I'm changing the water pump on my BRP today. I'll be using the Honda HP coolant as recommended by Honda. Is there any reason I shouldn't pour in a little water wetter along with the coolant (wear on seals, etc.)?

Well done,
Certain it'll be a great experience sharing a common interest with the lad - enjoy.
Have a safe trip and looking forward to lots of pics as inspiration for us desk jockies.

Best wishes -

Stunt,

There is a lot of free play in the decomp lever as normal.
I have heard of them jamming / seizing a little and not returning to the normal
position.
There is a return spring on the decomp too, check to see if it is not broken.

The loud clunk can be the auto decomp working if your idle is set to low,
clunk then stall normally.

The play on the camshaft is normal.

really?

So I took the XR out for the 1st time Wednesday. Had some awesome fun hitting about 250 miles of single track, two track, atv trails, and gravel roads. On the way home, Something in the motor broke... All of the sudden I lost compression and then clunk, CLUNK, CLUNK, CLUNK!!! Piston slap galore. I need to now tear into the motor to see what failed. Aren't these bikes supposed to be built for baja1000? I destroyed it doing Idaho250...

Question

My poor piggy is out of room for adjustment on one intake valve, and starting to blow oil into the air intake through the crankcase breather. So time to give her some love, i want to replace all valves and everything that goes with that, + piston, rings, And re nikasil the bore , maybe new rocker arms and timing chain and such, i am mechanically inclined but ive never taken a dirtbike apart before . Does anyone have any suggestions for me. I will Definitely be posting pictures once i start taking it apart, oh and i want to keep everything stock except for kibblewhite valves and componets, if i find out it is even stock once i get into it

My heavily used brp carried me 6000 miles without a problem and who knows how many it had before i got it. Don't get discouraged Just rebuild it and it will be reliable for a long time

A little pig porn for a sunday evening...

I'm finally feeling comfortable with the bike after a solid 3 months of dicking around with things.
