, so am guessing these will probably be a little bit more expensive, but can't imagine they'll end up costing any more than $80. It's pretty easy to find good deals on used FCR MX carbs ($300?) because there are so many of them out there (being used on virtually all of the modern 450cc motorcross bikes). So this can be a relatively low-cost upgrade, and the performance is flat-out awesome. Fitment is pretty straightforward, and you do not have to modify the gas tank in order to clear the carb if you just install it a few degrees off vertical. So this is literally a bolt-in deal, and you can use the FCR throttle cables and twist-grip (stock CRF cables are perfect length with aftermarket tripleclamps and taller bars). Shoot me a PM if you want one!

I run them with Fluidynes as well...no issues to speak of. Been about 5k miles, 80% street. Took them off recently when I had my engine out for rebuild and didn't see any damage or anything.

i've come to terms with the fact that if it does not start easily something is wrong with it mechanically.

I'm blown away with how easy mine starts once all the pieces are put together right, and are dialed.

Not funny , if you dont know the correct technique and never seen or owned big single its quite hard to start them .
It took me 2 days to learn how to start mine , and now i find it dead easy , dont even use much force it starts so easy , ( yes i have never seen decompressor before)

Feel sorry for the lad , his leg will be in serious pain .

Yes nice find Rob, Alllllsooooooo the BRP suffers from a floppy rear fender syndrome and loves to eat plates, especially with all the extra weight you've just added; get a sub-frame extender that bolts to the subframe and sits underneath the fender.; Trust me on this. I have this one and it works just fine, the one JesusGatos is/was/might make looks good but looks like overkill to me.

Just went online and I think you're directing this to me. I did notice the stock set-up, with the added weight of the plate was a tad floppy. I'll be looking for that now. I may have to womp her again tomorrow though.

Thanks folks,

RZ Rob
