Manracks(he's a member on ADV) makes the best fender support I've found. I've broken 6-7 of the type you showed. Manracks uses the same design but added a couple tweaks for added strength.

Thanks folks,

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

. Yep, my first source. He's beefed my XRL up and has a great support for the XRR at a great price for inmates. I've already got my PM in to him.

Question rear axle play

I have noticed a bit play between the ID of the brake side rear wheel bearing and the OD of the axle. The bearing rolls smooth with no play and seems to be in good shape. They are pivot works bearings a couple of seasons old. Anybody else have this? It's not severe and has not got worse in the last 250 miles since I first noticed. I was going to replace the bearing today but that doesn't seem like the problem. Can the axle wear out?

I know this is a simple carb but want to know more about him.

Thanks in advance for any information about this carburetor and greet.:)
Hey Tom.

What type of information would you like to know? There are lot of people here that use the HS/TM 40 carb.

I am currently working through the jetting process with mine. I have some jets showing up next week to continue to fine tune it.

Hi. Found a 650R which looks nice. Except it isn't platted and doesn't have the lights setup. Can anyone tell me how much work and $ it's going to cost me to legalize over here in CA?

You'll never be able to get it plated in CA. You'd have to buy one that is already plated.

That is the official stance. You can sometimes sneak them by, but there is a good chance the plate may get pulled. That whole deadline in 2002 is why plated dirtbikes carry such a high value here in CA.

Maybe register it in AZ or NV?

You are looking at about $350 for a decent dualsport kit, something like Baja Designs. It should have all the gear you need to get it solid, except the mirrors.

I know UT and CO are the easiest. Never tried Nevada since I didnt live there or know anyone who did.

Another question: Is there any real difference in billet clutch baskets between brands? There is the Hinson, Barnett, Wiseco and a few others. Not a huge difference in price amongst the batch.

Eek Head gasket?

Has anyone ever blown a head gasket on their BRP? Toll mine on the trails a couple weeks ago, laid it over a couple times, later while cruising along the trail an antifreeze bomb goes off between my legs. Had the radiators pressure checked and they came back good. Can't see any obvious clues on any of the hoses that would warrant a big and sudden leak like that. Wondering if anyone has had this happen to them or have any ideas about it. Thanks.

My brother had his XR650R plated in AZ, and he didn't need turn signals for it. In fact I don't think it even had a brake light. He lives in UT now and has to put on a dual sport kit to get it plated here. (I think he's going to go with a cheap one from rockymountainatvmc.com )
