I would think that if you are replacing the oil pump, you should be replacing everything else also.

BTW, there are testing ports and a way to test the oil pressure.

what exactly do you mean by "everything else also?" is there a procedure in the FSM for testing oil pressure?? i guess i may have missed it. as far as i know, there is nothing wrong with teh pump, its just 13 years old and i lack of oil is what started this mess, i don't want to rebuild this bike, then burn it up right away.

Oh, I had forgot you already did replace everything else already.
Actually, I went home last week and checked my pump since it is one of the few original parts in my motor, and it still has lots of life in it.

I know I saw a test procedure somewhere, it used the ports where the external oil lines tie in to the case. Seems like it required two gauges. If it isn't in the xrr manual, it may be i honda's general service manual. I can look tonight when I go home.

I am not sure if the cover (pump housing) actaully has any wear points on it, and I think all the wear would be between the rotors and the part they interface with. If not, its a cheap fix/insurance. Otherwise the cover adds $170 to the job.

As one side of the pump housing it's a wear point, depending on how much crap went through the pump it may be grooved. At $170 I'd def explore some cheaper alternatives if that the case, a good machinist might be able to surface it (I cant remember if it has an oring groove in it)

The 110 / 100 is 110 mm wide (about 4.3 inches) and 100 % of 110 tall = 110 mm tall ( about 4.3 inches ). So its 4.3 inches wide by 4.3 inches tall. So a xxx / 100 tire will be the same width as height. The 110/100 will actually be taller than the 120/80. 100% of 110 mm is bigger than 80% of 120 mm.

Some tires are just classified by 1 number, and that implies the aspect ratio is 100%. Like a 4.50 X 18; it's an 18 inch tire that is 4.5 inches wide and 4.5 inches tall.

I'm currently running a 140/80-18 on the rear, but its a Pirelli Scorpion, MT90 - more or a dual sport tire. I think the last knobby I ran was a 120/80. Pretty sure a 140/80 knobby would not have enough clearance, it would be too tight with the knobs. It's all kinda confusing until you start mounting lots of tires and see them side by side. Plus you gotta convert the metric to inches, unless you're on the other side of the pond.
I know I'm digging up an old piece of this thread, but how'd you like the Pirelli MT90s? Howd the 140/80 sizing in the back work out? I've read some really solid reviews, accompanied by some odd, very poor reviews on the MT90s. I'm gunna be taking my BRP on a long trip (1-3 months) that will start out as mostly hwy (75hwy/25offroad) then will likely transition to mostly offroad. I have some Maxxis Deserts on it now that I might just strap to the back for the first part of the trip until I need them. Looking for a recommendation on a good DS tire that handles well on wet pavement (rains are coming).

Thanks.

Chain recommendations

Starting to think about sprockets/chain for my XRR. Think I have it down to Sunstar steel 15/48 sprockets but not sure on the chain. Either DID or RK 520 o-ring seem to be the most popular. Any suggestions on exact chain and where to buy?
Thanks!

I was just on a quick dual sport ride between Port Orchard and Belfair, and found a huge network of trails off the main road. The one thing that kept crossing my mind was that I'm probably going to run right into a meth lab

After breaking a chain and rebuilding the engine I use:
DID 520ZVM2 X-Ring 520x110

Do not use Primary Drive anything.

I'd go with IronMan sprockets if you can swing it, about $35 more than a decent rear sprocket, probably the last one you'll buy for the XR, lighter than most of the alum sprockets and it outlasts almost any chain.

Yup, they have tested everything under the sun and say that the Regina Z-ring chain is the strongest and longest lasting 520 chain. I've used their sprockets and that chain on a couple bikes, they leave the fleet with them on the bike because they don't wear out.
