Yeah, I'm not too sure what a flat biller is either. I'm pretty sure that whatever it is, I'm not one since that sounds like a negative thing.

I'll add "clean the carb" to my list of crap to be done.

Do you ever wonder why you see people drinking energy drinks when it looks like they don't even have a job?

Bingo!




But being that he's got a XRR, he is probably imune to the disease. Doesn't fit the M.O.



And even then, I still got friends that could be considered FBs. So I try not to be too harsh.

Don't worry, you aren't. We welcome all either way, and weed em out as we go dow nthe trail.

Note what your jetting is while you are in there, and clip position.

Oh, and don't forget to check the screws in the choke plate. Locttite them good, or get rid of the little flapper thing al together. The choke works without it. You will see what I am talking about, hopefully, because I am not really sure what I am talking about anymore.

BTW, I party with your mayor Andy. He is a neighbor at certain times of the year.

I figured that's what you were talking about. I don't take the time to break down the different sub-categories of douche's (like flatbillers). I'm just lazy and call them all douches.

I've never messed with or cleaned a carb before, so I'll take it slow and see what's going on in there once I get some time. Thanks for the suggestions.

No better time then the present. Just be careful not to strip bolts. Some of them can be pretty soft. Also don't lose any parts or bend anything. You'll see what I mean. Just don't man handle it and you should be fine.

I'll add one more recomendation for the carb work. Verify that your disassembly screwdriver is "JIS" head, not just "Phillips" head. They do fit slightly differently. May not be a problem in AUS. Not sure what your local standard is.

I second completely removing the flapper plate.

carbs

Replace the carb phillips screw head with stainless cap/hex head stews and you'll be set for life. The stock "phillips" are way to soft and easily strip the heads.... IMHO

Couldnt agree more.

1 Clean counter

2 Organized parts in dish/tray if need be-in order and even in groupings

3 Dont strip threads/heads! If ya cant get it any other way, stop!
Go drink coffee/beer/etc Find another way!

4 Tighten it back together evenly- if it has multiple bolts/screws-tighten them down evenly together- it takes a lil longer but things seal/seat better.

If youve taken something apart a 1000 times over the years,
and it still has the same screws/bolts- yer prolly a pretty good mechanic.

Swingarm maintenance

Finally got the motivation to grease the swingarm on my XRR today. My bike has around 1000 miles on it. Here's what the bolt looked like...



Luckily it came out easy. Lots of water, little grease in the bearings...



Couple hours later...



Back end is ready to go! Waiting for shims and seals to finish the forks.

Did it help with the fender wooble at all?? Im tired of replacing blinkers.It looks good in red.

If you are tired of the rear fender shaking, build a new license plate fender support like the one I made.
