i had an edelbrock carb but was not impressed at all. my stock carb worked much better, even for starting. found a tm40 pumper fairly reasonable and it too sits on the shelf. just have no need to change the stock carb, the more i ride....i have finally (i think) got the routine down for about any type of starting with it as it sits.... but i don't have a bad knee either.....my wife does and i somewhat know what you are going through.

I will buy your tm40 if you want to get rid of it.

I loved my stock carb, but I do think a pumper is easier starting in the cold because with a twist of the throttle fuel is shot in to the intake. It seems easier than what I remember from the having a stocker. Plus, no choke to fiddle with.

I broke each knee twice. While Asterisk and a slow driving rescues.

Whats the highest other people are running?
I am currently running 4.75" tall ATV bars on an adjustable Applied Racing upper triple clamp (full forward) with stock cables slightly re-routed. I am 6'6", mostly above the waist, and this set up is pretty comfy sitting or standing.

I believe a handlebar has to be not higher than at these guys.
Otherwise the body position will be wrong.

Slow speed crashes (tipping over at >20 mph) have caused more damage to my body, even more than a 40mph impact in to a saturn automobile. Those cars are actually kind of soft, so if you are going to ram a car, make it a saturn.

I just went to ATV high bars and AVS billet levers and having trouble with too short a cable on compression release.I rerouted back from triple tree and just not enough length. Turn the handle bar to the right and it opens the release killing the motor

I got a 4.6 gallon tank from an inmate a while back and it needs to be cleaned out first. What should I be using?

Also I am currently getting 29.4mpg city mileage. I am stock carb + full uncork mods + FMF. Is that terrible?

EDIT: Also thanks everybody in this forum. I after many months I have my xr650r back on the street again thanks to your help. So much fun to ride.

slightly different topic: for those with usd conversions (front forks)...i am putting a set of crf450r forks (05 model) on my xr with a set of cr500 triples: going to use my xr wheel
what brake caliper bracket are they referring to when they say to use the 04 crf450 caliper bracket to position the caliper correctly. the more i look at the oem parts page, the more i get confused. i can not tell from the pic for sure, but i assume it is the bracket on the left in the pic i find - part number 45190-MEN-006
I know i saw it mentioned in a thread somewhere, but for the life of me, i can not find it now.
correct or ?

If it's bad, just use really hot water first. Close the tap, fill with really hot water and shake the hell out of it. While shaking, turn it upside down and pour it out of the fill hole. If needed, do it again. Once the garbage is out of it, put a pint of gasoline in it and shake it about again and drain that through the petcock to flush the remains and make sure most of the water is out of it. Re-mount and go about your business of riding the beast.....
