Gawd you guys, can't you spot a joke when you see one? I thought it was pretty damn clever myself.

Check the oil often. In my experience you will need to add some. YMMV Personally with a new to me bike I would plan a change somewhere along the way. I am a T6 worshiper.

As I mentioned a few pages back there was some forward/back (not side to side) play in the CS sprocket. There is some wear is on the front most splines that hold the CS bracket in place. The old bracket that held on the CS sprocket was fairly chewed up on its teeth.

I guess what I am saying is should it be tight/no play, or is a little acceptable/normal?

You need to change the main, obviously, as anything above ~1/8 throttle is fed by this jet. Run rich? Smaller main, and vice versa. And, only when you've got the main ballpark you start fiddling with the needleclip, as this thing only finetunes.
Before all though, clean airfilter, clean tank, fuel filter, clean carb with correct float level set is what you make sure of.
I guess it's worth a try. It must be something with the main. I'll try one circuit at a time. I do know the 68s makes it stumble but maybe a leaner main WILL work. Thanks.

Part of the problem is people want to use KBB when they are shopping for used bikes. KBB is notoriously out of touch with the actual market. Especially bikes like plated and titled XRRs. My Craigslist ads get several wacky emails a day! Offers to trade for junk, or lowball offers, or "KBB says..." emails. If I wanted a 600cc inline 4 sportbike though, I could have my choice in trades!

It kind of brought to mind that old saying... "youth and enthusiasm will never overcome old age and treachery"

Luckily Glenn helped me a stack, got rads ordered (slightly modded, they will fit) now thanks to his help & PWR's. You Ozzis seem to be a good bunch, so you can't be too useless then. Mind, some pics are still very welcome!

Once all is on/in/at I'll post some pics here, then you'll see why I did things they way I am doing it. Got the tank's supports fully sorted idea-wise, have some parts ordered from a machine shop, and all will be good. Then the bike will go to an exhaust farmer who will grow some tubes between all, and I'm busy with the rear hanger for the silencer aka doitall-bracket also.
Need to find a suitable coolant tank still, it has to go here.
On this, which bike has a small one on the right hand side, anybody knows???

Edit: I mean a coolant tank in/under/near the rhs sidecover?
the stock coolant tank fits neat

Does this light make my ass look big?

Ok,
Cosmetic opinion question. After a couple of hairy get-offs I thoroughly destroyed my Baja Designs headlight, signals, well... the whole fairing.

I am trying to figure what I should replace the headlight with.

Then I remembered the box of gear off my old Jeep!





I SPIT on your 8" Racelights!

This 10" Lightforce monster is focusable like a Maglite that may help with the rest of the motoring public.

What do you think? Too big? Just ridiculous? Full Disclosure: This is a cheap light solution. And, frankly, it is purely poser as I have next to no opportunity to ride in an environment that will allow me to really make use of this light, AND if I were in such an environment, my skill level would have me plowing into fixed objects, mother earth, other riders, etc.

So, better to give me a cosmetic opinion, than too much technical desert/trail performance advice. I know this thing will help me get home when the sun goes down. But, a little tech wouldn't hurt.

Thoughts? Comments? Smart Remarks?

I think it looks alright, if you do. might want to think of some type ofprotection for it though.
