Is this a normal casting mark on my XRR engine case or some kind of repair? Located on right side near rear brake arm. Anyone have similar markings in the same area?

Game off for now. See the green stuff? I don't think that's supposed to be there. Looks like a good time to change coolant. Lol.

Interesting - mine is identical. I took the cover off and it looked a bit stressed on the inside so I gave it a coat of JB Weld on the outside and called it good. I thought it was from something hitting it but I'm interested to hear if this is common.

It looks like a casting mark to me, it appears a thin layer flaked off, probably when it was removed from the mold. I doubt a welder could perform a repair that looked that good and usually when a case is repaired there will be a bead and heat marks or evidence that the weld was ground down.

I've seen this on my last 3 XR's. Normal.

Casting marks/lines seem to be normal. Went to see a friend with a 2002 XR650R and his bike has the same marks. Thank you!

Looks good to me, right? Seems a touch rich, but nothing extreme and surely nothing that would keep it from starting in the cold.

Not wanting to sound patronising but what is your kick/decomp routine?

Don't worry about that, call me an idiot if you see fit.

1. Push kicker slowly until hard spot
2. Pull compression release, push kicker about 1". Usually 'clicks' at that point, but has a slightly different feel either way. Hard to explain
3. Release compression release
4. Stand up and give a full kick through

Is that right? Maybe it's just me?

For a compression test I just put the tester on and kick like neck right? Make sure I hit the compression stroke?

I can't get it to go above 90...

That's my exact method, except I give it a bit more ass on the final kick. I believe I saw your video a few years ago when I first got the bike. Whatever my join date here is, got the xr a few days later. Not a coincidence. Lol.

I believe I've found my problem.

Sure doesn't feel that low though. Doesn't really use oil, no smoking, feels like it has plenty of power.
