I checked the swingarm space on my 2 bikes and they have a very small gap, almost snug.

When snug, mine has the space equivalent to one of the smaller L-shaped allen wrenches I have (2.5-4 mm, can't remember for sure). I use these to measure the gap to make sure it's centered in the frame.

Hmmm any idea what has gone wrong? Doesn't make sense. I wonder if I could wreck anything by riding it this way. Since im not missing any parts, the only other thing I can think of is the frame sprung back a bit.

Vapour power

[QUOTE=stevh0;22461829]Busy installing a trailtech vapor on my XRR. Any idea where I can get live power from?

Think the Vapor is happy with either AC or DC
If the SA XR's are like the Oz versions you can pick up DC if that's your preference from the DC supply that runs the indicators

Pm me an email and I will send you some pics of my setup
Regards

Speaking of the trailtech vapor, what is a good way to mount it? I have had mine sitting in the garage unused for a while.

I just used straight flat Aluminum stock about 4" long right off the bar clamp and it works great, and looks clean.

Sup with the mileage?

My BRP gets horrible mileage for some reason. On a ride with another BRP, at fill up I took one more gallon than the other bike. We started at the same place full of gas and rode the same speed. How is this possible? I think the float must be out of wack. Could the carb some how be dumping gas straight into the motor and not burning it off? It seems like fuel is being wasted by something from the floats. Last ride out, the float was sticking and pissed the whole time bringing this bad mileage and float situation to mind.
Since then, I cleaned the carb and adjusted the float to 16/17mm like the manual says. Will this help? The original reading was 19mm.
I know the XRR doesn't get great mileage but mine is horrible.

Help please.

BR,
If its the stocker I'd go back to 19mm
16/17 seems too high and it will likely leak out the overflow when on the side stand.
Certain my stock carb was set to 19 and it ran just fine, search the thread for info as it has come up a number of times.
Think OEM spec is 18 but at that level mine would leak out when on the side stand, 19 fixed the problem.

Of course riding style, gearing, altitude (especially if the bike is lying horizontal) will all affect mileage but it should not vary that much on a stock carby - pumpers are another story!

I found that 16/17 does make it leak on the side stand. Dang it. So I'm going to adjust it until it stops leaking. Thanks for the help.

all you former KTM owners out there....got some questions

I have big plans for next year. multiday, multi state, long distance trips coming up. right now i dual sport on an 07 KTM 450XC, which is fine for less than day trips. has a lot of work into it its setup nice and does what i ask of it. I am worried that long distance on slap, with me being 200lbs, with gear, and with extra fuel will result in a quick end to the motor, the sub frame, etc.

anyone jump the KTM ship and go to the XRR? I have read numerous posts on multiday, cross country, 1000 miles freeway stretches, all asphalt trips on the XRR. I cringe when i think about that on my KTM. I'm 30, only had a few bikes with the button, so im not too proud to kick.

keep in mind my KTM is a short stroke motor, the SX motor, with a hybrid 6 speed with close ratio 5 and 6. The power is all up high, its a race bike. it can be lugged. but i worry about getting into slower technical sections, with a loaded up bike and riding the clutch all the time to move the bike and the extra weight. so the bike revs great, but for long adventure riding, id much rather have more torque way low where it would be more usable.

I have been offered a trade off craigslist, for a plated 02, all setup, and turns out i know the guy. respect his build, and have no fear in it being a good condition bike.

Other than the no e start, being a bit heavier....which i would prefer for the longer rides on the road....what else would i be giving up?

i have heard the XRR suspension, once setup can be great! and im not that fast or hard on it to probably know. i know im not using the KTM to its potential.

from the looks of all these loaded up XRRs it looks to have a much stronger subframe as well.

who out there has swapped over from orange to red and has some feedback.

I prefer my XR when I expect any lengthy seat time,both my dirt bikes are registered.Prior to the Berg ,I had a 525exc.IMHO the Honda is the better bike for dual purpose.
