Sanjoh has done a great job of sourcing his product and testing it. He also has great customer service. He is not representative of some of the fly by night resellers on the internet and seems to do a great job servicing the ADV community.

Sorry for no pictures, but I just got back from a motocross practice track with the piggy. Neighbor kid wanted to ride my crf, I figured the xr would probably be good enough to play around on.

Other than my oversize tank and tires it actually did ok. The mt21 front completely sucks on a prepped track. Might as well be on race slicks. The gas tank was below 1/2 so the weight wasnt there, but it still felt wide and didn't have that nimble feeling.

Suspension worked, just had to be smooth on the landings. I skipped the bigger jumps, everything under 40' or so was fair game. Being a practice track it was a fairly easy layout, so that helped a bunch.

Next time I'm leaving it at home though. To go back I would at a minimum go back to stock tank, stock headlight, and real dirt tires. Front at least, the 606 rear actually hooked up pretty good.

Yeah picked it up in Nampa. it's in good shape except for a small dent on the swing arm. If your bike is back together you should join us for a ride Tuesday or Wednesday. We are talking about it in the Boise section. What XR specific tools do you have?

Checked my clutch after somewhere between 40 and 50,000km's (likely closer to 50 now), and it's still well within spec! Springs, plates, and fibers!


The cogs also show very little to now wear. Some darker spots where the plates move, but no real grooves.

They just don't make them like they used to!

I recorded all my numbers for anybody interested. I did not check for warpage because I don't have an issue with the clutch. Just checking before the Tour of Idaho T1 attempt.

I really appreciate the offer, I hope you don't mind if I take you up on it the next ride. Please keep me in mind. I have the swing arm removal tool and it seems like something else. I haven't gotten in there yet but the headset and wheel bearings were real lacking of lube. The front wheel has a tiny amount of play pulling the wheel side to side from the top I am concerned about.? I am probably about a week or so out, I have most of the d/s sport stuff on but not wired yet.
Have a great ride, I can't wait to hear about it.

front wheel crack

Shibby,
Not reassuring but I had a KTM 250EXC that had a crack halfway through the rim for about 5 years, never got bigger or caused any problems, just kept an eye on it! Never fixed it...
But it was a rear rim, and I was only woods riding it, although harder than just ripping the XR around....
If it was my front on an XR i'd be looking for a replacement at sometime though, good luck!

I just mounted new Moose rims and could give you the old front as I want the rear. It is just a rim, nothing else. Not sure how I would box it. Please tell me you are in Idaho! Disclaimer, just bought bike but nothing appeared wrong with rim.

I grew up in that area. My sis is still in Nampa and my parents are in near Greenleaf. I'm moving back next July when my contract here expires.

Yeah absolutely. Come join and also invite to ride anytime! I may have to take you up on borrowing your swingarm tool, as I have a small dent I want to try and repair in mine (and possibly powder coat it over the winter as well). We are heading out tomorrow. Hitting up some spots on the IAMC list, so there should be some pics of the bike in random scenic locations!

I am from Alberta, but going to Idaho in 2 weeks for the Tour of Idaho. (Using a friends front wheel). We will likely be riding across the border though from Creston.

I see the Moose is about $170MRSP for spokes and wheel. Wonder how much more us CDN's have to pay for that...

What were you wanting for the stock hoop? I'd probably just get it shipped to Montana border where Ill plan a border run soon to pick up a shipment. Make a camping trip out of it. I need Toyota parts too.

Shibby, I built a front wheel with moose rim & spokes. Cost me $200+/- a few bucks to get it to calgary...

Thanks for the info.

I'd buy in the states and pick up in the states so it would be "hopefully" cheaper.

I think the days this bike has with me are getting numbered. I just can't sell a bike that I know has a crack in it's wheel.

Not sure what my next ride will be. Possibly another XR650R (they are all clapped out here with no maintenance and premium prices), or a plated WR450 because of their durable engines and our overly agressive dual sport rides (where all my friends are now on MX/Trail converted bikes). They tend to be more dirt bike rides than dual sport. Which is what I like.
