No, but it will make it hard to start.

Yes, got dual IMSs and the fitment is superb. Also got a Clarke, and am disappointed for your same reasons, plus I find the finish not as good.

Should not be but '2001' is more likely to contribute to this. And, if the valves are tight due to them having run out of adjustment (ie hammered into the seats) then off the hat must come..

I got rid of a 4.6 IMS because you can't get to a good portion of fuel in the left lobe, solid .8 gallon isn't usable.


Anybody need some front springs? .49 rate, used in the forks on my 1150GS, just swapped out to .76's. I figured the .49's would be sacked out, but they're still right at spec length.






You pick up and I'll trade for beer or something. Have to get $$ if I ship them...offered to the XRR threaders first. FM come Moanday.

I have both tanks and did not have trouble with the fit.

Rumor has it that the earlier IMS tanks had a slight fit issue (???).

I just did the petcock fuel line fix on my 4.6 IMS as outline in this post: http://advrider.com/forums/showpost....postcount=9307 working great so far. No more laying the bike on it's side to get that last .8 gallons!

Alright, so per my last post, trying to get suspension sorted out. I set the race sag at just under 4 inches (95mm) and now static sag is way out of spec...like over 1.5 inches. The strange thing is - I'm about 95% certain the bike has the stock spring on it (yellow, no Eibach/Racetech markings, no other stampings I can see). I weigh about 165-170 in my underwear, so I should be right in line with the spring spec. What gives? Should I add some more preload to get static in spec (down to 3.75" or so)?

Your free sag is 1.5 inches and race sag is just under 4 inches? Right? That's about perfect, go for a ride.

help and parts

OK bought a XR650R that sat for 2 years that has been motard, need stock links since he lowered her. He put a 102 mm kit in her and a hot cam stage 1 xr only exhaust with header, she has a slow jet of 70 and a main jet of 205. If I was to run down the road from 25 to 45 she acts like she is missing. No popping on decel and runs like a champ above 50. I know it has to do with throttle, is that in my needle adjustment.

First thing I'd do is remove carb and clean thoroughly with aerosol carb cleaner (spray in all holes and jets and allow to drip off so dirt is carried away as you spray. Once that has been eliminated I would check float height and only then look at jetting.

Hope that helps
